We stopped here before catching Amtrak. It was a fairly crowded Saturday evening, but they got us in without reservations. The drinks (Sangria and a Churchill) were well prepared. Our 7 year old wanted steak, but they don't have much of a children's menu. He ended up eating an adult streak and enjoyed it. We had the salmon pasta special... More

We always enjoy going to Orzo for dinner. The food is always spectacular and the service is just as good. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Charlottesville. Located downtown and a 5 minute walk to UVA's campus.

We went up for a UVA game. The food was good, but it wS really busy and we had to sit at the bar. The bar tender was great, but the host... Not so much.

Despite its size and somewhat casual front end demeanor, this is a surprisingly well appointed and well-tended dining room that pushes into the classy range with little fuss and effort. Immediate seating, drink orders, menus, and helpful pointers pinpointed vegetarian as well as cod, chicken, and (my) brined pork chop dinner orders, replete with great reds and whites from across...

We had a casual family dinner for a nice restful time. The staff went out of the way to assure our comfort and enjoyment. The Restaurant did fill to what looked like capacity but there was no rush on our party. The menu is diverse not necessarily vegetarian friendly but they try. Wine selection is fine and a bit more...

I enjoyed this restaurant very much. We ate there on a Friday night and some of the items on the menu were brand new for the season. Very diverse wine menu. Great place for couples out for a dinner date.
