Oretta appeared on the Toronto Winterlicious menu and thought to give it a try on a Friday night. The restaurant has a great energy, the food well prepared and delicious. A cool spot without any pretentiousness.

I went there to participate in Winterlicious and I must say I got more than I expected. A bit on the high end when it comes to pricing, but overall it’s was a great new experience.

Visited on a Wednesday evening. The decor is excellent and adds to the atmosphere. The food is alright for the price. Standard Italian fare but you could be anywhere. I had a pizza.

I had dinner at Oretta and was allure by its beautiful interior design, but the food was so plain. My Branzino was such a boring experience, I was expecting a natural flavor enriched with herbs. Instead nothing, so I asked the rest of my friends...More
