Quite close to the Alaska Center of Performing Art and the City Hall, the Orso Ristorante serve Italian food, bringing a little bit of Europe to this cold country. The place has a nice ambiance, with a great and friendly staff who are happy to serve you. The food is more than excellent, we loved our chicken parmesan and the orso chop chop salad. The carrot cake dessert was absolutely delightful!

We dined at the restaurant several evenings and we always went home very satisfied. I highly recommend the place!
