I didn’t do any research into local cuisine before we ventured to Austria. From my days in culinary school, I had a general idea of what to expect. But, I didn’t have any specific plans for dining while we were in Salzburg.
On our first night there, the kids were looking for comfort food. We asked for a few recommendations from the hotel and decided on a nearby Italian restaurant. If it’s one thing we can count on when our kids are fussy, it’s their willingness to eat Italian food. Go figure.
As an aside, our daughter actually doesn’t like pizza from pretty much. That’s pretty heartbreaking for me, as you can imagine. The exception? Pizza when we’re in Italy. She can eat pizza pretty much every day during our Italy trips. As luck would have it, that now apparently extends to one restaurant in Salzburg.
L’Osteria was a perfect fit for what we needed. This was authentic Italian. Not too formal, but not overly casual. The pricing was pretty friendly as well. The menu only had a few categories (Antipasti, Salad, Pasta and Pizza) but there was plenty of variety in each of them. The food was all extremely high quality.
We focused on Primitivo for our wine selection and weren’t disappointed. The pizza and pasta choices all turned out perfectly. We started with pizza pane, enjoyed a pizza as a sampler and dined on carbonara, bolognese and other awesome pasta choices.
Dessert included homemade sorbet, tiramisu, strawberry parfait and a chocolate torte.
The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. If you have children, you’ll definitely want to choose outdoors.
While they got plenty soaked, the small waterfall and plastic balls the restaurant provided kept the kids busy the entire meal. There are a couple of videos below capturing our son, Charlie hard at work.
The Final Two Pennies
We were so thrilled with the restaurant choice we hit it twice during our trip. The staff was very accommodating and doted on the children. The portions were plentiful and everything came out from the kitchen hot and fresh.
L’Osteria is a gem. We feel lucky to have found it. It should definitely be on your list if you’re planning to be in Salzburg.
