Part of Schulson Collective

Less than a year after conception, February 15, 2007, Osteria opened its doors to the public, and, still in its infancy continues to stay true to the dream that three owners had standing on Ca’ Marcanda vineyards in Tuscany. A traditional Italian Osteria, where you can choose from our homemade pastas, thin crust pizzas, or wood grilled meats and fish.

As much as Vetri is small and intimate, with a rustic farmhouse feel, Osteria is classically designed to have a warm, evocative feel in an industrial setting. With wine-red-stained concrete floors, antique Berkel slicers, a gleaming vintage Faema coffee machine, solid antique pine country tables, a wall of beautifully stained wine boxes and view of a “vecchia chiesa” so spectacular that it rivals any this side of the Atlantic. Additionally, the menu changes seasonally, to go with our 100 bottle Italian wine list featuring grapes from Trentino to Sicily and all stops in between.
