We were with a group of 8 and in a bit of a hurry to get to a play. The service was excellent and efficient. The food was excellent. We all enjoyed it.

Spectacular Italian in Santa Fe
Outstanding service and delicious Italian Cuisine. The Staff treats you like a member of their Family (a good thing). We enjoyed the Italian Cheese Appetizer, Minestrone, Osso Bucco con Risotto Milanise, and the Linguini (Squid's Ink) Frutti di Mare. Dessert was Tira Misu. A brilliant dinner!

Made a reservation for a party of 10. We were immediately shown to our own private dining room with a fireplace. Wait staff was extremely professional and helpful. The wine and food were excellent and served in a very timely fashion. I will certainly eat here again when I am in Santa Fe!

Good enough we returned . . .
We chose Osteria d'Assisi for Mother's Day and were delighted. The food was excellent; the service impeccable and the ambience delightful.
We returned for our last dinner in Santa Fe because we wanted it to be memorable. This time the weather was such that we could eat outside which was very nice. I think we preferred the ambience inside, but we loved the breeze outside. Both times the dinner was excellent and the service was just wonderful. They truly make you feel at home.
We had the recommended wine on Mother's Day and it was excellent. On our last night we chose a house wine and it was also very good.
The Osteria d'Assisi was our favorite restaurant in Santa Fe.
5/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was great. As well as the service. Our waitress, Ami, did a wonderful job taking care of all our needs. I certainly recommend this place to anyone who wants a great Italian meal.

Excellent Dining Experience
The presentation and preparation of each course was exquisite and memorable. The best of many wonderful meals we enjoyed in Santa Fe. Not to be missed!

Great food and good options for the vegetarian in the party. Will return next visit to Santa Fe.

We had a great dinner at the Osteria. Pietro was our server and did a great job. His home made antipasti were terrific. My wife is Gluten intolerant, but Pietro brought some gluten free flat bread that tasted great. The Oso bucco was wonderful as was the beet salad and the Buratta with tomatos and greens.
Avemo una bella seratta!

I always love the Ossteria....
We have a home in Santa Fe and eat here often. Always good food and very professional service. We highly recommend it. Get reservations during high season!

Wonderful Dining in Santa Fe
The Osteria d'Assisi may not come to the top of the "most visited restaurant" lists in Santa Fe, but it should!
My husband and I had - by far- our best dining experience of the week at this little neighborhood gem. We also dined at several of the better known Satnat Fe restaurants, and each time left disappointed - but not so at Osteria D'Assisi! The kudos began with the hostess, then our server Molly was charming and authentic. The Burrata with Heirloom Tomatoes and Prosciutto gave a wonderful start, followed by my magnificent beef tenterloin steak and my husband's pasta which was perfectly prepared. The wine-by-glass selections were very nice and reasonably priced. I highly reccomend Osteria D'Assisi to anyone visiting Santa Fe!

Who knew red trout could be so good
After days of New Mexican food, my wife needed a "pasta fix". Her pasta special was pretty good and hit the spot. But I hit the jackpot trying the red trout (which I had never had before). It was perfectly prepared and was some of the best fish I've had anywhere. With a decent house red wine, it made for a lovely date night...even without red or green chilies.

Osteria Favorite Neighborhood Place
This restaurant has a wonderful ambiance befitting the Trattoria style - excellent food and service and a very friendly atmosphere. Dinners and lunches are wonderful and outdoor dining is quiet and very pleasant. Ask for Pietro's tables - it's worth it.

noise noise noise
It's difficult to maintain a conversation given the noise level.

Group of 4 from out of town had a delicious dinner and enjoyed friendly, timely service. We'll definitely come back!

A Longtime favorite
We're in Santa Fe several weeks every year --- just up the street from Osteria. Walking distance which is always nice. Osteria is a longtime favorite neighborhood place. Everything good and the prices are reasonable and in proportion to the dinner. We eat inside and outside. The outside is a little cramped but certainly not bad. My favorite is the Osso Bucco -- always very good and very hearty. Desserts are always nice. Osteria has always been and continues to be among our very favorites in Santa Fe, -- but there are many wonderful places to dine.

A wonderful overall experience
A wonderful overall experience from the bar through dessert. The staff was wonderful and the food excellent. Thank you for a job well done.

Breaking Bread on a Monday
I dined on a recent Monday evening with two close friends and we had a lovely meal. The beet/watermelon salad was beautiful to look at and tasted as good as it looked. We each had ravioli, two vegetarian and one veal. Both choices were good. For dessert, we split the lemon meringue pie - tart and nott too sweet. The service was prompt, friendly and knowledgable. All in all, it was a sweet way to spend a Monday evening with friends.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wild mushroom/cheese pizza was excellent. Crispy crust and flavorful mushrooms with good cheese as well. No tomato sauce. The service was good and the ambiance was nice. Nice experience.

Great Food at Osteria d'Assisi
Consistently wonderful food always brings us back. In two visits in July, service was good the first time and mediocre the second time.

Pleasant dining experience
We have never been disappointed in our visits to this neighborhood restaurant. The food is excellent, reasonably priced, and the
staff friendly and accommodating without being intrusive. The extensive menu includes not only pasta and pizza, but some interesting salads as well as vegetarian and gluten free items. The chef uses fresh ingredients, simply prepared, and even shared
a recipe with us!

Very close to a dining experience
Very close to a dining experience in Italy. Still need a few pointers (fresh ground pepper on the olive oil bread dipping plate)

We enjoyed our 41st anniversary at Osteria! Everything was great and Lino comped us a wonderful tiramisu for desert. I enjoyed a great linguini dish and my wife had gluten-free pizza. Portions were very generous-had to take a lot of it home!
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and service
Great Italian in Santa Fe. Watermelon salad was unusual and very tasty. Squid ink linguini with seafood was good too. Lemon merangue pie for dessert was excellent. Went before the opera. Great service. Got us out with plenty of time without feeling rushed at all.
8/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
We ate here after our wedding. It was excellent, the food was authentic Italian (I know because I am Italian) and Pietro our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. Will definitely eat here again next time we are in Santa Fe.
8/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have lived in Italy and visited it often. This restaurant ranks amongst some of the best I have been to including those in Rome and Florence and all the wonderful local restaurant surprises in Tuscany and hidden in the hills along the northern coast! Thank you! We shall return with great pleasure . . .

Best Italian bistro in Santa Fe
Maybe the best Italian food in town, however, there isn't much competition in Santa Fe for Italian food. All in all we had a pleasurable evening at the Osteria. Well trained and knowledge waiters eager to help without being in your face. I over heard locals asking about one waiter, Pietro, in particular who was on vacation in Italy. Nice wine selection even if you order by the glass. Well balanced menu with offerings for all tastes. Their bar was fully occupied with locals the night we were there.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
I made my reservation on Open Tables on line site. When we arrived they did not have the reservation. They did find us a table and provided us with very good service and food.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and service were flawless.
Food and service were flawless. Both of us had different daily specials and they were perfect. Wait staff was attentive but not smothering which is how we like things. Pace of food was spot on too. Time to talk between courses but not excessive. A very nice by the glass wine selection as well with several Italian choices you don't see often. Highly recommend.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Relaxed and friendly
We had a very nice dinner here on a Friday evening. My wife and I both had the pumpkin raviolis, which were delicious and cooked to perfection, not overcooked. Our friend had the fettucini, which was also quite good. Although there are plenty of meat dishes it was easy for us to find vegetarian selections, as well. Extensive wine list.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have had the pleasure of eating at Osteria many times. I am Italian and am very picky about Italian food. The food there is always wonderful. The service is always friendly and prompt. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. I brought my sister in who was visiting from back east and she loved it. All in all, its one of my favorite restaurants in town.

Having just returned from Italy this is very good authentic northern Italian cuisine.

Yummy Thanksgiving Meal
We took a chance on an Italian restaurant for an all American meal -- a traditional Thanksgiving meal -- turkey with the trimmings. It was probably the best Thanksgiving meal I've ever eaten! Wow! Wonderful flavors, generous portions, great choices on the menu -- we had a hard time choosing! Server was very good, restaurant was small. We had a loud party seated directly behind us, so it was a bit loud for me, and the vent was blowing right by my seat, so I just placed my purse over it, and that took care of that.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Personal pizzas are delicious, and so are the other dishes i have enjoyed there over the years. Rebecca is delightful if you are fortunate enough to have her as your server.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Romantic and cozy place especially on a cold winter night!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had dinner at Osteria d'Assisi on Sat night with a friend from San Diego. It was a lovely evening --- wonderful drinks, delicious food (2 of us ordered from the specials menu---delish!) and we highly recommend the flourless choc dessert. It was amazing & plenty for the 3 of us to share. We also had reservations at Osteria for Thanksgiving Day which was so relaxing & delicious. It truly is one of our favorite restaurants in town. Last but not least, the staff is always polite & helpful & make our visits most enjoyable!
