Been dinning at Orzo since it first opened. Orzo unlike other local eateries continue to improve, improvise and impress. You won’t rehret this choice ever!!!
It’s my Mom and my got to choice for Our monthly Mom and Son lunch dates.
Our waiter Todd was excellent and very accommodating enjoyed our food and wine!
This was our second time dining at Orzo's. On both occasions the food and service were outstanding.
Restaurant was FREEZING and management refused to adjust. Multiple tables around ours were wearing coats. Food was bad- overly salty burrata dish, rancid-tasting roasted garlic soup, poor wine selection by the glass.
wonderful food! great service. worth a lovely night out.
Good enough, but we weren't wowed. The service was weird. The waiter had the smarmy "announcer" voice where he makes everything he says sound completely insincere. He was also very slow and inattentive. The specials of garlic soup and salmon salad were the worst things we had. The soup had a bitter undertone that was very unpleasant. The salmon salad was totally boring, especially the dressing that the waiter raved about. Everything else was good. But the outstanding part was the fresh baked break from the bakery next door. I would recommend getting at least a whole one to enjoy, if not more!
Orzo is a GREAT Restaurant! The food is outstanding, high quality, well prepared and reasonable in price. The ambiance is casual but warm and the wait staff is superb- as good as one can find- any place! I highly recommend Orzo.
Orzo is one of our favorite restaurants. They have always been able to handle a couple or a party of 16 with grace and ease, and their wine list is great.
We were coming in from out of town and running late, I changed my reservation to later time but didn't realize it was on different date! Not only did they still get us seated right away, they helped me edit the reservation so I could still get my Open Table points! Still the best was yet to come, we ordered the risotto, pasta bolognese and apps. Everything was delicious! My youngest daughter is vegan and they had delicious options for her too!! The vegan mashed potatoes were so yummy we all ate them!! Can't wait to go back again!
Reunion with college friends.
Will definitely choose Orzo again! The service was exceptional and the food was so delicious! I was especially happy to learn they had a vegan menu option with wonderful choices.
Orzo is a great place for lunch or dinner. Dining out on the patio when the weather warms up is something to look forward to despite traffic fumes. It's our favorite restaurant. The cuisine is creative and attractively presented.
Lovely local restaurant . Food different from the usual fare. Staff charming.
When someone asks me what I want to eat and I say "I don't know, something TASTY," the burrata is what I mean.
Always happy for a delicious dinner at Orzo!
Service was excellent. Caesar salad very nicely don. Pasta great. Loved the Panne Cota.
Shared the beet salad and cod with mussels. Food was attractive and delicious!
We had a 7:30 reservation but came at 7:15 because our train arrived several minutes earlier than scheduled. We were greeted very warmly and immediately seated at a very nice table in front of a very colorful painting of our favorite Barcelona! The waiter was very helpful,friendly, and attentive. My wife and I loved our seafood dishes, which were prepared perfectly.
Had dinner at Orzo this weekend. As has happened over and over at Orzo, we had terrific food, great service and enjoyed ourselves very much. We brought out-of-town friends with us and they were very impressed.
Excellent food as usual. Service is attentive but not hovering. The vegetarian in our party was very satisfied as was our steak and potato diner in our party.
Out of MANY visits, only one was even marginally less than great. Love this place and visit as often as any restaurant in Cville. Great food and awesome wine selection!
This is our favorite restaurant in Charlottesville and has been since they opened. Great food and service.
Wonderful meal as usual - our favorite place to dine out in Charlottesville. Started with the tomato fennel soup, which was outstanding - flavors perfectly balanced! We were surprised when co-owner Ken recommended a red wine to accompany our entrees, but he was correct: a white would not have stood up to the flavorful risotto and salmon dishes. One of the owners of Orzo is always present, which we believe accounts for the consistency of the delicious food and friendly ambiance.
Enjoyable experience. Wonderful food. Allowed to linger after we finished our meal.
We are fans of Orzo in general, and our dinner this week lived up to our high expectations when we go there. Our group of four were all more than satisfied with our meals.The tomato soup had a very smooth, smoky flavor; the burrata cheese appetizer got rave reviews from all who tasted it and the roasted beet salad was delicious. All four in our group raved about their entrees. My steak was perfectly cooked with just the right amount of seasoning to bring out the flavor and was served over tasty olive oil mashed potatoes! We shared a tiramisu that was about the best I have ever tasted. Every flavor was distinct but still blended together to be heavenly.
Service was --as always--friendly and efficient.
Outstanding service & limited but wonderful menu. Bolognese so so delicious. We are new to the area & this is going to be one of our regular go to spots.
The food at Orzo is beautifully prepared. We noticed that my steak and my son's duck were both enhanced in such a way that we could really savor the true flavor of the meal. The portions were perfect for us, and we left feeling satisfied. We've been visiting many restaurants this year with the goal of selecting one for a special graduation dinner. We think we've found our ideal spot in Orzo.
went on a Monday night, quiet early on, filled up later. Salmon was wonderful, doesnt come with much just some couscous, could have gotten a salad or mashed potatoes. vanilla panna cotta was wonderful as was the expensive coffee. Nice atmosphere, great server, Emily.
Need to go more often to eat everything!
From the warm welcome, to the superb service coupled with a delicious meal...it was a perfect evening to celebrate with friends! We love Orzo!
I think, in general, it was a good dinner with good service. Nothing special.
Always reliable for good food and some interesting appetizer choices. Definitely my “go to” spot for when I’m craving a good Bolognese sauce with a nice selection of wines.
Orzo has the best food in town. And it applies to everything they make. Even my Caesar salad was exceptional. My entre, the Cioppino, was heavenly. The broth alone was a masterpiece. It had a subtle smokey tomato base with various herbal notes that made me want to lick the bowl after I was finished.
Great Valentines Day dinner. Orzo’s food is consistently delicious and never disappoints!
It’s is our favorite restaurant however the service was not up to par. It was a fixe price menu with very good choices however the servers could not manage to serve them in the correct order or in a timely manner. They usually are excellent, and this is the first time we were disappointed. For such an expensive meal, I expected more- their usual is perfect. Our table was by the front door, and we were so cold throughout our meal. We now wish we chose to go to Orzo on a quiet weekday evening when they have always done a superb job.
Outstanding dining experience! Thoroughly enjoyed the range of food options , coziness, and the attentive waitstaff. Great place to celebrate with a spouse who is your best friend!
We were visiting from Delaware and were looking for a restaurant with some good healthy,Organic Vegetarian options .We Found it and WoW what a great experience lots of menu options and choices of sides dishes . Excellent Fish , Pasta and the Duck was excellent. Will definitely Come back next time in the area........Thanks
I love this restaurant!!!
I always have a great meal at Orzo. It is one of my " go to" restaurants.
Always good-one of my favorite spots in Charlottesville
Good service, dinner was very good, sides were a bit small for the entre size. Quite good deserts.
