Love their food and atmosphere! We went for a later dinner (9:00) and it was the perfect setting. We each got a salad and split an entree and dessert and had the perfect amount of food. The mushroom truffle gnocchi is the best pasta dish I’ve ever eaten!

Phenomenal food. It was definitely pricey, but it felt very made from scratch. Everything we had was outstanding, and we will definitely go back to try more.

We dined at Osteria on Tuesday, July 9th. The service and food were excellent; however, it seemed as though the air conditioner was not on. It's possible that the unit couldn't keep up with our Oklahoma heat, but the restroom area was nice and cool. Several people in the restaurant were fanning themselves, and our drinks warmed quickly.

Good Italian food. Ordered an app, salad, gnocchi, and a pizza for our little family of 3 to share everything. Every dish bursting with flavor. The pizza felt very authentic Italian (vs Americanized versions of pizza). The mushroom gnocchi was rich, flavorful. I enjoyed everything we had.
It’s a relatively small restaurant, I think, so I get a cozy vibe when we go there. It’s not too loud in my opinion.
They don’t have a dedicated kids menu, but that wasn’t a problem for us since our kid luckily eats everything we eat without issues.

Our server was very friendly but pretty busy and did not offer us grated parmesan. Didn't know that was an option until I saw another table getting it. Minor I know but should have been offered. It was a little noisy but not terribly bad. Pizza was very good and Carbonara in a Jar was excellent. Fettucinni Bolognese was decent but won't order again. I'll be back.

We loved our food as usual. I had the gnocchi with wild mushrooms and my husband had the carbonara in a jar with meatballs. Tried the house salad this time and loved it too!! Can’t wait to come back.

It was just ok. I feel like the drinks were crazy overpriced and not a lot of single glass offerings. We spent way more than expected for a good, not excellent experience.

Our waitress was marvelous. So sweet, and informative about menu items. Several dishes sounded very good but were lacking veggies or just something with color to brighten up the dish. Overall it was good and we will probably try again.

Unfortunately inconsistent. This was our third time to try Osteria. Our first and third experience resulted in very bland food that needed salt for every dish. The second time we tried Osteria everything was delightful and flavorful. I thought they had worked out the kinks!! But sadly, that was not the case. Notably, the ambience and service are top notch. They have the potential to be great but such culinary inconsistencies make the price point too much to risk.

We arrived early for our dinner reservation and were seated, no problem. It was the happy hour/afternoon menu —we enjoyed the sausage pizza and mushroom pizza, as well as the poached pear salad. The pizza was traditional Italian—thin crust and just the right amount of quality ingredients. Delicious!! I had the seasonal rum cocktail (with tobacco butters and orange slice)—perfection! We will definitely be back to enjoy the full dinner menu.

Osteria is a very small restaurant in the corner of Nichols Hills Plaza. I had reservations, yet we were put next to the kitchen so it was quite noisy. The food was quite good, as were our specialty drinks from the bar. The gelato was disappointing and not worth the expense. Our service was great, but the noise level made it difficult to have a personal conversation.

The food was good but the portions were quite big and a little pricey. We had brunch so I can’t speak for their lunch or dinner menu. Our waiter didn’t specify when we asked for a side of bacon that they had two options. They brought the kiddos regular bacon at $3 a side. Not that bad. They brought the adults prok belly bacon that we later learned was $10 for each side...so $40 in bacon later we were a little shocked at our ticket. We would’ve been happy with the cheaper bacon!

We were seated at 7pm. The waitress made a recommendation for an appetizer that was a tray with prosciutto, cheese and puff pastries. It was all virtually tasteless. Absolutely no flavor. Then we ordered the pasta in the jar to split. It was actually good however there was no bread served with dinner. We’ve never been to an Italian restaurant that didn’t have bread. When we requested it we were told it would take 10 minutes and then We got basic pizza crust was some balsamic drizzle on it. Not good. I also heard from a friend that the gnocchi is not good at all. When she asked why it tasted different than the gnocchi she has tasted all over the world, she was told because “we don’t use eggs”. Why? If you are deciding for us that we shouldn’t be eating bread and eggs then don’t open an Italian restaurant. It’s a unique restaurant in a great location but if the menu doesn’t change I predict it won’t last.

Osteria is a “go to” place to have a business lunch if you want good food and an acceptable noise level.
