Pizzeria Orso

I just returned from here. I had the arrostocini (lamb skewer) and a crudo (prosciutto, arugula and a parm like cheese). It was good. The crust was a little chewy and the toppings were fresh and tasty. The lamb had a good char and was cooked medium. It was not really seasoned, but a wedge of lemon zested it up a bit.

I am thinking that I was underwhelmed due to the fact that I just am not a fan of this kind of pizza. Maybe it is my food-nerd blind spot, but I ate at Pupatella and Orso now in the last week and I doubt I would go back to either. Maybe I would try a sandwich at Orso, they sounded good.

The service at Orso was outstanding by the way. (Unlike the snappy, curt pizza making guy at Pupatella.) The owner (maybe manager, a tall blond woman) walked around to each table and greeted and then asked how everything was afterward. A rare bit of excellence in my opinion. The waitress replaced my silverware after my appetizer. That was also a nice touch.
