We booked an early reservation for dinner and were pleased to enter a bright busy twinkling dining room. We weren't so pleased to be led around the back the restaurant to the opposite ambiance - a depressing, tomb-like second dining room. Quiet and spare, the...More

I have been her 5 times in last 3 years, including last evening. Very disappointing. The restaurant is not what it used to be. First of all, it used to have a classier crowd, better dressed and respectful. It has deteriorated into jeans, sweatshirts and...More

We were a group of 5 on a week night. The food was quality but not quite up to the billing or the bill. Recommended with reservations. There are other Italian restaurants at higher quality and lower price

Except for the antipasto (octopus), bread baked on the premises nd a creamy banana gelato, the other dishes were somewhat disappointed. The fettuicini carbonara were not cooked enough (I don't mean al dente), but the sauce was rich and tasty. The pizza margherita was burned...More

During a business trip to Philly, my friend and I jumped away from a hectic convention schedule to dine at a "good Italian" restaurant. We chose Osteria due to several recommendations from colleagues. We were SO glad that we took the time! Even though it...More

Better call the restaurant with your question. I've only been there at night. Sorry I couldn't help!

I'd probably call to make sure -- but when I went it seemed relatively casual and no one made a fuss about people wearing jeans or what have you -- not " dressy"

"Convivial and inviting, Osteria's heart is its open main kitchen from which its award-winning menu of antipasti, homemade pastas, house-cured salumi, authentic Neapolitan and Roman-style pizzas, wood-grilled meats, seafood and decadent desserts are crafted. Drawing its inspiration from traditional osterias found in Northern Italy, Osteria is the realization of a dream Vetri Family partners Jeff Benjamin and Chefs Marc Vetri and Jeff Michaud had while standing amongst the grapes of the Ca'Marcanda vineyards in Tuscany. Since opening in 2007, Osteria has become one of the country's most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants, receiving a 3-out-of-4 bell review from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and earning Chef Michaud the 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic" for his work helming the kitchen."
