    I've eaten here a bit and everything was delicious except for one of the new dishes - maccheroncini - which is a sausage pasta. The sausage was pinkish didn't seem cooked and didn't taste good either, in a pale acidic sauce. I actually asked the waitress to check with the kitchen that the sausage was cooked, she said it was so guess that is the dish. No one at the table liked it.

    We are massive foodies and have experienced a new Sydney restaurant every weekend varying from fine dining and more casual dining spaces. This was a shock experience for us. Service and ambience was fine. However, the food and value was just not done right at all - we left feeling extremely disappointed having chosen this space for our anniversary dinner. The majority of the food was too salty. Portions were NOT appropriate, definitely not share size, they were so small and my husband and I were left very hungry although we ordered 6 'share plates'. The flavours were bland. Some of the food ideas were just executed very poorly and tasted horrible. We could not believe the price we paid given all these shortfalls on quality. Big room for improvement.

    Wait staff were lovely. Went for the 70$ pp set menu. The entrees were nice, but the mains were essentially pub food. Perhaps not even to the same culinary standard as pub food. Imagine sitting opposite your partner, excited to celebrate your anniversary with a big dry schnitty and a side salad of chopped iceberg lettuce and peas.

    5 people seated on a table of 4. Service was slow, inattentive and forgot part of our order. Was expecting more for the price. Menu is fairly limited so not so good for kids.

    Amazing food, fabulous venue, reasonably priced …but staff need an injection of personality. Very little interaction from the waitress who continually plonked down our food each course and ran off. A little more time was required between courses to allow for enjoyment, rather than what felt like a run round the table.

    Excllent service and excellent food. We booked the set menu and they were super accommodating of the kids in the group. The balcony was beautiful on a spring day overlookong the oval and the interior also beautiful. Live music which was such a bonus. We are local and will definitely be back. Service is so important and our host was excellent.

    The place and service was great. We had the banquet and 2 our of 7 were great 3 were average and 1 was not so good. The alcohol menu need some attention with lack of good beers and they pre-mix the cocktails. The food was all well prepared and if your a foodie it is probably the place to be as it is different to other Italian restaurants but for all the hype we were disappointed. Service was excellent though.

    We enjoyed a long Sunday lunch at Osteria - excellent food and Italian wines and good live background music which wasn’t too loud. The table next to us was, but this wasn’t the restaurant’s fault. Get a balcony table if you can.

    i have eaten at Osteria Coogee several times and we have our works christmas function there too. The staff have always been friendly and helpful and go above and beyond to give us a good experience. The food is very good, tastes great, delivered and presented well and is good value for money. I am so pleased they have survived through covid and are still with us. I recommend them to many of my friends and associates.

All perfectly sized dishes to share and very tasty Italian flavours. Great tunes in the background and an overall wonderful dining experience! Will be back again soon! Cheers 🤗

    Food was excellent BUT we were sat between 2 noisy groups. These groups arrived after us and we didn't feel comfortable to ask to move. There were other tables available. Unfortunately, lots of restaurants place guests together to make it easy for staff. Not a great outcome for guests.
