This particular restaurant is my favourite of the Osteria chain of restaurants, not only because the food is exceptional in taste but the chef cum manager warmly welcomes clients to their tables and serves almost homemade food like the old days. You leave this eatery completely Full and with a smile on your face. Everything including service is impeccable.

The Restaurant is fairly good when you enter in it for the first time. When you will sit they will serve you this pizza-like bread with garlic and tomatoes. It is nice. Then comes the menu... When you see the prices and you may say... "OK it's expensive but maybe the quality is of the same level" The quality is... More

When we arrived the table had not been set up from previous customers I guess. It was a late lunch so we were there at 2pm. Restaurant wasn't that full but the service was slow. Food took long to be served and needless to say the food was sooooo bad but time couldn't allow for us to send it back... More

You get a free starter, that was very tasty and big! Good start....But from here it was all downhill.... I started with a "Chef's special" witch was a plate of Italian cuts of salami, ham and cheeses. (2242Kes/22,02$/20,53€) What can I say about this? Overpriced for a few pieces of salami, ham and some cheese. The quality was not what... More

I've been to Osteria VM a few times and love the service and good food. It definitely has a different feel from the rest of the mall. Their selection of wines is also pretty decent. During our last visit for dinner there was a band playing at the corner. Despite the limited space at the restaurant the band seemed to... More

I've been here few times, mainly for dinner, and it's always good. Service is impeccable, great ambience and excellent food. Make sure to save room for dessert. Highly recommended.

I usually dine in; but found out that they have free delivery service! Live music in Friday, so you'll need to book a table. Great food, good price here.

I am a big fan of Italian food so I try to find good Italian restaurants wherever I go but that isn't the easiest of things to find. Osteria, like so many others, is especially notable for its nice ambiance and service. I had a decently tasting Penne Pesto and my friend had Ravioli that he seemed to enjoy as... More

I took some friends for a quick lunch. It was terrible. The place is dirty-- the linen, cutlery, crockery and waiters. Very surprised that such a restaurant can be located in such a nice mall. I think it was once a nice place judging by the wooden ceiling, etc but it has lost it. Before hoing there i went to... More
