    The only reason why I gave four stars instead of five was because of the limited menu when I asked for a regular salad with Romain lettuce and tomato and oil and vinegar the waiter came back to me and said they had no vinegar how does an Italian restaurant have no vinegar but then he proceeded to bring bread to the table with olive oil and balsamic vinegar The food was good and the service was good other than that mishap yes I would recommend the restaurant

    Definition of Ortomare: the best appetizer on the menu (good for sharing). Also a delicious pizza option. A special treat was pizza crust flatbread in the breadbasket. The salads are consistently fresh and perfectly dressed, and the homemade pasta never disappoints. Memorable limoncello martinis.

    Everyone was super nice and portions are generous but the pizza, despite being from a wood oven, was flavorless. The tiramisu was too.

    Lovely setting; great service and superb food, the salads and desserts were delicious and the pizza, freshly made, there are several choices, I have had several different pizzas and have not been disappointed. All have been delicious. This is a small, reasonable prized restaurant, which is family friendly and provides a very comfortable setting and friendly prompt service. Will definitely return with friends and family. Florence

    Great Italian food not far from Columbia. Took our son to dinner here and had great appetizers (Burrata) and calamari with vegetables. Food was excellent. Homemade pasta with sauce was great I had a special with shrimp, mussels, and calamari, my wife had the gnocchi. Drinks were good and service was excellent and attentive. I would definitely return for another meal when I am in the city.

    We so like this restaurant and if we lived nearby, we would be here on a regular basis. At any rate, each visit has been a very positive one from the attentive staff to the delicious food on offer. There are many choices and the wood-fired pizzas are always an excellent choice. Tried the beet salad this time and it was excellent with all of the other ingredients in it. And enjoyed the affogato as well.

    One of our go-to UWS restaurants over the past couple of years. Consistently great food, friendly and efficient service, and reasonable prices. It's a little north of our orbit but worth the extra walk.

    The waiter and I believe the manager was lovely and very attentive. Our waiter made great recommendations and the manager quickly provided an additional items we needed. The hostess wasn't very friendly and we sometimes couldn't find our waiter but other staff kindly stepped right in to help him so that was great. Will definitely be going back.

    We sat outside under a tent with a space heater overhead. The next table was not too close so that was good. Although I am fully vaccinated, I still would like to dine outdoors if possible, so I appreciate that they had this set up available. However it was still chilly— would be good to get the heaters a bit nearer. I would go again but dress warmly. - Service was good and friendly.

    Great thin-crust pizzas and pasta. Enjoyed the cocktails and watching the cooking process. They are open to making off-menu changes (we like mushrooms added to our pizza). Quiet enough for a good conversation - have been there several times.

    Wow, what a hidden gem. We were celebrating a bday and arrived an hour early - no problem as we were seated immediately at an outside spot of our choice. Our server/waiter is a true professional, knowledgeable about the food and wine and spaced out when he came to check on us. He was friendly, attentive and truly a nice person, probably one of the best I’ve had in eating in all kinds of restaurants for over 30 years, high end included.The owner/manager was also very friendly and checked back often as well and runs a great restaurant. At the end my bday was recognized with a candle in the dessert, a happy bday singing and a limoncello for our party on the house. Not only will I plan to come back when I’m in town, I’ll also recommend it to anyone wanting a first class experience with great food and professional service. I can’t say enough about the experience and the food. Great job everyone.
