    We go there for the pizza at least once a week. They have a great selection of thin crust pizzas and the fact that the restaurant is BYOB makes it a great value. The staff is very attentive and the service is great.

    Good food, but not the "best Italian I ever ate;" however, the bread was outstanding. Quick service on the front end, but took forever to get the check and then for them to process the check.

    Food is very poorly seasoned. Minimal flavor. Reminds me of a cheap, American-Italian restaurant in the suburbs. The best part was the wine I brought. They need a new cook asap or some Italian cooking lessons if they are to sustain. Also, the crème brûlée was the consistency of flan? Our waitress was very nice though.

    We went here for restaurant week lunch yesterday and really enjoyed our meals! We loved the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant as well. The restaurant week lunch special includes 2 courses. We started with the bruschetta and Caesar salad for our appetizer courses. The bruschetta was extremely tasty and had large mozzarella on top. My Caesar salad was good as well, however I didn't like the roasted nuts that were added in. For our lunch courses, we had the burgers, prosciutto sandwich, and the crab capellini. I was a little surprised to see the burgers and sandwiches weren't served with anything at all. All of us enjoyed our dishes and they were good portion sizes. I'm glad we tried Osteria during restaurant week and will be back again soon!
