Ovvio Osteria

Ovvio Osteria’s New Chef Richard Hetzler Showcases His Talent With Fall Menu

Winner of OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice 2014, Ovvio Osteria does a modern take on rustic Italian. There’s a new chef in town and Chef Richard Hetzler is making sure that his presence is known. A three course menu soon turned into a true family-style Italian dinner as the courses kept coming and our wine glasses never empty. With so many great options it was extremely hard to choose a favorite, but I managed to select my top seven. Il Cielo

What better way to begin a meal? This apéritif pleasantly named Il Cielo consisted of vodka, poached pear, and prosecco float. Slightly bubbly but not too fruity.

Baby Spinach Salad

Baby Spinach Salad with crispy pancetta, gorgonzola, grilled onions, white balsamic vinaigrette

(I made sure to eat this entire plate as I knew the carb overload would be thoroughly enjoyed.)

Bucatini all’Amatriciana

And then it commenced….the Bucatini all’Amatriciana topped with smoky pancetta provided a salty component that complemented the spiciness from the red pepper flakes.

Grilled Hanger Steak

Hello, I’m from Texas so of course I would love this Grilled Hanger Steak with carbonara onions, roasted new potato cake, and rosemary sauce. Extremely tender (served medium rare) please don’t order it any other way.

Veal Sweet Bread Ravioli

For all of our foodies who’ve supported Girl Meets Food from the beginning, you know we are all about the unconventional. This Veal Sweet Bread Ravioli was PHENOMENAL. Even fully aware of what I was eating, I couldn’t stop. It had to be the thyme brown butter sauce.



You can never go wrong with a classic.

Will I be back? Yes, I foresee many times. And word around town is they serve $1 mimosas for brunch. Say what?
