We went here to celebrateWe went here to celebrate my son's college graduation and Mother's Day. The food was terrific and the service was on point. I would definitely return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGift card delightI bid on a gift card at a silent auction and won. First it's nice to know the LOrcio supports good causes. Food was excellent t and price was fair. Margarita was very good and the wines available by the glass, including prosecco, were of good quality. Atmosphere was very relaxing and most important, not noisy like many other places. I had a fish special that was delicious. I would definitely go there again. It's a little off the beaten path as far as foot traffic in New Haven but there is easy parking in a lot across the street. Another plus. Great spot overall.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistantly good food and serviceI've eaten at L'Orcio a dozen times in the past year. Each time has been a pleasure. The food is consistently very good and the service has always been great. It can get a bit noisy during the typical dinner hours, however if you're in the mood for an energetic environment then you won't mind this at all.
If you want great Italian choices and a comfortable environment you'll definitely want to give L'Orcio a try.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI adore l'orcio. AuthenticI adore l'orcio. Authentic Italian dishes with a modern interpretation. The salmon was to die for4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been wanting to tryI have been wanting to try L'Orcio so went with 2 friends during restaurant week. We had a lovely dinner of appetizer, entree, and dessert; everything was absolutely delicious and the service was superb. Prior to dinner we had martinis at the bar and were seated for dinner right next to it. There were people seated at the bar during our dinner; the noise level was no different and we never even noticed the people coming and going. Definitely a place to go to more often - ambiance was lovely, dress was casual, and pricing was in line with the quality of the food and service. When I return I'll request a table outside, it was a little too chilly when we were there.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMdisappointed that i was tempteddisappointed that i was tempted by two restaurant week specials that you ran out of! but my 2nd choices were as delicious as expected. and marcelo was an excellent server.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service, willGreat food and service, will return soon and often.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely Faboulous...as usualEverything was fantastic as usual!

Our waiter was professional and friendly. We had an early Sunday dinner reservation and noticed that the restaurant quickly filled up by 6:00. The bar was large and warm with exposed brick that added a nice ambiance. Would definitely recommend for a tasty, well-priced meal in lovely surroundings. There is an outdoor patio too that would be perfect in the warmer months.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Cuisine and professionalLorcio always exceeds our expectations for food and sevice.
