“Really good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

Their homemade bread is light and fluffy and to die for! My husband and I really enjoyed two of their sandwiches - each tasting the others and couldn't decide whose was better! One of the owners makes a point to visit each table! Definitely will go back for a full dinner meal. The restaurant is small and has a sweet atmosphere. Beer and wine are currently not available.

“Good Italian comfort food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

My husband and I stopped in for an easy dinner and found good food and easy atmosphere. I enjoyed a personal pizza with mushrooms. The 'shrooms were fresh (not canned), the sauce not overly sweet, and the cheese in the right amount. Overall, moist top with crispy crust - not bready. My husband enjoyed the chicken parm, and would order it again. The staff was helpful and not intrusive, the owner very friendly. We are happy to have a local restaurant with good Italian food. And, BTW, the cost was just right, not over-priced like some places in this area.

“LOCAL GEM - great authentic Italian food - and we are 100% Italian !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

We stopped by this place after taking a wrong turn on our way to another restaurant and landed at Orobello's (the owner's maiden name - she from Sicily) simply because it was close to the movie theater (by the way we did not like Gravity).

So we started with low expectations going in and were immediately surprised by the hospitality of the staff. I had a glass of wine, the bread was warm and delicious, and my Chicken parm was great. Importantly, the red sauce was not overly sweet and tasted and had the mouth-feel of homemade. My wife had a personal pizza that had a thin crispy crust and just the right amount of cheese.

Al in all - for $23.00 (before a good tip) we were ....very satisfied....

We will be back - you must try this place !

“Awesome house made bread and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

I went to Orobello's for lunch a week or so ago with some friends. I had the fried green tomato caprese salad and my friend had the chicken Parmesan sandwich. He's pretty picky and said it was the best he has ever had! The chef Aaron even came out to check on us and see if we liked the meal. We will definitely be back and recommend it - great new and much -needed restaurant in the area!
