Osteria Morini, first introduced in 2010 to New York’s Soho neighborhood, was conceived from Chef Michael White’s dream to bring the same soulful cuisine and convivial spirit of Italy’s Emilia-Romagna region to the United States. After making our original home in Soho, in downtown Manhattan we thought it was time to share the love with the Garden State. Chef Michael White and the Altamarea Group have always made a commitment to bring top quality food from New York to New Jersey. That commitment has been reaffirmed by bringing the highly acclaimed Soho restaurant, Osteria Morini, to Bernardsville, New Jersey.

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!

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.

Great Food as always. Just horrible service as always. Drinks from bar take forever to get to table. The waitstaff is clueless about service. Plates and glasses literally dropped on the table in a haphazard fashion.

The kitchen was very slow. A long wait between appetizers and the main course. But the food is delicious. What can you do.

Had a reservation for 8pm for 8 people. Didn’t have the table ready and then they tried to seat us at a table meant for 4 with expandle pop up sections which only expands to a table for 6. You would think for a reservation for 8 they would have better prepared themselves. Obviously not.

We celebrated Christmas Eve there. The service was very slow and in-attentive.
It was a fix price menu and we felt it was way too pricey for what it was.
There were a few people roaming around the room all the time, which we assumed were management, but we couldn’t figure out why it took so many of them to do nothing for Service .

Osteria Morini is always great! It is perfect for date night and the atmosphere is cozy, the food is amazing and Veronica provides the best service. This is our favorite local restaurant.

Another winner from Chef Micheal White. Casual but cozy setting. Gluten free pasta is made in house and was delicious. Pastas are available in full and half orders. Good wine by the glass selections. We enjoyed the chocolate flourless cake - if you are GF - ask them to leave out the cookie crumbs and the affogato.

We will definitely go back the next time we're in the area.

Wrong order was placed and with the wait for right order, we didn’t eat at the same time. Food is usually very good but the veal for both meals was very dry. Restaurant was not busy, so it was surprising that the service and food were so disappointing
