Everything was perfect except for the reception my daughter received when she arrived with an infant and a toddler. Please advise your hosts to be more respectful of ppl with children.
Thanks.

Had a great dinner however we were basically on top of the tables next to us. If your wanted to be distanced a bit from others this isn’t the restaurant for you.

The Bruccheta was disappointing. Not enough meet and the cream was not very tasty. The pizzas were good but was lacking a little more garniture.

There was some mix-up with our order last night but the new manager and her staff fixed this in an extremely generous fashion. We felt taken care of in a very unique way that I have not experienced in other restaurants.

Overall Oretta has fantastic food, is a beautiful space and the noise level (it is a busy place) adds to its charming atmosphere. Reminds me of the Cafe Houses in Vienna.

Amazing food and service! It has such a nice vibe. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and requested they bring a happy birthday celebration with dessert and they did exactly that without me having to remind them.

We ate out of the cheese bowl .. soooo good

Nice ambiance and excellent food. Very small portions and slow service. Oretta is very expensive, and overall experience did not match up to the price.

The restaurant was beautiful. Been wanting to come here for a while and happy I did. Didn’t realize the mimosas were no longer bottomless so I was disappointed about that. Didn’t feel I got my moneys worth for that reason. But our server was very patient with us and polite. It was a great first experience

Dave and the others were very polite. Ensured our waters were topped up and that the food was up to their standard. The avocado toast was delicious however, it could’ve been better with a-bit of spice (sriracha). The value was pretty good for what you get, would recommend for a nice brunch.

The food, drinks and coffee are delicious! The server was incredible. The place was packed and I never once felt like I needed to call my waiter’s attention because she was always making sure we were okay. The locale is gorgeous and everything was tasty! I do recommend you make a reservation beforehand because it tends to be full.

So much fun. Beautiful space, great energy, and perfect service. Food is exactly what you want from a beautiful Italian place. Wines are generally too young, but the cocktails are perfect.

We’ve enjoyed Aperetivo hours at Oretta a few times now. The service is always amazing, and everyone on staff are so nice and welcoming. Plus, I love the outfits the women wear. Very cute! The food and drinks are always wonderful, and such a great deal! I tried a Negroni Bianco last night, and it was delicious! I’ve recommended to many friends that they check it out!

My experience at Oretta was under my expectation. I was not impressed at all with the food !we ordered Bruschetta , Risotto and Octopus and sea bass. The bruschetta was not bad, the risotto was super oily and tasteless and the octopus was not tender and cold, the sea bass was ok.
