    Great food, great atmosphere, and great service! I love the Chicken Marsala with Linguine special on a Thursday.

    If you're in the mood for a soup, ask for the "Italian Wedding Soup," which is not on the regular menu. Can be ordered by the cup or bowl. Contains chicken broth, small meatballs and spinach.

    Delicious! Best tomatoes I've seen in 2011 on the Neapolitan, like a caprese only way better; and so finely done! Great service, fantastic quality, down to the crisp lettuce and cukes in the salad! A+

    Ate dinner here tonight and had a great experience. Food was excellent, service was solid, and the atmosphere had a nice vibe. Clientele are young and affluent. The caprese and lasagna were amazing!

    the "steak and eggs" is really veal Milanese. Not bad by any means, but it was a bit bland

    Olazzo is a wonderful neighborhood Italian place. Delicious food, great service and moderate prices!

    If you try the Chicken Cardinale ask for the chicken to be breaded instead of mixed with the pasta. While the sauce was amazing, the chicken tasted reheated.

    Tabitha is the best waitress! Make sure you sit in her section. Loved the eggplant parm.

    The food is incredible, the staff is incredibly friendly and attentive, and it's my favorite spot in Bethesda! Try the Chicken Cardinale ASAP!

    Chicken Cardinali is my choice. But everything is great!

    If they offer to call you, it’s a lie. My food was cold on pickup because they never called to tell me it was ready. Why even take my phone number?

    Food is good but service is flaky. They kept forgetting to bring our drinks and the waitress was far from friendly.
