We had our wedding ceremony and reception at Osteria Via Stato and everything was absolutely amazing. We have not stopped receiving compliments on the wedding, atmosphere, location, and service! Our family and friends loved the food, wine, drinks and everything Osteria had to offer. The entire staff went above and beyond to make me and my guests feel relaxed and allowed us to really enjoy our wedding day. Book your wedding or next event at Osteria Via Stato if you want to have an amazing time, amazing food, and basically be the coolest person on Earth in the eyes of your friends and family.

We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and Osteria and the staff made everything so stress free, easy, and amazing. They had the tables set exactly how I had imagined them. And everything was absolutely beautiful! The staff was so friendly and helpful. I knew the first time we went to Osteria that that was where my husband and I were supposed to have our special day, but I was pleasantly surprised by the impeccable service throughout the year. Thank you so much for all your help and for making our day so memorable and special.

The atmosphere was very inviting and the ceremony was beautiful in the intimate space. The staff set the mood with dozens of candles being lit for the night. Our guests couldn’t rave enough about the food and how cozy and welcoming the space felt to them. This coming from Italians was confirmation for me that I selected the right place. It was outside the box and a long way from a traditional hall but it provided a truly unique experience for all. Without hesitation I would book any event at Osteria Via Stato. Thank you Osteria Via Stato for making our wedding nothing short of spectacular!
