Osteria Restaurant Review

: On almost any evening at Osteria, a classic Italian fixture in Presidio Heights, you may see at least one or two tables of local restaurateurs dining. It's their go-to place for relaxation and well-prepared Italian standards such as veal scaloppine with mushrooms or lemon and capers, scampi Mediterraneo with shallots, or calamari steak in lemon-butter sauce. Pastas and risottos are always tempting; lighter options include Caesar salad and poached salmon. Service is seamless and the d├ęcor in this simple rectangular space is appropriately retro. Live acoustic music on Monday nights further enriches the experience.
