“Overpriced with poor service even the bar made strange errors.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Just about everything was subpar but in the interest of saving time, I will sum my review up with just the cocktail experience:
Order: 1 Margarita, 1 Stoli with club soda.
Received: 1 Gin & Rose's sweetened lime juice straight up (martini glass,no ice ),
1 questionnable vodka & tonic.

“Very Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Our favorite Italian Restaurant . We always look forward to eating here. Small restaurant with a large menu. My wife and I have been here six times in the last year, twice with other couples, and everyone was pleased with the food and service each visit.

If I have any complaint it would be with some patrons who just can't seem to lower their voices in such an intimate spot and think that every one in the restaurant will find what they have to say interesting.

“Great atmosphere. Small but charming. Waaaaaaay too expensive!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

I like the small restaurant vibe la osteria puts out. That is until you get the bill. I think this place is a little pricey for what you get. You'd be better off heading to federal hill for the night. Food was very good. Pasta fagioli was fantastic. Restaurant.com usually has a deal to this place which helps but its still expensive. On weekend s you will be waiting dp make sure you make reservations.

“Hidden gem in Cranston!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2012

This is one of our favorite places. We travel to Italy once or twice a year, and find the choices at L'Osteria to be authentic.
The bruschetta is incredible! A word of caution on the calamari: it's not battered and fried as most New Englanders are accustomed to; it's sauteed. Still good, just different than what you may expect. Any entree we've had has been wonderful.
Parking can sometimes be a problem, especially in the summer, but we've never had to walk more than a block.
