Very popular Italian restaurant, find it crowded most of the time, specially during dinner. Out door is nice to sit during dinner, nice quite ambience, but bit dark. Good tasting food. Service bit slow but may enjoy if you are leisurely having the dinner.

With the launch of Osteria Warwick in Gigiri this year, Osteria now offers Sushi and Teppanyaki, arguably some of the the best Japanese food in the country. Visit us today for a slice of Italy.
