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 meal. Nice ambience. Very happy.

    Enjoyed a really good meal before theatre. Had 2 antipasti plates to share between 4, very tasty. Mains of the pork belly and the veal chop were exceptional. Service was a bit slow in a very busy pre-show restaurant but will definitely be back.

    Food was good but waited a long time for it to arrive which meant we had no time for dessert

    Disappointing. A bit old fashioned. Average food.

  • ((((* by from Brighton

    The only reason I scored a low mark for ambience is because we were the only ones in there on a sunny lunchtime when I guess most people would have chosen to eat outside.

  • ((((( by from Hampton

    We had a lovely time as usual. It's very naughty, but the zuccini frite is a great accompaniment to that first glass of fizz.

    Had a lovely pre theatre meal here. Food delicious and reasonable but wine expensive.

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