Came here on Saturday afternoon for brunch. They make their pasta in-house. I had the truffled ravioli and it was so delicious! Try their classic Bloody Mary as well.

I loved the whole place. The pasta is amazing, the octupus was on point and our waiter was super friendly, helpful and funny. I enjoyed everything about this place. The restaurant is casual, fun and at the same time you can have a date, family or friends dinner/lunch.

It was our first time at Osteria Morini. The restaurant is very attractive and the staff friendly and professional. The food was delicious if a little over-priced. We enjoyed it very much.

Went for a lunch meeting. The good news is that it was easy to get a res. But knowing Michael White’s amazing legacy, I had high expectations and left disappointed. It was fine for the purposes of the meeting but the food didn’t “wow.” Hostess should have been pleased to welcome us, barely made eye contact or greeted (didn’t even ask if we had a res, which we did of course).

Overall, it was a solid experience. The restaurant has great ambiance and when our server was available, they gave personal and warm service. Unfortunately, our server seemed to be covering close to 10 tables, so it was difficult to get attentive service. The meatballs we're absolutely Devine and melted in your mouth. The taliatelle pasta was a real let down....it was missing that deep flavor you crave in a Bolognese sauce. The creamy pasta with panchetta was much better, but still required salt.

I have had lunch three times at Osteria Morini. The food is always good and there is a good selection of wines in three different sizes for individuals but the service tends be too slow, even when there are few diners. Also the noise level increases as the place crowds up, but there are some peripheral tables that might help avoid the overall high volume. Even so, this is the least noisy restaurant in this part of NOLITA.

Always a treat eating at Osteria Morini! Food is delicious and portions are abundant. The staff is gracious and accommodating and always make you feel welcome. Wish it was a tad quieter so you could hear the person on the other side of the table without screaming, but all in all, a terrific, fun and terrific place to dine!

Very good but unexceptional Italian food. The price of pasta is very reasonable, the price of appetizers and wine is way too high.

Excellent lunch. The prosciutto wrapped quail was fabulous. 2 nice size boneless, crispy pieces. The ony bone was a tiny drumstick. He had 3 very tasty, juicy meatballs. Pasta was gemelli with peas and han and a memorable creamy buttery sauce. It was the kind of food that appears to be simple--but oh so yummy. He had torcia with seafood something. Cleam plates all around.
The only disappointment was a very skimpy and watery Tanqueray martini.
We hadn't been there for a while--but we will be back soon!

Chef Michael White's forte is his ambrosial pastas -- but in fact everything I've tasted in many visits to Osteria Morini has been at a minimum very good and often ravishing. This is one of my wife's and my favorite NYC trattorias.

The food was great but mostly I noticed the exceptional service. The staff was attentive all throughout the dinner, even though there were a couple of glitches that occurred. I called in advance to make sure there would be a “Happy Birthday” message written on the dessert.... never happened. The initial “welcome” left me feeling a little uneasy when my friend and I were told we would be seated exactly at the time of our reservation, not sooner. It felt odd since the dining room was almost empty; there was no one waiting to be seated or eating. Nonetheless the food was great. I’d give it an 8 out of 10.
