What They Say

Kate + Stephen, May 2021

Hi Osteria team,

Stephen and I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you did for us in the lead up to our wedding and throughout the big day. We are absolutely over the moon with how the whole event turned out and we couldn’t have asked for a better day! The venue was absolutely stunning, the food was unreal and the service was second to none. Everything ran so smoothly and we were able to sit back and take in every moment.

We also wanted to thank you again for sticking by us during our 2020 Covid postponement and for working with us during the second little Covid scare in the weeks leading up to our day. We felt so supported by you all and you made everything so easy for us, we honestly can’t thank you enough for that.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you again! We wish you all nothing but the best for the future, Kate & Stephen

Stephanie Bidewell, March 2021

I got married at Osteria early this month, it was AMAZING. The perfect venue!

I had so many of my guests say how lovely the venue / food / overall day was! I would highly recommend Osteria.

Liz Pforr, April 2021

A beautiful venue with fantastic food, indoor and outdoor spaces for your wedding. It’s a blank canvas for putting together your own individual touches.

Jamiee-Lee + Jack, April 2021


Our guest cannot stop raving about the service, food and atmosphere! Best wedding they’ve been to, they keep saying.

Jack and I feel so privileged to have had our wedding with you at Osteria!

WOW! What a stand out venue!

Natalie + Reece, April 2021

Thank you for everything Osteria did for our special day.

Planning a wedding during a pandemic is certainly very stressful and there were many worries along the way BUT the day was executed better than we ever could have imagined.

We will be forever grateful.

Brianna Oastler, December 2020

We held our wedding at Osteria and I cannot recommend them highly enough!

As with most 2020 couples, planning a wedding was extremely stressful and had us having to completely change plans 4 times. We dealt with Nadia to originally organise a lunch at Osteria Cafe after our ceremony and she was extremely professional, helpful and responsive.

A few days out from the wedding it was forecast to rain heavily and we needed a last minute change of plans. I have never experienced anyone as helpful, responsive and caring as the team at Osteria.

The team organised for us to hold our ceremony in their stunning garden and our reception in the beautiful barn. The team were in the midst of renovating and went above and beyond to ensure the space was perfect for our wedding with only a few days notice.

Osteria is truly the most magical place to hold your wedding.

Jaimie + Jarred, December 2020

Osteria were fabulous! 3 days before our beach wedding, a cyclone hit! And osteria welcomed us with open arms! And they went out of their to make sure our day was memorable and special!

The venue is incredible! We used the garden and indoor when the rain hit! The ceremony we had outdoors which was picturesque and indoors catered for a private dance floor for us as newly weds!

Thank you osteria for making our day perfect in such short notice!

Tara Graham, November 2019

After years of eating here weekly, we knew it was the perfect venue for our wedding. Zero regrets – stunning venue, fantastic service and the best food of any wedding we’ve ever attended.

Thank you for making our day so special.

Kelly + Brett, May 2019

Our day could not have been more perfect!

All the staff at Osteria were fantastic with both the lead up to he wedding and on the day coordination to ensure everything went smoothly.

The Italian shared meals were incredible & staff did a great job of keeping everyones glasses full!

We highly recommend Osteria & thank you all for your guidance and support in making our day so special.

Alyce + Cameron, Aug 2018

Cameron and I got married there on the 7th of September and it was perfect and if anything had gone wrong I certainly didn’t realise.

The venue was stunning, the food was so delicious and I’m sure we pretty much drank you dry (that’s country weddings for you) but we couldn’t have asked for anything more.

Millie was a fantastic presence on the day who I felt went above and beyond including giving me a whole plate of pizza to myself (the down fall of being a bride is all the talking and not enough eating and I was starving).

I could send though hundreds of pictures but I just wanted to attach a few pictures of our wonderful day to share with you all.

And again thank you so much! Our wedding wouldn’t have been what it was without you all.


Tara + Cameron, Nov 2018

I just wanted to thank you all very much for making our day so amazing last Thursday.

Issy you helped me so through to organising process asking all my question and then Millie and liv just made the day run so smooth for us. I can’t thank you all enough.

The food was amazing. Everyone wants the lamb again.


Kassy + Andrew, Nov 2018

Just wanted to send you a quick email just to say a big thank you to you. You are incredible at your job, thank you for calming me the day before.
Andrew and I had THE BEST day/night!

Our plan B looked incredible! Probably even better than our original plan haha.

I’ve never planned a wedding before but you and the Osteria team made it easy and stress free. You guys have an amazing venue!!

Elissa + Michael, May 2018

Its now sadly 3 months since our wedding day so I thought I should just send you guys an email to say Thank you so so much for our fabulous wedding day.

Everything was perfect and even better than we could have ever dreamed off. You certainly have a one of a kind venue and your staff are amazing! We love that we can always stop in and get breakky, lunch or dinner and reminisce on the day because we love the Osteria food.

Again, Thank you so so much. It was a day we will never forget.

Nakita + Paul, May 2018

The moment we walked into this venue we were in love with it. Everything about Osteria is perfection!

Having our Wedding day here was everything I could of ever dreamed of as a bride! The staff were amazing, not only on the day but every time we have visited! These guys run this place like a well oiled machine! So professional and know exactly what they are doing!!

Osteria now holds a very very special place in my heart! I cant thank the team enough for giving us THE perfect day!


THANK YOU!!! Words will never do justice to just how perfect our wedding day was at Osteria. From the minute I saw the venue way back last year, I loved it & knew it was right.

We wanted a fun, casual yet sophisticated wedding & you delivered it perfectly. Nothing was ever a problem & you went above & beyond. We really do want to thank you all for your help to make the day run perfectly.

To the wait staff & the amazing chefs/kitchen staff – thank you. For accomodating all our dietary requirements (all my pregnant friends are still talking about the food)!

Isabel – thank you for answering our endless emails (especially about wine)!! You never once made us feel like we were painful (although I am sure we were at times)!

Tessa – thank you for running the evening seamlessly. You were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble & you delivered. My parents & our MC couldn’t speak highly enough of you. Thank you! I hear you may have shed a tear too in our speeches (you weren’t the only one)!!!


I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything that you did to make sure Sufyaan and I had the most incredible wedding! It is definitely a day I will never forget, and because of you, my dream wedding was achieved.  I hope to see you soon and I will definitely be back at Osteria.

Christle Cooper, June 2017

Hi Isabel,

I just wanted to email you to say a big big thank-you to Osteria and yourself for helping us have the most amazing wedding night! We have had so many guests contact us over the past couple weeks to say that the reception was so beautiful and that the food was amazing (especially the lamb shanks! lol).

The whole night was everything Kerrod and I could have hoped for, and more, and we cannot thank you enough for all your help along the way and for helping it all go so smoothly on the day. You did such an amazing job and we just wanted to say thank-you.

Although the wedding day is over now, we will of course be popping in to enjoy a breakfast from time to time, and we hope to see you around.

Kristel + Dane, May 2017

Good Morning Tess and Isabel,

Just wanted to shoot an email to say thank you so much for all your work for our wedding on 19th May (the day that it didnt stop raining hahaha)

You guys honestly made the day run so smoothly, and everyone just had the best time! Tess you calmed my nerves, and even though it was torrential rain you calmed me and reassured me how amazing the inside ceremony would be.

The food, drinks, staff etc were impeccable! Everyone just said how amazing it all was.

Thanks again.

Laura + Tim, July 2017

Good evening beautiful ladies,

I just wanted to thank you both so much for making our wedding so unbelievably perfect. It was everything I imagined and more. Your friendly faces and genuine care for us and our guests didn’t go unnoticed and it is so clear that you know and love your job.

Your staff were fantastic, from the wait staff who ensured our guests had a drink in hand and enjoyed their time, to the chefs who served up delicious food- thank you all!

Jo Harding (Cuxson), June 2017

Dear Isabel and Team

Apologies that it has take me some time to write this to say a huge thank you for all your work and efforts to make our wedding at your venue amazing.

I have been telling all that will listen how impressed I was with everything, from start to finish.

Firstly thanks so much to your back of house team for the delicious food that was plentiful, beautifully presented and all super tasty. I loved it all especially the lemon meringue tart.

Thanks also to your team who clean up, set up and present the venue in such a magic way. Given the number of times they have done this they have it down to a fine art & it looks absolutely beautiful.

Thank you also to all of your front of house who were always smiling, helpful, and accomodating throughout the entire night. They made us feel like it was a special night for them, (not just that they were paid to be there.) Which is really a credit given I expect they have been to more weddings than most.

Also a big thanks to the owners who were super quick to say yes to an unusual request. Allowing the fire twirlers to perform was super & I think gave all our guests a real memory to take home with them.

Last but not least, Isabel thanks so much for all the advise and help with planning and also the details on the day. I was so impressed by how happy, helpful, professional and lovely you were throughout the whole process especially on the day (when I know it was an extra for you).

Isabel you and your team are a real credit to Osteria, and will be remembered fondly for making our big day so special.

If there is anything that I can do to help in anyway please don’t hesitate to contact me.

(Also I would send this directly to your boss if I knew how -maybe you can forward it on.)

Keep up the amazing work & good luck with all your future endeavours.

 Elisha + Luke, February 2017

We just wanted to take the time to thank you for all of your assistance in the lead up to and on the night of our wedding.  You and your staff were very attentive – the service was excellent.  We have received many comments from our guests on how great the food was – we both loved the meals, especially the hot chocolate tart.

Nothing was too much trouble for you on the night – including you offer to drive us home at the end of the night.  That was completely  unnecessary but the offer was very much appreciated.

We had a fantastic wedding at Osteria and would not hesitate to recommend your venue to friends and family.

Thank you once again.

 Carly + Kurt

First of all I just wanted to say thank you for booking us in on the weekend for the food tasting. I have not had an experience like that in quite some time.

The staff were amazing and friendly and the chef, well I don’t even know where to start! She made us feel so welcome and confident in the food and was so full of all the information we required, my parents in law were very impressed.

The food was the most amazing food that I have had in a long time and I am excited that my guests get to eat that on our day! We will definitely be coming back every year on our wedding anniversary to eat that amazing food.

Thank you so much once again for everything I am getting quite excited.

Caitlain + Josh

The staff at Osteria were amazingly helpful both the night before and on the day. Our Osteria wedding coordinator on the day, Isobel, was lovely and made sure everything ran smoothly.

Deborah Sandor was always ready to answer our questions and was wonderful about meeting with my parents about the venue when they travelled from interstate. Many of our guests remarked that it was the most beautiful food that they had ever had at a wedding.

We are so happy that we organised our venue through Casuarina Weddings, Osteria was everything we had dreamed of.

We really wanted our wedding to be a reflection of us as a couple, we didn’t want to do things simply because it was expected at a wedding. Osteria was the perfect space for this, it was a blank canvas where we were able to craft a wedding that suited us and celebrated our love for each other perfectly.

Ali + Craig

Hi Debbie,

I have been meaning to write to thank you for all your help for our wedding on the 8th!

Craig and I had the best day and will treasure memories of our wedding forever. The work by Lauren, Elise and Steve and Isabel exceeded our expectations – the venue looked incredible, the food was delicious, the Osteria staff were excellent, it was just perfect. And we couldn’t have been happier with the weather for our outdoors reception!

So many of our guests commented on how amazing the venue looked, the feasting style meals, being outdoors for the reception and how much they enjoyed their time at Casuarina, some even extended their stay!

Lindsey + Byron

Amazing food, drinks and service…everyone was raving from start to finish and days after! The garden area of Osteria was looking beautiful and we were lucky enough to have perfect weather to have our ceremony outside.

Annika + Lee

We have to say the biggest thank you to you all. It was the best day of our entire lives and I say that with all honesty. The venue and your staff and food and service was just INCREDIBLE.

Isabel knows how much we loved her but honestly I just want to tell you how fantastic she is! As are you!

We could not have asked for anything more from you all. So thanks from the bottom of our hearts.

Eloise + Hugh

We wanted to reach out and thank you so much for making our day so special. The team at Osteria were fantastic and very professional, and everything was better than we could have hoped.

The food was incredible (the lamb! the potatoes!!) – so many people also commented that they couldn’t get over how delicious it all was. We loved that it was all shared as well as it made for a much warmer, casual environment.

Thanks again for all of your help with Osteria and coordinating everything – it was the perfect venue for us and it was a magical afternoon and evening!

Denise + Phil

Words cannot express how grateful we were for your part in making our day soooo special. Your professionalism and attention to detail, just made us all so relaxed. I had complete confidence that it would be like that and it was.

We had a few people from the food and wine industry there and they were all so impressed too. We feel part of the Osteria family now so it will always have a special spot in my heart.

Please thank all the staff for us. They were fantastic.

I could keep going on about how we feel. I know it was the best night of Jon’s and Maggie’s life but other than the day we adopted that gorgeous kid…it was our best too.

Katie + Nathan

It was the most magical day and the experience of planning a wedding was made so much sweeter by your lovely staff.

From Deb, to Isabel to Tessa nothing was too much trouble for any of them and they all made us feel comfortable and special from the beginning of this process to the big day.

Also the professionalism of your staff on the day was second to none.

I have been recommending Osteria to anyone I encounter and I can’t wait for many more breakfasts, lunches and dinners at your beautiful venue.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
