I ate there on a recent visit to Woodstock. Dierdre made a very good wine recommendation. They buy from small vineyards in Italy, so they do have interesting choices. The mozzarella which we had for an appetizer and which they get from a local dairy was also quite good. However, the pizzas were really only average. I wish I had... More

This is a small, intimate, and gorgeous restaurant. Seasonal flowers abound. Candlelight sparkles (you may need a flashlight to read the menu). There's something for everyone: light as air Tuscan pizza with arugula, home-cured charcuterie, the best of Vermont cheeses, slow-cooked meat and lightly grilled fish. Your table is yours for the night. You'll want to linger, as Deirdre Heekin,... More

The Osteria serves fine Italian food prepared by a chef/owner who learned his trade cooking in Italy. The chef's wife runs the dining room a'la European family restaurants and is a published author on wines. Excellent wine list.

We have actually never eaten here, nor do we intend to. They are not interested in our business. I felt their system unusual,as their website actually says that they are busy and might not respond to a reservation request, so if the customer has not heard from them in a week, email them again, which is their preferred way to...

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this lovely unusual restaurant. The food, wine and service was excellent but overly expensive for what we had.

The food is wonderful - tried to make a reservation . I know they have limited hours. No response to many phone calls. I heard they are giving up the restaurant to pursue other interests. To bad - I thought they were OK people. How rude !

Everything about this restaurant is bad. The twigs on the table pose an ocular hazard, the service is slow, the food is what you make at home, the food is expensive, and the have a mandatory 18% gratuity. We would never go there again.

at the risk of sounding like a food snob, I have been to Tuscany several times and have had a chance to sample very authentic excellent quality food there. The food from Osteria Pane e Salute is just so excellent and reminiscent of Tuscany. I also love the farm to table emphasis and the very interesting and delicious wines made... More

We arrived for our 7:00PM reservation about 18-20 minutes early. The hostess, who turned out to also be our waitress and the owner, looks at us and says: " Oh, you're early, and because of that it will take longer to prepare your dinner." WHAT? Anyway, we said that we would sit and have some wine while waiting. She brought... More
