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.
Its the ambience and the phenomenal service for me.
Paul, our waiter was LEGIT. His recommendations were on point and I will forever thank him for convincing us to go with the Tiramisu. Though tbh, maybe we didn't need that much convincing.
I got the margherita pizza and my friend got the braised pork. Margherita pizza was good, mozzerella was decadent, but I personally could have used more sauce. My friend only left the bone on the braised pork, so safe to say it was a winner.
Will DEFINITELY be back (especially on a Sunday, bottles of wine are half off!)
Second time here in two weeks, although not as "great" as the first time we went since reopening, very close second.
We went there for Happy Hour. We had the Lombardo pizza and the francoboli ravioli, both were fantastic. The margaritas were okay. But we will definitely come back in the future.
Great experience! The greenhouse was lovely. Food was excellent highlights were mortadella pizza
And boar bolognese pasta. Our server was so friendly and helpful we will be back!
For our first restaurant meal since the pandemic began, Osteria mostly lived up to our past experiences when it was a Vetri restaurant. Outstanding pizza with Tallegio, mushrooms and caramelized onions. Terrific Parma appetizer. My husband loved the candele (wild boar) Bolognese with pasta. My linguini with clam sauce was fresh and light, though not memorable. Wines by the glass were well-paired with the food. We skipped dessert but received a delicious semifreddo with lit sparkler to share, as we were celebrating our birthdays. We will return!
Had a wonderful dinner at Osteria! Food and service were excellent. Will definitely be back.
Amazing! We did the happy hour menu outside on the patio for a girls night. Service was amazing, outdoor area was beautiful, and the food was delicious and reasonably priced!
We sat in the outside garden, which was beautiful and we felt very safe.
Food and drinks were delicious and the service was excellent.
Hadn't been back to Osteria for over a year because of a bad food experience,
but they definitely have worked that all out.
Again, one of my favorite restaurants.
Good food good service even after the corona which shows quality
Amazing food and great service!
Amazing all around. We tried a bunch of things off the happy hour menu and everything was delicious. We ordered tuna carpaccio, prosciutto board, meatballs, ravioli, the pizza with the egg and sausage, tiramisu, and pistachio gelato. Would recommend all of those dishes. Love the ambiance, very cute. Service was also great and on point, our server checked on us regularly and food came out at the right times. Will definitely return.
Great happy hour!
First time back in a while, no real entrees, but great pizza, antipastos and pasta dishes. Each was fantastic. Wine was nice and I had the best Manhattan I think I ever had that night. TH outside seating area is very well done, you feel you are in a large beautiful alcove of the building. They have heaters all ready for when it gets chilly out. We will certainly be back soon! Our waitress was also a pleasure.
Menu limited compared to time before Covid but everything delicious. Beautiful outside seating. Not enough servers for the numbers of guests. Go! This place is great.
The Octopus was delicious. But our favorite by far was the Lasagnetta. We did order the Venison. Though we liked the taste, the meat itself was a little tough. We complained to the manager. The took the venison off of our bill. And brought us out another Lasagnetta in it's place. The general manager was very nice. And made sure the problem was resolved and personally brought out the Lasagnetta himself. We were very pleased with the service. We would return!
I was recently introduced to Osteria, and the service, food and value is excellent. Especially for happy hour, it’s. It just the happy drinks but the food that is so worth it. They’ve gained a customer!
We had a fabulous meal at Osteria. They also handled everything beautifully under the current circumstances, social distancing, table time limits, masks required anywhere beyond your table. The manager and staff were accommodating, polite and very helpful. Great time!
Great outdoor dining spot with great food to match.
Went to happy hour for a date, drinks and food were delicious and the prices were great! Beautiful ambiance
It was nice to get back to Osteria since Covid lockdown. Osteria is as good as ever! The service was excellent, the food; outstanding, and atmosphere wonderful.
Beautiful restaurant, excellent service, great food. Can’t wait till full menu is back.
Not only was
Amazing waitress and the food was fabulous
We had a delicious early dinner of small plates for happy hour. Our waiter was very efficient and assisted us with a unique drink selection. This is a great value!
Always a favorite
A bit pricey but really delicious food and friendly and helpful staff!
The outside dining was very nice with plenty of social distancing between all parties. The new heat lamps were a welcome addition.
Food and service good. A little disappointing menu has changed since the virus and reopening.
Great outdoor setting. Good excellent as always. Server was not very good.
food average, drinks great.
So good! Loved everything.
It was the best happy hour experience I've had in a while.
Unfortunately this has been one of my worst dinner experiences ever in philadelphia . There was plastic wrapping in my desert, both pasta dishes were sub par . I had always looked forward to eating here but this was a huge let down . Maybe they have staffing issues due to the Coronavirus. But it is not excuse for bad food or poor service
So happy that it's back open during covid! Was a little disappointed it wasn't their full menu but very happy with the food as usual.
Osteria is our favorite restaurant in the city and go-to to celebrate anything. Great service, amazing food, decent value
Excellent happy hour
