  • "Food was good but not great. We had a reservation and were seated right next to the waitstaff station. Our server disappeared for about 30 minutes. This was the first time my husband and I had been in over 6 years. We aren't dying to go back."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "We were disappointed in our food. I ordered the special which was Mahi Mahi - it was very bland and the broccoli was overcooked and watery. My husband ordered Tre Scalini (a veal dish). The veal was not very tender. The beet salad was fine but at $13 very over priced. With entrees mostly in the mid to upper $20's, I think we should expect food at a higher quality. We were celebrating our anniversary and were disappointed."

  • "I was meeting two friends from college days We were seeking a great place to catch up, enjoy good food and wine, and spend a delightful evening. Azzurro met all our expectations. The service was very good, the menu selections were varied and creative, and the wine was delightful. We had a wonderful time creating new memories among gals that had been at Westhampton together, ahem, a number of years ago."

  • "I always love coming to Azzurro for a great meal particularly when it is an evening of celebration -- birthday, anniversary, etc. The mozzrella con proscuitto is a starter I can't wait to have every time I go. Every entree I have tried there through the years has been delicious. "

  • "Azzurro is one of those consistent restaurants that you know will always be excellent. Table of 4 exactly where we always eat. Service was exceptional attention to detail when water or bread was needed. Pasta done correctly and one of us walking in and seeing the brick oven had to have a pizza!!! Love this place for food and service. Ordered a meal that is usually with shrimp and chef substituted due to shellfish allergy. "

  • "I usually dine at Azzurro for dinner, and it is wonderful. This was my first brunch experience, which we did for Mother's Day. The food was very good, and the service was good, though not as impeccable as during my multiple dinner time experiences. I had the eggs benedict with lump crabmeat, and a side of bacon."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I took my 93 year old mother to Azzurro for brunch. She usually only eats a bite or two, but she ate her entire quiche and said it was the best she ever had! Elegant, friendly, enjoyable experience."

  • "The food and atmosphere were great but the serfi e needs a little work because they kept getting our drinks wrong"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "Better Italian cuisine than most other Richmond restaurants. Good food, pleasant service. Popular place, so management has crammed tables everywhere. Avoid 2-tops along wall near bar. Very noisy, fine with a group of friends, but not good for a quiet or romantic evening."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Brother from Indy, wanted to take him to nice place. Our oysters were the worst either one of us had ever had. Lamb chops ok, absolutely NO flavor/seasoning. Water glasses never refilled and the fish...no taste either. All hype and no service! Alot of money--should have stayed in the Fan. Will never go back."

  • "My mom lives in North Carolina and visits me often. When she comes, this is our favorite place to dine! We always get at least one special and we never leave unhappy!! Everyone is so nice and accommodating and the food is absolutely delicious! "

  • "Had salmon last Sunday that was excellent. The tiramisu, not so much. It was runny with too much chocolate and missing the rum"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Always been a favorite restaurant; but this Sunday brunch the service was really horrible. We had to remind the server about our drink order and, after an hour of waiting, had to have the manager check the kitchen for our food, which promptly came out. The food remains quite good; but, this service experience, may be a turn off!"
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "This was my first visit to Azzurro and was pleasantly surprised. I have been coming to Richmond for years and have never been overwhelmed with any one restaurant in the city, most are good to above average. (Coming from the Dc and Philly area can spoil you). However, Azzurro had a wonderful atmosphere, the menu had good italian choices and the preparation suited the Richmond palette. I had the chicken Palermo (enough for two meals) and of course had to try the eggplant rollatini which was tender and flavorful. I look forward to going back and trying other entrees. "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "First time visiting Azzuro, pleasantly surprised. Great food and service, portions are large, share an appetizer and/or salad. Service was good. Looking forward to visiting again."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Tables close together and noise level too high for our liking, but we overlook those due to excellent menu, specials, and service. Consistent great food but pricey."
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Azzurro has great food, an extensive wine list and excellent service. However, when the restaurant is full which is most evenings the noise level can be quite high. During the warmer months dining on the patio is available and noise is not an issue there. Overall I enjoy the dining experience at Azzuro and recommend it highly.."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "When looking for a one-of-a-kind place to celebrate anything (birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, Fridays), this is a wonderful option, and it never fails to please. The food is delicious, and regardless of the crowd size, it's possible to have a conversation without yelling. Love the table cloths and table settings."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I was a bit disappointed in the meal at Azzurro last weekend. The dish I ordered, Vitello Incappuciatta was heavy on the cream/cheese but light on flavor. The veal was cooked well, but the rest of the meal including the potatoes and broccoli was rather bland. My husband's meal was not as good as what we have come to expect from Azzurro either."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Fresh fruit appetizer was delicious; wine was quite good. Linguine Pescatore … not so much. Skip the after dinner coffee and hit Starbucks (across the street); the coffee had that "old drip-brew" taste to it. I'd go back - and just order something else. The linguine could have been very good, except that the shellfish were overcooked. The mussels and clams were very tough and leathery. The sauce wasn't quite my favorite, but was still good. Based on this, I'm guessing that, if you stick to beef/pork/veggie dishes (more forgiving when overcooked), you'll do quite well and Azzurro can live up to its reputation; just not the shellfish. And again: enjoy the wine, but skip the coffee; for $3+ for a regular cup, it was not really worth it."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "We periodically dine at Azzurro's and find the food and service to be quite commendable. The noise level, however, is a totally different issue. It is so loud that it is pretty much impossible to carry on a table conversation in a normal tone of voice and is the main reason we don't dine there more frequently."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Azzurro has been our go to restaurant for special occasions several years. Our last visit was to celebrate our 39th anniversary. We always have delicious food and service. Never dissappointed."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The service was very prompt. All restaurant employees worked as a team to make it a special dining experience. The food was prepared with attention and was very good."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "Excellent in every respect, as always. A table next to the fireplace was especially nice on this chilly and damp evening."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "We were seated promptly and our drink order was taken quickly but not served quite so promptly. The food was good and as we have eaten there before we will eat there again. A fine neighborhood establishment."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "As an out of town visitor, I have been dining at Azzurro for 7 years, and it is always reliable and consistently good. A bit noisy, and space is tight, but food and service never disappoints."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Our table was ready when we arrived (9PM) but things went downhill from there. The restaurant was so noisy that we had to almost shout to be heard--up till departure at 11. Food was nothing to write home about--and my wife had a "special" that she didn't finish. We took it home and I tried it and saw why she didn't finish it. The only thing special was special for the restaurant--there was so much rice the food cost had to be lowl We had to wait a long time between ordering and appetizers and longer still before the main course--and even longer to get the bill. All in all, Richmond has much better places to eat and enjoy."
