Be a Guest, Not Just a Diner

In Italian, an osteria is a place where the owner is a host to his guests, an expression that elevates the dining experience to a personal level. With the comfortable surroundings and open-kitchen design, you can see your meal being prepared. But be prepared yourself, for this is authentic Italian cuisine as practiced in the northern region of Emilia-Romagna. That is to say, the tastes are familiar, yet beyond what you expect.

Lunches and dinners go beyond simple entrees. You can choose crostini and antipasti to begin, but consider the battilardo di affettati - a selection of cured sliced meats served with grilled bread and Italian cheeses. Weekend brunches are not the usual fare: Choose from a variety of pastas, soups and sandwiches. Or, you can have ricotta pancakes or poached eggs with shrimp. The food and the view of the Navy Yard make Osteria Morini a wonderful experience.
