Very Consistent Food..so a regular stop for us

We really like Orzo. It can get crowded and loud and is limited in what it offers children. Saying that the food is consistently good (pastas and Mediterranean fare). Decent wines available. Service is normally efficient and timely.

I took my husband here for a birthday celebration tonight and it was perfect! Service was excellent, food was delicious, and the atmosphere was just great for a nice quiet dinner together. First time here, but won't be our last!

Stopped here somewhat accidentally on our way into Charlottesville and had a delicious lunch - we all loved the hummus and toast. Our two teenage boys loved the rigatoni with meat sauce and burger. The Italian Mac and cheese and chicken caesar were a hit too!

My wife and I live across the river from Manhattan while our friends live across the river from DC... Imagine our surprise when we traveled to Charlottesville and found a restaurant that rivaled our two home towns! Orzo Kitchen & Wine Bar did just that... First the atmosphere is wonderfully eclectic, modern and warm. From where you dine you can... More

wonderful local farm to table restaurant, had a great meal, ordered the spinach ravioli made in house, with mushrooms. My boyfriend had the pan seared steak. Food was great, service was great, and reasonably priced. Great value. They also are a wine bar, by the way. Wasn't in the mood for wine at the time having visited a few wineries... More

We went on a scorching hot day and had a relaxing and delicious lunch with our kids. We had salads, sandwiches and pasta and loved them all. The iced tea was particularly refreshing and our server was a star. Loved it.

IT WAS FANTASTIC! A flat iron steak to die for! Entrees start at $17.00. A wide assortment of beers and spirits with a full bar. The service was prompt and well informed. Smiling faces and good wait staff goes a long way with me during my dining experience. The only negative we found, the restroom is out the back door... More

Whether solo, a couple or similar to our most recent visit with friends, we have not ordered anything on the menu that was not delicious. The rest of our party would agree. I would not hesitate to order the salmon with risotto again. Say yes to the Linguini & Clams, Italian Pancetta, Parsley, White Wine, Garlic Butter, or Risotto “Primavera”,... More

This was our 3rd time eating at Orzo, and we were not disappointed. To start your evening they have a nice bar for you to have a pre-dinner cocktail or glass of wine. They attract a nice University type crowd, Professors as well as students, all of whom dressed nicely, no jeans or tie shirts! They have an extinctive wine... More
