I had wanted to visit Osteria Marzano for a while. Yet I held back fearing I would again beRead Moredisappo inted with yet another American-type Italian restaurant. I am very picky on Italian restaurants. How I long for Italy and the small Osterias and cafes with their own food specialties. Seeing the ad for the Nutella Pizza was just too much to resist any further! We arrived at about 3 pm and there were only a few people in the place. Just right! Starting off with a Peroni draft is always a good indicator of my idea of an Italian eating establishment. They also have a bottled double dark Marotti that I had never seen in Italia, but it was made in Italy. It had a smooth, nutty flavor. We started out with polpette, soprasatta/salami and prosciutto, plus a dish of pecorino with fig jam. We also had rustic bread with olive oil and some toasted bread that came with the meat cuts. Two polpettes (meatballs) were served either side of a very buttery soft flavorful mozzarella ball, all covered with a tomato sauce that screamed of fresh tomatoes. (If it came from a can I want to buy that brand for home use!) As others talked I sopped up the remaining tomato sauce with my bread and tried to act sophisticated doing so. (Hey, no one else was yet around us!) So far, everything was great! My wife, daughter and I commented spontaneously on how the meal so far reminded us of a hill-top Trattoria in Alto Adige. Then I readied myself in case I was disappointed with the next course. As we were about half way through our anti-pasta the waitress asked if she should put the order in right away for the pasta and secondi. We suggested a wait of about 5 minutes between courses would be about right. I ordered a glass of Montepulciano; very nice. Imagine our surprise when 5 minutes and some seconds after we finished the anti-pasta she started bringing out our next dishes. Brava! Nice Touch! So we had mezzaluna de zucca (sweetish squash): when done right this is an outstanding dish. It was outstanding. My wife had a ravioli of something. She always, always has leftovers to take home. Not today! Veal scallopini (often hard to find on menus) and a taliatelle with mushroom alfredo rounded out the orders. Nice, nice, very nice. Only then did hit us. Oh, no! This can't be. There was no room left for dessert! And the Nutella Pizza? So we waited some, and waited some more. Yet realized in spite of everything the Nutella Pizza would be on our list for the next visit. We all agreed we would cut down on the anti-pasta and pasta next time so we could have dessert. Yet we couldn't identify exactly what we would cut down on. I am a happy, happy patron and will return to the Osteria Marzano again and again. Good food, nice atmosphere, friendly staff. I like it! Reminds me of Italy is so many ways! Bravo!
