L'Osteria is a popular venue for intimate family functions. The home-style restaurant provides a warm, cosy atmosphere with an authentic Italian experience. Head chef Santino moved to Australia after working in renowned hotels and restaurants all over Italy. The attention to detail in the menu and a willingness to accommodate the unique needs of event hosts means generations of families and corporate companies continue to book their important functions and celebrations at L'Osteria.

Sunday lunches often see the North Fitzroy restaurant host christenings, confirmations and communions. The restaurant space is also regularly used for live entertainment during milestone birthdays and anniversaries. And towards the end of the year, L'Osteria Restaurant is continually booked for corporate Christmas functions well in advance of the season.

We celebrated my husband's birthday last Saturday night with 84 guests.
The quality and quantity of the food was absolutely amazing and delicious. The service was outstanding. With so many people to look after, I did not expect things to run like clockwork, but they did. My guests complimented the staff throughout the night. Kern was incredibly professional, amiable and nothing was a bother, all our requests were fulfilled. I highly recommend L'Osteria restaurant for a large function, you will not be disappointed!

Thank you to you, your family and staff for setting up and making a lovely lunch for our daughter's baptism celebrations. Everyone positively complimented and commented on the day. It had a professional but very friendly atmosphere. We were just able to sit back and relax and have a great day because everything was taken care of. We would have no problems in recommending you to family and friends and will be back soon!
