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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

I was somewhat surprised at first as I remembered a much bigger place! They have downsized to a quarter of the space, but the service and food was perfect. Four of us did the chefs selection and we were not disappointed. We would surely go back.
