We've been there several times. This time was a little busier than it sometimes is. It seemed like they were understaffed. The waitresses spent most of their time running. Service was definitely scattered. Our waitress made a few mistakes, or the kitchen made a few mistakes. If they had one more server, it would have been fine. I've never been there when they've had more than two, so it might be something they should think about. These two were perfectly fine and on a slightly slower night would have been great. That night both of them were struggling.

As always the food was excellent.

I won't hold this one less than perfect night against them, and I'll definitely go back.

My eggs Benedict with mortadella were perfect for me- crunchy thin English muffin, fried mortadella, just runny poached eggs with just a reasonable amount of hollandaise. Cappuccino also well done. Attentive, pleasant service. Very reasonable price exceptional value.

The place is kinda noisy but the overall ambience was good. The food was mediocre - particularly the Pollo which was dry and lacked flavor.

I hope no one reads this, because , I want to be able to get a reservation in the future. The food was lovely , the Burrata and Prosciutto classic, but wonderful ingredients. The Octopus , so very tender and well seasoned. The Snow Peas, Mint & Pecorino Romano salad , fresh and just about perfect.. We were there early on a Sunday , and had reservations, the restaurant filled up very quickly . Looking forward to returning.

Genuine Italian food and service. Started out quiet at 6:30 but was pretty animated by 7:30. Lots of nice vegetarian options and all dishes were well made and generous in size. Interesting wine list throughout the range of prices.

This was our first time at Osteria 106, although we were familiar with the venue from visits to the previous restaurant in the same space. What a difference! We went on a Friday night, and the place was hopping, with people waiting to get in. Food was excellent and we very much enjoyed the evening. It's not quite 5 stars yet (I was unimpressed by the lump of steamed spinach that accompanied my veal piccatta), but the veal was very good, albeit not the pounded thin presentation that I have come to expect. My wife loved the butternut squash ravioli. Available wines were more than adequate. Our server was new (first night) but she did a fine job, even though she was not yet an expert on the menu.

Osteria 106 was an all-around excellent experience. I appreciated the attentive service, the cozy ambiance, as well as the diverse menu options (including multiple daily specials). The salmon, with mustard sauce, was prepared and seasoned perfectly, as were the vegetables. I ordered the cheesecake (made in house with ricotta) for dessert, which was also fantastic. Overall, the quality-to-price ratio makes Osteria 106 an exceptional value. I would highly recommend.

We had brunch there. My panino was ok, not great. I think my friend’s egg Benedict with smoked salmon was a better choice. Cappuccino was one of the best I’ve had in the city. Generous mimosas; reasonably priced. Would like to try the dinner menu. Very nice co-owner, Melissa.

Our second visit and we weren’t disappointed. There’s obviously a lot of Italian food in New York. Osteria 106 manages to simplify it and make it more authentic. This really is a little piece of Italy, and I can’t recommend it enough

The staff is extremely snooty, and unfriendly. The food was mediocre and extremely over priced. It was beyond noisy! Definitely not worth the money- there are hundreds of better restaurants on the upper west side! I would not recommend Osteria 106 to anyone!!

I stumbled on Osteria 106 shortly after it opened two years ago, and it was a find. The menu is imaginative (not the same old Italian standards), the food is really first rate (love the shredded snow pea salad!), it's cozy, and the service is excellent. The wine offerings are very good and very well priced. I've recommended it to many friends in the area and taken out-of-town visitors there. Everyone has loved it.

This charming neighborhood restaurant has delicious food (order the snow pea salad!) and a community feel. I've now tried pastas, chicken, fish... all wonderful. The staff is great but be warned that some nights of the week can be extremely busy. My last visit on a Tuesday night was perfect. The wine list is lovely. The restaurant is on 106th and easy to access from the B/C/ and 1 lines. A great find!
