When we are in the mood for Italian on the commute home, we like to get a table at Osteria Langhe – another Italian favourite that we discovered recently! Osteria Langhe specializes in northern Italian cuisine from the beautiful Piedmont region.
The food is exquisite served in a casual dining environment and you can pair it with any of the excellent European wines on offer. My favourite dish is the decadent plin – a hand-pinched ravioli filled with La Tur and Parmesan cheese prepared with thyme and butter sauce!! You can purchase frozen plin-to-go (comes with cooking instructions) to satiate your plin cravings at home too! A close second is their daily offering of risotto which is cooked to perfection.
The service is super friendly and knowledgeable and treat you with genuine Italian warmth sharing facts about the food as well as wine. This spot also have a number of specials during the week: Aperitivo hour with half off cocktails Tuesdays to Thursdays from 5:30 pm to 7 pm at the bar, Trifecta Tuesdays with a 3-course prix fixe menu for $38, half price signature cocktails on Mondays from 5:30 pm to midnight and Ragu special Sundays where you can get your unlimited Ragu fix for $19 per person. Ragu is a meat-based sauce usually served with a pasta – think Bolognese for example. The Trifecta Tuesday is an excellent choice to let you explore the menu by choosing an antipasti, a main and a dessert.
