From OpenTable: 

Alaskan, warm, inviting, innovative, a menu full of surprises, unbelievable wine list, great cocktails, are common phrases used by our guests to describe Orso. We feature the freshest ingredients available, Alaskan whenever possible- fresh Alaskan seafood, fresh local pasta, and local produce when in season. We prepare them with the simple, rustic flavors and techniques of the great culinary regions of the Mediterranean. Orso’s outstanding service, bold menu, classic cocktails combined with a wine list that has received the “award of excellence” from the Wine Spectator for five years is why ORSO is the “Place to be” for Anchorage dinning.

Upscale Italian, Alaskan Style

Alaskans do it BIG. Orso is a delightful, elegant restaurant in Anchorage’s small downtown area. Everything is covered here, from cocktails to the main dish. There are only a few stereotypical italian menu items, like OssoBucco, but many of the other entree choices have a twist to them that is slightly nouveau. The service in this place is impeccable. The wait staff are friendly and professional. The food is delicious and somewhat expensive, but it is worth the cost.

Dishes I tried:

ahi tuna

If I recall correctly this was ahi tuna, seared, over a bed of cranberry beans in a light broth. It was a revelation in flavor. I much enjoyed it. I’m not sure if this dish is still being served, but I truly recommend everything this restaurant has to offer.

Great food, terrible service

This if by far my favorite place food in anchorage but I get the worst service there. Last time I went there the waitress brought out the wrong order and gave it to me saying, "I know it's wrong" but didn't fix it or apologize. I'm very…
