Love this Place
This is one of my favorite go-to restaurants when I'm entertaining clients and for special occasions. The menu is diverse and sophisticated yet offers something for everyone.

Our waitress was very attentive, as opposed to some of the reviews I read before eating there. We were able to make a reservation on-line and were seated as soon as we arrived and received wonderful service. We had two seafood dishes--the frutti di mare pasta and the pizza. The pizza was a little spicy, but the pasta was wonderful. We lived in Italy for several years and visit often and finding Italian food that is up to par is difficult, but the pasta could have been served in a restaurant in Italy. Dessert was very good, as well.

I've lived in the area for 10+ years and don't know why I've never been to Osteria Laguna before. It was fantastic. Great menu options, very good pastas. Our favorites were the stuffed focaccio with ribiola cheese, the octopus salad was perfectly cooked, homemade cavatelli & papparelle.

This restaurant is consistently really good and sometimes serves great food. I had a red snapper special that was excellent. It is good for business and non business meals.

The staff at Osteria Laguna made me feel like royalty. The food was more than outstanding from the appetizers, to the special plates that appeared, and then the entrees. I really can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant. You will not be disappointed! My only disappointment is that I live in Chicago and not NYC so that I could frequent this restaurant!

My colleague and I have been planning for months to have lunch at Osteria Laguna just for their lasagna! It was absolutely wonderful, worth the wait and worth going back for. It's a must try..

I had a special appetizer - a crab salad with prosciutto, seaweed, etc -- that was REALLY OUTSTANDING! Seafood risotto was amazing too.

Great Authentic Italian Food
We visited the restaurant for the second time this weekend while in NY on a weekend break. The food was delicious with plenty of fresh ingerdients. The menu contains lots of options that are suitable for vegetraians which was an added bonus. The wine list was also very good as was the great selection of olives and breads that we received before the meal arrived. Cannot find fault.
5/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was excellent! Not too filling which is good! The wine was great. Service was a little impersonal but our server had quite a few tables.

Good location, good restaurant
We stayed at the Westin across the street, and when we were tired of trudging through the rain, wanted a good meal close by. Osteria came through! Good food, busy but not crazy. Very attentive service. Drinks average for being so pricey, but food portions were just right. The bowl of olives to start with, along with bread and olive oil, was a really nice surprise.

Loved this restaurant. We stopped by earlier in the day to request a table by the open French doors and were told they couldn't hold those tables since they are so in demand especially for just 2 people. When we got there they had in fact reserved the table for us. That was so nice. On to the food. We started with Spiedini Di Calamari which was delicious served over a bed of arugula. Dressed just so. I had the Risotto with wild mushrooms and parmesan. Delicious. My husband had penne Bolognese which was not on the menu but they were happy to make for him. He really enjoyed that. We did not have dessert but did have espresso and cappuccino. We sat for almost 2 hours and were not made to feel rushed in any way. Service was very friendly.

Great spot near Grand Central
Food was outstanding. My husband and I each had one of the evening's specials and they were both delicious. I was not as impressed with the bar, but overall, our dining experience was very good and we would go back.

Italian in NY
Delightful and different. Well prepared traditional items. Carpaccio and octopus were outstanding. Also check out the pappardelle with lamb ragu and the salmon ravioli. The wine list was good and reasonable.

Good foot in informal setting with very good service. Wine list is also well priced and varied.

My GG review
I have now eaten in this restaurant twice when traveling to NY on business and pleasure. Love the food and location and service is always good.
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
What a great meal! We had the calamari to start and the mozarella and tomato salad...mozarella is to die for. The bread basket was also great. I had the chicken and it was flavorful. We will be back.

We have been to this restaurant several times and have never been disappointed.The food just keeps getting better and better.Recommend the homemade pastas.

This restaurant is centrally located and offers great food and service. It's one of my favorites each time I return to NYC. I treated my niece to a special dinner here for her graduation before we set out for a Broadway show. The staff was extremely accommodating. Thanks!

Food with decibels
The food was great, I mean really great. The price was extremely reasonable.Very affordable. My only ding is the noise. Extremely loud and hard to hear people at your table. If you have great hearing, you will love it. If not, be prepared. In any event, the food and value trumps the noise by far. Enjoy.

Standard Italian food, served in a really comfortable setting with a friendly and attentive staff.

We have had dinner at this restaurant several times and are never disappointed. We dined with friends from Europe who also thought the food was delicious, the service great and that the interior looks nice.
We definitely will be back!

Always walked past and finally stopped in. Pasta was delicious (paparadelle and cavatelle dishes). Our waiter was extremely friendly. The hostess not so much, but who cares. Will definitely return. Not cheap, not worth the money.

Very good food and service.
I was there on Friday night for a girls night out dinner. The waiter was very good. The food was very good and so was the wine. It's a pretty looking place also. I would recommend.

never a bad choice
been here quite a few times and always have a good meal at a good price.
back of the restaurant is usually quieter (unless there is a large party going on. in general the tables are well-placed with space between them and space on them!

Wonderful Dining Experience
I just had my rehearsal dinner for my wedding at Osteria Laguna.
My now husband and I love to go to Osteria Laguna whether it be for brunch on the weekends or dinner any night of the week.
The food at the restaurant is amazing. Everything is so delicious and the atmosphere is fantastic.
Our private party was also awesome.
The staff at Osteria Laguna made everyone feel comfortable.
Diana who helped us to coordinate our event is extremely easy to work with and made sure that we were fully taken care of.
We picked out our menu and were able to customize everything. It was definitely the easiest part of my wedding planning.
I really recommend Osteria Laguna for a normal meal out or a private event, trust me you will not be disappointed.

Had a great lunch here. Smashing red snapper with lots of cooked vegetables. We shared a delicious salad with parmesan cheese before the entree. The cook here is terrific. No complaints. We could even easily hear each other talk in this busy East Side restaurant close to Grand Central Station!

I enjoy coming here a lot and have done so many times but generally alone while on business or with one or two others. This time, we had a large group (7 of us) and the food was very good and tasty as expected but service could have been a little more on the ball.
