Haven’t been in several years. The last time was near the holiday season on a Saturday night and it was so noisy we had to move to another table. This time was much quieter and enjoyable. I ordered the Linguine Pescatore, which is one of my Italian favorites. Azzurro’s version was outstanding. It was so loaded with seafood that I couldn’t even finish it. Our waitress Kinzie was very attentive and accommodating. We will definitely have to go back.

Azzuro once again is tops. From the staff to the food and wine recommendations, Azzuro has the winning recipe.

Good food, service and pleasant surroundings. The staff were working their tails off, and the manager was actively supporting staff and managing. It’s nice to see the manager on the floor helping out.

Great food terrific ambiance but the service was just fair. Don’t know if they were short staffed or not. But I will continue to go there because it is one of the finest restaurants in Richmond!

We had requested a specific table, waited an extra 10 minutes past our reservation time and were not seated at the requested table. Our table was given to a party that arrived after we did who did not have a reservation.The restaurant was not busy as it was 8:45 by this time. We ordered an appetizer. The server returned to our table and took our salad and dinner order. The salad arrived before the appetizer which we had ordered first. We began eating it. Two minutes later our appetizer arrived. Our appetizer became cold while we were trying to hurry and finish our salads. We were never offered appetizer plates, Salad plates remained on table as we attempted to share our appetizer without dishes. Dinner arrived. Salad and appetizer plates were finally cleared by other waitstaff. Quality of food was good, but overall not our best experience at this restaurant.

The food was underwhelming and definitely not traditional Italian. Prices do not match the quality of the food. Service was good.

We had a great time! Our server was great too. The lasagna was out of this world. Our drinks and food came out with perfect timing. It got pretty loud in there but it was a Saturday night.
Overall a great experience!

My son took a date to Azzurros for homecoming. He is allergic to eggs. The staff was so kind. The chef wrote a list of items that contained eggs so that my son could safely choose an entree.

Everything was excellent, and the gluten free meal I had was delicious.
The only complaint is the acoustics. One table of diners was very loud, and they were in the middle of the restaurant, but we could still hear them very well.

Off night. Server just forgot about us. One hour from the time we were seated to the time he took our order. In all, it took more than two hours for a one-course meal.

Our experience was fantastic. We were greeted and seated by David, the owner, who paid special attention to my advance seating request. I am immunocompromised and his interest in our being comfortable was most appreciated. Our meals were delicious and the service was Top Notch. It was a great evening.

The main dishes at Azzurro are great but the side dishes, this time green beans and risotto balls, are usually served luke-warm or cold. They should pay more attention to the sides. Thanks.

We have been eating at Azzurros on special occasions for several years. We are very happy with the Eggplant Rollatini. Dinner sizes are ample enough to share. And, did I say we have enjoyed everything!! The ambience is lovely and the staff was attentive without hovering. We will return!!

Always a reliable favorite! We enjoyed Prosecco with the Calamari appetizer. Our entrees included Lamb chops with Rosemary, Beef tenderloin medallions and the fresh catch, Grilled swordfish. The meal was perfectly prepared and the service was friendly and attentive. We are repeat customers.

We have eaten at Azzurro's many times. Always great. A mild complaint...our waitress was not particularly friendly and did not seem to want to answer any questions. We've never had that experience with any of the waiters or waitresses before. That aside, we will be back in the near future and have always have good meals at Azzurro's.

Lovely evening and the outside patio is a good spot for that. Service was extremely slow, not attentive and the time lapse between our appetizers being served and the waitress coming back to take our dinner order was unacceptable. This lapse was a good half hour. Food overall was not as nice as described on the menu and was bland and way over priced. Not worth a return trip.
