Antica Osteria

For one of my birthday meals, I asked to go to Antica Osteria
 They seated us in the table between the two houses... nice bread and butter while you wait.
 When you sit down, they immediately bring you bruchetta... which is very tasty.  
 We shared a beef carpaccio, which is slices of raw beef over a bed of arugula with slices of parmesan cheese on top.  It's good, highly recommend you to try it.
 If raw is not your thing, we also tried the proscuitto wrapped scallop, very good sauce and fresh scallops.
 For my entree, I had the veal piccata.  The capers goes well with the sauce and it is definitely creamy and a subtle bit of lemon in there.
For dessert, we split the tiramisu, it's not too sweet and it's a great way to top the meal.

The service is definitely top notch.  They were very on top of checking in, getting our food quickly.  So quickly that my friend ordered a cup of cappuccino and it arrived almost as soon as the server stepped away with our order.  The house does look small, but don't let it fool you, they do have upstair seatings and another house seating.  But making a reservation is always the best policy.
