Small family run business. Only 1 waiter/owner but competent. Excellent wine selection & enjoyed our meals. Portions of pasta not huge which is an added bonus. Save room for the home made desserts.

After two evenings of pizza I decided on a change and could not have made a better choice than this. A delightful, small restaurant, with a super selection of wines and traditional Neapolitan fare (no pizza). The food was simple, very tasty and well presented....More

The food is good, no doubt about that. The choices for wine are excellent and the prices are very reasonable. One thing to change or improve is the service because when we were here only one man had to do all tables by himself. Serving...More

Dear thanks for reviewing us. I am myself, the owner, who is in charge of the room. For me the most important aseptic thing is that there is nothing missing, that the pulsating heart of the Osteria fuses in line with the room. Thanks again...More

This a small restaurant which serves wonderful food. Great ambience with friendly helpful service. Good wine list. It is amazing how such a small restaurant with it appeared so few staff could provide such brilliant food and service. Booking essential as it's so small.

Dear Langland, here in Italy it is said "in the small barrel there is good wine", this ancient saying is a bit our philosophy of life. Thanks for this wonderful review, we hope to see you again soon. Sincerely

This is a small restaurant and you should book if you want to eat here. This is traditional Italian cuisine, and we found that we could cope with three courses by sharing some dishes. We are there twice and it was all good. The seafood...More
