    Good service with good food and attentive staff. Music was too loud for a small place that is inherently noisy. That said, we would certainly go back!

    Great for casual or date night. Small menu but everything was delicious- had the shrimp and polenta and the streak frites dinner as well as the hummus appetizer. Attentive servers. The decor inside is very beautiful and tasteful.

    Osteria Nandi gets 10 out of 10 on all dimensions. Food was excellent. Grilled octopus appetizer was cooked perfectly. Served with delicious orzo. Large plate of pan seared Bronzino was again outstanding. Seared crispy and served on a lovely and healthy bed of sautéed spinach. Outside and inside seating. Inside the ambiance was serene and the light jazz delightful. Service was attentive. Full bottle of water on table.

    The restaurant has a very pleasant decor. I think that the atmosphere would be improved if they lowered the recorded music. I started off with the onion soup which I sent back because the broth did not have an onion flavor to it. The guy sitting at the next table said he loved the soup. I ordered the seafood bisque in place of the onion soup and enjoyed that, it had some pieces of seafood in it, enhancing the soup. The pan seared branzino was a small piece, perhaps pan seared a little too long and was dry. They add a 3.99% charge if you use a credit card.

    Lovely and attentive waitstaff. Some of the dishes we got were kind of bland, some tasted fine but not particularly special. The piece of grilled salmon was so small and $29, and the vegan bowl was just rice with cauliflower and Brussels sprouts and $24. Way overpriced for what we got.

    They were sold out of all the items we wanted for dinner and we were there at 7:30pm. Also, later in the evening I got sick in the middle of the night which I think was from the muscles we ordered. They were also rushing us to order which made my group feel uncomfortable. Overall, overpriced for not great food- it gets you sick!!

    The mussels were not cleaned well (grainy, maybe sand) and they smelled off. But I didn’t get sick. Fries were great. Fish tacos great. Service best I’ve ever had

    The food was excellent. Started with a really good version of garlic shrimp enhanced with roasted peppers. My wife had the Frenchie salad with the salmon as an option, the generous portion of fish was moist and tasty. I went with the mussels with fries. The moules were plump and juicy, some of the best I have ever had. The herbed fries were crisp and hot, served with an aioli and ketchup. Wines by the glass, a decent rose and a sangiovese, were on point if not at the level of the food. We were comped to some pita and tzatsiki. Used the pita to soak up the savory mussel broth. Service was also very good -- friendly and attentive. My only issue was comfort on a hot evening. The inside was stuffy, so we ate outside which was a little too warm, if we had come later this might have been a better experience.

    This was my second time this month dining at Osteria Nando, and it is becoming my favorite restaurant on the Upper East Side. They have a wonderful menu with a wide variety of choices. My pear and endive salad was fresh and delicious, and the salmon burger was outstanding. I finished with the profiteroles, which were just superb. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful and also offers great outdoor seating. My server Adam was simply awesome once again, and made certain that everything was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

    We had a very good time dining here. The outdoor seating area is nice. Our waitress did a great job of answering our menu questions and offering suggestions. I had the Italian vegetable grain bowl topped with salmon which tasted wonderful and was a good sized portion. My sister ordered the lobster Benedict at the recommendation of the waitress and enjoyed it very much. Our food was served in a timely manner. Overall, we had a wonderful meal with great service. We will definitely eat here again on a future visit to Manhattan.

    Had such a great brunch at Osteria Nando. Made reservations just the night prior and got there 10 min early. Got seated right away in their outside area which was so nice. The food was absolutely delicious. Had the lobster benedict, others in my party had the lobster roll and a salad. So great - look forward to coming back.
