    My wife and I enjoy coming to this restaurant. The food is good well plated and the owner, waiters and busboys are very attentive. Their pizza's are delicious the appetizers are very good and the meatballs in sauce are great, many Italian restaurants fall short on their meatballs not at Ortomare. We have brought our adult son's and their wife's and they like Ortomare Restaurant very much. One of my daughter in law is a General manager to a Michelin rated restaurant and she scores Ortomare very well. Keep up the good work !

    Wood fire pizza was cooked just right. The dough was not soggy or too crispy. The crust was delish. We had the red sauce eggplant pizza. The fresh fettuccine was al dente... mushroom/spinach sauce a bit bland. However, I would return and recommend.

    We had an intimate New Year's Eve dinner. I had the pasta and sausage dish and my husband had his favorite dish, salmon with spinach in lemon sauce and baked potato fingers. For desert we has their delicious chocolate lava cake. The atmosphere was festive and the service was excellent. If you are considering a cocktail, I reccommend the Lemon Cello.

    This is a terrific alternative to more crowded restaurants on Broadway. Delicious food, quiet ambience, a menu welcoming both children (wood fire pizza) and adults (nice cocktails and wine). I love going here when at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine.

    I recently tried this pizzeria and was quite impressed. The sauce stood out — excellent flavor. For those on a gluten-free diet, their crust is a real treat; it’s excellent and doesn’t sacrifice flavor or texture. It’s great to find a pizza spot that gets both these elements right. The restaurant was cozy and the service was excellent. I took my extended family (9 people) and they didn’t have any trouble handling a crowd that size. I made a reservation on OpenTable and they had everything set-up and waiting. It’s a good think I did, because the place filled up.

    They have a great deal going on during the week where you get any pizza on the menu with a glass of wine for $25. I had the Burrata pizza which was very good. And the red wine was good also.

    I recently dined at Ortomare Ristorante Pizzeria, an Italian gem tucked away in the bustling streets of NYC. Each dish was a masterpiece. I can’t wait to return and explore more of their culinary delights. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a true taste of Italy in the city that never sleeps!

    Went there for my wife’s birthday and we had great dinner there. To start we had the norcina pizza which was the best pizza I ever had! It is somewhere between napolitana and romana style which I prefer. Both main courses the Gnocchi and Branzino were were good as well. For dessert we had the chocolate lava cake and the homemade ricotta cheesecake which we loved as well. Overall it was a great dinner and we will definitely return giving that the price we paid it is very affordable for NYC standards.

    “I recently had the pleasure of dining at Ortomare, and it was nothing short of spectacular. From the moment we walked in, the warm and inviting ambiance set the tone for a memorable evening. The service was exceptional. Our server was attentive, knowledgeable about the menu, and provided excellent recommendations. It’s evident that the staff is passionate about ensuring guests have a wonderful experience.

    I recently dined at Ortomare and had a great meal. Everything was delicious, especially the pumpkin pizza which was the best pizza I ate in NYC. The service was remarkable. They were happy to recommend drinks that paired with the pizza. The tiramisu was delicious too, very fresh and light. I highly recommend Ortomare to anyone looking for an amazing Italian dinner experience.

    Another OUTSTANDING meal here. Good and service are top-notch. Under-appreciated gem in the neighborhood. However, the outdoor seating areas lack ambiance. The lighting and decor do not make a bare pass at matching the quality of the food and service. Fix that and the dining experience will be flawless.
