Dining at Orzo

Conveniently located in historic downtown Charlottesville, between the University of Virginia and the Downtown Mall, Orzo Kitchen & Wine Bar channels the warm and gracious spirit of the Mediterranean, in its food, wine, art and service.

Founded by veterans of the restaurant industry of Northern California and Charlottesville, our kitchen focuses a modern lens on classic recipes of Italy, Spain, Greece and the South of France.  Featuring an ingredient driven cuisine, a thoughtfully selected wine list, and a professional service team, Orzo is at once a casual neighborhood gathering place and a serious dining experience.
