My boyfriend and I dined at Ortolana new years eve and is defiantly one of the top restaurants in Auckland. The food is authentic without being boring, the ingredients are fresh and the service was spot on. At first glance the menu is small, they obviously try to focus on a smaller number of dishes and get them perfect, which they do. I had the lobster linguine to start which was like no other dish I've tried before, my partner had the fish of the day for his main and it was amazing (I'm not a fan of fish usually) and I had lamb, it was literally falling apart. There was a really good variety of wine to choose from and the desserts were delectable. This place is a must, with the only down side being you can't book, you go onto a waiting list though we only waited 30minutes and they called us, totally worth the wait. Enjoy!
