It’s a great time to be hungry in Bergen County, NJ. New, delicious restaurants housed in beautiful spaces seem to be popping up with delightful regularity. This week is no exception as the hotly anticipated new Italian farm to table restaurant, Osteria Crescendo opens its doors in Westwood NJ. We scored reservations and we were not disappointed!
Located on Jefferson Avenue in the old Baci space, Osteria Crescendo is helmed by chef/partner Robbie Felice who, after time spent in kitchens around the US and the world, returned home in 2016 to open Viaggio Ristorante in Wayne, NJ serving “locally sourced ingredients to create traditional Italian fare with a modern touch”. You’ll find the same culinary philosophy at Osteria Crescendo with their “per la tavola (for the table)” dining options like the Bistecca Fiorentina, intended to be shared by up to four people and Italian “street fare” offered at the bar.
