We create an inviting, cozy ambiance for your dinning experience and we strive to serve you with attention to detail. Dinner always includes antipasto, zuppa, pesce, home-made pasta, insalata, secondo, cheese plate, dolce and more. We serve our food on ceramic dinnerware that our resident potter creates. Please join us for a completely unique “Cena tradizionale Italiana”! EMAIL: 4osteriachiara@gmail.com for reservations and directions.

We had a an enthusiastic group of diners last Friday evening. The Cream of Celery soup and the Beef Barolo on Polenta seemed to be crowd pleasers.
This coming Monday, October 13th, Osteria Chiara's Steve Ferraris will be teaching a Ragu Bolognese class at the Lebanon COOP's Culinary Learning Center. You get to learn hands-on and you get a delicious dinner! Hope to see many of you there.
