    L'Orso 80: A must do restaurant

    The main course

    Although this is termed a Seafood restaurant it has an extensive menu and none of the party I was with chose a seafood option the antipasti were enough to make us full but it just kept coming the food is sooo good that you find yourself having to eat it, you will definitely want to go back, and I will definitely revisit. Closed on a Monday.

    Favorite Dish: I couldn't pick it is all fantastic

    L'Orso 80: Pasta in Mushroom Sauce

    by nicolettart Written Jun 6, 2003

    Favorite Dish: If you love mushrooms, you must order the pasta con la cremolata di porcini--porcini mushroom sauce. The first bite brought tears to my eyes--it was that good. The pasta was so fresh, I've never had anything like it!

    L'Orso 80: Ask for Antipasto for 2!

    They will bring every conceivable vegetable in season, as well as prosciutto, buffalo mozzarella, meatballs, olives, just to name a few. The veggies were the best--grilled eggplant, fried zucchini flowers, cauliflower, artichokes. I think you get the idea.

    P.S. No highchair for the baby.

    L'Orso 80: Roman Food for a Large Group

    by TRimer Written Sep 11, 2002

    Group Dinner

    L'Orso 80 is famous for it's amazing Roman dishes. If you're in a group, just ask them to send out as many appetizers as you think you want to try. They'll fill your table(s) with some of the most incredible dishes you've ever seen.

    Favorite Dish: You must try the antipasta. A rainbow of vegetables came on one platter: The spectrum of flavors ranged from the tangy acidity of vinegary mushrooms and cauliflower with capers to the mellow creaminess of fresh mozzarella balls, to the anise bite of sliced fresh fennel bulbs. There was also crispy fried eggplant and a variety of roasted vegetables: zucchini stuffed with parmesan cheese, red peppers filled with pesto and marinated hot peppers.

    L'Orso 88: L'Orso 88

    by anne_h Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We read about this place in Sandra Gustafson's fabulous Cheap Eats book, in which she recommends the antipasti. If you get it, make sure you're there with a lot of people--they must bring out about 10 plates of things like artichokes, red peppers, fresh mozzarella...it's all amazing but a bit much for only 2 people! I don't even remember what our primi and secondi were--the antipasti obliterated it all. L'orso means 'bear,' but I don't know what the 88 is for.

    Favorite Dish: the antipasti
