Osterias have been an integral part of Italian tradition as pit stops for travelers and community meeting places. L'Osteria is located in Italian-heavy North End , continuously run by owners Nicky and Lina DiPietrantonio since 1985. The menu features authentic rustic Italian cuisine made from traditional recipes passed down over generations. Start off with antipasto and mussels marinara, delicious pasta, and specialties like veal marsala, chicken parmigiana and filetto alla napoletano. Enhance your experience with regional wine and spirits.
I've tasted several dishes over the years and have never been let down. It's a great place for a first date or for friends to have a bite together. The wait staff has always been very friendly and attentive ans the prices are very reasonable.
This was the first place I have even eaten at in the North End and I was pleasantly surprised as soon as we walked by and peered in the window. The atmosphere inside is wonderful, dimly lit, simply decorated, very romantic. The service was great all around and the food was also very good. I got the lobster ravioli and I did enjoy it, although it was not the best I had ever had. However, all the meals are cooked to order and my boyfriend's chicken dish was to die for! All in all it was a good value and a lovely night out. Definately worth a try!
My husband and my self eat out about once a week, and we like to try different places. We've probably ate in about ten different places in the North End, this was by the best yet. It's cozy,and decorated very nicely. The food is moderestly priced,and absolutely delicious. We shared two appetizers, then shared two different entrees one thing was better than the next, and the tirimisu is to die for. The waitress was attentive but not overwhelming like I find to be the problem in most North End eateries. If you're in the North End you have to try Losteria. The hostess was the sweetest little thing and seemed to get along so nicely with her coworkers.
We happened upon the restaurant while we were touring Boston by foot. Saw the menu posted outside and decided to have a late lunch. All I can say is that both myself and my husband havn't been able to get this place out of our minds. We travelled in the USA for a month this summer and it was by far our favorite place to eat. Can't wait to go back.
Heavy-handed, flavors are not pulled together, greasy, overprices, salads in my college caff. used to be better.
Bad bad bad food
If you like your veal or meat rare do not order anything on the menu, my veal that i usualy like medium-rare ( closer to rare) came cooked all the way through and stringy, and the sauce tasted like it was just melted butter and cream ( maybe with some terragon)
I have been going to L'osteria since I was about 5 years old. I am now 26 and still go there. The food is unbelievable and everyone there is like a family to me. Make sure you call ahead for a reservation though as it books up fast!!! I would recommend the Chicken Bracioltine (I know I spelt that wrong)...I get that EVERY time I go. The chicken l'osteria is also wonderful. Everything is great. For appetizers I would recommend the BMS, artichokes in batter and there garlic bread is so good. PLEASE take my word for it. I have been recommending this place to family, friends and even strangers and everyone keeps going back for more!!! ENJOY!!!
Our lunch today at L'Osteria will long be remembered as a very pleasant dining experience. We were seated promptly, our waiter was pleasant and efficient and the food just remakable. Our choices were the Lasagna and the Ravioli. The servings were just right for luncheion portions and the prices very reasonable. We greatly look forward to our next visit there and highly recommend this restaurant to one and all.
The food was excellent - fried calamari for appetizer; variety of main courses for six people - all good. But the service was provided without a smile and was often surly at best. And, then we found out they put a 20% gratuity on the check for parties of six or more - so we couldn't even show our dissatisfaction.
I have been a regular here for twenty years and drive 50 miles in each direction to eat at L'Osteria. The cuisine is the finest prepared to order Italian food in the North End. The staff are caring, humerous, and professional. There is no more to say that in twenty years I have never had a bad experience there.
Upon walking in, the ambiance was very nice. However, how waiter seemed uninterested and shrugged his shoulders when we asked for a wine recommendation. Our orders were taken, the place quickly filled up and all around us, diners were being served while we sat unattended. We finally enlisted the help of a very nice lady from the kitchen who proceeded to check on us until we left. Our waiter never again approached our table. I frequent the North End quite a bit and was entertaining guests from overseas. Although they enjoyed their food, mine was cold and the pasta not what I ordered. The sauce was overpowered with the taste of green peppers. A disappointment overall. I will not return.

This seafood restaurant serves old fashioned New England fare in a great waterfront setting. Some might call the decor tacky,
with ships' wheels, lobster pots and fishnets adorning the wood paneled walls, but it is reassuring that places like ...
