About Osteria La Madia
Osteria La Madia is where two pleasures—great food and distinctive, delicious wines—come together. It is an urban Italian osteria that pays homage to traditional Italian cuisine, featuring house made pastas, anti pasti, salumi and prosciutto, formaggio, salads, and a full entrée selection. The robust wine list features more than 75 wines by the glass, a handsome bottled wine collection and some very crafty cocktails.
Fans of Osteria La Madia’s pizza are never disappointed. The award-winning fired-roasted selections were developed as a result of chef/owner Jonathan Fox tasting dozens of styles of pizza in the U.S. and Europe. Chef Fox put his own spin on this most elemental of dishes and the results are outstanding.
Osteria La Madia’s menu is designed for sharing, with flavor-packed, wood-fired pizzas that change seasonally, inventive salads, and savory pasta dishes. Desserts are all made on premises, in keeping with what is seasonally available.
In addition to wine, Osteria La Madia offers innovative cocktails, many of which are made from spirits infused in-house. Service is attentive, giving guests ample time to savor their food and drink in a relaxed yet up-tempo atmosphere.
