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

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
