At OSTERIA LA MADIA, two pleasures – great food and distinctive, delicious wines – come together.

After tasting dozens of styles of pizza in the U.S. and Europe, chef/owner Jonathan Fox knew he could put his own spin on this most elemental of dishes. And after testing and re-testing his pizza recipe, he knew he could build a restaurant around it.

Named for an Italian cabinet traditionally used to knead dough and store bread, La Madia is an urban restaurant that upholds Italian tradition. Every day, our chefs make our pizza dough and fresh pasta from scratch from little more than flour, water, and salt.

Our menu is designed for sharing, with flavor-packed, wood-fired pizzas that change seasonally, inventive salads, and savory pasta dishes. Desserts are all made on the premises, in keeping with what’s available in the market.

The wine list is a wine lover’s dream, with more than 75 wines by the glass and hundreds of bottles. And every week, we feature two of our favorite wines for just $5 per glass.

In addition to wine, La Madia offers innovative cocktails, many of which are made from spirits infused in-house. Our service is attentive, and we give guests ample time to savor their food and drink in a relaxed yet up-tempo atmosphere.

When friends ask you to suggest a sleek yet comfortable place for a relaxed meal, we want La Madia to be the name on your lips.
