"L’Oca d’Oro (The Golden Goose) is a celebration of community, locality, and the warm, simple connections that a great neighborhood restaurant should promote. Named for Chef Tedesco’s daughter, affectionately referred to as Lucy Goose, the L’Oca d’Oro dining experience is designed with family in mind. Free of performance and affectations, we offer gracious, inclusive hospitality and approachable reimaginings of hand-crafted Italian culinary traditions in a familiar, convivial setting.

In true Italian fashion, our seasonal and prix fixe Dinner Series menus are an appreciation of regionalism. They feature our interpretations of dishes from The Veneto to Sicily, crafted entirely from ingredients sourced within a short radius of our kitchen door. Our pastas are made by our hands from freshly milled grains. Most of our bread, cheese, vinegars, and liqueurs are created in-house as well. Wine pairings for the season’s featured menus are available in flights, or our hosts will gladly help you select from our ever changing drink list.

Our dedication to treating our farmers, their ingredients, our guests, our team and the local community with equal care is uncompromising. When you dine with us, you become—if only for an evening—part of a community of kindred spirits that is reviving the lost art of togetherness."

The focaccia was great, as were the carrots with pistachio butter! All the food was very good! Waist staff were friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was nice later on in the evening, but when we arrived for our 6pm dinner there were two little children running around the restaurant and playing. We figured they were with the staff as they were running back and forth from the private back room. For a fancy and pricey restaurant, we found this a bit disruptive.



Meal was very good! The portion sizes are fairly small but everything was good. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, very farmhouse modern. Service was great!



We had the cauliflower Parmesan, which was great - much lighter than eggplant parm. We also had the rigatoni, which was good, if a bit bland. The shrimp zeppole were great - airy and light. The wine list doesn’t offer much choice by the glass.
