osteria ‎(plural osterias or osterie)

  1. A small local restaurant in Italy.
    • 2015 Aug. 13, Robert Draper, “In Italy, Hiking and Haute Cuisine in the Dolomites”, New York Times:
      And though the standard fare at the mountain osterias known as rifugios largely remains slabs of speck and strong local cheese, there are exceptions — most notably Col Alt, a rifugio above Corvara accessible only by ski lift, where meat dishes take the form of succulent venison or rabbit, and bottles of aged Barolo offer a noble complement to the soaring mountain vistas.
