Osteria Laguna named for the beautiful waterways of the famed Italian city offers a spacious and stylish contrast to the busy workday bustle of 42nd Street. Located steps away from the New York Helmsley, United Nations and the Chrysler Building, this charming northern Italian space is easily accessible to business and tourist crowds alike. Floor to ceiling front doors, antique country tables and a classic 30 foot mahogany bar lend a sense of relaxed refinement to this airy and spacious getaway.
Osteria Laguna’s menu offers contemporary sensibility and flair to the classic tastes of Northern Italy with an emphasis on fresh wholesome foods. From classic to cutting edge, there’s something for every appetite. Perfectly balanced pasta dishes, mouthwatering risotti, or the amazing array of piping hot dishes coming out of the charming brick oven at the center of the restaurant.

The waiter was brilliant, service was impeccable. The food surprised me, it was up there in the world of NYC restaurants
Restaurant was quiet, staff attentive in spite of reduction in servers and other staff. Food was good.
First time back since COVID19. Food was great but the white sauce with the spaghetti alla vongole was a bit strange this time seems like the accidentally spilled some red sauce in it. Other than that great service and food.
Oh and the martinis were perfect nice pour and not watered down.
This is a nice Italian restaurant near grand central. The service and atmosphere is classic casual italian elegance. The food was good just not stellar. We had bruschetta the tomatoes tasted wonderful but the bread was very dry and unflavorful. Spinach salad with beets was ok. My penne with tomato and basil sauce was very good. And the french rose was perfect light and crisp. Wait staff was top notch
Great food and pleasant service

An enjoyable meal in a pleasant restaurant with excellent service
entrees were delivered halfway through appetizers. That is rude. 8pm sitting and plenty empty tables on a rainy night.
Great to eat indoors again. Osteria Laguna picked up where it left off! Food is great and service was excellent!

Friendly, reliable neighborhood Italian. I’m so glad it is open after Covid!
I am so happy that you are open again. I missed you. It was so great to be back. The food was delicious. I will be back soon.
Exception good service, waiter was more than helpful. I went there with my niece and her two young kids and we dined outside. We had pizza which was very tasty. Food is a little expensive but to be expected for midtown.
The service was impeccable. They were always around for us to ask questions. The dining experience was truly safe with appropriate social distancing. The food was amazing. I got the oven baked fish and my wife got a seafood pasta dish, which we both devoured. Our friends also loved their food. We ordered a pizza and calamari for appetizers and couldn't have been happier. We finished dinner a round of desserts: tiramisu, molten chocolate lava cake, and crème brûlée.
Great place for business lunch. Big portions. Great social distancing layout and protocols.
Great food and service very warm vibe clean and cozy
Excellent food and service
Excellent service. Our waiter was great. Delicious food and creative specials. Loved the polenta balls!
I've been there twice, and both times, was impressed by how the chef prepares the fish on' the menu. Service was excellent. I recommended this place to a friend who later told me she loved it.
