Orto Santa Monica
You’ll often find my wife and kids in the restaurant, continuing the culinary legacy of our Italian family. We welcome you with open arms and hope you’ll join us to experience our restaurant.
Valentines dinner and my date is a foodie. She did not know about this place and I heard good things. She was very pleased and I loved the food. Oso Buco Ravioli and Veil chops were amazing. The eggplant Parma was great. I recommend this place.
Absolutely great food! Will come back!
Great neighborhood gem, amazing and fresh food. Happily surprise.
Me and my friends decided to check out this Italian spot in SM. Pasta was delicious and Burrata was amazing. My Italian friends approved 🤞🏻 the service was a bit slow, and after we left, the restaurant charged me a wrong amount. I was supposed to pay 30$, but they charged me 70$. When I called in to figure out what happened, the host told me to fix this problem with the bank?? These people really need a better customer service
very nice dinner. I will definitely come back. Nice gesture...free dessert!
The octopus and pastas were amazing. Love the main dining room with big windows. Andres has nailed it.
ALWAYS AN AMAZING MEAL AND LOVELY ATMOSPHERE. ONE OF MY FAVORITE DINING PLACES
Excellent farm-fresh Italian, beautiful setting and professional service. It's one of our favorite places in town!
The waiter didn’t seem attentive to us. Waited too long to order and rarely checked on us but the food was amazing
Lovely, intimate fine dining. I especially recommend the artichoke and arugula salad with pecorino!
Good food but service was very slow. A couple next to us sat, ate bread and 45 mins later we’re not able to even get a wine list, so they got up and just walked out. Our res was at 7:15 and we didn’t even order till 8:00.
Superb branzino. Terrific service
Excellent service! I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and they surprised us with desert! Very thankful! Excellent atmosphere!
We thoroughly enjoyed our New Years Eve at Otto. The food was outstanding as was the service. We will definitely be back.
Outstanding food and incredible service! We can't wait to go back!
Consistently excellent food based on traditional Italian dishes
We have been there three times and will continue tothere. Friendly and delicious.
I had not been to this restaurant before and did not know what to expect. I booked it primarily because it was open for Xmas in Santa Monica and close to beach, which I wanted. It turned out to be a wonderful and delicious experience, and I would drive to there from Pasadena, where I live, to have dinner any time.
Christmas Eve dinner.
Orto’s cuisine is authentic and delicious and the servic
Love the food Great service have had great meals every time I went there
Great new high end Italian in Santa Monica. Perhaps the best on the Westsde.
One of the best carbonaras in the city, certainly in Santa Monica, brought us back for our annual holiday lunch and Orto continues to impress. One of the most prominently placed best kept secrets in town, the owner/host, Andrea Inio, exudes old world hospitality while providing seamless service. Since our last visit he's even introduced a bargain two course lunch for $19. After all, few are spending $80 a couple for lunch these days and this Dine L.A. style opportunity is a smart introduction to this fine restaurant. Save room for the luxurious tiramisu.
Always amazing food, outstanding & personable service, an excellent owner who’s involved in both the kitchen and with the diners. Always a treat to dine here!
Orto is my favorite restaurant. I have been there a dozen times and each time the food and service are wonderful. The veal chop is fantastic and the mushroom salad is to die for. The other night my wife had the sea bass which I would highly recommend. The owner is on top of everything and won't go home happy unless his customers have a great experience. Our friends and family now regard Orto as one of their favorites. Highly recommend it to everyone!
