The restaurant is super chic and with s high level service. Notwithstanding this, the food is not what I define a good Italian quality. Gnocchi were somehow fried and risotto was swimming in the tomatoe sauce and full of garlic. Not sure how much italianità...More

Enjoyable meal in a serene “cool” on a hot summer day (this place has a proper working AC) surroundings, excellent, knowledgeable old-school waiters. Worth mentioning: gazpacho and the smoked salmon were excellent choices!

I really wanted to love Orsini. I was extremely worried when we walked into an empty restaurant, and I should have listened to that voice in my head that told me to turn around and leave. I need to clarify that the service was great...More

I ate dinner here as a solo. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. I asked for low salt, they suggested I taste the gazpacho before ordering it; it was low salt and very tasty. I also ordered veal scalloping with pasta and...More
