Nice lunch in relaxed surroundings

This is a restaurant with very relaxed vibes and good food. 

We started with Schiacciata truffle, which was a lovely crusted bread stuffed with truffled topping, and which was truly delicious. We also ordered a burata special - while expensive at $38 before taxes, it had a nice big chunk of burata cheese, though it could have done with a bit more ham.

We had two pasta dishes, the Orecchiette pork and the special tuna pasta for the day. The pork dish was done in saffron sauce and was well liked, while the tuna, which had pine nuts in it, was okay, though was also on the pricey side at $32.

The braised beef was recommended by the server in lieu of the roasted chicken. It was braised in beer and came with a side of mashed potato, was tender, but was also a little dry.

Desserts were too sweet for me, though some of the party liked them.  We had the panna cotta with caramel (the best dessert), a Zuppa Inglese and a dessert of the day, which was something like a meringue. 

Staff are mostly of Italian descent and service is pretty good. Parking can be limited, so you might need to wait for a

A couple of friends had been to Italian Osteria and recommended it. Finally got a chance to visit with a friend and we were not disappointed. We ordered the Porchetta and Burrata starters, and pepperoni pizza and parma ham pizza as mains.
 The portions were good, and taste was spot-on.
 The pork belly is definitely a must-have, with aromatic meat and good crackling.
 The parma ham and pepperoni used were excellent.
 An uncommon fact about this restaurant: they serve wine in 1/4L format as they dispense from kegs. I thought it was an excellent fact because it caters for smaller groups and also patrons who may want to drink different types of wine as the night continues.
 If I had to pick a negative, it would be the service. While we had reservations, we were made to wait. Furthermore a couple of service staff were curt and did not give accurate descriptions of the menu items. This definitely needs improvement.
 Overall, a place I will definitely return to.

i 've been a few times to italian osteria and i think
it's time to give this place a thumbs up, simply for
the fact that it is more than rare the chance to find a real italian restaurant (for restaurant i mean everything around the concept of restaurant so the service attitude, the settings, the atmosphere and the food) overseas...more than 80% of italian restaurant in other countries are simply dealing
with the local taste or suggesting food that is not even far from what real italian food is, but this one is simply the same as what i found in italy, since you enter the place you see italian Handsome faces, and when the food comes..well i will leave it to you folks!! A must try!
