The parking and waiting were horrible because it was Valentines Day. We definitely plan to return to find out how they are on a normal day. The food was very good.

Everything was great besides service. We were first seated next to the door and the large line at the door. So we asked to move because it was freezing. We waiting another 20 minutes and watched at-least 15 tables get seated before us. On top of it my girlfriend asked the waitress if she could substitute sauces on her dish. The waitress said “probably not but I will ask the cooks” she walked a maximum of 15 feet away while staying it view for about 3 minutes and came back to my girlfriend and said, “I asked the cook he said no...” you could have at-least stood in the kitchen and counted to 10 to make it more believable.

The food was amazing as always! We were seated outside under the tent. It was a little noisy from the street and we did have a draft from sitting against the tent. Other than that it was great.

Osteria Romana always has outstanding dishes served by an outstanding staff. We picked a quiet table on a quiet day, so no problems with conversation. The server knew that we were not in a rush to eat or leave, so she worked accordingly. My guest and I spent more than two and a half hours there and it was totally enjoyable, the food, the atmosphere, and the service. I highly recommend Osteria Romana.

What a delightful discovery on a cold, early winter Sunday evening. This freestanding place has a great warm vibe and is one of the best 'Italians' - indeed, restaurants - in the area. There was no defect, whatsoever.

Went here for my 25th birthday brunch. Got there alittle after 11:40, and waited 5 minutes for a waiter to come up. He took our drink order and our waffle/omelette orders. We went and grabbed buffet food which was good. Got back to the table and the waffles/omelette had arrived! The omelette was incorrect. My friend stop a waitress and told her there were mushrooms in her omelette and she is allergic to them. They took it away and made a new one. The omelette they came back was also filled with mushrooms. Very upset about the mistakes. However the mimosas were great. Definitely got our moneys worth of the mimosas!

We were at Osteria Romana for an early lunch. I had requested a quiet table and the corner table was reserved for us. The restaurant was not very busy at that time, so we had an easy and long conversation. The food was excellent, the server very accommodating, since we were in no hurry, and we stayed for three hours. I would highly recommend Osteria Romana for its ambiance, its food and service.

First time here and it won’t be the last. Food was excellent. Veal saltimbocca and swordfish superb. Service was a bit slow but it was extremely busy and our waitress kept us informed. Desserts were excellent. We will be back!

Osteria Romana is consistently an exceptional fine dining experience. The waitstaff are courteous and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing and conducive to conversation. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone. Even the bread that is brought to the table before you have ordered, is delicious, served with garlic cloves in olive oil. Recently, I had swordfish, which was a special menu item- it was superb! I highly recommend this restaurant and have been enjoying their offerings for years.

Real nice spot for a Sunday brunch. If the weather is nice, ask to sit outside. They have an omelette and pancake/waffle/french toast option to start and then you can help yourself to the buffet. Raw bar is excellent plus they have salad, turkey, roast beef, roast lamb & ham. A pasta offering as well as sausage & meatballs. Pair that all with bottomless mimosas & bloody mary's and it really is a good meal at a nice spot. Only drawback is they don't start Sunday brunch till 11am.

Our 1st time here, we had outstanding service and the food was very good. Its very nice inside but is a bit noisy no matter where you sit. The manager was nice enough to move us to a quieter table but it was still loud. I think its too close on a very busy street. They did have a patio outside that looked nice and cozy. We did have a great night and also enjoyed talking with the manager, chef, and staff

Until my last visit, I would have recommended the restaurant but my last visit was very disappointing. I ordered mt steak medium-rear and it came out VERY well-done. Sent it back and when it came back, it was more medium than medium-rear.

Additionally, my $30 steak was chewy and tough. I doubt my family will be visiting anytime soon.

I have been here several times and it is always an incredibly delicious meal! The host is a wonderful young woman- always a smile on Her face. Gian Franco was beyond amazing- he is friendly, engaging and made a good night with great food an extraordinary experience- hang on to him! He makes a lot of the ambiance. LI know Mauricio from the Norwalk restaurant- this continues to amaze! It’s a gem of a restaurant!
