    Osteria Morini has Michael White, king of fancy Italian, digging bare-handed and happy to get back to the roots of rustic Italian in all its uncomplicated, soulful glory. An open kitchen, picture-studded brick walls, and small wooden tables with green and white chairs set a suitably homey scene for the hearty cuisine of Emilia-Romagna. Chef Bill Dorrler heads the kitchen that delivers the unassailable perfection of simple Italian food, as when prosciutto cuts through the lavish richness of butter-coated truffled mascarpone ravioli. Pastry Chef Brian Sullivan infuses fresh flavors (not to mention fine-dining execution) into classic Italian desserts while keeping them familiar enough that they jive with Osteria Morini’s low-key magic.
