The waiters/waitresses are authentic. The food is fresh and always wonderful. Ambience is homey mountain feel. Open only on high season from spring through fall. Get their egg battered flounder if on special.

Servers were very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly. Food was very good and the place seemed pretty popular. The atmosphere could use some updating, but if you like that old-time "lodge" feel you won't mind a bit. Beer selection needs more variety though.

Situated conveniently between Lake Toxaway and Cashiers, Osteria is a rather surprising discovery. The menu is fairly traditional for an Italian restaurant in the states, sort of old school. Think Chicago or New York Italian in the sixties. That said, great service, traditional menu with...More
