Prices: Moderate (BYOB)
The other day we had another terrific dinner at Vecchia Osteria by Pasquale, located in Newtown, PA. We have done several reviews of restaurants in Newtown. The town is quaint and upscale and full of life’s good things. Anyway, we have been to Vecchia Osteria before and decided to do a review tonight.
We were very fortunate to have Salvatore as our server again. He is warm, professional and has a great Italian accent to match the delicious food.
Vecchia Osteria is small and has a cozy atmosphere. The servers are all very welcoming as well as Pasquale himself. During the warm weather, they have a huge outdoor seating area which we look forward to enjoying as soon as the warm weather arrives.
The menu of V.O. has many traditional Italian appetizers, soups, salads, pasta and meat and seafood entrees. There is something for everyone.
Salavatore brought over a delicious assortment of marinated roasted Italian vegetables and cheeses to start with. In addition, he brought over some delicious Italian bread and delectable olive oil for dipping. For appetizers, we decided on the special for the evening, the Fried Zucchini Blossoms. These are always a favorite of ours, when restaurants offer them, and they did not disappoint! The breading was delicate and the blossoms were filled with delicious gooey cheese! Yummy!
For dinner, Ria ordered the Vitello alla Parmigiana with a side of Angel Hair Pasta. Ren and I ordered the Pollo alla Parmigiana. Wow! All of them were simply delicious with BIG portions to boot. The bread crumbs are of the panko variety which is one of our favorites. The cheese is buffalo mozzarella which adds to the really wonderful taste of the perfectly prepared meat. Our entrees came with the roasted potatoes which are amazing. Our dinners left us wanting to come back very soon.
Ria left a bit of room for dessert so she ordered the Tiramisu. She really loved it. It really made her go “Mmmmm.”.
Our two experiences at Vecchia Osteria have really been awesome. Salvatore is excellent. He always makes us feel right at home. Thank you, Pasquale for the special treat as well. You really know how to make everyone want to come back for more.
