    The lasagna was delicate and delicious. Not a big red brick of cheese and meat. Still remembering how good it was. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, attentive but relaxed. My only quibble is the chairs. They were a bit uncomfortable for a long meal.

    Early supper but temperatures low. Restaurant needs an outside shield from cold and wind. Every time the door opens the freezing cold comes in. Even far away it is a problem. The tables for 2 are too small and constantly balancing table items so that they don’t fall off. Generally not comfortable. Recommend coming with more than 2 to get a decent sized table but will still be cold. Food and service are excellent but prices high for a neighborhood restaurant that has had little investment by owners in the infrastructure.

    Osteria 106 is my favorite UWS restaurant. On a residential block just West of Manhattan Avenue, its a locals spot - lovely Italian food, warm and wonderful staff, good wine list (no full bar). Its a true UWS treasure in every way.

    This was my second time at Osteria, the first being right before they shut down for Covid. So, after almost 2 years, I was very excited to come back! The food was absolutely amazing, and I remembered THAT, which is what brought me back. I only have 2 small complaints, which are minor.... One is that it is smaller than I remembered, so my date and I got placed in the middle of everything, making it less "cozy" and intimate than I'd have liked, and that it is LOUD. (This is partly because we came on a Saturday night during "rush" so every table was filled. I imagine if you go at a less busy time, it would be much more leisurely paced and quieter.) Certainly something to consider if you're on a first time date, or plan to have a conversation that sticks. Anyway - THE FOOD!!!! The appetizer we chose was burrata, which came in a beautiful, squishy little pile, on top of prosciutto, with roasted red pepper and caramelized cloves of garlic. OMG. To die for! I've never had better burrata in my life - so creamy, salty and decadent as it was. My date had the butternut squash ravioli, (which she devoured and really enjoyed), and I had the pistachio-crusted filet of cod, which was perfectly tender and came on top of a delicious pool of rice that they call "forbidden rice," which was somewhat "soupy" but perfect, slightly salty, nutty, and al dente. We both ordered a glass of red wine, which might be a bone of contention, for at $16-$18 per glass, resulted in a very meager pour. (Maybe this is standard, I don't go out much!) Be that as it may, this restaurant should be on your must-go-to list for incredible, authentic, Italian fare. The host was lovely, and the pricing is fair.

    Way overpriced…limited menu…nothing stood out about the flavor. Avoid the appetizers. They were ridiculously expensive for what was included. The prices listed on Open Table are not accurate. Even the little bread bites served in a paper bag were laughable. What are we pigeons?

    The Prosecco was delicious. The Barratta and prosciutto appetizer was so fresh and tasty and big enough to be shared by two people. We ordered different main courses and each dish was tasty. The Cappuccino semifreddo as a desert was divine and a wonderful surprise.

    This is a really nice neighborhood restaurant that you want to see do well. The food is excellent. Just have to take one star off because of two things: 1) the wait staff do make you feel rushed 2)there was a problem with one desert and the server didn't know what to do to resolve the good: chef selection charcuterie plate was excellent. delicious meats and cheeses. fried artichoke served in an incredible cheddar pastry was fantastic. standout entrees were the lamb shank and special ravioli. the not so good: not that impressed with the deserts It's a small place, and we just arrived. Within 30 seconds, a waitress came by to tell us the specials before we had even received a menu. Not a big deal -- we laughed, ordered wine, looked at menus, and then asked our waitress to recite the specials again. We picked two entrees off the specials menu - one was a hit, the other not as much. Wine list is mediocre. We picked a bottle that you can buy for $12 in a store and their markup is 4x. The one minor problem we had was with the special desert cannoli's. They created a unique, non-traditional filling, but it didn't have a proper consistency or flavor for a proper cannoli. We didn't eat it. When we said something to our waitress, there was no apologies or ask if we wanted something else. And the price did make it to the bill, which they later removed when we asked. Overall, great neighborhood place to come to, but I wouldn't go out of my way to return so soon.

    Prices are high here, warranting a better experience. Questions about the menu were not well answered—our waitress knew nothing of Italian food and the noise level was so high that it was impossible to hear her. Soundcheck measured 79 decibels and above. Once we ordered she brought out four half slices of bread with some sort of flavored butter. Before we’d had a chance to have more than one bite, the busboy brought our main courses and attempted to remove the bread and its plates. Obviously food is not made to order. I requested grated parmesan. The waitress brought a small bowl of it and was about to sprinkle it on my pasta. I asked if I could do this myself—seemed logical. We were in, ordered, served and out within 50 minutes. Did they want to get rid of us so badly? The timing of everything was poor, amateurish. We went to Central Park and watched the full moon from the Great Hill.

    We LOVE this neighborhood gem! Quality simple ingredients perfectly prepared and beautifully plated and served with love. These folks get it. In a big way. Elegant rustic interior and super cute outdoor tables. Save room for the tiramisu. They always remember me when I approach the restaurant (and they know my allergies, too, and take that seriously so I may relax and not worry). (Images are from a previous visit, I did not snap images last evening. We are regulars at this restaurant. :))

    Went on a cold rainy Monday night to take out a friend who was hosting my visit to NYC. Had the short ribs special, which was excellent. Ordered a takeout portion of the Arancini, which I told them was for my daughter, who was ill, and they comped that for me. Super nice, considerate service. Am making it my go-to on the UWS

    Food presentation lacked flare. The salmon was flavorless and the lobster ravioli was over cooked. Our bottle of wine was delivered half through eating our beet and goat cheese salad (lacked flare in preparation). Overall, I would spend your money on another Italian restaurant. Prices were high for the quality.
