We celebrated our friend's birthday in this small restaurant with a very enjoyable meal. The ham and Parmesan amuse bouche was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the butternut squash risotto with smoked mozzarella 'Primi' others raved about their veal ravioli. Main courses were delicious, and the service was professional throughout. My only negative comment was that I would have liked my... More

My husband and I just had a lovely meal in Osteria, a romantic restaurant in North Berwick. They offered us an Italian ham similar to prosciutto on a slightly toasted crouton to start. It was delicious and beautifully presented. The hubby had Forza Azzuri, an Italian beer he hadn't tasted before. Loved it. I had prosseco. Next, we enjoyed smoked... More

Three of us met in Osteria for a business lunch. I had been meaning to try the lunch menu as it seemed to be good value for money and I had heard great reports about the food. The restaurant itself is smaller than i expected, but that does not make any difference to the ambience or the experience. The lunch... More

We ate here on a Saturday lunchtime and found the whole experience excellent. Staff very attentive, food fabulous and reasonably priced given the quality on offer. The restaurant is small but spotless and with a real Italian feel to it. We will definitely be back and would recommend to all.

Knowing North Berwick well, but never having tried this restaurant we thought we would listen to the reviews from Trip Advisor and give it a go. The menu was quite limited and rather expensive, but the food was tasty enough even though the portions were a bit smallish. The waiters were extremely friendly (a bit obsequious?) but certainly smiley and... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant after reading trip advisor reviews and we certainly weren't disappointed !! Excellent service from polite and helpful staff. The food was absolutely excellent...a little appetiser was brought straight away. We chose the seafood of the day platter which was simply delicious. The creme brulee was to die for. I wouldn't hesitate to visit... More

Went here on the basis of recommendations by friends and the positive tripadvisor reviews. Our expectations were sky high going in and these were surpassed! The service and quality of food and wine were exceptional, every course was delicious along with the Italian wine. The seafood pasta is a must followed by a delicious veal dish. We will certainly be... More

This is a not to miss restaurant in a quiet Scottish town. The menu is changed frequently, the food is a tribute to the chef, lovingly prepared and well presented. The problem is choosing a meal from such an appetising menu. Recently we were fortunately there when the special was lobster likely locally sourced. I shall visit it again this... More
