Well, we were recommended this restaurant but I didn't expect it to be as good as it was. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed (nothing pushy) and shown to a table in the very busy but well spaced and designed restaurant. Our waitress gave us our menus and warned about the size you for the pizzas before leaving us to decide n what we wanted.

The food! My goodness! We had the garlic bread with tomatoes and rosemary to start. This was enormous, beautiful thin base with perfect fresh flavours and not at all greasy. Then came the pizza ... At the advise of the waitress we went for one to share (BBQ chicken). It was just as well as the pizza too up the whole table! Again the base was stunning and the flavours were all fresh and delicious. We couldn't fit in any puddings but the looked amazing.

The service was great and although they were extremely busy, at no point were we made to feel like we were n the way. They have an amazing open kitchen which is entertainment in itself.

We will definitely be back!

Wow, thank you for your lovely comments on our restaurant and we are happy to hear you are enjoying the L’Osteria experience.
Our pizzas are large, 18” to be exact, and they are great for sharing, as you can have different toppings on each half.
We very much look forward to welcoming you back for more pizza e pasta with a touch of amore!

Went here beginning of February and had great meal with excellent service, it wasn't very busy then, was on a weekday. Huge pizza and prompt food and very good value. Really good experience.

Went on Good Friday expecting the same and was sorely disappointed, took my parents after telling them how great it was and looked a right plum as it was pretty poor. Got given a buzzer and told to wait at bar and get a drink whilst waiting, the wait would be 20 minutes they advised. was stood at bar for 15 minutes unable to get a drink as barmen was busy serving waiters orders.

before we could order a drink we were taken upstairs to a table, it was then a further 10 minutes before we could get our drinks order in, 5 minutes later drinks arrive and they don't take food order. It was clear they could not cope with the high numbers and We should have been turned away. It took over half an hour to get a drink 45 minutes to get starters and we had to wait a further 45 minutes to get main.

Would not revisit and would recomend trying other Italians chains who are more conistant. If you are gambling man/woman and it doesnt look too busy by all means roll the dice as when this place is on its game it is a cut above the rest.

We had my husbands 40th birthday meal here, 13 of us in total. I cannot fault this restaurant at all. Lovely atmosphere, location and views of the Southampton walls looked lovely all lite up. Service was very good, it was busy when we were there but this did not affect the service. Food came out and everything was correct, rare for large groups of people eating out. The pizzas are huge and the pastas are very tasty. I would recommend this restaurant for the good value food, service, and the atmosphere, views.
