Non un ottima organizzazione a livello prenotazioni, Avevo riservato un tavolo alle 8.30pm, quando sono arrivato c’erano circa altre 8 coppie in attesa del tavolo delle 8.30pm alla fine sono riuscito a sedermi al tavolo alle 9.30 quindi un ora di ritardò nonostante la mia prenotazione, per il resto è un bellissimo locale e il cibo è buono, poche accortezze riguardo Covid situazione ma credo sia una situazione nuova per tutti...
Da riprovare quando tutto sarà più tranquillo

Monday night at Oretta is the best! The Aperitivo menu is the best deal out there, and half priced bottles of wine. Me and my friends had a blast!
Only issue was our server was super slow to bring us our bill - 20-30 mins - and considering how cold it was outside at that point we got annoyed.

All in all though great time!

The food at the restaurant was very good. The service was very poor. Not sure if it was a one off particular incident or they are regularly like that but the restaurant was understaffed and we were constantly trying to grab one of the waiters to get us something.
To top it all off, while we were eating the fire alarm went off for about 10-15 mins. Nobody informed us about what we were supposed to do! none of the staff came to reassure us that it is nothing; however, we remained seated because we hadn't paid our bill. We realized there was nothing going on until the fire trucks came and turned off the alarm. Overall, not a great experience.

I dislike when restaurants tell you that the prime seating area (street patio) is all booked, yet there are empty tables when you arrive and leave, and you are put in a lesser location. I will be sure to specify prime patio seat every time i book in the future.

First time visiting. We did the brunch special w/ bottomless mimosas for 45$ ! They did NOT lie when they advertised "bottomless". The servers were soo quick and attentive that I genuinely did not see the bottom of my mimosa glass until last call. We never even had to ASK for a refill, someone was just somehow always refilling mimosas lol.

My friend and I both had pizzas and the pistachio donut thing. Food was amazing too and overall value and ambience of Oretta was amazing.

We will be back!!

Would not recommend. We got sat at the side patio, not even on the patio in the middle of a court yard to a condo. We had a lone table near the propane tanks and staff entrance. We asked if possible to move they had told us no that they were full booked (at one point the only had 3 tables occupied on the side patio). They finally moved us onto the patio within the last 15mins. of our stay. I would not recommend. I wish I would have saved money and just ordered takeout in my own condos courtyard then being placed at a random table in another condos courtyard...

Too noisy and too crowded. Our waiter didn’t ask us if we wanted drinks, which we ordered when a manager brought us our appetizers. We found that very unusual. We were told of 1.5hr time limit. We were there for almost 2.5hrs. due to the fact that our waiter was very inattentive.
Will not be going back to waste my time or money.

We made reservations at ORETTA for cocktails and aperitifs. I wish that we had stayed for dinner. The aperitifs were so delicious. I would highly recommend the Polpette, pizzetta margherita, spiedini dagnello, calamari fritti and the prosciutto, cacciatore, parmigiano.
The prices were very reasonable for the portion size. Great service, very friendly staff.

Oretta is such a beautiful restaurant! The food was so delicious! Our server was also the bartender so it was difficult to get her attention if we need anything. We waited for 15 minutes to just order an espresso and did not get a dessert selection. Perhaps they need to hire more servers or allocate the current servers in better sections.

Thank you,

One of the worst experiences I’ve had at a restaurant. Most of our food came out cold and the service was incredibly slow, we ended up being at the restaurant for 3.5 hours because it took so long to be served.

We chose Oretta for our son in law’s birthday. It was bad from the start. We got brunch menus at dinner. They would not do the Italian tasting dinner unless the whole table had it even though she strongly promoted it when we sat down. The food was salty. The desserts were the only truly enjoyable part of the dinner.

When I booked this reservation I stated that it was Steve’s birthday and to please make it special. He wasn’t even acknowledged. Everyone else was getting their Happy Birthday cake and candles but not Steve

I’m pretty disappointed and probably won’t be recommending this place for a birthday celebration.
There are plenty of nice restaurants out there that would be more than happy to acknowledge someone’s birthday

Food was very delicious (brunch). However, the service was okay. Guess we sat in a “closed” section because the server was very busy with other tables. She totally forgot about us for the most part. Although it was my first experienced with Oretta, and it wasn’t the greatest, I would definitely come back and give it a second try.

Server took a very long time to take our orders, get our drinks, serve our food, and bring our bills. We had to wait on average 10-15 mins for anything (ordering, asking for the bill, waiting to pay, etc). She never stopped by to ask if we needed anything (we wanted to order more drinks and we couldn’t). It was disappointing because we really like ORETTA :(
