    We loved Osteria La Baia! We had meatballs, pizza and pasta. Everything tasted exactly the way it should. The service was great and the ambiance was what you would expect at an Italian eatery. If you’re looking for a solid Italian meal, I Highly recommend Osteria La Baia.

    Absolutely delicious. Can’t decide if I liked the pasta or pizza better! Atmosphere, vibe, and service were also excellent. We had a great time celebrating our anniversary here. Will be back soon!

    Service and ambiance were great. Sauces were great but anything that required live cooking was cafeteria level. Salmon was over cooked and super dry, same for steak. Mussels were chewy. Gelato was indescriptive and flavorless. Hard pass on coming again.

    What is on the menu doesn’t reflect what will be served… maccheroni instead rigatoni,… tomatoes sauce you got cherry…. Italian brand miss used and too expensive.

    My friend and I had lunch here before the theater. I was so delighted with this restaurant! The ambience, very professional service, delicious food, and the open windows made a very pleasant experience that is very well located close to parking and the theater.

    I had been looking forward to trying Osteria La Baia, and I was not disappointed. The restaurant is absolutely beautiful. My endive salad with pears, skate fish with roasted potatoes and gelato were all so delicious. The service was outstanding and the prices most reasonable for the quality, portion sizes and location. It is quite loud, but that's only because everyone is having such a great time.

    Wine was overpriced. I got talked into the special. The scallops were undercooked, and the noodles appeared to be Thai style noodles not Italian. It was gross, made my mom taste it to make sure I wasn’t being picky she agreed. Sent it back and just got a Caesar salad. Her orecchiette was tasty but not life changing. Waiter went from overly polite to cold when I sent the dish back.

    This is the second time this week I met for a business lunch at the restaurant. They have a special three course lunch menu which I had the first time and we also shared a delicious pizza. I had the Caesar salad and steak. The second time we shared the Caesar again ( delicious with anchovies) and the pappardelle bolognese. I live in San Diego but am in NY often for business connected to Broadway theater. Adding this restaurant as a new favorite!

    the food was not that good, small portions and just bland food. but the service was outstanding. very nice staff and environment. the restaurant was super clean, and pretty. for looks and cleanness it is perfect, but as much as food, there wasn’t much variety.

    Honestly, the food is average. You can have much better Italian food at the same or lower price point in Manhattan. The problem with the food is that it lacks flavor. It’s bland. Shame because it’s a nice place.

    I like Woodstock era music, Dylan, Hendrix, Mitchell, etc. but it’s incongruous in a white tablecloth restaurant, especially when erring on too loud. Not convinced the striped bass special wasn’t Bronzino— another white fish. Actually, pretty sure it was. The best part of that dish was the roasted artichoke hearts Service was attentive but slow. We had a nice time, just when asked to review, not certain the time wasn’t nice because great to catch up with friends vs the dining experience.

    Ambience was nice. Food was mediocre and overpriced. Our waiter was clueless and not helpful. My friend had endless shells in her lobster pasta - which stabbed her gums. No acknowledgment or compensation by the waiter or chef. Will not recommend this restaurant.

    This was our second visit. And we won't likely be back. The Maitre d'Hotel was surly and disagreeable to us and our guests. The pizza was just ok. The wine was way, way overpriced. They said that it was under new management and if so, they have their work cut out for them.
