$200 for 4 drinks, kids chicken fingers, a caprese salad and chicken parm. Waitress did her best with long wait times in what seemed to be an understaffed location. Will not be returning.

Understandably the service wasn’t great. Understand everyone is short staffed. Took a long time to get drinks ordered and took a long time to receive drinks. But restaurant lost out on revenue from second of drinks.

Where the issue was that we ordered mussels app and 5 mussels were not opened and 3 were empty. We told the manager and waitress. No one every apologized offered to send us a half order or attempt to resolve in any fashion.

Serviced was unbelievably slow and manager was unresponsive! A training waitstaff dropped a few drinks on 2 of my children. Soaked one’s clothing, ruined another’s new sandals and the manager NEVER came over to see if e we were all right. Glass was everywhere . Worst birthday dinner.

Nice ambience, friendly service. We were seated and attended to quickly. Appetizers arrived quickly, and were ok. Entrees took forever to arrive, and were “meh” at best. Kids got spaghetti and meatballs. They were not too excited by it. We got the chicken piccata, which was too lemony and lacking in flavor/texture. We’ve had much better at Olive Garden and Bertuccis. All in all, we liked the ambience, the service was decent, but the food itself didn’t excite us enough to want to go back.

I have been to Osteria Nino on multiple occasions and have always been satisfied with the food and service but last night they were off their game. I got the shrimp scampi and it had practically no flavor. Our server rarely came to check on us, and never re-filled our water. Bread was great as always, drinks were perfect!

My first dining experience at this restaurant. Chosen as a convenient location with patio dining for a reunion with friends. I wanted to love it. I didn’t.

The outdoor patio was pleasant enough, overlooking the open air green space of an adjacent restaurant. The servers were eager and well meaning, but the tabletop remained a swampy mess throughout the evening as a result of the sweating water glasses. And the food was simply awful. Dry, tough, flavorless bread with bland olive oil. My chicken piccata was dry rigatoni with 4-5 capers, a few chunks of dry, tough chicken sitting atop a small pool of gray, watery “sauce”. I detected no hint of lemon, garlic, butter. oil, or seasoning of any kind. The chicken parm chosen by a friend looked similarly dry and unappealing. No one commented on the food positively or negatively. No one came close to finishing their meal. We all took home our leftovers. I thought I might salvage the remains of my meal with some lemon and butter. But by the time I arrived home the eco-friendly takeout container was a soggy mess and had leaked the gray, watery “sauce” all over the inside of my carryall tote.

It was lovely to see old friends — the real point of the evening — but this was just an awful meal. I cannot recommend this restaurant and will not return.

Made reservations for 8, no problem, then had to add 2 more, no problem. Ordered 5 different appetizers and 3 salads. All were delicious. My Italian mom made the best meatballs, yours were close. John our waiter was super. Thank you,

Got to reservation on time, seated right away. Didn't get a waitress for an hour after I had to ask another waitress for one. Slow. Pizzas were very good but bolognese was not very good.
Drinks were great.

Had dinner here for a 6:45 reservation for 4 people and got seated right away. Our waitress was very nice and personable. Bread was very good and we ordered appetizers of the meatballs and parmesan truffles which were very tasty. We did have a little wait on the appetizers and our waitress did check on it and apologized that the kitchen was a little backed up but that was fine with us, it was worth the little wait. Entrees were delicious. Two of us had the rigatoni bolognese which were wonderful and the gnoochi sorrentina was a big hit and the spaghetti came out perfect. Overall it was a pleasant experience and I would come back again

Our server was very good. Food was delicious and came out hot!
The fact that they had the doors open with a live band in the courtyard took away from the dinner music they were playing inside. This made things very loud and wasn’t an enjoyable ambiance

I had gone for brunch on Mother’s Day and I did not go that well since they were understaffed. After my review manager reached out to me to come back, I did and I’m pleased to say the food was tremendous the service was great if you go there you must try the mussels, And the service people did everything to make up for the first time to do was a mistake. Thank you so much for the managers there in the service your food is tremendous I will be back

Met up with four friends for dinner on the patio. Great service and food. Beautiful night but nice that they have heaters as well. Great spot to also hear live music playing in between this and another restaurant.
