  • 55. Milk-roasted pork at L'Osteria del Forno (from 7x7's 100 Things to Try Before You Die | http://tr.im/7x7list)
  • One of the only places I will eat Italian food. Ask for Wally, Susanna, or Richard. Tell them La Bestia Sent you ;)
  • Roast beef was bland. Pancetta sandwich way salty. Service not great, never checked in with us or gave us bread.
  • Homemade cheese raviolis
  • Tiny Italian homemade food restaurant. The best ravioli I ever had. The staff could be friendlier.
  • Incredible small place in Little Italy. Doesn't take reservations & cash only, but definitely worth the effort!
  • Go Early. Be there when the doors open.
  • Try the Cured Meat - Small plate of appetiser that went really well with a glass of Pinot.
  • Ham and artichoke pizza was delicious. Also recommend the sweet red pepper appetizer. So good and love that we could byob!
  • Warning: this is a Cash Only restaurant. We discovered that AFTER the check came.
  • The lamb is tender
  • Very delicious roasted hen.
  • Everything!
  • Excellent Italian food. Hidden gem. Small place. Ask about specials
  • Graet pizza!
  • Holy smokes, I thought I knew what focaccia was but it turns out I DIDN'T. In L'Osteria del Forno's capable hands it is a buttery, toasty, soft yet also crunchy piece of heaven!
  • This place is cash only
  • Crespelle and Arrosto are favorites. If there's a line it's worth the wait. Cash only.
  • Simple wholesome food. Pizza sauce is sattvic, and yummy.
  • The grandma's Tiramisu is amazing!
