Recently visited Orso on a trip back to Manhattan and it was like stepping back in to an old, familiar haunt. Fun pre-show or post show spot for dinner and or drinks. A mix of tourists and locals; you may even have a Broadway celebrity...More

Nice ambiance. The staff was very thoughtful in how they dealt with two mix-ups. The food was delicious and the dessert was way better than expected.

Service and ambiance only matched by the absolute best pasta ever, better than any I had in Rome, Tuscany, etc!!! Gelato for dessert was good too.

For years this was my favorite go-to place pre and post theater. Now it feels like a bus and truck tour variation on a NY theater restaurant. Pros--the staff, always friendly and helpful Cons--the food, linguine with clam sauce was average to mediocre, Steamed mussels...More
