Description: Our name derives from the Italian word meaning a restaurant serving wine and simple food, “osteria,” and the Italian phrase meaning to sit and relax, “posto.” This approach to heartfelt hospitality and thoughtful food characterizes our take on today’s Italian steakhouse. We serve composed Italian dishes featuring locally sourced meat and seafood, homemade pasta, small bites, and seasonal flavors.

of 2017. Had our New Year's Eve dinner here with friends as we hadn't yet tried it and we were pleased. Nice space, broken up into smaller segments. Nice and warm on a very cold night (tip: There's a garage entrance around back with an elevator almost right to the front door). Food was very good (Rigatoni, swordfish, gnocchi, etc). Service was friendly but a bit slow and water glasses went unfilled.

Not cheap, but better priced than similar would be downtown.

We had dinner here with friends Christmas Eve and when I heard the meat and other things were from Savenor's in Cambridge and Boston, I knew we were in for a good meal. And it was. Of course the steaks were exceptional, but also a rock cornish game hen with polenta and wilted greens. The appetizers could have made a meal in tghemselves-lightly fried, very fresh calamari, arancini, beet and goat cheese salad. The pastas also delivered, especially the gnocchi with braised short ribs. Room only for the flourless chocolate cake for one of us and we all tasted-dense, deep dark chocolate not at all dry. Other offerings looked great and I'm planning on the sticky toffee pudding next time with a less filling entree. The service could not have been better as well. It would be 5 stars, but that is because it is a little pricey-can understand it for the meat entrees and others, but not the pastas. An attractive interior and the large space still manages to feel intimate and cozy.

That was maybe not the best food for my taste but definitely high quality one. Everything was was cooked to perfection with great balance of flavors. The meat was tender, the asparagus perfectly crunchy, all sauces and sides well balanced with the plate taste.

Food is reasonably priced, decent sized portions. Service was good, a little slow at lunch time when they weren't overcrowded. Would eat there again.

I have had mixed experiences here. The good ones have been great the others not so much. Great bar, good food selection. Expensive and sometime worth it sometimes not
