We loved this place. Had a table of 10 and all had a great meal. Our server was excellent and detailed at explain the menu. Cute place, sat in the back and felt like I was eating at an Italian grandmas house. Warm and inviting. Comfortable and not stuffy at all.

I was reluctant to eat here because I heard bad things about the place: the food is average, service is slow and inefficient, the staff is not friendly, etc, etc. But friends who have eaten there on several occasions asked us to try it. I'm so glad that we did. The service was excellent and the wait staff could not... More

I made a reservation about 10 days ahead but when we arrived there were no "good" tables available. We were offered tiny cramped "tables for two" adjacent to the kitchen and in the bar, neither of which would have been comfortable in any way. We finally settled on a slightly bigger table which was in the direct path of cold... More

Our first experience at La Civetta a few years ago blew us away - the food was fabulous (authentic, but creative Italian), the service was gracious, the ambiance romantic. Subsequent visits disappointed - especially the service - but that first memorable visit draws us back to try again and again. The place is so popular and crowded now, it may... More

My daughter and I loved this place. We started with the cheese/salumi board and bruschetta. Then had the homemade tortolini verde and bolognase and finished with a delicious chocolate dessert. I just wish the resteraunt wasn't cold. I left my jacket on the entire time.

average tasting food and high price tags...The potato and leek soup was mediocre at best(very watery), the pasta bolognese was average and small portioned, the appetizers were tasteless, the pork chop was served in a cream sauce...ugh This chef is a NYC wannabe but that will never happen...he needs to go back to cooking school.

Delicious meal on Friday night. Beautifully prepared Italian food in romantic surroundings. Way better than anything available in North End, Boston.

I've been here a couple of time this year and I really enjoyed Osteria La Civetta, the atmosphere is funky and the food is really good.

This may well be the best Italian restaurant on Cape Cod. Authentic cuisine, interior design and well trained and friendly staff. Personal attention is given to guests by the young Italian restaurant owners, making you feel welcome and well cared for. The food is spectacular.
