Despite having intentions of dining elsewhere, the curbside appeal of this cute little Italian restaurant drew me in like a moth to the flame. Luckily, the food was just as delicious as the restaurant is quaint and beautiful.

The fresh, homemade pasta is definitely the star of the show here, although the menu is rather extensive featuring also a range of tartars as appetizers, risottos and other Italian-style main dishes.

My chosen dish consisted of fresh pasta with sausage, which I opted to wash down with a few glasses the house red. Both are highly recommended, although I have certainly done you all a disservice by not noting down any further relevant information about them. 😅🙈 I blame the few glasses of wine for this mistake! I do remember that the tiramisu for dessert was an unexpectedly large portion, though!

The prices were appropriate given the ambiance of the restaurant and the quality of the food. Keep in mind, ALL their dishes feature fresh pasta (no cutting corners here!). With just 4-5 tables in front dining room, this is an ideal venue for a romantic evening out with your partner.

Despite me being alone and the last table left in the restaurant, when I am sure the waiters would have liked to go home, they continued to serve me with a smile and left absolutely no impression that I was in any way bothersome. They remained super polite and hospitable throughout, worthy of a decent tip, for sure!

Sticky-beaking a bit at the other guests, too, I have to say everyone seemed more than satisfied with their meals and left with smiles on their faces. Since posting about the restaurant, I’ve even had a few people mention how good this place is, so clearly, I am not alone in this recommendation! Apparently I need to try the L’osteria Ravioli next time. Check out L’Osteria and try their delicious fresh pastas for yourself! Let me know which one you think is the best!
