A word from Osteria - Moorestown
A traditional Italian Osteria, where you can choose from our homemade pastas, thin crust pizzas, or wood grilled meats and fish.
Inspired by Osteria Philadelphia, our Moorestown Mall location is classically designed to have a warm, evocative feel in an industrial setting. With wine-red-stained concrete floors, a gleaming vintage Faema coffee machine, solid antique pine country tables and a wall of beautifully stained wine boxes. Additionally, the menu changes seasonally, to go with our 100 bottle Italian wine list featuring grapes from Trentino to Sicily and all stops in between.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Service was very good. Competent staff. Menu was a bit esoteric. Food was prepared well. Nice wine list, with high-quality by-the-glass options. Food was well prepared and flavorful. Nothing about was good enough to offset the fact that the front room offers a spectacular view of the Sears department store. In my opinion, far better options for Italian exist in South Jersey. Wouldn't go back."

  • "For a Marc Vetri experience, a little disappointing. Not my type of Sat. Night dining spot. Service was great, apps. were good, but I like my grilled octopus with a little more char and lemon and olive oil I could taste. Pasta w/ fresh fave and mint was very good but whoever added the fresh mint could have used half the amt. It was too overpowering. Less is best. Now for our entre, bistecca for two ( rib eye) cooked to perfection. med. rare. but it had so much grizzle in almost every bite that it no way could be enjoyed. The waitress was very apologetic and the Manager went above and beyond to make us happy. Would definitely return to give a second try when in the area."

  • "Food was very good especially the pizzas. Entrees are somewhat pricey considering the size. Service was fair. The server was personable but seemed to forget about us. Our plates were cleared by a manager who also provided us with dessert menus. We had to ask several times for refills of our beverages."

  • "We stopped in for dinner, and had a great meal, not too expensive. Our service ( waiter was Kyle) was great! Food is very good, although not exceptional. Wine list a bit limited. Since is 30 mnutes from my home doubt i will go out of my way, but if in Moorestown would definitely return."

  • "Excellent food. I went during restaurant week, the choices were great and so was the value. A few screaming children were present. It is at a mall so I wasn't surprised but the tables are really close together so there is minimal buffer"

  • "We dined at Osteria during Restaurant Week - 3 courses for $35. We really enjoyed the margherita and parma pizzas. The entrees were well prepared. We noticed that all the other tables had metal buckets that contained bread and breadsticks and a metal olive oil pitcher. As a result of poor service, we did not receive the bread or the oil which was disappointing. Overall it was a good experience."

  • "We had a memorable meal which left me feeling that I had just had a visit in Italy. The food was very flavorful meal ended by outstanding desserts. I will return soon."

  • "By chance we were there on restaurant week. With no soft surfaces in the room, it was very noisy that evening. Not great for conversation but the food was excellent. Our only complaint was that we are not "foodies" and could have used an explanation of what some of the menu items were. Be sure to try some of the great desserts."

  • "I love itlian food and Osteria provided a different glimpse of Italian food. I went on during "Pre-it Restaurant Week" so my menu was limited. However what was available was unique and diverse. The flatbread was great and their pastas were nice and rich. The flavor was a bit bland and I wasnted to add salt and or garlic so some of the dishes but I chalked it up to the food being simple and not requiring bold flavors. I love exotic and richly flavored food such as Indian and Asian meals so my opinion may be tendentious. The server was great and we had nice personable moments which always makes a dining experience excellent."

  • "We were very pleased by the menu and service at Osteria. Eclectic menu. Well prepared and great service that could have been overbearing. Happy to see that the menu seemed to have changed from the original which seemed to be pork heavy."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "I like Osteria. It is very cool inside, the food and the service are good. I was, however, very disappointed in their Restaurant Week Menu. I was really hoping for something creative and fun from them. But they simply labelled the left side of the menu as Course 1 and the right side of the menu as Course 2. So huge pizza and steak :/"

  • "Our main complaint was the noise level. The 4 of us had to shout to hear one another speak. Also, two of our 4 entrees had to be returned to the kitchen- a fish dish was raw and a chicken dish was cold."

  • "We snuck in last minute for an early dinner celebrating my Mother's 70th Birthday. It was restaurant week and the menu was terrific. I asked the sommelier to suggest something to go with my fusilli with fava beans and mint and she quickly offered an excellent sparking lumbrusco rose. It was perfect. They even had a few fitting dishes for my 5 year old. Everyone loved their meal and my 86 year old Italian Father said, "this is the best meal I've had out in a long time." That's actually the only review you need! A great time for us all!"

  • "Great dinner at Osteria during PREIT Restaurant Week. Would love to be able to say we will be back often, because the food was phenomenal. But normal cost of dinner for two plus drinks will certainly be over $100, and that puts Osteria in the "special treat" category rather than being our "go-to" place every other week. You get what you pay for!!! It is fabulous."

  • "Menu was difficult to interpret because of all Italian dishes. Pricey menu and the venue did not reflect an upscale feel."

  • "A bit noisy, but a great staff. The restaurant is located in a mall, and has both indoor and some outdoor seating. The pancetta wrapped snails with spinach potato purée was fantastic. The snapper with escarole, cannelloni beans and olives was very good. Not quite sure how to attack the pis skin. Good portions and unfortunately no room for dessert. The coffee and cappuccino were very tasty."

  • "Osteria is a great local Resturant which saves folk driving into Philly. Food was well prepared although portion sizes were small. Quite expensive but good for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Once we were seated we totally forgot that we were eating in a mall. Osteria was so charming, the food so beautifully served and delicious that we felt we were in downtown Philadelphia. You can spend a lot, which we did, eating appetizer's, main courses and dessert, or a little sharing a pizza and 1 dessert, which the couple next to us did. The service was superb from the busboy to the servers to the waitress who took the order."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Our waitress was good! But the managr spent 30 of the 90 mins there at the table next to us talking to a couple. Reading their cell phone. Taking pictures. Obviously sucking up to a good customer. Walked by me 11 times. Never once asked how my meal was."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I expected more from Marc Vetri. I ordered the rabbit. It was so over-spiced with rosemary that the taste of rosemary dominated the dish, like eating a rosemary plant. Worse yet, there were small shards of bone throughout the dish, making it nearly impossible to eat. I have NEVER complained at a restaurant - I generally just live and learn and not go back - but this time I mentioned the issue to my waitress, which I did very quietly so others did not hear me. The waitress asked if I was OK and then left the table. The manager came over, asked the same question, and then told me the beer I had ordered was on the house. Huh? My beer was fine. It was my dinner that was terrible. Will never go back to this restaurant."

  • "We decided to bring the kids along for a "nice" dinner to Osteria at the Moorestown Mall. Even with happy hour ($5 wine and great $7 cocktail), one shared appetizer and two shared desserts--we still were looking at $200 with tip (two adults and two kids). We remarked to ourselves how the Osteria option provided a high end alternative to chains at the Cherry Hill Mall (along now with Distrito next door). And that is a good thing. The food is excellent; the service improved (from our last visit). It is a worthwhile spend when looking for a quality dining experience in South Jersey."

  • "Don't let the mall location deceive you...this is great food....even if you do have to walk through the mall! We chose the Moorestown location because we felt the traffic & parking would be less of a hassle. The menu is fantastic! Cocktails fabulous! I enjoyed the Cotechino & the roasted suckling pig (they had me at "crispy skin"!). My fiance ordered the pig trotter cavatelli & the chicken liver rigatoni & then the skirt steak which was the only thing he was kinda disappointed about. The menu said it came with ramps, but his was served with green onions. We realize July is past prime ramp season, but it was the whole reason he chose that dish. For dessert, the budino & salted caramel butterscotch zuppa...both yummy! Would return!"

  • "Very good food. My wife and I wouldn't have gone unless we had the gift card, but will more than likely return. It was quite busy for a Tuesday. Service was excellent. We never waited long for our food."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "This was my first time for brunch at Osteria and I'll definitely be going back because there were so many other things I wanted to try. The lemon pancakes filled with ricotta and topped with strawberry maple syrup were amazing. So was the cotechino sausage with fried egg on polenta. Definitely not your typical buffet brunch experience."

  • "My wife and I had our first meal here. It was good but not worth the money. Both our main dishes were way too salty. Do something with the parking lot view. Trellis, plants???"

  • "If you love Italian food, you will love this place. If you love creative cuisine, you will love this place. We brought my in-laws and my wife's grandmother with us this time around - a tough crowd, to be sure! My in-laws are foodies, but my wife's grandmother is a very picky (and simple) eater. Everyone was able to find something on this menu that they LOVED!"

  • "The service was appallingly slow, and our server seemed completely uninterested in us. We waited lengthy intervals to order and receive each course. Despite a discussion of "medium rare," one of the two "medium rare" skirt steaks that we ordered was extremely overcooked. A manager arranged to have us share one while a second was prepared, but after such a delay, it was too little, too late. It was ages before we were offered coffee and dessert; when we had finished coffee with no sign of dessert, we canceled dessert and had another long wait for the check. The bright spot was the wine steward and the excellent wine he helped us choose. If I ever return I will choose a nice bottle of wine and a pizza, and eschew the more complicated dishes."

    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Most of our party complained about the noise level, but the dishes I tried were up to expectations, for the most part. Grilled vegetable salad was just as tasty as our server promised, the veal ragu and beet/chèvre ravioli delicious, but the favorite at the table was the rabbit and polenta. SO tasty, and nothing I'd ever make at home! The salmon/spring pea cannelloni were not what I was hoping for... Peas did not seem like fresh spring peas, and the pasta was crispy and dry... Not the traditional presentation. Overall, an enjoyable evening and would go back for a special occasion."

  • "We dined on a Tuesday night so I did not expect a full house as it usually is on the weekends. Nevertheless, we were greeted promptly and shown to our corner table, which was perfect for just the two of us. Our server, Aimee, was very attentive and answered all of our questions (she definitely knew the menu - for me, a very important trait in wait staff). Having dined at Osteria in Philly, my expectations were already set and then met. The special cold grilled vegetable antipasto hit the spot on a hot day and the octopus pizza was a nice complement - the chile makes the pizza."

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "All of the food was really great; well prepared, attractively plated and served well. We recommend that you strongly consider the specials; the cold vegetable salad antipasto gave everyone at the table something they really liked. The suckling pig special was really outstanding as well. The portions were not so immense that you couldn't leave room for dessert - and dessert was definitely worth saving space for. All in all it was an excellent dining experience."

  • "For a high class restaurant I don't want to sit on wooden benches or chairs. Squirmin' and wormin' all night long. And the prices are way too high! That said, the food was very good albeit super Sicilian! At my age just give me the biggest bang for the buck - we spent $142 for two and I would say it was worth about $92. Sometimes (every once in a while) you get what you pay for, because most of the time you pay too much!"
