We dined at Orso after the theater. Our server came to us promptly and was attentive and sweet the entire night. Their bread with bean dip is a good accompaniment to the meal. We started with the arugula, grape and apple salad which was delicious....More

We love Orso's and make it a point to always go when in NYC. (It's a short & easy walk from Broadway.) You will need reservations--it's a small, cozy place. The food is delicious--be sure to save room for the Tartufo dessert (an Italian ice...More

Great Italian food. Try the brick oven pizza as an appetizer. The wine list is excellent. They have the service to get you finished and out in time for the show. Walking distance to all the major shows. Thought the entrees were a little pricy

This is a cozy, comfortable place to have a great meal in between your Times Square or Broadway activities. Most of the patrons were casually dressed adults, but we were there with our teenagers and preteen kids. They thoroughly enjoyed it. The culinary highlights were:...More

Charming restaurant - a firm favourite with many New Yorkers. Booking essential - this place can be busy due to show traffic from nearby Broadway.
