Cozy Italian restaurant in Silver Spring

If you want good Italian food in SIlver Spring, come to I've been here a few times and have always enjoyed my meal. The restaurant doesn't have a ton of seating, so a reservation would be best on Friday or Saturday nights.

The food is delicious at an affordable price. Includes bread and salad with delicious entrees. Get there early because the seating is limited. Public parking around the corner.

My daughter and I were staying at a nearby hotel, and were looking for a decent meal. We came across Olazzo and decided to pop in. We are glad we did. The service was great, and the food was as well. It's a small place, although they have a decent size back room. We sat up front, nice vibe to... More

Dinner Saturday night at Olazzo for our party of four was good. We opted to sit in one of the booths in the bar area . If you are looking for a good cocktails, you will find them at Olazzo. Our server was conscientious but not hovering. She was busy with all of the booths and the tables outside but... More

I have been going to Olazzo for years and love it. It does great Italian food at an affordable price and I am really partial to the warm bread and olive oil they service you before a meal. They have both a bar section and a main room behind it which is nice and cozy and lit perfectly for a... More

My fiance and I frequent Olazzo about once every couple of months and we have never been disappointed. Seating is occasionally tight but that is par with the course in the DC-area. If you want good Italian food, but want to avoid the (underwhelming) chain Italian eateries, I highly recommend Olazzo.

This restaurant might be overlooked by visitors since it's a few blocks from Ellsworth Ave, where there are many restaurants of all types, along with areas to congregate. I've been to Olazzo twice, and both times the food and the service have been great. The dining area is comfortably small and the lights are moderately low, at least in the... More

The best Italian food in the area! I'm Italian and I love this place! Some classic dishes, some new dishes, but they're all great. Very cozy place, kind of small, make sure you get a reservation. Big bar in one dining area and another cozy dining room in the back.
