This is the best Italian food that we've found locally. The service is great as are the prices. But it can be crowded and require a wait. There are various deals to take advantage of early in the week so check out them out online.

Olazzo looked to me like a place that had been in Silver Spring for years, but one of the staff told me it had been there for about eight years. I've passed it many times and always wanted to go in, because it looked so dark (not bad dark) and inviting. The menu is classic Italian, nothing fancy. I had... More

Meeting girlfriends for dinner in Silver Spring. We arrived during happy hour grabbed a seat at the bar to wait for others to arrive. First impression was this is a cute quaint place. We were seated in the back. Our server was Alexis, very nice and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks selection. We place our food order based on... More

I've enjoyed Olazzo Bethesda, so I assumed that the Silver Spring restaurant would be equally good. Poor assumption. After finally finding parking on the street, we were pleasantly greeted and enjoyed good service throughout the meal. Wine by the glass is very reasonable - in fact, prices for standard menu items are quite modest. That's where the fun stopped. The... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Olazzo and enjoyed a lovely dinner with an attentive server. We were a group of 8 and the server was very attentive and responsive to our needs without ever rushing us or being intrusive. The food was wonderful, as has always been my experience here, and the total bill for a party of 8... More

From to onset we were led to our table by the owner who was acting as a host. Food was fresh and well prepared old fashioned Italian dishes. Prices very reasonable, and were given a complimentary desert. We will go back soon.

We had dinner recently at Olazzo's in Silver Spring, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's relatively small, and offers a bar-type of atmosphere with several television screens. The menu offers an outstanding variety of Italian food and a reasonable wine list. We were delighted by the bruschetta and arancini appetizers, the chicken cardinale, grilled eggplant, and penne primavera entrees, and the... More

I am a regular at Olazzo's and recommend it highly, not only for the food, but the ambiance. Great spot for lunch, drinks or dinner. It has a quaint, rustic old Italy feel, but still provides an upbeat trendy bar scene. The food is always fresh and tasteful. I've been going to Olazzo's for over 3 years on a regular... More
