The portions were large and delicious. Comfort food at its finest. The gnocchi was excellent. The homemade marinara was very good, and Im not usually one for red sauce. The speciality cocktails were really interesting if you like fruity drinks. Try the Upsidedown Pineapple cocktail.

We made a reservation but because we were 5 people we had to sit in the back room which is windowless, depressing and above all noisy. We could barely hear each other across the table. The food was ordinary - no entrees that didn't include pasta, so rather old fashioned and heavy.

This was my first time at this restaurant. It was two couples for dinner, and while the front has a bar and some tight seating, the back of the restaurant is larger, though cozy and lovely. It was one of the best meals I've ever had, and the prices were incredibly reasonable. Made me feel not that far from Italy... More

I've been to Olazzo in Silver Spring several times, but last night was the first time I was inspired to write a review! The service has always been great, but last night all of the food gods came together to deliver a great meal! The risotto balls were really tasty, the tomatoes in the capresse salad were fresh, local and... More

I've visited this restaurant on three occasions. I never felt that the food was "great". However, the service has always been top notch which is why I will probably visit a fourth time. Maybe I'm ordering the wrong things. I've had the butternut-squash ravioli (most recently), Shrimp Alfredo in the past, and some other dish that wasn't memorable. The food... More

Today was my first visit to Olazzo in several years and was not disappointed. Try the linguine with sauge and peppers, its delicious. The service was pretty good too.

This is a hole in the wall restaurant that offers authentic italian food, including outstanding bread. Service is good as is the food.

I had dinner and drinks here with my son, and overall, we enjoyed our time. Even though the female bartender greeted us with a chilly, "Yes?" when we were standing at the bar trying to order a drink, and her complete lack of social skills throughout our dining/bar experience, we really had a great time. The rest of the staff... More

A nice, small, dark restaurant in easy walking distance of downtown, hotels, and other stuff. Practically everyone working there looked to be in junior high school. The atmosphere was lively but cozy. I went on a Tuesday, when signature martinis were only $5; I ordered the very tasty "Italian ice" and then waited more than 15 minutes for it, during... More

Took a date here for her birthday. The service and staff made the experience its a laid back local spot which serves a good variety of Italian cuisine. I ordered the linguine with clams and my date ordered sausage + peppers. On Tuesdays that have martini drink specials which work well if your a fan of gin. The main dining... More
