Nice outdoor seating. Fun experience in downtown Tampa. Unfortunately the interior seating reminds me of a sports bar. Food is outstanding
Started by giving us a filthy glass. They switched it. Service was average. Food was incredibly overpriced! Not anywhere near what it should’ve been. Ravioli dish was pretty good. Seafood linguini was terrible. Like rubber. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend. At $20-35 per plate and $20 appetizers you expect something good. This failed us miserably for our anniversary.
New Easter buffet quite a success.
Help informative, conversant and charming.
Food imaginative and of high quality.quality
Breathe of fresh air! Very personable staff, wonderful outside dining on a quiet street close to The Straz, Curtis Hixon Park and Tampa Theater. The variety of the food served at brunch was great and satisfied many diet restrictions.
Great food and ambiance. The pastas were very fresh and salted caramel gelato amazing!
We absolutely loved everything about Osteria! The ambience, the service was amazing! John did a superb job sharing his passion and excitement of the food and highlighting the specialness of each dish. The food was excellent! Sooo delicious! Thank you for a wonderful evening!!
Excellent server and the drinks are great. Food was terrific as well.
Our server, Peggy, handled our table beautifully, not too much attention, just right. The food that we ordered, appetizers, entrees and desert was very tasty. Overall it was a great dining experience and we certainly will return.
Great service and good food.
Loved this cool, hip Italian restaurant. The food was hot, delicious, and high quality. Will definitely be coming back here again. Also I loved the Frose drink and will dream about drinking that again.
We originally ate here because there was an event at Franklin Manor. I really just wanted snacky foods, but this was a pleasant surprise! We love their Prosciutto Pizza and the Rigatoni in a Jar! The only two things we’ve had from there because they’re just so good!
Amazing food and drinks! Always enjoy my visits!!!
Great service and our waitress was outstanding. The food was unique and my wife had pasta, which was excellent.
Out tonight with my Beautiful Wife. Been to Osteria Tampa by Chef Fabio Viviani multiple times. Busy Sunday. Despite reservations decided to sit at the Bar to eat. Glad we did. Our bartender/server Thomas provided excellent service, recommendations and conversation while working both inside and outside.
Food the best as usual. Nice chat with the manager also. See ya next time. 🍷🍇🇮🇪🍸
Delicious food, inventively presented. Service was warm and fast. We had a wonderful meal. Great option for those attending a show at the Straz afterward, as we did.
Attentive and friendly service
Four of us had a Pre -Show dinner on a Saturday evening and we truly enjoyed our dining experience!! Our server was Mike who was outstanding; taking time to explain menu options and answering any questions that we had during our stay. Our dinner choices were all delicious including the ink squid pasta dish, red sauce pasta dish, house salad, bread and fabulous tiramisu, gelato and sorbet. Even the espresso was wonderful!! Others who worked at Osteria would also drop by our table during the course of our dinner to check on us if we wanted or needed anything else!! We will definitely be back!!
Good food, young crowd for brunch.
Great food but a little bit loud. Noise is worth the food in my opinion with this one.
Great pastas, we just came for a fast meal, will certainly be back! Our service was superb!
The food overall was very bland. The seafood was mushy and the pasta flavorless.
One positive was that our waiter was very attentive.
Fabulous Dinner! The homemade pasta was delicious, the service was fabulous. We were very impressed and had a wonderful evening.
My new favorite restaurant!!
And I live in St. Pete!
Unfortunately the restaurant was out of several items on the menu and the waiter didn’t realize that was the case until well after we ordered. The food we ended up with was good but it took a while to get there.
menu was plentiful on Sunday noon lunch. Noise level was very loud from speakers but was turned down to accommodate us. Waiter was helpful and service good. valet parking provided in front of Osteria was by another service company, but attendant was not available when we returned to pick up car at a later time. was told it would be attended until 10 pm. it was not a comfortable situation when Osteria was left no message about how I was to obtain my car keys. service co. was 717 parking . I do want to come back to Osteria to enjoy more of their menu. We at our table had 4 different meals and all were very good, tasty, and visually enticing.
Excellent food and service
Harrison is the best server! Amazing food and ambience.
I really wanted to love this place but I got sick from the chicken, not sure if it was the overwhelming amount of seasoning or if it wasn’t cooked all the way. The service was outstanding but I don’t think I will be coming back since the food was pricey and I didn’t enjoy it that much.
Overbearing service asking for our orders, yet no silverware provided...
Outstanding, Dominic our waiter was great spot on with recommendations, food service were second to none. The manager came to our table twice to check on us, extremely pleasant. Pasta was Hot, delicious, the cheesecake was the perfect ending. Definitely be back!
Seafood linguini was awful, the smell was so putrid it attracted flies for us to swat away during dinner. Music was blasting and we could hardly talk. Additionally, our server was disinterested and left us for about 30 minutes without even checking in. I couldn’t even let them know about my disappointment with the food as my server was no where to be found. By time I finally saw her again I was so ready to leave I just wanted to pay and go. I will say the burrata was excellent and the bus staff was great. I saw them as much as my server.
Great dining experience and the food is great. The young lady manager on duty was very attentive and wanted to make certain that the customers were taken care of and pleased. My Girlfriend and I will definitely be back! Scott C. from Tampa
I live in New York and this Italian restaurant lived up to our standards in NYC! It was authentic Italian food with a modern twist to it. The appetizers were amazing and the presentation was great too. Our server was from NYC too and very knowledgeable about the wine and cocktails and food choices. I would highly recommend this restaurant
The service was great and the food was delicious. It was our first time going there but I definitely see ourselves coming back
Girls night out
The food was excellent, the staff was friendly and our server was outstanding. We ate outside where the ambience is nil. Having said that I’m anxious to go back for a second helping!
I chose Osteria solely based on it being a Top Chef contestant’s restaurant. We were so beyond happy with our experience that we have already talked about planning future vacations around Fabio’s restaurants. Everything was ridiculously awesome, from drinks and food, to our server and overall experience. I texted pictures of everything to my two best friends at home and told them we ARE coming back. Fabulous, fantastic, freaking awesome!
Our server had great recommendations.
