Met someone halfway between Richmond and DC in Historic Fredericksburg for a meal and conversation. Orofino was our choice and we were very glad we did. Very clean, authentic dishes. Excellent combinations and flavors, everything seemed fresh and portion size was just right. Brett served us quickly and with professional ease. Highly recommended.

We were looking for a patio for lunch and saw this lovely brick terrace. What followed, was one of the best Italian meals my husband and I have had, including Italy. The Caesar salad had a great dressing which included mustard and sun dried tomatoes.The pasta was store made and both dishes were delicious The orricetti Bari was especially good. The 'Lunch Box' meal for $10 included a full serving of pasta and caesar salad terrific value

Orofino was recommended to me by my friend who is a caterer from Italy. Having lived in Italy I am often disappointed by the quality of food at many restaurants. However. Orofino was fantastic. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We had gnocchi in a delicious tomato sauce with fresh mozzarella, and ricotta filled garganelli pasta in a ragu sauce. For dessert we had an olive oil infused cake with almonds and orange zest covered with an orange glaze and topped with whipped cream. Even the espresso was delicious.

Its a casual spot with reasonable prices, friendly staff, great wine and fantastic food. I highly recommend it. You can really tell they care by the high quality of the food they serve. Bravo!

Orofino is the real deal when it comes to Italian fare. What else would you expect when the owner is Sicilian and half the staff communicate amongst each other in Italian?!

I have had several different dishes at Orofino. They have a monthly menu that rotates through the different regions of Italia, as well as regular lunch and dinner menus. On those, the pesto gnocchi is fantastic, as well as the bolognese. And the lemon cake for dessert is heavenly!!!

If you are looking for something unique for your trip, Orofino offers Italian cooking classes, language classes, wine tastings, and a (monthly?) Chef's Table, which is a 6 or 8 course meal (with vino) and you get to learn some Italian history during it as well.

If you want the best Italian food outside of Italy, you MUST go to Orofino!!!!

We enjoyed our lunch very much! The crocheted I salmon was especially good. We enjoyed the squash soup, bread and pasta, and panini. The service was delightful.
