Good food bad service

The restaurant may be the best Italian in town with very tasty flavors and nice pizza. However the stuff have attitude and are rude. Also in the second room there is a big door they are coming in and some just left open and was really annoying as we were freezing!

Highly overrated place. Yes; the pizza is good and definitely above the average pizza you get in the area. But the service is a far cry from Italian hospitality. Stressful, chaotic service in a cramped restaurant where staff doesn't help to make guests feel comfortable or welcome. Will go again, but only to take away a pizza.

Enjoyed a very nice evening at l'Osteria. Salad was perfect for sharing before digging into one very large thin crust pizza. The pizza can be cut in half, so each of you can have your favourite. Wine and beer are quite inexpensive. We sat in the covered patio to the side of the restaurant, which is a bit quieter, but... More

Good pizza is hard to come by and this is why when we are not traveling across Italy we go to L'Osteria. Reservations are suggested as this place is always packed. I have not met a pizza here I did not like but if you are not a big eater I would suggest you share a pizza because these pies... More

This pizzas here are tremendous! So delicious & so incredibly huge that we keep coming back. The cost of a pizza is more than fair between €7-€11. The service has always been very good and the waitresses/waiters seem genuinely happy to be serving and are always helpful. We can only comment on the pizzas - but there's no (for us)... More

A fine Italian restaurant with first-rate ingredients used to make really good food. It was packed out when we went, we had no booking, but they squeezed us in. The service was good, faultless even, and the soup exceptionally good. Then, at my colleague's suggestion we had the pizza. There is only one size -enormous - but it is made... More

I love it so much that we had our wedding lunch there. Sizes are huge, but in a nice way, lots of the stuff I like (ingredients) and some bread on it on a huge size for a competitive price, it is so good that I would invest in their future and open a franchise.

The food served was of good quality and the pricing was reasonable. Especially the pizza and the risotto were great, the pasta we took was ok but nothing special

This is a tiny "hole in the wall" kind of spot, but the food is authentic and delicious! We dined with an Italian who has very high standards of Italian cooking, and he approves! The margarita pizza, bruschetta, and pasta were delicious! Great comfort food for first night in the city and a long day. Amazing value. Gets busy quickly,... More

The place is kind of small and tight. That means: making a reservation might be recommended and getting from A to B might get challenging... Furthermore, it's not very easy to reach unless you have a car or get on a cab. The pizzas are big (-big!-): thin crust, tasty tomato sauce and "very Italian" - meaning: they are not... More
