The service was good, and we enjoyed our dinner! Definitely recommend it
Food is delicious!
I will definitely be coming back to Oretta to try out more food and drinks. The place is beautiful and the service was amazing!
The food was great and the outdoor patio is beautiful. The service was good overall but I found that the server was not that friendly or attentive.
Best patio and restaurant in Toronto, the food was delicious and the drink choice is outstanding... Highly recommend for some week night fun.
Lunch was lovely. Ordered burrata and branzino, both were great. Patio was very pleasant, service was outstanding. Highly recommend.
Your managers need to be more polite to their guests.
Ate at Oretta on the patio this week. I ended up having the panzella salad and chicken on the side. Was really unimpressed with the salad - there was probably one whole tomato chopped up along with a few slices of cucumber. It was really sad and I was starving afterwards. The server was heard inside complaining about his tables that they were awkward. Will not be going back.
Delicious pizza, smiling staff, and a great happy hour menu (weekdays only!)
We were so excited to see that the bottomless mimosa brunch special had made it's return!
Even better to see a lot of the same staff still there.
Food is still delicious as always; I'm a sucker for their pizzas but their burger is amazing as well.
Loss of 1 star for ambiance; we keep getting sat in the back near the kitchen and would love to eventually be sat more towards the front :)
We went for a later night reservation. Instead of being seated on their actual patio in front of the restaurant , we were seated in the alley cafe. Not cool at all. We have been customers for years , and thought it was very rude to be seated there if our reservation was for the actual restaurant. We had drinks and then didn’t bother to have. Dinner. Be ware of the alley seating and the ambiance of stupid seeing the lines of Lavelle.
The girls and I opted for bottomless mimosas which was so fun! The food was delicious and the server, along with the rest of the staff, was lovely.
Food was great but I did find a weird piece of white plastic in two of the dishes. Otherwise everything was pretty good. Washrooms were unkept though.
I’m a fan of ORETTA. Great food and service. Was not happy with patio seating. I felt that tables were too close. Not enough social distancing. Would have preferred to sit indoors but I was not offered that choice.
Great food...didn’t like sitting on King Street...not in the Patio zone...Directly on the sidewalk
Second time here and it has got to be a new fave restaurant for me. I am obsessed with the calamari and the happy hour menu. The service is great and the waiters are nice. I definitely recommend Oretta.
I've ordered pasta with baby shrimps, and it was delicious. The staff was friendly and polite. The patio is not bad, but I wasn't impressed. Overall it was good.
Lovely start with the scanning of the menus, sanitizer and table ready right away. We were approached right away. After that it kind of fell flat. We asked our server between the 3 rosès which one they would recommend. The wine was lovely, but they brought a different bottle because they were out which was more expensive than our original...,but didn’t let us know. We ordered apps and mains. They didn’t have the salad I wanted, no biggie, said I’d pick something else, but they didn’t come back to take that order until my friend finished her main. I ordered anyways. 2 minutes later they didn’t have that dish either. We were already there for an hour and finished our wine so I just ate my meatballs and left. I was so excited to try some food too!!! So I went for dinner and didn’t get to eat dinner :(
The food was amazing as per usual. We went during Aperitivo Hour so the value of food was great for those of us who wanted a little bit of everything. We were celebrating an engagement and out server Nadal was really nice and funny.
The patio is well designed and very comfortable. The servers were exceptional and great ambiance had a great evening!
Had a very lovely birthday dinner. Food and service were both excellent. Party had octopus, calamari, burata, polpete as apps and truffled linguine, branzino, margarita pizza and gnocchi for mains. Everyone was outstanding and we would order all again. Only suggestion for improvement would be some lighting and ambient music on patio which can’t be too difficult to rig up. - even candles on tables would have helped. Definitely recommend.
I’ve been to Aretta a few times, and the food has usually been amazing. This time wasn’t as good, the salads were really small and did not seem the freshest. Of course I would go back because their food truly is usually amazing, but this time was a miss.
Food is cooked with too much oil to the point its dripping and not eatable.
Price point is ok for food but drinks are way to expense for the quality.
Hard to get food or drinks ordered... worst service I have experienced in Toronto service wise.
Mu wife and I went to Oretta for our anniversary.
The Oretta staff were super friendly and courteous.
The Chef send out a couple of delicious appetizers with real truffle shavings on the house ... no complaints about that!
I'd love to go back and enjoy Oretta during a non-covid time.
P.S. - the pistachio tiramisu is to die for!
I thought the food wasn’t worth the price tag. It wasn’t as flavourful as I hoped and I found the options (both food and drink) limited.
I would not go back because there are other restaurants with much better food at that price point.
Terrible experience. We had an umbrella flew off the stand and landed right by my ankle. It almost hit me and the staff was standing inside staring at our table. The table beside us blocked it before it hit me otherwise it would have hit right through my leg. The manager did nothing to apologize but to offer is two pastries!!!! Terribleeeee experience! Never going back.
Very good food! Lovely atmosphere! Digital menu could use work.
Anistasio was great! Food was superb
We sat outside on the patio and it was actually really nice! Quiet and down the alleyway - away from the noise/traffic on King. The service was great, and they had set up a good flow given the Covid situation to avoid too much movement between the tables at once.
The food was excellent - we did not have a bad dish and even ordered dessert (which is rare as I do not have a sweet tooth, but it was delicious!). We will definitely be back again.
Great waitress. Great food. The 2 hour limit on the patio is understandable but prevented us from have dessert.
Loved the new patio! Food always great here
Amazing quality, food, service. $7-9 items for happy hour and it was quality. Highly recommend.
The seating was not good at all. The tables and chairs were wobbly. My pasta was cold. My pepsi was watery. Overly priced for this kind of service
Asked to be seated on the king st patio in the reservation and we were seated in the side alley, at the end of the alley. Waited 40 minutes to be seated on the king st patio but once we were re seated it was great!
Had a great experience - and we felt safe (social distancing on the patio) our Server Anesti made our experience even better. Oretta will definitely see us again soon.
Great afternoon outing for our girls day. Patio seating was spaced, noise was moderate because of the cars passing, and everything came out timely. Overall great experience and will be back for their happy hour!
Our server was absolutely wonderful! Food was delicious.
The patio was too crowded. Didn't feel comfortable as there as the tables weren't spaced enough. Overall an ok experience. Nothing great
Due to covid there is only patio seating available. Typically I am fine with this but at Oretta they have some patio seating down an ally way which took away from the ambiance. The food was tasty and good value.
