Osteria Amore came to life because we believe in the power of food to change your day, or in our case, change your life.

Owner Eduardo Daja has been working in restaurants since he was a teenager growing up in Italy, and his time in culinary school only strengthened his passion for food. After culinary school, Ed stayed in Bologna to work at a family-owned restaurant. He moved to Utah eight years ago, and found himself missing his first love, food. For the past three years, Ed has been managing an Italian restaurant while also maintaining a career in tech and finally made the life-changing decision to open his own restaurant.

That big decision was made possible for Ed when he met Marco Cuttaia, Osteria Amore’s executive chef and partner. Ed’s training in Bologna, considered the food capital of Italy, and Marco’s upbringing in Palermo, known for its incredible street food, bridge northern and southern Italian culinary tradition in a way that’s never been done in Salt Lake City.

Having spent years in Italy, I am spoiled. Accordingly, it is exciting to find a place in Salt Lake City where the kitchen turns out familiar flavors and not merely alleged Italian dishes. My wife and I returned to Osteria Amore Friday and enjoyed their authentic food once again.

This was our third time dining at Osteria Amore on the patio and it was just as pleasant as the first time several weeks ago. The servers are so polite and attentive. The food was excellent and is consistent. I branched out of my salmon kick and had the Lasagna Verde. It was excellent and enough to have leftovers for the next day which was just as good then. We absolutely love this place.

Avoid this place at all costs. The a/c doesn't work, and I was initially asked to wait 20-30 minutes for a table even though I had an Open Table reservation. After waiting 50 minutes for a dish of pasta, I gave up. I was kindly offered a box to take it home, and i did since the place was quite warm.

Eduardo and the staff once again did an excellent job both with the service, food and hospitality. We were with another couple for whom this was the first night out at a restaurant in over 3 months. They were thrilled to have spent the occasion on the front patio at Osteria and plan, along with us, to come back many more times.

Thanks again Eduardo and everyone for a memorable evening.

I loved to atmosphere, service was great. The area we sat in was extremely loud and everything echoed, which was a little frustrating. The food was great, however, I ordered one of the specials, which was fish. The fish was brought out cooked with the head, fins, bones, etc. Although delicious, I did not enjoy picking fish bones out of every bite I took and sometimes scales. It was hard to eat. Great presentation, but it could have been simplified to enjoy eating it.

Wonderful dining here. Upon being seated by server Helios, we were served flavorful crostini with fresh cherry tomatoes, bursts and olive oil. My partner tried the gnocchi bologna de and the gnocchi were light as pillows in their flavorful sauce. We both loved it. I tried the veal scalloping in mushroom cream sauce. The veal was pounded out to perfection, lightly dusted in seasoned flour and sautèed golden. The sauce was unctuous without being heavy and various mushroom varieties added a nice chew and umami. We’ve yet to try dessert here because we just can’t resist the main menu.
Service is attentive but quite...leisurely.
