Within less than four years, Osteria Langhe has found its way into the hearts of Chicago’s food and wine lovers. It has a precise identity and a focused, solid menu. It’s one of those restaurants where you go happily, certain you’ll feel comfortable and it’s the perfect place to enjoy a bottle of real, territorial wine, whether it’s a Carema or a Grignolino, a Barbera or a great Barolo from a memorable vintage. The wine list gots character and fair prices. We still remember risotto cooked to just the right texture, well-made ravioli al plin and a comforting panna cotta. For us, this is one of best traditional Italian place in the city. Recently, Aldo and Cameron opened up a second restaurant in Bucktown. Animale is a more casual Italian dining place, with a centered focus on street food recipes.
