Had a great evening with female family at this wonderful, tucked into a neighborhood, spot. We were heading elsewhere and didn't want to "over order" as left overs in a car trunk that evening would not have been a good idea, so we did salads and appetizers. Next time we will try a pizza.

Salads were very fresh, but one person ordered her's and the staff heard us saying something about her being gluten and dairy free. Staff said there were a variety of cheeses in that order........somethInc not listed on the menu. Could have been a bad outcome. Menus should reflect the contents of the food item.

We also ordered the fried ravioli. Nothing special. One family member had a food brokerage for years and knew right away they were frozen and just heated when ordered. They might have been better received if they hadn't been over cook. So hard and crunchy you could hardly cut them.

A nice setting and great place for a visit, but we definitely did not order what I hope is the best on the menu.

This was my first time back to Onesto's in about 6 1/2 years, and the food was just as delicious as I remembered. Pizza is off the charts good and they serve delicious garlicky little bread balls as appetizers .

We were experiencing some beautiful weather and decided to try Onesto and sit outside. Didn't happen. Even with reservation the wait was going to be 45 min. We sat inside. I got excited about pineapple sangria. It shows up with no garnish...no fun little fruits on a toothpick. Tasted old. Not fresh and crisp.Ordered icetea....
No sweet n low....what? The restaurant ran out of spedini special at 7pm. Ordered baked cod special instead. Gross...polenta was yummy. Fish white and cold. Topping of cucumber salad and baby shrimp had a bland dressing. Baby shrimp looked all mushed up....like little tiny pieces of something pink and gross. Ordered cheese garlic bread. Not crunchy. Ordered tiramisu....another mistake. Nice sized piece but it was white on top not that yummy deep rich coffee chocolate color. Tasted like nothing...bland bland bland. Wanted espresso - this restaurant does not have espresso. No more Onesto for me!

We loved this cozy little neighborhood trattoria! The flatbread, lasagna and ravioli were delicious. My favorite was the homemade tiramisu. Our waiter was friendly and helpful and shared ideas for additional restaurants within walking distance to try while we stayed in the neighborhood.

Onesto's is a small Pizza and Trattoria located in the city's south side. Warm Italian atmosphere inside and nice patio outside for al fresco dining as the weather permits. Start your experience with one of their signature drinks or order off menu. When we were their they featured a Mango Sangria which looked wonderful, however, I went for a Bloody Mary and have to say it was one of the best in the area. Their dinner menu is varied offering a wide selection of sandwiches, pasta, pizza, and main dishes. They always have off menu specials and I recommend trying those. They have a vegetarian special which is roasted veggies stacked on a bed of risotto and garnished with a balsamic vinaigrette. My wife had the Mile High Roast Beef Sandwich with an Onesto Dinner Salad. Both very flavorful with the beef served with an au jus and a creamy horseradish sauce. Onesto's house salad dressing is a sweet Italian that satisfies but doesn't overpower leaving the salad greens tasting as if they were just freshly picked. We plan on going back soon to try one of their pizza's. The difficulty will be deciding which one as they all sound wonderful.
