Recommended by locals as we were going to the theater nearby. Delightful Octopus appetizer and then scrumptious pastas. Charming restaurant with attentive staff. We will dine here on our next visit to NYC.

We travel on business to New York every year, and have been enjoying Orso for at least the past 25 years. The menu may change daily, but for as long as I can remember, it's been the Calf's Liver that's ended up on my plate. For years, it arrived with crispy onions and pine nuts. That has changed, but they... More

Orso is a very well known Italian restaurant in the theater district. It came very highly recommended and it met all my expectations. Congenial, efficient staff and a welcoming, intimate atmosphere. Fantastic pasta dishes and an excellent wine list. Top-notch all the way.

Orso has evolved from a hot spot to one with very good food, warm service, and a friendly welcome. It iis frequented by a knowing clientele and the occasional reader of travel and food sites who don't get what makes it appealing. So the quiet conversation that transpires over good food is shattered when someone chomping on her salad shouts... More

Great little Italian restaurant close to the theaters. Delicious plates to share family style. The artichokes and fave bean salad were our table of six favorites. We also shared the margarita pizza, buffalo mozzarella and small portions of the pasta dishes.

We stumbled upon Orso our first night in the city. Fortunately they could seat us as their reservations were all after shows ended. It has a great energy - not noisy and the food not only has great presentation but tastes even better!

A very nice little place with great food and very nice staff. The quail was very good. Rigatoni was perfectly cooked. The pizza bread is a must and the side of greens and cannelini beans were off the hook delicious.

We love the pizza, the caprese salad, the risotto, the pasta, the fish. And it's fun to have an occasional celebrity sighting.

I dined on a Monday evening and have been told that this was a good choice. However, when the theatre goers vacate this restaurant, THAT is a good time every night and you should have no difficulty getting a table until they come back after the show. The food is expertly cooked and well presented. My Liver and bacon by... More

We selected this restaurant based on recommendations from the staff at a nearby B&B, our hotel for a 5 night visit of NYC. The service and the food were exceptional. My wife selected the roasted beets and pears starter while I chose the house salad; both were very good and very fresh. For the main course, my wife chose the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
