One of our favourites, Oretta will elevate your day. With their newly curated lunch menu fine dining no longer has to come with the heavy bill. Executive Chef Gabriele Di Marco has put together a selection list of their most popular offerings to create the Pranzo Veloce (Quick Lunch) menu, which gives guests the choice of an appetizer, main and dessert for only $20. Available Monday to Friday from 11:30 to 4:00 pm, the short list includes house favourites like Margherita pizza, paccher from scratch with bolognese sauce, house-made insalata and fresh cannoli’s.
A time capsule of design, Oretta on King, will transport you with soaring arches and authentic italian architecture reminiscent of the art deco movement of the 20s and 30s. It’s chic and elegant dining has attracted many of Toronto’s elites while remaining casual and comfortable. Whether you’re running from the office to the gym, looking for a nice lunch spot with your friends or colleagues or closing a deal, Oretta’s ambiance will fit your needs.
In a premo location, Oretta feels close to everything. Just steps from main roads and directly along streetcar routes this restaurant will always feel convenient to visit.
Food & Drink
Curated menu’s tend to have a bad reputation for being pre-made, pre-plated cheap menu items. The goal of this menu curation was exactly the opposite. At Oretta, the inspiration is to bring authentic Italian cuisine to the urban streets of Toronto.
Quality of taste is everything, every bite should taste just like Nona made it, even for only $20. Containing menu favourites as opposed to simple menu items speaks to Oretta’s dedication to quality and customer satisfaction. Our favourite meal combination is the butternut squash seasonal soup, branzino fish laid on a bed of rapini with a filled to the brim ricotta cannoli to finish.

Your meal allows for the choice of flat or sparkling water. However if you’re day needs an additional pick me up the full drink menu is available to choose from. We recommend the L’Estate Negroni as a midday refresher.
Customization can accommodate vegetarian diets on some dishes and starters.
