“Surprisingly Good Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

The food was far better than what we expected. Ambiance lacking. Great for families. Not so great for couples. Restaurant quality food in a beer garden setting. Good service.

“Unexpected location -- but worth a trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

I did not expect to find such a nice cafe here -- surrounded by apartments and nowhere near anything else, but the food was excellent (and quite gourmet - I had the double baked goats cheese soufflé)), the service was pleasant (especially Leanne), and it was a great place to sit and get some work done.

“Excellent food & even better service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

I had lunch here with some friends on the weekend and I have to say we were all very impressed. The food was wonderful and our waitress Leanne was so helpful, knowledgeable and bubbly. We're all definitely planning on come back soon!

“Great coffee, great wine, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

I'm a frequent visitor to Osteria. Great atmosphere, exceptionally high quality food, wine and coffee. A great, chilled spot for singles, friends, couples and families! Leanne and the crew are always very obliging and efficient!
