The food was not delicious. My pasta and shrimp dish was not tasty. My husband's dish was not good and he returned it and got something else. Food not up to par.

Always a sure bet. The food is 1st rate and always a great value. The Prix Fixe is great. Variety and includes appetizer or salad or soup, main dish and coffee or tea with a choice of two desserts. And the Sunday buffet brunch is the best deal around. Nice friendly staff. True Italian food.

It’s not everyday you go out to dinner listen to some music, and get a surprise performance from Jose Feliciano! Great evening. Pasta is always delicious. I may pass on the tuna next time.

It was our 19th Anniversary and we were greeted with 2 glasses of Prosecco. It was a lovely surprise. Our servers were there when we needed them and stayed away so we could talk and have our evening together. The food was outstanding, what more can I say.

We returned to this restaurant after several years and found they had packed in extra tables. We're used to that in the city but not in the suburbs. Too bad. Everything else was excellent.

Prix fix menu is a great value and the options make it difficult to choose. I have been going to Osteria for a few years now and am never disappointed. An Italian restaurant is only as good as its red sauce and theirs is just like my grandmothers.

The special Italian appetizer that I had, Vongole Oregananta (Baked Clams) was one of the best that I have tasted. The Pappardelle Bolognese is a very substantial and delicious dish. This dish was very close to what I had enjoyed in Milan, Italy. I have not been to this restaurant in a long time, but will return shortly. In addition my wife an I, along with other customers, were entertained by an individual who sang Italian opera songs. She walked through the restaurant as she sang and greeted all of the customers.

Osteria Romana never fails to please. It is consistently excellent! The food is delicious and portions are plentiful (actually portions could be smaller). Service is attentive in spite of the restaurant almost always being busy. There is obviously good reason that it is! You won’t be disappointed!
