As we stood waiting for our table in the tiny entry area, I couldn't tell what we were in for, as it was our first time to Vecchia Osteria. It didn't take long to know we had made a good choice - even before entering! There was a steady stream of people, many of which were greeted like family -... More

Great service. Consistently great food. Fresh ingredients. Best deal in town. Because this restaurant is so popular expect a wait on weekends and some weekdays.

My wife and I come at least once a week... keep coming back to try something new. Pasta dishes are homemade and are phenomenal!

Just what we were looking for to celebrate my granddaughters Christening, a family friendly atmosphere and excellent food! It was a lovely day so the outside seating was perfect. I can't say enough about the delicious food as it was enjoyed by all. I would highly recommend this venue for a family gathering.

Very good food but they continue to have problems with honoring reservations and because of that you wind up with a long wait crowded into a small space with all the others waiting as well. So I won't return to this restaurant ever again. This restaurant doesn't have food that is that spectacular to put up with their desire to... More

Not sure what the buzz is about this restaurant. It is a local establishment, with average food, and average service. Typical red-sauce restaurant. I have dined here for both business and pleasure, and have not been rocked by the food. The best thing going is the outdoor patio. Otherwise it is not memorable. The female wait staff was more interested... More

I had to write this review as friends and I visited this little gem for the third time last Friday, and as always, the food, service and ambience was impeccable. You will feel as if you are sitting in Rome or Naples enjoying the best vodka rigatoni, bruschetta, and linguine with clams! And desserts - Mama Mia! We had a... More

Pros: Really cool building/architecture. Liked the family business aspect and classic Italian design Sitting outside in the nice weather is worth going there for. BYOB! Fresh ingredients. Friendly workers. Cons: Food was just average. Menu was good, but nothing really stood out for us. For what we got the price was a little high. Check the price of the app... More

This is the hidden gem of Newtown. It's not often your greeted and sat by the owner and before your wine is even opened there are two delicious apps at your table. Fresh bruschetta and a platter of thinly slice prosciutto and sopressata with cheeses and olives. the atmosphere is straight out of a restaurant in Italy hands down. The... More
