I loved this Osteria. We had the Garganelli (22) with two glasses of wine and Polpettine.
Sorbetti and Coffee concluded the excellent light lunch. Impressed!
Back again when I return to New Jersey. Not to be missed. Great Service.

The food is excellent, the service attentive but not overbearing, and the wine selection is awesome. Try the specials - always something interesting and tasty. I like that some of the meals can be had in a smaller size. I also like that you can see into the kitchen from the dining room. The noise level might be too much for someone looking for a quiet dinner for two, but for a group business meal it's always terrific. They have no trouble accomodating groups as large as 15 when I've been there.

Wen here with two friends to celebrate my birthday. The server onlly gave us the most minimum of attention and that was very grudgingly. Food was excellent. Especially the soft shell crab appitizers. Bartender knew how to make martinis. The experience again was shadowed by the lack of attention by the waiter. We had to call him over to order and then again to order dessert. Hopefully it was just a bad night

We met friends at this restaurant after having many dinners at the location in the city. We liked the atmosphere much better at this location although the chairs and table weren't the most comfortable. The food was spectacular and we thought the wine list was fairly priced. You could tell the pasta was homemade. Portion size was also very reasonable and the service was fine. We would come back again if in the area.

the food was excellent - salad appetizers are fresh & large; the grilled octopus was very tender and tasty - even for non-octopus eaters; for entrees; the pork chops were very moist & tasty; organic chicken was not dried out; short ribs were super tender & tasty.

Very crowded but they were very good at seating us within a few minutes of our reservation (we were 6 people).

Ample parking - strip mall / right next to a CVS (a little tough to find)
