Spaced out tables and wait staff wearing masks. We felt very safe, plus the usual excellent food we’ve gotten there before.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. This is the only place where my kids love the pizza so much that they eat the whole thing!

Very noisy. The food and service were good but it’s a very warehousey feel. Without any carpet or any other soft surfaces to absorb the noise we had trouble hearing ourselves converse

Great as always! Our waitress was very friendly and attentive. Pizza was a bit thicker/doughier than I remember but that didn't stop me from devouring it. Love the crust flavor. Tried the cherry crostada and it was SO good. And if you go hungry, the food comes out in no time so no long waits! Plus, the wine is super affordable which is nice given it's double most places in the area.

I took a colleague here for a low key casual lunch. Perfect choice - we shared a Caesar salad and a pizza. Both delicious. Servers were friendly & attentive. I’d go back.

We've been coming here since they opened in 2010, and it's never disappointed. Hands down the best pizza in Virginia.

Quite the neighborhood joint. Looking for a genuine pizza cooked in a brick pizza oven. This is the place for you.

I turned out not to need a reservation for the plentiful outdoor seating at lunch during the week. I had made one just in case. I was glad to find such good pizza together with a safe, comfortable place to eat it. The restaurant also seemed to be sufficiently staffed with professional restaurant workers, something more of a pleasant surprise than an expected condition during the pandemic.

Food/service was great, as always, but the only reason I didn't provide a higher rating was because I was surprised that they didn't have wheat pasta options available. Given the healthier orientation that more and more diners are pursuing, having these options available is more important now and would have been an option we would have pursued if available.

We had an awesome time at Pizzeria Orso. Our server, Chris, was phenomenal! The food was very special — unique, tasty, and fresh. It’s a casual local family spot but it was perfect for a low-key date night. We’ll definitely be back again soon!

Our Margherita DOC pizzas were sensational, as were our chopped Italian salads. Our server was attentive and informative, offering a taste-test of a wine and letting us know that smaller salad portions were available, although not on the menu. We dined outside on a pleasant evening, so the whole experience was great.
