We came here for my mom's birthday and were very impressed! The food was just delicious, ambiance was great and we all felt the service was exceptional. They were remarkably attentive and the manager personally brought a birthday treat for my mom which was such a nice personable touch. We would definitely come back. Thank you!

The food was basic. I had a pasta and felt like eating in my own home would have been a better option.

Honestly, while the staff were nice, their logistics were a complete failure... had a reservation at 9:30 and had to wait 15 minutes before they tried putting us into some dead back room area after which they said they’d put us in the upstairs section, so we complained and had to wait another 15 mins before they put us up there and there were clearly like 5-10 tables empty, set up tables there already so idk... then took another 40 minutes at least before the food came so overall waited like 70-80 minutes from the time I get in to wait for a relatively soggy pizza. Again though, the staff were fairly nice and remade my drink which had a fly in it so given the occasion I’d have to cut them some slack.

I honestly was super excited to dine here on Valentines. I made a reso six weeks prior yet when we arrived they had booths available and we were seated in the middle of the dining room, I asked if we could move to a booth and they said no, as it was busy and Valentine’s Day, but then not even fifteen minutes later they seated two people at a booth. Then as a celiac I ordered gluten free Fried artichokes and the Octopus. I didn’t finish half of it and I was in the bathroom puking. Ben was our server and her assured me everything was gluten free. As aesthetically pleasing as Oretta is, I will not be returning and I will not recommended your restaurant to a friend.

Need to turn off the vents above tables upstairs. It was very cold sitting under them. Asked the server if they could be turned off. Came back on after 5 minutes and people had to put their coats on.

Food was very good!! Aperitivo hour was a bonus! Good deals on drinks and apps. Service was sometimes slow, forgot a drink but just needed a reminder! Would definitely come back. The only thing I disliked was how dark it was for their dinner service. The decor is beautiful and it sort of took away from it because or how dark it was.

I’ve been to Oretta for their Happy Hour before and really enjoyed it. It’s a cool space with an interesting menu and wine list.

This was typically terrible Winterlicious service. We ordered wine before our mains, and it didn’t arrive until half way through the main. My wine glass had food particles from the dishwasher stuck to it, and I was finished my meal before the server came back and gave me the chance to ask for a clean one.

Dessert plates were never cleared (about 1/2 hour after finishing), resulting in my purse strap landing in the tiramisu twice!

Instead of using Winterlicious to showcase the restaurant, it seemed like an excuse to push out average food with sub-par service.

Went for brunch with my girlfriends on winterlicuos, it’s a very cute place, food and service are great! $15 for 3 glasses of wine pairing is an amazing value! Will go again for sure!

I had been to Oretta before and I really liked the food, the service and the atmosphere. This time I decided to take my husband and we went to look at the winterlicious lunch menu. We loved the food, however the arugula at the entrance was a little dirty as it was very fresh.

We came here for brunch but unfortunately because they are having winterlicious so brunch menu is not available. Food is ok and atmosphere is awesome however the server always disappeared and we waited a long time for food.

Went to Oretta for a 6pm reso on a Friday night. Arrived and my table was not ready, so I went to the bar with my guest to grab a drink until our table was ready. We ended up ordering drinks and apps, and taking advantage of their happy hour from 4-7 which was really good! Everything was good except the meat balls which were not homemade and not good. An hour later we were enjoying our food and drinks and we never got our table, we spent the evening at the bar, which was fine, and we honestly enjoyed the vibe. I think the hostess might of seen us enjoying ourselves at the bar and figured they didn’t want to move us or disturb, I mean, I wouldn’t have moved to our table if they told us it was ready, but the fact they never said anything was weird. What if I wouldn’t of been able to get 2 seats together at the bar? How long would I have to sit at the front entrance for my table? Overall had a good time, but if I return I’d like to know that within a reasonable time I would actually get my reserved table.

We loved our recent visit for their winterlicious menu. The swordfish carpaccio antipasti, bistecca di manzo, carbonara di cavalfiori, and the pistachio tiramisu were all delicious. Oretta has never disappointed and we'll definitely be back again.

We love oretta. However we were unaware that winterlocious was happing and would have appreciated being told this at time of booking our reservation. Limited menu items and bottomless mimosas double the price of regular dining days......we will be back after winterlocious is good and gone.

We were going to try winterlicious but went in during their happy hour.
Happy hour was good for sharing and tasting variety of dishes. Food was good value during happy hour! Definitely good place to catch up with friends while enjoy snacks and couple of wine!

Server brought the wrong appetizers to our table, but quickly brought the correct ones. The food and wine were excellent, definitely excellent value for the Winterlicious lunch. Wait staff was very friendly throughout our meal. When full, the noise level in the restaurant was quite high, but most restaurants in Toronto have the same problem for we older people. We will definitely return and recommend the restaurant to our friends.

We had a fantastic experience at ORETTA. Our server was attentive and recommended a great white wine to suit a variety of tastes. We had four different salads —all fresh and flavourful. Pasta dishes also wonderful. Overall great value. It’s nice to find a restaurant that isn’t overpriced.
Hope to return again soon. It was our daughters birthday and she was more than pleased with the evening.

Way too noisy, tables far too close together and constantly having to move a chair to let servers go by. Pleasant but inefficient service. I would not go back. Not my scene but if you're in your 20's or 30's and hang in the area I am sure it is fine. Décor and space was very nice but take a few tables out!
