Food was excellent and going early ensured that we did not have to deal with a crowd. The service was also excellent. We were very pleased and happy to be dining out and still feeling safe.

The authentic Italian food is fantastic, and is every bit as good as most upscale restaurants in major cities. Muncie is quite lucky to have Osteria32!

If one is in the mood for Italian cuisine & something good, this is it. I have chosen to dine here twice since the “scamdemic,” and I would not hesitate to either recommend or dine at Osteria32, again!

Introduced another couple to Osteria. It was a slam dunk. They will return. Kept it simple: large Carne Supremo and a large Chef’s Favorite. A bottle of the Barolo and life is good. MaKayla (sp?) and Brandan were great as usual.

We have visited Osteria 32 multiple times in the past months and count it out favorite Italian restaurant in town. We love everything from the fresh bread with roasted garlic and olive oil to the Italian wines and evening fresh pasta dishes! I had the lasagna which was loaded with lots of meat in the sauce. It was savory with a slight sweetness. Delicious! This is our go to restaurant in Muncie. High end for a small town!

Fabulous deep dish pizza. We took our daughter there, who lives in Chicago. She said the pizza was better than Chicago. And she has eaten at all the big-name pizza places there!

Excellent service, pizza and wine. Waitress suggested several wines to complement our tastes we sampled 3 and ordered 2 of those recommended. Service was a 6 out of 5

My lasagna was under seasoned and cold in the middle. However the meat sauce around it was quite good. My husbands vegetables were not cooked through and he didn’t like the chicken he got. Our waitress was excellent and very attentive. The wine was great. Not my best dining experience for that kind of money, but I’d be willing to give them another shot.

We've never been disappointed with our experience at Osteria 32. The waitress was so friendly and helpful, the food was superb, and the price is always very impressive. We brought friends and when they received their bill they said, "Hmm, we were expecting this to be a lot more!". We had a lovely time and will return.

It's a little expensive but you get what you pay for. If you enjoy meals with everything cooked and seasoned perfectly, then this is the place to go.

We had our reservation at 5:30pm on a Friday and we were the only ones there. It seemed odd, but ended up being nice for me and my husband. We don’t get any dinners without our 3 year old interrupting or us inhaling our food to get out faster. So it was great to be able to take our time and also have the whole restaurant to ourselves.

We always have a great time at Osteria32. I would day this time, the music was piped in a little too loud and interfered with the intimate setting and conversation. Also , everyone's pizza was perfect except mine and it wasn't hot, nor was the cheese melted in the middle. I sent it back and it came out a bit warmer, but I kept it anyway, not to be a bother. No one wants to be "that guy." Our waiter was terrific and we felt well-attended to.

It has been a while since we have been here. Our food was very good. Our waiter was very good. It took a long time to get our beverages, it seems like you may be a little short staffed. We will return though. I was glad to see that you were busy. The food was very good. They did have to turn people away if they didn't have reservations, even though there were empty tables. I would recommend making reservations.

Great new Italian restaurant that is cozy and relaxing. The only thing that I would change is get rid of the styrofoam containers for left over portions. There has to be a more modern eco-friendly solution.

Our entrees were the evening special--the salmon over a bed of wonderful vegetables. There was a honey sauce on the salmon. The salmon was perfectly done. It was moist and delicious. The fresh fish was a real treat here. I thought I was at Oceanaire in Indi. where they fly the fish in fresh on a daily basis. We started with the Roman salad which had phenomenal artichokes and roasted vegetables with a bed of lettuce. We were celebrating a birthday so we shared a serving of tiramisu. It is amazing that we have such a wonderful restaurant in Muncie. Experiencing the joys of I-69 are not necessary any longer when one wishes a fine meal.

My new favorite restaurant. I love the ambiance, soft music and candlelight. We never feel rushed and we usually linger over some wine. My only complaint is the use of styrofoam for carrying out our left overs. We had left over pizza and it was put in a 3 Styrofoam containers that I felt was excessive. Please just get some card board boxes.

Potentially a good place. However: questionable location, limited menu, uncomfortable seating, and a general lack of ambience cannot be off-set by excellent service ... with food that is good but not great. They can do better ... and, if they want to survive, they need to. Will try again ... hope for some improvement.

We had the salmon special. It was unbelievably good. Artichokes and mushrooms came with the salmon. A very delicate sauce was also included. . We started with a Roman salad that included roasted vegetables that were quite nice. Pistachio gelato was the dessert. Oh My! It is better than the gelato that was available in Florence. Just a little chocolate is included with the nuts to make a perfect dessert. We are so fortunate to have this outstanding restaurant in Muncie.

Each time I go here I am astounded that we have a restaurant this good right here in Muncie. On Friday one of the specials was salmon with artichokes and mushrooms in a very delicate sauce. The appropriate word to describe this was superb. The salmon was light and delicate--perfect might be the appropriate word.This was better than many of the dishes I have had at Oceanaire in Indianapolis where the fish is flown in fresh every day. One of the dessert options was pistachio gelato so that was selected because it is so good and usually disappears very rapidly since it is so popular.
