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.

    Dining on the patio this late summer evening was delightful. We were pressed for time due to theater tickets and our waiter could not have been more understanding. We enjoyed delicious small plates and a glass of wine chosen from a varied menu. Calamari was tender, melon and prosciutto with burrata was art on a plate. Had we more time we could have spent hours happily.

    Scallops app was great. Fish overcooked but tasty. Service was terrible. Paying $200 for a meal for 2 I’d expect much more and attentive service. Took an hour for food to be served and we were never asked to order additional drinks while we waited.

    The food was absolutely delicious. It was the kind of meal that you looked forward to every bite and when it was over wished you had more. You savored the taste and realized the time and expertise that went into making your dish.

    Hands down this place has the best Italian food in Utah that I have experienced. I do think they could step up the ambiance a bit, not that it’s bad, but doesn’t match how good the food is. The service is always good and friendly, but they always seem rushed and overworked. Probably because they are always busy because the food is so good. I will always come back and tell people to go there, but it would be good to see them adress these two small points to be the best restaurant in SLC / Utah

    We had the lasagne verse, tortufo, and the duck. The homemade ricotta served with the bread along with fresh tomatoes was a nice touch. All the dishes were delicious but we were a touch surprised that the portions were on the small side…which gave us plenty of room for the great desserts great wine list and reasonable prices.

    Another great visit. Food is excellent. Service was slower than usual but I guess it is that way virtually everywhere. Biggest issue was the flys. Lots and lots of flys. We were outside but still more than I have experienced at other outside venues.

    We had a great anniversary dinner at Osteria Amore. The service was spot on and everything was cooked to perfection. The staff knew it was our anniversary thanks to me noting that when I made the reservation via OpenTable and they treated to an unexpected desert. A+ It was a little bit loud but that mostly cleared up once a particular party of loud talkers left.

    This was our favorite restaurant for the last couple of years but the last few visits have gotten progressively worse. The prices have gone up while the food and service have gone down. Our server was irritated that we complained about the food, the flies were terrible and the meal wasn't up to standard. They do need to do something about the flies!

    It was fine. Pros: Drinks were good Service was great Cons: The flies! My husbands gnocchi was watery and a little chef boyardee like. It had clumps of cheese? Pasta bowl was so dry and hard it was inedible $32 for 5 capellaci The pizza we had had SO MUCH sauce the dough couldn’t support it and just flopped over, causing everything to slide right off. Again had clumps of cheese? The cost. I get it everything’s more expensive now. But $130 (with tip) for two drinks, pizza for an app, and two entrées which weren’t that great? Idk. Hit Valters for a few dollars more.

    I waited 15 minutes for someone to bring water to the table outside it was 92 degrees. The waiter Andi never made eye contact until he came to the table. We had a basic Gazpacho soup and basic salads. I glass of wine s piece. The bill was &96.00. The food was unimpressive for the money and the service was poor.
