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

We come here regularly and the food is always good and service adequate. Was there for dinner this week and I was surprised as to what happened. With dinner we ordered a bottle of montepulciano. We were told by the server that they didn't have that particular item so we opted for another, more expensive bottle. Once we were drinking... More

We went looking for Italian cuisine and were pleasantly surprised with an eclectic, creative menu. I had the spinach and garlic tortellini which comes in an olive oil sauce with chopped dates. The tortellini is made in-house and all entrees come with a salad. The service was slightly slow, but the server was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Most importantly,... More

...we were just not the right customers. This is not to say that service was bad -- it was pleasant enough. But compared to how the table next to us was treated, well, let's just say that we both noted the disappointment in the bartender's voice when I said we weren't there to drink. I went with my teenage son... More
