“Great Setting, Nice Drinks Menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Bunch of friends and I stopped here for a pre-dinner drink and were treated very well. We sat outside with the heaters on and it was just lovely. Atmosphere was beautiful. We were quite a large group so dominated the outside, I would suggest this is probably more of a place for intimate dining though.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

Popped in for a quick bite to eat with a friend on Friday night. Staff were super helpful and friendly. We both ended up ordering the gnocchi which was beautiful! I can't wait to try the rest if the menu!

“What a breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Never have I experienced such a breakfast! Not your usual eggs and bacon, etc, but truly gourmet combinations which were amazing. Genuinely friendly service, generous serves and great value. Wish we were staying longer to sample their lunch. Highly recommended!

“Great lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I had lunch with a couple of friends at Ortolana the other day. The food is excellent.
I didn't find it noisy at all. The restaurant was full when we arrived as you can't book. It was a fine but brisk day and while Ok outside , it didn't take long to be seated inside. The service was terrific. We will be back
