The food is excellent & imaginative. Cooked to perfection & served well. Portions appropriate to savour the flavours without feeling too full. Atmosphere & lighting just right. Can get a bit noisy but vibrant.

Shush! Do not tell anyone about this place.....it is amazing. I think this is possibly one of the most delicious meals I have ever had. It is exciting to find an Italian not churning out run of the mill dishes. This still is what your pasta dreams are made of.

I feel very fortunate to live a short walk away as this is the kind of restaurant I would happily trek across London for.

I thoroughly recommend the olive leaf pasta, beef carpaccio and the burrata al forno.....oh and the freshly cooked breads.

Oh and the staff.....excellent. They are attentive without being in your face. Love them.

Lovely restaurant - lovely food. Our rez was for 7pm, and was told they would need the table back at 9pm which I agreed to. However the service was super slow (which we didn't mind too much), but objected to been asked to leave when we were not finished with dessert. I thought it was rude and told them so. If they put a two hour limit on a table they should step up their service to accommodate their own time constraints. That being said it is a lovely quirky restaurant and worth a visit.

Ostuni was amazing as always! The Lobster pasta was the best we've had so far, the pasta were fresh and al dente, our drinks were great, and the hostess and the staff were friendly and attentive as always! We can't recommend Ostuni enough! This is our favourite Italian in London!

The food is always very good, the service (save the maitre d/manager who makes sure she speaks to everyone and is charming) is less good. Drinks arrived after the starters not before, and generally everything is super slow (left with pudding menus for 20
Mins etc)

Despite this I do go back... the food is good, ditto the ambience. The service just needs to get better

Music choices were sometime inappropriate to the atmosphere / too loud - can be intrusive to conversation.

We were also asked a few too many time/ too soon if our food was ok. Good gesture but only needed once.

Lunch. We had sea bass which at £18 came without a side. One plate was badly chipped, so I had to get it replaced. Total rip off for what it is.

This is the 3rd or 4th time we've been to Ostuni.
The ambience is great as ever but the food options haven't changed in the last couple of years and are quite limited.

We had one of the best lobster spaghetti in London at Ostuni! The past were fresh and the lobster was tasty and excellently cooked! The green olive past dish with the truffles is also a must try! The staff were very friendly and accommodating! We shall be coming back very soon! Also, beautiful outdoor space. This place is perfect for a date night out in the summer time.

The setting was nice, especially as the weather was good and all the doors to the terrace were open. Pasta was excellent. My husband thought the lamb dish was uninteresting, but that the other dishes, wine and charm made up for it.

the menu was varied and featured several Puglian specialities not often available. well executed and presented. Starters were shared - the squid/courgette was stand out - the mains were excellent and puddings delicious. Lovely outside space.

Had a great lunch here and the service was excellent and also unobtrusive . We had two years of chat to catch up on so it was great that we were allowed to relax and talk. Food was delicious and the menu had interesting Italian regional dishes we had never tried before but which we really enjoyed. We even stopped talking to remark on the quality ! They let us sit over several coffees and made no fuss about how long we lingered. A really perfect afternoon.

Went to Ostuni for lunch on Sunday. Staff were very friendly. We decided to order a mixture of small plates. The braised octopus and aubergine among other dishes were superb. There was a comprehensive wine list. The children with us managed to devour the chocolate fondant dessert.
There were a few items unavailable and it would have been useful to know when we sat down.
All in all a good meal with good service.

Way too noisy as people are packed in closely. A mother was playing cards with her young son inches from our noses. Ambience not any better with loud music piped in. The burrata in tomato sauce was good, the orchiette were dreadfully doughy -- my companion left half of it. Spicy spaghetti and shrimp was fine, but I was too distracted to really enjoy it House red excellent. Service attentive, but waitpersons so busy it was mechanical, unfriendly.

We won't go back.

I love this restaurant and have been here a number of times. Food is great, the service is friendly and attentive and the interior homely and relaxing. Outdoor seating on a summers evening is also lovely! I would recommend this restaurant for both everyday dining and special occasions.

Food is not great at all. Everything was so greasy. Pasta was swimming in oil. Saute potatoes​ also greasy. Food also overpriced. Unimpressive lamp chops with gritty spinach and greasy potatoes priced at £25. We won't be coming back again.

Otsuni queens park is located on a quiet cobbled street in Queen's park. My wife and I have been a few times - service is friendly, and the food comes very quickly - almost too quick. Nice selection of starters and main courses - we chose 4 starters and 1 main to share. We particularly like the Shaved salad of Polignano carrot, white asparagus, radish, pomegranate, pecorino & truffle oil

Except for wine which was low level but not disgusting , food has been good for the litter bin. My partner's pasta was watery and miserable, my "mixed roast pork" good to feed my dog. I won't suggest Ostuni in a million years. They urgently need to change nearly everything here including service!

Quite disappointed by my second visit to Ostuni. The service was incredibly slow (took about an hour to get starters and 1.5hrs for main). The steak is probably reflective of the price but to be honest, I was hoping for more. On top of that, they had checked someone else into my reservation (?!). We live about a 3 min walk from the restaurant so will inevitably come again but really wish they'd up their game.

It's my local. Used to love it. Food has a gone down a lot! Portions smaller and smaller - asparagus salad is half the size it used to be. Tuna carpaccio still great!!!

I will probably go back to check in case it was a hiccup. Hope so! Chef was different, and right now I wouldn't recommend it :(

Been here a few times now, and it's really great. Authentic Italian food with top notch ingredients - everything tastes lovely and fresh. Ambience is a busy, trendy restaurant with wooden tables, white tiles and some rustic furniture as well. Very light with lots of windows and a nice outdoor bit too. Will for sure be back soon.
