It was excellent!! We love the happy hour outside and having the opportunity to pick from both the Happy hour and regular dinner menus. We had an assortment of appetizers (tuna carpaccio, pizza, vegetable plate), a dish of lasagna and sea bass. Paired up with a Sagratino di Montifalco red wine. It’s too bad they are closing the restaurant for the rest of the year. My wife & I will MISS IT!
Our server Marissa was absolutely outstanding. She was on top of everything we needed, checked in frequently, and made very appropriate jokes. The food (Convivio tasting) was delicious. We added on the artichoke pizza and couldn’t finish all the food. As a fish lover, I adored the tuna with capers dish. The tiramisu was also a must-have!
My new favorite Italian restaurant in the city. Great outdoor dining that is not on a sidewalk. Half priced wine on Sunday is a huge plus.
Amazing enough said
We came for our anniversary and everything was wonderful from the food, to the service, to the extensive Italian wine list! Will come back again!
Great atmosphere and excellent food! Our waitress was very helpful and sweet!
The absolute best that could be hoped for under the trying circumstances of winter outdoor dining. Service was wonderful, food delicious. Pulling for these folks.
Had a lovely time with outdoor dining at Osteria. Even though the temp hung around 40 degrees the heaters were a perfect addition. My husband and I met our daughter to celebrate her birthday on a Sunday afternoon at 3:00. Lucky for us there was a Happy Hour menu of small plates. My daughter and I ordered several different ones from pasta to tuna and all were simply delicious as was the olive oil bread which was on the house. My husband ordered the pasta special which was also excellent. The meal ended with a huge slice of Panettone which included a lit sparkler to celebrate the occasion. We definitely will return.
Osteria is one of our favorites and we went Dec. 5 for our wedding anniversary. The food is just so wonderful and the service is a big reason we love going there. It's attentive without being annoying. Clearing the plates after each course, cleaning the table, fresh silverware - makes the whole experience better. Paul, our server Saturday, was wonderful. His suggestions were great and we really enjoyed his company. The ricotta pasta with pork special was amazing and I can still taste the chicken liver rigatoni. The setup during this pandemic was very comforting - clean, tables spaced apart, fresh air flowing and fans, all serving staff masked, temperature checks at the door. We felt really comfortable there. We hadn't been there in a while and said we definitely need to get back soon - the wild boar bolognese is callin' my name.
Great evening. Service was amazing, staff was very knowledgeable. Pizza was cook to perfection and crafted cocktails was a great experience. Not too expensive either!
Great outdoor dining experience. The food and service were excellent. Can't wait to return.
The food was fabulous as it always is. The staff is very friendly and make the experience wonderful.
During this Pandemic we will not dine inside ANY restaurant. We have been Osteria regulars and have been back a few times. As the weather gets colder the staff has added heaters and adjusts their temperatures. The heaters were effective, so we look forward to returning.
Delicious food, very good service, social distancing was intact, outdoor seating was comfortable and warm with a lovely ambiance. Would recommend to all.
One of the best Italian restaurants I have ever visited in the US. Seriously.
My boyfriend and I ate outside during COVID and I think they did a good job of following the various guidelines. I just wish the heat lamp was closer to the table but they probably put it at that distance for our safety. Still a lovely experience!
It was great! Food is delicious! Staff is friendly and professional. Atmosphere is very nice
The pizza is amazing!! Service was great. The indoor green house area is beautiful at night time.
Osteria is one of our favorite restaurants in Philly. The menu is a perfect size, complete with all kinds of unique dishes. Everything is very fairly priced and everything we ordered was amazing. Beautiful space to eat both indoor and outdoor. Cannot recommend it enough!
As good as ever. Outdoor set up is pretty, well spaced and comfortable. Felt safe and well cared for.
Food was amazing as usual (this was a repeat visit for us) and our service was so great. She was so professional and efficient, made the evening so enjoyable. We were so disappointed to hear that indoor dining will be closing in Philadelphia so hopefully we will be able to return soon.
Love this restaurant food and decor is awesome! The happy hour menu is the best!
Great service. Prosciutto board was delicious. Outstanding happy hour deals on Saturdays and Sundays. Will be dining here again.
Device and ambiance was great and food was light and refreshing.
The ambience and service was phenomenal, my SO and I came here for our anniversary and absolutely loved the experience. We shared a pizza and the hand-made gnocchi and left feeling content. Recommend for any couples or families looking for a memorable experience.
Slightly overpriced. The roasted chicken was bland. The Margarita pizze was average.
The restaurant was sparsely seated outdoors BUT we were reminded twice that we going ‘overtime’ on the 90 minute allowance. That seemed unnecessary.
Absolutely excellent! Service was perfection and food was very very good! Highly recommend.
Service was great and the food was delicious. I loved the Antipasta salad
Food and service was excellent as usual, but the noise level from the
ATV's on Broad St. was horrible. Worse than I've ever heard before.
If possible, you might consider building a noise barriar on the Broad St.
side. The noise problem will keep me from coming back soon.
They have a fantastic happy hour (great selection and value) in a very cute outdoor environment
We couldn't have been more pleased with our dining experience on Friday evening. We were a party of six and appreciated all of the safety measures in place for our group. Outdoor garden seating, perfectly situated adjacent to the beautiful stone wall and overlooking stained glass window of the adjacent cathedral. Martin, the GM, and the entire Osteria team, provided impeccable hospitality and wonderful service, accommodating each of our requests. Thank you!
Andy was an amazing waitress and made a first time dining experience superb.
Best Happy hour in Philly. Beautiful outdoor dining. Pasta as usual excellent.
We came to Philadelphia for the day to see the museum. We also wanted to have a wonderful but not overly expensive dinner. Since the COVID pandemic was (is) still in full swing and the weather was cold and rainy, we needed to feel comfortable with their safeguards. We definitely were. So our first restaurant dining experience in over 10 months was a success, thanks to Paul and the rest of the staff at Osteria.
5 star as usual. Service and food is exceptional.
Wonderful time with beautiful weather dining outside with friends for the best happy hour in philly!
Overall fantastic evening. The first date night out in months. We arrived a little after my reservation because the parking has changed - or I forgot what it was like years ago when last there. I could have sworn street parking at night was allowed on days other than Sunday. Being late wasn’t presented as an issue. Very gracious.
Food was great. We ordered 2 apps, one primo, one secondo, dessert, (and a pizza to go because a great Neapolitan makes nice lunch). Shared everything family style.
Pacing was good considering the emphasis on not spending too much time in restaurants right now. Not too fast nor slow.
We sought help choosing a wine to pair with our menu selections. The server helped us arrive at a unique white that was very interesting, new to both of us white that paired nicely - though not particularly amazing on its own (to me) I loved the education and experience.
Osteria was lovely as always. We ate outside which is why I noted the noise level as moderate...there was some street noise, but it did not interfere with easy conversation. The staff was elegant and helpful, and the food was delicious. We were there for half price bottle night, which was an added bonus! Osteria has always been a favorite, and in this new version during COVID, they continue to shine.
