The Italian Osteria & Cheese Bar
Good restaurant, I really recommend that for couples
The food at the Italian Osteria was beyond what I had expected. The pasta dish I had, as well as the arancini were delicious. My group ordered the tiramisu with some excitement but were incredibly disappointed with the dessert. When I provided the feedback, the restaurant promptly took the dessert off our bill, much to our surprise.
The wife and I have been here a few times before. We enjoy the spaghetti w/meatballs and the carbonara. The East Van IPA on tap is my go to drink and my wife enjoys the sangria.
Thank you so much for your 5 star review! We look forward to having you back to The Italian again soon!
Our server Brielle was great first of all. The venue is very nice. the food was horrible though. We both got different pasta dishes, linguine and clams (Vongole) and the Alfredo spaghetti, and they had absolutely no flavour. It tasted like they just boiled the pasta and tossed some oil and spicy peppers on it. So my mouth was on fire but the pasta had no taste. Same with the alfredo, you could see there was sauce on there but it was completely plain. We got the charcuterie board as well, and that was great. For a restaurant that nice, and popular we thought we'd try it because some of our friends had been and liked it. I think the food needs to be held to higher standard. I am 100% italian, and italian's don't usually eat at italian restaurants, but even olive garden was better than this place. I don't if maybe one of the chefs was having a bad night, but we both left not feeling to good. Brielle had our pasta dishes covered by the restaurant, and offered us a free meal on our return. So thank you for the great service, but i think there is some improvement needed in the kitchen.
We would love to be able to follow up with your concerns. Please email us with your comments and feedback about your meals to email@example.com Thank you again Morgan M Guest Relations
The service was wonderful, and the food delicious! We’re definitely be back!
Thank you so much for your 5 star review and compliments! We look forward to having you back again soon!
Great place! Visited for a birthday and host/server were both very sweet. Cheese selection is amazing and I would definitely return.
Really enjoyed the risotto balls and butternut squash ravioli - not really a fan of the Tiramisu sphere...
Have the family meal. It was ao much delicious food.
COVID 19 Safeguards in place (sanitizing stations, PPE worn, social distancing of tables), Great tasting Italian pasta and pizza. Quick serving of meals. Check in by server after first bites. Reasonably priced.
Service couldve been better. However this restaurant did not follow any of the covid rules with 2 meter distancing. We were right next to two tables and could hear their whole conversation. I dont think they were comfortable that we were that close either.
Our server Briel was excellent! Genuinely friendly and attentive! Just wished we were not seated near washroom where ppl passed by us consistently during COVID. I recommend taking that table out.
Absolutely love the food and the service is always fantastic.
A minor complaint is that the restaurant is often not serving our favourite wines and cheeses. This is a minor complaint because it forces us to try different options and we've found new favourites.
My only other complaint is that the table-tops are marble and therefore cold to the touch.
Food was amazing!!
Food was super delicious as always and our server made our night even more enjoyable.
Great that you are open and felt safe inside with protocols. Server was very personable and checked in on us regularly. Food great as always!
Everything about this place was fantastic except for the noise level. I believe it may the tile floor. Our server Abby was perfect! Both the chef and the manager visited our table. The food was so good! Thank you for making our anniversary dinner special.
It’s always a great experience. I never have a complaint when I’m dining at the Italian. Absolutely love this restaurant.
Excellent food and service. We were seated right away with our on line reservation
We had a great experience!!! It was my daughters 12th birthday, the birthday card & dessert was a nice touch, definitely made her day!
Had a friendly, attentive server.
The food was delicious! Proper portions, served hot and all of us at once. Service was friendly and attentive. If I had to give criticism it is only minor; complimentary bread would be nice and the offer of grated cheese for the pasta would have been appreciated. Ability to order some Italian sodas is something my son had hoped for too.
We will definitely return and will recommend this restaurant to anyone. We all really enjoyed our yummy meals.
Quite possibly the best Italian food in the Valley. You won't regret anything on the menu!
Food and service were great. Ambience not as much as we were at a table in the middle. Other than that, it's very good value and we will be back.
The cheese board is excellent. Everything ordered was hot and very tasty. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Our first time and the service was amazing!! Akash made our night very enjoyable!! The food was also very good and had good portions, We will definitely be coming back to this restaurant!
Thank you so much for your compliments about your visit and your server! We look forward to having you join us again soon!
The service was outstanding! Julia was very attentive and helpful. The food was delectable ~ everything was delicious. We went for my birthday dinner and this is now our new favourite restaurant. From the appetizers [wagyu beef carpaccio and fritto misto], to the house salad, to the mains [spaghetti and meatballs, truffle rissotto and wild boar ragu] and dessert [tiramasu and lemon tart]... everything was mouthwatering. My family had a hard time deciding what was the most delicious - it was all amazing. Definitely going back!!
Great service, food was fantastic- started with the carpaccio than had the lasagna and pesto linguine- all very good
We’ll definitely be back
Thank you so much for your kind words! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your visit and were able to try out some of our delicious menu items!! We look forward to seeing you back again soon!
I Love This Place And The (Feast) Is To Dye For, Best Service In Town By Far
Everything was amazing. We felt the restaurant is taking all the necessary safety precautions during this covid pandemic. The service was great, and the food was delicious.
Thank you so much for your 5 star reviews and compliments about your visit to The Italian!! We look forward to having you join us again soon!
We had an excellent experience despite covid. It was clean and the staff was super friendly. The food was delicious. Wine was better.
We loved our first experience at Osteria and decided to book another dine out for my wife’s birthday. The location is clean and staff were friendly.
Our first time at Osteria the food was amazing with excellent flavour but this time around the food was bland without much taste. It was a night and day difference. We had to ask for salt, pepper and Parmesan to try to add flavour to our food. We ordered the chicken parmesan and butternut squash ravioli meals. I can say we won’t be trying these two dishes again.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. While we are thrilled to hear that you service was friendly, we are sorry to hear that the flavours were not quite right during this visit. We will definitely be letting the Chef and Kitchen team know so that they can follow up. We look forward to having you join us again and please continue to let us know about your experience! Thank you again and we look forward to having you back soon!

We are happy that you found us and we look forward to having you back soon!

Was seated right away but waited 30 min to be greeted by a server and be offered water, then waited one hour for food
We are so sorry about this experience. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of your visit and where we fell so short with your visit, we would love to be able to follow up accordingly. Thank you again
Fantastic night celebrating a bday with a friend. It wasnt too busy, felt very comfortable. Our waitress Julia was absolutely wonderful, 5 stars to her attention to detail, she was very knowledgeable on the menus. Food and drinks were delicious as always. Thanks!
Great food. AC was a bit cold however
Great meal - we have been here several times and the quality of service and food is consistent - They are practising good Covid safety measures which made my visit enjoyable - thank you!
