We had friends visiting from out of town and took them to dinner at Osteria 106. It is cozy and welcoming, the kind of place you can absolutely imagine sharing a few bottles of wine and catching up. We ordered drinks and wine 15 minutes before ordering our meal. The waitress approached us, methodically, every 2-3 minutes to check in — super pestering. Not 7 minutes after we ordered, our entrees arrived — before the appetizers. We explained the hiccup, sent the food back and appetizers were served not long after. Following that, dinner arrived and I’m pretty sure my bronzino sat under a heat lamp, developing a tough fleshy layer. It seemed unfair that we should pay for the kitchen’s lapse by eating food that was held over due to their mistake.

I really want to like this place. Great menu, nice wine list. But they’ve got to let customers take the time to enjoy the meal. All in all you feel like an annoyance because they are so actively pushing you to eat dinner.

The food is pretty good. The staff is very nice. However we felt rushed through our meal. I’ll definitely go back & insist that we are served in a more leisurely manner next time.

I've eaten there twice and both meals were delicious. The service is friendly, and they're attentive but not intrusive.

Wonderful experience! Charming hostess Melisa made us feel at home. She even remembered us from a year ago! Had forgotten how good it was “Uptown” (as we live on west 94th🤪). Food and service excellent. Will be back soon.

My new favorite go-to place. Thrilled to find it. Intimate, warm, inviting. Amazing food and equally amazing service. After a harried day at work, it was lovely to sit and catch up with a friend over this amazing food and beautiful restaurant.

Amazing food, ambiance, and location. I wish the calamari was a little bit more though. You didn't get much for $17. Other than that, we had a great experience. The staff was friendly and attentive plus the food was delicious!

Solid, unfussy neighborhood Italian eatery with a thoughtful, reasonably priced wine list. The small, urban-rustic space is inviting but verges on loud when full. On our recent visit the service was attentive and efficient.

Seated exactly on time. We had a 6:30 reservation and while the place was half full when we arrived it was packed a mere 15 minutes later. Server was very good and greeting was warm. Service was VERY rushed however and I strongly felt they had pressure to turn the table rapidly. We were through in 1 hour flat and gone. Antipasto was good but nothing special (burrata, prosciutto, arugula) and one could get the same anywhere. Pasta was delicious. My steak and husband's fish were good but nothing great and I felt the steak was not high quality (sirloin?). I had higher expectations given the glowing reviews.

Every time I have gone here I have my mind set on a particular menu item, only to be tempted away by one of their specials. I have never regretted that choice. The staff is lovely and the vibe is lively but not too noisy.

This was our second brunch at Osteria 106, a great neighborhood place. Reasonable prices for brunch, and very good pasta carbonara! We also tried a pitcher of Rossinis, a nice alternative to the usual Bellinis and Mimosas. We had a last minute addition, 7 people instead of 6, but they seemed happy to accommodate us.

This is the second time I've eaten at Osteria 106. One of our party has been there multiple times. We will all be back. The people are extremely pleasant. All our choices were excellent (octopus, meat balls, cheese cake) except for the veal piccata, which was a bit lacking. Very nice atmosphere.

Osteria 106 serves real Italian food. Fresh, high-quality ingredients--simply prepared to bring out their natural flavors. Real Italian food is not fussy or elaborate. Example: Pappardelle with white truffles. Al dente pappardelle boiled and then transferred to a saucepan with a butter and parmigiana reggiano sauce. Swirl the pasta in the saucepan, put it on the plate, and shave the white truffle over it. Un piatto favoloso! No need to put more cheese on it, just eat it. Any, this charming little spot with rustic decor has great atmosphere, wonderful and personable service, a good wine list, and of course, the aforementioned great food.

My favorite place to try everything on the menu - so far have had pasta with sausage, cod with spinach and roasted potatoes, white truffle pasta, mint snap pea salad, delicious wines, and desserts- service is beyond even Danny Meyer restaurants and has a very homey feel and decor.

Beautiful and cozy spot with a hip vibe. Gorgeous exposed brick decor - very earthy and welcoming. The menu is wonderful and it made it hard to choose what to order - we wanted it all! The Artichoke was divine and the Pea, mint, salad were outstanding. The salad was bursting with flavors - pasta was delicious as were the other mains.
Definitely a place to repeat. Service so kind and informative and great help with our choices. Wine was also reasonable and delicious. Of course the desserts were just as special - everything was great

Lovely neighborhood gem! True Italian experience in an inviting atmosphere with personable and knowledgable staff. The 'fatto in casa' ravioli di zucca was delicious. My beau's cavatelli alla salsiccia disappeared from his plate. Save room for the tiramisu (order it even if you don't have room ... you can do it!).

Hidden gem on the upper west side! Great italian food for reasonable places in a cute and cozy space, with lots of warm lighting and brick. Great for dates. Food is a bit salty.

I've eaten here five times now - the food is always terrific, and the staff are very friendly, very very professional. Good neighborhood crowd - a hidden gem. Recently ahd both the lamb shank (best I've had in NYC) and Fettucine in Lobster Bisque sauce with King Crab and scallops. Wow.

This is a lovely, cozy little restaurant. The food is very good, though some portions small for the price. The artichoke was outstanding. The beet salad, merely OK. The pasta dishes were all very good. The wait staff was very good, except they began clearing the table before everyone finished.
