Success! Thanks for posting your review of Orso's. You’ve done the world some good today.

It's like a dump. But with food!

We've snacked at Orso's back patio during festivals in the area, and thought we'd try the restaurant. Thanks to rude service and a miserable environment, we'll never set foot in their establishment again. If you're looking for a nice, pleasant Italian meal, go elsewhere. Tables are on top of each other and jammed next to the kitchen and services entrances. Average age of the place was 60, probably people who had ... view more

Great patio, Great Food, horrible service

I always try and base my rating on food and Orso's is certainly is fitting for some of the best Italian in the city and the patio is a wonderful setting for summertime gatherings. Unfortunatley, I had tried numberous times to make a reservation for a Saturday and was point blank told they would not accept any more reservations because of larger parties that they were already booked. I can't believe everytime I hav... view more

Nothing to write home about

I walked by this place so many times and was looking forward to trying it. My mom was in from out of town so I thought, ""prefect opportunity!"" We were both disappointed is the service, food quality and the fact that there was only one other table seated on the entire place. I?d say it was quite a let down on the hopping wells street atmosphere. At least we had our pick for the window table so we could people watch.... view more

Check for rodents before dining outside!

While on a date, we decided to go to Orso?s for a glass of wine. Once seated in the corner of the outdoor garden, we ordered our wine. Approximately, 20 minutes of being seated a large rodent ran under our table. We immediately got up to notify the wait staff. After telling the waitress about the rodent, she said ?we?re outside, rodents happen?, she never offered to reseat us or make reasonable accommodations. My dat... view more

The food was great and the patio was very cozy! The service was a bit slow but we didn't care! Overall we would definitely visit again and will take guests visiting from out of town! \r

completely amazing!!

If you're looking for a romantic spot any night (or day) of the week for simply amazing italian cuisine and a delightful atmosphere, Orso's is the place to be! The interior is semi-formal complete with white linen tableclothes, chandeliers and a pianist. During the summer months, the outdoor dining area is simply amazing - covered in a canapy of grapevines. A true dining experience!! And the staff is warm and friendl... view more

Love this place!

The two restaurant areas are nice but different. The entrance area is louder, while the smaller room with the piano can be very romantic. The tables are small with candles and the room is tight but the atmosphere is great. The dress is casual like most italian restaurants. The food was very good in my opinion. I've eaten the manicotti as well as the chicken vesuvio with potatoes on seperate occasions and enjoyed both... view more

I do not agree with the other reviews at all. I went on a Saturday evening and sat in the front garden area. After ordering an appetizer we waited for our server for more than 20 minutes to return to take our dinner order. My boyfriend had to go inside to ask the hostess for our waitress! Then finally when we got our food, lets just say they were mediocre at absolute best. My lasagna was bland and tasted like a ... view more
