We had dinner here while visiting the Sapphire Valley. The food was very good, but the atmosphere and waiter were just odd. The host paid much attention to what appeared to be regulars while the rest of us were largely ignored. Waiter was just odd, difficult to understand and robotic. All this would be fine if the prices were not... More

One of our favorite restaurants in the Lake Toxaway area on NC. The food is always fresh and tasty. The waiters are all first class and are very attentive. We have never had a bad meal and we have eaten here over 50 times.

My, this restaurant is a treat. I am now planning how I can come and stay long enough to frequent the restaurant again. No, I am not related in any way. I just appreciate good Italian food with a European feel that feels REAL.

Meal was good but expected a spectacular dining experience . Salad was just pulled from a mixed bag of greens with a few tomatoes thrown in & the house dressing was a marginal oil based bland Italian. Requested a different dressing but none was available . Although food was good , price was very expensive for what was delivered ,... More

Lightly covered in sauce. Wonderful wonderful. We also ordered clam linguine and the chef special. Everything was super tasty. Wine selection plentiful too. Really nice people. Will... More

Osteria is one of the treasures of the mountain .Few Italian Restaurants anywhere can match it. The food and service rivals five-far restaurants. The setting is rustic mountain, but the food is anything but. If you are in Toxaway or Cashiers be sure to go.

tripadvisor have been consistently great for this restaurant; combine that with the crowd that was in the restaurant, my wife and I were looking forward to an excellent meal. We were disappointed. The food was just ordinary. My wife's veal parm was OK ; my cannelloni was far too rich for my tastes. The waiter saw I wasn't happy and... More
