    Food was the usual standard - so good. Gnocchi very good. cacio e pepe with truffle was better the time before. Service was OK but slow. The lady at the entrance seemed a bit lazy and confused upon checkout which delayed us.

    It was great. The food and the service were top notch. It is a small place but has a really nice vibe, I enjoyed it and strongly recommend it. Reservations are pretty much a necessity due to its size and popularity. Enjoy! The limoncello was fantastic!

    We have dined here a number of times and have never been disappointed. But the best endorsement this time came from an Italian gentleman seated at the table next to us who proclaimed Osteria Romana the best Italian restaurant in all of London. I take his endorsement, coming from an expert.

    The staff were great and I really appreciated they were open for Christmas Day. The restaurant was very clean and the tables were not too close to each others (compared to the London average). food was delicious and wine was good too. I would have appreciated a table cloth and alas, that the wine list didn’t have the ‘typo’ they claimed: a 2020 Nebbiolo was sold instead of the listed 2018 one but the price didn’t change. Finally, all the ‘white’ pastas had the same ‘Cacio and Pepe’ sauce: there was basically no difference between the carbonara and the grigia. And all pastas were pricey. The vin santo was really overpriced: the quality wasn’t up to the price.

    We came on Christmas Eve. Service was okay. Our server was friendly, but they brought us two wrong dishes. Meat was not evenly cooked. The oxtail was kinda mixed with overcooked and very tender meat. Even the same piece could be half overlooked/try& hard while the other half very tender. Pasta was very tasty.

    The food was incredible - the pasta was cooked amazingly and was very fresh. The pasta dishes were very filling! The staff were really lovely and cheerful, they uplifted our whole experience. We went for a birthday and they brought a dessert with a candle and played music and sang for the birthday girl, which was so lovely. The location is also great in Knightsbridge, very close to the station but down a little side road which is very cute. Both the interior and exterior are aesthetic. Overall amazing experience!

    Shocked by the bad service. We were told we need to give our table back whilst we were still eating our main course, after an hour and a half, whereas the booking clearly stated we had the table for two hours. When we discussed this with the staff they ignored it and claimed it doesn’t apply. The situation was managed very poorly. Asked for napkins and did not receive any. Food was average and expensive for what it was.

    Visited Osteria yesterday with my family for my birthday lunch. Having read lots of positive reviews of the place I was really excited to dine here, however was overall disappointed by the food. The selection of starters was very limited and with two of the options being tuna dishes, pasta was extremely al dente- even after having requested for it to be cooked for longer. Service was generally good from our waiter David and the complimentary birthday dessert with song played was a particularly nice and special touch.

    Good food, we have waited so much time for our main. No more olive oil and basil on table with focaccia. I can see some guests next to us had a limoncello for free at the end, not us…

    Food is wonderful - we had the tuna gazpacho and steak tartare followed by the house speciality truffle pasta finished in a cheese wheel, the Brad served was also excellent. The service was just ok, the wine list was very pricey and the quality didn’t match the price. Overall the food shone through.

    We loved our dinner, our waiter chose delicious wines for us and the food was lovely. If I had to say anything it was that the tiny table at the back was really too small for 4 persons and we felt very hemmed in - also it was extremely noisy at time with plates and cutlery being unnecessarily bashed about - but overall I’d say it was a 7/10 experience and we will come again

    Whilst the food was good on the other hand service was basically absent. We have been served filtered water at £4.50 without being made aware as we thought it was tap water. After we wanted to get more details regarding the menu and the waiter was apparently not so aware of what was on the menu. Hard to get attention despite the fact there were lot of staff.
