Orlando's is always a safe, delicious choice whether dining with friends, family or as a couple. The green chili cheese soup is a favorite menus item. Have eaten here in many occasions and have yet to be disappointed.

Quaint little place with a romantic feel. The food is always good and the menu has several Italian options. My favorite is atomic tortellini! The negative about this place is the location. The area is known for crime. There is security in the parking lot.

Not just the Best Italian food. The best food in town. In the 30 plus years I've been eating at Orlando's I've tried nearly everything on the menu and it's all been good. But the Green Chili Chicken Linguine is still my favorite.

Stuffed manicotti with cheese! The BEST! Have not eaten anything that wasn't great! Great service for a fair price.

What used to be excellent Italian has crashed into the abyss of disaster. 20 years ago this place was awesome. it has a great atmosphere still but that's where it ends. Even their signature pizzas have become middle of the road. My plate of pasta had no less than 4 oz of butter or grease it was laying in. I... More

This place serves food that is usually on the heavier side of things, but oh is it good! It's pricey too, but it's worth it.

My family of three ordered the meat pizza. It arrived hot and looked very delicious. Unfortunately we are not fans of sweet marinara sauce. The pepperoni was crisp and tasty, the Italian sausage was spicy and the Canadian bacon was thick. Its just did not pair well with the sweetness of the sauce and the texture of the white crust...

We go all the time. We are watching our weight right now so we get the cholula chicken Greek salad. It's huge and wonderful and fresh.

I've watched my weight at Orlando's too. I bought in with the original owner in 1978 at 212 pounds and I'm 290 now! I'm also eating the salads trying to lose a few pounds too! It's one of the dangers of getting free pizza anytime I want some. lol More
