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.

“Hidden Pearl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

My wife and I have been dining at Osteria since it opened up a few months ago, and this restaurant is simply amazing, starting from the food quality, to the attentive yet not intrusive service and ending with the nice and qualitative variety of the wine list which is almost 100 % comprised of italian wines. The hand made pasta and the fresh fish usually served on friday and saturday are our absolute favorite, simply prepared but flowing with flavor and taste. Tip: if you would like the fresh fish call ahead because it runs out pretty quick especially on friday or saturday night. The Caprese salad and their carrot or zuchini soups are excellent as well. Desserts could use some more variety but if you like panacotta they have a good one. Simply put a great addition to the rather limited choices of great restaurants that Greensboro has. Since I cannot describe all the great dishes this restaurant offers I have included a link from their last review by John Batchelor who as the local foodies know is the source for advise on where to eat in Greensboro http://www.news-record.com/go_triad/article_f6040856-ce1c-11e2-858e-0019bb30f31a.html

“Not impressed.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

I was expecting outstanding food based on the many highly rated reviews. However, we were just disappointed. The crepe appetizer was dry and tasteless with a horrid tomato sauce. The lasagna tasted like chef Boyardee straight from the can. The pasta was okay and edible but nothing to brag about. The shrimp ordered extra with the pasta were cut in half ,to save money perhaps, and so tiny and overcooked they were inedible. We passed on dessert. I would not recommend.

“Over rated. Support the truly better local resturants. Not what it seems.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

My wife and i stopped in for dinner on a friday night. Dinning room was loud but clean. The pasta they claim to be "hand rolled" is not. It was fresh but a pasta maker was used. And on top of that is was over cooked and bland. The ingerdents are of the most basic quality with flavor being pushed aside for cost. Do yourself a favor and support the many local and chef owned resturants in greensboro. This place is a mockery of the standards they claim to have.

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

This is a special place, with good wine, good service, and excellent food.
The appetizers by themselves would make a satisfying lunch. The vegetable antipasto with lentils was amazing. The only difficulty was deciding what to order, and restraining ourselves from gazing with too much greed and interest at everyone else's food. We arrived at 6PM on a Tuesday evening and several tables were already reserved. When we left at 7:45, the tables were all full.
