    First visit certainly not the last

    Sadly due to the current covid situation my husband and I were the only ones in the restaurant the lunchtime we visited. It was a belated wedding anniversary meals to ourselves after yet another lockdown! The food was beautiful and tasty, just the right size portion, excellent table service and a very safe and clean environment. We will be heading back as soon as we are able to.

    Food was delicious

    Food was delicious, services was slightly slow. We were on 30% off bit when bill arrived it wasn't took off, so we reminded the waitress. She came back with new bill which still wasn't correct. As they took 15% off then another 15% off and she said they don't have a 30% off button on till.we paid it bit I did explain doing this doesn't add up to 30% off the total bill.

    Another great Christmas Eve

    For many years now I have dinner with my now grown up children on Christmas Eve in Glasgow City Centre. Despite the restrictions caused by the pandemic, Osteria Italiana enabled us to have another enjoyable experience. We are very grateful.It was populated by families who also clearly enjoyed the evening

    Something special

    The first thing I noticed was how lovely the décor was. Staff made us feel very comfortable. The fixed menu was limited but quality of food was great. We will be returning to try the a la carte.
