Osteria Chef's Table
Long time chefs Giovanni and Michele took over the management of the restaurant in Calgary's Kensington district, keeping the Osteria de Medici tradition and incorporating their own twist to create Osteria Chef's Table.
Our beautiful dining room features a classic Italian Style atmosphere, crisp linens and comfortable seating.
The new menu features a combination of classic Italian dishes along with daily specials created by the Chefs. Osteria Chef’s Table is dedicated to offering exceptional service and the freshest ingredients available.
Giovanni and Michele frequent city markets, local growers and farmers to bring you only the best of locally sourced ingredients.
Osteria Chef's Table is open for Lunch and Dinner and is available to host your next event.
Excellent authentic Italian fare. Owner is a young man who came from Italy 7 years ago and has made Calgary home.
Excellent service and great food.
Michele went out of his way to ensure that everything was perfect. Wonderful attention to the children in the party.
Kudos to the chef for a wonderful meal.
We will definitely return
Parking is awful . Had the Oslo bucco not the most tender. Spaghetti too much garlic.
Booked for more than able to attend but restaurant staff were not concerned about the last minute change. Attentive service... excellent food. On the house bruschetta and grappa at the conclusion of the meal
We LOVED it! Great staff, Delicious food, good wine, comfortable and cozy dinning! We will be back again!
Everything was just okay but at least we were able to make a reservation on a Saturday night. We were able to have a conversation with our friends which was the purpose of getting together.
Best place I’ve eaten at in a long time. The food and service was excellent.
Food and service were excellent! Will be returning!!
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!
Michael our waiter was 1st Class!! The food was very good and we have no complanits about anything.
Owner was very nice and attentive to every table. Food and portions were amazing!
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.
Had a great lunch on the Terrasse with excellent Food and Wine. The Service was excellent as well. I will go back there.
Wonderful the whole family enjoyed themselves immensely !
What a sweet, romantic dinner spot. Osteria is a longstanding fixture in Kensington with a well deserved reputation. It was an authentically Italian evening. The service was impeccable. We were treated so well, that I’m looking forward to coming back.
Fantastic service. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Our homey spot! where we feel welcomed, EVERY time! Highly recommend Osteria's Chef Table, for a cozy romantic meal, a business lunch where you can actually talk! or even a private event, where you will be treated like royalty!
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.
Amazing experience as usual!!
Wonderful service, fantastic food and a quiet atmosphere for good conversation.
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 .
The staff was very friendly,good food and quiet and warm atmosphere.
Fantastic in every sense of the word!!!
We had the Valentines set menu.... would have preferred Italian style food - it was very generic
It was fabulously tasty - the music was perfect and the waiter was outstanding
Outstanding.. Great food, great staff.. Clean and quite.. Free parking as well...
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!
Enjoyed a very good Sunday evening dining experience at Osteria. There are reserved parking spots at the restaurant - much appreciated on a cold night. Excellent atmosphere, food and service. We will return.
Traditional Italian done very well for a reasonable price. Gnocchi were excellent - like nana was in the kitchen
The location is perfect for preshow dinner If going to the Jubilee. Ask them for parking and they will save a space out front for you with their sandwich board. The food was delicious and the service was great.
Went with our kids for my wife's birthday this past Sunday. Couldn't have asked for better food or service. What a great place! We can't wait to come back again!
Great evening from arrival to departure. Went for dinner with friends before Sound of Music at the Jubilee. Food was delicious, ambience perfect and waiter made our evening out special. Will definitely return.
Blakely amazing you must go here and do the six course chef's tasting absolutely wonderful service was amazing and food even better.
The food, Chardonnay and service was outstanding! Highly recommend this restaurant!
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.
Outstanding dinner. Best olive oil I've ever had in my life.
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.
