Superb

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... read 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

Good food, nice service and great atmosphere. It's the fourth time I visited them and I'll be back soon.

Had a fabulous meal. Service was superb. The staff could not do enough for us. Although the portions were not very large the taste was very very good. Not a huge choice on the menu but a smaller menu and better quality is preferable. Definite visit again.

A friendly small restaurant with decent food, but if you require side dishes, the price per person soon mounts up and one has to question whether there is better value elsewhere. I had Agnello Grigliato (grilled lamb chops) at £18.90 and then added sautéed potatoes and spinach (£2.50 and £4.00 respectively). With my starter of Calamari Ripieni (stuffed squid) starter...

The fixed price lunch isn't available on a Saturday but that gave us the full menu to choose from. Carpaccio of venison was fabulous, as was the seafood linguini. The pasta was advertised as a starter sized portion (you could have a larger portion if wanted) but perfect for a 2 course lunch. Lots a scallops, prawns, squid and mussels... More

Visited this restaurant last year - 3 times in one week as the food and service was so good. Returned this year and delighted to find that the quality of cooking and service was still the same. We were even recognised and welcomed back which is quite something after a year. The restaurant is small so you do need to... More

On our last night in East Lothian my golfing friend and I had dinner at Osteria, we were so glad we did. It's a small storefront restaurant with an attractive contemporary interior. The service here cannot be faulted. The wait staff is friendly and highly professional, the later of which is often hard to find in a small town. There's... More

An absolute joy from start to finish. Well worth the 90 mile trip. Staff are fantastic. Food is exquisite. Quite simply one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Can't wait to go back. Hope I can get a table after this !!!
