A Wine Tasting Trip Through Italy, Part 3 - Osteria via Stato Skip Navigation

Osteria via Stato

Thank you for choosing to dine with us. To help ensure the safety of our guests and employees during this time, we have set in place new dining standards. We sincerely appreciate your cooperation and loyalty.

We’re Making Dining Indoors Safer 

As dining moves indoors, our top priority remains our commitment to providing a safe, clean, and healthy experience.

That is why we are excited to implement technology developed by AIRPHX (pronounced “air-fix”) into all of our restaurants nationwide.  After extensive research and with the advice of experts, we’ve concluded that this is the best system for us.

Here’s how it works

AIRPHX features “cold plasma” chambers intended to kill harmful airborne and surface organisms throughout the day. Used in hospitals, healthcare facilities, Olympic training centers, universities, police and fire stations, and casinos, it eliminates 90-98% of influenza, coronaviruses, norovirus, hepatitis, salmonella, listeria, e.coli, and over 30 common bacteria and viruses both in the air and on surfaces.

This is just one more important step that we are taking to continue improving health and safety measures in our restaurants, and we want to thank you for your continued confidence in us.

Additional Safety Measures

Dine-in capacity will remain at 50% in the dining room, 50% on the patio.
We’re introducing disposable and digital menus and will maintain thorough sanitation procedures and continuous hand washing.
Guests are required to wear masks while in the restaurant, masks are required during all interactions with the service team and only to be removed when eating or drinking.
All guests must confirm they have not traveled to any area on the current travel restriction list within the last 14 days
To help offset restrictions on our business resulting from the COVID-19 crisis, a 5% surcharge has been added to all guest checks. If you would like this removed, please let us know.

Your continued support and patience during this time are truly appreciated. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.

We rounded out the trip near Siena, in Castelnuovo Berardenga, Chianti. Here we stayed with Lia Tolaini, owner of Tolaini wines. This is not your typical Chianti producer, as they focus most of their efforts on wines labeled as IGT, or Super Tuscans. The property dates back to the Etruscan times and they even have a tomb at the top of their Al Passo vineyard. This property was a lovely finish to the trip as it truly encompasses traditional and modern at the same time. The house we ate dinner in was built in the 1400’s and the winery is in an ancient estate. When you walk in however, you are surrounded by state of the art equipment, and they even have a lab on site for scientific tests of the berries. The team there is a group of young, ambitious, and extremely passionate people on a mission to catapult the wines to the next level. Look for their Valdisanti on our list to see what they are all about!
