We were in Orlando for a wedding and stopped at the lake/park before driving home. It was Small Business Saturday so we looked for a local place to eat brunch in the area. I was in the mood for breakfast items, which this restaurant doesn't feature. However, I ordered a coffee with skim milk to support small business. The server... More

Found this on trip-advisor and was not let down! The pizza was great. The staff was super friendly and the atmosphere was cozy. Also after you eat all that pizza the park is a must see. Take a nice walk around and walk off your meal. Will come back!

The pizza is very good. Thin crispy crust and good quality ingredients make it very yummy. I'm always surprised when it's not busy. Then again when I went yesterday it was one of the hottest days of the year and if you're looking for ambiance you'd want to sit outside so that probably explains it. It's always good food and...

This is the second or third time I've eaten at Metro Espresso, and I will be back. The pizza and salad are always excellent, and in the summer I love to see people sitting outdoors with their dogs. Pasta and garlic knots are also delicious. This is a great place for good food when you don't want to fuss.

This was my second visit to Metro and again food was delicious. The white pizza is also a pleasant surprise for Orlando. Will be trying other items on my next visit.

As we walking around downtown Orlando looking for something to eat, we decided to stop in Metro Espresso. We ordered a pizza and it was good. It's definitely not like your franchise pizza places. Hot, greasy, but good. I would like to try some of the other foods they have to offer if we are in the area again.

Metro Espresso has a decent Italian menu but everyone goes for the pizza. Great late night stop while you are in downtown. The Italian sub is pretty good as well, and there are some affordable Italian wines by the glass. It's nice to be able to sit outside too near Lake Eola.

Up late? Drunk? You need pizza? Ginos downtown with all the other trash that just got out of the bar? Heck no! You head down Central Blvd by Lake Eola and the Publix and you slip into Metro Espresso. I don't even know if they have coffee here. You go for the pizza and more beer to help with your... More
