Pizzeria
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 staff friendly it was a shame that the same person didn’t serve us all the way through our stay and because of that there was a slight delay with drinks but apart from that food and experience very good .

Waitress called me pretty when I felt kind of ugly which was really nice. Carbonara was lengers but very filling. LOTS of cocoa powder on my tiramisu (maybe too much but some people like that). Vibes were cute, bare Italian.
So rate it

We have been going here since it opened. Best pizza in Southampton. Not possible to eat a whole one on your own and very normal to get one between two with different toppings on each half. Great atmosphere. Always book as it's always full.

Even though we had booked we had to queue for 15minutes outside, once seated it took 30mins for our drinks to arrive, and w further 45mins for food! That being said, once it arrived the food was delicious!

The server was fantastic and engaged with my wife and myself. The only mark on the evening as far as we were concerned was the lady at the door, we were slightly late due to traffic and tried multiple times to contact the restaurant to explain however when we tried to explain to her she was rude and exclaimed we were very late. We left in plenty of time and were late due to reasons out of our control, we rang 30 times with no answer. We did not expect to have be shamed at the door for circumstances out of our control. We attended on 9 OCT 21 at 1830. Aside from that the evening was lovely and the food was fantastic.

Pizza clearly their speciality but being part italian I can say with authority that the pasta is salty congieled and dry. Ambience feels fabricated by means of music that is undiscernable and far too loud to the degree that you cant hear one another talk.

Food and service were great despite the one pizza being wrong but rectified very quickly. Music and ambience very loud, possibly due to the ridiculous DJ set going on outside. Still had a great time and enjoyed our food. Oh and our baby faced 14 yr old loved his colouring sheet and pencils from our lovely waitress Sandra 😉🤣

Very disappointed in the service, food was lovely, but over all experience put me off coming again , had to pull someone every time we needed something , no check back on our food and need to ask for drinks in between and , for the bill and to order , basically had to ask for everything instead of someone come up to us, at the end the cost was £42 , and out waitress ask if we would like the change , think it very rude should never ask if we would like the change to our money, if we would of tip out of own choice. Shame as food was nice but due to service won’t be returning again.

Really rude staff. Didn’t take our order for ages for drinks or food and then whenever we did get their attention for anything there was attitude and an eye roll. I’m a manager in hospitality myself and it was so so rude… normally eat there a lot as well and never had a problem. If the staff cannot handle the number of covers then don’t sit them all.
