Had a great meal, service a little slow. Busters are very slow and inexperienced. Noise level is terrible!!! You cannot have a conversation , it’s just too noisy !

Thank goodness there was an attentive waitperson other than the one who was suppose to be serving our table. He took care of refilling our water glasses several times and packaged up our leftovers while our person was more interested in talking to the people at the table next to us. The bus person came to take our salads away when we were not even half finished.
Food was good but I don't understand the bread that was served. With the LeBus bakery only a few miles away you would think it would be possible to serve nice crusty bread.

We came as a family of four with 2 young kids. Our waitress was very patient. Food was excellent. We ordered the octopus appetizer and by far it’s some of the best my wife and I have had. It was perfectly cooked. My wife got a very creamy pesto gnocchi and I got the cioppono. (Use their bread to dip in the sauce!)

The best part of the evening was our server. She was pleasant, energetic and engaged.
The restaurant was very noisy. Even thought we had a reservation it took a long time to get seated and they squeezed us into a way too small table. The food was OK....certainly not so good that it would be worth putting up with the other stuff, but not so bad as to warrant a trashing...in short, OK but nothing remarkable.
Really disappointed. Had never been and was looking for something new and fun. This was not it.

Thank you for dining with us and taking the time to write a review! I'm so happy to hear that our guests love one of my personal favorite dishes. We agree that the pizza is a must-try. There is nothing like a nice bubbly charred crust from a wood-fired pizza oven. Please come back soon and try our new cocktails that will be on the new cocktail menu! The bar is almost finished being installed and will be up and running very soon!

We look forward to the new updated restaurant! We think your space is ideal, love the interior, need to keep it casual quality Italian! Pizza was good - but needed to be a little crispier in the middle! Glad it’s back on the menu though! We loved the artichokes, burrata, salads, calamari - and the bread with pesto!! Can’t wait to come back when the bar is in!! Happy you are changing the name too!

My friend from high school was in from CA and four of us went for a mini “reunion.” We arrived a tad early but we were seated immediately, and they were nice when our fourth came after us. Service was good, as was home-made bread. Two of us shared the spring salad and all four of us had a decent portion. My entree of eggplant parm was so-so. The eggplant parm was good, but the fusilli was not a pasta that I would have paired with it. Like another diner commented, sauce tasted out of a jar, not home made. My friends enjoyed their meals. Dessert just okay. Not 100% sure I’d go back.

Fresh ingredients and house-made prep makes it all exemplary, deserves "best pizza" award easily. Couple all that with warm greetings and attentive staff makes this a favorite go-to Osteria experience. They now have liquor license and a nice selection of wine. Another "best" award is deserving of their in-house made Tiramisu. Large open space with rustic decor.

Food was fresh and delicious. Service was good, but they seemed slightly understaffed. Modern decor is nice, but doesn't feel "cozy" if that's what you're looking for.

Service was very good and the food was tasty. The menu has a good variety and they had good specials listed. The restaurant is quite noisy, however, and earlier in the evening (up to 7:30 PM), there are a number of children in the restaurant too.

One of the chefs\owners is named Alex. He’s very personable, professional, and interactive. He came to our table several times to make sure we were OK and that we were cared for.
The food was superb. I had the linguine Pescatore. Perfection. Nothing but great things to say. I couldn’t go there several times a week (Money) but I would like to.
Can’t wait to go back.

Very solid neighborhood bistro! We shared the burrata and octopus special, which were both very good, then had the whole branzino, which was deboned tableside with a lemon sauce, and the risotto special (butternut squash, broccoli and Italian sausage) which was very good. Wine list is small, but they allow BYOB for a $20 corkage (fair in my opinion). Would definitely recommend and will be back!

Food took over an hour and 15 minutes to come out. Broccoli rabe pasta dish had what looked to be baby spinach leafs substituted for the broccoli rabe and was literally watery. Very bad. My dish was very hot and very cold in some parts. Typical sign of a microwaved dish. Sauce was similar to what you might find from a can. One other dish was good. Went for my daughters birthday and evening was completely ruined. Dinner took so long that there was little time to do anything else besides go home and go to sleep. They also left the door opened probably to make it easier to server the outdoor guests and the temp on the restaurant probably dipped to 65 degrees or so for at least an hour while waiting for our meal.

After a rather long, almost an hour, wait between taking our order and filling it, the meal that arrived was very good. I told our server it was worth the wait. The chef came out to introduce himself and we mentioned the long wait. He said there was a large party (12) that took a lot of his time. We were offered dessert and I asked if the cannoli was made in house and it wasn't, so I opted for the gelato, which was grainy and icy. I may consider a return visit but the wait needs to be shortened. Our server was very understanding and did her best.

We had enjoyed Arde Osteria from a previous visit. I'm not sure if this visit was due to it being on a Sunday or an overall downturn. The service was very slow for a relatively empty restaurant. The food was middle of the road. Our meal was close over 90 minutes which was hard to comprehend as well. We hope the restaurant returns to its earlier form.
