The Osteria is a good Italian restaurant. We went there late I the evening for a small dinner and took the bruschetta - good taste. The waiter was very friendly and fast, overall atmosphere was also good. Prices are ok.

Walked in one weekday night w/ a small group and had a terrific meal. Large menu, great selections, everything we ordered was really good and the staff were lovely. I sent other people there the next night and they had an equally good experience. I highly recommend it.

Very rarely do I get to indulge in a great tasting gluten free pizza while sipping some great wine. This place has both! You can dine indoors or street side (which I recommend).

Weekend in New York, this restaurant was across the street from our hotel. Casual dining. The food selection was very good.

The highlights of this dinner were the delicious bottle of Amarone, our table on the sidewalk, and our skilled waiter. Everything was delicious, classic Italian style. The only imperfection was that the bread basket came AFTER we had ordered, so because we had ordered Focaccia, we had too much bread. I would happily return.

We came here for drinks and dessert because it was near our hotel. The waitress gave us this weird response when we asked her for the dessert menu - said that it was against policy to bring desserts when there was no food on the table. Anyways, she ended up bringing the menu. Just average and overpriced.

As first time visitors to New York, we found the Osteria Laguna very early and we were glad of that. We went back several times. There is a varied menu and it is very popular with people who work in nearby offices (always a good sign).

A relaxed and fabulous restaurant. The food is superb and service divine. Fresh farm to table Italian food. Outdoor dining as well as upscale indoor dining. Great pricing and the desserts are to die for. Try the tiramisu or the meringues!!!! The management is incredible and is dedicated to exceeding clients expectations. Enjoy your meals!!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
