There were four of us for dinner. From the moment we walked in the door and were greeted warmly to the end of our lovely evening, everything was perfectly wonderful. The restaurant area is up a flight of stairs, so be forewarned if stairs are...More

This place is a classic. In an old neighborhood away from downtown New Haven. Exposed brick walls and white tablecloths. Fine efficient service. During warm weather there are lots of tables in the garden in the back. Did I mention that it has some of...More

We brought out of town friends to L'Orcio's patio for dinner and had a great time. Wine, salads, entrees were 5-star, as was the service. Our friends loved it. Not too hard on the pocketbook either! Keep up the good work, L'Orcio!

Different cuisine, has a nice patio dining area in rear. We went here to celebrate a birthday and weren't disappointed, but weren't overly impressed either. Be careful if you order fish. I did and I didn't expect to see the whole thing on my dish...More

We tried L'orcio on a Tuesday night to take advantage of their $10 Pasta dish deal. Our waitress was excellent: friendly and helpful without being annoyingly so. We were also pleased with the cozy ambiance of the place. It was somewhat chilly that evening, and...More
