Fantastic local Italian restaurant!! Excellent menu options for appetizer, salads, entree, and dessert! Great wine list and drinks. A true local Italian experience. For dessert you must try the Fruito D`Bosco cake, one of a kind experience! So many true Italia dishes and excellent service. Small place so call for a reservation on a busy night! You won't regret it!

This restaurant use to be better years ago however it is still very good. Service is always very good as is the food taste and quality. Nice wine list and good cocktails. It can get a little pricey. The place is small and it can get a little loud. All in all a very good restaurant. I like it better... More

L'Osteria is one of those warm, welcoming restaurants with friendly help and delicious Northern Italian food. Make sure you make a reservation as it is not large. Every time we have been there it is consistently good.

we have eaten here a few times and the meals are always good, the problem is the place is small and there is no privacy and it can get really noisy. As far as cost the prices are high for this location, service is good.

We love the neighborhood feel of L'osteria. It is a frequent Friday night favorite. Jack is always welcoming, recommends a great wine for dinner. We do have our favorites but, the specials never disappoint.

Was very good. We had a nice table for 2. It wasn't too noisy even though it was filled. Make a reservation if your going on a weekend and particular time. The waiter was very good with our order and very attentive.

My favorite place for dinner. It is small and cozy but food is by far best around. Always fresh. The best stuffed squash flowers when in season. Always a teat to eat outside in warm weather also.

Great service, food and atmosphere. My new favorite restaurant! A very pleasant experience. The waiter remembered us from a prior visit and greeted us with "Welcome back".

I love L'osteria. The food is always amazing and the staff is always friendly. I recommend it to anyone and it is one of my favorite places to go to for Italian. Their canolli's are the best!
