Booked Osteria for a pre-concert meal. To say we were impressed is an understatement! So much variety on the set menu, great wine list & exceptional value for money!!! Each dish was full of flavour & cooked to perfection. Top Mayfair restaurants would struggle to compete with this place. To top it all a charismatic Manager & pleasant staff.

Very good meals and very good service. Advised waiter we were given dessert we did not order, and he gave us a free bottle of wine as a goodwill gesture. Left as happy customers!!

The setting was lovely, and the menu promising. We were a little disappointed with the service. We were told that our ordered dish (chicken) would take 20 minutes. We agreed to order olives and bread which then arrived at the same time as our mains. Beside water, no attempt was made to take our drinks order either. Staff were friendly but not always effective.
