Definitely one of our favorite restaurants in Philadelphia is Chef Marc Vetri's Osteria. The food is simply wonderful! Our latest meal there started with a sharing of the spit-roasted porchetta, tonnato, arugula, celery and parmigiano. It's not something we would usually order, but we wanted...More

We went with high expectations based on a friend's glowing recommendations. It was a busy Friday night, but our food was just ok, not as wonderful as we were hoping for. Particularly, all our choices were very salty.

Start with valet parking at $18. Sip on a small glass of wine that costs what a bottle costs at the State store. Then suffer through a mediocre meal that costs more than it's worth. No thanks! Avoid this place in a city loaded with...More

Please go here! This might have been the best meal I ever had in my life and I'm a huge foodie. I had the duck and rabbit and omg it was spectacular. We also got the octopus as an appetizer and it was amazing.

As I recall, there was valet parking. We took a taxi and did not have to use valet parking. Please call the restaurant to verify.

Description
"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."
