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.

Wonderful, authentic Italian food!! The service and food were great. The Tiramisu is a MUST!! Would highly recommend this place.
Some of the best Italian food in SLC. Have nothing but great things to say about this place.
Fabulous Eduardo the owner gave us great service and food. We love this place
The team at Osteria never fails to make it a memorable experience. There's not one thing I would change.
Food was amazing!!!! Great service and loved all the choices.
Absolutely wonderful dinner, as usual. This is our favorite Italian restaurant in Salt Lake City. Thanks to the great staff!
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.
All 5 of us were very satisfied with our dishes. Great quality without breaking the bank. We will definitely return.
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.
Great time and food. Nico is the best

What a great evening. Eduardo and Seth treated us like family. The outside seating was just perfect.
Please come and have a good time with Amore.
Always great glad your open.
Everything about it was amazing! Beautiful patio seating, incredible Italian food, amazing staff! Couldn’t have asked for better! Can’t wait to go back!
Loved the fried artichokes. Good wine list. My ribeye was seasoned well.
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.
Delicious food and very friendly service. Wonderful experience.
Eduardo always takes good care of us. Before we go to Italy Eduardo asked us back so we can take notes of where to go, what to eat and who to visit.
Great location, incredible food/wine selection and kind service! Our new favorite!
My son took me there for Mother’s Day the service was absolutely amazing the food tasted More than a five star restaurant it was a beautiful day beautiful food beautiful service and I will be going back there at least once a month thank you for making my Mother’s Day so special
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.
Excellent dinner with exceptional service. Was a bit disappointed with $12 corkage fee though. We will return for another great meal and al fresco dining on their patio.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Osteria Amore. Great ambience; the food was incredible. We'll definitely be back.
Great to be back. Seth did a great job and nice to see Nico
