Having dined earlier, friends (4 in total) and I felt like some dessert, wine and/or coffee only to be refused entry at 8.30 pm! Really disappointed as people were still eating and there were plenty of available tables....obviously not interested in having a full house!

I almost cried when we found Osteria Martini. I would return for the great food or the proper service or the ambience or the wine but one simple detail won my heart and thanks forever. I've been visiting Australia for over 30 years. It has plunged from being "foodie" heaven to "I refuse to go out" hell. Every over-crowded, overpriced... More

This place is such a gem and its popularity is testament to that. Be sure to book to avoid disappointment! Our meals on this occasion were delicious and it was nice to have something that wasn't chips or pizza!! They also have Italian wine. Yum.

If you are looking for good food in Yamba you can't go past Osteria Martini. The food is delicious authentic Italian food and you can byo wine. We love the pork belly, the steak and the pizzas. This is reasonably priced food with flair.

Artended with a group of friends. Service good and food above averidge however waiter for the night smelt strongly of body odour. Maybe a shower and a clean shirt would be more appropriate in a warmer climate such as ours.

Dinner with the extended family and had a wonderful night. Menu is simple but different. Six of us ponder over the choices and all came up with something different. Great food - good value - and the staff are fantastic. The German backpacker waiter versus the home grown Italian matriarch - a very funny night
