Regional Piedmontese cuisine is Osteria Langhe's focus, and that means ingredients like truffles, cream and eggy pastas appear on the menu. The space is warm and cozy, and you'll want to order a bottle of well-chosen wine for the table before diving into the food. The plin, miniature agnolotti filled with cheese, are beautiful and light; the beef tartare is impeccably seasoned; and the vitello tonnato tops tender slices of beef with a vibrant tuna citrus caper aioli. In case you needed further proof that Osteria Langhe has elevated Chicago's Italian restaurant scene, order the creamy panna cotta to finish the evening.

This lil LS neighborhood restaurant is within walking distance to us + they always seem to remember us + make us feel very welcome. The food is 'amazing' - the wine + cockatails are just as good! They have fun special offerings and sometimes have 1/2 off cocktails at the bar where you can get some frozen 'Plin' to go!
I had a wonderful experience at Osteria Langhe. This was my second time here and it continues to meet expectations. The Lumache Slow Food was a great Italian twist to a traditional French dish escargot. I have not had snail confit before and it was beyond exquisite. The Vitello Tonnato (poached piemontese beef, crispy duck egg, tuna citrus caper aioli) was an explosion in your mouth -- many different flavors that worked together. The Coniglio was divine -- crispy, tender and flavorful. Every bite was heaven -- this is how meat should taste. Finally for as simple as Tajarin is (house made noodles and meat ragu), you can't pass us house made noodles -- it is a new flavor to a classic dish. If you are looking for a lighter item, the Tajarin is the way to go.
This restaurant is perfect for a nice Friday or Saturday night out. The bill can add up quickly, but you won't be disappointed. Fantastic service, good beer and wine selection, great Italian food. You'll definitely want to make a reservation.
