Superb. Not only were we able to be seated immediately, without a reservation, on a very busy NYE, albeit at the bar, which has its own special ambiance, but we received our meals quite fast. The food here, one of our top 5 restaurants in town is so very tasty. I ordered scrumptious veal with mashed potatoes. Our appetizer, calamari... More

Ate dinner here with friends on a weekday night at the recommendation of a local. Entrance to the restaurant is a subtle door that looks more like a side entrance, then you walk downstairs into a very dark, small restaurant. The owner is extremely friendly and ordered for us. The food was delicious, from the pastas and antipasto to the... More

Background: I've been in the restaurant industry for a decade as well as a restaurant customer for my entire life. I'm really not that picky, but value perception and decent service matter to me. We chose to visit this restaurant because it's the only notable Italian restaurant in this part of downtown Cleveland. Food ordered: • House Chardonnays • Cream... More

I must say that I was not prepared for a non menu, chef selected dining experience. This led for many at the table to be uncomfortable and hungry (for the picky eaters). However for the venturous, it was absolutely incredible. The service and food was great however they should have accommodated the more picky eater as well as give a... More

We arrived as a party of five, pretty late for a weekday. I took a couple of steps down to what I thought was the restaurant. Wasn't sure if I was in the right place. When the server opened the door, I didn't get a good feel for the place. Pretty dark, nothing fancy looking. However, the food was great.... More

It's small, quiet (unless they have live music), and good entree and appetizer choices.If you don't order the asparagus soup, you don't know what you are missing.Good sauces for the pasta dishes in the right portions.

Wonderful food, the bolognese was my husband's favorite and mine was the orecchiette with Italian sausage. Tiramisu and cannolis were very authentic. Great service, great atmosphere.

I took my boyfriend to Osteria for valentine's day. The food was excellent! We got the antipasto platter for an appetizer, which was amazing. I had the sausage orrichette, which I plan to go back for. He has the prosciutto wrapped port tenderloin and loved it. The only comment I would have is to try to get a table far... More

Went to Osteria for my wife's birthday on a Friday night with a party of 23. I wanted to let everyone know of the excellent time we had there. From the service, to the food, and even the entertainment, everything was top notch. The entire night was a huge success and I would recommend the restaurant to everyone. Looking forward... More

I had the ravioli, my better half had the pasta with bold sausage. Wow! We didn't have reservations so we sat at the bar. The bartender helped us choose a chianti and we had the best Italian dinner and we've been to Italy. I highly recommend this place and we will be back. It's only a 2 hour drive!
