“Subtle and Tasty Italian Cooking”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Olazzo looks more like a bar and grill than an Italian restaurant. But don't be fooled. Their pastas are among the very best in the Washington area. There are many of them, some traditional and some innovative, but all are different, subtly and imaginatively seasoned. Prices are quite reasonable. Highly recommended.

“Red Checkered Table Cloth Italian”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Well done, reasonable -- dark and possibly romantic for some.

Nicely priced, casual dress.

Pretty standard Italian food.

“Fantastic ”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I had a Greek salad and Pasta Primavera. The Best Ever! It was reasonably priced. The bread was fresh and warm from the oven. Near St. Elmo and Cordell parking garage.

“Great place with great food!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

My husband and I just went there for dinner. The place itself is very cosy and inviting, with nice dark furniture. The room is pretty dark but you get used to it, and the candlelight is very inviting. Service was very good, fast and friendly. As for the food, it did not disappoint. Lentil soup was very tasty, arancini awesome. Then vegetarian lasagna for me and chicken cardinal for my husband. Entrées came with a nice salad.
Big portions, so we brought home what will be our lunch tomorrow!
Overall, a great experience. Will definitely come back!
