Osteria Due Amici.

This place certainly was worth the short trip to Upminster on bank holiday monday. Although it’s been open a while monday this was the first chance we had to visit and I can say now this will not be our last. This Italian restaurant is not a chain which to me is a plus and therefore menu is not just pizza and pasta. This to me makes you feel like your in a Italian restaurant. There’s plenty of room in the restaurant and all the seats are nice and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and you could already see from the other diners who came in that they’d built us a good reputation. While we looked at the menu we decided to have a nice cocktail and of course if your in a Italian it has to be an Aperol Spritz . We decided to start with the Osteria sharing plate consisting of Crab Arancini , Calamari , Beef Fillet Carpaccio with Proscuitto & Mozzarella Bruschetta and it was delicious


We then moved on to our main courses where we had the Mare Pizza full of Tiger Prawns , Crab Meat & Mussels while I went for the slow roasted Porchetta stuffed & marinated with herbs & spices , Sicilian roast potatoes & green beans simply Italy on a plate



It was then time for dessert and there was something I just had to try Italian doughnuts with cinnamon and a sweet musto cotto reduction & a chocolate sauce. We also had the delightful and refreshing Italian Sorbet



Well that finished our meal perfectly and after a nice Espresso it was time to head home.

This is a place I would definitely recommend as the food is good and the service is very friendly. I for one will certainly be back so Ciao for now 🇮🇹
