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"

Outstanding food, with some
creative takes on old favorites"

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!"

Never disappointed. I would come
back solely for the grilled romaine salad, but the meals have been fantastic. My mouth stills waters at the thought of the swordfish with lemon and capers."

This little trattoria has been
open a few years but I just got around to trying it. That was a mistake. I'll be back a lot."

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."

Enjoyable but a little expensive
for what you got."

I don't go to Italian restaurants
often because I am a carb-hating vegetarian. But I had a great meal here, with the grilled romaine salad and a side of cannellini beans (which I usually find boring, but these were subtle and delicious, cooked from dried beans). And how many places do you get to meet and chat with the chef? And have your first limoncello? What a great find."

I'm italian and recommend this
spot to anyone in the area who has yet to try it. Very authentic food. We try to go at least once a month. It's hard to stay away. Bucatini and the gnocchi are our faves. Try the lentil soup or filet mignon meatball appetizers."

We were a group of 6 and all
enjoyed our meals. Our only bad comment were the chairs. Very uncomfortable. Next time I'm bringing a large pillow to lean against."

I'm glad this wasn't my first
visit to this restaurant. Previous visits have been very enjoyable and the dishes were excellent. This time, it took over an hour from the time we ordered to the time we were served, the bread didn't arrive at the table for about 30 minutes, and my dish (pork tenderloin special) was somewhat dry and tough, though the flavor was good. My two dining companions liked their dishes better. One was pasta and one was fish. We will try again another time."

This gem of restaurant has the
feel of family. The Owner Chef and his lovely wife have created an atmosphere and dining experience that you will want to return to time and again. It is tiny and the noise level is lively but you feel like you are in a room filled with friends who share your love of a good meal and a will pared wine. Enjoy."
