The server Dave charged extra for water when the order was just "water no ice". He charged $7 for still water. The management of the restaurant never got back to me when I left the complaint to he host over the phone with my contact...information. I've been with my family and friends few times at this restaurant and this "extra" charge for just water was a very unpleasant surprise. We don't want to comeback to this place anymore.More

They sat us on the patio. When the temperature started to drop they put a heater by our table. Anthony was very accommodating. The right amount of checking in. We took a bunch of shareable appetizers instead of a main. Wine by the glass was...reasonable and the food was very tasty. It's a nice place and they really did everything they could to keep the patio people comfortable. I would suggest this restaurant!More

Attempted to have lunch at this beautiful place, unfortunately host staff are very rude and arrogant. This has happened twice before and the same level of arrogant service

Arranged for take-out/pick-up from Oretta this evening, during the COVID-19 time where restaurant seating is closed and need our support. Oretta did very well! Placed our order online, and advised of a time that it would be ready. Arrived at that time, through the side...door down the walk, and it was all boxed/bagged and ready to go. Annette was wonderful - very kind and welcoming, with nothing being too much trouble. She noted that a couple small blueberry tart desserts were added to the bag, but another treat of pistachio ricotta cheesecake in the display caught my eye, so had to have that packed up too! Annette was so wonderful in putting this into a nice box, with a nice thank you in supporting of the business in this difficult time. The smell of the food in the car was intoxicating, of the boar ragu and mushroom raviolli. The two mains tasted even better, when at home with an Italian bottle of red. The cheesecake and blueberry tarts, too! Yum!! I've been to Oretta a couple times before, but this meal was by far the best! I look forward to returning again. Thank you!More

The food and service was great and included really good vegetarian options. The noise level due to a lack of sound absorbing material was terribly loud which made talking with my partner difficult. In addition to the loud voices, annoying dance-type music was pounding in...the background. Not at all calm/romantic.More

My wife and I were on a weekend visit to the City and had plans for dinner with our two adult children who live downtown and we charged with picking a restaurant--they recommended Oretta. The four of us went for a Friday night dinner and...the place was comfortably busy with a good buzz. My daughter being celiac needs to be careful with choices but the staff was super helpful to ensure all choices were gluten free and even modifying a couple of shared entrees to GF so we didn't need to worry about limiting choices. My daughter hasn't been able to have deep fried calamari until this visit where they assured us it is GF and you'd never know the difference as it was excellent. The food was good the staff is friendly and helpful and the prices are reasonable - check this spot out for family or business.More

I had dinner with a dear friend last nite. We took a bottle of amarone. Corkage was $35. All good. Food was to write home about. Gluten dairy free all veg pizza. Lamb and sea bass. All done to perfection. Great volume. Lovely sat vibe....Sarina at reception and Annetta (Annette) the sommelier... Wow just two most wonderful humans. Lovely professionals who did work with pride. And I forget the name of one other wonderful kind lady who served our table and took orders etc. Made all fantastic suggestions. Ah I should have remembered her name (next time I promise!) if she is reading this review... ALL POWER TO YOU ME LADY... you guys are wonderful. I'll be a regular here for sureMore

Our visit to Oretta again was nothing short of 5 stars! They have a very creative take on their caeser salad, and you won’t find a better bolognese in the city. They have a broad selection of reasonably priced wine, not to mention their Happy...Hour half-off any bottle of wine or champagne! Love the unique decor - really creative Oretta sign at the front too. Will definitely be back soon!!More
