Nice to sit outside on a patio with lots of big umbrellas. Very friendly service. Really enjoyed the pizza and the pastas and the Happy Hour drinks. Not to much traffic on this part of King Street. Will be back!

A must-visit cozy restaurant during this patio season. The ambiance is very welcoming and charming. Great service and amazing food. The price can be a bit steep but they have a good deal called Aperitivo Hour so it is worth checking them out before you book.

It was great to be back to outdoor dining! It was an on/off rainy day and they accommodated me to a table with the umbrella covering. Food is delicious and price is great! I miss the indoor look of the restaurant, hope to dine indoors again!

Food is really good, the decor is fantastic and the patio setting is great! right in the heart of King. It's a little pricey but the food is really great. So happy to have been able to pay them a visit during the weekend!

Paid $80 total for 4 drinks. Found it overpriced for what it was, one of the drinks I ordered off the menu tasted pretty awful. Patio is super close to the streetcar tracks, meaning it can be loud. Probably wouldn't go again

All over was great .
The service from the girl who was assigned for our table was phenomenal.
The food was well cooked .
Being limited to outside dang ,we enjoyed the sun pretty much but the noise was a bit out of control .
Can’t complain though. I am happy to see Toronto is back in a revival mode.

My wife is ovolactovegetarian and was expecting a great risotto for the first time we went to a patio restaurant after long months of lockdown. Then they came with a small portion that was just made of rice, almost nothing else. So it wasn't worth the price. It would if the portion was bigger and there were more perks there! Also, I asked a bread basket that didn't come. I had to remind the server.

Definitely better before covid.
Since the pandemic restaurants are forced to higher their prices and make smaller portions

Unfortunately this is the 3rd and final time that we will be visiting Oretta. The food is great but the service has been terrible every time. The least accommodating place I've been to. We really have tried and only went back because of the food. Such a shame.

Excellent service and food! Unfortunately because of the grey zone we were sitting outside so late at night it got very cold. If you plan to eat anywhere really, plan a little earlier in the day!

Other then that, chef's experience was awesome, the food was great, and staff were wonderful!

The first time I went a few years ago I wasn’t impressed, but I’m now a true believer. This is a great restaurant on King W, and I’m basically positive you’ll like it.

I have been here before however this time was horrible, the food was not good at all and its a shame for such a beautiful restaurant. Due to covid we could not experience the inside and the patio was ok, for the prices the food was not good, my pizza was ok but my friends ordered the steak and was very disappointed.

Super great service, kind and personable waiters. We were outside in the tent so the ambiance didn’t parallel how nice it is inside, but very good quality food and drinks along with fair prices to match! Would definitely come back

Our group had a VERY poor experience at Oretta. We came to Oretta to celebrate a friend's engagement, because of the happy hour, we thought it would be the best option for our group in order to have a budget-friendly way to celebrate (especially for those under financial constraint during COVID). I called the restaurant multiple times during the week to confirm the reservations and ensure they could accommodate our group size.

When we went to order food, they told us they had "discontinued" the Happy Hour for in-house dining this week, and that we need to order from the main menu. Even though we had been to the happy hour multiple times in the last few months, the happy hour was still available for takeout and the happy hour is still advertised on the website and on the street sign. What baffled me most was that the hostess never let me know in the multiple conversations I had with them that week, about this last-minute change.

When we explained to the manager the only reason we made the group reservation at Oretta was because of the Happy Hour, he was VERY rude and said too bad there is no exception to be made during COVID. I'm frustrated by the very poor customer service from the management team, and the lack of understanding given that we were never made aware of this "last minute" menu change. It could have been dealt with in a much more hospitable way from the management team, there was no compassion from the manager at all.

I've been to Oretta many times before this for both the regular menu and the happy hour and I can honestly say the food is good, but with the level of service we received today. Neither I nor my group of friends will be returning or hosting events there in the future.
