My husband and my mother and I were staying in Falmouth for the evening and just wanted something close to our hotel to have a nice dinner the day before my birthday. I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor with good reviews and a nice menu. We arrived and were pleased with the quaint ambiance - candlelit, small place, but not... More

We absolutely loved dining at Osteria La Civetta. There were plenty of food options (and gluten-free pasta available!), and each food item served was delicious. We really appreciated how friendly our waitress was, and how thorough the entire staff seemed. It definitely isn't a restaurant for those who are on a tight budget, but it was a very enjoyable evening!

We just happened by and were simply astonished. It's not often you strike lightning like this without even trying. The simple, attractive dining rooms are totally without pretension; likewise our waitress. But the food was out of this world. We began by splitting a seasonal salad: greens, peach slices and figs with a piquant olive oil dressing. From there we... More

Classic Italian food - well done, some items expensive - like $30 for salmon filet with collard greens in a bit high. But we like sitting at the bar - wine is a generous pour and good selection of Italian wines. Sauces are very authentic and yummy. I like to sit in the bar or by the windows in main... More

Let's make no secret of it: this was an experience that one happily will forget. The valiant efforts by the waitresses were totally eclipsed by a singularly incompetent showing of the kitchen which in swift succession managed to produce a series of dishes unworthy of even the most modest of ambitions. It would be highly beneficial to all if management... More

First, let's give credit where credit is due. The service staff was very kind and friendly. But oh my, let's talk about the food. The caprese I ordered consisted of mediocre tasting tomatoes and low quality mozzarella. My main course was chicken breast with baked potatoes. The latter were poorly seasoned and not worth eating. The chicken breast was drowned... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time last weekend. I will start off by saying that the restaurant was very loud which made it very difficult to hear our waitress. Even asking for the 3rd time to repeat one of the specials, she just would not speak up. She just did not have a friendly disposition. Four of us... More

We ate at this restaurant a number of times last year and loved every meal. I went on Trip Advisor and gave it a great review. We ate there last night and was so disappointed with the entire experience. The service was slow and our waitress acted like she didn't want to wait on us. When we got our meals... More
