New Year's Eve Dinner: 4 Courses for $50/person plus drinks, tax and gratuity.
Nice spot for a fresh healthy lunch. And most amazing hummus on the planet.
Our server was outstanding! Knowledgeable beyond necessity and extremely friendly. It was my girlfriend and I’s anniversary and we were very pleased with the whole ordeal. The food was amazing and different - plus loads of wine options to compliment each dish. The owner came by and chatted with us multiple times and we got to learn about the history of the restaurant as well as stories to add to the excitement. We have already planned our next reservation and are already looking forward to going back!!
Gnocchi dish was beyond fabulous, and so was the rosemary cake with lemon curd. We’ve been here several times— orzo is always great!
Delightful place - delicious food and creative selection! Loved the ambience! A great find during our trip to cville.
Easy, consistent, pleasant
Amazing food from start to finish with excellent wine pairing recommendations!
Very good food and Todd was Avery attentive server. Wine was terrific and so we're desserts. All aspects above standards.
Very nice overall. However the neighboring table was rather loud and this hampered our ability to hold a good conversation.
We went with another couple on new years eve and had a great experience. Our server didn't come see us right away, but he made up for it throughout the night. The food was excellent, wine recommendations were spot on, and they were very accommodating to my dietary restrictions.
The food here was outstanding, and the service was great. The setting was not what I was expecting, having already researched the menu and the prices, but it was comfortable. The next table had a large group of very boorish people, but there's nothing they could have done about that.
Everything was excellent! So please to find a restaurant that can accommodate my husband who has a very strict low sodium diet. They were very attentive with every detail. The Duck is superb as well as the Spaghetti Pomodoro!
Amazing food, drinks and service.
Our first time at Orzo. Appetizers were just okay and definitely not worth the price, hence the three star rating in that category. Had the seared Greek Halloumi cheese and the olive oil poached tuna. We expected the tuna to be moist & silken but instead it was very dry - we even asked for some olive oil to add it was so dry. However, the entrees were outstanding! Had the Bolognese and the Lamb Shank with Israeli couscous. Both were authentic and absolutely delicious. We also shared the olive oil & rosemary cake with lemon curd & whipped cream - another winner! We could have eaten multiple slices.
One last comment...the staff could be more welcoming at the door and more friendly overall.
Orzo never disappoints:-)
Attentive service, excellent bread/hummus, wonderful menu, decent wine list.
We go back often for the gnocchi, salads and soups.
Extremely rude wait staff. Food was ok, nothing terribly impressive. Dessert was good, however. I wouldn't go again because the waitress was so unpleasant and was visibly annoyed with every request.
We had a wonderful dinner! Amazing food, perfect service.
ALWAYS WONDERFUL FOOD, CHANGING MENU WITH SEASONS......ONLY NEGATIVE, HARD TO HAVE CONVERSATION WHEN FULL
I love Orzo. It is our go to restaurant, for when we want a delicious meal in an intimate and cozy setting and in our neighborhood. I love that it is not a chain. It has wonderful art. The food is always imaginative and delicious but I keep going back to my old favorites!!! I can't recommend it highly enough.
Food was great. Service (from Todd) was prompt, courteous, and professional. This was my first visit to Orzo. Suspect there will be many more in my future.
We had dinner at Orzo on Christmas Eve. The menu options were varied and our group made choices from throughout what was offered. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the relaxing atmosphere. This might become our yearly tradition!
One of the best meals we have had in Charlottesville. Food, service were all exceptional.
We had Christmas Eve dinner with a four course fixed price menu. They had a very wide ranging wine list that was excellent. They always have two local beers on tap and numerous other choices and bottles. A variety of dishes was offered under each category. We each got different things that were all delicious. The service was very efficient and friendly and we did not feel like we were being hurried. It was a lot of food for a reasonable price. I highly recommend Orzo for any occasion.
We dined on Christmas Eve and it was packed! They had a fixed-priced menu which had wonderful offerings. We were very impressed with the service and food. Despite the crowd, everything seemed well organized and they had plenty of staff to ensure that everyone was attended to properly. Our meals were perfectly executed and the courses were very well spaced. I highly recommend this restaurant. We have eaten there a fair amount of times and it never has been anything short of wonderful.
Farro island salmon was divine!!! Perfectly cooked and wonderfully fresh. Had puréed cauliflower with it. Just fabulousEverything was delicious. Server was a little inattentive. Our only complaint.
Excellent service and the consistently excellent food. Same for wine list. Orzo is as sure a bet as there is for a great meal. We
Very pleasant atmosphere, good food and wine. Wish there were more individual tables, less of a communal seating arrangement.
Great drinks, lamb shank, bolognese and squash soup! One of the best meals we’ve had in Charlottesville.
Consistently excellent quality food - delicious. Super friendly staff. Great menu - love it!!!
My favorite feature in a restaurant is to enjoy unique or unusual combinations of ingredients. We ordered a few items from the menu which were entirely unfamiliar to us and were 100% thrilled with the preparation and presentation. Trust the chef and eat here.
We've dined at Orzo a number of times, and it never disappoints. Food, service, and ambience are great.
We love Orzo. We took out of town friends. It was perfect. The food was delicious. The service was great. Everything is perfect.
Great restaurant—delicious food and wonderful service!!
The experience was great we really enjoyed the food very well then I had salmon and it was cooked perfectly and great flavor my wife had gnocchi and it was also spectacular. Drink selection was good only liquor and wine service was fantastic and Lloyd's level was moderate seeing as how we went right around dinner time
The Gnocchi was the best pasta dish I have ever had. Wine recommended by our server was a perfect pairing. We were sat in the bar area- would have loved to have been in the dining room as we were celebrating an anniversary! My hubby had steak which was also good but obviously this place isn’t a steak joint
Service and food was A plus
Celebrated my wife’s birthday with family and friends. The experience was AWESOME and food was even better. I will definitely be going back. I travel for my work and eat out all of the time. Best lamb chops I have ever eaten.
I can’t believe that I had never dined here before now. I will definitely return now that I’ve discovered this wonderful little restaurant. Wine, food, service and atmosphere all were great.
Always a fabulous experience at Orzo!
Lunch with a friend - good food and value, quiet conversation.
Went for lunch not dinner so that could explain the food. Food wasn't as good as expected however the service was good and the inside of the restaurant itself was nice
