My girlfriend and I took my son and his girlfriend to Osteria last night, at his request, because he'd heard it was terrific. We arrived at 5 sharp with reservations, as my son and his girlfriend had 7 p.m. theatre tickets two blocks away. Valet parking was $12 (and necessary, given the neighborhood). We were nearly the first people there,... More

One of Marc Vetri's little gems in the City of Brotherly Love. Menu is small but everything is so good it's better not to have too many choices. Been here after Barnes and museum hopping. Always glad to return. Salads are sharable and the pizza choices are unbeatable. It's small so try to come a little before or later than... More

Great location. Neat design and the food was awesome. Waitstaff was both knowledgeable and very helpful. The food was better than I could imagine. Signature dishes lived up to everything I had heard. Pasta was the best. Very creative but not pretentious. Can't wait to visit again

Osseria serves innovative and delicious food in an attractive, albeit noisy, space. Dishes such as the roasted baby artichokes and the ravioli with walnut pesto were outstanding. The menu also offers lots of options including interesting antipasti and great pizza.

For excellent food, warm atmosphere, and superb customer service, Osteria is the place to go! The roasted vegetables were wonderful, and the two past dishes I sampled were both light and totally delicious. The restaurant was busy, but with a noise level so well managed that we could also enjoy conversation. Our service was attentive, but not intrusive. The very... More

We were very happy and impressed with this restaurant on our recent trip to Philly. Found it through Yelp, and got a reservation for the same evening. Atmosphere was great, good service, and food was really good! I had the maccheroni with smoked guanciale, brussels and lemon pan gratatto and it was amazing!! My husband had a daily special that...

I was invited to join a group dining at Osteria following an ABA function. 25 of us were seated in a spacious private room and were treated to a delicious menu featuring salads, pizzas, pasta dishes, beef and sea bass and an assortment of desserts. Service was attentive and pleasant throughout. While I cannot comment on the overall menu or... More

We've been here about five times and each time we are thrilled with our meal. The pasta dishes are alway fantastic. Most recently my wife got the postage stamp ravioli in an oniony butter sauce and I got a fantastic spaghetti in a sausage ragu. Almost every time we go I start with the Porchetta tonnata which is to die... More

Went here last week with my son after reading great reviews on tripadvisor. The restaurant is quite nice looking. Service was fine. Started our meal with the duck liver pate served with beignets, which we thought was wonderful. My son had the mini raviolis with mushroom and sage sauce, which was good but not great. I ordered the Polpo pizza... More
