Osteria offers an excellent selection of Italian/European classics with a bit of a twist and some innovation at times. Additional specialties are offered based on the season. The quality is always excellent. Even the steak we had last time was precision cooked and one of the best we have ever had. Above all, the service and overall atmosphere is excellent... More

We needed a break and stopped for a bit and coffee. Be careful when you order pizza as one is enough for at least two people. The food was wonderful and the service excellent.

I was there with another Italian colleague and we ordered a very good bean soup with some slice of tartufo, and tagliata that was served with polenta, typical north Italian garnish and rucola. Bread and see wine were also really appreciated and a Tuscany digestive was prepared very accurately for us. Price probably a bit higher than the average but... More

Found this place by coincidence and booked it straight away for dinner the following day. Atmosphere, food, service is simply perfect. The dishes are simple, just like you would get them in an Italian restaurant in Italy. Don't expect Michelin star cooking, just honest food. The host is interested in giving useful hints to what to drink and is just... More

Not sure what all the fuss is about this place. We tried it on recommend from a friend. The atmosphere is lovely but the food lets it down. Maybe it was what we ordered but it wasn't great.

Great host, great atmosphere...a little cramped, but acceptable. Good menu and nice dishes, but nothing mind blowing! Food, as with most places I've tried in Kassel is bordering on bland and boring, not well seasoned but nicely presented and otherwise well prepared...there is a kind of something that is there but it's not, if you know what I mean!

Thank Larni V
