Filippo Cortivo's Next Restaurant Revealed: From Osteria La Buca to Osteria Mamma

New, 1 comment

Hearts broke and stomaches grew empty after hearing of Filippo Cortivo and "Mamma's" abrupt departure from Osteria La Buca back in October. But, good news, Filippo and Mamma are back in business at newbie Osteria Mamma, set to debut in just two weeks. Situated down the block from La Buca also on Melrose in Hancock Park, Osteria Mamma has claimed that totally bizarre corner space that once housed Seafood Village, renovations of which just finished today. The aptly titled Osteria Mamma will serve none other than the stuff that made La Buca famous... "Mamma's food" according to Cortivo. Think simple, pared-down, rustic, homestyle Italian dishes from salad to dessert.
