Being chosen to pick the location of a goodbye dinner is a potentially stressful undertaking. This is especially true when the person chosen to pick the location is me and the person moving is a food aficionado. But, Osteria Langhe has been on my list for quite sometime after rave reviews from friends and enemies alike.
The cozy candlelit interior was almost as warm and inviting as our sweet waiter. The flavor pairings were unique and satisfying and the breadsticks in vintage tomato cans were dangerously addictive. After a fantastic dinner, I can safely say that my reputation is still intact, and Osteria Langhe was quickly moved to the top of my short list of go-to favorites.
I have always felt that it is hard to mess up Italian food, but it is equally challenging to make it stand out from the crowd. This restaurant hits all the marks. The fan favorite was the whole snapper, which we devoured down to the fins. The only minor disappointment was the Burro E Salvia, which was a bit reminiscent of Lipton’s noodle soup. Bonus: I live tweeted with their social media person during the meal! See the deliciousness below.
