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.

    Disappointing. Dark lighting and the Diavilo pizza had no chilli. Prefer pizza express.

    certainly ok, not bad but not great. Good venue. Food ok but nothing special. Service poor. Was asked if we wanted bread and olives, we said yes but nothing came.

    Didn't realise it was all below ground so no windows or natural lighting but it didn't detract from the overall experience.

    Excellent meal, quick and friendly service, delicious dessert dish with baked plums and sour cherry sorbet. We were in a bit of a hurry and were impressed by the speed with which the courses came

    A work colleague took me to Orso three years ago and it is the only restaurant I book a table at when in Covent Garden. The ambience and staff are excellent. The food is good but the main course, in my experience, has never lived up to the starter which are always very good.

    Everything was wonderful. We were there the night before running the London Marathon so we were looking for some carbs, all the food was lovely and the service was great!

    aura of private dining while maintaining a cosy family friendliness.
