Fabulous food & service was top notch. We really love their pastas & pizzas. The chocolate torte is one of my favorite desserts in OKC! Highly recommend for a date night or family meal.

Everything was lovely. We had a reward and there was a problem, but they took care of it. My only issue was the seating. I realize that the regulations specify 6 ft apart, but that’s just not adequate distance between tables/humans when science shows that sustained conversation produces enough turbulent air that viral particles will travel further. Next time we will sit outside.

The meal was outstanding again. I would definitely get the cinnamon bread pudding if it is available. Also, our server was Rachel and she made some recommendations that made our meal even better.

Dinner was great. Food was delicious. Felt rushed by the staff and management. We finished dinner and were still catching up over coffee. The restaurant was busy and we weren’t as aware of that as we should have been. Admittedly we should’ve moved a bit faster. But fault was prolly on both sides. Us and restaurant. Anyway...nice place. Great food.

The food was great. I had the lunch size pepperoni pizza with a side salad. Don't let the anchovy vinaigrette scare you off. I don't like anchovies' and it was awesome. Overall just good food. The greens for the salad are very fresh and the pizza tastes very good.

The service was horrible. I ended up not even getting to eat my food because it took so long to get it cooked. I had them just put it in a box so I could take it home. The waitress didn’t take our drink orders, we didn’t have plates for appetizers, we didn’t have silverware for everyone, she poured the can of beer straight into the cup to the point it was way to foamy to drink. The music was so loud I couldn’t hear the waiters or my friends. The restaurant was not even busy and there were a bunch of employees there. There is no excuse for this poor quality of service. I’m very disappointed and will never go back.

Needs sound consultant. U can hear every conversation. Waitress excellent, but food average. Way overpriced. Was never in our rotation, and we confirmed reason. Halibut wasn't bad, but no sauce and just average, especially for $35. Sparrow much better.

Food was very good. Wine was excellent. I was disappointed that the appetizer was brought out with the meal. Restaurant had three people at the bar, a couple at a table and me. It was not closing time. The cauliflower appetizer had many layers of flavor to it and I would have enjoyed it more with my glass of Prosecco. But I put it aside to eat the pasta while it was hot. Unfortunate but I didn’t complain. I was hungry, food was good. Venetian blend was delicious.

It was obvious that all who work there are eager to please and committed to a fine experience. However, they had, on this occasion, a very poor performance from the kitchen.
Party of three, all with different t dishes, roundly criticized the fare.
One Dessert was ghastly , the Cinammon roll bread pudding was good.
The appetizers could have been acceptable had there been more than six squid rings in the calamari
The squid with potatoes and beans was an adventure but not one to repeat
Main courses were over cooked and less than appealing. Why must ciopinno contain enough hot sauce to blister the lips?
Given previous ratings, which drew me to Osterio’s, for a first time experience were strong.
My first hand experience was not.
I suspect I caught them on an off night, the staff and Mgmt presented a far more attractive sense than the food.

Great service by Tristan. The restaurant was immaculate & set up very well for social distracting. The only bummer was it looks like the lunch menu has changed so my two favorite sandwiches aren’t on the menu any longer, however, the vegetable calzone & lobster Mac were both fantastic. I really love Osteria and would recommend to all of our friends.

Picked this place for my graduation celebration based on recommendations that they were accommodating with vegan diets. Even made a note about it in my reservation. The server was not very helpful or knowledgeable. Was served a bowl full of olive oil and some noodles with a few vegetables as the alternative to a plain salad which was the only other recommendation our server gave. I was highly disappointed to say the least.

We now have a new favorite spot for date night! The setting, the pacing, the quality was exactly what we needed! Our server was an absolute delight and made excellent recommendations! It almost felt like we were at a dear friend’s home being treated like the most cherished guest! We will definitely be back and recommend this spot to all our friends!

The aesthetics was different and pleasing. The unique menu made this a fun spot. The mixed cocktails were on the weak side. The lobster was overcooked. This actually surprised me the most considering the hype this eatery had. The meal itself was delicious other than the tough lobster. The appetizer was amazing. I would eventually try this place again, but maybe order something different.

As usual, a great meal at Osteria. I absolutely love the Roasted Cauliflower salad and the mushroom pizza. Of course, we also shared a pasta, the bolognese, which we also enjoyed. The restaurant is nice to split dishes so that two people can try multiple items. I also have to commend Osteria on their wine list. They have some wonderful Italian wines at multiple price points.

I was very impressed with the Covid precautions Osteria has taken! The servers were masked, tables were distanced from each other, and the food was wonderful! If you haven't had the Potato Jackets, they're the epitome of crunchy, comfort food! We had wonderful service as well! Highly recommend!
