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.

    Lovely restaurant downstairs. We were a group of six ladies so we were perhaps a little noisy, forewarned the restaurant had put us on a round table in a corner. The food was excellent and good value compared to some of the other places we have been to as a group. The service was attentive but not obtrusive and the wine list although all Italian was very good.

    Excellent food, great staff. I haven't given a rating to the drinks as I only had water! This restaurant is close to Waterloo Bridge and Charing Cross station - and it's so calm in the middle of the busy Covent Garden/Strand area. Thoroughly recommend.

    We did not want a starter but opted for cocktails and a a portion of olives, which were delicious. For the main course we chose breast of chicken served with root vegetables and salsa verdi-lovely.We had a problem deciding on the sweet course as everything appealed but we opted for lemon curd torte served on a bed of crushed biscuits with cream. This is one of my favourite ever desserts.Coffee after completed a beautiful meal.
