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...

the food is hands down, by far the best Italian food on this side of the beltway. Very fresh. The service is always great and the drinks at excellent.

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.

Service good. Food okay if you're not used to real Italian cooking. Pasta soggy, sauce and sausage bland and bought from Costco; salad with lots of greens...a bit limp. Ambiance kind of old bar style. Happy hour nice bit extremely limited as to choices. Many better restaurants in Silver Spring.

I've had dinner at Olazzo's a number of times. I think it has a nice homey feel. I like to sit in a booth across from the bar. The menu is what one would expect from an Italian restaurant of this type, usually with a couple of special items added. The food has always been fresh and carefully prepared. Service... More

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 beams, grape vines and... 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
