We were at Osteria Romana for an early lunch. I had requested a quiet table and the corner table was reserved for us. The restaurant was not very busy at that time, so we had an easy and long conversation. The food was excellent, the server very accommodating, since we were in no hurry, and we stayed for three hours. I would highly recommend Osteria Romana for its ambiance, its food and service.

First time here and it won’t be the last. Food was excellent. Veal saltimbocca and swordfish superb. Service was a bit slow but it was extremely busy and our waitress kept us informed. Desserts were excellent. We will be back!

Osteria Romana is consistently an exceptional fine dining experience. The waitstaff are courteous and friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing and conducive to conversation. The menu is extensive and has something for everyone. Even the bread that is brought to the table before you have ordered, is delicious, served with garlic cloves in olive oil. Recently, I had swordfish, which was a special menu item- it was superb! I highly recommend this restaurant and have been enjoying their offerings for years.

The food was good except for my risotto with wild mushrooms which I thought had a little too much of salt. The service was good. Want to try their Weekend brunch

Real nice spot for a Sunday brunch. If the weather is nice, ask to sit outside. They have an omelette and pancake/waffle/french toast option to start and then you can help yourself to the buffet. Raw bar is excellent plus they have salad, turkey, roast beef, roast lamb & ham. A pasta offering as well as sausage & meatballs. Pair that all with bottomless mimosas & bloody mary's and it really is a good meal at a nice spot. Only drawback is they don't start Sunday brunch till 11am.

Until my last visit, I would have recommended the restaurant but my last visit was very disappointing. I ordered mt steak medium-rear and it came out VERY well-done. Sent it back and when it came back, it was more medium than medium-rear.

Additionally, my $30 steak was chewy and tough. I doubt my family will be visiting anytime soon.

I have been here several times and it is always an incredibly delicious meal! The host is a wonderful young woman- always a smile on Her face. Gian Franco was beyond amazing- he is friendly, engaging and made a good night with great food an extraordinary experience- hang on to him! He makes a lot of the ambiance. LI know Mauricio from the Norwalk restaurant- this continues to amaze! It’s a gem of a restaurant!

The dining experience was great. The service was perfect and the food was, for the most part, absolutely excellent. The eggplant rollatini was the tastiest eggplant we have ever had. My wife makes her own pasta and we both commented on how excellent the pasta was made and cooked. Perfectly al dente. My wife also makes bread and we both enjoyed the bread offered with the meals.
I enjoyed the selection of bourbons available as that is my favorite spirit.
The only criticism we have is the mushroom sauce was a little too salty.

Thank you for a nice evening and we will definitely be back soon!!

Food, as usual, was good. Beet salad is excellent. Wish the kitchen would realize that serving 1 breadstick is ridiculous. They will give you more if asked, but there is always only 1 lone breadstick on top of the slices of bread that is served for the table.

Food at Osteria Romana is usually quite good. Had the fixed price menu which is a good buy. Ordered the filet medallions that came with lobster ravioli (1 ravioli!) Ordered meat rare - medium rare, but it came to the table medium. Our waiter, Ron, was watching me cut into the steak and knew right away that it wasn't done correctly. He immediately took the plate away and re-ordered the dish. Meat was perfect the 2nd time. Always nice to have an attentive waiter. Desserts are not the greatest. Two selections offered on fixed price - I got the chocolate cheesecake which I didn't care for, and husband got panna cotto which he said didn't have much flavor.

Osteria Romano scored a 5 again! We happened to catch Pasta Night on a Sunday with a price fixe at $29.99. Everything was delicious as usual - the appetizer or salad choices, two pastas, choosing your own style of pasta and your favorite sauce, as well as the dessert. Try it. You won’t be disappointed.

Food is always great. We were a bit disappointed with our server. It was our 35th wedding anniversary and we chose to have dinner here to celebrate. We sat for 20 minutes without our server even coming over to offer to get us drinks or appetizers. He waited on others around us and left us for last.

We celebrated our four year anniversary here and they went well above and beyond to make our date night special. We are truly grateful to Ron for making it such a wonderful night for us as we don’t get to go out too often by ourselves due to our little ones. We loved all the food we ate as well. We can’t wait to go back and try out the Sunday Brunch. Thank you again!

Came here for a 88th birthday brunch and arrived fifteen minutes early. We were seated in the most cramped area of the restaurant near the hostess area, where we were watch and blocked continuously by hostess duties to our seats.

Service was fair. My son’s waffle was forgotten and we had to request our made to order omelettes. Other tables seemed to have gotten the bulk of the attention and were accommodated with regular service by the staff.

Overall, food wasn’t bad; it was good. But I’ve had better brunches elsewhere in a more congenial atmosphere.

Began with the mozzarella app with arugula-delicious and food mix of flavors. We had the bucatini and the chicken in the champagne sauce-both were flavorful and good size portions with fresh ingredients!
