Delicious pastas and warm service made for a fun evening. Would happily go back. Get the truffled ricotta tortolinni and the whipped parmasean. By far the two best things we had.

We ordered the bruschetta du jour - which was topped with whipped butternut squash - and it was delicious! My husband ordered steak cooked rare. The manager came to the table to say that the steak was too well done to serve so they gave us a complimentary brussels sprouts salad while we waited for the new steak. A very customer-oriented response which was greatly appreciated! The steak and my short rib gnocchi were eventually served and they were delicious. Great restaurant, cozy authentic decor and very personable staff. Highly recommend!

We had introduced this restaurant to some old friends from London when they lived here, and every time they visit they want to meet here. We had yet another outstanding meal here the other night and everything was delicious and the service friendly yet professional. Only disappointment was the house white wine was not available.

Great food and always consistent. Service is non existent. They have incredibly low standards of service for a place like that. I have worked in the industry for many years and it's quite surprising to see a waiter that shows up at a table to give you the menus and then shows up again to give you the check. Nothing else in the middle.

The food was great as always; however, our server was not very attentive. Case in point, my water glass was not refilled once, and I could not get his attention to refill it. Basically, once the food order was placed, we never saw him after he stopped by a minute after the food to arrived to ask what we thought of the food until we asked for the check.

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
