Primary reason for 3 stars is that the food was not up to our expectations- not as good as our previous visits (in my opinion) - my pasta was too heavy and the depth of taste was not quite there - my wife’s pizza was ok but we have had better in the past few months (Mellow Mushroom, 8 1/2 for example)

We haven't eaten up much with CV-19 but Azzuro made the experience "almost normal". Our server, Martha, was excellent. Fun, attentive, cheerful. The insalata avocado was amazing and our entrees were exceptional.

It’s one of my favorite places, locally owned and always great service. The Ochettchiete Azzuro is my to go to all the time, it never disappoints, but you must ask at dinner time that you want it with the Fri Diablo sauce lunch recipe not the dinner recipe if you want it more savory with a nice touch of spice. Personal choice. The special tonight was very disappointing, lacking flavor. It was angel hair, mozzarella. Diced tomatoes and crab meat. Definitely don’t recommend this dish. Stick to the menu items, their brick oven pizzas are amazing.

Ambiance is in abundance at Azzurro. Their outdoor patio is delightful with beautiful grapevines overhead. Despite all the cautions with Covid, the staff were welcoming and accommodating. The service and food were outstanding! Lots of delicious, fresh choices. We were delighted!

I ordered a $23 plate of pasta with chicken. I believe that the name of the dish was Caterina.
Watery angel hair pasta in a white wine sauce with fresh tomatoes and chunks of cold mozzarella.
Tasteless with a poor presentation and overpriced.
I actually had to put salt and pepper on the dish. Never have I done that in any Italian restaurants

We are Azzurro regulars and very much appreciated patio dining being available during COVID 19. The service was friendly and accommodating. Pasta entrees were good but could have benefiitted from cracked pepper and olive oil for more flavor. The Annabella Chardonnay is a nice wine.

I have been to Azzurro many times, but the food was not up to the standard that I have become use to. We both got the specials. The risotto was rice and not risotto. The salmon was overcooked.

Service was wonderful. Seated on the patio and it was lovely. Wonderful gazpacho and amazing calamari . Also tried a wonderful new wine. The pasta special we tried with crab and fresh mozzerella was a bit dry..I told the server and asked for red sauce which made it very nice with this addition.

This is one of our favorite places.

It was a total success as our first time dining out with friends after being homebound. We had wonderful food and wine and appreciate the value of being close to the UR neighborhood, and having convenient easy parking. We have loved this restaurant a long time and never been disappointed. Therefore we are pleased that they are open and bringing smiles and full stomachs!
