This is absolutely wonderful place and perfect if you are in the Covent Garden area. It is very Italian. Wonderful food, excellent service and a really charming ambience. It was my birthday and I was made to feel very special.
what a shame that Orso had to close down after 32 years to make place to a boutique hotel... that was a place where you could have a quick bite before the theatre or opera as well as a full on dinner... the staff was...More
I had been wanting to visit Orso for a long time and the news that it would soon be closed down and replaced with it's sister restaurant - Joe Allen - prompted me to finally book it as a work treat with a colleague.
I was very sorry to hear this long established Covent Garden favourite was closing down because of Robert De Niro's silly hotel development. I paid it a final visit with my friend last week and had another lovely meal there. The cold meat starters and...More
The service was terrible at best. It took over 15mins for anyone to come to our table to ask if we wanted a drink. It took another 20 mis for someone to come back to ask for our order. They never followed up to see...More
I picked this restaurant for a pre theatre dinner, just on spec...bitter sweet that in one week's time it will close... you would have thought that Robert de Niro would have like such a good restaurant beneath his hotel!

As you may or may not have heard through whispers in the stalls,
we’ll be taking our final bow at Orso after 32 glorious years
in the heart of the West End this July.

With so many options in the area Orso stands out and has become our most regularly visited restaurant in Covent Garden. There is good reason why it has been there for so long - the food, the ambiance, the staff and value for money. The...More
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
