We all had a great dinner in June, enjoying gorgeous summer weather and good company and my favorite dish of the night, the Italian Pesce Crudo, otherwise known as ceviche! The crudo included Red Snapper, Swordfish and Sea Bass. Our next dinner is coming right up on Saturday, July 12th. We are all very excited about welcoming our guests, as is the Osteria Chiara custom, with freshly baked wood-oven pizza as the first of many antipasti.

Now for the big news! Instead of having our usual first Saturday of the month dinner in August, we are having a very special event on Sunday August 10th. Our friend and Steve's musical colleague, the extraordinary Italian pianist/singer/songwriter Raphael Gualazzi will play a special concert at Osteria Chiara. Raphael has established himself as a prominent artist on the European circuit over the last four years. Don't miss this special opportunity to experience his prowess up close and personal on Sunday August 10th. Also, the pizza oven will be fired up and cooking pizza.

We have always tried to give our guests an authentic Italian dining experience at Osteria Chiara.
We now have the opportunity to offer you a truly authentic Italian musical experience by presenting our friend and Steve’s musical colleague Raphael Gualazzi in concert at the Osteria in August for an evening/afternoon of virtuoso piano playing and original music by this extraordinarily talented musician.
Raphael is now very popular in Europe based on his winning the Italian San Remo singer/songwriter contest in 2010 and then representing Italy in the Eurovision contest in 2011. He was the first Italian invited to the Eurovision contest in 14 years and he placed 2nd!
Here is a link to his Sugar Records (Milan) EPK video:
Here is Steve’s favorite song called “Tuesday” from the Reality and Fantasy CD
As one Osteria Chiara patron said after listening to Raphael:
So amazing! A real showman; very captivating, classy and playful- not to mention complex musically!... Bravo 
So mark your calendars now for Sunday August 10th for an outdoor, intimate musical experience with the Raphael Gualazzi Quartet including Osteria Chiara cook Steve Ferraris on percussion, John Rivers on bass and Gabe Jarrett on drums.
