lovely eveningwe were very happy with the food and service. dishes innovative and tasty. we would have liked to sit outdoors, but there was a wait, we had elderly guests and that would been hard on them. There is no comfortable place for waiting, we will definitely go back and use open table going forward for all of our reservations. thank you6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Anniversary DinnerMy husband and I recently celebrated our anniversary here. We had a hard time deciding what to get, there were so many things that sounded good. The shrimp gazpacho was delicious. The portions were rich and generous, which we loved. The service was fantastic. The noise level did get a little loud for a Thursday night but we didn't mind. Would definitely go again.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian in RichmondAlways fantastic, but even better when the patio is open! Great pasta and terrific waitstaff. Brendan was our server, he was terrific. And always great to see Ruben!
Wes keeps the place purring: immaculate, friendly, delicious! Always a pleasure --- this is the 17th year we have dined there nearly every Saturday night we can! It never gets tiring as it is always excellent! Great ever-changing wine list thanks to Wes--you can always count on a fantastic new red--we love all the Molly Dukers!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM49th anniversary celebrationOur children gave us a Gift Certificate at Christmas. We decided to use it for a special occasion - to celebrate our 49th anniversary. We took pictures of each course - 3 - and sent them to our children. The food was excellent and the evening was as memorable as we knew it would be.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food!The food was wonderful and did not disappoint for a first time visit. The energy and ambiance was just right. My friend and I got there early for dinner and couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable dining experience. I had a chicken dish, pollo genovese and my friend had grilled salmon. Our sides were broccoli and a stuff potato. The service was excellent also. Had a great night and would dine there again. It is pricey so you need to be prepared, but worth it!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBring Your Ear PlugsAzzurro's is one of my favorite dining spots in Richmond. My only criticism, and it is significant, is the noise level is quite intolerable whenever it is fully booked. The tables are too close together and groups tend to raise the level to the point that diners for two are forced to shout over each other. I'd prefer to see a seating arrangement where there are fewer diners overall and that groups of 4 or more be relegated to their own separate section of the restaurant.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe used to frequent AzzurroWe used to frequent Azzurro quite a bit but got stuck in the bar last time and it was a less than pleasant experience service wise. This time we were able to sit outside and it was a terrific night. Great food, great service, we're putting Azzurro back in the rotation.....6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ItalianAzzuro's has freshly prepared food with great standards and delightful specials. The owner is very hands on and it shows5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter went out of hisThe waiter went out of his way to accommodate our needs. We were originally at a table where the person at the next table was sitting between us. We asked to move and he accomplished this with very little fanfare.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGem in neighborhoodAlways have good experience at Azurro's. Best Italian space & food in Richmond Bar reat place for quiet wine or drink. Service always knowledgeable and efficient. Will always come back.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways perfect.Never disappoints. Fresh, tasty, well-paced, not too fancy.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service & cuisine but NOISY!I would also add that the quantities of food were enormous...my husband and I could easily have split a salad and an entree.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of Richmond's BestAzzurro is possibly the most beautiful restaurant in Richmond with the menu and service (generally) to match. If this were LA, Azzurro would be in Beverly Hills or Bel Air.
We dine out 1-3 times a week in Richmond. In terms of atmosphere, this the high end restaurant all other high end restaurants in Richmond aspire to, or should. (The only competition: Lemaire at the Jefferson and Acacia.)
We've been going to Azzurro fairly regularly for 8 years; it never fails. I don't know how they do it, but if they could pass on just a bit of the secret to other restaurants in town, we'd all be better off.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Azzuro severalI have been to Azzuro several times and have nver been disappointed. This is a wonderful little Italian restaurant.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food every timeExcellent food every time and friendly attentive service. Only complaint is an expensive wine list.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI have dined at Azzurro onI have dined at Azzurro on several occasions. Service in the past has always been excellent. My most recent experience was disappointing. Our server was condescending and imperious and appeared really put out to have to serve us. Fortunately the bus boys and ancillary staff were able to bring us water when our glass was empty and silverware when we had none. (Of course we had to flag them down to get the water and the silverware).4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go there quite often andWe go there quite often and the service is always good and dinner is very good with a small array of specials which are very good as well.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was very loud when we firstIt was very loud when we first got there with about 30 high school girls having a birthday dinner - once they left, it was fine.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & serviceWe were able to sit outside and it was great. We have eaten here before with a group and alone, each time the food and service have been wonderful. Recommend to friends and people new to the area all the time.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe return here often becauseWe return here often because management and staff take such good care of their customers.

The food is terrific and the staff very well trained in exceptional customer service.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways taken care of ...I am a regular and have been for many years now. It's always a pleasure to visit an establishment that knows you and treats you like family. I refer my own friends and family because I know they will be taken care of and have a wonderful experience on each and every visit. Tonight, the mozzarella prosciutto was delicious and hit the spot for a quick dinner after work. Thanks Tom for taking great care of me ... I'm sure to be back soon!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I love thisMy husband and I love this cozy restaurant. We love going there with another couple or just by ourselves. The food and the service are always great. It is always a good time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Saturday NightBest place in town. Best service, waitstaff, delicious food.
Mista and rigatoni pomadoro for him, Caesar salad and ravioli tartufo for me, + terrific wine list + wonderful waiter (Dean) = another perfect Saturday night at Azzurro. Can't wait for the patio to open!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my girlfriend there--ITook my girlfriend there--I like places that are quiet so that we don't have to yell to hear each other. Azzurro had a great, quiet atmosphere, even on a Friday night. Excellent food and great service, I'll definitely be going back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe tiramisu was by far myThe tiramisu was by far my favorite but everything we had was delicious! The service was great, the waiter was pleasant & knowledgeable.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAzzurro's, Quality & Consistency.Azzurro's has just the right balance of upscale dining that is inclusive of everyone from a family evening out, to a quick take-out pizza or an intimate dinner for two. Prices are such that they generally eliminate the younger crowd of college age kids or twenty-somethings. The bar can tend to get packed and noisy on Friday or Saturday night, but in general, it's consistent and quality food that you return for - always pay attention to the specials!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWent go lunch with anotherWent go lunch with another light eater
