We came to the restaurant the week before Christmas with a large group of coworkers. Everything about the restaurant was fabulous. Every single person who worked there treated us as important guests. Even thought there were several other lunch parties at the same time, everything was perfect. Everyone loved their food and the bread was divine. The atmosphere was very... More

We were a party of 8 celebrating my daughter's birthday. The noise level is typically very loud. Our table was adjacent to a party of 16. We were unable to have a conversation. We requested to move to an adjacent table that had just opened up and at least we could talk. The food which is always a strong point... More

My first visit here and we were seated next to the fireplace. Loved it! The food was wonderful. The bread was thick and chewy and great to have with an Italian dish. I had a beet and goat cheese salad and chicken parmesan. This is not the place to go if you are in a hurry. It took a while... More

I have had so many good experiences at Azzurro I have lost count. I really have never have had a meal that was anything but excellent. Its a little on the pricey side but well worth it. The service and wines are excellent.

We visited Azzurro for Parent's weekend for the University of Richmond. It is close to campus and the service is great. Our waitress was Liza and was fantastic, very attentive with great food suggestions. The meal was amazing and we would definitely go back again!

First visit for us, glad we tried it. Eggplant rollatini is delicate, graceful, and flavorful, by itself worth a repeat visit. Also enjoyed the scallops gorgon zola and the verdure pizza. Atmosphere is nice, we dined outside and had great service, unrushed yet attentive. Prices good. Italian wines looked good, reds mainly confined to Tuscan and a few others. Sorry,... More

It was my daughter's birthday, and her restaurant of choice was Azzurro. We had a table for 6 adults along with an infant and a toddler. The service was slow, and far from great for the price, and they weren't very busy as we had an early reservation. We also specified a booster seat and a high chair, which were... More

I introduced a friend from out of town to a favorite spot. Azzurro lived up to previous experience. The pasta dish was excellent as was the veal I had. Salads were superb. The wine list was extensive and reasonably priced. And, not to be overlooked, the service was excellent in a warm atmosphere conducive to conversation. I will bring other... More

A bunch of retired nurses met for lunch. We had asked for reservations & separate checks, which was said to be no problem. They were ready for us when we arrived. I ordered sweet tea, and was told that they only have regular tea. I was tempted to say "Are you kidding me???" I kept quiet and settled for the... More
