The house Cab and both of our entrees were top notch, as always. I was a little disappointed with service because I wrote a note with the reservation that it was our 1st wedding anniversary, and there was no mention of it or opportunity given to bring this up. That really would have made the evening extra special. Onesto remains one of my favorite dinner spots, but recognition of dining for a specific reason would make the experience even better.

Onesto was great! Our server was fantastic and funny, she recommended a great bottle of wine as well as a dessert. She came around at the perfect times to not interrupt us (it was Valentine’s Day) but she never made us feel like she forgot about us! Will definitely be coming back!

Great Valentine's Day meal. My wife had the Fusilli which was a tasty al dente pasta, mushroom and asparagus dish. I had a delicious steak and merlot risotto. Excellent service and cute, casual atmosphere. Will definitely return.

Portion sizes have been cut down considerably from our last visit, while prices have not. I dont mind paying the prices for more food, but if you are going to go with "European portion sizing" prices should reflect a 15-20% cut.

The food was good, excellent burrata appetizer. The downfall of the night was that our entrees came out when we were still working on the app. When I made the reservation I noted it was our anniversary. It was disappointing that we were rushed by our server and were not able to savour the night. It was a good meal, but the service/timing made me feel Onesto did not want us there (maybe because my partner and I did not want alcohol). We would have stayed for dessert, but decided to go home since we felt rushed and not attended to. We were there for 45 minutes at most.

Still an overall good experience, I am a server myself and understand things happen and its covid, but I would not go here for a special night in the future.

Casual intimate feel, great for a drink in the afternoon or an evening for dinner. (Summer is always nice within the outdoor area) Our server was kind and helpful. We had great food... chef Adam is amazing! Thanks Onesto!

I’m not one to rant and rave about Italian food (I’m really not even the biggest fan of it) but this restaurant was amazing. Pasta itself and flavors were perfect in both of our dishes; you could tell they use high quality ingredients including the olive oil put out with the bread. Overall I enjoyed coming here. Will definitely be back soon!

Took my daughter who is a Nurse out for dinner. Great food and service!! Best Italian in a long while. Only issue was the red wine, I told the server the Italian wine tasted like it had been open for a few days. Server only promised she would do something for us if we ordered more wine.....

Always so good! This restaurant is one of my staples because of their consistency......they really have amazing food. We had a full meal, but a shout out on the Calamari ...ohhh, yum! Loved the spice, sauciness + our server brought us extra bread....we're not afraid of carbs soooo, that was a bonus!!

The mushroom salad was AMAZING and my petite sirah was delicious!!! I was super excited to try the eggplant but it wasn’t great... definitely wouldn’t get it again, would have been better without all of the seeds and with a bit more flavor. Server was attentive but not personal or nice, just came and took orders and left.
