Home made pasta and great menu. If you like Italian then you have to eat here. The restaurant payed lots of attention to my two children whom love Italian food. Nothing was too much trouble the waitress got my sons main course order wrong due to miss hearing my English accent but happily changed the meal ASAP. The wine selections... More

I hate writing bad reviews. This place does have a certain ambiance, and service was good. But the food was a huge letdown. Pasta was about 5 minutes past al dente. My husband's lasagne was oddly burnt. We ordered bruschetta, which was dry -- just bread with a few bits of tasteless tomato and no life or flavor to it.... More

From the owners to the waitstaff to the kitchen staff, this is a first class restaurant. The owners are from Italy. The chef is from Italy. They make their own pasta. Need I say more? Delicious appetizers, well thought out menu and select fresh products make this the #1 spot on Cape Cod. I would even place them above the... More

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
