In an age when few understand how important light and sound are in restaurant design this was an oasis. Server was relaxed and efficient. Charming without being obsequious and her wine recommendation was spot on. Party of 7 All different all good. Lamb was a little mild for my taste (not grass fed? ). But ap of seafood very good. Pasta tasted home made and we wish there was a little more. Great find for we Locals and visitors

Our. Favorite Cville restaurant- always great food. We had the bruschetta for the first time and it was excellent. Also had the roasted squash salad and the Pei mussels with fresh French bread. The food just gets better and better!

Local food, extensive wine list. Service was friendly, attentive. Food preparation was fine. Food choices are interesting: not bland, emphasizing pasta with limited seafood offerings. Prices are moderate,not cheap.

Orzo has consistently great food, lovely staff, welcoming ambiance, and an amazing wine list. They source many of their ingredients locally and connect with farmers and the community. The owners are present and friendly. What else do you really want? It is our go to place, over and over again.

We had outstanding food, drinks and wine in a warm, gracious environment. The staff were attentive without being intrusive. The owner circulated and made sure plates were removed and water glasses were full. Our waiter, Todd, was wonderful and made it an especially fun and pleasurable experience.

We hadn't been to Orzo for quite awhile. With family in town, we decided to see how the kitchen was going. The 4 of us had a wonderful, tasty and creative dinner. Chef Adam has made tasty changes to the original menu choices. We will return again soon.

My wife and I went to Orzo for a Sunday dinner. We both had the Porcini Coated Rack of Lamb. WOW! It was superb! The lamb chops were large and meaty, and melt-in-your-mouth tender! Absolutely delicious. It was served with farro which we both like. That was also delicious. Paired up with Vino Nobile di Montepulciano - it made for a very memorable meal. Glad we chose Orzo!
Highly recommend it. We'll definitely go there again.

I have been many times on family and business occasions since they first opened, and the experience has never been better. I have never had a bad meal, and they are usually memorably excellent. I am very impressed that one of the two owners, Ken or Charles, has been present every time I have ever been. One of my top two recommendations for restaurants in Charlottesville.

The halumi appetizer and seafood linguini were excellent. They had a good size wine list. We chose a Willamette Valley Pinot noir from Oregon, which paired very nicely with the first two items. The citrus cake was very disappointing, but the tiramisu melts in your mouth.

Food was great, loved the Burrata salad, Bolognese was very good as well, Service was slow, but we had great company so hardly noticed. Loved all the food. This is our go-to place in Charlottesville when there for work.

I am fairly new to Charlottesville and this is my favorite restaurant here by far. The menu is not overwhelming with choices but has something for everyone. I don't think you can wrong by picking Orzo for whatever the occasion might me.

Our waitress was not very friendly overall...had a bit of an attitude. We sat unattended for at least 12 minutes after being shown to our table...then when she came over she was unfriendly. Food was ok...the salad was very good but the main courses were just average. Not unpleasant tasting but just not anything to compel any of us to go back.

Dinner was excellent. Service was very good - really loved it overall. The wine special was good too.
The restaurant was very cold - our server agreed and couldn't explain why. Luckily I had a cover up in the car - otherwise being cold would have ruined an otherwise delicious meal.

This was a beautiful restaurant with great food, but it isn't good for picky eaters. My 19yr old, who wanted a good steak was disappointed with the size of his steak serving. The other 4 adults were thrilled with their meals, however.
