An "osteria" is loosely translated into a tavern, however nowadays it's more synonymous with good quality food and amazing wine selections! Lo'Steria, is a strange way of punctuating the word, however in this case it makes perfect sense. LO stands for Luca Ogliotti, the young but already well-known head chef, also an Executive Chef at Gambero Rosso!
This is an authentic roman osteria, serving delicious typical roman dishes like rigatoni in tomato sauce, the famous amatriciana pasta, saltimbocca alla romana, steamed baccala, stewed oxtail (coda alla vaccinara), meatballs in tomato or white wine sauce, and many more traditional staples. Each dish at Lo'Steria is prepared exactly according to tradition, simple and delicious, using only the best quality organic ingredients from San Bartolomeo eggs to homemade pasta.
The interior is simple and inviting with a few quirky design bonuses like the giant fork, knife and spoon on the front and kitchen doors instead of a handles.
Lo'Steria is definitely the right place for foodies and those who love good traditional roman cuisine!
