Fodor's Review

Upon entering Orso ("bear" in Italian), you'll feel, to a certain degree, as though you've stepped out of Anchorage and into a Tuscan villa. The menu, though, has gradually shifted from its Mediterranean roots, adding Alaskan touches like baked seafood mac and cheese to the selection of traditional pastas, fresh seafood, and locally famous desserts—most notably a delicious molten chocolate cake. Be sure to ask about the daily specials. If you can't get a table at dinner (reservations are advised), you can select from the same menu at the large bar. Upstairs you'll find a cozier, quieter space. For lighter bites or drinks, consider the restaurant's daily happy hour, which features reduced appetizers and drink specials.
