Dining room at Osteria, Philadelphia, PA

Osteria Restaurant Review

: Located along North Broad Street, Marc Vetri’s Osteria is a rustic take on an Italian trattoria. The focus is on thin-crust pizzas fired in the wood-burning oven, a daily antipasto offering, creative pasta combos and a handful of entrées that reflect chef Jeffrey Michaud’s commitment to Italian cuisine. Pizza purists can get a margherita, but options also include the Lombarda, made with baked egg, Bitto cheese and cotechino sausage. Or how about a topping of polpo --- octopus with tomatoes, smoked mozzarella and a dash of chili flakes? House-made Italian meats and sausages adorn the salumi plate. Secondi range from spit-roasted lamb braciole with baby turnips and rapini to a seared skate wing with celery root, cockles and Meyer lemon. The dessert line-up includes the unusual blood orange upside-down polenta cake with kumquat caramel. Servers are armed with iPad wine lists --- an interesting way to choose your vino. Osteria has an offshoot in South Jersey's Moorestown Mall.
