Osteria is a truly authentic Italian Restaurant on Westover Terrace in Greensboro. You'll feel like you've just been transported to Emilia Romagna, region of Italy. The restaurant is decorated with wine cabinets filled with well selected only italian wines. Our chefs adhere to traditional methods of preparation and use only the finest ingredients imported from Italy in addition to our local produce. We only use fresh pasta made daily. Pasta and fresh seafood take center stage of our menu, in addition to other dishes. Desserts and bread are also freshly made at Osteria.

Using OpenTable, I requested a table for two and asked that we have a quiet area. When we arrived we were seated at a tiny table against the wall in a large room that had a very large group of people eating together. The table was cramped and the crowd was noisy. We asked to be seated elsewhere but were told there were no other Tables. Since I had asked particularly for a quiet area I was surprised at their choice of tables. We left without eating. The waiter seemed unconcerned. It felt quite unfriendly.

I was looking for a quick light yet out of the ordinary lunch between UNCG graduation ceremonies. Osteria met every expectation with a nice selection of delicious light Italian lunch offerings that were exquisitely prepared and served in a timely fashion.

Though my dish was quite good (Bronzino), our server appeared very uninterested in us and it really effected our evening.

Our waiter was overwhelmed with customer to serve and several times appeared to be annoyed with having to deal with us. He never smiled and acted stressed with what he had to handle.
The food was good but we were surprised when told you did not have amaretto or limoncello?

My only complaint was that the food was not hot - mostly lukewarm even asking for it to be heated up. The food here is wonderful. There are many options. I truly love this restaurant. Tables are nicely spaced. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Glad we tried it once but won't return. The space is adjacent two retail units that, no fault of theirs, is simply too hard to make into a nice restaurant environment. Even though there were only ~ 15 patrons on our side of the restaurant it was loud. Server was attentive and observant without being pushy. The food .... I had a seafood ravioli dish that tasted fine, which is exactly its problem ... it really didn't have anything unique to offer. My wife had one of the specials ... grouper with shrimp, squid, and salt (listed as a main ingredient because on purpose) . Because it was a "special" and not on the menu price was not disclosed. The check comes ... $20 for my dish, $38 for hers. Nice try guys.

My wife's pasta was great . My special grouper was not good because the grouper itself was rubbery and could not have been fresh grouper as advertised ($38). Service was good . Seating was close but we knew that going in . Bar was loud but that didn't bother us . My fish dish was terrific , except for the fish !

The seafood at Osteria is always excellent. We had been seated for about 7 minutes before we were asked about drink service, and I was disappointed that a Manhattan was served without a maraschino cherry. A small thing, but details matter when one goes out. But this is a wonderful restaurant and I always look forward to dining here.

Dinner was great, the space is poorly arranged and the lighting conditions pretty bad. I was dissatisfied with the dessert described as Italian Cheesecake and there are no words to describe what I was serve. It was unpalatable dessert...

We were visiting our daughter in Greensboro and went here for her birthday dinner. Based on reviews and pictures I thought it would be more special. It's fine but not very nice inside - showing some wear and tear - and not the shabby intentional kind. The restaurant is small and there was a large group so it was loud until they left. Not the restaurants fault, but not pleasant. My husband ordered pasta in a cream sauce, my daughter the ribeye and I had the lobster/shrimp pasta. The food was good, not great. My daughter's steak was way too salty and my dinner arrived at least 5 minutes after the other entrees arrived. They did comp us a dessert but not sure that was enough. I would not go back. If someone asked I wouldn't say "don't go" but I also wouldn't give it a glowing endorsement. It was just okay overall.

My wife and I are frequent diners here and in our last two visits we have been shuttled off to a “private dining room” which is a great space for large parties but not so much for a two-top. This room also seems to serve as a training ground for new or temporary help. We plan to avoid dining in this room in the future. We also find that many if not all of the desserts come from a sister business nearby which do not compare to the house-made desserts of earlier times, the panna cotta in particular suffers as a result.

We felt very rushed. Our entrees came out before we even finished our apps. We understand the need to turn tables but at a higher end place like this patrons should be allowed to hold the table a little longer especially since we were celebrating a birthday.
