Italian
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.

    Food was amazing as always. However, this time the service was far from adequate. Our waitress literally never asked us how our food was, even after we were well past finished eating and hoping she would come around so we could request to-go boxes. Although thoroughly pleasant and polite, she was basically non-existent.

    Amazing pasta. Heavy but amazing. I would next time do just one pats dish and protein dish. The signature pasta was fantastic and so was the lasagna. We will be back.

    It was for our wedding anniversary It took 40 minutes to get seated for our 630 reservation. Clearly it was overpacked and the staff wasn’t prepared. It’s not a romantic atmosphere like we expected.

    I mostly come here for work meals because it’s a bit pricey for me personally but the food and the service is so impressive. It makes for a nice slow and long meal that caters to great conversation and enjoyment of the people you are with as much as the delicious food offerings. (And the corkage fee is lower than most restaurants in town) the gelato is mind-blowing.

    While the food quality has remained fabulous, service has been VERY hit and miss in our past 3 visits now (over the past 6-7 weeks)... One time really good - but twice pretty "meh"... Last night, we were there with guests from out of town... The drink service was painfully slow - and the waitress, while very kind and personable, first "forgot" my entry... And then my dessert... I don't know if this was a "staff shortage" last night or what... If she was being asked to juggle too many tables or what, as my back was the rest of the dining area... We know that finding enough good help has been a major challenge for many restaurants as of late... Whatever the case, we love you guys and your food... And will be back... But the erratic service really hurts the "experience"... We hope you are able to find some solutions soon...

    From food order to food at table was an hour. For such a small restaurant this was disappointing. Food was excellent. Menu on open table is different than restaurant menu. I was looking forward to a specific dish- chicken picatta. It was not on the menu.
