Italian
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.

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.

Service was amazing. Spilled a drink in the food. Service immediately got us a new one and new meal free of charge. They were also very knowledgeable and recommendations were great!

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 don’t generally think it’s fair to review a restaurant on Valentine’s Day. The service and food were still excellent on such a busy evening!

The staff and food were amazing. I thought the tables were too close to each otger. We were trying to celebrate Valentine’s but the woman seated next to us smelled so bad. Other than that, the night was perfect.

We opted for the tasting menu. Great value and price! Plenty of food and lots of options. Very happy with the potion size, quality, and flavor.

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!!

Our server Ky was outstanding. He was very knowledgeable, courteous, and attentive. The food was perfectly executed. My one problem was with the spacing of the restaurant, we were sat at a table near the pass- we were constantly knocked into by staff members.

Food was not up to par. Pasta was overcooked and every dish was loaded with salt. Not what we would expect or have experienced at this price point.

Really enjoyed the reestaurant and it's lively atmosphere. The food is excellent; we had at our table the Buratta app (outstanding!) the raddichio salad (very good) and the Insalata Verde (I think that was the name and the salad was somewhat plain, but we knew that). The pastas - WOW! The Pumpkin and mushroom were our favorite. Topped the meal off with scallops and brazino. Everything was worth another visit!

You can tell the chef has a sweet tooth, the food all had a bit of unnecessary sweetness. Pasta was underwhelming and the veal was inedible. Overall way too expensive for the food quality. Service was spectacular tho so I’d try it again.

Starters were fantastic. Tuna was a star. Main courses were lacking. Love Bronzino and always have it filleted for me. Must have been someone’s first time. Bones in every bite. Pork chop was thinner than the breading. Great drinks and wine list.

Service and food was great, however the tables in the plant room were too close to each other making it very difficult to pass in between without rubbing against the tables. Also conversation was difficult as you were seated so close to the adjacent tables.

To the management: PLEASE, SERIOUSLY consider NOT TO set the table(s) by the handicap access door. Although we sincerely did not mind getting up, interrupted, TWICE throughout our dinner to allow our tables and chairs to be moved to clear the passage for wheelchair access; but our stiff joints were struggling a bit to get up and down after just settling in again, and again. Please, LEAVE that area CLEAR for wheelchair access for the sake of leisure dining. Thank you, Bonna Weinstein

Osteria remains as one of my favorite places in Philadelphia, especially for happy hour. The Italian dishes are skillfully prepared and the seasonal menu offers a variety of options to choose from. As a pescatarian, I find that there is always more than one option for me. The staff is also knowledgeable about the dishes/ cocktail selection/ wine and were willing to answer any questions I had about the menu. I will definitely come back!
