Good food

This restaurant was a great surprise. There are not a lot of good restaurants in and around Hanover . It's quite small but can they can pack them in. It's got great food from pizza to great meals. Parking in front and down back. I have been back a couple of times.

This was our third try at Orta in the last couple of years. Unfortunately, it has not changed. My friend made a reservation a week in advance, specifically asking for a table in an alcove away from the crowded, tight dining room. We were seated next to the kitchen while there were an abundance of tables available. When questioned the... More

We had a private function here last week The whole thing from beginning to end was a breeze as Cara Williams made great (and not expensive) food selections, took care of mounting photos, music, flowers, etc.. The appetizers were terrific as were the entrees ( everyone was drooling over the cod) The staff was most friendly and very attentive. This... More

Orta restaurant in pembroke,ma continues to fine tune things and we just had a top notch dining experience. We love watching the brick oven operation - but didn't order pizza (they looked amazing). They have realigned their table configuration affording more space between tables and better flow. The salads were outstanding. Beet salad for my husband and spring greens salad... More

The only thing that marks Orta from the street are two huge urns filled with seasonal plants. The interior is suitably dark to be cozy. The kitchen is open but quiet. The wine list is imaginative. The food is imaginative but recognizable. Service is unobtrusively excellent. Foods we sampled and shared. Every dish looks so good and tastes so good... More

Good food but pricy. I would give them an other try we have not been for years because we try different places for special occasions.

I thought the restaurant was overrated based on all of the other reviews I had read. The food was mediocre at best. The service was not that great. I thought it was expensive for what you got. I was not impressed and will probably not go back there again.

There is nothing better than finding a new restaurant in your area that is simply fantastic! We enjoyed cocktails, appetizers (lobster risotto cakes) and entrees (rigatoni Bolognese and lobster raviolis) and everything was perfect. The service was professional and the atmosphere relaxing. The bar looked nice and we will make sure to spend some time there on our next visit.

Very good restaurant serving Italian specialties including Rigatoni Bolognese. I would classify this as a quiet restaurant that's also good for families. I like the fact that the bar is in the back and not visible from the main dining section. The food is well prepared. Our friend ordered the Bolognese and wasn't disappointed. My pan seared salmon was delicious,... More

We just 'discovered' this restaurant which has been around for about five years. I thought it was a pizza joint - boy was I wrong! From the moment we walked in everything was perfect. We were greeted with a smile and immediately taken to our table. Our server, Joey, was helpful and made great recommendations and seemed to appear when... More
