We booked this restaurant as we had heard it was the best one in the area. Although we did enjoy the meal we did not feel it lived up to the hype. The service although very friendly was very slow, I think we waited about 45 minutes between the starter and main course. The starters were very good but the mains although tasty were extremely small and quite disappointing. Maybe we were unlucky as this restaurant gets great reviews.

I've been here several times and it's always great food and service. Angelo and his staff are friendly.

Decided to have a last evening meal at Osteria before going on holiday having already visited the week before! Menu had changed (usually does every three/four months) but the offer remains excellent (and different) with the service and attention to detail remaining high. Went for a nice Pulgian wine that Angelo recommended and it was lovely. The restaurant was full (with many returning diners) and we only managed to get a table for 20.30. Nice buzzy atmosphere without being too loud. Decided to book for July and September when we return from our holidays just in case they are booked up! Ron & Allan

Osteria raises the bar with regard to Italian Dining in Scotland. This is as much a fine dining experience as an Italian meal out. A great menu. A super wine list. And a team of waiters doing their best to ensure that you have a night out to remember.

A proper Italian restaurant serving the traditional antipasti, followed by i prime and i secondi (apologies for spelling). If you want pizza there are other places to choose from.

The food and service was excellent, it's small so best to book. They also haven't made the mistake of cramming too many tables in.

If we return to North Berwick, Osteria will be on the must do list.
