Our pasta, prepared daily in the restaurant, is a favorite for all of our customers. Our commitment to quality can be seen in our selection of the freshest ingredients from local producers and our attention to quality and detail. We at Osteria Romana pride ourselves in offering traditional Italian family recipes made with the finest ingredients.
Every meal is prepared fresh upon order. The pasta, fish, chicken dishes are all delicious. Our specials are exciting. Modern twists on classic favorites, like our signature hand-made pasta with wild mushrooms and a brandy truffle sauce, are what keep customers coming back."
We all loved our meals, including my Italian stepmother who is an excellent cook and very hard to please! Highly recommended and we will be back! (this was my 4th or 5th visit - happy each time)
Have been wanting to go here for some time AND it was worth the wait! Jen....our waitperson....was very helpful and attentive. Our food was delicious! I really appreciated the happy birthday serenade in Italian! The birthday treat was delicious.....as was the lemoncello!
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!
We love this place. Chicken Prosecco incredible. Seared tuna good on this visit but not the usual outstanding I am used. Always look forward to our night out here.
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.
great! Food was delicious, service friendly. Only wish the outside of been open since it was such a beautiful night.
Love coming to Osteria Romana, wish they were closer to Brookfield but always worth the trip.
Excellent food and service! The food was absolutely to died for.
The food was very tasty and presented nicely and the pricing was reasonable.
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.
It is always a pleasure dining here. Food is great,service is excellent.
We always have a great meal when we go to Osteria Romana. The music is a bonus. We always enjoy and sometimes we bring friends!
Food and service were excellent. It is painfully loud in the restaurant. If you are going to catch up with friends, I would not recommend.
I love Osteria Romana! Fresh pasta and sauces are amazing! Everything there is delicious!
Great restaurant. Quality dishes and great staff . Always a great experience
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!
Dinner with out of town family. Very comfortable and delicious. We enjoyed our meals and wine. Thanks to great wait staff, hostess and bartender. 😊
Outstanding food and friendly/professional service!
Second time we were there. First time...service was much better. Felt we were being rushed this time. Food wasn’t as good. Lasagna was terrible. When we spoke to server about it he walked away with no solution. Disappointed.
An absolutely amazing brunch! We loved that custom omelettes, French toast, pancakes and waffles are ordered through the waitstaff so you don’t have to wait on a line! The buffet included an impressive raw bar, Italian lunch choices and desserts with great quality all you can drink bloody mary’s and mimosas. Background music was really nice too. We are looking forward to coming back soon!
We took some friends to Osteria for the first time and they enjoyed it. There was a beet salad with whipped goat cheese on the menu that was wonderful! Dessserts here are not always the greatest, but the gelato is quite good.
Always an incredible meal and experience...
Consistently delicious with attention to detail. Service is good. That’s all you need!
Always an excellent meal.
Great service and a friendly atmosphere.
This is by far one of the best brunches ever! The food was fresh, temperature appropriate and simply yummy! There is a limit of 2 hours but that is more than enough time to eat, drink, enjoy without feeling rushed at all. We are already planning our next visit!!
We love this restaurant! The food is always amazing. The service is always exceptional. They are family friendly without feeling like you’re eating at a chain restaurant. It truly is a special place and we always look forward to going here because we know it’s a guaranteed great dining experience!
Osteria Romana (Monroe, CT) is a fabulous respite from the daily grind. Luscious foods prepared with the care of grand ma! Certainly we have our favorites, (The beef carpaccio app for instance -huge portion with superb flavors), but we TRY to have something different every time these days- result: we have been so impressed with the breadth of awesomeness we have received. Had the Prix Fixe menu last time, so a dessert was included, (pistachio cheesecake) oh so good. The Pappardella they know the food items inside & out - a pleasure. Finally when it comes to wines they have a great and unique selection, allow recommendation as well. This allowed us to try a Super Tuscan WHITE wine, yep we thought they were always red too. Fantastic. Yep, om 2nd and last Tuesday of the month a superb guitarist, Chris Kalafus, plays for your dining pleasure. Perfecto!
Gratziano came to our table and chatted with us. He is a gracious and hospitable guy. He made sure we enjoyed our tune in his restaurant and treated us extremely well.
The service and food is exceptional!
Food great, choices on the prix fixe menu well thought out, the service as always was the best.
LOVE this restaurant. It’s my go- to with hubby or night out with friends. This last visit was with 4 girlfriends to celebrate bdays. Food was awesome (innumerable excellent choice options) and Ron was a great waiter...as always The ambiance is perfect. Love it!
Glad we sat on the veranda, the main dining room is very noisy plus they had a guitar player. Fortunately, they called to ask where we wanted to sit, that was great. Food was excellent as was the service.
Loved it! I will definitely go back!
Service and food were fantastic.
Food was great, 3 different people came over to ask if we had been taken care of. Was very busy, the only downfall was being sat at a tiny table and one chair was somewhat in a walkway for people and servers.
Food, service and atmosphere
Will return soon
