“Hidden Gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

This great little Italian may not look like much from outside but the inside is very different. The quaint odd interior perfectly matches the atmosphere, it's quiet except for the sound of diners chattering, and music at the perfect volume. The food is excellent with a wide variety to choose from. The staff are pleasant and the fact it is in walking distance only makes it even better. My only complaint is that it could open earlier!

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We were searching for a restaurant nearby and came across this on tripadvisor, and made a reservation soon after.

At first glance based on exterior finish it seems like the restaurant has been around for quite some time, which is a good thing.

There was a warm welcome and we were shown to our table instantly, and within two minutes fresh bread served to us.

The menu was just the right size, with lots of authentic Italian dishes on offer, all priced reasonably. There are also specials for the day in a small section which was good.

With the menu, and the fact that a few diners were turned away due to the restaurant being at full capacity, it seems like Ortenzi have got the formula just right!

One thing I was pleased to see was the fact that they do not serve chips, it's simply your main with a selection of fresh vegetables or a salad.

Flavours were hearty, authentic and simply delicious! It was our first visit to the restaurant and certainly won't be our last...

“Regular diners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

This restaurant is absolutely perfect for us, being within walking distance of our home and having a good atmosphere with excellent food. We visit regularly and have done so for many years. I am still waiting for a good reason to complain!

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I had already dined at Ortenzi a few years ago, but somehow had no opportunity to visit again until this October - Eastcote is close to where we live but a bit out of the way.

We expected a very nice dinner and we were not disappointed; if anything, the atmosphere (very quiet, no loud music, good for a nice conversation) and the food were even better than we remembered.

We had ham and melon and a bruschetta for starters, then veal with marsala and saltimbocca alla romana - agein a veal escalope with ham. Deliciously cooked, very tasty. For dessert, oranges in some kind of liqueur (I can't remember exactly what) and a slice of cake, followed by coffees. For drinks, red wine and a beer.

Value for money, exceptional - just under £ 48. And the service was impeccable: attentive, fast, discreet. We will not let so much time elapse before our next visit!

“A surprising gem hidden away in Eastcote”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This little italian restaurant has it all. We were given good service and an excellent choice of food which all looked good on the menu. I had a hake fillet which was one of the best fish dishes I've ever had and my wife had a simple dish of spaghetti with clams. We followed up with mouth watering desserts, tiramisu for me and lemon cheesecake for my wife. All in all, proper italian food with no fuss and a reasonable price.
