Outstanding food and GREAT service!!!
Excellent experience. Knowledgeable, courteous staff. Food was the best!
We thought food was good, but felt the service was rushed. Also the specialty menu had no prices & my husband & I both chose the Seabass @ $43 each it was very good but seemed a little steep. Just my thoughts.
Had a delightful lunch here. If/when we're back in San Diego we would definitely try dinner. Food was good as was the service.
Hard to hear and difficult to understand accents. Loved the authenticity and the food was good. We came when there was another large group so it was extremely difficult to hear anyone.
Delicious meal and impeccable service. Our waiter (the owner perhaps?) couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. We and our friends had a great meal and a great get together.
Food Was Very Delicious 😎😎😎
We are in town from Minnesota because my husband is at a conference at the Marriott. We weren't sure where to eat dinner so I Googled it, Osteria Panevino came up, the menu looked good so we made a reservation. We were delighted! The atmosphere, service and food were amazing! We especially loved our server who was so genuine and took very good care of us (Mario, maybe...married to a woman from MN). The food was so delicious and just what we were hoping for-I had the salmon and my husband had the seafood pasta. To. Die. For! We will definitely be coming back when we're in town again!
Easy and convenient! Food was perfect!
Went there with friends after a day around the bay. The service was impeccable. Our servers meal suggestions were spot on. Their specialty cocktails are very good. My only gripe is the tiramisu was a bit small. Other than that it was a great dining experience. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Great food and excellent service as always.
Thanks for your excellent service annalisa
wonderful food with several vegetarian/vegan options. when the wrong dish was served to me, it was quickly replaced and we were treated to dessert for the inconvenience.
From the moment we arrived we were taken care of. The hostess was kind and happy, the waiter was attentive and quick and the food was primo. Highly recommended for the homemade pasta and sauces. I had the lobster ravioli and tried the sea bass. Both prepared and cooked to order.
This was amazing Italian food! I had the tuna and lobster mashed potatoes. Hands down the best tuna I have ever had. The wait staff was very attentive but not over bearing.
Just OK. Caesar salad and large steak which had far too much fat.
The food and service is always excellent. We try to have at least one meal here every time we’re in San Diego.
The waiters and waitress always remember us, so it’s like family when we go back. Very friendly, very accommodating with authentic Italian food dishes. Presentation is always top notch! This is a "must go to" for all our family gatherings and celebrations! Awesome, awesome, awesome! Don't miss this beautiful Italian restaurant.
Outstanding selections, great location. Loved it.
It was a wonderful meal and the service was excellent!
We had a lovely evening. We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu, bruchetta, sea bass, limonchello cake and tiramisu. The bruchetta was good but the portion was very large. Not a fault , but I couldn't eas it all. The sea bass with lobster bisque and risotto was fantastic. Totally cleaned the plate. The desserts were tasty as well. We did the wine paring and it was wonderful. Lovely wines and a limonchello at the end. Great service, wonderful atmosphere, all around great time.
Tried Osteria Panevino before a Broadway performance. Our waitress was very nice and worked with us to get our order in without having to rush to make our show. The food was good, not great. My chicken parm was a little dry but my salad with greens, pears, corn and a very good blood orange vinegarette dressing was delicious. My husband tried the mushroom risotto and while he said it wasn't as good as mine (!!!!), he did like it. Our friends both had the fish special and were happy with it. A nice to place to go if you are walking up Fifth towards the Civic Center! Prices were reasonable and the corkage fee - yes, we always take our own bottle of wine - was only $15. Worth it in the long run!
Excellent service and yummy food. Will come back soon.
Osteria is by far the best Italian Restaurant I have had the pleasure of dining at (twice). Homemade pasta...the Lobster Ravioli was to die for... great selection of wine and authentic Italian servers.
Just picked a restaurant from
Google for best Italian in gas lamp district and this is what came up. Food was so very very good and the servers were all so friendly dry and helpful. We loved the food and would definitely return!
Had my fav wine and the gluten free pasta was awesome!
Every time I am in San Diego I go to this restaurant. Everything is simply delicious
Someone at the restaurant called me while I was dining inside the restaurant to ask if I was still coming for my reservation. I replied that I had already checked in for my reservation 20 minutes ago and was seated 20 minutes ago. Service was unfriendly. Noise level was unbearable. It was so crowded that people kept bumping into me trying to get past my table. Not a good experience at all.
Just very good food with excellent service
Unusual to find an Italian Reataurant with good Gluten Free pasta. The gluten free penne pasta was incredible! The waiters were very attentive and the portion sizes are huge!
This is one of our first choices for San Diego restaurants in Little Italy for authentic Italian food each year when visiting. The service is excellent and accommodated our large group easily. We plan to return again next year!
Great service! Excellent food and wine choices. Bread, appetizers, everything was fresh and delicious! Noise level was a bit high to me but we were seated near the door. Overall great option!
A tourist trap restaurant. Unbelievably bad food...
pizza seemed to be reheated frozen pizza.... it’s not that hard to make pizza.... how can they think this is in any way acceptable?
Pasta over cooked and sauce bland....
complete tourist trap .... nowhere near acceptable Italian food.
Just wow! We were staying in the area and found this place online and decided to give them a try. SOOO glad we did. BY FAR THE BEST ITALIAN I'VE HAD IN MY LIFE! The place itself was lovely, wonderful ambiance. Our waiter Mario was polite, attentive, and provided excellent service. The food was incredible. Didn't plan on killing the plate...but i devoured it. True authentic Italian. We will definitely come back when we are in the area!
There were 11 of us; the service was excellent and the food was DELICIOUS.
Our 3rd visit. Really like this place. Great food, drinks and atmosphere!
best Italian restaurant I have been to,
their pasta is house made and delicious, try the gnocchi with short ribs, you wont regret it..
Service is impeccable, with great ambiance...
Whenever I travel to San Diego this is a must stop. Outstanding service and the meal is always top notch.
We order a seafood pasta with a variety of seafood including lobsters, mussels, clams, etc. when the dish arrives, we can both smell that the lobster has gone bad with a nasty smell. I told the waiter about it and he came back and told me that the chef said the lobster was fresh and did not do anything about it. we ended up leaving with the full dish uneaten. Horrible experience!
Awesome service, Super yummy and great atmosphere! We had a big group and everyone loved the food! Great appetizers. I would go again in a heartbeat!
Really friendly restaurant with very good food. Excellent espresso (owner imports coffee from Sicily). Highly recommended.
