Must be the most immaculately clean restaurant we have ever been in. The food and service are first class. In Edinburgh for business but happily made the short journey to North Berwick to enjoy Osteria. If you have not been, then go. Well done to Angelo and all his staff.

Surprisingly good Italian food in a formal but friendly restaurant. Open late and accommodates groups of 6 or 8.

This restaurant opens early at 6pm and we had to book 2 days ahead to get a reservation even at this time of the evening. The food and service are first class and the ambience much more peaceful than in the other Italian eateries in town..

A friend and I were walking the John Muir Way and discovered this absolute gem. Outstanding cuisine and service. The best outside of Italy. Very elegant.

Invited to a business lunch and experienced the most magnificent food. Each course was exquisite and the service impeccable. I will return, but only for self (and my companion's) indulgence.
