Such a beautiful restaurant loved the atmosphere, great food !
It was absolutely incredible!
We dined here during Restaurant Week.
What an incredible dining experience.
We've dined here before and Osteria continues to shine.
Our server, Erin was awesome. The pacing was spot on.
Each course was perfectly prepared and presented.
Make sure to add Osteria to YOUR "bucket list."
Haven't been in a long time, and now I have no clue why! Always spot on with flavor - from drinks to apps to mains. Beautiful plating, fabulous desserts. It was restaurant week and quite noisy, so I missed our server's name but he was amazing as well! Most definitely one of the best spots in the city.
Great spot for a date, food was nicely prepared and tasty. Service was outstanding!
Awesome food incredible service
Great experience! Will definitely return!
We had an AMAZING serving. She was super knowledgeable and helpful. I would 10 for 10 recommend this place
Hadn't been here in awhile, but won't wait so long again! Interesting, delicious food with excellent service. I could make a meal on the bread alone!
First let me say that the food was excellent. We especially enjoyed the grilled octopus which was tender and perfectly seasoned. The wine list has a great variety of Italian wines. Our sever was friendly and attentive, but there was a long gap between the appetizers and the pasta course. We ordered three pastas but only received two. The main course came and we had to remind the wait staff about the third pasta. We chose Osteria because it was on the list of restaurants participating in restaurant week on that date and we do like the food there. The restaurant called at 1:00 that afternoon to confirm our reservation and notify us they were not participating in restaurant week. A little late to change plans as we do not live in Philly and were spending the weekend in town partly due to restaurant week. A little prior notice would have been nice.
The service was outstanding but the restaurant was 40 minutes late to seat us.
We waited an hour past our reservation time before we were seated. The restaurant didn’t offer anything to compensate.
The “chef’s selection” dessert was horrible, salty, and undercooked.
Out of 7 dishes only 2 were well-prepared. The others were either tasteless, over salted, or had a strong fishy taste (but no actual fish).
I would not go again
We had a reservation for 7:30 and we weren’t seated until 8:10, not sure if the kitchen was running behind but they tried to make up for it and give us a comp app. Over all besides the wait, food was decent and waiter was great .
The food is innovative and delicious. Portions were sizable, except for the scallops which were our least favorite course anyway. Tops on our list were the roasted vegetable appetizer, the chicken liver rigatoni, the pumpkin filled pasta and the ossobuco monkfish.
Went for restaurant week. Seated in the greenhouse. Hard to hear dining companion and the tables were a bit too close for comfort. Other than that a lovely place.
It was amazing from beginning to end. The food was incredible, some of the best I’ve eaten in awhile. The staff was friendly and our server was amazing. Kind courteous and provided great recommendations. It was quite expensive. But so worth it for the delicious meal and wonderful date night.
We went for restaurant week and the deal was amazing. We did the tasting menu for much less than it would normally cost. The cheese plate was delicious, all the pasta we ate could not have been cooked better. Our main course was the branzino and it was so good. We also got to sit in the glass enclosed patio area which I loved. Will definitely try again
Restaurant week menu did not state family style with full table agreement, which made ordering difficult given dietary restrictions of one person at the table. Otherwise, food was very good.
Food was amazing.
We went on a Thursday of a restaurant week. This was our 4th attempt at going (no fault of the restaurant), so we went with it... although we arrived right at our 7:30pm reservation time, the place was packed and seemingly every reservation was behind.
We took a seat in the lounge by the bar to wait it out and were very promptly greeted by a server Ian who took our drink order.
I’d say about 15-20 minutes after, a hostess retrieved us and seated us. As it was very busy, the noise level was high but wow, did the food make any discomfort from crowding and noise negligible. (I’m not crazy for crowds!)
Seriously, well presented and amazed the taste buds. I twice said to my girlfriend that I didn’t want to drink anything after eating (Branzino and the dessert) bc I didn’t want that taste washed away from my tongue. And even on a restaurant week presentation menu... decent portions and we did not leave hungry or wanting something different.
Kudos to Devon our waiter and the staff who were poised and pleasant throughout a completely hectic night.
Can’t wait to return.
Three of us went to Osteria for Restaurant week. We started off with a cocktail which was was very good, but quite small for the price. Our experience included picking a couple of things from several categories. The food was absolutely delicious, especially the pastas! The service and ambiance was also very good. Everyone was working very hard. The experience allowed us to try many things for a set price of $35 per person. The wine was also good, but overpriced. We would definitely go back!
excellent dinner. one of the best restaurants in philadelphia. outstanding.
Visited Osteria on a Wednesday night during restaurant week. Their 4-course chef's tasting menu for $35 was an outstanding value. Everything we ordered was excellent. The only blemish on the evening was an unexplained delay in getting our burata appetizer, but that was only a minor inconvenience. I can't wait to go back!!!
Went for Restaurant Week. They offer the Chef's Tasting Menu for the $35 pris fixe. Amazing value! The plates just kept coming and coming, with each one more delicious than the last. I have found Osteria to be a bit pricy in the past, but this deal is really fantastic. Take advantage of it if you can!
Table right by the expo station is uncomfortable.
Dinner at Osteria, went for an early dinner; it was Mussels night, all you can eat. 1 person got those and said they were delicious. Someone else got chicken farm and I got crab cakes. Dinners came with small salad except for mussels dinner. My crab cakes were good but could have been more flavorful, I think they needed more spices. The 2 dinners came with mashed potatoes and seasonal veggies. The waitress was very attentive and gave me more tea. It was quiet as we came earlier. Will go back again as was a good dinner.
We went for restaurant week and every course was better than the next! Absolutely delicious food! Would definitely return
Second time at Osteria, first time with my wife and adult children. Oustanding service, very good food, attractive space. Having spent lots of time in Italy, this seems to me food comparable to a solid Italian mid-level restaurant, with a few challenges in terms of ingredient price and availability. Both the porcinis in the pasta and the octopus seemed to me smallish portions, and the octopus was a bit overcooked for my taste.
Comparing Osteria to other Italian eateries in the U.S., this was a good to excellent meal. I'll certainly return.
Everything was great but the wine prices, which even for Philadelphia are outrageous.
Osteria is always excellent and by coming during Restaurant Week, it's a bargain, too. Osteria excels in all aspects of running a restaurant. The food is always well prepared and relatively simple, with each dish featuring only a handful of ingredients that mix well.
Loved this dinner! Can't wait to go back and hopefully get a seat in the sunroom section.
Attended for and participated in Restaurant Week. Overall the food was good. A few dishes were on the salty side for my taste, but overall I enjoyed the meal. The dining room to the side of the restaurant was very beautiful. Service was friendly and efficient.
Osteria is truly special restaurant. Our whole night was wonderful from start to finish. One suggestion, it was difficult to read the menu, even the young couple next to us felt that way.
Out of town family wished to dine at a “great Philly restaurant”, we chose Osteria. Everyone loved the family style tasting menu, which began with the vegetable antipasti, the cheese selection was especially good. Followed by bucatini and rigatoni. Next was seared scallops and the best branzino I’ve ever had! The desdemona cocktail was delicious, the pulcinella was acceptable but we couldn’t really taste the bourbon. Osteria is one of my favorite places to dine in Philly.
Went for Restaurant week and thought it was not worth the money. Vegetable antipasto was uninspired. Burrata was overly sweet. Pastas were good, but very salty. Duck breast was very tasty, but I don't think it would be worth the money if not restaurant week. Dessert they gave was their polenta budino, which was pretty disgusting.
Osteria was truly an experience. The service, the atmosphere and the food were all fantastic. If you’re looking to have a long leisurely dinner sharing delicious food and drinks with friends this is a must.
Servers need to be a bit more attentive and knowledgeable of the product/ ingredients. Bar service was extremely slow. Server had to keep apologizing for the delays.
Food was very good. Definitely a positive recommend to friends.
Made a reservation for 5:45 before a show at the Met. This fell perfectly within happy hour on a nice night in January so we asked for outdoor seating and ordered on the happy hour menu. We ordered burrata, whipped ricotta, ravioli, pizza, and sausage. Everything was delicious! The price point was great. Service was a bit slow to start and we suspect that was because we were seated in the happy hour area. However, as we ate and drank we were often asked if we needed anything by our waitress and managers. I would absolutely return for happy hour any day!
The food here is among the best in the city. It’s a large place and they have many servers. The prices are high especially for spring Garden. Dinner for three with two drinks was $210 incl tip. We waited more than 40 mins for our last course. I get that kitchens get backed up etc but what they should have done was offer us a drink while we waited. Instead at the same time they brought the fish and chicken they brought an extra pasta dish. I had the chicken wrapped to go so we could have dessert and celebrate my husband’s birthday. Or they could have comped our dessert. When we left there were several diners waiting. I’m sure at least one group was waiting for our table. It’s a domino effect. We will go back but next time we will ask to sit in the less noisy back room and be a lot less forgiving about course delays.
