Fantastic & delicious as always! So glad I left room for dessert! Wonderful all around experience with personal touch! Highly recommend!
Another delightful meal , with great hosts . Beautifully cooked , and presented , and save room for the stunning deserts .
Only comment I would say it can be a little cold in the dining room , but other than that , we love it
As far as i know, Darwin was not a restaurant critic but his 'Survival of the Fittest' theory could be applied to the business. Al Sospiro in Olney is a survivor because it's constant and fit for foodies. The menu doesn't change much except for the deserts which are made daily in house by the hostess, co-owner, artistic decorator and wife of the chef , -the other co-owner. Change is inevitable. Let's hope it doesn't come too soon for this great Italian restaurant in the basement, next to the pizza joint in Olney.
This little hole-in-the-wall restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The main dining area is downstairs, and is small and cozy. Our server was fantastic - very down-to-earth, personable, and attentive. It took a bit of time for the food to come out, but everyone was very happy with their meal, and it was all served at once, which is always appreciated. The pasta was excellent, and tasted homemade.
Wonderful dinner, again. We have come here for numerous life celebrations over the last 10 years, and need to come more frequently! Spinach/red beets salad was awesome, and the specials were excellent! Highly recommend this restaurant!
Great service but found the menu to be a bit meat heavy. Would like to have had a few more vegetarian entrees to choose from. Ended up ordering an appetizer and salad instead. Both were very good but would like to have had a hot entree.
As always the food was delicious and beautifully presented. The service was very good and we had a relaxed time with friends.
The venue had a true Italian trattoria feel, limited seating for a more intimate experience. A well balanced menu had numerous fish, pasta, veal and lamb choices. Soups and salads are also not run of the mill - different and very tasty.
This neighborhood gem serves authentic, fresh, delicious Italian food. So glad it's in my neighborhood!
We were a group of 7 and had an enjoyable experience. The restaurant is small which was a really good thing on the night we were there. Some of the “help” did not come in that evening, leaving one server to handle everything, including making drinks! She did an awesome job, keeping everyone happy and she did it with a great attitude. I wish we had gotten her name. Our food was outstanding, although the baby octopus was a bit tough, and the gnocchi was a bit doughy. Everything else was perfect. We’ll definitely return and highly recommend to others!
