    Attentive friendly service. Some of the best brick oven pizza in the city. The sauce light, sweet and delicious. Other dishes and appetizers were terrific. Don't miss the crispy friend artichokes and homemade lasagna!

    Very good neighborhood restaurant. Excellent wood fired pizza, which would have been large enough to split if each of us had gotten an appetizer or salad. Ortomare salad was delicious too.

    I totally love this restaurant. I love to experience new foods, new restaurants but I just keep finding myself return to Ortomare. The food is absolutely delicious, rustic, traditional Italian food. Love watching my pizza being prepared in a wood burning oven. The service is impeccable, the food is simply delicious, atmosphere joyful. Summer time cocktails with limoncello was second to none. YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE TIME TO EAT HERE! We love it !

    Very well prepared fine cuisine. Not fussy food just a great meal. It was like I was in Italy as I have eaten in Italy five times for authentic cooking. Better than the fancy ones I the city that cost over $100 a person for dinner. Go you cannot be disappointed.

    We moved into the neighborhood recently and I’d been meaning to try this place since it’s only a few blocks away. We ended up going as a small celebration of my first week at a new job, and we’re glad we did! We had a Caesar salad and meatballs to start, followed by a pizza margherita and the pasta bolognese. Their tomato sauce, which seemed to be the starting point for 3 out of the 4 dishes we ordered, was fantastic! As for the ambiance, it’s not a particularly romantic place (we were there before dark). Family friendly, lovely huge windows, and a nice outdoor eating space. We definitely plan to make this part of our date night rotation. Can recommend!

    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.

    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.
