    I had the pleasure of dining at Osteria 20 on Mother’s Day. The menu was very generous with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, a very large bowl of olives and antipasti followed by a lovely medium rare steak and a cannoli for dessert. My wife had the special Mother’s Day cocktail which was brilliantly designed by bartender Luca. Would highly recommend Osteria for these special days.

    We are so thrilled that you chose to spend your Mother's Day with us. We agree with you, Luca is an absolute weapon! Thank you again for spending your wife's special day at Osteria 20. We look forward to having you back in again soon :) Cheers Josh Hogan Venue Manager

    I arrived for my booking, hoping for a lovely meal with my partner. We were seated outside and told by the staff that they would bring us menus shortly. After 10 minutes, I went inside to ask for a menu as we had not received any contact while sitting outside. I was then told again that a menu would be out shortly. My partner and I waited another 10 minutes before deciding to leave and go to a different Italian restaurant. It was the worst service I have ever personally experienced, which is disappointing as I was expecting to spend a decent amount of money on dinner and hopefully have a new favourite local Italian place in walking distance from our new apartment.
    Osteria 20Responded on 18 May 2024

    Dear John, We truly value your feedback and are disappointed to hear that your visit fell short of expectations. I want to extend our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience caused by the loud volume levels. It's important for us to provide a relaxing atmosphere where guests can unwind and connect without any disruptions. Unfortunately, we were experiencing technical difficulties with our speakers that night, which hindered our ability to adjust the volume promptly. Regarding your comments on the food, we appreciate your honesty. Your feedback on portion size and pricing will certainly be taken into consideration as we refine our menu offerings. Thank you once again for your feedback, and we hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon. Regards Josh Hogan Venue Manager

    The food was absolutely incredible! We were blown away by how quickly it came out and the quality of the pasta and pizza. We will definitely be returning customers. The only downside to going on a Saturday night was the music was extremely loud and it was very hard to hear one another over the music inside the restaurant. I think we will return on a week night to avoid this!

    We attend Osteria 20 often and always enjoy the food and the service is always very good. I love that we can go with the whole family and not have to do a set menu. They always accommodate our dietary requirements and the food is always delicious. If going with friends, split bills is no problem and it’s always enjoyable. I chose Osteria 20 on Saturday night for my birthday with friends. I would recommend Osteria 20 to anyone who wants a great night out, whatever the occasion 😊

    This was supposed to be the "3 Course Valentines Day Special". There was also to be a "glass of prosecco on arrival" included. We are not big eaters and were initially concerned that it might be too much food as most Italian restaurants tend to serve fairly generous portions. No need for concern. The prosecco was more like a thimble full. Then the 2 entrees to share were miniscule and little more than a couple of mouthfuls at best. And my main course, beef on a bed of risotto was tiny and the risotto was little more than a smear on the plate. My wife's cannelloni was nuclear hot and had turned to mush from too long in the microwave. My dessert was the tiramisu - once again a child's portion at best. Not even a coffee included to finish the meal. Expensive and very poor value. There was nothing "special" about it whatsoever. All in all it appeared to be little more than a grab for maximum profit exercise. We had to make sandwiches at home as we were both starving...

    Dear Hawk, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your valuable feedback. It is disheartening to hear that your experience with us was not up to the consistently high standards that we set out to achieve. There appeared to have been a multitude of issues during your dining experience with us, which if highlighted on the night our experienced team would have been more than happy to have addressed and resolved. We understand that a set menu for an occasion such as Valentine's day, is the best way to ensure that all guests leave receiving the best possible value. Therefore, from a cost point perspective it is not the best way to maximise profits. Once again, thank you for your feedback. Kindest regards TheOsteria20ManagementTeam

    Went during the week as a small family of 6 for dinner to celebrate son’s 18th. The service was great especially the lady who serviced our table. To start, We had oysters (natural and Kilpatrick), arancini and caprese with prosciutto. All were fresh and delicious. Only thing missing on the caprese was bocconcini cheese which would have made it perfect. We then had the ribeye with peppercorn sauce, chicken risotto, chicken schnitzel and carbonara. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the carbonara was exceptional. The risotto, however, was abit too runny as was the peppercorn sauce. The chicken schnitzel was a little too bland as it lacked seasoning. We followed up with tiramisu which was quite good but the highlight was the chocolate fondant with icecream! Definitely recommend for a casual dinner. All up bill was $440 ($73 per person) which included a glass of red, cocktail, and two beers

    Friendly and efficient service staff. Manager: reserved Food: Potato pizza was thoroughly enjoyed although a little spicy for my child. Beef lasagna was just a tad oversalted, Linguine Osteria (seafood) and spaghetti carbonara were given the thumbs up by our table. French fries were on point. Kids enjoyed the Italian doughnuts (first time). The restaurant website does not specify that the Pasta/Pizza night special of $48 were restricted to specific items, and that additional cost for one specific item would be added onto the $48, and I think there should be more transparency on this. We had a nice overall dining experience at Osteria 20.

    Spacious busy restaurant with pleasant Italian food but more suited to young diners or families than seniors.

    Dear Xander, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, it is greatly appreciated.

We take great pride in ensuring that our venue is well-equipped and accommodating for all our customers, especially our senior patrons, and we consistently receive positive feedback in this regards. If there is anything in particular that we could do to meet your expectations, please feel free to contact us directly, we would be happy to hear from you. Once again, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your invaluable feedback. Kindest regards TheOsteria20ManagementTeam

    Pizza was good, spaghetti with seafood had too much oil, gnocchi was good. Service was good

    Dear Loreta, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with you feedback, it is greatly appreciated. It is disheartening to hear that your experience with us was only worthy of 3 stars. Our Spaghetti Pescatore is one of our best sellers, so rest assured our head chef is aware of the feedback, and will be looking into how this can be improved.

    Beautiful food and service. For an intimate dinner, it was very hard to hear. Would def recommend it, but if you need to talk a lot you might think it’s too loud
    Osteria 20Responded on 8 January 2024
    Dear BHAlfaRomeo, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, it is greatly appreciated. We are so pleased to hear that you found the food and service beautiful, and that you would recommend our venue. Apologies that the venue was particularly noisy, the acoustics of the big open room can be particularly difficult to manage at times. Rest assured we work hard to ensure the ambience of the room is perfect for our valued guests. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kindest regards TheOsteria20ManagementTeam

    Good food and friendly staff, but the service was slow and whenever we needed something it took some effort to attract the attention of staff.

    Great place and great food. Needs a few more food choices though and also gluten free options. They forgot out tea and we asked for one dish without olives but it was covered with olives. Not a lot of attention to detail but good service and nice food.
    Osteria 20Responded on 3 January 2024
    Dear Willow, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review, it is greatly appreciated! We are excited to be releasing our new menu for 2024, with some exciting new dishes and extended options.

Also, I would like to inform you that all of our Pizza's can be made gluten free, along with the majority of our pasta dishes. I apologise that the team did not convey this to you. We hope that in the near future, we can welcome you back and provide you with the service we consistently strive to achieve. Kindest regards TheOsteria20ManagementTeam

    Expensive for what we ate and average quality. Spaghetti pescatore was $45. The seafood was overcooked and swimming in oil. Couldn’t finish it. Won’t be returning in a hurry. Also sitting in the bar area at the front was extremely hot due to the full sun coming in.
    Osteria 20Responded on 26 December 2023
    Dear Rosemary, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, it is greatly appreciated! It is disheartening to hear that your dining experience was not up to the standard that we consistently aim to achieve, and provide our guests. Apologies that you found the seating area uncomfortably hot. Unfortunately, this is something that we have minimal control over. I wish your discomfort had of been highlighted to our team on the night, they would have gladly assisted the best way they could. We hope that one day in the future we can welcome you back.
