Mauro's in Ossining

We recently dined in Mauro's for the first time since the new chef took over--we enjoyed it very much. The dining room is attractive, and the service was good. A bread basket containing a few varieties of fresh, warm crusty bread along with a lovely green extra virgin olive oil for dipping was terrific. The kitchen graciously split and plated our shared appetizer, pasta and main course. As an appetizer we had beef carpaccio, which was served on lightly dressed arugula with slivers of parmesan. Our pasta was papardelle with oxtail ragu--the ragu was perfectly seasoned and delicious. Our main was chicken on the bone, which was wonderfully crispy, with potatoes, sausage and hot cherry peppers. For dessert we shared a slice of fabulous housemade ricotta cheesecake, which was moist and sweet. Prices are reasonable for the quality of food, and they even have a rather large assortment of $18 per bottle wines.
