OGGI is by far my favorite restaurant! My husband and I have gone there for all of our special occasions and just because for the past 4 years. The food is outstanding, as well as the service. We love OGGI!!!

I want to start off by express the staff and atmosphere are both lovely. It has been some time since we last visited Oggi and have had better experiences in the past. The menu was altered for Mother’s Day. We started with the meatballs which were wonderful and served over polenta. I ordered a quinoa salad which in the past was a very healthy large entree sized salad. Sadly it came out as a small side salad portion at an $11 cost, and an additional $11 to add protein. My husband was underwhelmed with a pasta recommendation. Adding our 2 kids meals and 2 drinks, it was quite the hefty lunch bill at $140 and left hungry.

The only thing I wasn't happy with is that only had a special Mother's day menu which I get a lot of restaurants do because of the busyness of that day. Overall we had a lovely time

Great spot, the food was amazing. Our server, Hannah was great and accommodating and our meal was great (despite the restaurant being so busy). The pastas (made in house) were really tasty. I had the Fettucine Pasta special that involved a roasted red pepper cream sauce, shrimp, and mushrooms - SO GOOD.

The food was exceptional and your wait staff was very professional and friendly. However, it was extremely;y noisy in the main restaurant. We were seated in the enclosed outdoor area, so it didn't bother us too much. We would definitely go again, but not on the weekend.

I actually love Oggi so take this with a grain of salt. Our order took a long time due to a large prom party that got their order in before us. The server made it right by giving us free dessert but the veal marsala was not good which is not normal. I have ordered this dish before and loved it very much. Someone spilled black pepper on one of the pieces of veal and it was all I could taste. The marsala sauce didnt taste right either. That said, my wife's crab ravioli was amazing as was my son's fettuccini carbonara. Service is always amazing despite the missteps so I still highly recommend Oggi. Just disappointed with last night's visit.

Chicken Parmesan was delicious. The sauce was well balanced and flavorful. Nice bright red color as it should be. The pasta portion was on the slight side. Would have greatly appreciated a larger quantity. Wife's red snapper was well prepapred and seasoned as well. We will definitely return.

We have been going to Oggi since it opened. The food and service are very good. The noise level is impossible. A few weeks ago on a Tuesday night they agreed last minute to a party of 50 but were understaffed. We ordered appetizers and left. On last Saturday I specified porch thinking it might be quieter but there were 2 parties of 6 who were drinking heavily and got louder . I would like ti have stayed for coffee and dessert but it was miserable and gave up. I understand desire to accommodate as many as possible but we may have to find elsewhere if we cannot eat without people next to us screaming at each other. It really ruins the dining experience.

Overall an exceptional restaurant. Food excellent, service well above average considering the crowd, a little pricey for the area but worth it for a special occasion.
As in almost every restaurant around here, sound deadening would go a long way to allowing inter table conversation.

We celebrated our anniversary at OGGI this past Friday night and it was awesome! From the mussels appetizer to the wine our waiter suggested to the amazing entrees, everything added up to a wonderful dining experience. We highly recommend OGGI for a special event or just when you want to treat yourself to a delicious dinner.

We arrived though I requested my favorite server, we were first directed to another section until I voiced that I wanted Vincent- we were then shown to his section.I did expect more for celebrating our anniversary-complimentary dessert ???I did make it very clear on my Open Table reservation that it was a special occasion Yes I will go back but I expected more for a repeat patron.

This place never disappoints! Everything from service to food are always fabulous. Tonight was a girls night with my daughter. We ordered the calamari/zucchini appetizer, then fettuccine and pasta Bolognese. Everything was perfect. I added shrimp to my fettuccine instead of pancetta and it was perfect. The pasta is absolutely delicious.

Or meals were wonderful! Had the lobster ravioli, fettucine alfredo, and spaghetii & meatballs, and all of the dishes were perfect. The seating was a little old/uncomfortable, and the inside looked like it needed some updates, but other than that, we would go back in a heartbeat!

We have been to Oggi's before and have enjoyed it. On this occasion we went for my Dad's birthday. The 2017 Castellare Di Castellina Chianti Classico was a bit overpriced at $56. The noise level is a little loud. The food was very fresh and flavorful. Overall, a very nice family restaurant with delicious food.

compared to other Italian restaurants in the area this was not worth the money. The food was just okay. there was 5 of us. My husband's dinner was not good. My daughter's came out cold. My sons was fine and we had to send my dinner back since I have a gluten allergy and the dinner was served with bread on the plate even after we told them what my allergies were. It took a long time for them to get our drink order then longer to get food. Except for the hostess the staff was not attentive at all. It was my husband's birthday and most restaurants would offer a free dessert especially to a table that is ordering alcohol, appetizers and desserts along with the main course but they did not.

The food and service were amazing and we are more than likely going to return. The only bad thing was the noise level. I guess this is a good thing for the restaurant (they were busy!) but it did make it hard to have a much needed quiet dinner out. That being said, we still walked away pleased as everything else was awesome!

Loved the service and atmosphere. Many of the dishes include fresh pasta made in-house. It s very good. Overall, we loved everything. 4 because the bolognese was rather bland, but I realize that's a personal opinion. We will definitely go back and I recommend that you go.
