Great dinner and fantastic atmosphere. Authentic Italian restaurant (Italian chef and staff). Thank you Francesco for the friendly service!
Orto has become our local "go to" restaurant, always enticing us with surprises from the kitchen, even unordered tasty morsels.
Great food, great service. We had the special tasting menu.
Excellent dining experience. Best Italian food in Ottawa. Very authentic, fresh ingredients, great service. An absolutely wonderful hidden gem.
We had an enjoyable evening. Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and so personable. The Chef's talents were certainly on full display, and he came out several times to present and explain a dish. The ambiance of the lovely patio was superb - it's like dining in an herb garden! Very fragrant and pretty. Well done!
Everything we ate was delicious. I had the Insalata di Polpo (Octopus salad) - which was grilled perfectly. It was served with a giardiniera - they paired very well together. Then for my main I had Cacio e Pepe a Limone - they way it's supposed to be made. I loved the subtle hint of lemon and the fresh pasta was cooked perfectly al dente. The plating was beautiful - each dish looked Iike artwork. The service was also great. We felt at home! One of my favorite places for authentic Italian food.
Great food and service innovative menu, my favourite restaurant in the neighborhood.
What a beautiful night out - at a restaurant!!! Food was fresh and delicious. Service was warm and knowledgeable. Spacing and airflow was very health aware. Very special evening - grazzie!!
An exceptional experience. Excellent service by Francisco; very personable. And the food was a real delight.
Lovely little restaurant. Food was delicious, presentation meticulous and portions perfect. Our server was a delight. Orto will be on our "regular" roster.
Real Italian flavours, creatively interpreted. But this food is not overly complex or complicated. It is food made to be enjoyed. Plus, fantastic service. This restaurant would stand out in Italy, and it certainly does in Ottawa. We will be back.
Our dinner at Orto was unforgettable. Every dish exceeded expectations. We are lucky to have a restaurant of this calibre in the Glebe.
A wonderful Italian adventure ! Our warmest thanks to the chef and our new favourite Italiano server Francesco.
