This is a small but reliable restaurant on restaurant row near the theatre district. Varied Italian menu, great pizzas and artichoke salad. Service very good.

Great Italian food. Try the brick oven pizza as an appetizer. The wine list is excellent. They have the service to get you finished and out in time for the show. Walking distance to all the major shows. Thought the entrees were a little pricy

I usually hate going to a restaurant by myself, as I always get the worst table and the slowest service. I was a solo diner at Orso and it could not have been more pleasant. They sat me a 4 top, amongst other diners (I...More
