We had a great lunch. The place was packed and the service slightly slow at first because they were making sure that others there before show matinees had time to get to the theater. Our food was excellent and the service very good.

Nothing other than excellent applies. From being greeted at the door, the wait staff and the food. An incredible experience that I highly recommend!

Third visit, and great to be back for punchy, delicious Italian home cooking. To start, roasted artichoke hearts with lemon and Parmesan (stunning, fresh) and then short rib pasta. Service speedy but spot on, flavours to die for, and amazing value.

Went there after the theater without reservations and had really good pasta (hand made) and fantastic sauce. Very reasonably priced and a relatively small, not too noisy place.

Got 2 pizzas and a pasta, one pizza(orso pizza) was not the best but the pasta and the other pizza surely made up for it. One of the best pizzas I've had. Can definitely recommend, the staff is super friendly and service minded.

Well done! Great on all fronts. Attentive friendly efficient service and amazing food. Not to be missed! If you're considering before a show call weeks in advance to reserve to not be disappointed. Can't wait to return.

We've eaten here several times over the past 15 years. We wanted to go to a place last minute for a nice meal that wasn't crazy expensive. Orso fits the bill. We ate at 7:00 pm as the pre-theater crowd was finishing up. By 7:45,...More

Friends had a pre-theater lunch here before a Saturday matinee and couldn't have been happier. Orso is fairly small, quiet so we could talk ,and we could actually hear each other . I had superb beef carpaccio and a perfect salad. Thanks to previous TripAdvisor...More

I was dressed very casual, jeans and a nice Ralph Lauren t-shirt, I felt fine dressed that way. Casual to nice casual is fine.
