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!

We had a very nice dinner here tonight! Attractive room (in the back - more rustic looking) and Mike M is an excellent server - attentive and very familiar with the menu and wine list. I had the scallops with mushrooms and butternut squash, which was excellent. The bread was light and crusty, served with roasted garlic in olive oil... More

Any pasta lover will be happy with the menu at Osteria Via Stato. I had the seasonal pumpkin and sage dish and it was lovely. The portion looked small compared other mains but was just right. Our waiter did everything he could to make sure we were happy.

Nice place, overall good food BUT very porr service (and that bothered us when you know you have to tip that much in the U.S...). We ordered the Italian dinner party for two, so were already spending 80 dollars just on the food..so we asked the waitress for her recommendations regarding wine, as we were looking for a "reasonnable option"...

We went to Osteria Via Stato with a large group before the play Book of Morman. I really liked the fact that the food was delicious, service really good and the room was beautiful. The room was large and spacy for such a large group. One wall was exposed Limestone and gave the feel of Italy. We were seated in... More

We had our ceremony and reception at Osteria Via Stato in October 2016. We chose the venue because we always enjoy the food, service and ambiance of the restaurant. We expected the same level of service on the day of our wedding but the whole staff went above and beyond. From planning, to logistics, to menus, and setup, we felt... More

We've stayed at the Embassy Suites several times now but did not patronize the restaurant which can be accessed from their lobby. We were hungry and had a few hours before we had to be somewhere so we ventured into Osteria Via Stato. They were running a lunch special (Friday) and we received soup, sandwich, and dessert.
