Our family has been enjoying Osteria Romana's food since their opening in Norwalk. We highly recommend a visit. The service is always friendly and the food is great.

The veal was absolutely tender and delicious. The side of mixed vegetables were delightful. My husband had the clams dish that was also tender and perfectly prepared. We would happily go back.

Haven’t been to Osteria in many years when it first opened. We had moved away. Back visiting family and we been there twice. What a wonderful surprise! The Bucatini, chicken piccata, shrimp scampi, etc. all exceeded our expectations. Real Italian ricotta cheesecake a bonus!

Brunch was fantastic. I don’t normally post reviews and am a bit picky with quality, taste and preparation. Osteria Romana was perfect, the calamari, cooked to perfection, the roast beef exquisite. The meatballs like my Sicilian grandma used to make. Fabulous.

The place is small, crowded and very noisy. We can hardly hear each other. The table is too small for a party of eight people. Tables are very close to each other. Service and food is good. Spinach salad needed more dressing.

The special Italian appetizer that I had, Vongole Oregananta (Baked Clams) was one of the best that I have tasted. The Pappardelle Bolognese is a very substantial and delicious dish. This dish was very close to what I had enjoyed in Milan, Italy. I have...More
