Visited Osteria for one of their last sittings on a Sunday night. Service, food and wine great! Just what we wanted, something tasting homemade and easy.

Fresh Italian food served in a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Lots of daily special and an amazing-for-value set lunch available Monday to Friday! Great wine-list covering from the classic Barolo to the rarer Pecorino wine from Marches.
