This restaurant appears unassuming, and it is fairly big. It easily accommodated our large business group. The servers were very attentive, and refilled water glasses and iced tea. Everyone had different foods on the menu. I had Mango Salmon. It was delicious, with mango relish and sautéed mixed vegetables. Dress is casual. Cost was $$. It is worth a try... More

It's been about 4 years since I was last here and I am glad I stopped by again. I had the shrimp and crab pasta dish and found it to be very flavorful with plenty of shrimp and crab meat. I sat at the bar and the bar tender was busy so service was a little slow. They make the... More

Met some friends there that had just moved into the neighborhood from downtown DC. The place has a warm, cozy feel that we all liked. (There is a 2nd dining area down the hallway, past the restrooms and up a short flight of steps.) Our drinks and service were fine. I had Lasagna Bolognese and my spouse had Pasta, Sausage... More

Ambiance is too much to describe this relaxed, comfortable unpretentious joint in the heart of downtown Silver Spring. We sometimes order an entree to share with an extra side salas. There are booths, a bar and TV screens up front, tables in back, where a fake fire on a flat screen TV. lends a warm and cozy feeling even if... More

This is the best Italian food that we've found locally. The service is great as are the prices. But it can be crowded and require a wait. There are various deals to take advantage of early in the week so check out them out online.

Olazzo looked to me like a place that had been in Silver Spring for years, but one of the staff told me it had been there for about eight years. I've passed it many times and always wanted to go in, because it looked so dark (not bad dark) and inviting. The menu is classic Italian, nothing fancy. I had... More

We were seated in the back. Our server was Alexis, very nice and knowledgeable about the menu and drinks selection. We place our food order based on... More

I've enjoyed Olazzo Bethesda, so I assumed that the Silver Spring restaurant would be equally good. Poor assumption. After finally finding parking on the street, we were pleasantly greeted and enjoyed good service throughout the meal. Wine by the glass is very reasonable - in fact, prices for standard menu items are quite modest. That's where the fun stopped. The... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Olazzo and enjoyed a lovely dinner with an attentive server. We were a group of 8 and the server was very attentive and responsive to our needs without ever rushing us or being intrusive. The food was wonderful, as has always been my experience here, and the total bill for a party of 8... More
