Diner Reviews
  • "Never disappointed by this gem of a restaurant in Olney. A quiet restaurant which serves great food and has great service. Hard to find these days in the DC area."

  • "Delightful, enthusiastic server! Food was really really good----not the first time I've been here. Delicious wine. Great midway spot for me to meet friends from Montgomery County. Cute ambiance with murals on the wall. Ladies' Room was freezing, though clean enough. Check out the chocolate salami dessert---fabulous!"

  • "We have been to Al Sospiro many times and it never disappoints. On the last visit we took an out of town guest who has traveled worldwide and is an experienced "foodie." She was not disappointed and was very complimentary of the food and service. The fact that owner and chef Antonio visits the dining room to chat with his guests is an extra added touch not found in many restaurants today. The homemade desserts add a special touch"

  • "Don't be scared when you first walk in, the actual dining room is down in the basement. It has a very cozy feel, like it's tucked away in an 18th century building in Europe. The food was very good and Javier did an excellent job with the service. This is a very small restaurant, very few staff, great menu, food is excellently prepared."

  • "Took friend to dinner on a Thursday night. I should have skipped it, when I found that the restaurant shared a building with Domino's. Walk in, and you're in an empty cold room. Go downstairs, where it's still cold, and the greeting is non-existent. Decent table. Very few diners, for obvious reasons. Excellent menu, but food does not live up to the menu. Barely adequate, but uneven service. Minestrone, lukewarm. Pasta with veal sauce, barely warmer. The reviews of the restaurant were very good, but I question if any of the reviewers had eaten there. Poor location. Unwelcoming atmosphere. Mediocre food and service. Eating in the burbs, at its worst. Don't bother!"

  • "This tiny restaurant has wonderful food and a friendly atmosphere which makes this restaurant very popular with the locals in Olney. I've had the tuna steak a couple of times and loved it! Because of its size and popularity the noise level is a little high at times."

  • "This amazing little Roman / Italian restaurant is shares a building with a commercial pizza place. Even walking into the first floor bar/lounge, you would never expect the delightful restaurant down a short staircase. The space is nice yet casual; the perfect place for a grown up evening out. The staff is relaxed yet very knowledgeable. I cannot wait for the next date night to go here again! And yes, the food is amazingly delicious!"

  • "My wife and I first went here probably two months after it opened and were not impressed. Last week we went back, this time with a coupon. What an improvement in this restaurant. There were three of us. The salads were exceptional, the entrees were delicious and the desserts were outstanding. We went on a Wednesday evening, so the restaurant was not crowded, but weekends are a different story. I complimented the chef as we were leaving and told him that we would definitely return, this time coupon or not."
