Everything about the pizzaEverything about the pizza here is terrific. Since I live an hour from Pizzeria Orso, I don't get to go there very often. My favorite dish on the menu - the fried brussel sprouts. I had talked about them so much that my dining companions were salivating waiting to try them. The bad news - they were out of them at lunch time :( on May 16 and were preparing a new batch. Our waiter offered some tempting alternatives and the cauliflower appetizer was good, but it did not make up for the disappointment over the brussel sprouts. The pizza did not disappoint. Delicious!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Trendy Gourmet-ish Style PizzariaLove this place! The staff are all very friendly & helpful, and seem quite knowledgeable about the menu - always a good thing! There were five of us & we shared 4 appetizers - not your typical huge starters found in casual dining. They're actually just right for one person, MAYBE two; all were delicious - tator tots, meatballs, pork belly, & mini pasta carbonara. We also shared 3 pizzas - Italian style, i.e., individual size, but definitely enough for two to share - they were great & flavorful - everything is fresh for all their dishes. I seem to recall that on our previous visit, the pizzas were even better! This time we tried The Tommy Boy, Capricciosa, & the Toscana.
Already looking forward to our next visit - going for the mussels!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Pizza With a Smile . . .Good food, great service. What more can you ask for? The pizza is "different," in a good way. This is not your Mom's pizza. These guys use the best ingredients available and they are not afraid to let the dough crust "bubble" in the oven. This makes for a crispier pizza and the olive oil just oozes down the slices. The portions on other dishes are sensible, not overflowing. Our waiter, Michael, was fun, polite, and he knew the various daily dishes well.
We'll go back, for sure.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNo surprises -- everythingNo surprises -- everything good, food, ambience, wait staff, etc.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWill Artly is currently oneWill Artly is currently one of the best chefs in NOVA. While you may come to ORSO for some of the best pizza in the area, the small dishes are incredible. Will's cooking really shines with seasonal ingredients, intense flavors and an ability to be creative. The service is outstanding, and leave room for dessert.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome place, while the pizzaAwesome place, while the pizza is divine , the small plates stand out and the entrees are solid.

As usual, food, ambience, wait staff, etc. excellent. It won't be long before I return.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMVery impressed with new menuVery impressed with new menu and quality and range of dishes. Started with pork cheek ravioli and pork belly - both melt-in-your mouth perfect. Entrees were the roast chicken and Orso pizza - same quality of ingredients and wonderful flavor (they ran out of the short ribs). Ended with tiramisu and brownie sundae. Unfortunately they ran out of the lemon glazed donuts, too - so looks like we'll have to go back for the ribs and the donuts. Wednesday is half price wine bottle night so that was definitely an added bonus for us. Highly recommend this restaurant. Kudos to the host and the wait staff - very attentive and gracious.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMPizzeria Orso is a terrificPizzeria Orso is a terrific up-to-date restaurant, offering small plates and pastas as well as pizzas. The wait staff always manages to welcome you, remembers you have been there before and just go out out to make you feel welcome and want to come back -- which I most assuredly will.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBrussels chips were AMAZING.Brussels chips were AMAZING.
