Thin crusted, slightly charred pizzas (try the prosciutto e rucola with balsamic reduction) are served up along side pasta dishes like the rigatoni rustica with sausage and peppers or the delicious bowl of mussels with a white wine sauce (bianca). During warm weather months, the patio which sits under white strands of light bulbs and along side N. Highland is definitely the coveted seating area. Friendly servers are quick to recognize regulars and are surprisingly patient with the kiddos running around. A fairly decent wine and beer list certainly helps one tolerate the hubbub.

girlfriends and i had brunch on the patio. when we asked to be seated in the shade they put us at a table half covered with shade. we asked if we could move again, the waiter just shrudged his shoulders. a few minutes later an umbrella was brought to another table. we asked if we could have one. we were told no, they were out. then we asked if we could move into the shade at another table, we were told no. then we asked if we could move our table to the shade. again, no. my cocktail was hot and i sweated thru my meal. i didn't enjoy one bit. by the time we left, my back was burned and the girl next to me had a wet napkin on her neck to cool off and to keep her neck from getting sun burned. her arms were burned.

on an ealier occerance, i was having brunch with friends and it took just shy of 3 hours for them to turn our table. when our food came out we had to get up, go inside to find our waiter and ask for silverware. they never refilled waters or came to check on us. it was dead of the summer and our finished plates sat in front of us for 30 minutes with flies everywhere. again, we finally got up and found our server (sitting inside) and asked him to clear our plates and bring the check. plates got cleared. still no check. still no check, again, we had to ask for it.
I've worked in food and bev for 13 years and have not ever seen such poor judgment on the staff's abililty to serve customers and i've never seen such poor judgment in the management that hires this kind of staff.

My family and I went to Osteria for the first time as a birthday / engagement celebration. I wanted to go somewhere that was reasonably priced (and that had good reviews). Osteria was the perfect spot. The food was awesome. I highly recommend the Boscaiola and Bolognese pastas. The spinach salad was delicious and HUGE - enough for 5 of us to share! We will definitely be going back.

I love Osteria 832. It's a great place to stop by for an impromptu meal, never disappoints. Favorites are the foccacia cheese bread basket and the chicken marsala. Great menu and wine list. Kid friendly, outside seating when weather permits and lot parking available.

Osteria is a pretty good place in the highlands; however it is certainly not one of my favorites. Their pizza is pretty good, and I love when they offer bottomless wine!

We haven't been blown away by Osteria 832, but it's never displeased either. A lot of mediocre food gets served in the Highlands because restaurants know they can get away with it...Osteria does still seem to try.

Good italian food with a casual atmosphere. I recommend sitting on the patio for a relaxing evening in the highlands drinking a glass of wine. Decent wine selection, as well. Good service and location. Good pasta and tomato and mozzarella salad.

I went to Osteria for the first time last weekend. Since moving to Atlanta in February, I'd been looking for a good, reasonably priced Italian restaurant. Osteria is IT!!!!!!!! The food is great, servers are very nice, and the prices cannot be beat.

I recommend sitting on the patio out front...the atmosphere is really nice. Lots of flowers and a good view of the neighborhood. It's one of the few outdoor patios that allow smoking---a plus for those of us who haven't quit yet!

I've been here quite a few times, and I am addicted! Their pizza and pasta are all so delicious. As tempting as it is to always get the same thing each time, my boyfriend and I are determined to try EVERYTHING on the menu! I'm not kidding when I say I'd recommend every dish on the menu. My favorite pasta dishes are the Boscaiola, if you are craving a richer pasta dish, the Melanzane if you love veggies, and you can never go wrong with their spaghetti and meatballs. The pizzas are to die for, too, especially the Salsiccia or any other pizzas with prosciutto. They also have an impressive wine list and beer selection. Service is always fantastic, and the prices are appropriate for the food. MUST TRY!!

I moved to the Virginia-Highlands neighborhood of Atlanta two years ago, and Osteria 832 has been a weekly staple for me. They're always winning "Best of Atlanta" awards in multiple publications for "best cheap eats", "kid-friendly", and "best Italian", and this true neighborhood joint has never let me down. They specialize in AFFORDABLE rustic Italian fare (pizza, pasta, antipasta, etc.) and weekend brunch. I prefer sitting on their pleasant patio. You can eat for well under 10 bucks.

I lived in Italy and I have to tell you this place is so close to authentic you forget where you are! The pizzas are fantastic, my personal favorite is the Prosciutto & Arugula, honestly its addictive. They have delicious, adventerous specials and their wine list is amazing. The wine list honestly has something for everyone and in a range of prices. Tuesdays they have half priced bottles of wine. Try the Illuminati... amazing!

Osteria's been in my neighborhood for a long time, and I'm cursing myself for not trying it sooner. As a long time proponent of Figo for cheap, good Italian, I can easily say Osteria is now the place I visit for my default Italian fix.

Aside from a short wait (this place seems to stay relatively busy, almost all of the time), I've always been seated (inside) pretty quickly. The patio is a great option (especially in warmer months), but expect to wait if you really want a seat out there. Service is always very friendly & attentive, and the servers obviously know what they like. The wine list is adequate and features decent prices (I believe there's a 1/2 price bottle special on one day of the week).

The food: fantastic. The stand-outs: the bruschetta (flavorful and having perfect texture, the best I've ever had) and ravioli fritti are fantastic starters (I could almost sit and eat extra helpings instead of ordering an entree); of the pasta dishes I've tried, the Pollo Toscano is my absolute favorite (the lasagna and puttanesca are also good... I didn't care much for the Pesto Genovese). I haven't ordered a pizza yet, but they all look very tasty.

The only downside (fir me, anyway) is that the place is family friendly, and as such you'll occasionally encounter some screaming children (somehow amplified when you're sitting inside). However, I'll accept that as a necessary evil. I highly recommend Osteria, and encourage you to get over there and try it if you haven't already.

Osteria 832 has reasonable prices,reliable and excellent serbice, and it's in the great location of the Virginia-Highlands. I've only beent there once but I recommend to visit this resturaunt to anyone who wants to find a good Italian resturaunt in Atlanta. The only bad thing about Osteria is that it can get a little crowded at night, especially on the weekends.But I guess that's how all resturaunt are right?

So the reasons why I like this place a lot are because the food is delicious, the waitstaff is very nice and laidback, and you never wait more than 20 minutes even at the height of dinner on a Saturday night. They have the most delicious gorgonzola sauce I've ever tasted, and their house wines, both red and white, are fabulous and SO cheap at 5.50 each. It would be perfect if the service weren't so fast! Yeah, that's right I said it. We Americans usually expect and demand fast service. But for me, going out to eat IS the evening's entertainment. I enjoy the experience as well as the food. There have been times when we've been in and out of Osteria within 30 minutes. It's just too fast. I would rather have to order another glass of wine and wait expectantly for my entree once the salad has been cleared away. Sometimes it makes me feel like they are shuffling us out on purpose just to turn the tables over. I try to ignore them as I dive headfirst into my plate of delicious pasta gorgonzola. :-)

This restaurant was okay. I would say there is nothing at this place that you couldn't get at another pizza/"Italian" restaurant. I had the scampi, pretty good, but as another reviewer said there was a lot of oil on my scampi. I wouldn't go as far to say that it wasn't good, but there defintely is nothing special there. There is one thing that I noticed about this place when I was eating my food, the menu has cheap entrees. 10$ for a pizza, and 10$ for a bowl of scampi, that is not bad for the way things are at this restaurant. You get what you pay for that is for sure. My girlfriend had the prosciutto pizza, that had about 4 slices of prosciutto. The cheese was great, but the crust was a bit hard, but we all like different things. My scampi was great, they didn't skimp on the shrimp. The server was nice, and really no complaints. This is a great place to go and hang, but don't come here thinking you are going to get a memorable meal.

I love the thin pizzas at Osteria. Also i keep coming back for the mussels. Only maggianos does them better. Now that it is not so hot out i will definately be hitting up osteria's patio more often.

Osteria is aesthically pleasing, the seating is comfortable, and the counter staff was friendly. I ordered the Proscutto Pizza, they have several, its one at the bottom of the menu for Ten bucks. It Was not good, they went crazy with rosemary and it was drenched in balsamic vinger. My girlfriend ordered the Tuscano chicken sandwich, she wasn't too thrilled with it either. I will give it another shot but the first impression of the food was not great.

Osteria 832 has simply prepared food that tastes good. The pizza is really thin crust with great flavor. The salads , fried calamari, and spinach dip are good. The pastas are also good, but could use more sauce. They are a little light on the sauces. Good wines to go with your meal.

...new breeds of innovative italian cooking. i highly recommend the appetizer portion of mussels, the baschaiola, tuscan chicken and mushroom triangoli. i go just about once a week and have found no failing of consistency to impress. they have a nice little 3 tier selection of italian wines ranging from around $15-$30 and half off wine on tuesdays. every server i've had has been friendly and knew their menu. its not pay parking if you tell the attendant you're going to osteria. overall one of my favorite places to go.

But, there are a few things to work on. The food is consistent, unique and and very good. The ambience is great as well. However, waits can be pretty bad, the service is below average, they don't have a full bar and the prices are nothing to write home about. Even though Osteria 832 has its problems, it is still a great choice for dinner. I'd just pick an off night.

A good idea is what little good I have to offer this restaurant after 5-6 visits.
Chi-chi pizzas and pastas at slightly more affordable prices. On a reluctant recent visit we encountered "20-30" minute wait. Not unusual. Totally fine. After 40 minutes, a second drink, a long perusal of the menu we were told our table was "coming up."
20 more patient minutes passed. Nothing. Patient as we are, we noticed not a soul waiting for a table and tables open. We then left.
The cause of my reluctance to go here anyhow is based on distinct memory of bland pizzas guised as the chi-chi pizza I prefer just down the street. It's not at all an elitist thing, but I'd rather pay dollar or two more for fresh, well-paired ingredients. Furthermore, a staff that appears to have some understanding at what they're doing always helps.

Our kids (10&6) were underwhelmed by the kids menu, so we ordered them an adult pasta entree ($14) plus a salad ($4) to share, while my wife and I decided to split a special pizza ($12) plus a salad ($4). The food was very good but we found the portions inadequate: my 6 year old would have finished the adult entree and a salad by himself! Typically, $9/head (food portion only - no drinks) at a family-type place would easily feed a family of two average adult eaters and two children - usually with leftovers. Plus, bread comes with the meal - here they charge extra ($3.)

Osteria is labeled Pizza and Pasta, which is an accurate representation of their menu. You have to pay for the bread, although it IS pretty darn good. I had the special pizza for the day, a mushroom thing marinated in balsamic vinegar. Pretty good, and very large for one person. The crust was super fabulous, which helped make up for the somewhat pretentious lack of topping. The Vesuvio appetizer, bread with sauce and ricotta, was excellent. The bolognese was a little heavy.
Service was pretty good, but it takes an act of Congress to get a separate check. Otherwise not a bad choice if you want pizza or pasta, but not much else.
