La Cucina di Orm Oja on Vene street in the Old Town is a great choice for lovers of Italian cuisine and atmosphere. The dishes are excellent, the wine list is extensive and the atmosphere is relaxed and sophisticated.
La Cucina di Orm Oja might go unnoticed by many passers-by because there are no flashy signs on the street. Those passing by may be left admiring the beautiful wooden door of this restaurant, but the ones who enter are those who know where to get excellent Italian food in Tallinn.
The restaurant is the perfect place for a romantic dinner
If you are travelling to Tallinn for romantic moments, La Cucina di Orm is the perfect place for an atmospheric dinner. The checkered tablecloths, the vaulted arches of a medieval stone building, Italian music, wine racks reaching up to the ceilings and dim lighting will elevate you above the everyday life and put you in the right mood. For starters, choose from mouth-watering burrata with tomato and basil, bruschetta, prawn tails in a tasty tomato sauce, or the restaurant’s signature dish of deep-fried artichoke hearts with cheese and truffle oil, Orm Oja style. The starters are sized to be shared in the European style.
On the main menu, of course, there are several pasta dishes, risottos and ravioli. The pasta and ravioli are prepared in the restaurant’s own kitchen. For the main course you can choose from entrecote, chicken, pan-fried fish or grilled aubergine with goat’s cheese, basil pesto and tomato sauce. All in all, La Cucina di Orm Oja offers a stunning array of classic and modern Italian flavours made with quality ingredients. The wide menu makes it easy to choose a delicious dish, even for several visits.
The restaurant’s wine list is staggeringly good and the expertise of the waiters is well worth using to find the right drink. A successful dinner can end with a sweet dessert of panna cotta, tiramisu, cannolis or even ice cream. We also recommend trying the restaurant’s own limoncello.
Restaurateur Orm Oja also has a pizzeria serving Neapolitan pizza, right next door. La Pizzeria di Orm Oja is available at Vene 1.
