We had a fabulous meal and our waitress and other staff were wonderful. Unfortunately we couldn't stay for dessert as the table behind us had a couple of extremely loud & raucous people at their large table - just luck of the draw, but next time we come we will stay for dessert!

The mains were incredible. I am a bit more skeptical with the starters (piadina) and desserts (chocolate torte, which was not much more than a brownie to me). But all in all, the food was good, just not as exceptional as I thought it would be. The service was impeccable, nice and attentive. Our waitress offered some really good advice and recommendations. The location and the interior are spectacular.

Vibrant and busy, maybe a little too busy.

I find myself at Ortolana every time I visit Auckland. It often serves as my office as I meet with clients literally morning, noon and night. I love the food, the environment and the warm welcome. Thank you so taking such great care of me and my many guests.

Great & friendly service ! Food was also very nice as well. Went there for my wife's birthday dinner and they gave us special dessert at end of our dinner! Definitely going to visit next time.

It’s a lovely restaurant. When I look at the menu I always think it’s limited but it isn’t... everything is so good! I only wish the toilet was better then it would be my favourite. Food is excellent. Wine is excellent and the service is great. Fab location and cute setting say it night

We had a great time at Ortolana. Staff were really helpful with the children. Almost all the food was excellent and we made good use of the BYO! Only criticism would be of the confit duck agnolotti which just did not work at all - way to dry and almost gritty with the breadcrumbs... the rest was great though so would thoroughly recommend and we will be back.

The staff were so accommodating and friendly, everyone had a really nice time. My only feedback would be, because we were a large group we asked our waitress the best way to order and we did it the way she recommended but when it came time to split the bill there seemed to be some confusion. Someone who paid for 2 people paid $120 and me paying singularity paid $90 and one of my friends already payed for my drink. I didn’t mind in the end but just good to be mindful of for next time :)

Some of the food was great but other dishes were average for the price and expected standard of the restaurant. Great staff and atmosphere though.

Originality without sacrificing flavour. A real triumph. Everything we ate was tremendous.

I was so looking forward to dining at Ortolana last week. But sadly the food was not up to the usual standard. I was persuaded away from the Piadini with pumpkin (by the waiter) and chose the one with Courgette, Gran Padano etc. What wasn't on the menu was chilli which completely overpowered the filling, and the wine. Then I had the Confit Duck Agnolotti, which was ok, just - not much duck flavour. The accompanying Brussel Sprouts were inedible, being charred but not cooked and too tough to cut through. Even after a re-presentation I did not like them. Kindly this was not charged for on my bill. I am sorry to have to present an unfavourable review; it is not something I've done before. Beverley

Lovely evening couldn’t complain about anything. The waitress when we arrived swapped our table to outside instead of the shared table which was so lovely, service was great was just lovely early mother’s day dinner

The food was really fresh, smartly presented and tasted delicious - couldn't really fault it. The interior fit out of the restaurant gives a fairly relaxed vibe - if anything it can get a bit noisy (lots of glass, metal finishings) and although we were dining inside it did feel a bit cold. Service was very good. We'd go back.
