Felt like the server was unhappy with us not choosing the prix fixe. Otherwise the experience was great, the food was amazing and they paid attention to the special notes that I made when I reserved.

We were there for Valentine's Day and had a wonderful meal and nice romantic table! We were in a corner by several candles so it was a very nice setting away from all the hustle and bustle of the restaurant given the holiday. Food was wonderful, better than what we've had before! We frequent this restaurant especially for special occasions and get the "dinner party" package all the time. This is probably the best meal we had at the restaurant! They normally do a great job and its always a great value but 2/14 was exceptional. However, I just loved my scallops and gnocchi on 2/14! Hats off to the Chef for such a wonderful job given the volume they were getting that night for V-day! I loved the nice touch of the single rose that they gave to all the ladies coming in that night - thank you! We look forward to having many more meals here in the future!

Had a wonderful time at this restaurant. Food was very good, setting is rustic chic. Wine is strictly Italian but they will let you bring your own for a corkage fee of $20--as long as the wine you bring is not on their menu.

Roasted garlic with balsamic vinegar on fresh bread was a hit. I'd go back just for that.

Came for brunch. AWESOME cocktails. I mean, really outstanding. Great pizza, very nice service. The only possible negative is that the menu is fairly limited for brunch, but we all found something we really liked. I definitely recommend.

We enjoyed the risotto special and the ricotta cavatelli-both were awesome. The wine list was great and service excellent.

We consider Osteria via Stato a neighborhood go-to. We brought new friends there and we had the Restaurant Week menu. Delicious, generous, and well served. Eaten here many times and have never had a miss.

We enjoyed the Restaurant Week menu during our visit. Short ribs, trout and the vegetarian option were ordered and all were found to be quite good. Each dish contained vegetables along with the entree, which was nice. We also ordered a side of a Brussels sprouts that were nicely browned. There was delicious focaccia in oil, balsamic and softened garlic, as well as olives for the table. We also ordered wine, a Gavi, I believe, that was good enough to order a second bottle. We started with salads and a really good asparagus soup. Dishes arrived a bit too quickly, and we asked that they be better paced and the kitchen/servers complied. I’ve visited this restaurant several times and have found it to be consistently good.

We went to celebrate a birthday but choose Osteria because we love it. We had an amazing experience. The food was delicious and the service was great. They split all the meals in that kitchen that we wanted to actually split. All the food tasted delicious and I would recommend anyone to go here for dinner, whether a casual meal or a special occasion!

The meal started off well even though the waiter informed us that several favorites were recently removed from the menu (beet salad, lentils, Parmesan onion). We ordered our meal no problem and the waiter was great. When the food arrived, it took him a few minutes to come over and check on us. When he finally did, we informed him that our sides (Calabrian potatoes - two orders) were missing. After that, he literally never came back. We were well done with our meal when he showed back up. It was a disgrace. He never came back to see if our potatoes made it, which one order finally did when we were near done with dinner, but not the second. When he ghosted us, we went to tell the manager and his reaction was even worse! He looked at my husband, read off my phone number and said, "Is that your number? I'll call you early next week to discuss this once the craziness of the weekend dies down." The restaurant wasn't even full! It wasn't crazy inside! It's amazing how rude this manager was. LEYE has always prided themselves on great service, but this was the exact opposite. We were such an inconvenience for him. And the manager never came over to see how our dinner was after that either. He also ghosted us. I didn't think it was that big of a deal, but their reaction, or maybe lack of, was beyond insulting.
