Orsato began his refereeing career in the lower leagues of Italian football before making his debut in the Serie A, the top-flight of Italian football, in 2006.

At the international level, Orsato has refereed in some of the most prestigious competitions, including the UEFA Champions League and UEFA European Championship. Notably, he was chosen to officiate the final of the 2019-2020 UEFA Champions League, a match between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
