Toronto's New Oretta Location Just Opened & You Can Try Totally Different Dishes (PHOTOS)
There's a weekend brunch coming soon!
There's a new spot to indulge in pasta, pizza and delicious Italian fare in Toronto. Oretta, a popular Italian restaurant on King Street West, has officially opened its new Midtown location, and here's a look at what you can expect.
The new venue opened on February 3, and you can find some of your favourite Oretta dishes along with some brand new features inspired by Southern Italy.
The decor has the same vibes that the original location is known for, and you'll see the Art Deco design reflected throughout the space. Rich pops of purple, pink, orange, saffron and green add some brightness to the interior.
When it comes to the menu, you can expect the "staple pizzas and pastas with a twist" as well as new dishes to try. Some seafood options include the Branzino Alla Puttanesca, a Mediterranean sea bass served with caper berries, olive, chilli, and oregano, and the Involtini di Pesce Spada, a sliced swordfish roulade with pine nuts, focaccia crumble, capers, fennel salad, and more.
There are also two different kinds of grilled meat boards; one with seafood and one that includes lamb, veal and pork.
Good news brunch lovers — the restaurant will be offering weekend brunch starting March 5, and you can feast on some brand new dishes. According to the Midtown Chef de Cuisine, Darren Couto, the Tuscan stew Ribollita e Salsiccia and the Uova e Asparagi are must-tries.
Next time you're craving some rustic Italian fare, head to this spot to order your old favourites or to try something brand new.
