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.

    Amazing ambiance and vibe. Service was good even though it was quite busy by the time our first plate arrived. The food was delicious and a great value/price point.

    Great night made even better by Osteria Amore! Service was outstanding….the best I’ve had in SLC for a long time. Food was delicious and obviously prepared by people who care about flavor and presentation. Thank you Osteria Amore! Can’t wait to come back!

    We absolutely love it here. We go every week. Hands down, the best Italian food in SLC. Authentic. They staff are lovely, the food is amazing. Make a ressie in the winter, it’s small. Summertime they have a cute patio. But still make a reservation!

    We have been here multiple times with the best experience, but this time we were sat at a tiny 2 person table next to the entry. Very cold and loud and we had no space for our plates. The table we sat at shouldn't even be an option for seating. Other than that the experience was perfect.

    We usually dine at Osteria Amore before the play at Pioneer Theater company. Very convenient and the food and service are outstanding. My wife and I are on a temporary low carb diet so I wondered if the could add a protein to the Mediterranean salad. They were very accommodating so I had a Mediterranean salad with octopus. It was great. My only complaint is that I thought the octopus was a little overpriced at $24 but I may be out of touch with seafood prices.

    Wonderful! I was searching for a new place to bring our son and his girlfriend to after picking them up at the airport. Our usual go to is The Copper Onion but I wanted to try something else. Absolutely loved everything! We had Tartare and calamari and eggplant Allois and they were all delicious. Entrees were the ribeye, sou vide chicken, bucatini and the Osteria Amore and each was equally wonderful! Couldn’t even think about dessert but enjoyed great coffee and espresso.

    The food was PHENOMENAL!!! Everything we tried were absolutely top notch delicious! We are excited to come back and try other pizzas and pastas! The food was definitely worth the price, we were very impressed! Downside: we got the wrong pizza order twice despite the waiter checked with us after the initial order. So definitely check to see if your pizza was right or not before touching it.

    I ordered the most delicious pizza I've ever tasted at this place. It was this perfect blend of ingredients that was a party in my mouth. I am now obsessed and will be going back. I loved this places ambiance and our server's perfect Italian annunciation. Order the Marco pizza- you will love it

    One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Our excellent waiter, Ed, told us that everyone in the kitchen was from Italy and spoke not a word of English. It showed. From the appetizers to the entrees to the wines to the desserts, everything was Italian. Every pasta was made in-house. Absolutely fabulous. If in SLC, Osteria Amore is a must. And ask for Ed. 😁

    They forgot about our food and we didn't have time to eat it before catching a show at Kingsbury hall. Really disappointed in the service and lack of attention. The waiter still charged us a full $90 for two even though when our food finally came out we had time to take 2 bites and put it in boxes to go. The food is good but extremely overpriced. Will not visit again.

    Last Saturday, I've had such a perfect dinner at the Osteria Amore. I'm a person who lived in France about 12 years, so I didn't like American restaurants, but I was able to have such a wonderful dinner in 10years. Perfect foods, perfect service, perfect ambience!!!! I live 3hours away from Salt Lake City but I and my family will come to the Osteria Amore as often as possible. I am so happy to know this restaurant. Thank you so much for making us a fabulous time.

    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.
