Once the doors open at L’Osteria, you’ll feel like you’re in a typical Italian osteria, where people get together to eat really well and enjoy the company of families, friends, couples, old and young. It is a lively atmosphere, and the delicious smell of authentic Italian cuisine lingers in the air. This is an open, welcoming place, where everyone can be themselves and feel at home. L’Osteria is famous for the best, best pizza and pasta d’amore. The sizeable pizza is larger than the plate. It is frequently ordered by two persons with different toppings on each half. And wait until you see the pasta! Additionally, we offer many other timeless classics of Italian cuisine, such as antipasti, salads, delicious dolci and a weekly menu featuring the season’s freshest ingredients and special pasta creations. By the way, Since 2015, our maccheroni, strozzapreti and tortelloni have been made in our own pasta factory in Nuremberg.

Service wasn’t great.
Pizza got cold very quickly and the cheese on the margeritaa was too salty.
Great value and nice ambience

Food and service excellent. My glass of red wine was served very very cold, however the server did find a somewhat warmer bottle and happily replaced it. The bar staff need to find a warmer location for keeping red wine - specially in winter.

Booked a table for 19:15pm, was still waiting to get in at 8pm... as were about 40 other people. Little communication, constantly having to check in. Food was decent, but this ruined the night having to wait with no apology - and staff saying it was all too much.

Very well organised system outside for queuing although we prebooked a table.
We weren’t kept waiting, inside and seated without a fuss - sanitiser available and temperatures taken.
Server was excellent, so friendly, helpful and efficient.
Pizzas were HUGE, biggest I have ever seen; thin and crispy.

Social distancing measures were very poor, despite our body temperatures being taken upon arrival. Our designated waiter was lovely, but the other members of staff were incompetent and lacked basic customer skills. We even overheard two members of staff arguing with each other regarding another customer’s food bill.

Food was fine overall.

This is by far my favourite restaurant in Southampton. I confess I am a regular and get withdrawal symptoms if I do not get there ever two-three weeks. The staff are always friendly and remember my face. The pizza's are absolutely delicious, you don't feel ripped off ever and the atmosphere is always buzzing. I think this group got it right.

We had mixed feelings about this visit. Our first annoyance was that In spite of our booking we weren’t seated until a full 30mins after our booking time and people continually came out to smoke right next to the line of people waiting which was very unpleasant.
Once inside the staff were friendly and the service quick and efficient! The atmosphere was buzzing ( though maybe a little too loud ) and we liked the style of the restaurant decor. However.. the speed that our food appeared may not have been a good thing. Both me and my partner left with poorly tummys, his more so than mine ( he had a calzone ) . When I arrived home I looked at our leftovers to find a practically raw pizza base and I only imagine his was too! When it’s hot you don’t realise but I’m convinced that was why we came home not feeling well at all. It’s such a shame.. we had heard such good things and been checking weekly to book ( it’s always busy) It looks like a great place, sounds like a great place and as I said, the waiting staff were great and if we didn’t get Ill id say the value for money was fab! . maybe we were just unlucky but I’m afraid we will not be returning.

Despite the pizzas being burnt all the way around the circumference and noticing other tables were served the same making it actually uneatable , the atmosphere was professional and warming. The desserts were very nice and large portions , the tiramisu however needs improving as couldnt taste the coffee or liquor!! I would definitely recommend a visit , having eaten there before Ive always had no complaints the pasta dishes are superb . The service is always delightful

Wasn't very impressed for a first timer. We were a group of 4. We were still eating our starters when the waiter comes with the mains, and waits there by the table while we try and swallow whole ou food, so he can put the ginormous pizzas down.
One staff member had no regard for covid safety measures, just snuck up behind me and was 5 inches from my face asking me what drink I wanted.
When I got home, had to rush to the toilet- 15 mins later, both my friends texted me asking if my tummy was ok, as they just had to rush to the toilet as well.
I don't think I'll be going back.

First visit for me and won’t be the last. Friendly staff and a great atmosphere.

Would recommend booking as they do get busy with people queuing outside. Be warned that you will be expected to sanitise your hands and have your temperature checked upon arrival, which can only be a good thing.

Deserts took a while to come out, but we didn’t mind. Happy enough enjoying our evening for it to even matter.

Took advantage of the ‘eat out to help out’ scheme, but we ended up giving most of the savings as a tip to our server. She was pretty awesome.

Come with an empty stomach, the portions are massive for what you pay for.
