The cocktail and bread with roasted garlic was amazing. The pasta was mediocre, shouldn't have set expectations so high. Nice location and decor.

Rosh Hashanah—second night. The meal was decent! The pizza, however, stole the show...the mushroom and vidalia onion was TO DIE FOR...as was the burrata salad with amazing heirloom tomatoes.
Our Server was fantastic! She was attentive, funny, and knowledgeable, which made our experience so much more pleasant. Well done; we’ll be back!!

Excellent service! The waitress was so helpful and accommodating (I assume the kitchen was very flexible as well) they were able to make few combinations for us that weren’t listed on the menu at the time.

service is poor because they assign many table to one waitress only. The food quality was variable, pasta was good but Risotto with bacon was a big joke.
the pizza was hard and tough to eat.
then the bill was exuberant in relation to to the poor service and bad food

The food was light and delicious we shared the roasted garlic bread which was lite and airy with a wonderful buttery taste. We ordered the greek chicken salad that was awesome, a meal in itself. The shrimp, spinach and angel hair pasta was lite with a nice kick .

Quality food but a bit pricy. Dressing on chopped salad was a bit sweet but still delicious. Pizza resembled frozen pizza with crispy thin crust and sauce, but strangely made in-house. Specially drinks were really yummy.

We waited almost 30 minutes past our reservation time. We ordered a pizza and two cocktails; cocktails were good, but the pizza was just bad. I’ve had bar pizzas, even frozen pizzas, that were better than what we had...

Great and attentive staff. Was excited to try it since I’ve walked past it a million times, but had never been, but food was disappointing. So many other options that are much better.

Their menu options were limited , however I'll excuse this because the revised menu is likely due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. However our entrees were just mediocre, and lacked flavor. The service and ambiance was great!

This was the ideal "wine on the patio" location for my anniversary last night. Tuesdays are half price bottles of wine, and the wine recommendation was perfect! Our food came out quickly and was all delicious. You absolutely must try the ciabatta and roasted garlic appetizer. We also got meatballs and calamari, both were excellent. We will definitely be back soon!

Osteria continues to be a favorite. The outdoor seating remains comfortable and is away from the street and shielded from the sidewalk.

The "virus menu" has enough choices to suit anyone's taste for Italian food.
