    We had the Devour menu. Started with meatballs and mussels - both were pretty good but not hot. We told our waitress and a manager came over to ask about it. She comped a glass of wine which was nice. Entrees were also pretty good, but not great. Waitress was friendly and efficient.

    Week day evening before snow storm. Our booth was quiet. Service and Food were great. Even though it is under the same roof as grocery store, don't let that fool you. It is separate and the atmosphere is that of a nice restaurant. Not loud.

    The server acted like it was his first night. There wasn’t hardly anyone in the place yet it took forever to get our cocktail and dinner. My chicken piccata was so bad, I didn’t eat it. Atmosphere feels like a cafeteria.

    We walked into the restaurant for our reservation and the hostess immediately without even greeting us said they weren’t sitting anyone at the moment. I told her we had a reservation and she said with an attitude it doesn’t matter we can’t sit anyone. I asked her how long it would be and she couldn’t get me an answer. I understand being short staffed but you could have closed reservations on this app. I wasted my time and gas driving all the way there. The hostess didn’t have to be rude about it either. Don’t think I will be returning.

    It was quite a wait because the servers were understaffed, but the assistant manager handled it all extremely well despite the visible stress. She was very calm and polite in accommodating a very busy waiting area on a Friday night. The food was very good and along with the service our wait became a non event.

    Food was great! Service was not good. Finally stopped and asked a waiter to grab waters for the table after 25 minutes of being seated. They sat far too many parties for how few servers they had.

    Second time visiting, excellent service. We shared a Caesar Salad which was enormous. Biggest croutons I have ever seen. I had the Cioppino, excellent but a touch spicier than I thought it might be. Plenty of seafood and delightful broth. My wife had the Salmon the first time we visited and said it was one of the best she had ever had. She chose it again this time, but this time, it was a little overcooked to her liking and said the quality was not as good. Great restaurant, good service. We will definitely be back as it is now one of our Go To restaurants for a good meal.

    This is my second visit to Osteria, and I was hoping for a better experience this time at lunch, but it didn’t happen. While the ambiance is nice, and our server efficient and courteous, my salad was mediocre at best.

    The Locally Sourced lamb shank was to die for! We started with a charcuterie plate and the meatballs. Both were lovely to look at and better to devour! Others had the truffle fries, salmon, pasta, steak and all was devoured! The pistachio cake and the ricotta cheesecake were so good - my brother remarked that their pastry chef was better than a lot of the places he has eaten in NYC. Highly recommended!

    Had to wait about 15 minutes before anyone came to our table. No water, nothing. But, when our server finally came to us, he was very good and the food was excellent. We will definitely return sometime. Maybe it was just bad luck having to wait.

    Was severely understaffed. After being there a half an hour, only part of our table had even received water. Waiter forgot to put in our appetizer order. Two people in our party never received the alcoholic drinks that they ordered. We were there an hour before the waiter took our dinner order. Two out of the six of us received Luke warm food. The chicken piccata that I ordered was over cooked and very dry. Everyone else said their food tasted ok, but not great. I was very disappointed overall.

    Excellent cocktails/wines and food - martinis (vodka & gin), glasses of white wine options, caesar salad pizza (arugula/prosciutto), ragu & meatball pastas. Split some of the dishes without any problems. Service was friendly, attentive and professional. Appreciated the chef visiting our table twice to check on how our dinners were. Service by Joey C. was outstanding.

    We enjoyed a lovely Friday dinner here and appreciated delicious Italian dishes in the casual setting. The Frutti Di Mare was full of mussels, shrimp, and squid with perfectly al dente squid ink pasta. Fabio is known for his meatballs and the Pasta Polpetti delivered with an intricate balance of Parmesan and Ricotta. The Pasta Alla Boscaiola absolutely stole the evening with its amazing Parmesan cream sauce and perfect al dente pasta. Don’t pass on the cast iron focaccia appetizer — it complemented our meal wonderfully.

    The food was excellent, and our server was very good. The menu is somewhat limited, particularly on pasta dishes which was a surprise given that it's an Italian restaurant. Also, I would give it a higher overall rating but for two things lacking that I expect from a good Italian restaurant. One, no bread is served, and the menu offered none. I had a pasta dish with a cream sauce and would have liked to have bread to dip in it. Two, Caesar salad is not offered as a side. The one on the menu is entree size and priced as such.

    The hostess was very rude. Booth wasn’t available we were told, yet when we left over an hour later there were 4-5 booths still open. There was zero attempt to accommodate our wish. Service was very slow and waitress kept forgetting things. Reservation comments included that we were celebrating a birthday, but there was zero mention of that throughout the entire experience and certainly no special attention was given. We will never come back.

    The food was excellent!l All 4 of us loved our meals. Amongst us, we had the Osteria pizza, roasted salmon, paste e polpetti, and fruitti de mare. All were cooked perfect, good sized portions and delicious. We were seated at a table in the middle of the restaurant, which was a little loud. I’ve sat in a booth before and recommend that if possible. We had a newer waitress who was still learning and a little unsure of things, but she gave it her best. We ordered drinks and waited over 20 minutes for them to arrive. When they did, 3 of the 4 beers ordered were flat. Upon pointing it out, our waitress replaced them with a different beer we selected. Overall a good meal albeit with somewhat slow and imperfect service.
