An excellent restaurant to make you feel you are in Italy and enjoying a wonderful dinner.
Reasonable prices and good food, what more can you ask for.

“The food, the wine, the service, the noise all top level”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

What a great place to meet friends for dinner. Unfortunately they are all there and there is no noise muffling, so it's like conversing in a train station. Still the food was fantastic, the wine selection good, but not great, and the service was excellent. I won't recommend any specific menu item because everything my friends and I had was delicious. Remember to make reservations.

“Osteria Restaurant Norwalk, CT”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Service is excellent with a warm, welcoming environment. The previous restaurant at this location was much noisier. The house wine is good and a good value. The garlic infused oil provided for the bread basket is a nice surprise.

We each had a different Italian entree and both enjoyed them very much and both had enough left over to take home for lunch the next day. Outdoor seating is available but we have not asked to be seated outside.

Excellent value.

“Turned a corner, Outdoor seating, Great food”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is the former Via Sforza location; the restaurant that came in after Via Sforza was not so great. But this current reincarnation - has really come into its own, with an outstanding outdoor seating area, great Italian dishes, home made breads (from its neighboring pizza/Italian Specialty store/restaurant I believe), home made pasta and a lot of nice decorative touches make this a very nice place for lunch or dinner. Prices are appropriate. Service is really quite good, the waitstaff is well trained, prepared, upbeat and attentive. All of the dishes are authentic and show that there is some talent in the kitchen. Recommendations - the fixed price lunch or dinner makes selecting your meal easy, and the price is right. We like the bread that they bring to the table, gratis, the papardelle dishes, the cavatelli pasta, the lasagna, among others. The only dish I have had here that did not strike me as absolutely delicious was a fish dish on the lunch fixed price menu, which had soggy bread crumbs on top. Other than that, my experiences here have been nothing but positive, and I hope they keep it up. Highly Recommended. CH
