Osteria Nino on Third Ave in Burlington caught my eye when they started to offer lunch combo specials. For $9.50, guests can choose a panini, pizza or pasta dish from a special list - in addition to a glass of wine or beer AND a huge garden salad. That is a STEAL!!
My coworkers and I visited a couple of times. The popular choice seemed to be the prosciutto panini with mozzarella, arugula, fig jam on a ciabetta roll. The sandwich is served with delicious crunchy house made chips, similar to a kettle cooked version.

For pasta dishes, the choices are chicken broccoli ziti or spinach & ricotta raviloi. The chicken broccoli was popular.
The "side salad" were huge. It was the size of a full salad and the red wine vinaigrette is delicious.
One of the guys chose an Italian beer for his drink of choice to go with his meal.
I finished my wine pretty quick so I ordered a fruity mango mojito.

It's a great place with a nice outdoor patio. We will definitely be back!
