La Parolaccia Osteria Italiana Restaurant Review

: Casual, charming La Parolaccia (translation: “the bad language”) is a modest Italian eatery, serving a neighborhood clientele. A series of three rooms decked out with travel posters, soccer paraphernalia and Ferrari-oriented collectables (even a Vespa), La Parolaccia is the kind of place you order an unpretentious carafe of Chianti and begin a meal with caprese, carpaccio or calamari. The wood-burning oven produces authentic thin-crusted pizzas and hefty calzones. Pastas, such as the classic meat lasagna or the al dente linguine with clams and artichokes in a white wine and garlic sauce, are very reliable. Entrées include chicken Parmigiana and veal scaloppine. Be sure to follow that with any of the homemade tarts or tiramisu. The wine list, though limited, offers several lesser-known Italian varietals by the glass. Also located at 201 N. Indian Hill, Claremont, 909-624-1516.
