Great menu, excellent service and an interesting wine list. Probably our tenth visit in recent years and quality and attention to service undiminished. Shame they don't have more covers, as it's not always easy to get in....

We're in North Berwick to see family fairly regularly and make a point of eating here if we can. It's very good indeed, and the service is great too. Good menu choice with excellent fish specials and very good pasta (one would hope so too,...More

I finished my stay in North Berwick by tasting the delicious food of this authentic Italian restaurant. I started by the mushroom soup followed by the very tasty lamb accompanied by some vegs. To finish, the crème brulée (coffee flavor) was worth it too. This...More

Why add a perfect review to an already crowded list of perfect reviews? Because Osteria deserves the time it takes to say “Congratulations”. The lamb is by far the best I have ever eaten. Service wonderful. Pasta perfect.

My first visit to Osteria with friends and I loved it. It's a small restaurant but doesn't feel cramped even when full. Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff, proper white tablecloths and napkins...I'll definitely be back.

If you like fish, like amazing service and can get a table the Osteria is well worth a visit. Impeccable white table clothes, extensive wine list and brilliant sea food options always cooked exquisitely. I had their classic “Trio of fish” with new potatoes last...More

We were on a golfing trip, drove into town late afternoon, asked a lady in the street where to go for dinner, and without hesitation she said: Osteria. I looked it up on Tripadvisor: she was right! Over drinks in a local; pub I made...More

Osteria do not need another glowing review, but that is what this is. The food, the service & the wine list are spot on. Osteria is in the Italian tradition of family run restaurants where each has a role to play in a shared enterprise....More
