Experience was excellent.
Food, service and atmosphere were all outstanding.
Will definitely be back soon.
Very enjoyable evening! Service was en point and food was delicious. The rabbit ravioli were extraordinary.
Great service & great food!
Food and drinks was excellent-Service slow-
Overall will return
We came here to celebrate my husband’s birthday and while they never acknowledged that detail, our experience was very nice. We were seated upstairs, which was a little tight. Our meal from start to finish was excellent. We ordered the omnivoro plate and stuffed sardine salad, and for entrees, the vodka gnocci and pappardelle ragu. The one area for improvement would be in the premeal bread they serve. It’s ice cold!
Service a tad slow, but everything else was outstanding as usual
The food at L’Orcio is outstanding. I can actually compare the food to the Italian restaurants in Italy.
The food was excellent. Dessert tasted a little stale. Like it was frozen and thawed. But all of the dinners we had were very good.
This is one of my favorite restaurants, & the bonus is that I live only a few blocks from it. I am never disappointed when I eat @ L’Orcio. This last visit was a real surprise- it was $10 pasta night! One of my favorite dishes there is Butternut Squash Ravioli, so it was a real bargain. All pastas on the menu are $10, & they add a few specials @ that price also. I highly recommend this restaurant & I also recommend making a reservation, as they are usually quite busy!
I have become an almost regular at L'Orchio especially on Tuesday evenings. I have brought guests from our to town who loved their food and the whole dining experience. A great restaurant to get together with friends or to have a romantic dinner for two.
The food was outstanding, the atmosphere lovely and the service impeccable.
I will definitely return.
Delicious, perfect portions and a great wait staff! Can’t wait to return!
Delicious dinner and excellent service
The carpaccio was great as always. For pasta stick to the homemade noodles - you think there isn't that much difference but there is. The veal can be variable but was excellent this evening. Calamari was excellent as usual.
We had the best time!! Our waitress definitely knew her wines and was a huge help selecting our many types. She brought us samples for us to choose as well!! The food was amazing!!
The food was good and the portions were sized just right, where you didn't feel like you were still hungry. The atmosphere is cozy and the service was attentive and pleasant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a date or a nice Italian meal in New Haven. It's not the largest restaurant around, but I like that about it.
Our go to Italian restaurant.
We had an early dinner last Friday and sat with Chris. He was professional and made our dinner special. The food was well timed and delicious. The hosts were thoughtful and friendly, and the dining area was beautifully decorated and struck the right note for ambience. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves very much and will absolutely return.
Great local gem! High quality traditional Italian...
was always...dinner was perfect. There are no better pasta's anywhere in the New Haven area and no better cocktails and daily specials.
Very adorable place. Cozy with great atmosphere.. staff very professional. Couldn’t ask for a better place
The food is always good, but the wait staff (this male the worst) is not at all attentive. We had dishes removed while still eating and he def had an attitude. Three of us are former servers and we all agreed that we’d probably not go back. And we were all “regulars”
L'Orcio never disappoints. This is maybe our 3rd/4th time there and the quality and service is always amazing.
Cozy living room type dining experience. We would return.
Excellent service and well prepared and tasty entrees
We love L’Orcio - we have been going since 2004 and everything is consistently fantastic!
Was disappointed during this visit, food was not as good as in previous visits. Not sure if I will try them back.
Had reservations on New Years Eve. Table was ready when we arrived, service was outstanding, and most important dinner was delicious.
Great food and services
L’Orcio has long been one of our favorites and our recent New Year’s Eve dinner did not disappoint. There were many options, a priz fix three course menu as well as the regular menu, something for everyone. We started with a complementary cup of lentil soup, for good luck, a nice touch. Oysters on the half shell were excellent. All the entrees were enjoyed, but the standout was a veal Osso Bucco over pappardelle! The only negative was a lemon cheesecake which was a bit dry. Stick with the tiramisu. Our server,Chris, was great on a very busy evening.
Food was incredible, I don’t know why I have not been here before. Cocktails were great, pasta was to die for. Great great great!!
Food is delicious, service is fantastic! Will definitely be back!
The best pasta in new haven. Marcelo is a pro at service
I thought our food was good but necessarily over the top. Found the butternut squash ravioli dry, the bread not remarkable; The lemon chicken was delicious but pricey given the portion; I’d say one can do better in the genre honestly.
Outstanding service and food. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Great food in a wonderful setting! Our group had pasta, steak and fish - all great.
The food was excellent and the service was great. My only complaint is that the bread was cold. It sounds foolish but we have found that many times when the bread is cold, the food wasn't very good. It is about attention to details and the customers first impression. This wasn't the case.
Great dining experience! Pasta was wonderful, really enjoyed the charcuterie as well.
A co-worker recommended the restaurant so I asked my wife if we could go for my birthday. It was a wonderful birthday dinner. I have the Mediterranean Salad and Gnocchi al Radicchio Rosso and my wife had Fusilli al Pesto and Insalata Mista. All of the food was delicious and plentiful. My wife had leftovers for lunch the next day. The history of the home and atmosphere made it even more special. We will be coming back.
