We dined at Orso twice whilst staying in Anchorage. Both times the service was friendly and attentive. The meals were nice but not outstanding. We enjoyed trying different drinks from the restaurant's extensive range. All in all, we'd recommend dining at Orso.

It's a nice place for dinner. Quite, good atmosphere, service is good and fast. The food was very nice specially for fish. The only thing not very good is the price: a bit expensive.
