Had coffee and chilled here for a while in the garden courtyard. Good quality and well worth a visit.

“Perfect Holiday restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

if you are staying between Cabaritta and KIngscliff, this place and its sister the Spice Den are perfect Family Holiday venues. Both offer super food and wine that is very high quality. You can ride or walk to both if staying between Cabaritta and Salt or at the very least drive, leave your car, have a drink and grab a taxi home. THese are not high class Sydney Dining experiences nor do they suffer from not being on the water. At night you cannot see anything off the coastline. It is pitch black! Go. THey are great . We went twice to both over the last 2 weeks. wE also went to all the Restaurants at Salt which are similarly good but a little too Holiday family filled.

“Osteria Casuarina NSW 2487 (YUMMO!)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

In a smaller regional setting the Osteria is a brilliant asset and such a great place to hang, chill, meet friends, enjoy the nearby beach, or get great food after gym (next door).
Having brought up 6 kids I see the delight of other parents who can let the kids play in the play gym or garden, and relax - enjoying their visit.
The food is first class, the wine list arguably the best in the region, including the nearby Gold Coast.
Service is gob smackingly friendly, coffee - tasty and amazing. Consistent too.
There is a great range of gormet deli foods, and loads of fresh made salads, fritatas, cakes to help out if you're catering at home.

“Kids say best lasagne ever.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

First time we ate there over September school holidays 2013. Two of us had lasagne and the others had Sirloin and I had soup of the day (Chicken and potato) with a glass of red wine (Soup and wine for $10). Meals were wholesome and our Children gave 5/5 to the lasagne. Will stop by again when we are down that way friendly atmosphere and no pressure atmosphere.

“Perfect in everyway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Hubby & I had our reception at Osteria and it was everything we imagined & more. From the first meal we had at osteria we new this was the place we wanted to be when celebrating the most important day of our lives & share it with our friends & family. If your looking for somewhere to have a function we cant say enough about this place. The owner of osteria sat down with us and asked what we where looking for & with some amazing ideas bouncing back & forward we came up with the most incredible night. Nothing was to much to ask & they where always there throughout the whole organisation of the big day. Osteria really makes it happen with no stress or drama! The food is the best we have had anywhere & we have just come back from France & Italy..... Yes that's right! After our wedding all we heard repeated from our guests was how incredible the food was. How unreal the service was. And that it really was the best wedding they have ever been too! Osteria is so passionate about there food and creating a sensational vibe! Oh yeah the drinks........... delicious! Thank you so very much from Amanda & Matt xox
