Fantastic Italian restaurant located at the west end of restaurant row in Falmouth. A traditional wooden bar in the entry room leading to three other rooms, each with a handful of tables. The walls are decorated with antiques while the warm lighting invites a quiet...More

Had heard this restaurant was excellent, and it was even better than expected!!! Weekday evening was pretty quiet so we were seated immediately. Great service, with delicious cocktails to start. One of the daily specials was cream of butternut soup, and it was the best...More

My wife has candles burning in the house every night. The use of candles at Osteria La Civetta adds a lot to the ambiance while eating. Not to mention how good the food is.

My family and I just had a great dinner there. The Bolognese sauce was the best I have ever had and the penne with zucchini was great too. Strange menu but the food was very good.

OK I love Bologna Italy, and this place is run by Bolognese. It really manages to capture the spirit of an Italian ristorante -- no music, enough light to see by, and not annoyingly noisy. The food is meticulously prepared from always fresh ingredients. Excellent...More

We had dinner there recently. I was impressed with the quality of the homemade pasta- some of the best I've had. The Taglietelle is better than the Pomodora, the patter being somewhat bland and the former being a bit more complex and flavorful. The bread...More
