Delicious and creative menu. The tuna carpaccio was delicious as well as the linguine with seafood.
Food was ok.. but they had no steak sauce .. no hot sauce like really no nothing to go with certain items you order ... great location tho
Exceeded my expectations. Can’t wait to go back so I can try more of the menu!
After all the hype the food was just MEH. We had the octopus, which was cooked very nicely however the flavoring wasn’t that exciting and it was salty. We also had frito misto which was just ok and also the buratta which was the best of the three. We decided to give some homemade pasta a try so we ordered rigatoni in a jar. This was very tasty but also a little too salty. We boxed it up and when I reheated it at home I added some cream and it was delicious. Not sure if the chef was having an off night or what. Though the food was slightly disappointing the service was excellent! For the prices I want to be wowed but I wasn’t.
Great food, glad I had reservations as it was packed. Nice ambiance. Bread at table would be nice, instead of upon request.
Fantastic food and service was great!
Food is amazing
Barely any pasta options during lunch time, no point in going unless for dinner. Had I realized how few pasta choices there were I never would’ve gone. Don’t need to go to an Italian restaurant for their pancakes, why not offer more actual Italian food during lunch/brunch??
The staff was very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable about the menu
We were greeted by a super friendly hostess that immediately wished my friend a “happy birthday!” Matthew was an excellent server. He helped us select some AMAZING appetizers, entree, pizza, and pasta! The manager, Frank, also came over to wish our friend a happy birthday and to make sure everything was on point!!! Will definitely come back again!
The food was fantastic and the service very friendly. The noise level was high. We will recommend it to friends.
Food was amazing!
We had an excellent meal, our server was wonderful. We will be back again.
The food was outstanding. The service was superb.
Fantastic from start to finish!!!
Our first time here for brunch (we’ve been for dinner and it was great too - HUGE gluten free menu for dinner which is a plus!) ... everything was delicious and it was a beautiful day to sit on the patio!
Another great meal! Food & drinks were amazing. Harrison our waiter is a true pro! Looking forward to our next meal.
Food description weren't very clear and my friend sent her order back for something else. brunch menu needs some help but im told the italian entrees are where it's at so I'll likely return for dinner next time.
The atmosphere was excellent, the service was excellent. The food was good, but not worth the hefty prices. It was $100 for 2 persons with 1 drink each.
Great addition to the Tampa restaurant scene. Pricey, but welll worth it. I most certainly will come again.
First visit here was transcendent; this time not so much. Service was a little amateurish and annoying. Octopus still amazing but small for the price. Bread great. Pizza good. Pasta dishes all a little too rich—they could cut back on the butter a tad. Outside seating next to bus box wasn’t great. Overall good but not great like before.
Christmas Eve at Osteria Tampa was perfect. Octopus was tender and charred beautifully. Salads were fresh and tasty, not overly dressed. My husband never finishes his salad and I was prepared to do it for him but he ate the whole thing! The special tortelloni with lobster and scallops were terrific, as was the squid ink pasta. Both were served mixed with uni butter.... just amazing. Our server Dominick was attentive and pleasant with top notch service right down to the suggested wines. In between courses the silverware was changed, the table was kept clean (despite our efforts to make a mess), and the water glasses were always full. Thank you for the best dining experience we have had in Tampa in a long long time. We will be back.
Second time we simply love the food and the service. The food has so much taste and very fresh, they also very friendly servers that go out of their way for my vegetarian son in law with allegories. They are truly a top notch restaurant if you appreciate the better dining experience but yet so down to earth to want to go more than special occasion. Truly love it....
We had a server named Peggy and she’s a huge reason why we will be back besides the awesome food and atmosphere it’s great for brunch and overall just a great time :)
The octopus was excellent as well as the salad. The beef rib ragu was was delicious!
Had a wonderful holiday dinner with my parents the week before Christmas. The service was professional, yet friendly. The pacing of the meal may have be slow for some but it was perfect for us as it allowed us chat and not feel rushed. All of the dishes we ordered were amazing! Some of the best Italian food we have eaten outside of Italy. Definitely, a must add for any foodie visiting Tampa.
amazing food and service. We had the pork chop and it was so big we split it.
There were four of us for dinner. We sat in the bar side, which I think has better ambiance than the dinnner side. The dinner menu is focused on Italian, with freshly made pasta. The wines by the glass is fairly extensive and very good. There is valet parking.
Server and service was excellent. Very lovely. Confusion on table number and drops for food and drinks, but minor issue. Food was great. Pizza was awesome and tasty. Meatball was a little dry and sauce was a little watered down. Bummed because we had it before and it was exceptional and delicious. Lara dishes were great and would get again. Table was outside which was fine. Weather was comfortable. Outdoor heaters were going out frequently which made the females a little chilly. Atmosphere was lively, popping and fun. Would definitely try it again!
This trendy new restaurant has terrific service. The noise level however, was obnoxious. It was impossible to carry on a conversation with anyone at your table. The food was decent, but with all the great Italian restaurants in Tampa, I would find a different one for the next time.
The food service and overall experience was amazing. Already booked another dinner for next week. This is a gem for Tampa
The food was fresh but needed more seasoning. All 3 of dishes we had were bland.
Osteria is the perfect experience. A lively, fun atmosphere with exceptional customer service and delicious, unique recipes. Our server was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations for wine. Also, the octopus appetizer is a must. We will definitely be returning soon!
This is my second visit and the food and service were just as fantastic as the first time. This time, we went for my husband's birthday and we sat outside. It was a lovely night and the outdoor seating was a bit quieter than the noise inside. We had the Octopus salad which was amazing - I am not a fan at all of Octopus, but even I was surprised at the soft tenderness of the meat and the lemony sauce - delicious for dipping bread. Both of our entrees were delicious and the service was excellent.
Food was delicious...most pasta made on site, good wine list, good service & cool vibe
Our server was great and we really enjoyed the violinist that was there that night. He was very energetic and we loved the music! Will return =)
Delicious from start to finish! Slight snafu with the valet that delayed me, but otherwise a great experience
Simply amazing, great atmosphere, took care to get us out to the show on time and fantastic food!! Squid pasta is a must.
Outstanding! Went to celebrate a birthday. Food and service were excellent. Will be going back to try other menu items.
It is a cool restaurant. The building and design it self is awesome, the food, not so much. I have gnocchi, it was cooked nicely but the sauce and flavor were not there. My girlfriend got the ravioli, also not much flavor. Food was overall bland. Desert was tasty though
