Attentive serving staff, great menu, interesting and surprising menu - would return. Wasn't at all a daunting locale for a single traveller either, which is sometimes frowned upon at restaurants.

Osso Buco is a highly recommendable place to dine, especially if one is in search of traditional Italian food. The service has always been excellent when I have dined there, the staff is friendly and extremely attentive. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced for the quality meal being provided. The environment is extremely comfortable and the setting is lovely.

We had a great lunch and very good service. I loved their mussels. The house wine was even excellent.

We visitied Osso Bucco after noticing the restaurant while walking through the neighborhood. The staff was pleasant and the food, especially the pasta, was perfectly prepared. Portions were generous and the entire evening made for a wonderful experience, If you are looking to try a new location do not miss !!

Took a business contact to dinner here this week, and we both enjoyed the setting and the food. She had the salmon with side salad, and I had veal marsala. We both enjoyed our meal and will return.

We've been to the Osso Buco at 93rd and 3rd twice in the past two months, and enjoyed it very much both times. Service was friendly and accommodating both times, and the food was quite good. Fairly standard Italian fare, but done well. It's a good neighborhood restaurant. I've paid more for lesser food at other restaurants. We would not... More
