Orofino is our favorite place to go on both couple and family dates. The restaurant and it’s facilities are always extremely clean, staff are always polite, and the food is incomparable.

The pizzas were delicious, really done authentic italian-style, with fresh mozarela and basil leaves and ingredients such as thin sliced Parmesan, prosciutto, wild mushrooms. Far from the greasy version you have so many times in American restaurants. For appetizer we had calamari and they were quite good too. I regret not having any room left to try the cannoli in the end. Hope to be back.

Nice place, didn't live up to the hype from friends. Nice place I'd go there again, but not my first choice in Fredericksburg's dinning scene.

Went here for a late lunch to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was a great choice. Nice house wine selection, as well as cocktails. I had the house Montepulciano red, and my wife a Prosecco cocktail. We started with the Trio Bruschetta, the cherry tomato & basil being the best one. My wife had the al pomodoro lunch box, which was very good. I had the Toscano special (sliced NY strip on Ciabatta bread) with fries. The sandwich was good....the fries were excellent. The menu looks great, and it's a nice place. And our server, Jefferson, did a great job and was attentive. We'll definitely go back and try the dinner menu and sit outside in the nice courtyard area.

First time there. Our waiter appeared to be in training. There was a large group near us and it was very loud. The ambiance is too modern. Wish the interior had the feel that the outdoor seating area gives, rustic old world Italy. Appetizers and dinner were amazing. Portions are large. You get your money's worth. Desserts were ok, nothing special. The pinot Grigio was really good, we got a second bottle to go home.

We dined at Orofino while on a recent fall road trip. A very nice find. The atmosphere was cozy and relaxing and the staff were very attentive. And the food was excellent. I had Bucatini and my wife had eggplant. Both expertly prepared. We would dine here again!

Unfortunately COVID has caused the quality of the food and service to go down significantly. $10 starter salads came out untossed, with 3 ingredients on top. Mains were underwhelming and visually unappetizing (truffle pasta that looked like a pile of soggy straw and dry salmon on top of 6 potatoes). For an Italian restaurant there were barely any wines, and the server lacked knowledge on the few that were available. Front seating room is cold and uninviting, with minimal decorations and the hardest wooden seats.

The food was delicious and the service was outstanding. This restaurant is a gem in the middle of Fredericksburg. It’s a family atmosphere yet at the same time an elegant interior and atmosphere.
We highly recommend Orofino!

I feel like I had just had breakfast, but still wanted to keep my reservation for lunch at Orofino. My meal was very good, especially my salad, and I was happy to eat Tagliatale (due to food allergy, it's not often that I can have it)! I do wish I could have sat in the opposite corner by the decorative book shelving. Maybe the diner that arrived and sat there later had particularly reserved it, but that was my only disappointment.

Fabulous service, ambiance, and food! The brick courtyard area is extremely romantic, the food was amazing-we had appetizers, soup, pasta, and dessert. Everything was extremely flavorful! The noise level was good for lunch! Our server was great without being obtrusive and the manager checked on us. We will be back! Prices were amazing-couldn’t have eaten fast food for price!
