“Amazing Italian food from a real italian couple”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We came here as a recommendation by someone at another restaurant. I had the puff pasty salmon and it was so good. My friends had the butternut squash tortellini and it was tasty. All of their pastas are made in-house so it makes it more traditional Italian.

“Like Being in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Superb Italian fare; pasta is the way to go here. Beautiful decor, w items imported by young owners from their native northern Italy. Best Italian restaurant in Falmouth, hands down, no contest. Charming bar.

“Evening with friends!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

We weren't looking for something special, but we surely found it! It has a lovely cozy atmosphere, with several small rooms, all decorated for the holidays. The wine list was chosen with care to be easily paired with the food order. All of us had homemade pasta and loved the texture and taste. Mine ravioli was stuffed with wild duck and mushrooms with a light (if that's possible) alfredo sauce, paired with a pinot noir. The service was quiet, efficient, without being intrusive, and the evening added to our "memories" list.

“Dinner with girlfriends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2012

Explored Falmouth on a beautiful sunny Cape Cod Saturday. Osteria did not open until 5:30 pm, but we were allowed in early and had a drink at the bar. The bar is rather small, but they had a very good wine menu. We all selected a different red and shared - nice way to try different wines. We started with a cheese and meat plate. A little pricey at $18, but the cheese and meats were fresh and very good. We each tried something different for dinner and shared. The butternut squash ravioli with sage butter was heavenly. I enjoyed a clam pasta dish with pureed potatoes - different, like nothing I have ever had and it was wonderful. The homemade pastas are a welcome treat when so many other restuarants do not make it. The other dish was a rather uneventful one. When we left the place was full. I would defintely go back. If you are in town, you shoudl check it out.

“Somewhat of a letdown.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

Nice location, friendly service, food a letdown. Main course came very quickly and had obviously been cooked beforehand and reheated. Very disappointed. Could it have been the chefs night off!
