We took our daughter in law here to celebrate her Master's Degree and ended up celebrating the food! Loved the halubut, the veal was scrumptious, the lasagna - to be ordered again and the lobster pasta - the best! Service was attentive, server was knowledgable, room was a bit noisy - hard to carry on a conversation... We are from out of town but hope to be back!

This is my favorite restaurant- anywhere. The food is wonderful, especially the fresh pastas and hojusemade cheeses. I love the design of the restaurant and the staff is knowlegable and great. I have nothing bad to say about Osteria, it is phenomenal.

This is a great place to sample innovative and creative Italian cooking. One of our favorites. Loved everything.

A well executed menu with some thoughtful, challenging items on it. I have no complaints about the food. The service, though, ruined the meal. Inattentive, unknowledgeable and... dour. It was really a disappointment, especially at this price point.

Dining at Osteria was a very enjoyable experience! The waiter was extremly knowledgable and helpful and the food was outstanding. Had the vege antipasti special and the chicken liver rigatoni. Althought it was very delicious, it indeed resembled Hamburger Helper (as a previous post stated)! Besides appearances, it was so so good and had a great balanced flavor. For those who are intimidated by liver dishes, get this one because its quite approachable! The people who joined me got the wild hare dish and the rabbit which were also good! I wish they had a better draught list...they only had 3 beers on tap, but they did have a variety of bottles.

Last night we went to Osteria and came away disappointed in almost every facet imagenable. The service was perfunctory, the food was salty, the portions were small, the place was uncomfortable and the prices for the location were outrageous. Maybe it's a place for the younger and hipper set but unless you are getting pizza you'll have the opportunity to leave your wallet behind. Given the location I can't see how they will sustain the prices or the business. There are so many other fine restaurants in Philadelphia to go to that aren't pretentious and serve great food at reasonable prices. Save your money!

I lived in Italy for 2 years and I have to say this is the best Italian pizza I have found in America. It was delicious. I thought the portions were perfect and the service was outstanding. They did not bother my boyfriend and I as we took our time ordering and eating, and they allowed us to split a pizza (which I don't recommend since I wanted to eat the whole thing myself). The polenta budino dessert was out of this world. I would go there all the time if I could afford it.
