Osteria Applausi Restaurant Review

: Osteria Applausi, one of three restaurants under the Marchetti-Tarantino family duo of restaurateurs, is a neighborhood favorite for locals seeking well-prepared Italian regional cuisine. What also distinguishes the restaurant from its competitors is pasta made fresh six days a week by the owner, Maria Marchetti. Enjoy appetizers such as grilled Italian sausage served over sautéed broccoli rabe, and pan-seared sea scallops wrapped with speck and presented atop mixed berries marmalade. Then one of Marchetti's homemade pastas is a must. We suggest potato gnocchi tossed with fresh tomatoes and red peppers purée. Do not overlook the house specialties that include slow-braised veal shank with saffron risotto. The wine list is dominated by Italian regional whites and reds, along with selections by the glass. For dessert, there’s panna cotta in flavors that change weekly, and whipped cream-filled cream puffs drizzled with a warm chocolate sauce.
