Excellent lunch

Good food and great service in a quiet unassuming restaurant. Menu had a great choice and we'll definitely be back.

This restaurant was highly recommended and lived up to its reputation. The mussels were excellent; unlike so many UK restaurants, they were just the right size and the "soup" as a delicate flavour. The lemon sole, off the bone, was also a good size and the staff suggested we didn't need all the vegetables we were about to order; they... More

We had a wonderful dinner at osteria. It was recommended by a local friend, who joined a family dinner after playing golf. Everything taster delicious and fresh from the antipasti, to the pastas and finally the mains, including delicious Dover sole. The service was fantastic. We brought 4 bottles of special wine and they were very gracious in serving our... More

Booked Osteria for lunch for my wife and I after reading tripadvisor reviews and it did not disappoint. Easy, pleasant advance booking and the welcome on arrival very welcoming from the waiter and their attention to us did not falter throughout the meal. The food was excellent, I had a pasta starter which was silver and my wife had risotto... More

Italian restaurants are my favorites. I have been to many all over the US and Europe. Osteria outdoes them all. The Salumi/prosciutto/mozzarella appetizer rivaled one I had at the Artemide Hotel in Rome some years ago - which until now had been my yardstick. The Dover Sole was mouthwateringly good, served and fileted at the table. The veal was the... More

Heard lots of great reviews so we went for a birthday lunch for my wife. From the minute we entered nothing was to much trouble, service was excellent and the three course lunch was tremendous. We had the house white which we were told was Sicilian I would recommend this wine any day. Thank you for a lovely lunch and... More

After a long day trudging round Edinburgh we needed cheering up! We rang Osteria to be told they were fully booked but if we came straight away they'd fit us in. What a lovely place. The staff were brilliant - just 'there' enough, not intrusive but attentive. We weren't rushed at all even though they had squeezed us in. The... More

This is a family restaurant and therefore attention to detail is everything from front of house to the kitchen. A small restaurant so booking is essential wether for lunch or dinner, it is closed on Sundays. The menu changes dependant on seasonal availability, I dined here many times and never been disappointed. Italian food, Pasta's and Veal always good also... More
