I had the bianco chicken flat bread...expected a small sandwich...wrong!!...huge portion...enough for two. Staff more than helpful and polite. More business/adult atmosphere/menu.

“Rather Pretentious”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

A rather trendy restaurant destined to attract a wealthier crowd. The steak and fish restaurant was ok but food was rather over-salted.

“Excellent salmon dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

We had just one evening in Anc horage and wanted to experience a true Alaskan salmon dinner. We saw several restaurants and checked with the Anchorage visitor centre which was most suitable. We had seen Orso and it looked good; the visitor centre confirmed this and suggested that we should book a table because it was likely to be full on a Saturday.
This was good advice because, when we returned at 8.00pm the place was heaving with a queue onto the pavement. We had an excellent table with a most efficient and helpful waiter and enjoyed an excellent dinner. The spicy calimari as a starter was beyond good and the salmon which followed was excellent.
A good and fortunate find, very good value for money

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

The Orso was a nice restaurant with a versatile menu. The seafood mac and cheese was very creamy and tasty and the Calamari was tender and delicious.
