This family run restaurant features specials and fine Italian dishes. Also a four course menu that is excellent. Very good sauces for all dishes. Staff aims to please and wants you to enjoy and feel welcome. It's all good food. House wine is good as is the Italian cheese cake.

What a surprise to find this lovely Italian Restaurant in Brooklyn. We were a large party and they were kind enough to hold a reservation for 12 of us. The place is small but very cozy and is run by a local family. They were so accommodating to our needs. The food was delicious and plentiful, I felt like we... More

I have driven passed this little corner restaurant hundreds of times, over the years, and never thought to try it. Its faded sign always seemed like an bad omen. Well, what a delicious surprise I had last night! My friend said he would like Italian food and I thought of finally trying it out. When you walk in it feels... More

This place came highly recommended from some people in my inner circle of foodies. Most portions are family style which would have been nice if the waiter told us. I tasted most of the dishes at my table and there was about 7 of us. The one dish that was actually very good was the manicotti and it was also... More

We made a reservation at the restaurant several days before. Upon arrival, an older, blond hostess/owner informed us that there was no space available. When I told her we had a reservation, she told me I was lying. I found the card with the reservation information on it, and she still refused to believe that I had a reservation. We... More

All food home made while you wait. Mussels are outstanding. Family run and quality abounds. Option to order as you like or a soup thru dessert option that is phenomenal. Veal, eggplant or seafood all choices are first rate. Daily specials available. Very good house wine reasonably priced and recommended.The food is worth the wait. Service excellent.

Ortobello is one of those places you've passed by a hundred times on your way to somewhere else. One day I decided to take my wife there and see what it was like. This is one of those neighborhood places that's been there forever, and with good reason. We were warmly greeted when we came in and seated immediately. My... More
