We had limited time and had an appetizer and pasta. We were well taken care of by a professional cheerful waiter who well accommodated our needs. Food was outstanding—octopus and ravioli, with a nice wine.

Amazing food, service and experience. Every dish is simple yet complex flavors and a bit unexpected. Delicious and unpretentious yet it feels like a splurge.

We dined at Osteria during a holiday trip to Philly and can't wait to go back. We each got the tasting menu and were blown away. The food, service and atmosphere was great. We can't wait to go back. We loved it!

Our first time here and we loved it! We tried both primo mushroom dishes (garganelli and ribiola) and they were fantastic. The wood grilled octopus was very good too. The food came in courses and we shared each dish. The wait staff was friendly and...More

I'd probably call to make sure -- but when I went it seemed relatively casual and no one made a fuss about people wearing jeans or what have you -- not " dressy"

"Convivial and inviting, Osteria's heart is its open main kitchen from which its award-winning menu of antipasti, homemade pastas, house-cured salumi, authentic Neapolitan and Roman-style pizzas, wood-grilled meats, seafood and decadent desserts are crafted. Drawing its inspiration from traditional osterias found in Northern Italy, Osteria is the realization of a dream Vetri Family partners Jeff Benjamin and Chefs Marc Vetri and Jeff Michaud had while standing amongst the grapes of the Ca'Marcanda vineyards in Tuscany. Since opening in 2007, Osteria has become one of the country's most critically acclaimed Italian restaurants, receiving a 3-out-of-4 bell review from the Philadelphia Inquirer, and earning Chef Michaud the 2010 James Beard Foundation Award for "Best Chef: Mid-Atlantic" for his work helming the kitchen."
