Fab restaurant with exceptional service. We were running very late for the theatre and couldn't have been more helpful... oh yes, and the food (especially the risotto) was excellent. The tables were not too close together so easy to have a private conversation,

Nestled in a converted orchid warehouse, Orso – Covent Garden presents a chic, bistro-style retreat. With sleek wood furnishings and pale terracotta walls, the dining room evokes the charm of 1950s Milan.

With a long established reputation for superb Italian cuisine in Covent Garden, the Orso menu offers lovingly-crafted, traditional cuisine, whilst incorporating an exciting twist. Quality, regionally-sourced ingredients are used to create tempting dishes, like roast Tuscan sausage with braised black cabbage, or fresh penne pasta with wilted spinach and gorgonzola.

Within a vibrant area of London, Orso restaurant offers a comfortable atmosphere which is perfect for a leisurely meal, and diners can unwind with a glass from the fine range of well-balanced wines. To round things off, the dessert menu is filled with indulgent delights, like flourless chocolate cake with mascarpone, or pear and caramel tart.

In a quaint setting, Orso Covent Garden is just 6 minutes’ walk from Covent Garden Tube Station, and 2 minutes from the Lyceum Theatre.

    Orso has long been a favourite dining experience of mine. I now live in Europe so don't get the chance to dine there very often. I took my son last night and was struck by the garish sign over the door ( instead of the discreet brass tag on the door) and on entering found it to feel less authentic and special than when last there. The menu has changed and has less high quality original Italian dishes than before. I ordered the Calamari frites and it arrived too quickly to be made from scratch. My Fegato was good but not very much liver. The wine list is also much less interesting than it used to be. Food was okay as was service but it feels like a more average Italian Diner that the special place it was.

    Arrived early on Saturday night for our table booked for 7pm
    Sat at the bar with very nice cocktails and even given the table early, if we had wanted the early evening menu ( finishes at 7pm) we could have had it
    Great food, good atmosphere and good service
    Next time we are in London we will be back!

    Great food
    Very good service
    Food was very authentic Italian and the chocolate torte was probably one of the best I ever had
    Would definitely go back

    I always eat at Orso when I am in Covent Garden as I love the ambience. I wouldn't describe the food as great but it is good and they always have a set menu at a reasonable price.

    Good welcome and friendly manager. Unfortunately pasta was cold and too much chilli for my liking. Ambiance of restaurant very good but food let it down.

  • (((** 4 March 2017 by Judy Trayford from London

    Friendly helpful service, lovely cocktails. I had smoked salmon crostini followed by belly pork, both of which were delicious and perfectly cooked. My husband had the soup which was lovely but unfortunately the steak he had for his main dish was tough and not really very good. That was a shame because otherwise I would really recommend Orso to everyone
