Unexpected Italian authenticity, with just simple, straightforward pasta cooked and seasoned perfectly.

Nice retlstaurant with good food. The specials are quite good too. Like the moscato wine. Nice ambience although it is quite close to the street.

The food is not especially cheap, but its quality is absolutely unimpeachable. Even people who don't care for italian food loved the food here.

A real surprise, this restaurant is impeccably cleaned, the menu is broad, the service is sharp and pleasant and the food is great! Reasonable prices too. Ate here many times in a large group, never failed to impress.

Staff slow and disinterested and food average. Restaurant nice though and AC toilet which is unique in Dili. Overall disappointing and expensive.

Whilst most restaurants in Timor Lorosae can be a little hit and miss at times, Osteria is generally consistently good. Italian flavors from local produce. Bread sticks and olive oil whilst waiting. Attentive staff.

One of few choices for home delivery. Got the pepperoni pizza which was truly awesome (thin crust, of course!). The salad however was limp and not so good. Would have given 4 stars if it was a bit cheaper..
