We came to have lunch on 11/16/16. We love coming here for lunch.we have been customers for years. In the last few years this place has changed for the worse unfortunately. It all comes down to the service. Our paninis were good. Bread still crunchy and flavorful ,same with the salads. I like to be be fair when writing reviews.... More

The food was terrible; the service is nonexistent; the wait was interminable; and the staff is unfamiliar with the menu. You order at the counter--which is NOT what you expect when ordering lobster ravioli--and you have to ask for silverware. The "Alfredo sauce" was more of a congealed mozzarella, and the ravioli were cold. My husband's seafood "risotto" was not... More

I meet friends here every couple of month. We have never had a bad meal. The bakery items are plentiful and all homemade and the gelato is to die for. U won't be sorry if u pay them a visit. It's a nice quiet place with calming music while u eat or drink. The owner of tens comes by to... More

I love going here for the gelato, so many flavors to choose from. The best gelato I've ever had! They also have a very good bakery but I don't recommend the food. There is plenty of outside seating for all to enjoy.

Heard high reviews and needed great gelato for an event. Once inside we felt like we were in Sicily again. Besides the various cookies , gelato, and pantries, they offered salads panini and Flatbread pizzas. We decided to split an Italian salad that creates with warm bread. What an afternoon delight. We will be going back for more!

We went here for lunch on sat the food was pretty good, they have really good gelato and deserts here to go or you can sit down and eat there. This place is very kids friendly and has outdoor seating. If you are ever in the area it's a good place to try

Have been here many times. The pastries are always fresh and tasty. There are many to choose from so I get different ones each time I go. There are many flavors of gelato - I especially like their pistachio. Their specialty cakes are to die for. Having been born and raised in Rochester, Orien's reminds me of the old neighborhood...

Went with a group of 6 family and old friends. Basically, you are totally on your own at this place, seat yourselves, delegate an order-taker, get in line and wait. Food is delivered as it's ready, salads before anything heated. Plenty of greens, Caprese for $9.99 didn't have even have one tomato!? Tortellini with pesto an interesting combination of Liguria...
