Convivial and inviting, Osteria's heart is its open main kitchen from which its award-winning menu of antipasti, homemade pastas, house-cured salumi, authentic Neapolitan and Roman-style pizzas, wood-grilled meats, seafood and decadent desserts are crafted.

Drawing its inspiration from traditional osterias found in Northern Italy, Osteria is the realization of a dream Vetri Family partners Jeff Benjamin and Chefs Marc Vetri and Jeff Michaud had while standing amongst the grapes of the Ca'Marcanda vineyards in Tuscany.

Since opening in 2007, Osteria has become one of the country's most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants, receiving a 3-out-of-4 bell review from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and earning Chef Michaud the 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for ""Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic"" for his work helming the kitchen."

Great sophisticated Italian food, lovely wine list. Service was friendly & competent, but seemed not up to the polished standards previously experienced here. Great wine guy!

Food was great. Service was good. Not great. Was on the pricy side. Wine list was $$. But food was great. Overall I walked out of there thinking how good the meal was.

Fish was not fresh. Hot food was not hot. Very loud. Large tables were hard to hear each other across.

After a bit of confusion at the hostess stand, we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation time even though our party had all arrived and checked in on time.

We kept it simple and ordered pizzas to share for appetizers and individual pastas for main course.

The beet, endive and Gorgonzola pizza is fabulous. My wife had mushroom ravioli, and I ordered wild boar ragu. Both were excellent.

Osteria is a consistent bet.

A blessedly quiet evening at Osteria, though Andrew and I worry since last time we were here it was also very quiet. But our charming server, Zeke, assured us that he has been working his tail off for the last three months, so a quiet Wednesday was ok with him, since he gets to really attend to his tables.

We shared the salumi platter, our usual Lombarda pizza, and two Primi: the candele with wild boar bolognese and the pheasant gnocchi. ALL great, as were my two Sicilian lemonades. After 11 years (and we attended two of the 10-year celebration dinners), we still love this place, even though Mr Vestri has departed.
Keep it up, guys!

The polpo pizza was unique and delicious. The polenta ravioli with the bone marrow sauce was light and also delicious. I will definitely return to try more items on the menu. The dessert menu was also excellent. We had the gelato with affogato and brioche and the chef sent out the chocolate mousse with hazelnuts. Both were very, very good.

What a beautiful dinner! We came for my 27 year old daughter's birthday, and it was special from start to finish. Each course was delicious, and the wait staff was just terrific. In all ways this was a wonderful experience. It's been a while since we've been here and this was a lovely reminder that we should come more often.

Despite making reservation 28 days in advance,we were taken through the dining area,down a corridor flanked on both sides with kitchen prep and storage. Then made a right turn through the line waiting to use the unisex bathrooms and were seated at a table in a room so dim that everyone was using phone lights or in my case a candle to read the sparse menu. The grilled octopus and pears were unremarkable. The steak for two was just a piece of meat with TURNIPS???? I guess potato's are just too common...My date and I decided to skip the double chocolate whatever and get a donut on the way home. ........This place was great just one year ago!!!
