ABOUT US Our Story

A refreshing departure from the usual restaurant clichés. Osteria serves crowd-pleasing Italian fare that is both affordable and fuss free. Literally meaning ‘Authentic Italian Ristorante’, Osteria is a humble homage to the great Italian taverns of New Yorks Little Italy -- an insular Neopolitan village in the heart of Manhattan. Long a haven for immigrant Italian families from the old country, Little Italy is fast becoming an endangered community - getting even littler in recent years.

An inspired place with a rich and notorious history, Little Italy is where old-school Italian recipes became influenced by the other prominent immigrant communities and where much of traditional Italian food reigns as street food.

A lot more than just pizza and pasta, the menu at Osteria consists of down-home dishes like the eggplant parmesan, the chicken Milanese, grilled steak and fresh fish options.

Kick start your meal with some fresh and zesty antipasti such as calamari fritti, Sicilian arancinis or a classic caprese with plum tomatoes that will have you purring.

The open exhibition kitchen is the focal point of Osteria, where the hustle and bustle of the kitchen fills the space with a convivial glow. The ambience is a glow with checkered table cloths, hanging industrial lights, low-beamed ceilings, open exhibition kitchen and exposed brick walls peppered with black and white photos of a by-gone era.
