Three ordered pasta dishes and the pasta was done just right. Portions were generous as were the side dishes. Chicken was disappointing, chewy and didn't seem thoroughly cooked. Deserts are a must.

My wife and I sat outside here and drank mojitos and ate olives etc for like 4 hours this fall. It was fun. Food was good. Bartender was great. Atmosphere was fantastic. I'd recommend it.

We ate in the pizza part of the Osteria. This part of the restaurant is not as fancy and nice as the other part of the restaurant but it offers really good pizzas and I had one of the best octopus plates in the USA. Our waiter was not one of the nicest people, at least not to us, cause... More

Came back after an excellent dinner last year. 15 year old ordered off the kid menu as she just wanted something simple. 12 year old wanted a "special order" which they easily accommodated. Everyone was very happy with their meal. My hubby got a steak for $46 which basically came with no sides yet covered his entire plate. He said... More

We shared a few apps and two mail courses. Each dish was delicious. I especially loved the bread and roasted garlic in a balsamic vinaigrette. When we sat down It was brought to our table . Service was a bit slow. We had kids with us. Our food was brought out immediately. The kids had to wait a long time... More

This restaurant has a door in the Embassy Suites so it is convenient to hotel guests. We went for lunch and the service and food were very good. Our servers were very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed our luncheon special.

The pizza looked great as I entered, I was asked would I eat pizza or the full menu? Apparently the pizza oven is too small to allow all diners to order pizza. You can order a fixed menu style with lots of different courses, the food was excellent. For my next visit I will be trying out the pizza!
