We just recently visited this place for dinner. It was packed because of a graduation party, so to avoid waiting for a while, you had better make a reservation in advance, you never know.

We had a glass of their house wine and ordered soup, salad and a vegetarian pizza. Everything was simply delicious. I strongly recommend this place.

I traveled to Buffalo for the Marathon race, so after going to the race expo, was a looking for a pre-race pasta dinner. Immediately came upon Osteria and OMG, had the best spaghetti and meatballs I've ever had! Bread was fantastic, too. I have to make a special shout out to Cody, who served me from the bar. He asked my name, remembered who I am, was attentive, friendly, and courteous. I'd make the trip back to Buffalo just for the meal.

We attended the special Sunday Mother's Day buffet. We were immediately seated upstairs and had a corner table. I didn't enjoy having my back up against a wall because it was difficult to get out of the L-shaped wall area. Chairs being dragged along the floor made quite a bit of noise on their floors. Combination of warmth and industrial-like setting. Our server was phenomenal - attentive, polite, kind, genuine, and funny. I have to say he was the best part of the experience. Food was a bit of a mix with some great hits and some big fails but that is usually the case on a buffet of this size. There was a huge variety which was appreciated by our party of eight, especially considering the age range. French toast creme brulee was heavenly, had seconds! Everyone enjoyed their meatballs which should be no revelation since we learned they host a meatball contest called the Meatball Street Brawl.

Well prepared food in a comfortable friendly atmosphere. Our group of three are not pasta lovers so 2 of us opted for the fish, I had a small specialty pasta and a salad. We were delighted with everything. and the house wine was lovely.

Ordered vegetarian pizza and vegetarian ravioli. Food was ok but not overwhelming. Restrooms proper.
