    Excellent, Vibrant and fresh Italian Cuisine with a contemporary atmosphere and waterfront setting. Lunch two plate (antipasti-entree) special for 25 is worth the trip! Great wine selection !

    Pastry chef Alex Levin has established the Navy Yard Italian haunt as the place to go for dessert. Charcuterie dishes and Italian cocktails are also worth exploring here. Read more

    A 30-something mom wearing a BabyBjorn fits in as easily as the businessman sipping a cocktail. Floor-to-ceiling windows the waterfront, while more than a dozen homemade pastas make sharing a must. Read more

    They know how to work a grill here! So along with your pasta, get the Grigliata Mista: lamb chop, skirt steak, sausage, pancetta, and marinated peppers.

    This place is truly a delight! Homemade pasta, excellent cheese patters, and amazing view. Gnocchi here is far the best choice on the menu.

    The Bitches say: B+. Osteria Morini is a classic, hearty Italian spot in an upscale environment. It’s perfect for family parties or a date on the waterfront. Don’t miss the Burrata and the Battilardo! Read more

    Loved the pasta! A relative ordered the ribeye which didn't live up to expectations however.

    I love the two course salad and pasta pairing for lunch by the river. Great escape from the work day! (The panzanella is amazing.)

    Brunch was unbelievable! Great drinks eclipsed by the fabulous fare! Prosciutto panino, poached eggs, and ricotta pancakes were to die for! Be sure to have the roasted fingerling potatoes!!

    A seriously worthy place to splurge on carbs. Bread is amaze. Meatballs are moist and tender. Pasta is extremely fresh. Parmigiano Gelato = I've died and gone to heaven.

    Of course the pasta here is amazing. Get the Rigatoni: braised wild mushrooms, rosemary oil, parmigiano.

    The pasta here is delicious. They have nice outdoor seating. I had an ice cream with espresso and a cookie dessert that was quite good.

    Everything, one of the best Italian meals I have ever had. Only downside is it's extremely expensive.

    If you can make it to dessert, try the riso. Perfect blend of flavors, light, and a wonderful way to end the meal.

    The tagliatelle is superb. Also, the bucatini if you're looking for a lighter dish. Guests are encouraged to share plates!

    The highlight here are definitely the homemade pastas. Crostini are delicious too especially the parmigiano "gelato." Cocktails good but overpriced.

    A little disappointed. Wine by the glass on the high side, service was a little off, and menu online was not accurate and flavor weren't anything special. I felt like I was overpaying.

    Food is fine, but brutally cold, unfriendly hostess who rushed us out b/c we 'didn't have a reservation.' Didn't know that was a crime these days.
