We have always enjoyed Osteria D’ Osteria, however, on this night Osteria did not have their act together. Table was only partially set with a tray left on one seat and silverware missing at one place. Pizza delivered was not the one ordered. Violinist played too loud. Overall, a major disappointment.

We went for my mom’s 75th Birthday. The restaurant was hot. My son’s salad was barely dressed. No one in our party enjoyed their entree. Disappointing for sure.

Had our favorite waiter, Georgio, and he selected our wine which was excellent. Soup had to be sent back for reheating but was delicious. Great salad. Pasta as always superb.

Our group of three had a very pleasant experience at Osteria D' Assisi - the combination of the food, ambiance, service all contributed to a satisfying lunch. My order was the lunch special -- soup of the day (Gazpacho) and Fettuccine Carolina (1/2 portion) -- with coffee and Tiramisu for dessert. Delizioso!

Due to an illness I need to use a walker to move around. The entire staff was wonderfully accommodating, even opening a side door to shorten my walking distance. Add to that a delicious meal, in a charming setting and you have all the ingredients for a delightful dining experience.

Dinner tonight was not good. We usually love this restaurant so not sure if it was just an off night. The time between our starters
And entrees was way too long. Strangest thing ever. Entrees were smaller than usual. Branzino was suppose to have risotto and came with mashed potatoes. When asked he brought a cup of rice, not risotto??

Party of six and they automatically added 20 percent tip. We know why, because the whole evening was not up to par....

Normally a favorite of ours. Not so much anymore. Too many great restaurants in Santa Fe.

We have been to Italy many times (my daughter lives in Rome). The owner of this restaurant is from Lake Como. Perhaps in that section of Italy the food has little spice. We thought the food although authentic, was tasteless. we wont' be back. Ambiance is great. Lots of customers. We couldn't figure out why.

Food and service were wonderful. The noise level, from conversation, was pretty high, yes. But the restaurant was crowded, it was a Saturday night, everybody was talking and having a good time, and that's bound to happen on Saturday nights in good restaurants.

Best Italian Restaurant in Santa Fe. Consistently great food, service and atmosphere. In a city that puts on a lot of airs and can be snooty Osteria D’Assisi doesn’t and isn’t. Refined casual all the way.

I hope I spell his name correctly...Pietro was our server and he was fabulous! He was so much more than a server. We talked with him and learned a little about him and his home roots. We ordered a bottle of wine and then decided instead of asking his recommendations for an appetizer, salad, dinner and desert that he surprise us. It was absolutely amazing. I usually get the same ole pasta dishes when I dine Italian but we got our of our norm and had the best gnocchi for an appetizer then Cesar salad. For dinner I had what I thought was similar to schnitzel with fries which was delicious and my boyfriend had OSSO BUCO E RISOTTO. Both were FABULOUS! This was followed by cappuccino and pistachio ice cream. I never would’ve guessed I would be a fan of that flavor, but I was. We dined here on a recommendation for our quick 1-night get-a-way and now we will make this a regular dining spot, with Pietro of course, when we come to Santa Fe. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant.

Osteria is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The food is excellent and the varity is great. Homemade pastas, fresh fish, etc. are always the case. The two brothers that own the restaurant and incredible and Pietro, who loves to serve is always fun. He is also an excellent chef and usually makes some special appetizers to share with the diners. Don't miss this great dining experience.

As always food was amazing. However, service was not what we are used to. Entrees were delayed. Second bottle of wine came after entrees were just finished. The check was brought without asking if we would like dessert. It felt like we were being rushed as if there was someone coming in after us...which wasn’t the case. Arianna was either preoccupied with other tables or new to the business. Very poor attentiveness to our table and just not the experience we have come to expect from one of our favorite restaurants.

We just left the restaurant- it was truly atrocious.
It was like a restaurant run by high school students- there was no manager or senior person that we could see.
The waitress served us the wrong appetizers and then we had to wait 25min. for the entrees and they were also incorrect! Then we waited another 15min. Truly it was crazy! The waitress was totally out to lunch - she kept apologizing and then ignoring the table. I actually had to get up from the table numerous times to ask for service, utensils, help clearing the table etc. It was like the staff had no training.
Also all the staff knew what was going on because we were sitting in the bar area and I could see and hear them.
The waitress never asked how anything was or if we wanted coffee or tea w dessert. Oh and even the dessert took forever.
And then the food! The shrimp pasta special was watery and the pasta undercooked. My partners Bronzino was tough, bony and inedible. All the food was very sub-par Italian- and that’s being kind. Unfortunately we were being treated by out of town guests and it was really embarrassing for everyone. This experience was absolutely awful.

We had a great time for a family of 3 at this relaxed Italian food gem. So far, one of our best servers in Santa Fe, she brought great energy to the table. The food was perfect and easy for a family who didn't want to go hard core fine dining. It was certainly a romantic place for couples. The wine selection was well thought out and versatile for those who want to go a little farther. Ask for "Gabriella" she was outstanding and made the dining experience exceptional!
