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.

    It was delightful. Food well cooked, tasty and hot, and excellent wine offer.

    One of my absolute favourites. Great food and wine at reasonable prices. Many of the staff have been there for ages and it shows in the great service. They really take care of you.

    As always it was lovely. The staff are really special here and helpful. Food as always absolutely delicious and we loved being there.

    Cramped dining area, wrong drinks served, haphazard menu, confused with first course: more like a pompadum: rather than flat bread, not impressed with main course: pasta swimming in a garlicky-tomato sauce. Very disappointed with this restaurant. Definitely won't be returning.

  • ((((* 27 November 2016 by Suzie Hall from London

    Really friendly and accommodating service and nice, cosy and unpretentious surroundings.
    They brought out our main courses before our starters but were very apologetic and gave us a free carafe of wine to make up for it.
    Food was enjoyable. I would come again.

    Great value 4 course Star Deal meal in a cosy basement, with a very good location near Covent Garden. Good service and food. NIce atmosphere - bit of a buzz but generally not too loud to hear each other. One group near us got a bit noisy later on and we asked if we could move and that was no problem for the staff.
