Real italian food!

Nice service, amazing spaghetti a la vongole. And yummy bread and salad. Too bad it's so close to the main road.

We tried to visit this restaurant last night but found it closed. We then headed off to Brasserie , where we were told that the owner of L Osteria has now purchased Brasserie and as such has " temporarily " closed L Osteria in order to focus on Brasserie. Pity as This restaurant served really authentic yummy italian fare- however... More

I did not have to wait to be seated, seconds after the waitress pull my chair out for me I was handed a basket of fresh bread with an olive and oil paste and provided me with a clean ashtray. My drink came immediately after ordering. While waiting for my dinner I looked around the atmosphere (I am seated outside).... More

Visited this restaurant twice as we were staying at the Villa Molek to which the L’Osteria is attached. Please do not associate this review with the Villa Molek, which is excellent. On the up side this restaurant does have a charcoal pizza oven and the pizzas are very good, if the selection is very limited and unimaginative. Service is awful.... More

My husband and I went here for a Valentine's Day meal as we were on holiday here for our honeymoon. We had a fantastic meal - the lasagne is one of the best I have ever tasted. They gave us a free cocktail on arrival and a flower for me as it was a special day. The only slight niggles... More

Visit the restaurant tonight. Took 50 minutes from 1"st course ended, till we got our 2"course. The rest had a lot of potencial, but failed again and again. Verry dissappointed. Especially after reading the reports at trip ad.

I ordered the salmon steak and my husband the beef. We both were impressed with generous servings and food was very tasteful and fresh. Service was poor though. Had to ask 3 different staff for a lemon wedge. No smiles, just miserable people.

The weather was fine so we could opt for an outside table. At l'Osteria an outside table has our preference because the staff of l'Osteria loves loud music. As I pointed out in my previous review, when you sit inside you need ear plugs. But enough of the nagging. I must say that the owner and chef, Lorenzo, has created... More

The last time we were there the owner Lorenzo was away. But our last trip to the restaurant he was there twice and even cooked for us! The seabass was superb but my personal favourite is seafood spaghetti. Pizza too was delicious. Service was always top at Losteria. The restaurant itself is super clean, with colourful prints adorned the walls.... More
