    Lovely. Such a wonderful waiter, staff, and manager. A bit pricey but moderate for this area and upscale experience.

    They tried to charge us U$ 175.00 dollar for a insalate la baia (the normal price is U$ 23.00). Customers, pls check the bill before paying… It’s too noisy!!We were there between 6 to 8 p.m. Terrible

    Great ambience, and great food at a decent value. The waiter came over right after we arrived to take our order, and we indicated we needed a few minutes to look over the menu. From that point on it was difficult to get his attention despite the fact the restaurant was maybe only 20% full.

    A nice meal, but a bit overpriced for what it was - food and service were fine but $40 for a small piece of salmon was a bit much .

    Really enjoyed our experience. Celebrated our anniversary, which I indicated on the reservation. We were comped a delicious dessert. Not expected in Manhattan on a Saturday night at all. My wife loved her wine and I enjoyed the limoncello daiquiri but it wasn’t that big. Pizzas were good but not out of this world. Service was attentive and passionate.

    Food was delicious but $105 piece of Dover sole ??(however, they did tell us how much it would be when we ordered it). Service started out great but then they never brought my husband’s drink after asking a few times and we had a hard time getting the waiter’s attention.

    Great food, great service. Not overly big nor is it loud, which is important to me, as I wear hearing aids and a lot of noise makes it impossible to hear. Will definitely visit again the next time I’m in the theater district!

    Very welcoming. Wait service was attentive and helpful. My companion’s meal (grilled octopus and salmon) was better than mine. My Skate not very good (fried with a crust) accompanied by heavily over salted overcooked roast potatoes. Blueberries in dessert had absolutely no flavor. Nevertheless I’d return and order more carefully.

    Food was really mediocre for this level of price and restaurant. Pizza looked and tasted like frozen food you’d get from a store. Service was also very bad, waiter took away the olive oil while we still had bread on the table, server treated us very differently from table next to us.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at Osteria. We went to celebrate my husbands birthday and nothing disappointed. The cocktails were delicious as were the appetizers and entrees. We had the beef carpaccio, caesar salad, duck, and the skate. We finished with the panna cotta and left very happy.
