Outstanding legitimate quality Italian cuisine with great client experience focused service and great bar beverage options at a price that is quite pleasantly surprisingly lower than one would usually expect for this level of quality. Well done!

The food and service were good. The only thing I didn't like was that the wine had no flavor. I ordered a pinot grigio but it had no taste. I should have sent it back!!! The appetizer and main meals were very good. We shared the tiramisu for dessert and it didn't have much flavor.....very disappointing. The service was good

We split calamari as an appetizer - lightly breaded with a nice tomato sauce. Our main courses consisted of spaghetti and meat balls (grandma’s recipe) and gnocchi in a tomato sauce with some extra scallops. Both mains were great. We split a tiramisu for dessert which was a nice finish to our meal. Our server, one of the owners, was helpful and attentive.

Owner is a gracious greeter and justifiably proud of his restaurant. An interesting menu that is prepared meticulously and is abundantly flavourful. The restaurant is elegant and provides the ambience that makes for both comfort and indulgence. A nice touch is the delicious, complimentary bruschetta. And surprisingly reasonable pricing for this dining experience. And there are happy hours and specials M-TH
Would highly recommend Osteria.

I was so excited to try Osteria on a Saturday night date with my boyfriend . The meal was extremely slow ( took 2.5 hours for a preset menu ). Each one of my dishes had some mistake ( instead of salmon I had a steak brought to me ... ). The entire meal my boyfriend was eating while i wasn’t which made the dining experience not as enjoyable . The waiter was very accommodating in constantly apologizing & bringing complimentary wine .Although , I’m surprised the management didn’t do more as there was mixups for 3 out of 3 courses that I had .

These two new owners have changed Osteria!! It is a friendly. I felt like I was in my own home. It was like walking into a small restaurant on a quiet street in Rome: they serve simple Italian dishes and leave you to chat and visit. We will go back to this neighbourhood spot!

We had a very pleasant experience. Food was delicious--the best calamari I've ever had as an appetizer and probably the best chicken parm I've ever had for dinner. Of course, we topped it off with tiramisu for dessert. Service was excellent.

This was my first experience with Osteria and I was impressed on all levels. The food was fantastic and the service was so personal that I felt like I was part of the family. Parking is an issue here, however, the staff can hold a couple of stalls at a time for their customers. Just ask them when making a reservation.

Quite disappointed with meal, garlic seemed to be the spice of choice , everything was seasoned with excessive garlic, meat , vegetables and salad. The meat tasted like it was cooked in fat, the vegetables were over cooked.

Excellent service. Great value for the money. A group of 10 and all had positive comments on their meal. Ambience was quaint and fairly quiet. Wine menu is a little limited but both are choices were very good. Also excellent that you can order all them by the glass. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to eat in Kensington.
