We made our reservation noting that it was our anniversary. We were seated promptly, but there was never any acknowledgement of our special occasion during or after dinner. We left disappointed although the food and service were fine.

The food was too mediocre to be that expensive. It was our anniversary, and even though we told them this when booking, they sat us next to the bathroom (with MANY open tables available).

I LOVE Osteria! I’ve been living in Palo Alto my whole life and it’s the best Italian food in the Bay Area. The starters and salads are all delicious. The fresh warm bread and olive oil is to die for. And the pasta is the closest thing to tasting like Italy! The servers are all so attentive and kind. Great ambience for a date too. I can’t recommend this place more highly!!

We had a fabulous meal at Osteria. The food, a pasta dish and the halibut special, were cooked to perfection, and the pistachio gelato for dessert was amazing! The service was very friendly but extremely slow - it seemed like they were short the evening we went. But the food was worth waiting for.

This has been a go to place for me since 1987. The food is always the best and now with the association to The Grandview in San Jose, the farm fresh ingredients are much appreciated. As always have some delicious rotating specials.

The staff as always was great,

The wine menu has changed a lot over the past year and the wines per glass has narrowed and rotates. The wine by the bottle list has definitely expanded. $25.00 per bottle corkage if you bring your own bottle.

We were there early so it was uncrowded (usually packed when we walk by) and quiet. Food was good, not fabulous, but very nicely presented. Bread came out steaming with the usual olive-infused olive oil - a great way to start. What made it a great experience was the waitress - over 20 years experience, clearly loving her work and her customers.

I had a perfect rendition of Petrale Sole, with enough for a take home second meal. The minestrone soup at the start was $17.50, and on reflection, was value received. My wife’s spinach ricotta ravioli was tender yet with a good chew and not pasty. She gave me a taste and I wanted more. We had a lovely romantic time.

Staff was friendly and we were seated a few mins after our reservation time. Our main entrees did take quite a while to finally reach our table as it was Saturday and the place was packed. We would likely come back and dine again here.

Always greeted by a warm welcome at the door at this restaurant.
The Tagliarini Verde Con Gamberetti was a very flavorful and a creamy shrimp pasta dish. Our host suggested to add mushrooms, a fabulous suggestion. The scallops special was well executed with veggies and polenta, cooked to perfection. The chocolate hazelnut flan was an excellent recommendation by our host too. Tiramisu was never a disappointment.

Our first dining experience there was quite good as we really enjoy the gnocchi and scallops. The salad was too heavily dressed, but the tiramisu was very good - price was high for value of food. Our second experience was disappointing. The caesar salad was okay. However, the two veal dishes were quite disappointing. Tiramisu was quite good. We will not be back as the prices for the food and the quality of the dishes are not worth the price.

This was our first time dining at Osteria.

Food was marvelous ! I have a real dislike for restaurants that serve the food warm. Osteria served our pastas piping hot and I absolutely loved it.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Osteria for a wonderful Italian dining experience.

It has been many years since we’ve eaten at Osteria. It was always our favorite. There must have been a change in ownership. The place was nearly empty at lunchtime. Only one party of 8 was there when we 3 arrived and only 6 additional people came before we left. The entrees all were delicious, however, the vegetables were poor. They no longer serve those wonderful tender baby carrots. They still use the same spices, but they now cut large carrots into sticks which were hard and tough and difficult to eat along with the chewy green beans. The prices were ridiculous for lunchtime. We now assume they use the same menu for lunch and dinner. Entrees were $26.50 but dessert was even worse. The ‘special’ of the day was a fruit tart. The crust was so hard it could not be cut into and the custard filling under the fruit was all a runny liquid. In essence it was $14 for a 3” serving of berries. This is nothing like our previous experiences when the owner would often make a special dessert from his home country which was out of this world. I believe the decrease in food quality and the increase in food prices are the reasons for the lack of clientele. To drink we had water and also ordered one coke. Our bill for this lunch was $130. Also, we shared on our reservation we were celebrating an anniversary, but there was no recognition of any kind mentioned. We are sad to say we do not plan to return and we question how long they will stay in business.

The quality of the food has gone down over the years. It’s been a long time since we were last there and we didn’t enjoy the food as much. There were six people in our party, we were there for a birthday. I had the carpaccio and the scampi, two favorites, and they were awesome as usual. But the veal was ordered by two different people and two different types of veal dishes and neither meal was very good. Everyone said the food was just OK

The only negative issue I experienced is that I ordered the meatball appetizer, but didn't eat it since the salad I ordered was quite sizeable, so I asked if I could take it home. When I got home, the package contained some sort of a polenta lasagna dish, NOT my meatballs! I think you mixed up my take home with someone else's take home.

It felt like the waiters were overwhelmed with the crowd. We were not even asked if we want desert and the invoice was dropped at our table. When we left there were many empty tables. I could not understand why they were in such a hurry hurry.
