Our small business held our bi-yearly dinner at Olazzo's and all 18 of us were extremely satisfied with our meals, service and atmosphere! Our server which I forgot his name was outstanding! He was attentive, knew the menu well and was able to make great recommendations. The appetizers were awesome. We ate in their back room and it provided us... More

Olazzo is an exceptional Italian restaurant. The food is exactly as you would find it in Italy, well prepared, unique, and served by very friendly staff. The restaurant itself is older and that means it's comfortable and informal. Although Olazzo is described as a "bargain" restaurant by the Washingtonian I would see it as on the cusp of expensive.

Great food and great seating, if you can get the front window table. You will feel like you are in a private area but still get to enjoy the outside feel. I brought 8 of us and we fit fine.

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.
