While this endeavor will be Demarchi’s second “Oliver’s,” the Trattoria will likely be more upscale than the Osteria. In fact, by definition, “a trattoria is an Italian-style eating establishment that is generally much less formal than a ristorante, but more formal than an osteria.” 

As for Oliver’s Osteria, it resides in illustrious Laguna Beach and serves up cuisine “from the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy.” 

Per the company’s website, the osteria “[showcases] home-made pasta, traditional recipes from [Demarchi’s] hometown, and an eclectic Italian-based wine list. Oliver’s is a true, authentic experience from the moment you walk in.”

It’s currently unclear what the menu at Oliver’s Trattoria will consist of, but given Demarchi’s 20+ years in the restaurant industry and lifelong accruement of culinary wisdom, Irvine is undoubtedly in for something delicious.
