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.

Fun ambiance, interesting drinks and best lasagna ever. A great casual spot, busy every time I've been there.

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

This is your authentic, red-checked tablecloth Italian restaurant (even though there were no tablecloths on the tables). A fairly diverse yet reasonable wine list including a delicious Nero D'Avola. The pasta was fresh, the baked entrees cheezy and crusty and the meats tender and flavorful. While the service could have been a bit friendlier, it was fast and efficient. Our... More

Everything comes together to ensure a pleasant meal. A nice, well rounded menu with enough selection to provide a variety of dishes. We all loved our selections. I had the pasta and clams; although the clams were small, they were tender and well flavored. We had caprese salads that were different; the salad was cut up into big chunks, well... More

I took my girlfriend for a date here and I didn't expect the environment so I expected it to not go so smoothly but it did. I expected regular nice tables set up but it was a bar basically. An open bar as you walk in on your right and high tables with high stools for dining. We were running... More

Red sauce Italian like there are many of in northern NJ is scarce here. Try Olazzo- rustic decor nice bar area, the TV had on the Giants preseason game. 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
