Moderately priced food but has the taste of elegance. the bread is fresh and warm, the dip is savory and tasteful. Portion sizes are a size so you can eat all three courses, medium but not too large. Service was professional and helpful. Even when the restaurant was busy, waiter was attentive. Would definitely visit again.

I HATE Osteria Via Stato!!!! Because they are so great, they have made eating in any other Italian restaurant average. Seriously, we were treated like royalty and the food… well like I said, it is second to none.

We've been to Osteria Via Stato a couple of times now and have found the food, while not what I'd call adventurous, to be very consistently good. Outstanding starter this time with the veal meatballs! I enjoyed my oxtail ravioli very much and our server was informative and attentive. Plenty of large groups were in the restaurant but it didn't... More

It was my 17 year old son's first taste of calzone and veal meetballs. He loved both and commented he wished his Italian father was with him to share the crusty bread. Honestly, I couldn't believe ho much he ate. He even commented the chicken soup was really good, and he's not so much of a soup eater.

We had a special chefs menu for Valentines night and it was delicious! We especially enjoyed the meatballs appetizer, salmon entre, and the beef tenderloin! Service was great and we enjoyed the ambiance.

I had my wedding dinner at Osteria Via Stato. The food was delicious and the service was phenomenal. I wish I could do it all over it again. It was a great experience.

Honestly, this restaurant blew us away. Our waiter was extremely helpful and knowledgable and we enjoyed every last bite of our dinners.
