    A top notch dining experience and first class restaurant. This is the best Italian restaurant you'll find anyway near here. From the outside you would not be impressed but one inside you'll be very impressed. From the moment you call to make a reservation to when you pay and leave, the staff will treat you with respect and professionalism. The food is fabulous and we loved every bite from our appetizers to the dessert. Staff pay a lot of attention to you and you feel special here. It is expensive but definitely worth every penny. Highly recommend for special occasions or to impress a date ;-)

    From the outside this restaurant doesn't look much. It's in an unassuming strip mall with nothing to make it very appealing or inviting, but once inside you're taken away to what feels like an intimate family run bistro somewhere in Italy. It's very old school with dated food you've seen on menus for decades with table side theater expected of classy Italian eateries. It's also old school in other ways too, you'll need reservations (they appear to want to make you feel privileged to dine here), they seem to avoid any kind of social media activity or website and don't post their menu online. However, the food is fucking delicious! Like I said, it is dated but it really delivers the favors of Italy well with impeccable service.

    The raviolis are excellent and the pappardelle was perfect. The sea bass was like butter with the most incredible flavors. The risotto made in the cheese wheel should be on everyone's must have dishes in their lifetime list. Desserts were cliched but equally as good. Portion sizes are catered to the American so are huge and definitely larger than they need to be, and so is the check! It's not a cheap night here and it will set you back a big chunk of your week's pay check. But this is a special occasion restaurant is worth the splurge.

    Visit here for a very special evening out and enjoy having your every culinary need taken care of with highly professional yet friendly service.

    PS: I dropped a star for the atmosphere rating due the outside needing some attention. It could easily be made more inviting.

    Who would of known this restaurant was here? From the outside it's very nondescript in an old strip mall type building, but it has absolutely the best service and top notch food around! We have had the best meals anywhere since moving here and tried some top dining locations from Orlando to Jacksonville. This is a small intimate restaurant with impeccable service usually only associated with big high end city restaurants.

    The food is class on a plate with light and bright dishes packed with flavor. It's made fresh and you can really taste the difference. It's not entirely modern food but you'll find some cooking techniques that are definitely new to this area with some dishes offering table side theater.

    It's on the expensive side but worth every cent and should be on top of your locations for important celebrations. Call for reservations though.

    Excellent service - excellent food - delicious - there is no place that meets the exquisite food found here locally. I recommend for those special moments in your life and when you want a wonderful dining experience. Looking forward to my next visit. Special place for special dining experience.

    Portion was very small for my order. When I inquired to the owner, I received a comment that food costs are high. Very noisy and tight seating. For the price I would not go back.

    My friends and I dined here last evening. We were the last table seated on a Monday and had the restaurant to ourselves. The owner/chef walked us through the menu and offered suggestions. The pasta dishes were made table side which was a treat. The salt baked fish from the Mediterranean was exceptional. This is a hidden gem in Palm Coast/Flagler. The service was as good as the dishes. Make sure to save room for the desserts. We enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend the Osteria.

    I have been to Osteria Rustica several times and have dished out a few gift certificates too, but I've never written a review, until now. I'm not Italian, but you don't have to be Italian to know good Italian food. Osteria has yet to disappoint. The menu here is versatile enough to accommodate all with plenty of mid priced and high end entrees including daily specials. The meet and greet is part of the shtick so I suggest you just roll with it. I find the staff to be passionate, professional and ready to welcome any customer that walks in the front door. In my opinion, this small, family run establishment delivers on all fronts... service, vibe and flavor.

    Buon Appetito

    We decided to see what all the rave was about from all the positive reviews on this restaurant and we are Italian so yes we know what true Italian food should taste like.That being said, we were a little disappointed.

    First the tables are quite close to each other and we could not hold a conversation without being overheard by the entire place as they are sitting less than 2 feet away from you. Or listening to other conversations that we wanted no part of. Second the portions are very little for what you pay for, we had one appetizer, two entrees and two glasses of wine. The seafood appetizer was literally 8 black mussels, 6 clams, half of squid and one shrimp boiled with a drizzle of sauce. My veal was maybe 6 oz of meat with a drizzle of marsala and a quarter squash and half a carrot. The fish was 6 to 8 oz filet and 3 oz scoop of rice, 4 oz of lobster bisque drizzled over that and 3 oz of veggies. Our bill was over 100 dollars! We left hungry.

    The food was cooked properly but the taste is far from authentic. I suppose if you are used to Olive Garden this is a slight step above that but not worth the money at all. The cook or host came to our table and spoke for a few minutes as with the other tables but it seems like its part of the show. The other tables enjoyed the interaction with him but he was trying too hard with the Italian accent and kissing everyone cheek to cheek. Its more of a theme restaurant than a actual Osteria that you truly find in Italy. Italians know that the kitchen and food is the center of attention in a home or an Osteria. Well, lesson learned. I was fooled once into trying this place with all the reviews but never again.

    With just 10 tables and enough staff to give personal attention, this is clearly one of the best dinning experiences in a Flagler County. This restaurant should be in a large city. This food is fresh and presentation is exceptional. I was concerned that the prices were a little high at first, but once the food was served the value is exceptional.
