We love lively places however there is not much in the way of acoustics in this restaurant to help keep the noise level acceptable. Having said that, the interior workmanship and design is absolutely beautiful. It was so loud I could not hear the person sitting right next to me, never mind across the table.
The menu is very limited with no chicken or steak option. So we went with the smash burger which is not only listed on the menu but pictured. When we got our burgers neither of them were "smashed". This was disappointing, it was tasty but misrepresented.
We would have ordered the single, as the size of a double non-smashed burger was ridiculous. I used to love Osa, can't say I will be returning.

First time at Osa. We LOVED the experience. Kevin, owner, was tending bar... He made a PERFECT Old Fashion! Started with baked olives & grilled octopus. Finished with anchovy garlic pasta, very tasty but a bit too al dente. Topped it off with olive oil cake with lemon curd. I would def return

Osa is by far our favorite restaurant in the area. Every course is special and artfully crafted for an incredible culinary experience. We ordered six plates between the two of us and tried everything on the menu. I always try to order something new and am always delighted! The service is amazing! We can’t wait to go back soon.

Upscale casual atmosphere. Comfortable, minimalist decor. The four of us had salads, burger, spaghetti, meatloaf and the halibut and everyone thought their dish was excellent. Noise was not an issue and we were able to converse in normal tones. The only negative was they were out of tea! We would definitely return.

We went at a quiet time for an early dinner. The service was fantastic and friendly. We tried a salad, the bread (so yummy), halibut, spaghetti & single smash burger. Everything was delicious and beautiful . The spaghetti is a fresh and different dish, bright and vibrant in flavor. The smash burger was delicious and the bun was fresh and light. The location has decent parking options during off times. The restaurant is small but cozy enough. Certainly recommend.

Met friends for dinner, the restaurant was comfortable/clean and had a pleasant atmosphere. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. The star of the meal was the Octopus small plate, the Angolotti were a close second. The Octopus was tender and balanced in flavor against the plating (having enjoyed octopus all around the world this was the best), the angolotti were cooked perfectly silky smooth and positively delectable! Additionally, we all enjoyed the cocktails.

We came here to meet my brother for dinner who goes to UCONN... so glad we ate here! While the menu options are limited, the quality of the food definitely makes up for it. My dad and I ordered the burgers (pink), we tried the bread (amazing!), the octopus and the chicken cacciatore pasta, both delicious. Our drinks were great too. Tables were distanced and it was overall a great atmosphere!

Went for a Valentines Day weekend, and it was an absolute stunner. Dinner was incredible and the drinks were perfect. Don’t be shy looking at the bourbon selection, you can’t be disappointed. The food itself was so incredible. To the point we forgot to take a picture of our main course because we were too busy enjoying it. If you’re going to visit one place on Main Street in Middletown please make this your spot. You won’t regret it!

Every once in a while you come across a restaurant that is so exceptional you find yourself looking for items on the menu that would normally be outside of your comfort zone. Osa is one of those restaurants. What ever I order I’m confident that it is going to be something spectacular.
