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
  • "Great atmosphere and interesting menu. wonderful addition to the moorestown mall"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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???"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "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."

  • "If you find yourself on the NJ side of the river the Moorestown location for Osteria is a good spot at a great price."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "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 just had dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. The meal was delicious and the service was excellent. We will definitely be back. So nice to have a Vetri restaurant in NJ."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "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."

  • "4th or 5th time here:busy and the waitress was very nice. We ordered drinks and then wine with dinner and there was a long wait for that despite the fact they were not overly busy"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Our first visit to this restaurant was a few weeks ago. The food and service were outstanding. We were seated in the very front of the restaurant, looking out onto the mall parking lot. Frankly, for a restaurant at this price point, ambiance (including the view) is a significant part of the dining experience, With a view like that, they should have blinds on the windows and keep them closed. On our return visit, on 6/7, we were seated in a small, almost private room off of the bar. There were no windows, so there was no issue of the view. The decor, however, does not convey the impression that dinner at Osteria is a "special occasion". Fortunately, Chef Vetri's artfully created and prepared food makes up for any other shortcomings."

  • "8 of us tried this new restaurant at the Moorestown Mall. With the tip, we were close to $700.00!!! Wow, a little on the high side, but that included 2 really good bottles of wine, 1 cocktail, 4 beers and 2 grappas!! The food was amazing. Looked beautiful and tasted even better. We tried a raw tuna app, large roasted vegetable app that came served family style, 2 different pizzas, ravioli, salmon, pasta and a roast pork dish with chunks of pork, ribs and crackling. The sides, desserts and coffee were great, as well. Our Server, Shyama, was on top of everything! I can't wait to go back!!"

  • "Great experience. Very knowledgeable staff. Try the baby pig entrée. Excellent for large groups and entertaining as well. "
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Food was very good and our server was personable, professional, and knowledgeable. Our experience was somewhat diminished by the noise level. Being Saturday night it was crowded but the space is very tight and we almost had to shout to make ourselves heard. Were it not for the bright setting sun we would have asked to be seated outside. We would consider returning on weekday or for lunch."

  • "My wife and I went for dinner. Pizza was overpriced, Veggie Antipasto was excellent and Grilled Red Snapper was delicious. Service was awesome- our server, Janine, was great! Wanted to sit outside, but it's just a view of Moorestown Mall parking lot."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Great service and food. Gabe always insures that the service is top notch. We highly recommend this as local favorite. Check out the Rose' wines on the patio. Can't wait till they bring back the bittersweet chocalte sorbet."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The seating needs to be redesigned. Why? It took us 3 tries to get a comfortable arrangement. We went with another couple & they will not return either. It is too noisy & the menu is too Italian. The tables are too close to the kitchen area that has no doors. In addition, the wait staff brushes by most of the tables. I don't know what the designer was thinking...?"
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • " Great preparation with surprise combination of ingredients that are out of this world. The dry aged steak has the best flavor of any steak we have ever eaten. The pastas are all prepared on premise and are well prepared. While we normally would not eat liver , the pasta and liver is to die for. The beet salad is our standard starter. Portions are generous and we normally have difficulty finishing our meal and need a take home bag. We enjoy the seating at the chefs table and the love and care that the chefs exhibit while working. "

  • "We had yet another great meal at Osteria. The appetizer of assorted grilled vegetables was tasty and interesting. My husband said the sweet breads were good. I had green pea cannoli with salmon and my husband had the special roast pig. Both were excellent. The roast pig was especially fantastic. For dessert I was disappointed they did not have the ricotta gelato, but the coconut and blueberry were almost as good. The service was as always excellent. We look forward to our next outstanding meal at Osteria."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The antipasti are especial notable. We had the pancetta-wrapped snails and the charcuterie plate, both outstanding. Both times I've been at Osteria, it's been on the early side for dinner (around 5pm), and I was virtually the only customer. I hope that it is attracting more diners later in the evening, because it is a fantastic addition to the NJ-suburbs dining scene."

  • "My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday night. Overall we had a very good experience. The food was delicious. It is not traditional Italian if that's what you're expecting. Ravioli primi was excellent as was chocolate flan dessert. It was difficult for us to get over fact that it's in Moorestown Mall. Also it is aggressively priced for portions of some of the dishes. We'll definitely try it again despite this. "

  • "This is such a refreshing change of pace for the Mooresetown area!! The food was delicious the decor and outdoor area very nice, and the food....well outstanding!!! Brandon our waiter, was VERY attentive to our needs. He not only treated us a customers, but struck up some nice conversation about the upcoming area. We will definitely be back...and I will try to save room for gelati next time (maybe you will venture into trying garlic as a savory flavor) "

  • "Food was amazing! I just wish the server was better. She was friendly and all but not very helpful. Didn't introduce herself, didn't ask if we've dined their befire, didn't offer to explain how the menu works or make recommendations, just expected more. Either way I'm going back for the food, just wish the service was equally as good."

  • "For our wedding anniversary, my husband and I had dinner there. Octopus salad it was yummy. My husband had the slow baby roast pig. I had the pork milanese it was delicious. Here's the problem our waitress.... I asked the waitress to pack our left over and she didn't put our roasted pig in a container, which we paid $32 for it."
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "The service is welcoming prompt and very accommodating. Everyone from the hostess to the waitress to the sommelier to the manager was wonderful! Way too noisy although I was told that the owner wants the elevated noise to create a buzz and a community atmosphere."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Both Mom and Grandmom were blown away by the brunch at Osteria. Who ever knew pork roll on a pizza could be so delicious. The entrees where all very original and very tasty. We did have to wait a few extra minutes for one of the dishes, which wasn't a bad wait at all, but even still we were given an amazing house made pop tart for the inconvenience. Great food and service every time I am at Osteria."

  • "The amount of wine for a $12.00 Glass is not a value at all. We gad a very good northern Italian white, but the pour was very small. We enjoy Osteria, food and wait staff, but need to kick it up on the wine per glass value please... "
