We had a very pleasant, romantic dinner at L'orcio. Parking was very easy, in a special lot across the street with spots reserved for restaurant patrons. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious. We chose items from the special menu, and seemed to be a good decision. We also enjoyed the very appropriate wine list and chose a lovely Italian...

We were early walk-in's on the weekend, and directed to seats at the empty bar. Wine by the glass is reasonable with good selection. We shared our meals of beet & arugala salad which was very fresh with large, thin slices of a good aged parm, and 2 entrees. Parppadelle ragu portion was very large, pasta had a bit too... More

I went here Tuesday evening with friends. I had the spinach ravioli; others had the broccoli rabe ravioli. The food was amazing, and the waitstaff were attentive...treated us like royalty. I will definitely be back.

Second time here.we had reservations for 4 on a Wednesday night. We arrived on time and were told the only available table was upstairs. We were the only ones seated in a large old fashioned room. The whole time there were only 2 other tables filled. It felt isolated... The salads were good. Branzino good, veal topped with tons of... More

We were given this restaurant as a recommendation from the couple sitting next to us in a bar a few blocks away. Thank you nice people!! They seated us immediately, the waitstaff was very solicitous, and omg the food! I had the ravioli in sage butter and my friend has the salmon and gnocchi. Absolutely delicious, perfectly sized portions -... More

Arrived for our reservation and the table was ready, service was spot on with a lovely young waitress who knew just the right amount of checking on us and leaving us alone. We had the flatbread, which is not so fly and tasty (my guy liked it more than I did, but I enjoyed it too). He ordered a specially... More

What a find! After leaving our first choice for dining due to it being closed for a function we happened upon L'Orcios - lucky us! We sat outside in their garden and enjoyed a lovely meal. Service was on point, food was above average and so flavorful, wonderful wines, can't wait to go back!

Nice Place. Relaxing. Great pasta. My husband's steak was so tender he could cut it with the butter knife. Service was good too. Wonderful on a summer night. The inside is nice but does not compare to being in the garden.
