My family went there for pizza. We each had our own. None were good. I may go back to try their other dishes.

we had the veal scaloppini with scalloped potatoes and asparagus, pepperoni pizza and the caprese salad. Everything was tasty except the tomatoes on the caprese salad. They were tasteless. Would have been better to serve the mozzarella with roasted red peppers when fresh tomatoes are not in season.

The service was a little slow, but everything else about the evening was beyond reproach. Their menu is extensive, so there’s something for just about every palate and diet. The wine, beer, and cocktail offerings are also numerous, with, again, something for everyone.

Another delicious dinner that never disappoints! The cocktails were done to order and veal piccata was cooked perfectly. To top the evening off, we were able to score an outside table on a beautiful evening.

Been dining at Azzurro for several years and always have a great experience. However, this time the bar was cluttered with stuff, our table for two wobbled until I put something under one of the legs and the cloth covered bench for table seating could use a good cleaning. Food was very good.

The meal was delicious. Absolutely no complaints there. Our server clearly was not pleased that we were there. We showed up 10 minutes early for our reservation, but we did have a later reservation (8:15) and he made a point of telling us that we needed to hurry up and choose our entrees because the kitchen would be closing soon. I would have preferred they not offer a reservation at this time rather than been hurried through our meal.

This is our favorite spot. Brought my parents from out of town for the first time and their only complaint was that they wanted to try EVERYTHING on the menu. Every dish was great, service was outstanding (Martha is the BEST), and cannot wait to go back. Even though they have solid COVID protocols, include temp taking before entering, they also have adapted to a solid take-out program with designated parking outside....but we personally love love ambience inside including attentive service. Still counting down the days until we can sit at the bar and eat...someday.

Impeccable service, wonderful food, and the ambience of the patio made for a five star evening! The calamari was crispy and served with two delicious sauces, the veal was exquisite, the pizza was perfection, and the salmon was grilled to perfection. There’s no room for improvement in my book because Azzurro is already top notch.

Regrettably it had been years since I ate at Azzuro. That’s about to change. Our meal Wednesday night was outstanding and I cannot wait to go back. My friend and I had a lovely experience on the outdoor side patio. The wine, food, and server could not have been better. She ordered a pizza which looked so good, I had to try a slice. I was not disappointed. My ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce was almost decadent. Both of us had leftovers to extend our experience. I cannot wait to reintroduce this place to my husband. Yum!

The pizza was good but the salad and the pasta were so so. The pasta was cold and bit tasteless. The salad was very basic and certainly not worth the price. The wine was overpriced for what it was. I would not recommend Azzurro for anything other than pizza. This is a shame because I have been going to this restaurant for decades and they used to have decent food. I had not been for over a year because of Covid and was very disappointed.
