Another awesome night spent at one of the best Italian Restaurant in Jakarta. Yes, it is Osteria Gia! Quite shocked when I entered the restaurant that night since it was really packed and they said it is always full everyday! Yes, you might better have your reservation beforehand. The restaurant itself is not so spacious but they have a really warm and live ambience. Service was excellent, especially when Chef Tommaso showed up and treated us with his best dish. He was so friendly and also funny to all of the guests.
I was having some of their signature dishes such as:
A vegetarian? This dish might suit you best. The combination between the roasted eggplant and mozzarella, parmigiano creme, and tomato sauce were really great. I really enjoyed eating the eggplant (am not a fan of eggplant tho), but it tasted really good. I love the tomato sauce too!
Dont like tomatoes? I think you should give this one a try. I didnt feel like eating tomatoes is torturing now since I ate this dish. The tomatoes was so fresh and didnt taste like tomatoes. Also, the pesto sauce did enhance the tomatoes flavour.
Penne Pesto Genovese
Perfectly cooked penne served with pesto sauce and chicken. Omg this is the best pesto i have ever tasted in my life seriously. Thanks to Chef Tommaso for making this dish real😆 the pesto sauce was so fragrant omg i can still imagine the smell. The chicken was also soooo juicy omg me want more!:")
Different way to eat pizza. Yeah, Calzone! This folded pizza was filled with artichoke, mushrooms, olive, ricotta cheese and onions. The filling was so generous. The spicy marinara sauce was really yums and gave more balance flavour to the calzone. So in love with this dipping sauce, cant stop saying "omg it is so yummy".
As a dessert, Nutella Pizza by Osteria Gia was one of the best to conclude the meal. Hey, I love their homemade peanut butter and also the roasted nut. It produced another great aroma to the pizza and another taste to the nutella spread. Purrfect!
Porcini Mushroom Ravioli
Seasonal menu for Valentines and I think I would miss this one someday. Omg the ravioli was great, texture was perfect. The pecan walnut sauce was so creamy and yummy, I did like it a lot.
So this is basically a slow braised chicken cooked together with cipollini onions, taggiasche olives and bacon in balsamic and wine for hours. So you can imagine it would turn out become one of the best dish from my last dinner at Osteria. The chicken was soooo tender and tasty. Oh ya, i also cant forget the bacon, it was so yum yum and gave another flavour to the dish
Made from polenta (cornmeal), fried and seasoned perfectly. This could accompany the Chicken Brasato or you can eat it alone, still good! Texture was really crispy on the outside and also a bit crispy in the inside. Seasoning was on point.
For drink, I tried Elderflower Mojito and Melon Cucumberita. Those were served beautifully, especially Melon Cucumberita.
All of them tasted so refreshing. Super like!
Overall, this was one of the best dining experience I've ever had in 2020. Cant wait for another visit and try another menu! I would surely recommend Osteria Gia to all of my friends.
