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.

Amazing Italian experience. Dark, cozy quant atmosphere. Fine innovative dining but not too formal. Top notch service. This is a win on the upper west side. Have been 3 times; never disappoints.

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.

Love this local restaurant. Have never had a bad dish, the pastas are super, but the snow pea salad is the real standout. Well curated, reasonably priced wine list and warm, efficient service.

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.

I have been here on multiple occasions and the service continues to be exemplary beyond compare. Knowing that one has to reserve a time frame makes it that much special so as not to eclipse a gathering of friends when you have to try doing a walk in off the street with a luck of the draw for seating. It most certainly is my go to spot for brunch or dinner with friends.

We really enjoyed dining at this restaurant. The food was fabulous! My daughter and I shared the tuna tartar appetizer and the tortellini dish. It was plenty of food for us! I personally thought the music was a little too loud.. i felt it was hard to hear. I would have preferred something a little quieter but other folks didn’t seem bothered by it.
We will definitely return...as the food and service were both excellent!

A place with real Italian feel. An interesting menu with decent vegetarian choices. A nice wine list. Beware that it gets noisier as it gets full as the evening develops.

One of my favorite places in the area. The food is Great! the wine list is appropriately sized with very good options. I usually go for the specials because they are always creative. However, the main menu is balanced and SO worth it. Make a reservation, it helps.

Nice quaint authentic Italian restaurant located in Harlem. We were greeted at the door and quickly seated. Our waiter showed up with a glass bottle of water and bread with ricotta cheese in olive oil with roasted red peppers as our dipping sauce. That didn't last long. Next was our bruschetta that had prosciutto on one, figs ricotta and honey on another and tomatoes on the third one. I had the chicken breast with arugula, red onion, ricotta and cherry tomatoes. It was a tenderized breast that was about 10" round. My wife had tortellini patoscani. All of the food was authentic Italian, cooked and seasoned nicely, and the portions were perfect size. As an added bonus the bill was very reasonable for the food and drinks that we had. i would love to go back next time e visit the Upper West Side.
