This is a must eat at for dinner, but have reservation. The King crab corn dogs were the best and most unusual appetizers I have had in a long time. The seafood as you would expect was wonderful, with the seafood mac and cheese bake was great. Again this is a must eat at restaurant.

We stopoed in here for dinner and loved the place. The service was great and the crab legs, silver salmon and pasta were fabulous.. Prices are in line with similar places in town. Its rated as one of the top places in town and I agree..

My husband and I visited the Orso for our Anniversary dinner. We weren't disappointed. We had a seafood chowder for an appetizer, which was delicious. My husband had the rockfish stuffed with crab and I had the filet of beef. Neither one of us was disappointed in any way. We thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere.

We celebrated the first night of our honeymoon at Orso. It was a Monday, but with its popularity it was completely booked! The staff was really accommodating at seating us at a nice table, and giving us some extra attention since it was our honeymoon. My husband's meal was great but I didn't think the King Salmon was cooked very... More

Worth waiting in the bar for a table. They make a delicious elderflower martini! The "small plates" are not particularly small! But excellent - and make good leftovers! We definitely recommend .

We were looking for something light and this turned out to be perfect. Good choice of small plates and we caught it during happy hour ( one early and one late). Waitress was very good and took time to share information about Anchorage with us.

Popularity of this place left us to find a place to eat in the Bar, which turned out to be enjoyable thanks to good food and company. Full service menu offered good choices, service was quick, bartenders were lively and talkative, we would return next time in town.

We took my in-laws to Orso because we knew it would be a nice meal, a little "higher end" dining experience, where-this is key- we would be able to have a good conversation and hear each other! So many restaurants are loud with hard surfaces and unfinished ceilings! My father in law doesn't hear very well and we wanted the... More
