And the food - calamari excellent as was the gnocchi duck bolognese and other pastas. Not so much the mussels - broth good but the mussels were very small. Olazzo makes... More

Olazzo is a charming comfortable restaurant with delicious fresh Italian food and a good wine selection. Half off bottles on Monday. Service is great and the brick interior is nice. Not cheap but not extremely expensive

This was our first time there. Made a reservation but when we got there they seemed to have lost it. We stood for a few minutes before they sat us on the bar side if the restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was ok. I ordered linguine with clams which came with side salad and bread. The bread... More

A friend who lives close by first recommended this tasty spot. We have ordered takeout a few times, and our most recent experience prompted this review. After a long day I ordered takeout on my way home, and when I arrived the order was a tad messed up. Much to my surprise, the staff quickly (and without questions) immediately began... More

We love Olazzo. The bread and salad is always so fresh and tasty. Our favorite entrees include Eggplant Parmesan, Sausage and peppers, pasta with sundried tomatoes and peppers. Actually we've enjoyed each dish we've tried. It is a fun place to take friends to.

From start to finish this restaurant was amazing!! The calamari were huge but tender; the caprese salad had the best tomatoes with the best flavor and all of our pasta dishes were melt in your mouth. The food came out extremely hot and timed perfectly. This was welcomed by our entire party. I have been to little Italy in Baltimore,... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch at Olazzo and found their Walnut & Goat Cheese Salad very pleasant. I ate outdoors instead of indoors to grab some fresh air on a lovely spring day: the table was fine for one, since I was able to sit in the shade and look out to the street in comfort; a companion would...

A colleague of mine recommended this place while I was working in the DC area. It was fantastic! Great atmosphere, wonderful food, good happy hour and a very nice staff. I highly recommend when in the Silver Springs/DC area.
