One of our all time favorites... also, besides pizza they have the best fish dishes in town area.

I turned out not to need a reservation for the plentiful outdoor seating at lunch during the week. I had made one just in case. I was glad to find such good pizza together with a safe, comfortable place to eat it. The restaurant also seemed to be sufficiently staffed with professional restaurant workers, something more of a pleasant surprise than an expected condition during the pandemic.

Food/service was great, as always, but the only reason I didn't provide a higher rating was because I was surprised that they didn't have wheat pasta options available. Given the healthier orientation that more and more diners are pursuing, having these options available is more important now and would have been an option we would have pursued if available.

We had an awesome time at Pizzeria Orso. Our server, Chris, was phenomenal! The food was very special — unique, tasty, and fresh. It’s a casual local family spot but it was perfect for a low-key date night. We’ll definitely be back again soon!

Our Margherita DOC pizzas were sensational, as were our chopped Italian salads. Our server was attentive and informative, offering a taste-test of a wine and letting us know that smaller salad portions were available, although not on the menu. We dined outside on a pleasant evening, so the whole experience was great.

Food was fantastic across the board. They were a bit understaffed for the lunch rush - just one server. The manager pitched in, but they were definitely in the weeds.

This had been our favorite place for pizza before the pandemic. This was our first time back. They skipped on ingredients. The sangria had no fruit in the wine. The beet salad used the hard centers of the lettuce head. The Margharita pizza was short on basil. The coffee was weak. The cannoli was good.

Orso never disappoints. Great food for main courses, pizza, or could even do mezze style. Kids menu if they want. Great desserts as well. Outdoor seating area is pleasant.

This was our first time at Pizzeria Orso in over a year and a half. Unfortunately, the food has gone downhill. The appetizers (calamari, meatballs, and riceballs) all needed salt. The pizza was undercooked, soggy, doughy, and needed salt. On the plus side, the tables were nicely distanced, and the server was excellent. However, because of the food, we won't be going back anytime soon.
