This will be a strange review, perhaps, but its important to share. Five minutes ago I had the surprise opportunity to taste a slice of their mozzarella pizza. I didnt order this pizza and it had to go on a journey to end up in my living room. By the time the slice got to me it was already room temperature, maybe having been made an hour prior. (Keep in mind, the pizza was in this state at no fault of the restaurant!!!) Even after its long journey, this pizza slice was BURSTING with freshness. The mozzarella had such an amazing taste. It was GOOD. Somehow it was both strong and subtle. So good. I am not a foodie, so I cant explain better than that. I was NOT expecting this pizza to be this good but it WAS and I am so pleased and they definitely have my future business. Thanks chef!
We heard good things about Orto. We also heard that you can usually get in without a reservation on Sunday night. We confirmed both to be true and were not disappointed. We started with two of their special cocktail. They were amazing! The rest of the meal just got better and better. We finished up with olive oil cake and a very nice dessert wine that was something like a port, but better. The service was exactly the right balance of attention and leaving us to enjoy the night. Overall, the dining experience was great.
Started the meal with delicious cocktails, decided on Buffalo mozzarella over tomatoes on toast for appetizer the only thing was I came after I read reviews for pizzas and as a pizza connoisseur, I had to try. At the time, there was a wait for pizza so I had to wait a little for my pizza but after sipping on some delicious wine and being taken care of by our lovely waiter by the time the pizza came out it was well worth the wait. I recommend local mushrooms pizza and the lasagna. Will be back again, maybe on a less busy night so I can get thats pizza into my mouth faster!
Really enjoyed the food, service was good. The food is a good mix of classic and adventurous. Overall we had a great time and enjoyed the food! White bean dip was so good, buffalo mozzarella was top notch. Some of the more adventurous dishes might not be for everyone, but there is enough variety on the menu that i appreciate the chance to try something new! They also have a good mix of more traditional dishes.
Our new favorite spot. Everything we have ordered is on point, full of flavor. Best pizza in Charlotte!! My goal with this review is that they will become so busy that they open another location in south Charlotte
