We ate here on Friday night while staying down the coast. Food was very good - thought the pastas could have done with a bit more sauce but the flavours were very good. The drinks were delicious also! Would definitely return!

A good friend told me that my favourite waitress, Laura, had moved to Osteria and that it was a great feed! This was a couple weeks after another friend had given it a really good wrap! Both recommendations were very well deserved! Very welcoming and great service in a lovely setting ;) The bruschetta was delightful, just right. I had... More

Osteria has been our local for a few years now, but of the past two months, what can I say. Three mains to choose from or pizzas. No pasta. Not sure about the Italian restaurant claim. And Saturday night half empty is very unusual. And 1hr20 for our pizzas. Damn shame. I think they are going towards the back room... More

I had a great meal here with two girlfriends-food was amazing & the service was great. Despite the fact we had an entertainment discount voucher and we stayed quite late on a Wed night we still received top service. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend Osteria. The spatchcock I had is really worth trying & my friends &... More

Osteria is our most local cafe so we grab coffees, breakfast or lunch here regularly. Most of the time we are really happy with the service and the quality of the food. BUT... I must say at least every 3-4 visit we get a bad coffee (too hot - burnt coffee taste) and depending on where you sit you can... More

We were there on a night they also had a wedding. We waited over 90 mins for our meals and we ended up going to the bar for drinks as the staff were just too busy. When the food arrived it was lovely however we won't be back on a weekend when a wedding is taking place.

We booked the Thursday set menu and when we asked what it was we were told it was a surprise. Mmm.... When we sat down at the table and asked what we were having again we were told its a surprise. They were correct. For the set menu we were given a sharing plate to start. Pickled vegetables, olives,fetta,bread. Not... More

It has a great vibe - with nice big garden beds, great lighting and good design. My hubby and I love a place that cares about food and our natural environment, so we were excited to dine. The staff were lovely and attentive and our food arrived promptly- in nice portions. The beers on tap were great and the food... More

We had our wedding at Osteria on Friday 30th September this year and every single aspect of it was amazing, the coordinators Isabel and Tessa were an absolute pleasure to deal with and made everything run so smoothly. The venue is already so amazing that you don't need to add much to it. The garden is the most wonderful place... More

We have visited Osteria many times over the last few years and have always been pleased, nothing flash but good well prepared food with pretty good service. However in September we dined here and were extremely disappointed the service was average and impersonal almost on the verge of being unfriendly and unhelpful. The food though was extremely disappointing. We opted... More
