Osteria 20 (Invited)

Osteria 20 is a spacey airy woody space in Hawthorn. Upon walking distances from the station and sit relatively close by to Rococo, Hakata Gensuke and my favourite gelato, Piccolina. It was a windy and cold Saturday lunch time with a lil bit of sun. I like the place instantly, with the half open window, making the place even larger, airy and bright. It would be great for an office function or even as simple as birthday. Prams are welcome since they have lots of space between the table.

I went in with a list of what I wanted to order on my mine but turns out they already have their own list so I went on with the flow and brace what to come. The coffee I ordered and the first dish takes a very long time to show up but then once they get things going, everything catch up pretty nicely.

Seafood Chowder ($16), Prosciutto Plate. The manager said that this is the Italian version of chowder, it's light watery potato soup with chunks of potato, ham and generous amount of seafood. I have no complain at all, love the lightness of the soup yet still give a nice warm on my stomach. I could eat this for days. Next up, is the prosciutto, love em, served with super delicious fresh tomato. Just simply a nice plate of goodness.

Funghi Pizza ($21) and Seafood Pescatore ($39) and The Pork Special of the day. The funghi pizza smell so nice, earthy and that dough smell.. Oh my. Taste good too, I would love stronger truffle oil please. I know I keep saying this but it's true. Then my favourite of the day, their pasta. Cooked nicely, seasoned strongly without over powering the generous fresh seafood on top. Love their moreton bay bug. About the pork, who does not love tender pork? My only critiscim is the crackling is way too hard to bite.

Hot Chocolate Fondant ($18). We were so full at this point but can't resist dessert. I don't normally like banana on my dessert but this one was light almost buried my the abundant of hot chocolate inside the cake.
