Dining at Orzo

Located in historic downtown Charlottesville, Orzo Kitchen & Wine Bar channels the warm and gracious spirit of the Mediterranean through its food, wine, art and service.  Enjoy our fresh seasonal menu as well as our many wines by the glass and unique craft cocktails. In addition to your Orzo perennial favorites, we invite you to discover our Passport Menu, a special collection of new dishes exploring a different region of the Mediterranean each month. 

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.

Our dining rooms are open from 4:00 to 9:00 PM daily, and we continue to offer Curbside Pickup. Reservations are recommended and are available up to two weeks in advance. Patio and Bar seating is first come first serve. We require a credit card for reservations of 5 or more.

Thank you so much for supporting Orzo, our valued team members, local farmers, and purveyor partners.  We cherish our friendships, community, and connection here in Charlottesville. We look forward to celebrating with you soon!
