Dining options: Dinner, Lunch
Description: Osteria proudly extends the world famous flavors of the Emilia-Romagna (Bologna) region to Greensboro and offers tastes of the renown Italian cuisine staples of prosciutto, mortadella, parmigiano and balsamic to area diners. Located at Westover Gallery Shops, our 65 seat restaurant serves up a taste of Italy at lunch and dinner. Our extensive selection of handmade pastas includes traditional items as ravioli, strozzapreti, taglioni, gnocchi and fettucini. Our sauces are made fresh daily and much like the namesake osteria in Italy, focus predominantly on local vegetables and ingredients. Pastas are complemented with our other menu options: salads, fresh grilled choices and varying daily specials. The wine lists features more than 70 affordable selections, focusing primarily on the north central regions of Italy: Emilia-Romagna, Umbria, Tuscany, and Piemonte. The wine list also includes sparkling wines, such as prosecco and lambrusco for that special occasion celebration. We extend a warm invitation to be our guest at Osteria, where you will be treated to a cordial welcome and an authentic taste of Italy. Our menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the local ingredients. Our wine list also changes accordingly.

“Good, not exceptional.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

The service in this restaurant was very good! It is small so I would suggest a reservation.
The menu is very limited however. The appetizer meatballs were good but for the price, the portion is very small. The bread was served warm and very good also. I would have liked some butter with it or oil/herbs.
The lasagna was okay. It looked like a large portion but actually it was just sauce and cheese with only a small square in the middle of the dish.
In reality, I think Carrabba's is better!!

“REAL HOMEMADE PASTA!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had a fabulous meal here! We took our office ( all of us foodies) out for a small celebration and we were all thrilled with the food! We each had an app - the meatball appetizer which was perfect - tender meatballs and an awesome sauce, beef carpaccio with the nicest slices of parm perfectly prepared,they had a crepe that was vegetarian - very unique and creamy. The entree pasta dishes were all spot on - we had one meat eater who had some amazing fall off the bone short ribs. Deserts were all great, although we were stuffed by the time they arrived - even the bread they served from the moment you sat down was yummy, crusty and perfectly soft inside...we will be back!! There is so much more to try !! BTW - Great Italian wines at very reasonable prices. A VERY nice addition to Greensboro - can't wait to go back!
