Outstanding and innovative Italian dishes using beautiful fresh ingredients. Definitely try the casoncelli!! It’s a delightfully balanced dish of fresh pasta, cheese and sage. The meringata for dessert was divine. I will be returning.

I have eaten at Oster a few times now and the food is amazing.
The menu changes weekly so there is always something new to try.
Home made bread - yum! Extensive wine list.
Service is impeccable.
You will not be disappointed.

Did the tasting menu and received 5 dishes with exactly the same texture. No variation in the plating, and we were not served food to match what we were drinking (fish with a heavy red wine).

Would definitely not recommend.

hello,
the food/wine were amazing.
The waitress was 'new" I'm assuming, so she we had no issue with her she just missed a couple of the basics but it certainly did not effect the night.
The only thing that put a damper on the night was the very annoying women sitting next to us who needs to learn some etiquette when dining out with other people around her.
We will be back though...

Really interesting northern Italian fare. Creative and delicious- think tomatoes with strawberries, pepper and goats cheese, paccheri with green olives and tomato dust. Will go back. Good wine list and friendly service

Very good food and welcoming staff. Lovely little extra touches. 4 stars given only because it was quiet in the restaurant so the service was a little too attentive at times.

A new little Richmond gem. The food and wine matching was perfect. Italian varieties made by Australian producers. The standout dish for me was the roasted capsicum risotto, the best risotto I have ever had! Think great local produce with an Italian accent.
