Great Dinner!

We had 6:00 dinner reservations on a Saturday night, and that was a good thing since the place filled up very quickly. We were seated in the back room, which was quieter than the front room with its busy bar and booth seating. I liked the country vibe of the back room, with its (faux?) exposed... read more

We usually go to the Bethesda one but this one was just as good. I like their prices and their service. We were a group of 18 for a birthday with 3 generations and they were very efficient in their service. We didn't have to wait long and they had a lot of staff. It also helps that they took... More

Went at 830pm for dinner at the bar. The wait staff and bartender were very accommodating. The beer selection was small but good. Pricing was fair for food and drinks. The other reviews said the food was above average... I disagree with that based on my penne with marinara sauce and homemade meatballs. It was not bad but it certainly... More

The place is small and personable with a great feel. Not a good place for large crowds. The food is very good with a diverse Italian menu. The stuffed dates with cheese followed by gnocchi with duck bolognese was fantastic.

The sausage and peppers I had was outstanding, might be the best I have ever had. All the other entires were excellent. Large size portions. My wife had an outstanding vodka and tonic. The apps...

My son and I went to Olazzo as our last night in DC dinner, it was the perfect chose. Lovely atmosphere, great food and outstanding service. Can't say enough nice things about our experience here. Just a nice neighborhood restaurant, that went way beyond both our expectations. Sat next to a family that eats there often and had a lovely... More

My brother took me here for a quick but significant dinner whole our mom was in the hospital. It was a stressful time in our life but walking into this place immediately brought us down to a place of peace and calm. I have many food restrictions but they were happy to accommodate me. Instead of sausage and peppers, I... More

The food here is very good. Most of our family had Italian dishes and liked the. I had excellent crab cakes and potatoes au grattin. The service was also good. I'd love it if the restaurant were larger and more open. The bar area is very narrow and the atmosphere in the back dining room is a bit cave-like.

Well prepared food - small narrow bar/eating area with more seating in the back. Visited b/c of positive Yelp reviews - Grilled eggplant and mozzarella, duck gnocchi and salmon with lump crab - all delicious. Nice, local place to visit when in the area.
