Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came on a first table deal and was blown away. The mooloolaba Prawns, spaghetti marinara, truffle pizza, and panecotta- sensational!!! Home made, fresh, and super tasty. We ordered a lot of food and arlte the lot. We went to a different Italian restaurant a...few weeks ago, and we left 1/2 on our plates- tastless. Highly recommended and will goi back.More

Starters were excellent - grilled butterfly prawns & the special focaccia . Very tasty . Mains were very disappointing & not good value for money. - lasagna was basically lots of pasta sheets & sauce but hardly any meat. - gnocchi- again lots of sauce...& lacked actual gnocchi pieces - carbonara just ok These are all common & basic dishes in all Italian restaurants and should be done well. No excuses. Service was good but wouldn’t expect anything less in an almost empty restaurant. There are so many restaurants in Burleigh competing. This restaurant can do better . I hope it does. It is such a lovely place.More

This is only the second time we have been. It was great the first time and just as good the second time. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection! Friendly and attentive staff. Thanks!

Cute little restaurant just off Gold Coast Highway.Staff friendly and knowledgable. Tight little menu,we shared Asparagas with shredded Parmisan and Fritto Misto Di Pece.Plenty of prawns,Calamari and Octopus. A bottle of Pinot Gris rounded off the meal nicely.

Fantastic Italian food at reasonable prices. We all had different dishes, the entrees were great, along with pastas and an array of pizzas. Tried the lemincello spritz which was pretty good.

The menu is not huge, which we believe is a sure way to master every dish. Chef and his staff deliver good food. It was just the two of us, and we were very satisfied indeed. Don't know whether it was a timing thing, but...my Pizza was piping hot , however, my husbands pasta, could have been hotter too.More

There’s a lot of Asian and Taco restaurants in Burleigh but not a lot of Mexican and our son had enough burgers… so went here. It was pretty decent - very tasty but not sophisticated. Good service. We had the olives (basic) and the pizza...fritta to start (super delicious! The bowl was full but my kids ate them so quick the photo only has 3 left!!). Also ordered tagliatelle bolognese, lasagna and spaghetti gamberi - served quickly and tasty. Wouldn’t hurry back though, I can cook that at home, as it was a bit basic.More

Our starter of garlic bread took 45 minutes and was burnt, flavours and house made chilli oil were delicious however. My dinner guests enjoyed the bolognaise tagliatelle, however I had the special of mussels and spaghetti, which all the mussels were uncleaned, gritty and very...overcooked and rubbery. The sauce consisted of olive oil and roughly chopped parsley - this dish was priced at $36 dollars as a special. rip off. Sitting next to us was a large group who were terrible. Drunk, messy and so so loud, yelling, swearing and smoking in the doorway of the restaurant whilst the front of house staff refused to do anything to improve the situation whilst several tables left before us due to this. we were a table of 4 and they were a table of 15+. Unfortunately we decided to leave before we had finished our meal as that large table started heckling us, then applauded when we left. Completely ridiculous that we had to put up with that as we had done nothing to them, and generally when you go to a restaurant you expect to be able to hear the person next to you, or the waiters/waitresses.Not to mention, management suggested we move tables as response to our experience. I would strongly recommend against visiting this restaurant. the front of house and wait staff do not care in the slightest about their customers experience and it seems the chefs are not too far behind them. very disappointing and poor experience waste of money and will not be returningMore

It’s been a longtime between visits but how pleasing to see that the excellent quality of food and service and the really welcoming vibe are still there. Consistency is king at Osteria. We were glad we’d booked as even on a Sunday night people were...turned away. We choose the Margarita pizza and the gnocchi with vodka. Pizzas have always been really authentic so we knew what to expect. The gnocchi had an amazing flavour and will feature on our next visit. We enjoyed a bottle of Trebbiano which really complemented the food. Service was friendly, knowledgable and very efficient.More

My family of eleven (three generations) dined here tonight and had a fantastic experience. We are from Melbourne and my husband and I visited previously in February this year. The ambience is terrific and Carly and Tina looked after us very well. The food is...fantastic: we enjoyed beautiful entrees, pastas and pizzas, and everything was served efficiently and promptly. Service was definitely with a smile. We have dined in most of the restaurants in Burleigh and always return here for the authentic Italian food, and great service. Highly recommended!More

Of course with Italian wine… everything was delicious and with Italian taste! (We are Italian) The place is simple but genuine,...the atmosphere is beautiful and the service is lovely.
