We have never had anything but excellent food and superb service at Osteria del Monte. We have a place at Lake Toxaway and try to dine here each time we come up the mountain from the Clemson area. During the off season, we go into mourning and cook "in," just waiting for our favorite restaurant to re-open. For one very special occasion, we had ten of us--all family--dining. We made it to the early bird special, and everyone ordered something different. No one was disappointed. Rave reviews! Even our little grandsons were treated royally with a special pasta dish and conversation from one of the owners, who obviously loves and understands kids. It is a special place, and everyone we have taken there with us has loved it. We feel the prices are quite reasonable for such an excellent dining experience.
