    There was one server but, as the place wasn't crowded that wasn't a problem. The service was "good". The pasta plate was, however, very disappointing. We all had it so I can't speak to other plates. But as it is an Italian restaurant I would have thought the pasta would be good. So we were generally disappointed.

    First and foremost, the food was absolutely delicious. Zucchini blossoms, burrata salad, pasta with pesto and fish livornese had intense flavors that belied their simple yet elegant presentations. The service was warm and attentive, and the restaurant is quiet and classy. Will definitely return!

    Se were in the area and decided to try this new restaurant. Surprise!was very nice , and cozy. Service was very good, and one of the best cacio e pepe in town, real one, no cream , no butter. They bring the bread with an amazing olive oil from Tuscany. So good that we have to ask. Romaine salad very fresh, and perfect dressing. We definitely going back. Good wine list. And have a bar and very nice outdoor seating.

    Food was great. Had the Burrata appetizer, Caesar Salad with Shrimp and Meatball Sandwich. Shrimp in the salad was one of the best pieces of shrimp I have ever had. Eggplant and Peppers with Burrata were also amazing.

    We had nice dinner. restaurant was attractive. The service was excellent - Attentive without being pushy. The menu is limited but the food pretty good. It was. It crowded on a Saturday night but the restaurant opened about 6 months. They say they are getting busier. It is a pleasant neighborhood place.

    We were searching for a wonderful place for a small reunion of friends after we would see an art show at the ISAW institute and happened on L’Osteria. Everyone who had eaten at this terrific new Italian Bistro raved about its food. And indeed we found it to be as excellently described. The food was totally delicious well prepared and presented and the service fantastic: friendly, and professional . The four of us(at lunch) shared the meatballs(so delicious in a wonderful homemade red sauce and the excellent Burrata. I had pasta with a lovely meat sauce my husband and friend had the salmon and another had the interesting and delicious ravioli. All entrees were well made and the lunch timing was excellent. We shared two desserts and both were wonderful. There is indoor and outdoor dining. The staff top notch. We will be back

    This was our first time to L’Osteria but it won’t be our last. Great neighborhood place that serves well-portioned courses - quite tasty - Chicken Milanese was perfect. One of the best, fresh cannolis I’ve had in a long time. Well done.
