“Glad to see Osteria in a more convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

I like the old Osteria, but its not convenient to get to for those who live near Runda etc. thus was glad to see it appear in Gigiri. I admit that the older one in Hurlingham has greater ambiance and outdoor setting, but food is still great at Gigiri location.

“Downhill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

While friendly and in a useful location the way the food is put together has fallen off over the last two years. The ham on the pizza's just doesn't rate compared to what I like from Italy.

“Surprisingly attractive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

The restaurant is inside a shopping mall so for me was initially a turn off. However it is good to put aside conceived notions and so we had lunch there. It wasn't an exceptional experience but it was very pleasant and enjoyable. And of course you could still do your shopping, assuming you have energy left, after you meal.

“LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2012

My husband and I love to visit Osteria Gigiri. Their pizzas are so good, as are the pizzas. The service is attentive, and we love the complimentary flatbread served while you wait. They also have an extensive bar and wine selection, and charming atmosphere for being in Village Market.
