    Lots of energy in the restaurant, which is small, so make reservations. The food, especially, the sauces and accompaniments were fabulous. Both the menu and wine list shows a focus on quality over quantity. Highly recommended!

    We were very impressed by the quality of our meals, the service was outstanding, but I don't think we'll be going back until perhaps a weekday night in the winter when the restaurant may not be so populated. The owners have squished way too many tables into a small area, such that it detracted from my fabulous meal as I could hear at least four other diners' conversations and could barely hear my husband talking to me. And this was a Thursday night, not a weekend. Perhaps if we went with another couple and had one of the few tables for four it would have been better.

    We had a delicious meal. The chowder was a hit, best Caesar salad ever, terrific asparagus, etc etc. The restaurant itself is very loud so I wouldn't go there with a group unless you get the little private room with the single table in it. We were celebrating a birthday and were lucky enough to get it.

    The food was excellent. We shared the goat cheese and beet salad which was extraordinary. Two in our party had the swordfish and proclaimed it the best they had tasted. I had the linguini with clams - also excellent. Desserts were beautifully done as well. How nice to have Boston quality in Scituate. We ordered wine by the glass because we all preferred a different type. Oro provides a "good pour".

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/15/2010
    We enjoyed Oro but went in expecting a lot more as we had heard wonderful reviews. The two main courses were o.k., not great. My steak seemed standard- a little heavy on the balsamic sauce. My spouse was really looking forward to the lobster cakes but was disappointed that the lobster flavor was almost non-existent and the other flavors seemed overwhelming. On the other hand, I had the fried artichoke appetizer and that was very good- and though my spouse's oysters were also very good, he didn't enjoy the sides of sauce so he enjoyed them without the extras. Overall, it was a nice layout, good drinks (enjoyed a specialty mojito) and a nice atmosphere. Just wish the food had wowed us more.

    The food was quiet good however the noise level was uncomfortable. You had to yell to speak to the person across from you and there was no possibility of a 4 way conversation. We enjoy a happening place but also want to relax and enjoy chatting with our friends,Looked like a big bar scene. We would not return on a weekend if at all.

    It's nice to have a quality restaurant in Scituate.... finally. This is my 3rd time there, I really want this restaurant to work. I enjoy the ambiance, but the acoustics are horrible, it's very loud. My past two times I had the orchiette which is a GREAT dish! Last night I had a Mediterranean dish with Lamb, it was cullinary chaos, I really did not enjoy it (to be fair I do not have sophisticated tastebuds, so perhaps others would enjoy the multitude of sharp flavors clashing like a small war on your tastebuds). My husband had Clams & Linguine and he really didn't like it. The St. Germain specialty drink is fabulous and will become our pool side drink for the summer. Wasn't crazy about our waiter.

    My husband and I tried Oro for the first time on Mother's Day and it was definitely a treat. The ambiance is casual and lively, but definitely great for a special occasion. We both ordered the caesar salad and it was perfect. I had the Osso Buco and it was cooked perfectly, very hearty meal. My husband had the lobster cakes and really liked them. Our waitress was adorable, friendly, and very attentive. Can't wait to get back and try some of their other menu items which looked fantastic!

    We had a fabulous experience at Oro on Saturday night and will definitely eat there again (and again). The only other South Shore restaurant that comes to mind in terms of comparable quality of food, presentation, service and ambience is the Square Cafe in Hingham. Oro is reasonably priced given the outstanding quality of the dining experience. Be sure to make a reservation if you want to go on Friday-Saturday-Sunday.

    Dining experience at Oro's was excellent. :o) Food was extraordinary....and way above anything else you would find in Scituate. Was dismayed that many people dressed like they were going to a car wash. Hard to get people in Scituate to get out of their jeans and some had work shirts and 'tired' T-shirts....but maybe that will change. The decor was soothing and 'spa-like'...yet still reflected being seaside. The radiccio and endive salad, crispy lobster cake, corn chowder, swordfish and creme brule were all top notch. Everything cooked and presented with perfection. Delicious food and 'Boston-like' ambience...without the crowds, traffic and parking problems. A great spot!

We arrived mentioned our reservation and were seated immediately, that was very nice. They honor their reservations. By the way the food was amazing and the service great.

    This restaurant has just opened and while the remodel of the room is quite nice, there are a few issues which kept this from being a great dining experience. 1. Noise level...the lack of sound-proofing means that you cannot have a conversation in the bar area if it is busy. We had trouble hearing the server and she hearing us.2. The appetizers ordered were delicious but main courses were okay and not hot enough.3. On a busy night, there appeared to be only two waitresses so service was slow but not for the lack of trying.
