Inspired by the tradition of Italian Osteria!

The Osteria at Domenico Winery is a playful eatery and bar, drawing inspiration from an aspiring post-war Italy, where street cafes were brimming with life and passion.

Keeping up with the tradition of Italian Osterie, we offer timeless fare like cicchetti (small plates), pizza, casual bites, wine, and espresso. We also have to-go bites like sandwiches and panini for those on their lunch break. Join us for a wine tasting, small bites, lunch, or dinner five days a week.

The Menu

The inspiration for our restaurant comes from the owners’ (Dominick and Gloria Chirichillo) Italian heritage and an upbringing centered around family, food, and wine. After 15+ years of making wine at their San Carlos winery, the Chirichillos passion for food was reignited while touring the Italian countryside, spending afternoons sipping and dining in picturesque Osterie.

By using these memories as a guide, Chef de Cuisine, Mark Laverty, has developed a menu based on what Osterie traditionally offered: clean, simple cuisine that utilizes local ingredients and showcases regional specialties as often as possible (all while complimenting the wine, of course). To do this, we have built relationships with some of the best farmers and purveyors in the Bay Area. We’re blessed to be able to access some of the best ingredients in the nation with ease, and do not intend to take that for granted.

In addition to our larger plates, we are proud to offer an array of Cicchetti (also sometimes spelled “cichetti” or called “cicheti”), which are small snacks or side dishes, typically served in traditional osterie. Similar to Spanish tapas, you can enjoy a light meal of cichetti with a glass of wine, or choose to make a meal out of multiple plates. Cicchetti are generally enjoyed in social settings, with fingers or toothpicks, and can be eaten all day long. These small plates are usually accompanied by a small glass of local white wine, referred to as an “ombra” (shadow in Italian).

The Space

Set against a black and white interior that evokes the spirit of 1950’s Italy, the Osteria features an open view kitchen, burnished concrete walls, and Calacatta marble wine bar, conjuring feelings of nostalgia lifted from an Italian postcard. This bright eatery, where vintage style meets contemporary spirit, sits apart from the rest with its simple sophistication and old fashioned character. We are a counter-service restaurant, so please stop by the cashier to order your food before taking a seat.
