The Skinny: Let’s get this out of the way first — I was with a group of former co-workers the night we visited the very busy Mario’s Osteria. It was a large table, with multiple checks, and our servers handled it all with aplomb. It was lovely to see a team that was so well organized.
Fortunately the food matched the service. The half-dozen or so ravioli lived up to their “big” name. The tender, ricotta-packed pasta was served in a hearty, meaty Bolognese sauce that was loaded with tomato goodness.
