About

We love everything about restaurants. In particular, we love Italian. We love the food, the wine, the diversity, and the pride that Italians take in hosting a memorable experience. We’ve spent our lives developing restaurants. From a simple deli or a laidback pub to award-winning fine dining, we have worked hard and are proud to present Autostrada Osteria. It’s a place with a simple philosophy. Inspired by the casual osterie of Italy, the focus is on a simple menu where quality ingredients shine, regional wines that represent a place, and a room filled with warmth and bustle. We hope you enjoy what we’ve poured our hearts into. Dustin & Lucais

The food is very good and well presented. Authentic Italian as well as some innovative recipes using seasonal local ingredients - awesome! The restaurant is small so understandably they are trying to keep tables turning over. After less than an hour and a quarter they offered us the bill after our second course...we had to ask for the dessert menu. I would prefer to pay a bit more to enjoy the meal without the rushing.

The pasta is amazing! The meatballs were the best I’ve ever had. My only complaint is that the table for two is small and because the chairs are rounded, there’s nowhere for your handbag. A couple of hooks under the table would do the trick. Otherwise an excellent experience, we’ll be back soon for sure.

Cute and lovely place for hanging out with friends. Nice atomosphere and excellent service.
The risotto was pretty general, however the rottolo was amazing, while the anchovy was impressive!

Only thing i have to mention is that i made the reservation from open table, comfirmed my reservation through text message. But, i was not on the list when i arrived. not sure what was going on, forturnately there was a table avalible by that time.

Generally happy experience, i will go back again.

The noise level was very unsettling. It seemed to be one of those restaurants that have a design flaw in that too many hard surfaces and nothing to absorb sound. There are very few tables so the noise level was not coming from other patrons. We couldn't even hear what our waitress was saying. Also, waiting outside for our table, we could see this very small and intimate space and we were so looking forward to our dinner. After we were seated we commented that the music did not seem to match our expectations for the space. All four in our party have travelled to Italy many times (and one person in our party was Italian) and it did not transport us there even though we agreed the food did.

Is a small restaurant but the ambiance was pleasant. Had an attentive waitress and the service was good which made the evening enjoyable. The cappacio appetizer was quite good and the expressos dessert was pleasantly not too sweet. There pasta dishes that our party order was only ok. The flavours were ordinary and not too memorable. Some of the dishes were on the smaller side so if you are hungry, it may not be enough for you. I would still recommend it to my friends based on the service and decent ambiance but would also inform them the menu is a mix and not to expect too much.

Great little restaurant! The service was amazing and food so good. We ordered the burrata, Cesar salad and meatballs to start. Shared one pasta and we couldn’t even finish that! Can’t wait to go back!

Friends’ 37th anniversary. Lucy was a wonderful, personable server who accommodated my “non-dairy “ diet & my friend’s gluten -free restrictions. The food was superb!!! My partner said it was the best Italian food he has eaten outside of Italy.

This was our first time at Autostrata recommended by friends who have been to the other location. Wow we loved the experience from beginning to end. The restaurant is cute and quaint. We arrived earlier than our reservation but the hostess had no issues in accommodating us. She really made our night- pleasant with a great smile, articulate in describing the food and wine. Both the food and wine were delicious. It was such an amazing experience that we’ll be returning again and again

Wine select very good- appetizers, anchovies on toast excellent, Caesar salad, excellent, specialty of evening salad w roasted radish slices - very good.
Mains 3 out of 4 disappointing-spaghetti bolognese was bland; this is a dish would be nice to have a ladle of marina sauce added. Rigatoni w eggplant had good flavour but eggplant was barely detected. The evening pasta special, how about potato ravioli tasted 100% potato not a hint of halibut, but the sauce was delicious. 4th main, fennel sausage ... was excellent. The staff was kind enough to hold our table as we were not able to be there on time but we were short on time to have dessert. Next time will make sure no one has previous obligations. Our service was excellent

Our meal at Autostrada was very pleasant overall, with just a few details being a bit off. First and foremost, the service was outstanding. All serving staff that we interacted with were very polite, attentive, and knowledgable, and provided excellent recommendations. We had a few appetizers, which were mostly very good (the meatballs were very good, but not as good as Via Tevere which makes the best I've had in town). The pasta was also exceptional, as was the wine which was recommended by our server.

Now for the not-so-good. The music playlist left a lot to be desired, with no discernible theme, and some odd choices, but nothing truly offensive. My date had a classic Negroni, which was a bit underwhelming, but not bad. Finally the desert we had—the Torta Caprese—was fine, but not particularly flavourful.

All in all, go for the pasta, the wine, and the service. Maybe skip the dessert, or try something that we didn't.

Great food and lovely server. Only negative is being told immediately on being seated by the manager (?) that we had a strict 90 minutes to have our table. Quite a turnoff and definitely did not make us feel welcome or relaxed.

Food was good, overall experience okay. The server spoke in a soft enough voice that when we were told what the specials were we couldn't hear what they were. It could've been the noise level but I didn't think it was that loud.

The service is wonderful, which is always so important. We had the cacio e pepe and it was just OK. The space is cozy, and a tad loud. I think I would return in order to try another dish and see if my review score would improve.
