The quality of the food here was immeasurably better than the food on offer at the hotel we stayed at. ( It also cost considerably less!) The service was friendly and quietly professional. The welcoming glass of fizz and the chocolate truffle at the end were delightful touches.

Unprepossessing from the street but inside you get the comlimentary glass of cava followed by attentive service, a good menu and nice, simple, but well prepared and presented food. Straightforward, simple, good food and good value. Euros 50 for 2 including starters, maincourse and a bottle of the house white. Well done.

L'Osteria is still our favourite restaurant in Funchal. The service is friendly and attentive. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. I especially enjoyed the sole followed by crepe suzette - delicious. The complimentary extras, like the glass of sparkling wine to begin the meal,
were very much appreciated. Good value for money. Definitely worth a visit.

We have visited L'Osteria a number of times over the last few years and went twice on our recent Madeira holiday. We had the same friendly welcome on both occasions, a glass of complimentary fizz and 'nice to see you again' even though it was a year since our previous visit. The interior is tasteful and intimate with relaxed but attentive service. We had the chef's selection menu on the first visit (17euro for 2 courses, 4 or 5 choices for each) and had a la carte on the second. Both times the food was excellent as was the house wine. The complimentary treats kept coming, first a small glass of homemade fruit liqueur after the main course (the rum,port and forest fruits one was delicious) and then truffles at the end of the meal. My partner declined hers as they were rolled in coconut which she dislikes, a few moments later the waiter brought her some plain ones instead. A nice touch. We've tried a number of different restaurants in Funchal and think this is one of the best. If you're staying in the Lido area give it a try.
