Went for dinner with a colleague. Very friendly busy place. We shared the date and stuffed goat cheese which was delicious. I had the linguine vongole which was excellent and my colleague had the fish of the day, haddock, which was very well done. Overall very enjoyable and would definitely recommend. Very reasonably priced.

The food and drinks at Olazzo are very good. The food they prepare is fantastic. I only wish the menu was larger. Only one fish dish and primarily pasta oriented.

Stopped in with my wife for lunch, large menu with tons of options at REASONBLE prices. They serve you hot and fresh Italian bread with butter before you order. I had chicken parm sandwhich $8 well worth it. Great bread, scenery and customer service. Best spot in Bethesda for lunch!

Heard raves from many, read raves from many. Went twice within 2 weeks, overall good but not fabulous. 1st visit : our server, while very attentive, referred to us (husband, 2 teens, 1 9yo) as " love" "sweets" and the like thru the entire meal. Not only annoying but unprofessional , esp since my husband and I are in our... More

We took the family for happy hour and sat in a booth in the bar. We went early and we were the only ones in there. I love their martinis. We had the Arancini balls and the meatball sliders. They were good and flavorful. We will be back.

When I see such high reviews from Trip Advisor (4.7) I expect an experience that is memorable. My martini was very nice, the Arancini (Saffron risotto balls) were very nice, my lasagna with meat sauce was loaded with meat and very nice, the caprese was very nice, and the Ravioli Rose was the star of the evening. The experience was... More

We always have a great time here. We had a bad experience at a restaurant at the beach which made me realize how good we usually have it at Olazzos. We go every week and get great food and great service. THANKYOU

There are a lot of really good reviews for this place here on TripAdvisor but I really wasn't all that impressed. The food, service and ambiance were all just OK. I will say, the prices were very reasonable. The entire meal including an appetizer, a couple of alcoholic beverages and two entrees came to less than $85 including tax and... More

We were on our way to another place and decided to check this out because a friend had mentioned it to us a while back. What a treat! Really fresh food and delicious unique dishes. Our girls LOVED the mussels in red sauce (a new food for them) and our dishes were good sized portions and nicely presented - we... More
