What a discovery! We had a great dinner. It's the perfect neighborhood restaurant; we plan to come back often. And our waitress was wonderful - engaged, friendly, professional. A delight.

This is currently my favorite neighborhood restaurant, but good enough to be a destination restaurant too. The fried artichokes, sugar snap salad, and squash pasta are all superb.

We had been wanting to try this restaurant for some time, and on our first visit our waitress made us feel incredibly unwelcome that I felt strongly enough about the experience to write a review. I let her know we had a reservation and the first thing out of her mouth was a very unfriendly and forcefully unwelcoming demand of “outside or inside.” She seemed to sense our hesitation and frustration at her tone and tried to modulate her demeanor, unsuccessfully in my opinion. Throughout the night she shifted between acting like we were her best friends and people about whom she couldn’t care less, with disconcerting bursts of laughter and a just barely held onto sense of decorum. It made the dining experience incredibly uncomfortable, enough so, that we very likely will not be returning. I will give credit to the food. It was certainly good. The butternut squash ravioli with sage was heavenly. The Trofie with pesto was not heavenly but good nonetheless. The Branzino special was good, but the portion size of the dishes overall for their price left something to be desired. All things considered, we left with appetites and an experience unsatisfied. In a place like New York City, where options abound, it’s important to create a complete dining experience that makes every customer who walks through the doors feel welcome and appreciated. Customer service is as much a commodity as well-prepared food. Unfortunately this dining experience did not provide that.

We have always loved this restaurant, from the time when it was Gastronomia Culinaria (or VV). This time we sat outside, on Saturday night, and it was so loud that it seemed like something out of a Woody Allen movie. Of course we realize that this in no fault of the restaurant, and that they cannot control on-street noise, but the noise level was almost comical. Busses! Ambulances! Drag Cars! Motorcycles! Cars blasting music! Yikes it was nonstop.
We will return to Osteria 106 soon, and are very glad to have it in our neighborhood.

This is a wonderful restaurant. I must suggest people eat inside, as the terminus for two bus lines was right by the dining area, and they were coming and going constantly.The food, service and friendliness were fabulous. The conversation, intermittent at best.

Melissa our host , and i say host because she made us feel welcome. Pasta cooked perfect al dente ( which as a chef is my pet peeve) cannot say enough about how we were made to feel welcomed and not rushed. Perfect experience!!

On several visits here, I've found the food to be excellent. Last night my pasta tubes with seafood was not good. Pasta was too al dente, and I can forgive for that, but sea food was very overcooked. In particular, the shrimp were mushy. On the bright side, the beet salad with goat cheese was very good. The service was very good and my friend liked her risotto. We sat outside, in part because we thought it would be quieter. Wrong, the restaurant is on a street that gets a lot of car and truck traffic, so it's probably more pleasant inside.

What a lovely neighborhood locale, loaded with authentic character, not unlike one of those osterias that you might find off the beaten tourist track in Roma, perhaps in Trastevere. The owners and the hostess are charming and the food is simple and delicious, and moderately priced. There's a romantic ambiance about the entire endeavor (and one of the most immaculate restrooms in the entire city). Brava!
