“Excellent restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

This restaurant is tucked away in Newtown but is definitely worth finding! We had the Branzino and it was delicious! The complimentary appetizer bean salad with their crusty bread is like a meal in itself. The restaurant has great atmosphere, service was excellent and the food was wonderful! We will definitely be returning!

“Felt like Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I have a lot to say. The evening started with a competent and friendly waitress. Maria told us a myriad of specials. Bread was delicious and the surprise of colorful tasty vegetables was something I've me ere seen before. Appetizer presented within minutes of ordering. The most fabulous scallops to share with the whole table - I want more! I ordered seafood pasta and asked Maria to change the pasta and she said okay but that highly recommended I stick with the chefs preparation. She was right. Linguini was al Dante. Seafood bathed in delicious wine and lemon sauce! Calamari was chewy for me but my partner inhaled it and said it was delicious. Dinner ended with complimentary lemon cello and tira misu TO DIE FOR. Found Vecchia Osteria and well be back! Thanks for great dinner!!

“Incredible Italian Cuisine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

This quiet little restaurant in Buck County PA is truly a gem! The branzino is to die for, the pastas taste like you were dining in Napoli or Sicilia. Pasquale the owner and his excellent staff get an "11" for service, atmosphere and the ability to meet any diner's wish. Have had many great meals here, including a big office Christmas party, which went without a blip. will return to this fine place often. Even the prices are wonderful!

“Family Value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

Chef Pasquale Palino and his family run Italian is consistent, tasty and fun. The rustic recipes are a homage to his upbringing in restaurants in his native Italy. Just ask him to feed you with no menu to fully experience the place or choose from his well put together menu of Italian favorites and family specialties. Priced right for regulars but with food that will make you want to return. I am now a regular and feel like I am home as soon as I walk through the door!

“Authentic and delicious Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2013

I've been to Italy multiple times and this is one of the few US restaurants that reminds me of my many fine dining experiences there. Wonderful service, excellent menu choices (love the seafood), and relaxed ambience.
