I noted in my reservation that it was my husbands birthday but nothing was ever mentioned. Service and food were great but table was awful. Literally had a mans back almost touching our table.

On Friday, April 12, my family and I enjoyed another excellent dinner at Azzurro Restaurant. Food, service, and ambience were outstanding as always. Special thanks to our server Jarrod whose friendliness and professionalism helped to enhance our experience.

We look forward to seeing everyone again on Saturday, May 11, the evening before our son Tom graduates from UR.

Susan and I have enjoyed dining with you these past four years, and we’ll return again every time we’re in Richmond.

I had asked to sit up by the bar area and was sat in the back. This is the second time this has happened at Azzuros. Also, I had said it was my friends birthday and it is her favorite restaurant, but they never mentioned it and when I did, my friend said no which I knew she would, which is why I mentioned it during the reservation process. There are many great restaurants in RVA now and I have always loved Azzuros since I live in the West End. But I will think twice about going back to be disappointed with my reservation a third time

Always a good meal. The bread is homemade and fresh. Best of all are the specials. Though the specials vary, they nearly always have a seafood choice--which is always excellent.

Food was good and service was okay, but I was charged for a drink that I never received. It was my fault for not closely reviewing the bill before leaving the restaurant and I was already home by the time I noticed it, so I wasn't going back to dispute it...It would've cost more in time and gas than the cost of the drink. Just be sure to review your bill before you provide payment.

A bit disappointed this time. Ordered Pollo Picatta, there were no capers and there wasn't much flavor. Usually this place is spot on. Have been going here for over a year. Hopefully it was just an off night.

While the food and service were quite good, the noise level was extremely unpleasant. When we mentioned it, the waiter said up by the bar was quieter. When leaving, we mentioned it to the hostess, and she said the bar could be noisy, too, depended on the night. We (party of 2) were seated in a corner adjacent to two groups of 12 women each - they should have placed us elsewhere, it ruined a birthday celebration for us.

Usually a lovely spot, on our most recent visit a large party captured all the staff’s attention and drowned out the rest of the diners with their raucous fun. Food was a bit off from the usual high standards. Red wine reduction seafood risotto is a big miss. Hoping for better luck on our next visit. We know A can do better.

My husband and I got a terrible table right by the bar. We could not hear each other, and the waiter could barely get to us for our order. Besides that issue the food and service was good. I recommend requesting not to be at the tables by the bar.
