Absolutely a wonderful experience. We come to this restaurant once or twice a year and it is always absolutely fabulous. We always sit at the bar and we are entertained by Michelle the bartender. Yeah atmosphere is always professional, the food is always five star in the ambience is just warming and inviting. We love this restaurant.

Christmas Eve was beautiful at Osteria Romana. The dinner started out a little slow but once our drinks and appetizers came, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect evening. The food was delicious. They made a special order for my 14 year old as it was not on the menu. The Pollo Cardinale was fantastic as was my husband’s Pollo Rustico. My son had the chicken parm and my older daughter had the shrimp scampi. Both of them said how fantastic their meals were. We finished our dinner with a tartufo, lava cake and a dessert made with Nutella. I would highly recommend this Norwalk Charm. You will not be disappointed.

We ordered take out and my husband could not eat his meal. He ordered veal and it was very tough and stringy. We were quite surprised as we love this place. The food is always great. We have never ordered take out before and will not again. The manager did credit my husband's dinner. My dinner was fine.

Close your eyes and you're dining in Rome. Osteria never disappoints. Excellent food and service. Enjoyable ambience. Try the chicken in Prosecco sauce and leave room for the Nutella brioche. Both super!

Always a sure bet. The food is 1st rate and always a great value. The Prix Fixe is great. Variety and includes appetizer or salad or soup, main dish and coffee or tea with a choice of two desserts. And the Sunday buffet brunch is the best deal around. Nice friendly staff. True Italian food.

It was our 19th Anniversary and we were greeted with 2 glasses of Prosecco. It was a lovely surprise. Our servers were there when we needed them and stayed away so we could talk and have our evening together. The food was outstanding, what more can I say.
