Pizzeria
Once the doors open at L’Osteria, you’ll feel like you’re in a typical Italian osteria, where people get together to eat really well and enjoy the company of families, friends, couples, old and young. It is a lively atmosphere, and the delicious smell of authentic Italian cuisine lingers in the air. This is an open, welcoming place, where everyone can be themselves and feel at home. L’Osteria is famous for the best, best pizza and pasta d’amore. The sizeable pizza is larger than the plate. It is frequently ordered by two persons with different toppings on each half. And wait until you see the pasta! Additionally, we offer many other timeless classics of Italian cuisine, such as antipasti, salads, delicious dolci and a weekly menu featuring the season’s freshest ingredients and special pasta creations. By the way, Since 2015, our maccheroni, strozzapreti and tortelloni have been made in our own pasta factory in Nuremberg.

    the place is beautiful, the food is tasty, the staff are kind, but I think there should be a little more light and the music a little slower (we couldn't really hear what we were talking to each other)

    Food excellent, the best pizzas ever. Waitress service very good speedy service. Welcome greeting 1st time poor, 2nd visit we decided to leave, 3rd visit felt like it was a chore and table choice for half empty restaurant stuck behind pillar. Remember if the lady greeter walks off your supposed to follow! If the pizzas were not so amazing we would give it a miss. A smile and eye contact must be already included as part of the service charge.

    Wife's birthday and she wanted to go there. It was a lovely meal. Only annoying thing is the inclusion of a service charge like most places do now. I'd have rather given a tip but I'm against paying a service charge and a tip they are afterwords the same thing.

    The noise level of the music was far too loud. For this reason, I will not be returning to your restaurant. Music is meant to be background. You should not have to shout and continue to ask what someone says also when you can’t hear the staff too it’s not good. Beciase of the loud music other tables were shouting to be heard. So the experience for me is a no go. Food was nice. Strange thing to say, but pizzas were too big. Not complaining. Very nice . Be nice if you did sides like chips and side salads etc. Zizis for me next time. Ambience was such an off put.

    Table didn’t give us much room to sit around, it seemed to be crammed into the corner. Music was a little loud. Apart from that, food, drink and service was excellent, as it was for your Bristol restaurant

    The overall atmosphere is very noisy. Even having asked for a quiet table, the music was still too loud and we found ourselves raising our voices just to have a conversation. The food was fantastic and came out quickly, and we were offered a take-away bag which was great. The overall wait for service was very poor. Waiting for our plates to be taken away and then for the bill and the card machine was a mission in itself. The waitresses were polite but not very attentive however it was a busy Saturday night.

    We were in a corner and we were forgotten about. Waitress couldn’t hear what we order so the wrong pizza came and had no drink. It was very loud. We waited a long time for order too. Pizzas were good when they came.

    The food was really tasty, however, the service was a disgrace. Waitress forgot to place our order. Our starters were then forgotten and the main course arrived. Waitress said she’d bring the starters out to have with the main course, however these did not arrive until after we had finished the main course. When paying the bill we understandably chose not to pay the pre added service charge. The waitress said she’d have to talk to the manager about it. Then, rather than querying why we didn’t want to pay the service charge, the manager asked us to leave. The manger was extremely rude and no apology was offered.

    Great food just a shame our doughball starters took 40minutes to come out - seemed they were more focused on Just Eat and Deliveroo orders than a customer in the restaurant. Mains arrived shortly after and were great, initial wait ruined it.

    We booked a table for 4, and we waited at the bar as we were early. The bar man was extremely busy carrying out orders for the tables and ignored us. the manager had to get us a drink after waiting 15 minutes. We were then taken upstairs to our table, and after waiting another 10-15 minutes for someone to come over and take our order we had had enough and we walked out. The Manager said they had a staff issue, but you still took the booking.! Negative atmosphere, staff ignore you, lots of people waiting for food, people walking out, not great! will not be coming back.

    I thought the food was amazing however a couple of things let them down, firstly they didn’t read the notes left as this was a birthday meal and even reminding the night before they forgot to do anything which was a pain and also I asked for a doggy bag as couldn’t finish it all and that was also forgotten at the end of the night. Apart from that the staff where overall really nice and accommodating and the food was fantastic for the price point, perfect place to go on a date!

    The food was fantastic, but even though we'd reserved a table we had to wait for them to find a table for us. The music was so loud we had to shout across the table from each other to have a conversation and we were sat so close to the tables either side that we might as well have been talking to each other. The servers were also really unenthusiastic and made it look like we were an inconvenience for making them have to work. Quite an uncomfortable evening which was a shame because the food was fantastic.
