Nestled in the heart of downtown’s Caroline Street, Orofino is a charming Italian restaurant that is welcoming, family friendly and, above all, makes a mean lasagna.

This family-owned and operated restaurant is a great place to have a family supper, catch up with your besties over wine and cake, or have a romantic (hello, Valentine’s Day) dinner. Orofino offers more than just authentic Italian food. You can take cooking classes, enjoy wine tastings, have a chef’s table experience, get your party catered and even take language classes.

We recommend any of the Lunch Box options for lunch, the lasagna always, a glass of wine (ask your server for the best pairing) and don’t you dare leave without a coffee and dessert from the cafe.
