The more casual, trattoria-like offshoot of Vetri, Osteria is a big, lively place where the pizzas are terrific (try the octopus and smoked mozzarella) and the cooking is homey but first-rate, from veal liver ravioli with figs to rabbit stewed with pancetta over intensely flavored polenta. — Jess Kapadia, 2/18/11

Try the Mortadella Pizza - Amazing

You'd be surprised to know that Osteria isn’t as expensive as you might think. You can eat comfortably for well under $100 per person. Not cheap, but a great value for what you get on your plate.

Marc Vetri's affordable dinner spot. Love it. Took a break after stopping by on every trip. Time for a return visit. Be sure to sit at the kitchen counter to see the action.

Marc Vetri's margarita pizza made for a delicious candidate on "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." We concur. P.S. - ask about the Nutella pizza.
The Chicken Liver Rigatoni is one of Philly's best dishes, and the pizza is some of the best in the city. [Eater 38 Member]

Chicken liver rigatoni is sublime. Pasta porn at its best.
Offering whole roasted pig heads every Tuesday night, and the combination of supremely moist meat, unusual head-based organs & the crackling sweet-&-sour skin make this one of the city’s top treats.

No, the restaurant’s name does not mean ‘austere’ in Italian (thanks to Joffre for clearing that one up for us)!
On March 30, Osteria’s Jeff Michaud & Elisa Scavino, & producer Paolo Scavino, will host a dinner featuring a spring-appropriate menu & the always-wonderful wines. Don't miss it.

If you're having trouble choosing from the amazing menu, try the house-made cotechino sausage with polenta and a sunny-side-up egg.

Pappardelle with braised rabbit and parmigiano cheese come and get it tonight at Osteria!
Philadelphia Magazine
Of all the things to love about Marc Vetri’s casual Italian hot spot, the pizza — lightly charred, with thoughtful, harmonious toppings — is the real superstar.
Jeff Gibbard
Lombado pizza is sublime. Octopus is remarkable. Postage stamp pasta is great as is the rigatoni. The roast pig special is one of my favorites. Antipasto vegetables is great for a group.
Colleen Martin
The octopus is outstanding! Also noteworthy: Sulami plate with artichoke mustard (pronounced moose-tarde), blueberry sundae w/ coconut shortbread and the Torre Quarto "Don Marcello" wine.
