AMAZING pizza! – YUM! we loved our pizza's - thin crust, fresh ingridients - just perfect :)
service was very friendly and attentive. We'll be back for more !
Great Pizza+Great Pasta+Reasonable Prices – A good place for a casual dinner-large pizza portion, great-tasting pasta & don't miss their weekday beer specials.
Best Pizza, amazing wine list and fantastic authentic specials... – I lived in Italy and I have to tell you this place is so close to authentic you forget where you are! The pizzas are fantastic, my personal favorite is the Prosciutto & Arugula, honestly its addictive. They have delicious, adventerous specials and their wine list is amazing. The wine list honestly has something for everyone and in a range of prices. Tuesdays they have half priced bottles of wine. Try the Illuminati... amazing!
Great Italian (better than Figo) – Osteria's been in my neighborhood for a long time, and I'm cursing myself for not trying it sooner. As a long time proponent of Figo for cheap, good Italian, I can easily say Osteria is now the place I visit for my default Italian fix.
Aside from a short wait (this place seems to stay relatively busy, almost all of the time), I've always been seated (inside) pretty quickly. The patio is a great option (especially in warmer months), but expect to wait if you really want a seat out there. Service is always very friendly & attentive, and the servers obviously know what they like. The wine list is adequate and features decent prices (I believe there's a 1/2 price bottle special on one day of the week).
The food: fantastic. The stand-outs: the bruschetta (flavorful and having perfect texture, the best I've ever had) and ravioli fritti are fantastic starters (I could almost sit and eat extra helpings instead of ordering an entree); of the pasta dishes I've tried, the Pollo Toscano is my absolute favorite (the lasagna and puttanesca are also good... I didn't care much for the Pesto Genovese). I haven't ordered a pizza yet, but they all look very tasty.
The only downside (fir me, anyway) is that the place is family friendly, and as such you'll occasionally encounter some screaming children (somehow amplified when you're sitting inside). However, I'll accept that as a necessary evil. I highly recommend Osteria, and encourage you to get over there and try it if you haven't already.
One of the best Italian resturaunts in Atlanta besides Figo Pasta – Osteria 832 has reasonable prices,reliable and excellent serbice, and it's in the great location of the Virginia-Highlands. I've only beent there once but I recommend to visit this resturaunt to anyone who wants to find a good Italian resturaunt in Atlanta. The only bad thing about Osteria is that it can get a little crowded at night, especially on the weekends.But I guess that's how all resturaunt are right?
Fast service -- too fast! – So the reasons why I like this place a lot are because the food is delicious, the waitstaff is very nice and laidback, and you never wait more than 20 minutes even at the height of dinner on a Saturday night. They have the most delicious gorgonzola sauce I've ever tasted, and their house wines, both red and white, are fabulous and SO cheap at 5.50 each. It would be perfect if the service weren't so fast! Yeah, that's right I said it. We Americans usually expect and demand fast service. But for me, going out to eat IS the evening's entertainment. I enjoy the experience as well as the food. There have been times when we've been in and out of Osteria within 30 minutes. It's just too fast. I would rather have to order another glass of wine and wait expectantly for my entree once the salad has been cleared away. Sometimes it makes me feel like they are shuffling us out on purpose just to turn the tables over. I try to ignore them as I dive headfirst into my plate of delicious pasta gorgonzola. :-)
Decent place – This restaurant was okay. I would say there is nothing at this place that you couldn't get at another pizza/"Italian" restaurant. I had the scampi, pretty good, but as another reviewer said there was a lot of oil on my scampi. I wouldn't go as far to say that it wasn't good, but there defintely is nothing special there. There is one thing that I noticed about this place when I was eating my food, the menu has cheap entrees. 10$ for a pizza, and 10$ for a bowl of scampi, that is not bad for the way things are at this restaurant. You get what you pay for that is for sure. My girlfriend had the prosciutto pizza, that had about 4 slices of prosciutto. The cheese was great, but the crust was a bit hard, but we all like different things. My scampi was great, they didn't skimp on the shrimp. The server was nice, and really no complaints. This is a great place to go and hang, but don't come here thinking you are going to get a memorable meal.
Mussels are awsome – I love the thin pizzas at Osteria. Also i keep coming back for the mussels. Only maggianos does them better. Now that it is not so hot out i will definately be hitting up osteria's patio more often.
Osteria 832 Not so much – Osteria is aesthically pleasing, the seating is comfortable, and the counter staff was friendly. I ordered the Proscutto Pizza, they have several, its one at the bottom of the menu for Ten bucks. It Was not good, they went crazy with rosemary and it was drenched in balsamic vinger. My girlfriend ordered the Tuscano chicken sandwich, she wasn't too thrilled with it either. I will give it another shot but the first impression of the food was not great.
Good Pizza & Pasta – Osteria 832 has simply prepared food that tastes good. The pizza is really thin crust with great flavor. The salads , fried calamari, and spinach dip are good. The pastas are also good, but could use more sauce. They are a little light on the sauces. Good wines to go with your meal.
