  • Neighborhood gem
  • Good for special occasions
  • Great for fine wines
Inspired by our Northern Italian roots, we bring the traditionally casual, regional osteria into an urban setting. And shake it up a bit.
Unfussy local food & wine hosted in a warm neighbourhood eatery. Strictly seasonal produce, championing regional growers & artisans.

    Terrific experience. From start to finish we felt so looked after by the chef/owner Nick that was working as a waiter. Spectacular night, great vibe and food was delicious. Great local restaurant

    While the food was tasty and the venue comfortable, the price per portion, attentiveness of staff and overall impression of the evening was moderate at best. My partners pasta was under aldente which was a shame as the sauce was delicious. My riso again was tasty, but only one piece of spanner crab in what was quite a tiny portion for the $38 price tag. Definitely not awful, but certainly didn't compel me to want to return.

    Had a fabulous dinner at Oster. The food was absolutely delicious tried the calamari pasta for an entree followed by shared main courses of lamb and fish of the day-all fabulous. The restaurant is byo Tues-Thursday and they currently have very reasonably priced 2 and 3 course specials. Will be back next week to try some of their other courses.

    The experience was truly delightful! From the impeccable food and wine selection to the inviting atmosphere, it was everything one could ask for. The chef's evident passion for good food was palpable, and the supportive team made the whole experience come together seamlessly. Just lovely!

    We had a last minute lunch at Ostēr. We choose the 3 course lunch menu, $65 with a glass of wine. Great deal for the price, perfect for business lunch or for leisure dining. The chef owner looked after us, will definitely go back. Thanks
