Meal was good but expected a spectacular dining experience . Salad was just pulled from a mixed bag of greens with a few tomatoes thrown in & the house dressing was a marginal oil based bland Italian. Requested a different dressing but none was available . Although food was good , price was very expensive for what was delivered ,... More

My first visit here but the others in the family had been before and said it was great. Service was impeccable. I had eggplant parmigiana and it was lovely. Not greasy or fried. Lightly covered in sauce. Wonderful wonderful. We also ordered clam linguine and the chef special. Everything was super tasty. Wine selection plentiful too. Really nice people. Will... More

Osteria is one of the treasures of the mountain .Few Italian Restaurants anywhere can match it. The food and service rivals five-far restaurants. The setting is rustic mountain, but the food is anything but. If you are in Toxaway or Cashiers be sure to go.

tripadvisor have been consistently great for this restaurant; combine that with the crowd that was in the restaurant, my wife and I were looking forward to an excellent meal. We were disappointed. The food was just ordinary. My wife's veal parm was OK ; my cannelloni was far too rich for my tastes. The waiter saw I wasn't happy and... More

We loved this restaurant! The people were friendly, the service was great and the food was delicious! We were too full for desert so we got coffee. It was amazing and came with the most yummy little cookie that was the perfect little bite of something sweet that I needed.

We enjoyed our finest meal of our visit, one that would be wonderful anywhere. Each course was excellent, mussels, Veal parmigiana and Veal with gorgonzola/mushroom/crème sauce---each outstanding, with a wonderful tiramisu to finish the evening. Service was outstanding. If I owned a restaurant, I would want to hire your head waiter. Someone here sets a great expectation and it's delivered.

Finding a fancy Italian restaurant in the middle of nowhere mountains is a gem. The veal dishes are so rich and creamy and such wonderful flavors. I had a nice salmon but I didn't care for the rich tomatoes gravy. Tiramisu was good but the spumoni ice cream was so fantastic. We love this place and went twice in one... More

If I had to describe this restaurant in just one word it would be "WOW". We have a vacation home about 5 miles away in Lake Toxaway. This is our favorite and from the volume of business it appears that the rest of the world agrees. The service is superb the wine list very adequate and the food is simply... More
