Intimate Weddings with a Tuscan Flair at Osteria Cucina Rustica |Iryna Shostak New Jersey Weddings

Born of a love for food and family, Osteria Cucina Rustica is the brainchild of life-long friends Executive Chef Steven Botta and Angelo Bongiovanni. Their joint passion for food and creating a space for friends and family to dine on top-notch dishes in a comfortable, yet elegant setting, lends itself wonderfully to hosting intimate weddings in Marlboro, New Jersey. In Italian, Osteria means “a place where the owner hosts his guests,” and as such, hospitality is the cornerstone of the Osteria values.

Executive Chef Botta and Bongiovanni carefully crafted a space as spectacular as their menu. From the exposed beams, the limestone walls, and the gorgeous reclaimed wood floors which were hand-made from materials over 100 years old.

Centerpiece of the space is the wood-fired oven, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere. The brick décor is lit up by the natural light from the bay of windows that face the bar, a fun and creative spot to capture some inspired couple portraits.

In the reception area, the raw space is warmed by wagon-wheel style candelabra’s above while candles line the tables. Custom menus are created using the freshest, local ingredients using family recipes that have been passed down for generations.

Friends and family will dine outstanding dishes expertly prepared, not the least of which is the house-made pasta and fresh seafood dishes that keep the restaurant booked out for two to four weeks year-round. Served family-style, or at rounds, this world-class cuisine is paired with hand-picked, fine wines.

Hosting a wedding Osteria is an intimate affair where everyone is treading like family. Simple, chic, and delicious Osteria offers couples the opportunity to create a Tuscan inspired evening for friends and family to toast their union in style.

The exterior has a fun, Tuscan vibe with deep, vibrant colors and unique décor. It’s fun to gather the wedding party outside to create formal and candid portraits in this relaxed, family-friendly environment. An outstanding and inspired space, Osteria is an ideal spot for couples who wish to have an intimate gathering of friends and family.
