As for me food is a bit overpriced.
The interior is very nice and cozy, service is very good. Menu doesn’t have plenty of options unfortunately. Cocktails were super overpriced and had lots of ice.

So yes food is great, drinks are good, I wish there was more options for the none wine drinks tho. Now the bad. Don't have people sitting eating drinking right next to where others are waiting to get in and showing there vaccine thing. It gets quite busy there. Also I heard no music for ambience all I noticed was people yapping, and oh yeah I know how the economy is and how it's tough it is for restaurants but can't you say thank you for coming to this restaurant by maybe not jacking up prices so much.

Been here before and did not have the best experience, but decided to try again!

When I first got in, I was told by my friend who had gotten there a bit earlier than me that there was an 1h 45min table time, which is a bit shorter than we wanted and we had expressed that nicely. I honestly would have been fine with that if we weren’t constantly reminded throughout our time there which wasn’t long since we were rushed out. With 45 min remaining, we were told that was our last call for food or drinks. 10 min later we were asked about how we wanted our bills split up and another 5 min later mid bite of my food we were given our receipts and the credit card terminal. I had to put my food down to make the payment and then felt even more rushed as they began to clear the table as I finished my food and drinks. We still had 20 min supposedly remaining at this point. The waiter even came back to us after that and asked my friend if she wanted to finish her last sip as he reached over to grab her glass. This was while she was also mid bite. This was a reunion dinner between some friends but by the end of it we were just flustered and wished we had chosen a restaurant that cared more about experience rather then pumping in and out people. From literally entering the restaurant to leaving the restaurant, we were only there for a little over an hour. And to provide some context, the 3 of us each ordered 2 drinks, and 2 food options. It wasn’t like we were holding up a table while just getting a drink, which I would totally understand and would never do that.

Lastly there were several other tables around us who had been at their tables eating before we had arrived. That tells me they were there for at least 20 min prior to us arriving yet still were there relaxed by the time we left…

Very disappointed as the food and venue are great. Sad to say but am not planning to come back again.

Food was fine but was placed in a back room alone just outside of kitchen entrance. By being placed in the back room we didn't get to experience the atmosphere of the restaurant. Because of this we just ate and left. The vibe was terrible in the back room and I wouldn't return or recommend.

Oretta does not give you enough time to eat your food or relax. They want to turn tables around as if they were a fast food restaurant and were pushy and made you feel rushed. They need to understand that we are there supporting them and get together with friends on a Friday night to have a positive experience. The food was good and the atmosphere was positive.

Highly recommend it to everyone. It all starts at the front door - immediately when you enter you are warmly greeted. Very friendly and attentive service. We were. party of four - none of us had been here previously and we all loved it. The food was hot and delicious. Can't wait for the second one to open at Yonge & Eglinton. I shall make this my new favourite place.

The Bruccheta was disappointing. Not enough meet and the cream was not very tasty. The pizzas were good but was lacking a little more garniture.
