    Fun birthday dinner for my Mom. The seafood in my pasta which was $40 was good however the pasta and sauce was not. Too heavy. Everything else was great and wonderful Tiramisu (free for a birthday)

    Great experience for an intimate birthday dinner. Our server, Victoria, was knowledgeable and attentive. The food was top-notch; we'd never seen caramelized pears in pasta before, and it was delicious! They even put a candle in our tiramisu to add a nice touch to a celebration. My only wish is that they had whole bottles of wine on the drinks menu, but the selection of glasses were great, too. We will definitely return.

    The service was really good The calamari was yummy The rigatoni Norma was awful!! My friend ordered it and barely ate it, I took it home as leftovers and just had a bite and it tastes like something is wrong with it. I wish my friend had sent it back for something else This is inedible—you guys probably want to check it before someone else orders it

    Always great service and really good meals! I do wish they could bring back the bar as a viable seating alternative and also have the patio open on non-rainy days.

    AzzurroResponded on June 15, 2022We are glad to hear you enjoyed your experience. Our patio is only closed during inclement weather and extreme heat. Usually any day over 91 degrees and a heat index of 100 will cause us to close the patio for the sake of the staff and HVAC. Any other time we will always have it open on a first come first served basis. We hope you return and can enjoy dining al fresco on a cooler evening, as we will surely have it prepared for seating.

    The food was fine and the staff were mostly polite. We were encouraged repeatedly to get our orders in before the kitchen closed. My wife and I arrived 40-45 minutes before close and it felt as though we were being hustled out - kinda put a damper on the evening. We were in/out in <25 minutes (including apps, entrees and drinks).

    The food was, as usual, very good. My one complaint is that I requested that I get my remaining salad and entree to go. I discovered when I got home that I only got the entree and the salad was not packed to go. (There was a lot of good avocado and mozzarella left on the salad!) Other than that, the service was good.

    Azzurro is consistently very good, although pricey. Service was team based and very good without being smothering. Frankly, service for cleared items and water and such good have been a bit more on the spot, but very good overall. It's a lovely spot and always a solid choice with leftovers happily coming home.
