Virtu Honest Craft in Scottsdale: Serving Simplicity Refined With Mediterranean Flavor
Chef Gio Osso's dishes are as pretty as they are tasty.
Chef Gio Osso is getting a lot of acclaim from his new restaurant in Old Town Scottsdale and it's pretty easy to see why once you get a taste. From his artful presentation to his subtle hand at seasoning, his dishes showcase each component with confidence and finesse. Seared ahi tuna, smokey charred octopus, and fresh pasta are featured on the menu now, but his ever-changing menu will keep you coming back time and time again to see what Osso has up his sleeve at Virtu Honest Craft.
Here's an excerpt from this week's review:
"As you dig into a plate of creamy burrata, paired with roasted peppers, capers, olives, and crispy prosciutto, you'll instantly notice how each component on the plate can stand alone and be entirely satisfying -- each piece is seasoned perfectly. When you put the elements of the appetizer together, it's like a symphony of sweet, smoky, and briny atop a crunchy, slightly charred, and sinfully buttery crostini that will linger in the back of your mind for days, weeks, even months to come."
