My wife and I slipped in to this place for a late dinner Thursday night and it was still crowded, which is a good indication. It's a small place with maybe a dozen or so tables. Quite quaint. Seated in the back and I wondered if we got lost. Finally placed our order, two lasagnas and a couple glasses of... More

Small intimate restaurant that is very service oriented. They have great food, reasonable prices and they really want to make sure that you have a good meal and get just what you want. Pasta was excellent. Very authentic.

The food is good. We ordered Lasagne, it was made with veal this day. I burped garlic for hours, but still liked it. A soup that is like chinese Egg Drop soup but with spinach, was $9.00, and the Lasagne with a salad was $17.00. I asked the owner about the soup price and he defended it. In my opinion... More

Quaint authentic Italian restaurant with excellent food. The wife and I started with two appetizers - a stuffed sacchettini pasta special and the polenta with seafood ragu. Both were delicious, but the pasta especially so. For entrees, we had the Osso Bucco and the lasagna of the day with a large meat filled tortellini. Amazing! I wanted pasta and couldn't... More

Authentic Italian food. Fresh homemade pasta. Menu on the smaller side but if you cant find what you want on the menu, they will make it for you. I love that. The food is delish! They dont take reservations so be prepared to get there early, before 7, or have a glass of wine outside while you wait. Its worth... More

This is a true family run establishment that takes great pride in their delicious and inventive take on the Italian Osteria. It's tucked in the corner of a funky strip mall so it's easy to miss. Wine selection is limited but good and the specials are well, special. The veal dishes are amazing! It's a bit pricey for an "Osteria"... More

This is a tiny Italian restaurant that does not take reservations. There is a by-the-glass wine shop next door where you can wait for your table and chat with each other. The food is excellent and the wine very reasonable. Home made pasta and lots of good choices for dinner. Just follow the rules and you will have a wonderful... More

We waited outside for 30 min waiting or it to open at 5:30, after finding our original destination, Pane Rustica, closed for the night. We walked in and the owner looked at my daughter and said I only allow 7 year olds. My daughter is 5 and he turned us away. Meanwhile there was a mother and her son behind... More

My friends and I show up at the restaurant at 530 and there are two gentlemen sitting at the front door looking out so I walk up to open the door. One of the men opens the door and asked to help us and I said we were there for dinner. He said we're not open; I said the website... More

We had just come home from a month long road trip, having (mainly) fabulous meals in a variety of places. No food in the fridge, so we had dinner at Osteria Natalina. We had not been there since it was called Spartaco (the name of the owner), years ago. It is a very samll place, no reservations, and only one... More
