Dive Down The Rabbit Hole With ORSO

ORSO invites guests to follow them down the rabbit hole

To coincide with The Royal Opera House’s production of Alice in Wonderland (running until 16 January 2015), venture downstairs past the ‘enchanted’ olive tree and into ORSO’s subterranean space, for their take on a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Unique surprises and the intriguing Hatter’s Tipple, made with vodka, raspberry liqueur, lime and sugar will be on offer.

Hosting a party? Impress friends at home and concoct the recipe yourself.

As a treat for pre-theatre diners, ORSO will treat guests to ‘Eat Me’ | ‘Drink Me’ vouchers on Alice in Wonderland show nights, including lots of excellent offers, which will ensure customers leave grinning like Cheshire Cats. T&C’s apply

Authentic Italian restaurant, ORSO, lies just a stone’s throw away from Theatreland in the heart of Covent Garden. Since 1985 ORSO has been a firm West End favourite, with performers and theatre goers alike. With an entrance marked solely by a discreet olive tree, it is one of the last remaining independent Italian restaurants in the area, thanks to its unique offering and outstanding service.
