“Delicious brunch and excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Yum! Can't wait to go back time and time again to work through their entire menu. I met a friend for brunch and both our meals were excellent. I had whipped yohurt and granola with poached fruit which sounds unassuming but it was totally delicious and I was left feeling satisfied after arriving ravaneous. Coffee was hot and strong, just how I like it. Service was really excellent - attentive and anticipated everything needed to ensure a perfect dining experience. I can't imagine anyone leaving Ortolana disappointed. If you are thinking of going stop thinking and just go!

“Excellent service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had the gnocchetti with poached egg and the chilli salsiccia with fried egg and mozzarella. It was delicious! The atmosphere and decor of the restaurant is also fabulous and well thought-out. Excellent service.

“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!
