    The three of us went out for dinner at Olazzo tonight, and we were amazed at how awful it was. We ordered the fried calamari, shrimp pesto, chicken malanese, and clams in white wine sauce. We were really excited about all these dishes—and all three of us tried bites of each person’s dish because we thought only ours might be terrible. No - all three dishes were extremely bad. Paste like bland sauce, terrible flavoring, and the clam dish tasted like ocean saltwater with sand in it. Just terrible. The fried calamari was not good either. I can say with 100% authenticity that Olive Garden is much much better than Olazzo. This place should be shut down. Extremely sad excuse for Italian food.

    As part of a large group, had a mediocre dinner on a busy weekday evening. The Italian bread was part of the prior day's loaf, now crumbly and tasteless, the dish of seasoned olive oil tasted bitter. The little clams on linguine in a lemon butter sauce were delightful but the sauce primarily tasted of salt. Others in my group had the chicken parmesan, the ravioli and the wild mushroom gnocchi, all of which they said were acceptable but not memorable. The servers did fine but the kitchen could not keep up and the gnocchi were finally served after the rest of us had finished eating.

    My guy and I went at 8:30pm on a Saturday night and was seated right away. This place is wonderful and intimate, perfect date spot or really great catch up time with a friend. The dim lighting set the mood and the music selection was excellent, the best I’ve ever heard at a restaurant to be honest. I ordered the shrimp and crab rosé, which is a tomato creamed penne dish. The tomato taste is definitely there, I needed to add salt which made it taste better. I would say it was 7/10 the day of, leftovers were 8/10 at the house when I added more crushed red pepper. My boyfriend got FETTUCCINE ALFREDO and added grilled chicken and a shrimp and he literally cleaned his plate. I’ve literally NEVER seen him eat all his food at a restaurant like this and we’ve been together for 3 years. He absolutely loved it. Alfredo is one of his favorite dishes and he gave it at 9.8/10. The chicken was thinly sliced just like he likes it. I recommend this place hands down. We will be back and I plan to try something different. This place is a few notches above Olive Garden of course.

    Nice dinner. A bit warm inside and packed, but overall pleasant. I had the chicken cardinale, and it was exceptional. Highly recommend. The signature old fashioned lacked complexity, and the service was rough. In the end we were sharing a single glass of water, but the food made up for it mostly.
