Great place for your kids BIRTHDAY 6/23/2010

The place is a throw back to a Victorien era with its lamps and booth seating not to mention the railway car. The pasta is good (a 7 out of 10) the servings are big and the choice of toppings is yours; I like the Managers Speacial Half Rich Meat Sauce and Half Brown Butter with Mitz Chesse (the chesse they mix there). I use to go to the one at Jack London Square but it's gone so I drive from Alameda Island to Concord and its worth it. Pros: Always Friendly Atmosphere Cons: Can get very very Busy more

I really enjoy coming here. Its not anything different though, its like any other mainstream italian place. However, the atmosphere is really cute and nice. The bread sticks are a must, they are what makes the meal worthwhile. Since I'm a vegetarian I'm really limited to a few of their pastas. However, their stuffed pastas are really flavorful and filling. more

I went here for my mother in law's birthday.First of all I slipped twice on apperently nothing on the floor. I felt like I pulled my groin the next day. The food was only mediocore for the price they charge. I could have made it better. However the desert was to die for. more

Service is hit and miss (14-16 year old bussboys). Watered down spaghetti is ok for kids, but wouldn't go there w/just me/wife. more

Family Atmosphere... One Of My Favorite Places To Eat 11/27/2007

I have had bad service from here before, but not so bad that it tainted my opinion of the place, I felt the other reviews were a bit harsh. One guy said it took him 20 minutes to get his food... Well I have to say 20 Minutes is fair timing for an extreamly busy italian resturant!!! I think the prices are fair. You get Salad, a never ending supply of Fresh Baked Bread with both Garlic Butter and Regular your Entree and then Ice cream at the end for dessert. All of this for an average price of $9.50 per person... I like this place and will forever be a patron. Pros: Yummy But Nothing Fancy Just the Right Kind Of Atmosphere For A Family Cons: Sometimes ca be a long wait time to eat dinner... more

Cheap, but not worth it - rather eat take out pizza! 12/19/2006

The last time I went to OSF was 5+ years ago and my memory of it wasn't so great. I remember it being not all that delicious. But, I was in town and some friends decided to give it a try again. We should have stuck to my gut instinct from my previous experience! Definitely not a recommended place! I ordered the baked lasagna, my friends - ravioli and spaghetti. The main course took FOREVER to come. 20 minutes from the time we got our salads. During these 20 minutes, we also got 3 different servers! Unheard of! 3 different servers and no food! By the time our food came, we were already tired of waiting. The food was bland and there was nothing special about it. Not worth waiting 20 minutes for. My ""baked"" lasagna didn't seem baked at all. Just layers of pasta thrown together with sauce. No melting, hard cheese on top, which is the best part of the lasagna! Definitely disappointed and would never go back...ever again. Pros: Big portions Cons: Long wait, bland taste more

Big on size, not so on taste 6/8/2006

I've tasted better pastas in restaurants not even specializing in Italian fare or pasta. The taste is not exceptional but it's ok as pasta goes. The only positive point I experienced was that the servings are quite large. Enough to fill you up and then bring home for another meal. Reception varies depending on who's at the reception desk. No problems with service. Seating usually is not a problem because the place is big. Ambiance-wise, the railroad theme tables and chairs is interesting at first but the novelty wears off after subsequent visits. Pros: Good for a group setting, pasta is not bad, serving size is huge Cons: Not fine dining pasta taste more
