A great addition to the local restaurant choices. The staff are super friendly and accommodating. The food is flavorful and well presented. I had the fish special (dorade) and it was cooked to exactly the right point. We have eaten here twice (live in the neighborhood) and will definitely be returning.

Me and my family had a great dinner on Tuesday night.
We shared a couple of fresh salads to start. I had their assorted vegetable pizza which was excellent and their daily special gnocchi with black truffle sauce. Excellent as well.

Great atmosphere, great location. Very mediocre food. Good pizza, the rest is surprisingly average, and disappointing

this was our first time there and it was very quiet which we like. Eddie, the manager, greeted us and checked on us throughout the meal. we like the wood burning oven for our pizza dinner which was very good. the waitstaff was very attentive and we were quite pleased with it all. we plan to come back soon and bring friends with us.

Delicious dinner at Ortomare. The seafood pasta was very tasty. And the pizza with broccoli rabe and sausage was amazing.

In NYC for a show with the family and decided to dine Italian. Ortomare showed up on OpenTable and we decided it give it a try. Not a large menu, which is perfect for me, and the food was amazing!

Everything was outstanding. Every dish was absolutely delicious. I had the Tartufata pizza which was delicious and unique. And of course the wood fired pizza oven is very attractive. My son had the Homemade pappardelle pasta with asparagus and shrimp which he enjoyed very much. The portions were pretty large and the price very reasonable for a NYC restaurant.

This is a very cozy place. The food is delicious and the service is super friendly. I had the Red beets and spinach salad with walnuts and goat cheese. Was delicious. I also got the Homemade linguine with clams which were cooked perfectly. Everything was fantastic!

Great Gluten Free Options.
I enjoyed the gluten free pasta and my husband got the Branzino which was cooked perfectly. And the 25% on the bottle of wine was a great deal to have.
Will be back soon. We love Ortomare!

Great variety of choices on the menu including wood fire pizza oven. The pasta was homemade and delicious! The waiters were extremely attentive even on this busy New Year’s Eve.

A Five star experience for a family gathering. Having lived and worked in Italy, I have come to appreciate restaurants that have the informal air of many of the best Roman osteria, good food, good value, nice service without pretension. Orto mare fits the bill perfectly. Excellent appetizers, carciofi e zucchini. ortomaro - sea food and zucchini, pasta, rigatoni (perfectly al dente) alla Norma (with eggplant) and Ragu Bolognese, a well priced wine list and excellent desserts made in casa. In short for the price a real find. One hint: improve the bread, everything else is excellent.
