The food here s just horrible. It is not the same as it used to be unfortunately.
The food is amazing as well as the staff & service
Most of the dishes were fantastic, really good! A few were not. I did not like the mushroom salad. The squid ink shrimp pasta was great!
Nice outdoor seating with heaters
Great food and service!
Great food. Menu descriptions are very brief so you need to assertively inquire about any food allergies, I learned the hard way.
This is my go to restaurant from day one. Has consistently quality food in a friendly atmosphere. Been eating there for over 30 years.
Excellent place for lunch in downtown Palo Alto. Good food, attentive service.
Had a nice dinner.
Bread is delicious. Service overall good but had to flag down our waitress a couple times.
I finally got up enough nerve to order something besides my favorite "Linguine Tutte Mare" that I find irresistible. My wife did order that and enjoyed it thoroughly but I ordered "Scappolini del Vitello" (veal scappolini with artichokes) this time and was very happy with the choice. We split a "Tiramisu" for desert and it was authentic. (We lived in Italy for a year.)
Osteria is more than just a restaurant; you feel like a dinner guest with dear friends! Waitstaff are genuinely friendly and engaging. Food is exceptional! Looking forward to a return visit soon.
We had lunch with a friend not seen in years who was visiting the US. The restaurant provided a great ambiance for this purpose with its comfortable and reasonably quiet setting on the street now closed to through traffic. The beef agnolotti, caprese salad, and bread with olive oil dip were delicious. The service was very friendly and attentive. All in all a very positive experience.
The food was amazing as always in the service was great
terrific place for a special meal. Attentive staff and good food!
Really good food and our waitress was so patient with us. Good dessert too. Had the chocolate hazelnut flan. Oh boy! That was a treat!
Reataurant out of 1st bottle of CA wine ordered — And we were told as we started 1st course. waiter suggested another which was $100 more — we chose another bottle in our price range. Ordered spinach salad — which never arrived. Waiter said he forgot.
My Veal was excellent!
The restaurant tables had no candles (electric are fine) and the outdoor eating area was totally dark. How could people eve n SEE the food they were eating!!!
And they had a few little lights, on the ground at the entrance way. None near the top of the overhand.
Thank you for your feedback. We are adjusting the lighting for Fall/Winter mode to allow for more sparkle of lights and large flaming heaters. We welcome your return!
Great food. Service attentive, wine girl perfect.
After many years since our last visit to Osteria, we decided to try it again. We were very pleased with the food and experience. Our meals were very good and pasta (papparadelle alla Bolognese and ravioli) done perfectly al dente. The wine list had a good selection of Italian reds as well as new world choices. We chose a quiet outdoor table in the parklet on a chilly night but the nearby heaters kept us warm. Service was excellent, attentive, and well paced, and prices were reasonable. Osteria is a very nice neighborhood restaurant worth trying; we will return sometime soon.
Good food, too-brisk service: too eager to clear the table...
Always a perfect experience. Food never disappoints, and the service is that of a well-established confident restaurant.
Food was very good with a large outdoor seating space. Service a bit uneven but the some staff was new so coming up to speed. It was also a busy night so challenging to keep up. A warm welcome from the host and the usual warm bread to start.
Outstanding food combined with great service made for a fun enjoyable evening.
If you want real Italian food choose Osteria.

Very sweet Italian place.
Thank you for the 5 star review. Love, Osteria Toscana
The food was amazing and somehow the service was even better! Felt like a family owned traditional Italian restaurant!
Appetizer and pastas are great, the desserts were just okay - we order the tiramisu and it was too sweet and nothing impressive
Great meal and amazing service!
Outstanding food and service. Great outdoor patio. Will definitely return

Great authentic Italian food and setting. Great place for everyday dining or special occasion. A classic!
Awesome destination, great service. Just go there, you will be happy.
Osteria is my neighborhood "Cheers". Have been there over 1,000 times and it never fails to please. Always get the same table and server. Food and ambience are wonderful.
I am treated like a loved family member. GO!!!
Wait. Did you say over 1,000 times? We are so thrilled to have you as a part of our Osteria family! From all of us, we look forward to seeing you soon!
Bruschetta, a very good Appetizer as a light Tapas meal, or for sharing. Polenta w/ Shitake Mushrooms excellent, but less convenient for sharing. Both Raviolis (Vegan Squash and Beef Short rib options) excellent!
Last night in Palo Alto. Warm and outside dining. Wonderful.
Awesome food in a good neigborhood. Attentive service.
Food and service were wonderful as always!! One of my favorite places!

The person that seated us was rude; we waited about an hour for our dinner; no one
checked to see if that food was fine, until we were almost finished. we waited about 15 minutes to pay... will not return in the near future.
Marvellous, considering Covid. Great food & service.
Outdoor seating is in a blocked off street (only choice).
