    Burricotta sounds like the most heavenly type of cheese ever. EVER.

    I’ve always wanted to eat (or make) a raviolo with the egg yolk inside. One of these days….

    Did Osteria have the salted caramel pudding like Pizzeria Mozza does? I find it hard to not order that for dessert.

      Hi Leanne – I think burricotta is heavenly. I really loved the honeycomb they added with it, too. It was so tasty! Your dessert question just reminded me that I forgot to post pictures of the menu, hah. They did not have salted caramel pudding and I can’t believe I didn’t order that when I went to Pizzeria Mozza. Obviously I will need to revisit again STAT.

    OMG, both cheeses sound amazing. I didn’t know that raviolo meant a giant ravioli, hehe. It amused me a lot.

      Hi Jinxi! I don’t think it necessarily means giant, but in my mind that’s how I like to think of it 🙂 Oh man, I think you’d love all of the cheeses here, too! You’re my cheese friend.

  3. What an amazing dinner. I’ve yet to try Pizzeria Mozza here in SD because of the mixed reviews but maybe I will go since we don’t have Osteria.

    Anddd I need burricota in my life now plus so impressed you had calf brains AND quail in one dinner, you adventurous you!

      Hi J.S. – I like Pizzeria Mozza but I waited awhile before trying it out. Yes. Burricota. It wants to be in your life and know you. You must go meet it! I’m also impressed I tried calf brains without making a face. I just shrugged my shoulders and ate it. Hooray!

    For the record, I am a HUGE fan of cheese, just not of mozzarella. And the grilled octopus was the best I’ve ever had.

  5. All those cheeses sound so tempting! What a fun food road trip!

    Heh heh, seedy motel.

      So, so seedy. I can’t believe I didn’t take any photos. I subconsciously did not want to remember it but oh… I will remember it indeed. 🙂
