The food was very authentic Emilia Romana. The tortellini in brodo and the stuffed pasta with truffle were standouts. Would go again, a little pricey, so definitely more of a special occassion. For 3 people with wine, apps, and shared dessert we spent around $300. It was all delicious so it was worth the spend. The restaurant was also rather noisy, mostly because of the way its laid out. Wine selection for single glasses could be more varied. No Suave or Vermentino at an authentic Italian place, c’mon!?

I made the mistake of going here for dinner with people to whom I wanted to talk. There’s no way to do that in the din here. The food is wonderful, especially the pastas. But I’d stick to lunch here, no dinner.

We had a wonderful experience at Osteria Morini as our pre theatre dinner. I'm still dreaming about the Parmigiano Gelato days later. We had multiple courses and were incredibly happy with each one. Our waitress was the perfect sweet spot of friendly/helpful/attentive while also giving us the pacing and spacing we were hoping for. I would very happily come back here

Food was phenomenal. Went there for our 24th wedding anniversary which was acknowledged at check in, then they sat someone else at our table as we got lost in the sauce. When we were seated, they put us next to their service buffet where they keep all the utensils, napkins, water ect. so that was a drag. The restaurant is very noisy so it was difficult to have a conversation. The service started off well, then gradually declined throughout the night. They did buy us a glass of sparkling wine for the occasion which was nice of them but an overall mediocre night. I believe they are better than that but the powers to be were trying to derail our celebration and we didn't let that happen so kudos to us! The food was really good so it wasn't a bad experience, it just could have been a lot better.

Their pastas are delicious. It doesn’t matter which one you get because they are all good. The only thing I did not like was the free bread. It was stale and we had no olive oil to dip it in.

The food was very good but service was slow. I believe the server forgot to put in our order and one if our drinks so we had to follow up with another server after waiting for a long time. No apologies from our server or acknowledgement that our food and drinks were delayed.

This is the second time I've been to Osteria Morini and I would definitely go back! The first time, I had a voucher which was a great deal. This time, I had 30% off from Blackboard Eats. I would also go to this place if I didn't have a special deal, but so far I haven't had to.

This place is just amazing! Ordered the meatballs/ duck live mousse/ and bruschetta to start and they didn’t disappoint. The Cappelletti (truffle ricotta filled pasta with one heck of a brown butter sauce) is a must! I’m always a fan of Lambrusco and they have a flight of 3 which pairs pretty perfectly with everything on their menu. Our server wasn’t around much, pretty sure he got slammed with a bunch of large parties all at once, but we were still very well taken care of by the rest of the staff! This is my GO-TO Italian spot and it should probably be yours too!

Phenominal! A friend and I came for my birthday and I've been raving about it for days. We split the Garganelli pasta as an app and it was superb. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. I had the veal (Petroniana) for dinner and it was absolutely delicious. This dish was my main reason for choosing this place and it did not disappoint! I finished every last morsel. My friend had the Porchetta and was a bit disappointed. She said it was a little dry and bland.
We were too full for dessert but the waiter brought over 2 scoops of gelato for my birthday, which was super sweet.
Overall, we loved it and I can't wait to go back.

My mom and I were visiting NYC for a quick 2 night get-a-way from Buffalo, NY. We try to visit NYC once a year and this trip had no plans, and just wanted to explore and not be on a schedule. This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend who had visited a few months prior. It wasn't near our hotel but we wanted to go none the less. The atmosphere, food and service was phenomenal. We had reservations to sit at a table, but decided to sit at the bar because we were able to sit right in the corner spot. Our bartender was AMAZING. We could have stayed and talked to her all night. The hostesses were so kind and excited to accommodate wherever we wanted to sit.
The food we ordered was absolutely excellent. I have already told 4 other people who plan on traveling to NYC that they have to make a stop. I can't wait to return! Thank you for all of those who work so hard to make experiences like ours possible.
