We have been using Osteria for our corporate dinners for several years and it's been wonderful! Their event coordinators are on top of things and extremely professional. The menu is outstanding, the service excellent, and the ambiance of the restaurant is intimate and relaxing. When you have the best in Chicago, why go anywhere else!

Came here while on business. Was seated right away. Ordered drinks and was served good bread. Interesting menu. Started with a ceaser salad and a capris salad. Ceaser was very good for $11 and the capris salad was also very good. Mario chicken with broccollini was very good and was all breast meat. The risotto was good and the seafood... More

This restaurant was recommended to my husband and I by our Lyft driver who has been living in Chicago for over 20 years. It certainly lived up to the hype! The food is absolutely phenomenal! The bread and olive oil served before the meal alone was incredible. For an appetizer we really enjoyed the grilled octopus. My husband loved his... More

I ordered a specialty pizza that came with an egg on top. It was really good! The crust is very thin. I was staying at the hotel so I ordered it to go. The service was fast and friendly.
