The most polite staff serving real deal Italian in a wonderful setting. Beautiful room, beautiful food. One of the best filets we've ever had anywhere - melt in your mouth good.??the prawns were out of sight. Desert was homemade and amazing. Get the sampler. Head chef is from Florence and available to chat.

“Service does not reflect the price..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Nice atmosphere in an up and coming chic area of Da Zhi, Taipei. Walking in the hostess was very friendly but lacked just that tad of professionalism. A restaurant trying to achieve four star rating, they lacked in staff experience. The linens were old and ragged, our waiter albeit very nice and friendly seemed very nervous and inattentive. We had two bottles of house reds which came to over NTD4000. When we finished the first bottle our server only removed one my friend's glass but never offered to check if we would like another bottle. Food was very average to below... I was actually quite disappointed in their risotto. I had the risotto funghi and my friend had the ox tail. Mine was over cooked, under flavored, her dish was under cooked, no flavor. It actually looked more like creamy polenta yet tasted like under cooked rice. And yes I do know what risotto should taste like. The only dish truly great was the Caprese salad. The fresh buffalo mozzarella was delicious with a modern addition of avocado slices. The house reds were very nice as well but maybe slightly over priced for house. To sum things up the service and food was not worth the price paid. Ambience was nice but is always only the cherry on top for restaurants, the food should always be the main focal point. Try Danny and Company one or two streets across.

“Best Western Food we had in Taipei”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2013

The food at Osteria was top class. It is more expensive than the normal restaurant but the food is of very high quality. Some of the staff were a bit weak in English but they were very professional and others spoke good English

“Good Food, Bad Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

My wife and I invited another couple to join us at Osteria for dinner - our first time there. The food was outstanding and the wine selection substantial, with some very nice choices. Pricing was not cheap, but OK relative to the fare. Based on those two alone, we would go back. But... the service was terrible. The wait staff was exceptionally slow and uninformed - didn't understand their own menu... and overall, they interfered with us enjoying our meal. Based on the poor service we won't be back. Good food, good drink, horrible service.
