Italian

Osteria Amore came to life because we believe in the power of food to change your day, or in our case, change your life.

Owner Eduardo Daja has been working in restaurants since he was a teenager growing up in Italy, and his time in culinary school only strengthened his passion for food. After culinary school, Ed stayed in Bologna to work at a family-owned restaurant. He moved to Utah eight years ago, and found himself missing his first love, food. For the past three years, Ed has been managing an Italian restaurant while also maintaining a career in tech and finally made the life-changing decision to open his own restaurant.

That big decision was made possible for Ed when he met Marco Cuttaia, Osteria Amore’s executive chef and partner. Ed’s training in Bologna, considered the food capital of Italy, and Marco’s upbringing in Palermo, known for its incredible street food, bridge northern and southern Italian culinary tradition in a way that’s never been done in Salt Lake City.

    Very good food, very good service, too noisy for us, but that is a consequence of their good operation and its enthusiastic clientele at a busy time.

    Gorgeous restaurant with great food! If you're looking for Italian in SLC, this is the place to go! I would highly recommend the Lemon Sorbet for a light dessert after a carb-filled dinner.

    We ate outside and it was very pleasant. Minimum street noise and plenty of shade. We were early, 5pm for a concert, so seated quickly and served quickly too. The caprese was wonderful, best I have ever had. The pizza tasted great but the crust was soft, just not cooked long enough. This is a very good restaurant.

    The food was delicious. Large portions and deep flavor. The desserts - we had the profiteroles and wild berry gelato - were also fantastic. The service was very slow - despite having a reservation, we waited several minutes to get seated and we were seated for an hour before our food came. However, the owner did take the time to explain they were short staffed (and he was actually waiting tables himself) and offered us a free dessert. We’ll definitely return sometime soon.

    The food was fabulous, the service on the other hand was beyond awful. If you want to have a conversation at your table eat elsewhere, the noise is an bearable. If is was not for the fabulous food, it would not be worth eating there.

    Both the food and service are fantastic here. My partner introduced me to this place on one of our first dates, and it's been a favorite since then. We like to try new places, but this is one we keep returning to because it's just amazing. Ed was our server, and he made the whole experience pleasant and relaxing.

    Waited for about 20 minutes at our table until server came, not offered a drink before we perused menus, had to ask server for our drinks 10 minutes after we ordered them. Saw other servers looking like they were not bustling, wondered why we were waiting so long for service. For a higher price point expected better attention.

    I love this place and it is becoming one of my favorite places, which may be surprising to see that my overall experience was at 3 stars. Let me explain, the food and service there are outstanding, been there several times and always had same high level of experience, but as a new mom It is disappointing to see places that do not have a changing table. I get some people don’t like kids and think they spoil their experience, never paid attention until I got my baby. We love to go out and we want the same for her, I hope I am wrong to think it was done on purpose to make it less inviting to family with kids. I hope it was just a matter of forgetting it, so here is my review to remind. Please add a changing table to your restroom. Kids do better when they start young, let’s invite them in.

    This was our first time visiting Osteria Amore and the restaurant is modern and had a very nice atmosphere. The food was good, but the service from being seated (they gave the table they were setting up for us to another couple that came in after us) to having our waiter be upset with us when we didn’t choose a recommendation on wine (after not having our first two selections) was chaotic.

    12may2022, reservation at 8.30pm. Accoglienza incantevole e molto gradita. Locale pulito e nuovo dove l'attenzione al cliente è puntuale, ma attenta e garbata. Ordinate 4 pizze. Pasta a lievitazione minima di 48 ore.... pomodoro San Marzano... ecc.. ingredienti di prima qualità che nemmeno in Italia si trovano!!! Una bontà di profumi e gusti. Infine i cannoli siciliani con cialda freschissima... un vassoio sarebbe stato poco e per non dire il gelato (pistacchio + cioccolato) e budino (con una consistenza perfetta!!!) sempre fatto in casa!!! Staff e titolare Edoardo gentilissimi e garbati; ci siamo veramente sentiti coccolati e come a casa. Un caloroso ringraziamento a tutti ed un augurio di molte soddisfazioni. Consiglio ad occhi chiusi. Un'eccellente punto di riferimento. Grazie ragazzi
