Osteria Nino Burlington

I have been very pleased with my visits to Osteria Nino on 3rd Avenue in Burlington, so I decided to check out their Brunch today.

The outside pizza oven was not in action today.

I decided to start with a cup of Soup of the Day that was a Tuscan Bean soup ($3.95). The soup was excellent with nicely cooked veggies and beans, and it was seasoned really well.

This was described on the menu as "steak & eggs (15.95) toast, home fries, sunny side up eggs". Not sure how the English Muffins took the place of the toast. No, it's not the same thing. Do you want your eggs benedict on toast? One egg was cooked well, the other one was a bit snotty on top. The home fries was way overcooked and mushy and showed no sign of browning. Unfortunately, the same could be said for the steak, didn't look browned at all. The steak was ordered rare and come out medium, at best. Despite that, it was tender and juicy and really tasty. Of course, liberal amounts of salt and pepper helped.

The counter seating overlooking the pizza station is very nice.
