Whether it be fo Osteria Morini pays homage to the casual and rustic cuisine and ambiance of the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy. Osteria Morini is a casual Italian restaurant from Chef Michael White. In Italian, “osteria” means a place where the owner “hosts” guests, and at Osteria Morini, Chef White continues this tradition of hospitality, transforming his first Washington, D.C. restaurant into an authentic, old-world osteria with soulful food from the Emilia-Romagna region of Northern Italy.

    The food was excellent and our server Jamie did a fantastic job! It was unusually loud in the restaurant for a Monday, due to the crowd for Morini Monday.

    Check your final bill carefully! Our itemized bill came back around $125. They brought back a credit card receipt for us to sign that was $159. When I pointed this out to the waiter, he went off and explained that after he brought us our itemized bill, somehow two additional glasses of wine were added to our tab. Although we appreciate the explanation, I don't think we really received an apology--there was no surprise, remorse, or anything that suggested that the restaurant wanted to make amends for the "mistake." (I had supposed that the restaurant would normally lock out the tab once they print the itemized bill and bring it to the table--but that's clearly NOT the case here.) Otherwise, the restaurant is in a great spot, it's beautifully decorated, and the service was fine (until they brought the check). I love when Italian pasta shines and is complimented by the sauce. But here, the pasta sauces overwhelmed the pasta. It was passable--not disturbing in any way, but surely also not memorable. But--really, I am still flumoxed by the bill "mishap"--was it an honest mistake or a scam? I wish that I had confidence that it was just a mistake. But the way that the restaurant responded didn't suggest that they cared.

    We had not been in a while and came for Valentines Day. Oh my gosh it was wonderful! Fixed price, 4-course meal and it was smazing! Lobster ravioli was perhaps the best we have had. Lobster bisque and halibut were also terrific. We pledged to not let as much time to go by before we return.
