Went with my daughter to celebrate her birthday. The food was very good, but service was quite lacking. We didn’t feel welcome and felt more like we were an imposition. It was a pricy meal to not be treated more kindly.
I was SO excited to come here for my anniversary and have very high expectations. Our appetizers were a bit bland and my pasta dish "norma" which I was SO excited about tasted like Ragu with pasta. Maybe we just got the wrong things but we won't be back.
We’ve been going to L’Orcio for about 10 years and love it there! Excellent food starts with quality ingredients and Chef Francesco d’Amuri uses nothing but the best.
His homemade Tiramisu is life changing!
Ate outside in their lovely garden. Good cocktail list. Start with the erbivario, a delicious assortment of grilled eggplant, zucchini and artichokes, terrific roasted peppers and an herbed ricotta with focaccia. Entrees were perfectly cooked tuna and pappardelle with chicken cacciatore sauce, along with an excellent Gavi by the glass. Outstanding service and value.
We had a very pleasant dining experience. The food was absolutely delicious! Service was excellent. Will definitely be back.
A beautiful outdoor space, very tasty food (big portions!) and a nice wine list.
Get the Charlotte for dessert.
Unfortunately we waited 30 minutes for our reserved table. The food was wonderful as usual! We’ll be back but won’t wait again
Amazing food in great outdoor COVID safe space! I carefully looked for a restaurant with outside seating and L'Orcio did not disappoint.
Courtyard setting is fantastic. Combined with great food and professional service, you have a wonderful dining experience. Will definitely return and recommend to other prospective diners!!
Excellent in every way. We were a group of 3 couples, and we could not have been more pleased. The setting, service and (most importantly) the food were great. We will happily return often.
L’Orcio is now one of my favorite restaurants in New Haven. As someone who’s been working in the service industry for half my life, I’ve visited a lot of establishments and I continued to be impressed by L’Orcio. This was my boyfriend and mines first time out together since COVID started. Our server was Marcelo and he took very good care of us. The restaurant is definitely responsible when it comes to the safety of their patrons. Hand sanitizer is offered upon entry to be seated and outside the restrooms. Our table was also comfortably distanced away from other parties even with the patio at full capacity. We were allowed to eat until our allotted time frame and were not rushed to finish. We were so happy with our dinner. The caprese salad was fresh and homemade pasta and side dishes we ordered were cooked to perfection . the bottle of wine we drank was a tasty, no-headache wine at an ideal price point. And the pistachio gelato was a perfect way to finish the meal! Their outdoor garden is beautiful and very well maintained. This restaurant is definitely worth your money and time. I look forward to returning and highly recommend L’Orcio for your next relaxing night out.
Sat outside. Very comfortable and tables spaced out appropriately. Food and service were very good. Overall very pleasant evening
This was a birthday celebration for our daughter. We were seated at a corner table on the patio (the best seat in the house)! The ambience was spectacular, the waitress was particularly helpful, the specials were out of this world and we didn't feel at all rushed. Each of us had something different from the menu (fish, pasta, veal) and all were excellent! This restaurant will definitely be a "must go again" place when we are next in New Haven.
Everything was absolutely Amazin from appetizers to dinner and of course dessert!
Excellent food because of the quality of the ingredients and of course the Chef! We’ve been going there for years and have never been disappointed.
They're very strict regarding social distancing and wearing face masks when entering and exiting the restaurant. We felt safe eating there and we’ll be going back next month.
Superb service, fabulous food and amazing ambience!
We had a wonderful time celebrating our very good friends 40th anniversary
Food , service , and all the special attention was outstanding thank you so much for making this special occasion so memorable
L'Orcio's is excellent.
I live in Cromwell, so it's a bit of a drive for dinner, but I try to go at least once a year.
Food was amazing, as well as the ambiance and service. Can’t wait to come back!
Always excellent service and food!
We had the best time. No worries about social distancing. Everything was handled with thought and care. The good is always delicious and we weren’t rushed and totally enjoyed ourselves.
Had dinner at L’orcio with my college student daughter and wife. Very good dinner and the pastas were particularly excellent. The chicken scallopine was also good. The tiramisu has a “banana” flavor to it which was quite different. The restaurant is well maintained and well run by a very knowledgeable hostess. The service was a little uneven but friendly. I would definitely dine there again when in new haven.
Was pleasantly surprised to see that L'Orcio has Patio dining even though the inside of the restaurant is still closed. The Patio area is beautiful with widely spaced tables and has a good atmosphere and ambience for conversation. The food was very tasty, and the service outstanding, with waiters coming by every few minutes to inquire if anything was needed, refill glasses, etc. It was good to see a restaurant maintain such quality of service while also taking social distancing and cleanliness so seriously. I felt very safe there as it was obvious the care that L'Orcio takes in making sure there is no COVID transmission risk between patrons or employees.
L’Orcio is is authentic Italian and excels in Florentine cuisine by all appearances. 10 out of 10.
Great food, great outdoor ambiance, highly recommended if you want quality italian
Awesome all around. Food was great. Good service. Enjoyed sitting out in the garden. Will defiantly be back.
It was a great father's day meal experience under the challenging pandemic circumstances. We had to wait a bit for our table, but understandably and not a problem. Drinks and bread were a bit slow to arrive. Otherwise, the service was good and not pushy. The food was delicious and the portions ample. It's not an inexpensive place, but or the quality, well worth it for the special occasion. I've never been disappointed and continue to come back here for fine but not stuffy dining, this time enjoying the great patio.
We had a wonderful evening and left feeling renewed. The food, service, and cocktails were very good. It was refreshing to have so many vegetarian options and not the typical Italian-American menu... despite how much I love those also. Beautiful urban patio for outdoor dining and reasonable prices...
The outdoor patio seating was very nice. Food was excellent as always.
The food in this restaurant is outstanding and the portions and price can’t be beat for Italian food of this high quality. It is like eating in Italy.
Would highly recommend the outdoor seating! Staff was very kind, food was the best that I’ve had since I’ve traveled to Italy. A hidden gem in new haven.
Beautiful outdoor seating area...fantastic food...excellent service. Had a great night and can't wait to go back :-)
Did not disappoint, the meal excellent, the service excellent as we're the cocktails overall a perfect evening, thank you!
Everything was perfect and really appreciated the effort made by the restaurant for the social distancing which made us feel secure. Will return soon!
Excellent as always! Always our go to restaurant for special occasions! Was disappointed when they were closed for Mother’s Day this year but more than made up for it Friday night. Food, drinks, service and ambience amazing once again!! Can’t wait to go back again soon .
I was a little hesitant with all the restrictions during this crazy time, but everything was handled well. We sat outside and the tables were far apart. The food as always was great. And it was very relaxing. Will be going back.
Great food, atmosphere and service. Felt very safe with all of their precautions. Only thing we didn’t like was the plastic knives and paper napkins. Weird because plates and glasses were not plastic or paper.
Excellent meal as usual!! They never fail. The outside garden is beautiful
Wonderful meal, great service, ambiance was fantastic. Pasta was to die for
L'Orcio has always been a favorite of mine, and we visited recently during the pandemic and they did such a wonderful job of keeping the same great dining experience as usual. The outdoor patio is behind the restaurant so it is very peaceful and intimate. The NY strip was one of the best steaks I have had in quite a while. Great experience.
