If it's a classy meal, served modestly by people who know more about fine food than you, search out this hidden gem of a restaurant, cloaked under the impression of 'Osteria', by walking the humungous hump between the rightly-crowded beach and the mega-busy, one-street, essential...More

We arrived in town late after traveling here from the states. Wanted an informal spot with good food. Our concierge recommended Osteria. We had a steak tartare appetizer and two wonderful pasta dishes. The food was a wonderful surprise. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
