Ovvio Osteria is simply and authentically Italian. We are inspired by the cuisine of Calabria, in which straightforward preparations that may seem “obvious” celebrate seasonal flavors and local ingredients. We are guided by the bounty of the earth, and handcraft our deliciously unfussy antipasti, pizzas, pastas, and entrees using only what’s fresh and in season.

Led by Chef Giovanni Carlo, our team is committed to serving food that's refreshingly unfussy, scrumptiously straightforward. We use only the freshest ingredients, but do so in unexpected ways – from inspired pairings in our pastas and risottos to bold combinations on our flatbreads and pizzas. Our techniques may be simple, but the flavors are far beyond.
