This is a wonderful restaurant. I must suggest people eat inside, as the terminus for two bus lines was right by the dining area, and they were coming and going constantly.The food, service and friendliness were fabulous. The conversation, intermittent at best.

Melissa our host , and i say host because she made us feel welcome. Pasta cooked perfect al dente ( which as a chef is my pet peeve) cannot say enough about how we were made to feel welcomed and not rushed. Perfect experience!!

Everything is always wonderful at Osteria 106. Excellent food made with love with quality ingredients. Personable service. They remember their regulars. We always feel at home here. The real deal. Be sure to get the tiramisu to punctuate your perfect meal.

On several visits here, I've found the food to be excellent. Last night my pasta tubes with seafood was not good. Pasta was too al dente, and I can forgive for that, but sea food was very overcooked. In particular, the shrimp were mushy. On the bright side, the beet salad with goat cheese was very good. The service was very good and my friend liked her risotto. We sat outside, in part because we thought it would be quieter. Wrong, the restaurant is on a street that gets a lot of car and truck traffic, so it's probably more pleasant inside.

What a lovely neighborhood locale, loaded with authentic character, not unlike one of those osterias that you might find off the beaten tourist track in Roma, perhaps in Trastevere. The owners and the hostess are charming and the food is simple and delicious, and moderately priced. There's a romantic ambiance about the entire endeavor (and one of the most immaculate restrooms in the entire city). Brava!

The food is always spectacular here. I’m never disappointed. They stick to the dishes that they do best, and don’t attempt to stray into food types that differ too much from their ambiance. I love coming here.

Way Upper west side/Harlem neighborhood gem! Italian family restuarant featuring fresh homemade pastas and foodie dishes that are Genuinely delicious. Love the park-let (on the street) outdoor eating area on a nice night despite 106th being a bit of a thoroughfare (that I hope NYC makes permanent throughout the City even after Covid subsides) . Owner hostess was lovely and fin, adding to our most enjoyable dinner.

Osteria 106 is a jewel! Every dish is prepared with brilliance and passion. I have never been disappointed by anything I have eaten. Some standouts are the snow pea salad, the bolognese, the octopus and just about everything else. What really makes Osteria 106 so special is the owners. Melissa, her husband and her team are kind, caring and authentic people who make their guests feel like they are coming into their home. I cannot get enough of Osteria 106 and hope anyone who read this jumps right onto Opentable and makes a reservation.

The food here is outstanding. I love the atmosphere and the servers are really nice. Only complaint I had was that our server was quite pushy to order (I understand it's covid times) and when we ask her for 2 minutes to decide she just stood next to us waiting. A little uncomfortable for everybody but it was ok. Not a big deal but something that can definitely be address as a quick round to give people water etc. would have easily given us the time to decide not he food.

In any case highly recommend this place, best Italian food on the UWS!

We took outside seating which is under a see through canopy with plants on the side. Each table had a stylish pina led light in place of a candle. The creme brûlée was done just right and other more adventurous dishes were delicious. Specials are priced above the regular menu items.

Wow! We stumbled upon this neighborhood gem and couldn’t be happier. The food was absolutely delicious... every single bite.
Everything was so fresh and perfectly cooked. The majority of the pasta is made in house including the gnocchi, fettuccini, and even ravioli. Others are hand made and imported straight from Italy.
The ambiance is so sweet. We sat outside and it was lovely. Inside looked quaint and delightful as well.
The service was prompt and warm and friendly. We felt at home right away. Casual yet so attentive.
Everything was a great value. We just absolutely love the place and could not recommend it more highly. Can’t wait to see go back!
