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

A friend and I enjoyed dinner at Azzurro. We each got a stuffed pasta dish, and they were both exceptional. The atmosphere is quite lovely, and the service was very good. It was clear we are old friends who were catching up, and they were just attentive enough and allowed us a lot of space for our conversation. More importantly,... More

Beautiful small non-chain restaurant for date night! Enjoyed the Ravioli in truffle sauce however best part was dessert! For quality and portion size, definitely over priced. Nothing particular would bring us back unless we happened to be in that part of town. Glad to try out something local always!
