The Osteria Chiara staff includes members of three families. Together we grow, gather, procure and purchase the finest ingredients available for each special Italian style dinner that we present. 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.
