Olazzo - what to order?

  • d

My friends suggested hold a small birthday party at Olazzo- I've heard good and bad about this place. Is there any dish I should/shouldn't get?

  1. Haven't been for a while, but linguine and clams were good.

    1. If you have a few days left, call ahead and ask if they will make braciole. One of the owners once told me they would do that when I commented that I didn't see it on the menu and they have been very good about doing it the couple of times I've called.



      1. Olazzo is great, it is very different from the rest of the stuffiness of bethesda restaurants or the typical chains. My favorite is the cardinale, which i am sure many people have mentioned. Also i heard a couple waiters from there are opening their own place in Falls Grove...??

        1. We've been going to and enjoying Olazzo for years - normally they have a couple of nightly specials including a fresh fish which is usually quite good. And yes, pleasantly different from the average Bethesda joint.
