Not Impressed

Went with my wife for our anniversary. Do yourselves a favor and try another restaurant. Ordered the Chicken Parm. Sauce was runny and watery, chicken was overcooked. Our waitress was quite rude. Never cracked a smile the entire time, the few times she checked on us. Only positive was a good bottle of wine and there was no wait for a I know why.

don't bother

The first time it was ok. The mussels appetizer with tomato sauce was pretty good. I had linguine with clams in a white wine sauce which was pretty good but they give you much too much. My friend liked his spaghetti and meatballs. The second time the mussels were not as good and I had linguine with calamari as the entree. The calamari were overcooked and again the portions are much too large. I was disappointed ... view more

Truly disappointing

Despite a reservation we had to wait 45 minutes, and when we did sit down and they took our orders, they forgot to bring out bread or salads, didn't give us water and the entrees we got would have been easily shown up by Olive Garden.

Simply average

Was recently there for dinner during St Anthong's feast. Though it was a busy night, we only had to wait for 5 minutes for a table which I though was pretty good considering it was a busy evening. Was immediatley taken back however by the rude waitstaff. Seemed to be some fighting amongst the staff of who should be clearing the tables ect. Had to ask twice for water and clean silverware. Ordered lasagna and it was ... view more

Extremely Rude Staff

I walked by this place today to witness one of the staff cursing out a young girl for using their outdoor garbage cans. She was alone and had a small dog with her (so I'm guessing what she was throwing out). Anyhow, I would much rather she clean it up than me step in it and if this man really didn't want her using that particular trash receptacle he could have asked/told her politely that it is for the businesses use... view more

The menu at Losteria has something to please everyone. Obviously family owned and everyone there cares deeply that the customer is satisfied. We have been on every visit!! The service was exceptional, the food always excellent. Some menus have 6-8 appetizers and 10 - 12 entrees to choose from. This menu is not at all limiting, with something to please everyone. Pasta's, seafood, chicken, veal, beef!! You name it, the... view more

Are they serious?

We had a reservation. Despite the fact that we arrived 15 minutes early they informed us there would be a wait. 45 minutes later, (1 hour counting our early 15 minutes) we were finally seated. Our waitress was very nice but she clearly had to many tables as we only saw her when she took the order and when she dropped the check. The food wasn't that good, bland and warm as if it was sitting in a plate and then heated.... view more

Family Run is not always a good thing.

L'Osteria has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. We've put up with long waits and inconsistent service for years because the food in very good ""red sauce"" Italian. But lately the service and management has crossed the line from mediocre to absolutely terrible. Last time we went, we got our food and one of the entrees was cold. It was nearly impossible to get our waitress' attention, we waved at her... view more

Delicious classic italian entrees

This is a great place to go for a casual, fun North End dinner with family or friends. It is also my favorite for delicious, classic italian entrees. I have been there on several weeknights, and found the service to be very good. I have had the chicken saltimbocca and marsala, and found that both of these dishes were perfect!! The atmosphere is very nice and simple, with white tableclothes and candles. The noise... view more
