It is worth noting that the pasta is homemade which is rare to find these days. IMO no good Italian restaurant should make pasta from the box. You can tell the difference and that is where Osteria Morini sets itself apart. All of the food is good, but the apps/salads and the pasta are exceptional. Other entrees are good, but wont necessarily leave you wit the same feeling as the pasta. All desserts are exceptional as well.
I was there on a Monday night, only ones in the restaurant (not a busy night in Bernardsville). Started at 8 PM, by the time we were eating entree's the restaurant was all cleaned up and ready to close, but I get it. Note that this did not hinder service. Great beers, I am sure the wine list is good too.
Its not cheap, but it won't break the bank. The food is priced appropriately for the quality. There are more expensive restaurants in the area with worse quality food.
Ambiance: The bar feels just right, its got that good old European tap, wooden ceilings, open kitchen. Everything looks right. But the music is a bit off. Classic Rock.... odd choice for this restaurant.
Definitely worth coming here a few times to taste a few items. Their pasta's come in half and full sizes, so you can order more to taste.
Good as always. Service was a bit slow especially since it was a weeknight and not very crowded. We will be back. Pastas all yummy and fresh.
It was excellent.
We live in the neighborhood and like this restaurant a lot but it’s a little over priced . Cocktails are ridiculously expensive and portions are relatively small , but the quality of the food is very good . The homemade pastas are really good , even the gluten free😉 we had a nice dinner but the service was very poor and the bill was around $400 for 6 people
Still love this place but wish they would make a few changes
Great food, ambience, sort of an open kitchen concept. The service is good, nothing extraordinary but the food was well presented, tasty and the price was right. I found the price on their wine list expensive for my taste. Paid 16 Dollars for a rather mediocre glass of wine. Other than that I recommend this place for Italian food
best italian restaurant in nj. homemade pasta
wonderful quality of ingredients and preparations.
comfortable hip ambience
Had not been yet, but wanted to give it a try for a casual week night dinner. Food was just OK...and pricey for what it was. I don't think I would go back.
We really loved our dinner here- the food was excellent and our service was outstanding, even on a busy Saturday night. A little pricey but that's normal for the area. Pastas were particularly excellent. Would definitely return!
Great food, terrific service. Innovative menu. Will be back!
My husband and I thought the food was exceptional. Wine by the glass was pricey. Wait staff was very good. Bathrooms could use a cleaning and dusting... Had to add...sorry.Will definitely be back.
