“Excellent meal, great service !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2014

I have been here a few times but not in a while until this past weekend. They started getting quite busy after we ordered but the service was very good throughout the meal. We did not have appetizers but I tried the Veal Parmigiana and it was a huge portion ! I am not a fan of any food that is huge because often quantity comes at the expense of quality. But not in this case. The veal was tender and the cheese was velvety. But I must mention that the dinner rolls were fresh, warm and also very large. My wife had the veal Luccia and she also liked it very much. The two other couples enjoyed their meals as well. The main dinning room is fairly plain but a few touches has improved it recently. We would definitely go back

“crazy chef and unprofessional”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2014

i haven't been to this restaurant in a while and now i remember why, one out of 5 dishes was tolerable. The whole restaurant is unorganized and you can see where they try to cut corners. And just an FYI don't send anything back or complain because the crazy chef will come out! Do us all a favor...close your business and cook for friends. don't get excited about outside seating, it's on the street. Nothing good about this experience and then when questioned it they were so unprofessional.

“Great Service and Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

What a wonderful evening we shared last week. Eggplant rollatine, chicken parmigiana and shrimp georgina were all fabulous! My husband found the shrimp to be one of the best dishes he's had in a while. The waiter, Dan, was very attentive and friendly. He made a maple martini that was delicious, too. There are a few tables outside if you want to enjoy the sunshine. It is on a busy street, so if you prefer to eat inside, the decor is lovely.

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

Saw some of the reviews that were not positive but decided to give Loretta's a try. We were pleasantly surprised. Great service. Reasonably priced. Starter of calamari Louisa was good. Portion of the sale of wine goes to charity which was sweet. I had the special which had a generous portion of seafood including lobster. I would go back just for the homemade rolls. Crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. I would recommend and will return

“Common Italian Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Loretta's isn't a bad place, it just isn't the best. There is a family atmosphere about the place which segues into a very relaxed dinner. But good Italian food it isn't. The sauces are applied with a heavy-hand and are "heavy" to boot. The menu items are the usual fare to be found on a menu at most smaller Italian restaurants. Every time I visit, I hope to see things like Chicken Rollitini, prepared with a light sauce. Over all, for the price, Loretta's is ok.
