Italian

Giorgios Bakatsias' inspiration behind his newest concept, Osteria Georgi, stems from a deep appreciation for his dear friend- the late, great George Tarantini, an Italian native and beloved soccer coach for NC state University, well-known for his love and respect for hospitality.

Osteria reflects the passion behind Italian cuisine and culture-
a daily celebration of life while gathering around a shared table, of enjoying the beauty in simply prepared hand-made pasta, locally sourced ingredients and vibrant flavors, in having gratitude for the local farmers, fisherman, and artisans from which it all came, and always- a love for great company.

    I started with a tricolor salad, one of my favorites from Italy. I was surprised to see radicchio and romaine. In my experience it has always been endive, arugula and radicchio. And the dressing is usually a delicate vinaigrette. And some shaved Parmesan on top. The restaurant is very pleasant and the staff are great, but they are missing the opportunity to have a wonderful Italian restaurant. I had the oyster appetizer for my main course. I have never been served oysters without an oyster fork which they did not have. They are available on Amazon and can be there tomorrow. I would love to see this restaurant be great. It just takes a little effort.

    Me giving the service a 2 star rating is nothing against our server that we had. This is based solely on the 3 hostess at the front. As soon as we walked in it felt uncomfortable, they weren’t welcoming. No eye contact even after saying we had a reservation. I even said thank you after the one hostess had to sit us down and nothing from the other 2. I don’t expect a overly bubbly experience but just the basic courtesy of saying hello thank you and you’re welcome. Hopefully they’ll learn from this.

    We had been looking forward to dining and both of us were pretty disappointed with the experience. We had a dinner reservation and a busy bartender was our waitperson, along with several other tables near us. We had to ask (a second time) for items on several occasions. She was obviously stretched too thin and didn’t have the knowledge to answer menu & diet-related questions. I know it’s tough to find restaurant workers and I normally give them plenty of grace, but our experience was really not good. The atmosphere/decor of the restaurant is wonderful, except that is was way too cold—even with a sweater I luckily had in my vehicle. We will give them another chance, but will likely stick with cocktails and possibly as appetizer.

    Service is always wonderful. Aesthetically, it is my favorite restaurant. The ambience is top-notch. It just makes you feel good and glamorous. The food is generally good, but we get the mixed salad every time and it’s always too salty. Last night, we specifically requested no salt and it came out exactly as before– too Salty. Also, the risotto was underwhelming. If we had been blindfolded, it could have been a can of SpaghettiOs. The beet salad was wonderful, mixed salad is my favorite in town if only they would Hold back on the salt and the chicken was perfectly cooked. I would love for them to bring back the oysters. I could go there just for oysters and bread and salad. The bean spread they serve with the bread is excellent And a great alternative to butter. I love this place and will go back but for the money, sometimes we feel a little underwhelmed. It is expensive. I had mussels and halibut last time. The halibut and the sauce was wonderful. The pasta is always excellent.

    I took myself out to eat here and was blown away on an unsuspecting Saturday night in Chapel Hill. Chef Dan Jackson and his team are highly talented. The food is delightful and the service was really great. Attractive atmosphere and just all around a great evening. I will have re-formed a pasta addition and will be going back, for sure.

    Fun night with out of town friends. Drinks, wine and food were all very good. Busy night apparently though because we were seated at our reservation time but server did not come to take drink orders for almost 20 minutes after we were seated. Love the space and the vibe and will be back again soon.

    Service was pretty strange. Our server was very stressed and on edge the entire night, which in turn made us feel a bit stressed. Lots of weird comments about other people and things happening at the restaurant and hurried slamming and picking up of dishes and utensils. Just a very odd experience.

    It is great, but pricey. Dining out in style has become quite expensive. For pasta that is not house-made, $24+ per dish that is a "primi" first course size with no protein in it is a bit ridiculous. The price reflects a high cost for noodles even for an entree/main course size. Restaurants in Italy don't even charge that much. Just saying.

    It was a perfect night to meet out of town friends on the patio. Jason did a great job juggling the needs of several tables. Everyone was very pleased with their apps, wine selections (enough available to please anyone), & entrees. We chose the best place we know for its convenient location and food. Whew! We’ll be back. We still want to try the house made pasta. Next time.

    Horrible service. Server must have been new or just not good at his job. Waited and waited for service. Had to wait almost 20 minutes for our first round of beverages. They were not busy, restaurant only half full. I had to speak to the manager twice bc our server was not the least bit attentive. He would look over at our table and totally ignore us. They were not understaffed at all., We will never return until they can get their act together.

    We had a lovely time! Due to the noise level (acoustics and pop music) inside, we asked that our party of six be moved to the patio. Fortunately, they and the weather could accommodate us! The food was delicious! Our server Mollie was well-versed on the menu, very friendly, and cheerful. Considering we had appetizers, entrees, dessert, coffee and a variety of drinks, the bill reasonable! Thank you for a fun evening en plein air!
