Osteria Baiocco review image

Osteria Baiocco

From the outside, Osteria Baiocco looks more like a sorority house than somewhere to get surprisingly great pasta - it’s a big brick building with white columns that quite possibly teleported here from Georgia. Inside, though, there are all the hallmarks of a neighborhood Italian spot: copper pans hanging on the wall, servers in white button-downs, and wine stacked to the ceiling. The space might be quirky, but the food here is straightforward and delicious. Start with the I fritti romani, a crispy little sampler platter of perfectly fried things like zucchini flowers, cod fish, and a tomato rice ball. Then move on to the fantastic pasta - the gnudi di spinaci e ricotta are delicious little spinach and ricotta dumplings and we could probably eat about 300 of them.
