Nice place, food is high quality, service is really good. Nice ambiance.
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.
The food and service were outstanding! Can’t wait to go back!!!
Menu creative. Atmosphere fun. Service outstanding. Location and Vibe cool. What more could you want?
Server (Angel) was terrific!
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.
Exceptional food - great view and ambiance- gourmet Italian- I’ll be back!
Excellent food and service. Can't wait to go back!
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.
My second time there and the food was just as exceptional as the first. Will definitely come again and recommend to friends and family. Good for any occasion.
Met my college aged daughter there for a “daddy/daughter dinner”. I couldn’t have been happier.
The bar staff was great and our waitress gave us exceptional service even though we weren’t in a hurry to order.
Great place with excellent menu and food choices. Also has an amazing location.
The food is always delicious and the staff welcoming. Jamie is terrific!
Every single experience with Osteria Morini has been an absolute pleasure. From date night to birthdays this restaurant shines everytime.
Most amazing Italian I’ve had since I moved to DC. The wait staff was incredibly friendly and informative. He took the time to go through all gluten free options with me (I have celiac). Incredible experience overall!
Everything was perfect
Good service and great food! Comfortable choice for a first date that was wonderful. Will be going back.
An enjoyable dinner. Jamie always provides excellent service.
Food and service amazing as always. Wish it wasn’t quite so pricy, but it’s worth it.
Outstanding Northern Italian food, wine and service! Just visited Bologna and Venice Italy and it took me back there! I’ll be back when in the area again!
Dinner plates are perfectly sized: not too much, not too small. Our waitress was quite knowledgeable about the menu...all of our questions were answered on the spot.
Full menu wasn’t available, but brunch was ok. Will have to come back later to try their full menu. Today was a brunch. Food was good. Not excellent.
Waiter was amazing- food was superb
Service fantastic, appetizer outstanding. Main entree’s average, not great. Both pastas and fish. Not worth the money or hype. Too bad was looking forward to it.
The food was delicious and the service excellent. We were seated prior to our scheduled reservation. Overall, the presentation was outstanding; the ambiance enchanting and the wine topnotch.
Service was responsive and perfect. A mix up in a dining companion’s order was handled promptly and appropriately. Food was very good and offered sufficient variety for four guests with diverse palettes. Will definitely return.
Excelente ambiente, deliciosa comida, muy buena carta de vinos
Great dinner for a birthday! Felt very special! Bartender provider excellent service!
Outstanding Italian food with a view of the Anacostia River. Enjoyed the creamy burrata, Arctic char on a bed of black lentils and a trio of gelatos.
We had a leisurely 3hr Saturday brunch with friends at Osteria Morini. The food and service was amazing, as always. We were left alone to enjoy our catch up without interruption, but our server was always on hand when we needed something. This restaurant remains a favorite for our group.
Always a great time. First time for lunch and the deal couldn’t get better than $15 for exceptional pasta and a glass of wine. My friend is now a fan.
I love Osteria Morini's pasta! They have an incredible wait staff and I love the dining ambiance. I can come here dressed up or dressed down and still feel comfortable.
Excellent service and great location. I like the handmade pastas on the menu with all of the interesting combinations. Solid food however, there were some missed opportunities. I wanted a little more showing off by the chef and a more delicious wine selection.
Been many time, the food and service was outstanding!
Great service and great food. We’ll be back!
Food was great - my husband normally is not a big fan of Italian but he loved it too! Service was flawless. Ambience was good but little too noisy, would’ve been nice if we could hear some background music. Want to try brunch sometime soon.
Enjoyable environment. Great waiter. Delicious food.
Enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. Menu choices were excellent and the food very good. The service was exceptional
