A word from L'Osteria
L'Osteria offers traditional Italian cuisine with a touch of history, wine and charm.

Preserving tradition, Osteria is small and cozy with no fixed menu. The dishes and ingredients change daily and often vary during the day. Once inside, you will be transported to a historic place with its food, wine and atmosphere.

Our guests are guided through our history by one of our Italian servers. We look forward to providing you with personalized service of the highest quality.

Osterias were built as places to go, eat and trade. They became meeting places for all different social gatherings. Here on the island, were are nestled on a quiet corner of a very busy Avenue. The air of the city linked to a spirit of peace, makes L'Osteria simple, special and different.

Come for the taste, feel and enjoyment of a full traditional Italian dining experience.

Diner Reviews
  • "Excelente servicio y ambiente. Lo mejor fue el aperitivo y postre. Buena recomendación del vino por el mesero."

  • "I book L'Osteria on Open Table as I wanted to make sure I had a plan for Valentines Day. When my wife and I arrived we were somewhat surprised to see the owner and chef outside waiting for us. He immediately made us feel at home. And once inside, we could tell that we were in for a special treat. Once again the chef went through the menu and explained that we could have 2 or 3 courses depending on how hungry we were. We ordered a crab meat appetizer and salad, then shared the Branzino for 2 people. Everything was simply amazing. The food, the service and of course the chef/owner who catered to all of our needs. As they say, you can't judge a book by its cover and this one is simply a restaurant you have to try."

  • "This is consistently the best restaurant that we eat at in Puerto Rico, and we've tried everything. If this restaurant were in NYC, there would be a wait list for reservations; it's just that good."

  • "The food was mediocre at best. The chef owner gives a verbal menu with no prices mentioned leading to some shocking entries on the bill. How about a $60. appetizer which my with and I split. When we asked for our bill we were told it was being figured out by the owner which leads to the question- does he charge what he feels?"

  • "On an inconspicuous back street south of Loiza by the rushing expressway stands a calm oasis of Italian cooking. This was one of the most delicious meals we’ve had. For our first course we chose pumpkin soup, intensely hot and flavorful…plus the smoked thin slices of duck with fig. For the main courses, a rack of NZ lamb crusted with golden crumbs with very thin and large slices of perfectly sautéed potatoes and rosemary. My secondo was tiny medallions of tender pork, stuffed with either asparagus or with figs (more like cross sections than medallions). On the side was a mound of yellow creamed potato. For dessert, light and unfathomly delicious pannacotta with raspberry sauce. Coffee. Sublime! Some of the best food we’ve had."

  • "The place is amazing . The most passionate service and preparation shows in each course . I would love to eat there three nights in a row to witness first hand how the menu is impacted by a team puting their hearts into every dish."

  • "We expected a little pasta place, but instead got an impeccable fine dining experience. It was a little bit of a shock, and having no menu was a little nerve racking (expected to pay around 150 but paid 250 instead) HOWEVER- it was well worth it. The food, service- everything... OUTSTANDING."

  • "We were there 12/23. The reviews looked great. However, the food was hit and miss. the pastas were very good. The fish was not quite so and the rest should have been better. The chef did give very good advice on the wines, but the bill was > $125/pp (the wines were not a major cost). I am not against spending that much but there should be some relation to value."

  • "We were in San Juan for Christmas Eve and I was worried about finding someplace special. This was the spot. Delicious food. Old school service, beautiful dining room. Truly a transcendent experience. Highly recommended."

  • "A memorable night for a family of 7! Great food from a very personable chef who takes pride in his food quality and presentation."

  • "Seriously, it's the best restaurant in puerto rico. The wine list is really good and insanely reasonable: I always drink Barolos by Vietti when I'm there. The chef comes out of the kitchen, explains the food, answers questions, tastes wine with you, and cooks ridiculously good food. I've eaten in every 3 and 4 star italian in NYC, and L'Osteria is better than almost all of them. If this place were in NYC, it'd be three times the price. Can't wait to go back!"
