We had a wonderful lunch. The staff were welcoming and friendly and the service excellent. I ordered wild mushroom risotto and it was delicious. I would highly recommend Osteria and am like the king forward to my next visit. Great view over the Barbican too.

Dissapointed. Food very salty, so salty that I wasn't able to finish the beef pasta. Service non existent - took a while to catch a waiter every time we wanted to order more drinks although the restaurant was almost empty. Set menu deal not worth the price plus very expensive drinks. The only plus was it was quiet and with a nice view. Will not be back.
