What's an Osteria
Osteria have always been a staple of Italian dining culture.
Back in the days, it used to be a place serving wine and simple food...
In the last 30 years, with the introduction of the slow food movement. Osteria got a relevant role in the Italian dining scene.
Emphasis shifted to food made with local produce, short menus and
specialties such as house made pasta, served to share in the middle of the table.
Our aim at Osteria Morelli is to showcase all the beautiful produce of the Northern Rives, using Italian techniques and principles.
On the menu you will find lots of home made Pastas, daily baked Focaccia, fruit & veggies from amazing local farmers & only the best meat and fish available on the day.
You can also find most of the produce we use on the menu in the best grocers, deli & restaurants in the area, under the name Morelli Fresh.
