Let's make no secret of it: this was an experience that one happily will forget. The valiant efforts by the waitresses were totally eclipsed by a singularly incompetent showing of the kitchen which in swift succession managed to produce a series of dishes unworthy of even the most modest of ambitions. It would be highly beneficial to all if management... More

First, let's give credit where credit is due. The service staff was very kind and friendly. But oh my, let's talk about the food. The caprese I ordered consisted of mediocre tasting tomatoes and low quality mozzarella. My main course was chicken breast with baked potatoes. The latter were poorly seasoned and not worth eating. The chicken breast was drowned... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time last weekend. I will start off by saying that the restaurant was very loud which made it very difficult to hear our waitress. Even asking for the 3rd time to repeat one of the specials, she just would not speak up. She just did not have a friendly disposition. Four of us... More

We ate at this restaurant a number of times last year and loved every meal. I went on Trip Advisor and gave it a great review. We ate there last night and was so disappointed with the entire experience. The service was slow and our waitress acted like she didn't want to wait on us. When we got our meals... More

We read the menu online and decided this was the place for us.....authentic Italian dishes and homemade pasta! It did not disappoint....everything was delicious. We sat outside, which was nice for people-watching. The bread from Maison Villatte was perfect with EVOO. We enjoyed the grilled octopus starter but would have liked it better without the breadcrumbs. Our other starter was... More

Walking through the town of Falmouth we met a couple who suggested Osteria La Civetta. My husband and I decided to try it and we were not disappointed. The pasta is homemade and perfectly cooked. My main meal was delicious. The staff was friendly and made suggestions. Good variety of food and desserts.
