From the creator of Firecakes, La Madia translates from Italian to mean "bread box" and the table is set with a nice basket of doughnut holes bringing the concept together.

Located on 59 W. Grand Avenue in Downtown Chicago, the place has a rustic but modern feel to it.

With summer around the corner, there is a new Italian brunch spotlighted and served every Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The bloody Mary was rich and thick while the prosecco gave a variety in flavors including peach.

Lots of options are there to start with such as the salmon belly crostini or potato fritters with house made yogurt.

That brioche cinnamon roll was humongous! The bourbon icing with walnuts was not only delicious but filling.

The fried egg bruscetta is a must try with sausage, bacon, and spinach all included.

There are several pizzas made to order such as one made with Slagel Farms smoked pork belly or a triple pepperoni hoping to appease the meat lover in the family.

For brunch the pizzas can be made with breakfast ingedients like fingerling potatoes and egg yolk.

Osteria La Madia is not only an excellent place to bring friends but has the high end quality cuisine to go along with it.
