    What a delightful and delicious evening! The food was extraordinary! Any place in the world this restaurant would certainly earn three stars! Our waiter, Pietro, was without a doubt the very best one could ask for . . . only to be matched by the food and wine he served. Since I lived in Italy, I have not had such a delicious and fun dinner! What a treat. Many thanks to all concerned . . . We all look forward to returning.

    The restaurant was not very busy on a Thursday in early September, so we were able to have a table away from others for a business discussion. One person ordered the special chicken pasta with salad -- a lunch special which is a good price deal. The other person ordered the eggplant main dish which is stunningly presented as a small tower of eggplant -- very good taste. The bread was not remarkable -- I seem to recall that the bread was tastier other times I visited. Desserts were wonderful! A lemon meringue pie was faultless. The chocolate cake with caramel sauce looked divine and my friend ate it all with relish.

    We came to the restaurant to celebrate my husband's upcoming birthday, wanting a special experience. As a starter, we had ordered the beef carpaccio, but as it was served, we saw that it was carpaccio made with proscuitto, which we did not expect. The lamb loin was excellent. The waiters could have been a bit more observant. We got the carpaccio but had neither bread nor butter, nor did we have oil or salt/pepper on the table. Room for improvement!

    My husband and I had a great meal at Osteria in May and brought friends to dine with us in August. This time we waited over an hour for our entrees and when the food arrived all entrée's were inedible!! Manager did comp the entrée's but such a disappointing experience! The upsides are a beautiful resturant and excellent service. Not sure we will try it again!

    The most important thing about any restaurant is whether the food is tasty. This definitely was. And for an Italian restaurant, it's important to offer authenticity -- which this place also does. Limoncello made in house. Yay! Nice selection of pasta dishes as well as meat and fish entrees. Definitely on my list of places to which I will return in Santa Fe.

    Dined on 8/14/2014
    Over the years we have sampled many, many restaurants in Santa Fe, and this is one of the best. Very Italian, but traditional, not foodied up. I had the best Caesar Salad I've ever had (but no anchovies, alas) and ditto the Osso Bucco. The others in our party raved, particularly about the Tomato basil soup. We were going to a performance, so no time for desert. The Wine list is excellent, with many that I knew, instead of so many that pride themselves on wines no one has ever heard of, good though they might be. The service was excellent and attentive. We can't wait to get back.

    We recently celebrated a special occasion here with my brother. The beet salad was not only tasty, but large enough for the three of us to share. We enjoyed the lamb loin and the lamb loin special - ample servings, perfectly prepared. Our server was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. One dessert was, again, enough for the three of us to share. We have enjoyed meals at this restaurant in the past; never been disappointed!

    Dined on 8/9/2014
    We have a number of Italian restaurants in Santa Fe, but Osteria is really the only one that is truly Italian - owned by Lino who brings his chef from Italy to prepare the real thing. Not an extensive menu but every inch of it is authtentic, all the way down to the after dinner house-made Limoncello. A really nice room plus great outdoor tables in warm weather. And the clientele is, mostly, well-dressed knowledgeable diners who add a note of class to the evening.

    Dined on 7/22/2014
    Osteria D' Assisi has been around a long time, and it's about time the management takes action on 2 fronts. Quality of food served, and servers. First off the food.. Mediocre at best. Their Caesar Salad is still the best in the region but that's as far as it goes. The other dishes sampled fell far below standards. Second the servers... typical of Santa Fe, Loud, in your face, obnoxious and a major distraction to a night out. The Community College is starting a class on front room restaurant service and many of Santa Fe's restaurant would be well served by sending their wait staff for some much needed training. You don't get you monies worth at Osteria D' Assisi, so my recommendation is to pass on this one.

    When we arrived we were seated by the manager whom I would give 4 stars to. However our waitress was in a huge hurry and forgot to tell us the specials. I told her I didn't eat meat and the only fish was tuna which I didn't feel like. When I asked her if a pasta could be served with anything other than cream sauce she said no, but suggested I order it with shrimp, insisting the pink sauce was very light. I just barely ate as my husband said it was very rich. As we were leaving I noticed that on a Board the specials were listed and halibut as well as tomato basil soup were on it. The manager was very distressed and wanted to know who our waitress was and did she mention the specials.

    We went to Osteria on our last night in Santa Fe. What a pleasant surprise. The entire staff is gracious, helpful, and highly competent. And the food was outstanding. One of the specials the night we were there was cioppino. It was one of the best I've had in North America. Another special, my wife's choice, was homemade pasta with blue crab from the Chesapeake. Another outstanding choice. If you get a chance you should go to this restaurant.

    The food was excellent and the waiter was good and had helpful suggestions. However, I was disappointed in the noise level and choice of table we were given. The kitchen staff was talking in loud voices about tv programs and miscellaneous topics and basically killed any atmosphere that was to be had. We did dine early and the place was pretty empty. I wish they had been more attentive to putting us at a table away from the noise of the kitchen staff. I am not sure that we will return based on that experience!

    For our last night in Santafe we wanted a place not too touristy that locals went to as well. Osteria d'Assisi was a great choice. Sitting on their front patio we first enjoyed some of the best calamari I've ever eaten followed by a seafood taglioni that my husband and I split. It was great! Pistachio sorbet completed a delightful meal.
