This place was freezing af! Hopefully they’re able to invest into some proper heaters for their patio. Other than that, food and drinks were good and the service was good too. Will go back on a warmer day.

I love ORETTA, we’ve come here frequently since they’ve opened. I completely understand how tough it is these times for servers and restaurants. We were seated in the alleyway where people were walking past with an inch of space from the walkway, even though there were plenty of open seats. I had people cough as they were walking by which was so scary during these times with my food inches away. Service also took a long time but I chalked it up to the fact that we were hidden in the alley not even in the area of the restaurant. Honestly so disappointed, I loved this restaurant but will not be going back for a while.

Although I specifically requested the dining area when I made the reservation online, we were first taken to the patio. It was a bit cold that night so we asked to switch and were taken to the back cafe area. It was quiet, dark and cold. We were told that there weren’t any other tables but the manager later brought over some complimentary Prosecco and apologized which was very nice of her. The charcuterie appetizer was great but the mains, gnocchi and steak were average. The service and drinks were great too.

Amid this pandemic, we were able to experience indoor dining again on my daughter’s birthday. COVID protocols were in place and despite it all, the dining experience was not rigid and the dining atmosphere and service was mindful but relaxed. We sampled a variety on the menu offerings and I must say, it was a good gustatory experience. I would like to go back again, when circumstances permit.

Our server was new but she was so nice and polite. Highly suggest to get the ragu pasta so good. Truffle butter pasta is okay just needs some salt. The atmosphere and staff is pleasant. Will return for sure.

We did the bottomless mimosa brunch menu. The food was tasty, breakfast items appeared very small but still filling. The bombalone was absolutely divine and those who ordered pasta said it was very tasty. I'd encourage going for the non-breakfast choices in the future. The reason why I'm giving it a good versus great, the mimosa's are pre-mixed. When we asked could we have our own orange juice to manage the balance ourselves, they said no, because they couldn't leave jugs on the table (COVID measure). Even though they'd left two water jugs on the table.They are slow to refill, we had 3 glasses in 2 hours. It's an expense measure and deliberate, we get it - but not bottomless.

It took close to 30mins to get our bill at the end, they were wrapping up the brunch sitting which I'm sure takes time, but we were left sitting there for a long time..

The food here is so mediocre. It is NOT worth your money. My friends and I shared a few appetizers and decided to leave because the food was something you would get at a food court. They didn’t even peel the beets in their beet salad. We ended up walking down the street to a different place for dinner. The place looks nice, but that’s about it. Service was great! If you’re looking for a good photo, this is the place. If you’re looking for a decent meal, look elsewhere.

The food was extremely greasy and oily. It’s very noisy, and the service is simply terrible. We waited for an average of 30 to 40 minutes for a drink. We were celebrating a birthday and asked for a candle. The server forgot. My advice: go somewhere else.

The server Dave charged extra for water when the order was just "water no ice".
He charged $7 for water when for everybody else's the same bottle of water was free. The management of the restaurant never got back to me when I left the complaint to the staff over the phone with my contact information as she promised.
I've been with my family and friends few times at this restaurant before and this "extra" charge for just water was a very unpleasant surprise. As well as a dismiss of our complaint. We don't want to comeback to this place anymore

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

Any star rating I have left, is purely for the food. The service at this restaurant is horrendous. From the moment we were seated to the moment our order was taken took a good 20 minutes, we weren’t even offered water at this time. Our food take an extra 40 minutes to arrive and as soon as it arrived, I wanted to ask for a steak knife to cut into my food, but that took another 15 minutes before I saw a random waitress as our own waitress was nowhere to be found. We were checked in on a whopping two times in a 2 hour stay. Restaurants should understand that when food delivery and take out is an option, customers who dine in are expecting an adequate service as well. Please tend to this horrible service at this restaurant.

Came for brunch with bottomless mimosas. Sat on the patio which was equipped with heaters and was adequately spaced out.
The pizza was absolutely delicious (got La Parma). I will say, our server did not quite keep up with the “bottomless” idea of the deal. I watched him refill the glasses of other tables and walk past ours. When he did come, and I asked him to fill to the top (due to his not so frequent check ins), I did receive (what I believed to be) a snarky remark and he refused to fill the glass more than half way. Our lattes also did not arrive, to which we had to ask our server for twice. Despite the less than ideal service, the food was delicious and the mimosa deal was well worth it. Would still recommend.

Not really worth the hype. Waited 20 mins to get seated when we had a reservation. Four other group got seated after us and all four finished their food before we got ours. Server was really nice but wasn’t attentive. There were times we needed refills and our bills and couldn’t see our server and had to ask two other servers to let our server know. Food was good but not amazing. Atmosphere was nice. Wouldn’t necessarily come back.

I made reservations and still had to wait 40 minutes for a table only to be seated at the back cafe/kitchen. We asked to be moved to the front, but told that it would be another hour wait. The food was decent, but service was poor.

Had a reservation but was placed to sit in cafe area on stools not ideal for 26th Annibersary dinner. Felt like I was eating at a lunch counter.
Service was very slow. Wine and ore dinner drinks arriving at same time - illogical. Sever did place wine in fridge until dinner but still did not make sense.
Food was excellent but expensive considering I eating in the back of the kitchen in lunch counter area.
