Osteria de Medici

restaurants / Italian

Lonely Planet review

Italian restaurants are ubiquitous in North America, but few are as good as their home-country counterparts. Fortunately, the grandiose Medici is one of an authentic minority with uncomplicated renditions of classic Italian dishes such as veal marsala and linguine alla vongole (mussels). The secret? The proprietor is from Molise (east of Rome) and half of the clientele are from Hollywood (if you believe the blurb).
