This was a great fine in downtown Anchorage! The food was wonderful... we had soup and bread from the appetizer menu and it was superb. The service was excellent and the atmosphere was pleasant. Prices are reasonable and we will be back!

Orso was a very good venue to go to dinner with a fairly large size party while on a recent trip to Anchorage. I had a great steak that was a special and enjoyed it very much. Not the fastest service in the world but friendly and they have an extensive wine list to compliment any dining choice.

First I'll start with the fact that we showed up 20 minutes early and they were friendly and accommodating in getting us a table. The waiter was very knowledgeable and extremely nice. I enjoyed a tall glass of Mascato with our appetizer (sampler) loved the calamari! My boyfriend ordered some sort of steak and it was good, but even after... More

Don't believe everything you read. Service was very good. Much better than expected. Appetizer menu was too. I was served within 15 minutes of ordering food. Sitting at the bar was great, except whoever..designed the place failed to leave enough room for the walkways. But deal with it. Its worked for many years now. At Happy hour prices I left... More

The bar area is huge and offers full service menu. Every employee I made contact with was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. King crab corn dogs?! Never in a... More

My wife and I and our friends enjoyed this magnificent seafood restaurant. Our waiter was very professional and new the menu very well and gave us some great suggestions. We all ordered fish with a calamari appetizer. One of the best calamari's I've every had!!! I would highly recommend. Parked right behind the restaurant for a small fee.

Last night, my husband celebrated his 40th birthday at Orso. It was very easy for me to call and reserve a table for 12, a couple of weeks beforehand. Our waiter, Brian, was friendly, and knowledgeable. He moved at a good speed, for having our big top and a couple of other tables. He made sound recommendations when we were... More

We strolled restaurant row in Anchorage and Orso's outside drew us in for a late night dinner. Colin, our server, was very attentive. It was close to the end of the cruise season but only an hour from closing so it was busy but not overcrowded. We both had the caesar salads, which were excellent. Spouse had the chicken fettuccine... More
