Northern VA Elites Fall into Italy at Ovvio Osteria

Last night, Northern Virginian Elites gathered at new Italian restaurant Ovvio Osteria for an Autumnal food smorgasbord! Located in the brand spankin' new Merrifield development Halstead Square, Ovvio Osteria offered up a sampling of items from their seasonal, locally-sourced, and absolutely delicious menu.

Between the three-meat meatballs, seemingly endless pizza bar, antipasti table (with house-made burrata!), olive tasting station, butternut squash risotto (!!), AND display of sweet treats at the end, you can be sure no Yelper went hungry!

Ovvio Caricature
For those who wanted to take home more than a biscotti care package, a caricature artist was there to draw up adorable (and hilarious) portraits of guests in between wine tastings.

All in all, an outstanding night full of wonderful food, fabulous company, and more raffle prizes than you could shake a stick at. Don't believe me? Check out the reviews for Yelp Falls into Italy as well as the full album of photos from the night on Flickr and Facebook!
