I come here often, the food is simply amazing! I always struggle with the menu, all being in Italian. The service can be Hit!! or miss...The price point is average and the location superb.

Five of us enjoyed our dinner here immensely. We deliberately ordered 5 different entrees so we could taste everything and we enjoyed each one of them! Attentive service and good dessert as well.

We first passed by Osteria Monte Grappa while wandering around downtown and ruled it out for dinner. We've seen so many mediocre Italian eateries that we callously wrote it off without a thought. Then, we ran into one local that highly recommended it. Then our hotel's front desk clerk highly recommended it. So, when dinnertime rolled around, we found ourselves... More

During a day trip to celebrate our anniversary, my boyfriend and I decided on lunch at Osteria Monte Grappa, and it was a perfect choice! While the patio was apparently full, we were taken to a nice table inside the main room. Splurging, I ordered the capellini carbonara and it was perfection: the simple ingredients (eggs, pancetta, cheese, cream, and... More

It has a very inventive menu and sitting in the back patio on a warm day is great. The portions are large the service is prompt and the prices are fair. I've been there a half-dozen times and never been dissapointed.

A real down to earth local place that also is somewhat upscale. But still homey. Everyone we know recommended it so our expectations were high but it lived up to its reviews. Great homemade pasta and everything else was fantastic as well.

Great little italian reataurant. The mussels with clams were very good. Pasta dishes we're excellent. Olive oil they served was great. Howvever the bread was lacking for an italian restaurant.

If you are looking for a trattoria in Tuscany....this is not for you. But if you need an Italian meal out, this is the bets we have to offer for a middle of the road trip restaurant. The premier place would be at OVIS's Olivella...fantastic. Their menu could do with some updating, and the chefs could put a little more... More

The salads, seafood, and pastas were all excellent. Note that the crostini appetizer is four huge pieces - a good one to share. There is something for everyone on the Osteria's menu. The wine list is limited, but the Italian reds that are on offer are solid choices. The service is not professional, but it is friendly and willing. The... More
