Osteria's upscale Italian cuisine is sophisticated without being stuffy, this is high class dining in a relaxed atmosphere. You will find gourmet Italian dishes, veal, chicken, and seafood lovingly served with attention to detail and service. In addition, there is a very extensive wine selection.
I usually come here for dates, but came here the other night with my family. We were a group of 7 total with my sister's fiance and had a reservation but still had to wait to be seated, despite calling beforehand and arriving on time. I love Italian food, and so does my mom, so we decided to stick around.
The service was extremely slow, and the waiters did not seem to be very engaged or interested. Usually I don't care, but for the occasion and prices we were paying, I expected more. This Italian was always slow but this time it left me disappointed. The food was alright, but my linguine pescatore was a little off. There was very little shrimp and the mussels were so-so.
I had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant this past Friday.. My husband and I had our 30 year anniversary.. He had the veal Osteria and I had the seafood linguine which was out of this world.. The waiter made a superb wine recommendation and at the end of the dinner they presented a lovely piece of tiramisu dessert on the house in congratulations of our success. Thank you Osteria for making our evening special.
My wife and i dined here tonight celebrating our 10 year anniversary and we were treated wonderfully by the staff. The food was superb and the wine recommended by our waiter was perfect. Thank you Osteria for the great experience. We look forward to our dining experience at your restaurant. Well done!
My husband and I had our 15th anniversary at osteria and we were delighted. Everything was perfect, the food the service are just outstanding. The owners even bought us a bottle of champagne for our special night which was very kind of them. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

We went there and surprised to see that this place is really busy. We waited there for 10-15 mins and got a table. As we sat there a waiter immediately came taking jug of water and a complementary dish of salad. We were surprised. It was the nice greeting. We ordered Following things. Appetizers : Scampi alla Osteria, Lumaghe all' Aglio Soups: Tortellini in Brodo Salads: Insalata alla Osteria, Pomodori alla Caprese Main course: Penne Arabbiata, Melanzane Parmigiana(Veg) Desert: Tiramisu Osteria All the servants were really quick and fast. They will help you choose the right items if you are visiting first time. Osteria has one of the best decoration i have ever seen. You will love it. Prices were quite in range. Our total bill was around 80-90$. I would strongly advise you to visit this place. Thumbs up..
Came here for the first time and absolutely loved it. Our server was extremely attentive and knowledgeable on each menu item and wine on the wine list so it made our first dining experience there very enjoyable. I will definitely recommend it to all of my friends and colleagues and will definitely be back in the near future!
The Osteria has top notch food and top notch service. It's a little piece of Italy for us to enjoy here in Calgary. Their stampede events are also a little more unique and a great environment for companies to come and host clients. We had previously rented a VIP cabana, were given our own private bartender, and amazing food. Overall, I have thoroughly enjoyed the many faces of the Osteria in Kensington.
I enjoy this restaurant every time i dine here. recently they revamped their menu to include dozens of wine by the glass and renovated to offer a casual dining area so i now go without my formal attire and fit right in.. and they now have a very large patio that seems to get sun all day long.. it keeps getting better.. thanx Osteria i look forward to my next visit.
