We have never been disappointed in our visit to Alza Osteria. This year, the had some new appetizers which were outstanding. One of our favorite places.
We went for Mother’s Day lunch. The staff is very nice and the food was pretty good. Fresh bread was great. Entrees. Choices were great. Prices online were 25% cheaper then menu we got, not sure why maybe COVID menu prices in Room dining. I was disappointed that we were on time( 5 min early) for our reservation and we were told another reservation was going to be at our table in 1 hr 15 minutes later. We felt that was rushed and we had a baby also with us that would make that tough. We opted to sit outside to avoid being rushed and we were there longer then the 1h15m.
I plan on returning for apps and drinks. The flatbread was very tasty.
service was amazing, small family owned, or if not it has that feel. great food, we will be back soon
this is an outstanding owner/chef run restaurant. It is nice to be able to talk to her. The food and service are as good as any. Eat here
Food and drinks were super yummy!! I would recommend their calamari!
The staff was nice and the food was delicious. We tried the fettuccine Alfredo and the creamy arrabiata - both were very tasty. The bee's knees cocktail was great, too.
Great food, great service, reasonable prices, and a casual friendly atmosphere make for an awesome dining experience any night of the week. Lauren puts her heart and soul into every dish and her team does a great job conveying her passion through their friendly service.
Really slow service but great food.
Wow, what a nice surprise this neighborhood restaurant is! Friends recommended it to us, it was great! They have a good menu, and you can substitute EGGPLANT NOODLES for most of the noodle dishes, which is a GREAT way to have a big Italian dinner without all the calories! First time with veggie noodles for me, what a pleasant surprise! And the “Lettuce Soup” was a treat, too, also a first time, but when the waiter described it as having a tomato soup consistency, but it’s green because it’s lettuce, and with Taragon spice, I had to try it! Boy, was it good! And their Cesar salad dressing is really delicious, too! So, we will DEFINITELY being going back soon! Thank you!
This is a great little neighborhood gem. I love the Tuscan flatbread and the pizza. The service Is stellar with a great wine list. My husband loves the huge beer selection and finds new and interesting craft beers to try. They now serve cocktails so theres something for everyone! A great find that we will visit often.
I love this place. I would like to recommend this wonderful restaurant to everybody. Literally food is awesome and service is great.
Delicious Italian food done right! We enjoyed fresh baked bread and herb butter to start, with meatballs & crostini. We shared a small pepperoni pizza and linguini w/clams. Absolutely delicious and excellent service! Can’t wait to go back to this gem
Fantastic family business, always feel warm and welcoming!
I can see why this restaurant is always crowded. I highly suggest a reservation as many people waited an hour to get in. The value for your buck is amazing. I had the Lasagna which includes a salad for a bargain and the food was awesome. Don’t wait to eat here. Sooooo good
nice, little neighborhood italian restaurant. moderately priced, great service and great atmosphere
The food was great and the staff was helpful and accommodating.
Went for pizza and wings after finding this place on Valentine’s Day. Definitely worth the trip.
The food was absolutely delicious and was well priced for the amount we got. I had the fettuccine Alfredo and minestrone soup, both of which were fantastic. Our server Kyle was friendly and provided wonderful service.
Excellent beer selection, great food & great service, what more can you ask for?
I have been here now 7 times in the last few months. The food is consistently good. The service is personal, and the place is friendly. Highly recommend it to anyone.
Excellent food and service. This is a neighborhood gem.
Always pleased with the excellent food, wine, and service.
Food and service was amazing !! So happy to have found this little gem. Looking forward to our next visit!
The food was incredible the best pasta ever ! I totally loved the heart shape pizza we got for valentines it was amazing . The service was great our server was extremely nice ! Definitely would come here again
Ordered the lobster ravioli with scallops and shrimp, EXCELLENT!!! Had great service, wait staff was very attentive and helpful with food selection.
Valentine’s Day, it was okay, waiter was nice , food was just okay. It’s a casual place, the name made me think it was more fancy.
The food is always unbelievable and the wait staff is on point. Never tire of going there.
This place was SO GOOD. We were the only people in the restaurant so that was a little sad but it was Super Bowl Sunday so maybe that was why. Service was good. Food was AWESOME. Time to get the food tho was much longer than ideal so I would recommend this more for leisure dining than to someone who is in a hurry. I would definitely go again though.
Best chicken piccata ever!
It was our first time but really good food and service. This place was highly recommended by one of my friends and I am glad we tried it. Good wine selection and quality food.
Staff was super friendly and service was great
Great Food! Will be back.
nice little neighborhood eatery. far from high priced, top end food, but very edible and affordable. we go there every month
Food, service and ambience was perfect as always. Thank you for staying open 🙏🏼🥰‼️❤️
I’m so very grateful to live near this Italian restaurant. They have a great selection of entrees and wines. I love their pesto capellini, Tuscan flatbread, and bruschetta. The pasta tastes fresh too - having a pasta maker myself, I love fresh pasta.
The best Italian food in Brea. And craft beer too!
Great service, delicious food, plenty of menu choices, and a with a nice atmosphere. What else do you need??
Love to eat indoors. Great food. Great wine.
A good find. Excellent food. You won't be disappointed!
