You can sure lose yourself at L'Osteria! Great wine List, great menu! Veal dishes were excellent. Vigerella was a nice feature. The seating area was perfect sized. Quaint,dressy, and comfortable. Service was superb. Amanda at the bar was accomodating and friendly! Must try this excellent Italian establishment!

Small restaurant and it made it extra cozy for my boyfriend and I! We couldn't decide so we shared our entrees! Perfect portions and if you want real Italian... This is the place! We also both had martinis which were made perfect to our liking. The White bean spread for the bread was also our favorite! Just the right amount... More

The food was very good and the portions were just right. My friend had bolognese which was full of meat. I had grilled chicken breast served in a tasty cream sauce. We shared calamari as our appetizer. We did not have room for dessert. Waiter was very friendly and knowledgeable.

My husband and I took a 94-year-old colleague and his daughter to dinner here and loved it. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. We would love to come back another time.

Quaint little bistro style dining experience. Daily dinner socials are always fabulous and continue to surprise and delight my taste buds. The staff is always friendly and helpful when recommending particular dishes for the picky pallet. Well with the experience

I wanted to let the owners of this restaurant know how underwhelmed we were tonight at this restaurant. The mussels appetizer had a tasty broth, but the mussels were over cooked, and chewy. We couldn't eat them, and we were not charged for them. The halibut special, came out blackened, and dry, with a tapenade type sauce on top. I... More

Whenever I come to the New England area, I'm always looking for that small Italian restaurant that makes fresh food, L'Osteria is that place. You just don't get this type of Italian in Florida where I'm from, it must be something in the Italian DNA of New England. I was sold immediately by the Northern Bean Bruschetta, perfect, not greasy,... More

L'Osteria is a cozy, chic little NYC style bistro with excellent food. The veal chop is great and only available on Friday and Saturday nights and is highly recommended.
