We owe our entire souls to whoever invented pizza because bread covered in melty cheese is literally heaven on Earth. The holy grail of Italian food is basically life and most have eaten more than they'd like to admit. This new pizza restaurant in Charlotte brings even more versions of your fave pies and it's going to blow up your tastebuds.
Osteria LuCa is a super yum modern-but-authentic Italian spot opening in Charlotte tomorrow (January 15), and our hearts are already waiting at the door.
The true-to-Italy eatery has a menu that's enough to make your mouth water just by looking at it, and we can finally get our hands on it this week.
An added bonus is that you'll be eating food that's as delicious as it is high-quality, but it's still actually affordable. Each pie ranges from only $12 to $16.
You'll find 17 unique wood-fired pizzas like bacon and egg with potatoes and parmesan, garlic and clam, broccoli rabe and fennel sausage with red peppers and wild mushroom with caramelized onions, taleggio, fontina, and fresh thyme.
They also have appetizers and entrees that will make you feel like you're on the streets of Sicily.
These include fennel and fontina arancini, siano burrata and prosciutto di parma, chicken parmigiana, an antipasto board, and whipped ricotta with roasted apples, rosemary, balsamic and grilled bread.
Don't even get us started on the pasta dishes. Ricotta ravioli with brown butter and sage? We will take ten, please.
