Considering business operations in this difficult time with space considerations limiting potential this restaurant is maintaining enjoyable service standards with great menu options of fine quality.

Such a beautiful warm and inviting place for dinner. Our meals were all cooked to perfection and tasted devine, highly recommend the pork belly it succulent and simply melts in your mouth. Service was excellent and love the owner Sandy she’s so nice and friendly ❤️

When I asked the waitress what was in the 'special' risotto she said she didnt know & would find out. However she never came back to us with an answer. She had previously told us it was her first night so I guess we can let her off.

Anniversary evening. Staff we very friendly and attentive. Sadly the antipasto was not available, so tried two entree dishes - risotto balls and mozzerella. Our experience and love for good Italian food is largely orientated around fresh produce, homemade sauces and dishes. Unfortunately this was not the case here. Mozzerella not buffala mozzerella as on menu. Aioli was from a jar, and Parmesan from a packet. Staff and location are good, nice place to have a drink.

Our first visit to Osteria was on our honeymoon in 2017. Since then, we've been back a few times and always enjoyed the food and the service. We didn't know there was an Osteria in Taupo so it was such a treat to go there for our 3rd anniversary. The food was incredible as always and the service outstanding. Everyone working there was pleasant and helpful. Although the food is pricey, it is worth it for flavour, quality and amount. This is the perfect restaurant for special occasions.
