    A wonderful experience. The staff made every effort to ensure they could accommodate our party of 10. Tristan, our server, left us wanting for nothing. Every time we turned around, he was there to help. The food was spectacular and I highly recommend the carbonara.

    First place we found when we moved to Virginia. The service was outstanding. The food is good. My only issue is no bar, and the tables and chairs are uncomfortable to sit in. My suggestion is to get some cushions and take the bar area and open that up to a really nice bar to sit at and enjoy a cocktail or dinner.

    Excellent and friendly service (thank you, Jack) The salmon was perfectly cooked and a nice portion. I had the veal chop and it was tasty and plentiful with greens on the side. I would have liked a sliced potato on the side but this dinner was more than enough. We also had the multipulciano and enjoyed that also. If I could make a suggestion it would be to “warm up” the decor. Some warmer lighting and pictures and curtains would really be nice. We loved the music as a nice background.

    Dined at Orofino for the first time in quite a while. Monthly regional specials continue to be interesting and well prepared. Everday menu has seen minimal change and what each of us selected continues to be excellent. Have yet to be dissatisfied with anything on the menu. It's our go to and, in our opinion, the best Italian restaurant in downtown Fredericksburg VA.

    My lunch at Orofino was lovely- delicious Italian food (which is very hard to find in Virginia) and excellent service. Even though it was a regular meal, the entire experience felt like a special occasion. I have gluten and dairy sensitivities, and the staff was quite helpful and accommodating in the choosing of my lunch. I would definitely go back, and also recommend Orofino to friends!

    Lovely dinner with outstanding service. Calamari appetizer superb, eggplant parmesan dish (can’t remember the Italian name) was out of this world. The Orifino montipulciano wine was a perfect complement . All for a fair price, which is getting rare these days.

    Orofino was great! The calamari was delicious for an appetizer and I had raviolis filled with meat. It was delicious. My husband had the tortellini special and that was good too! My daughter had a margherita pizza and said it was delicious as well. We had tiramisu and cannolis for dessert. All wonderful. The atmosphere was pleasant and so was our waiter. He didn’t ask if we wanted any drinks besides water so I didn’t order any wine or anything. They were busy but the tables are spread out enough that you don’t feel crowded in. I feel like the staff could’ve been slightly more attentive, but overall it was a delicious meal!

    Every aspect of our lunch at Orofinos was fantastic. We had the meatball sub, Stromboli, and the pizza with potatoes. I didn’t know potato was so good on pizza! The tiramisu, which is typically not my go to, was magical. Service was wonderful. As we left, all of us commented how we would definitely come again.

    When we want lasagna, there is absolutely nowhere else that will do, and we gladly drive from near Charlottesville to have it. Staff is always fantastic and always interesting specials. This is many people’s “our Italian place” for a reason.

    Wonderful service! Trio bruschetta appetizer was amazing, great flavors and would order again! Orofino’s Montepulciano was smooth, with a light peppery finish and went well with the pasta dishes everyone ordered at the table. The Special with stuffed tortellini was very good. The eggplant was amazing! We shared the tiramisu, which was enough for three of us to enjoy without being overfilled!!! On the menu, it shows the areas of Italy and the dishes popular in each area as identified on the menu by number, what a great idea and very informative! Danilo was extremely knowledgeable and an amazing and welcoming host. Tristan our amazing server, who was quite honest with his description of menu items as well as his recommendations.  A very enjoyable evening! Will definitely return!!! The prices were amazing! The food was top-notch!!!
