This casual, family-friendly Italian restaurant in Larchmont Village is as much of a place for dinner as it is for a lazy Sunday brunch or a glass of wine with friends. The kitchen (with chef Cameron Slaugh at the helm) uses seasonal, local ingredients to create classic Italian dishes: pizza, pasta, paninis, dry-aged rib eye, seafood and more. On Sundays, diners flock here for the polenta-ricotta skillet cake and Maria Verde, Osteria La Buca's modern take on the classic Bloody Mary.

I really enjoyed my brunch at Osteria La Buca.  They make a mean baked egg dish, which is very reminiscent to a classic Middle Eastern shakshuka. Their take on the Bloody Mary is also absolutely worth ordering!
