Come Try Our Brunch Saturdays & Sundays 9:00AM - 1:00PM

We are proud to share our journey which is Garbatella Osteria Bar. As the first US-based concept from husband-wife duo Saul Plata and his wife Carelma Rodriguez, as well as his partner Antonio and Diana, Garbatella Osteria in Otay Ranch, is the coming together of cultures, of travels, and of a lifetime of experiences. The Italian menu is crafted to reflect the authentic Italian flavors of Antonio’s childhood with recipes he has loved and cooked for decades.

We are thrilled to call Chula Vista home and root ourselves here. Again, benvenuti, welcome, to Garbatella Osteria Italian restaurant.

    Nice place & staff, food is very good, portions could be a little better for the price. Service has room for improvement specially in peak times.

    Utensils smelled Aweful - like dirty kitchen rag and were dirty looking … all it takes is a better dish washer , or better soap and someone to do quality check for water spots- and if any water spots then polish it off & smell utensils please - at first I thought it was the spinach salad & stopped eating it and then realized it was the fork as the smell was stronger when I brought it closer to me … IDK but kitchen cleanliness is at question and I am not returning. Spinach strawberry salad presentation was POOR !!! Next time I suggest mixing the salad w dressing then transfer salad to plate and garnish it with the strawberries and cranberries and everything else that goes on salad for plate to look more appealing vs covering all toppings with spinach and sprinkling cheese to one side of salad. Salad was not even worthy of a picture though I should have taken one but I was so disgusted by the smell of the fork that I Did not think to take a picture of salad. Seafood Linguine was okay not bad And my friend said her lobster ravioli was good. We also ordered a pizza but dough somewhat tasted like dirty kitchen rag—- makes me think that the kitchen counter were this pizza was prepared must of been dirty or maybe it was wiped down w a dirty rag - idk but I am grossed out and disappointed because it was me who suggested this place based on my last visit - quality here seems inconsistent:( . Or waiter was very nice and our pasta was hot .

    Restaurant was lovely and the staff were very attentive. The food was good and presented well, but nothing outstanding. I would dine here again, the experience was pleasant.

    Most of the food was ok, except the Lasagna. The flavor was fine, but the food was cold. If an Italian Restaurant kitchen can’t make a servable lasagna, then the rating should be fair. I found the whole place underwhelming and over priced.
