We had the early dinner menu and it was excellent value for money and really tasty. It was rather like eating the wonderful Italian food of the 1960s. The service was super swift- good for theatre goers or anyone needing a quick meal.

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.

    Simply delightful. Octopus carpaccio was excellent. Good service, nice quiet and romantic corner table. If you want a quiet restaurant in the heart of Covent Garden, then Orso is for you.

    All of us left feeling well fed and watered. Loved the antipasti of fried courgette string (my description); my son not so keen on the flat bread as a bit oily but we provided that feedback at the end of the meal which the staff appreciated as they said it was a new menu. (think they change the menu regularly which is a plus as when we go again we will try something different) Staff all very pleasant and responsive. The star menu very good value. Restaurant is in a basement which may be worth knowing if you are claustrophobic like me as there are no windows. The atmosphere created by a steady stream of customers in and out (pre and post theatre I guess) and a clever use of mirrors meant that this was not a problem for me.

    Good menu; service friendly and efficient. Sea bass very good and beetroot starter a novelty.

    My party of four which included two of our grandchildren enjoyed an early evening dinner at Orso. The service was friendly and efficient, the ambience pleasant and the food was excellent, authentically Italian and well-presented.
