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 !!!

We have eaten here many times and been delighted every time. The service is really excellent, friendly and helpful but discreet. The food is delicious and truly Italian . A very attractive restaurant to eat in too as it is quite small and intimate but never feels crowded. I recommend it unreservedly.

I visited Osteria last week with my wife while on holiday in North Berwick. Faultless food, exceptional service and a truly wonderful evening. Outstanding!

My husband and I ate here on Monday 20th April. In particular the veal ravioli, prawn thermidor, mixed seafood and chocolate soufflé were amazing. Fab experience and great service. Would definitely recommend.

We ate here on Wednesday, early evening to take advantage of the fixed price menu Monday to Thursday £21.95 for three wonderful courses. It is such a treat to eat in the Osteria again. Absolutely perfect service from the two waiters. The food of course was excellant. Anamouse de bouche of a crouton with aged parmesan, cured meat and olive... More

We had the set lunch menu here on Tuesday 14th April and were so impressed with the quality of food and excellent service provided. We had prawn risotto, pork escalopes stuffed with cheese and spinach and Cointreau cheesecake. The lunch menu at £19.50 (including coffee) is great value and the portions are a good size too. Highly recommend Osteria and... More

We had a cracking dinner at Osteria tonight. The service is fantastic, they even remembered my wife was a veggie from our last visit four months ago! The food is delicious and at a fair price. Can't wait to go back.....
