Since opening in 2007 Osteria has become one of the country’s most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants, earning Chef Jeff Michaud the 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for “Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic” for his work helming the kitchen.
Michaud's classic take on Italian cuisine presented the perfect addition to Schulson Collective with Osteria's award-winning menu of antipasti, homemade pastas, house-cured salumi, authentic Neapolitan and Roman-style pizzas, wood-grilled meats, seafood and decadent desserts.
Complementing this menu is a fine selection of wine, handcrafted cocktails and craft beer.
Classically designed to have a warm, evocative aesthetic in an industrial setting, Osteria’s spacious dining room, glass-enclosed patio and private dining rooms—including a chef’s table—make it the perfect place for occasions of all scopes and sizes, whether it’s a quiet night out with friends and family, or a boisterous celebration with dozens of guests.

Food was absolutely fantastic and the service was great. We had a birthday party on March 15th and we were lucky to be able to dine just before all the Philly restaurants closed in response to the Covid19 pandemic. The staff were clearly doing everything they could to clean and sanitize the restaurant.
I'd give a better score for value, except that I am not used to spending so much for wonderful bottles of wine......Food was very good value.

Food is very good. Osteria serves family style. Plates are meant for sharing. That is fine, but bring serving utensils, if this is your format. We had to ask for serving utensils everytime a dish came out. Also, how long does it take to boil water. We ordered tea and we waited, and waited, and waited. I had to ask the waitress where was the tea. After investing in renovations, Osteria should now focus on improving upon the basics of service. I will give Osteria another try. Hopefully yesterday was an off night.

Important to be careful about where you will be sitting within this restaurant. There appear to be 3 main areas. One of them, in the front, adjacent to the bar and kitchen, is loud and cramped, with a view of waitstaff making drinks and coffee. It's not a place you can really enjoy a nice evening out. If you are just dropping in fro some pizza and a glass of wine, sure. I'll ask directly about being seated in other dining areas if we go back.

This is such an amazing and vibrant place. Excellent food and if you are lucky enough to be there for happy hour, it's a real deal! Food was soooooo good and nothing disappointed us. Burrata, mussels and the pasta was delicious. It made our trip to Philadelphia even more memorable!

Visiting from out of town we sat at the bar. We had pizza, pasta, and potatoes side.
Pizza was good but we ended up eating it cold because pasta and the side landed right after we started enjoying it.
Well it is nice to be rushed once in a while.

No coffee or sweets were offered. Cant review them. Sorry.

Hope yall enjoy the winter.

Waited to be seated 15 minutes after reservation time, which was okay but then waited another 20 to order drinks once we were seated. Bar area was too crowded to get a drink while we waited.

Food was good but one entree came out cold and one was 5 minutes after the others due to ‘communication issue’ in kitchen.

A few meals were very good and the dining area is very nice. Overall disappointing if you think this is a top Philly restaurant.

Fantastic meal. From start to finish everything was perfect. Had a short wait at the bar before being seated. Atmosphere at bar was lively, bartenders friendly, drinks were great, and got us off on the right foot. A few minutes after we were taken to our table a little room with maybe 12 tables, it felt intimate but not stuffy and they decor was hip without being too cool for school. We shared 4 or 5 dishes and each was homerun! Can't wait to go back.

Food was phenomenal as usual and the ambiance is amazing. However, we had a decent amount of food we asked to have packaged up but once our waiter took it away we waited about 20 minutes and never received it nor could it be located. Hopefully next time this issue can be avoided since we had about two full plates of food we wanted to take home. Otherwise the night was great.

I was hesitant to write this but I have to register how disappointing I was with osteria. The food is amazing and our waiter was very knowledgeable which made our experience great. However, my husband and I specifically said we were not too hungry and asked if we could share the $58 tasting menu. Our waiter said it was fine since it is served family style. My husband even asked if the waiter thought it would be enough for the both of us and that we would order more food after if we needed after. The waiter said it would be enough food. When we ordered the check, we were surprised to see they charged $58 x 2 for the tasting menu. We asked the waiter and he said they “adjusted” the amount of food since there were 2 of us and apologized for the miscommunication. My husband and I were there in November and ordered some of the food from the tasting menu and it was the same amount of food. No way they “adjusted” the amount of food this time. We didn’t want to ruin our experience and paid the amount charged. But, we were very disappointed, especially since we had asked before. We will not be coming back.

We had a party of 8 with a reservation. Restaurant was very crowded and after 45 min we were still not seated. After speaking with the hostess’ about our frustration, they offered us the back room in the kitchen as our table was still not ready. We had a fabulous dinner! The food and service once we got to our room was fantastic! We think the night ended up better since we got our own room!!! As for noise we didn’t have Any but the main restaurant was rather noisy. We will definitely go again! They did the right thing in the end and we had a memorable night! Be sure to order the Parma pizza and burrata!!
