One of the best things about visiting this restaurant for dinner is that you can park your car on the street after 6pm. The place has a nice bar and it might be nice for a quick bite if you are in the area. The servers were nice but slow in taking and delivering drink orders and the bread needed to be requested. My companion and I shared a terrific salad which was very crisp lettuce with Parmesan and a delicious dressing. I thought the pastas were just OK, smallish and overpriced. I think $114 is a little steep for one shared salad, two pastas and 2 proseccos. All in all, it was a fine dinner but I wouldn't run back.

I've always been a fan of Osteria Morini. I have taken and recommended it to my relatives and friends from Rome and Venezia often and they enjoyed it very much. This last time however I noticed that the menu has shrunk and there are very few alternatives especially if you don't eat pork or shellfish. I will definitely give it another try and in the next few weeks. I let my very nice waitress know about it.

Food amazing! Service was slow. Waiter served other tables before us. They did apologize at the end (maybe manager noticed?) Would definitely go again!!!

Osteria Morini has always been one of my favorite spots in the city. Good food and wine, impeccable service, for special get-togethers, casual dates and family dinners. Many memories here and I hope they stay as one of the gems in this great city!

We have been eating here for a number of years now...Michael White's wonderful pasta still ROCKS! In fact, the whole team and environment are great...all servers are top-notch, the vibe is kinetic and chill at the same time, the beverages are reasonable and wonderful, and the food is extremely tasty. The manage, Phillip, is a superstar...say 'hello' to him, and he might do something really nice for you. Enjoy...saluti!

We've been to Italy 8x and always complain about the imitation of USA making Italian food but this was 'spot on'. Not overloaded in sauce, fabulous pasta, delicious how the grill Italian bread. The next day we were doing tourist stuff, sat next to New Yorker lady next to us and in conversation spoke about this restaurant and she totally agreed the best! Quaint, wonderful and when we come back, we will be there again! Ciao Bella!

One of chef Michael White's best efforts. It's not pretentious like his Marea and Ai Fiori, and it's more accomplished than his Ristorante Morini uptown. The Italian food is excellent. Osteria Morini, in my opinion, is among the top trattorias in town.

Sunday brunch for my mom's birthday after a spa treatment at Bliss. Mimosas and bloody mary's were amazing. Mezzaluna and mushroom ragu pasta dishes were outstanding (although a bit salty for me) and the juicy burger was cooked to perfection. Totally different vibe from the dinner scene - still great food and service.

The pasta is simply wonderful and is reminiscent of trattorie in Emilia Romagna. Appetizers, bread, dessert were all really really good. The wine list had some true gems, for example a red wine from Liguria that was delicious and one I have never seen in the USA! The focaccia was excellent and cocktails are relatively reasonable in price. It was our second visit and won't be the last.

Osteria Morini is a gem in NYC. Its cuisine is prepared with great care. Perfect every time. The staff are more than accommodating. They give everyone that 5 star attention. It feels like Sunday dinner at Nonna's .If you have not tried you are missing something special.

We've been to Osteria Morini a number of times and we loved it....until this last time. Our favorite duck liver mousse was moved from the charcuterie section into an appetizer section. When asked if we can have it as part of the charcuterie, the answer was no. It comes on a piece of toast now. When asked if we can have it without the toast, the answer was no. This is how it comes now. Period. No discussion. The pasta we ordered was very mediocre - Fusili with pork short ribs. Scallops were very good. Dessert Bodino nice but the selection of desserts used to be much better. Overall, 3 out of 5. Will not be returning anytime soon. Disappointed.

We love Osteria Morini. We went to enjoy their $12 pastas for an early Valentine's Day celebration. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. We didn't love dessert, but probably should have just used the additional tummy space for more of the mind blowing pasta. Absolutely incredible overall.
