Definitely some good stuff here! The wait staff is great and the food is just as good! The tortellini was scrumpt and the queso the bomb! Don't miss out on this place.

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.More

Being in the same location for 50 we have seen the neighborhood come and go. The good news is that I think it has hit bottom and is coming back up. There are a few properties near us that need to be bought and updated....More

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.

Thanks for eating with us for decades! I bought in with the original owner in 1978, and worked the bar from 1978-1982, so I am sure I saw you in the dining room! It's always nice to eat something we ate when we were younger....More

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...More

I am sorry your experience was not up to our high standards. I am not sure why your pasta sauce let off so much grease. Any time you are not pleased with your food please let a manager know and we will make sure you...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.
