Sitting in Osteria with its light wooden tables, picture covered walls and the rustic bread/olive station, the general feeling is of Italian Nostalgia; cosy, homey and an expectation of good food.
Sharing a starter of tomatoes and mozzarella salad the meal started out brilliantly. This salad is so easy to get right, yet is also extremely common to get wrong. Osterias version was spot on, with vine picked tomatoes boasting deep earthy flavours and exceptionally creamy cheese, this dish hit the mark. One thing it was missing however was more basil, which would’ve made every fork-full just that little bit better.
