We had our evening meal here. Not a very wide choice of food but traditional dishes you would expect on the menu. Food was excellent, staff were attentive without being over fussy good value we were pleasantly surprised at the bill.

We found this place in "where chefs eat". It's an honest restaurant with good food and very friendly staff! My husband asked for some sauce with his steak, so they prepared some and even said to ask for more if needed :) Great!

The restaurant was packed on the day we went so I understand why the service was poor (maybe it's better when not so crowded). Waiter took 30 minutes to visit the table and then served our food person-by-person with 10 minute gaps between table visits. They also overcharged us but took the additional charges from our bill after we brought... More

My husband, toddler and I got lost trying to find another restaurant, and were so exhausted from walking up and down hills with our stroller, and we decided to try the next restaurant we saw, and we found L'Osteria, and I'm SO happy we did. My husband had the steak (not the rib eye, the other), and it was so... More

This retaurant was reccomended by a friend for having authentic Tuscan cuisine without the extortional pricing of many tourism town establishements. We really enjoyed our meal here and heartily reccomend it. Booking is advisable.

This restaurant is in the old town , finding somewhere to park is your biggest issue . Steep climb up is worth it for the great architecture . Need to book this place as small and busy. English menu was provided without request - local dishes , don't expect English style Italian food . Chose the wild boar ragu with... More

A small place with a charming atmosphere was just what we were looking for after a long drive from Veneto. Our landlady recommended this place to us and it was perfect. The soups and pasta primi were great, and waiter and cook were a delight.

Since L'Osteria Restaurant was recommended, my husband and two friends decided to have lunch there. The food was good but the way I was treated gave me a stomach ache. Don't know if the waiter was the owner or manager. After my husband ordered and liked the soup of the day, a tomato soup, our friends also ordered it while... More

The place is nice, traditional, with good food and fair prices. However the service is quite poor and the waiter rude. We reached at 9.45 pm and we were pressured to place our order in 10 minutes since the kitchen was about to close. At 11 we were literarly kicked out when we had not even finished our drinks, the...
