THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Orso Restaurant Review

: With its bushy ficus trees and rustic Italian stucco walls, Orso's patio is pleasant, and a good setting for al fresco dining. The interior, with its warm woods and soft angles, is also comfortable though often noisy. We like Orso's pizzas with their crisp, crackly crusts---or the pizza bread alone---as well as the pastas, the mixed seafood grill with saffron risotto and the sautéed sole with wilted spinach and roasted mushrooms. Try a side of white beans, roasted shallots and rosemary. The menu changes daily, though. Service can be slow, but hey, if you're seated on the patio on a balmy night, you probably will feel as if you have all the time in the world
