Quaint Italian restaurant owned by Chef Christian Crostelli. Excellent menu with fresh homemade pastas, seafood, and miscellaneous meats. Every week new delicious surprises. Very professional and friendly service. They bake their own bread. Great Italian wines list. I usually let the maitre decide which wine matches my meal. Always on the mark. Do not miss the broiled octopus, ragu rabbit... More

I went to L'Osteria for Valentine's dinner and it certainly did not impress. My boyfriend and I both choose the "Menu San Valentino" which included degustation portions of appetizers, a main dish and a dessert. I had the cod which was dry and bland and my boyfriend had the lamb which was average. The staff was all over the place... More

Christian the owner/chef has a delicious menu, a mind blowing wine list, and interacts with all customers throughout the course of their dinner. Making a choice from the outstanding menu for each course was hard enough, but to then get a surprise ricotta bread and butter pudding as a "thank you" dessert took the biscuit. Amazing restaurant.
