Opened in May 2014, Osteria Langhe is a Chicago neighborhood restaurant that celebrates the age-old traditions, cuisine and wine of Italy’s northwest Piemonte region. Inspired by the area’s unique culinary history influenced by Italian and French cultures, the restaurant emulates Piemonte’s penchant for ingredient-driven food combined with simple yet hearty peasant dishes. Under Culinary Director Michael Lanzerotte, Osteria Langhe's menu is dedicated to sourcing meats and produce from local farms, an homage to the Slow Food movement born in Piemonte and highlights traditional preparations of regional dishes like seasonal risotto, carne cruda using Piedmontese beef, prosciutto-wrapped rabbit loins, housemade plin ravioli and more. To accompany each meal, guests can enjoy a wine list featuring distinct reds, whites and sparkling wines exclusively from the Piemonte region and curated by Wine Director-Owner Aldo Zaninotto, as well as a selection of handcrafted cocktails and an array of aperitifs from Beverage Director Ashley Akers. The cozy 68 seat dining room of the osteria boasts a large, paneled glass facade, rustic wood tables and Italian art with additional seating options available at an intimate bar and seasonal patio. Through its tenure as a beloved gathering spot in the Logan Square community, Osteria Langhe has been a three-time Jean Banchet award nominee, was named one of the Best Italian Restaurants in America by Time Out (2017) and Thrillist (2018), as well as Best Italian Restaurant in Chicago by Italian food & wine magazine Gambero Rosso (2017).
