So glad we got a reservation or it would have been an hour wait, as we overheard 2 couples be told. We got seated immediately and we're brought waters immediately also. We were served within 15 minutes of ordering during dinner time! Our food was incredible but I'd go back a million times for the gnocchi (creamy) pesto my friend ordered. Our waiter was always available, checking up on us often without interrupting conversation or making us feel rushed. The atmosphere was so cozy and comfortable while being clean and quiet. Incredible experience. 10/10!!!

Food was delicious with sizable portions. Ambiance and noise levels were OK. Service was OK. Pricing was fair. On balance, would strongly recommend.

The food is always fabulous and the service is as well. This place is a cut above all the Italian restaurants in the Burg. You will find items that you do not find elsewhere.

Unfortunately, it was not as good as I expected. We were a party of 5 and two people did not like their entrees at all. Both only took one bite. When our server asked what was wrong and the reply was it didn’t taste good, she laughed and walked away. No trying to make it right. I expected much more from Orofino. My bill with tip was over 200 dollars. I’ll think twice before I go back.

The service was amazing. Excellent waiter. Food was so tasty and not heavy in the stomach. The acoustics in the building made it difficult to hear almost anything, but I am looking forward to going again. Wow.

Awesome server, understanding staff. They sat my husband and I sat s 4 top, so we called our friends quickly to invite them. (Live 5 minutes away). Server heard us and gently and very politely let us know they say us two as they had a foursome coming in an hour. Since we understood but still wanted to done with our friends who had never been there, we let her know it was no problem on our end, we let her know if we saw her trying to clean our table quickly or even just told us we would finish up. We had drinks, apps, dinner and ordered dessert to go. And a great tip from both couples. I think it went well, plus they now have new patrons since our friends loved the place and food!! Friend said the eggplant parm was as delicious as his grandma’s as it was sliced so thin!

Not only was the service impeccable - thank you Luca - but the food was next level. We stopped several times during the meal to ask each other “is this the best food you’ve had all year, because me too.” When we got the check, the three of us looked at each other in disbelief. How cld food this good, seemingly FROM Italy, be this reasonably priced. Come for the gnocchi, stay for the sauce. We will be back.

The flavor of the food was excellent. Service was good. However my roasted cauliflower was served cold the risotto and veal lukewarm. My spouse's eggplant Parmesan was exceptional. They're worth giving another try.

We celebrated our 28th anniversary at Orofino and were so glad we did. The waitress was friendly, professional and accommodating. The restaurant is modern, clean and very comfortable. The food was fresh and delicious. Best calamari in Fredericksburg. Dining at Orofino was wonderful! We'll be back for the wine tasting in March.

I thought the restaurant was overrated. We arrived a few minutes early and was greeted with a “ok we’ll make it work” . I was surprised since there were many empty tables. The atmosphere is very casual, no tablecloths and menus are in a plastic sleeve. The menu is very extensive. I had eggplant parmigiana that was served barely warm. My husband had a steak dish that the waiter recommended to be cooked “ well done”. My husband doesn’t eat meat anyway other than medium rare so that’s what he ordered. The steak was served overcooked. The waiter was sweet but not attentive. In all fairness diners next to us thought it was the best Italian food they had ever had. Overall we were disappointed and won’t go back, but maybe we were expecting too much based on reviews.

Fabulous food! This is one of our favorite restaurants in Fredericksburg. After living in Italy for 12 years, my family and I agree that their food is the closest to what we would eat in Italy. Their pizza is wonderful. The staff is always friendly and helpful.

Orofino is a FANTASTIC restaurant that serves authentic Italian food. I felt like I was back in Sicily tasting some of the most incredible appetizers and entrees. I was extremely impressed by the attention of the staff and the attention to detail with all of our groups meals. Grazie per un’esperienza indimenticabile!

Food is phenomenal!! Service was great. A little chaotic when you first walk in but our table was in the back so it was in the back. Tables in the back are separated well so you don't feel like you are listening to the people next to you

I took my wife to Orofino for her birthday. The setting is cozy and it reminded me of some of the bistros that I've eaten at when in Rome. The most striking feature of the place is the beautiful pizza oven. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. The gnocchi tasted just the way that good gnocchi should and the sauce was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and made the experience pleasurable. Orofino is a gem in Fredericksburg - I highly recommend it.
