    The food was really good. The service was also very good. The portions are on the large size and a little pricey but well worth it. It took my years to find this place so not sure if it’s well known.

    One of the BEST Italian restaurants in Richmond. I lived in Italy for two years. I thought I was back at the Piazza Navona at the Tre Scalini. The Zacchetti with the pear and porcine mushroom filling spinach and a divine cream sauce. Absolute heaven in the mouth.

    This Italian restaurant offers an unforgettable dining experience. The warm hospitality and elegant ambiance of authentic Italian cuisine instantly blew me and my family away. The staff’s impeccable service and genuine smiles make you feel like family. We started off with the calamari and it tasted amazing. It was perfectly fried and accompanied a great sauce. I personally had the salmon for the main entree and all I can say is that I made sure to finish my plate. It was so good! My family and I ended off the night with their famous tiramisu. Ultimately, a wonderful evening filled with great tasting foods and flawless service. 100% recommend!

    Heard so much hype about this place that I thought it’d be a nice spot to take my parents for their 55th anniversary. I noted the anniversary on the reservation. Upon check in, I told the hostess. I thought maybe we could do something celebratory but the staff did nothing to mark it which was disappointing. Food was disappointing as well, but I heard the pizza is what I should have chosen. Attractive environment but very loud. Waitress did well.

    One of the great restaurants in the Richmond area. I took my friend and my 10 year old grandson for a Sunday evening meal. We totally enjoyed the food, the ambiance and the service. We sat next to the fireplace, it was great.
    Italian food prepared in an awesome way.

  20. marysa 2022/11

    the worst Italian i’ve ever had. how did they mess up so bad. it was dry. it was undercooked. and the other one was overcooked and was just so disgusting and gave me a stomachache. two pastas for 80 dollars. absolutely disgusting.

    Service has gone downhill lately. The wait staff has changed and overall quality is not as good. We waited a very long time for a burnt pizza. Our server, was inattentive and slow. It shouldn’t take over 2 hours to have a meal at dinner. Very disappointed in one of my favorite Richmond restaurants.

    Overall a very mediocre experience. The restaurant is very nicely decorated inside. Food was acceptable but very average for the price point. Entree 4/4 came out about 10 minutes after 3/4 which was a bit disappointing. Specialty cocktails were just ok. Service was a bit slow. Might give it a try again as it is in a great location and was really a nice atmosphere.

    I have to say, this was the worst meal I’ve had in a long time. Our server was very strange. I asked for one glass of wine since I did not want to share a bottle with the group, but she ignored me and poured that bottle in my glass. She also was very aloof, almost like she was drunk. The food runner was extremely rude. He slammed the food down on the table as he dropped it and was noticeably annoyed when our group was figuring out who had what. For those prices, I would expect them to know who ordered what at a 10 person table. Also, the food was HORRENDOUS. The calamari was extremely chewy and had no seasoning. I honestly have had better calamari from the freezer section at Lidl. I’m pretty sure they microwaved it, it wasn’t even crunchy. For my food, it was extremely under seasoned. Actually, i don’t think there was any seasoning. I drowned it in Parmesan just to have flavor. In addition to having no flavor, the chicken was SO DRY. My dish had cold mozzarella balls plopped on top, like it was right out of the fridge. This meal would cost $5 and but at this “elevated dining restaurant” was $25!!! The only thing that is elevated there are the prices. I will not even eat the leftovers, it was THAT horrible. It takes a lot for me to hate a dining experience so much that I need to write a review about it. I don’t know if the chef was having an “off” day, but I’m sad my money went to this “fine dining” nightmare.

    Unattentive wait staff. The shrimp risotto was so overcooked that it could hardly be eaten with the exception of added asparagus which was almost raw. The pizza was burnt & unflavorable. The gazpacho was tomato juice with cut up snow crab and slice of avocado. We were embarrassed to have taken an out- of -town friend to this restaurant.

    We had a good meal and service was good. I feel bad for the establishment because they only take reservations through Open Table, and when we were there they had many tables open at 8pm on Valentine’s Day yet Open Table showed them to be totally booked. I felt very sad for the servers there because they could have taken many more people. Open Table is clearly not helping this situation. .

    Azzuro is definitely my favorite Italian restaurant in Richmond. Their staff is top notch. The atmosphere is warm and comforting. It reminds me of my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. And their food….oh my gosh. It’s amazing. Their fresh ingredients are front and center. And their Zachetti di Pere (pear and cheese pasta) is unforgettable. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an exceptional evening.

    Nice, friendly, and helpful staff, music to fit the cuisine, and overall a bit above average food. Not impressive or a ‘wow’ or a gotta go there location, but still an enjoyable experience. Some balsamic and olive oil with the tasty bread would have been a nice start, just pats of butter instead. Entrees and apps were good but pretty average. 3.5 would be my rating if an option.

  42. Joshua Griffin 2022/02

    A large selection of average Italian food.

    The bread was disappointing. We had the calamari, which is fried, was not good, vodka pasta was ok, and the veal Parmesan was nothing special. The tiramisu was good. Somewhat over priced especially for the quality.

    The best aspect of our visit was the ambiance.

    Service was ok, plenty of staff. Our waitress was on the snobby side and a bit dismissive, but everyone else was delightful.

    Probably will not return, and would not recommend.

    I have never put anything in my mouth as delicious as the Zachetti Di Pere. The balance of flavors – the sweetness of the pear against the savory Gorgonzola spinach cream sauce was to die for. And the purse shaped pasta was unique and beautiful! I will be back (again and again) for this dish!

  47. Robert Wake 2021/10

    This has been a mainstay go to neighborhood restaurant for my family for years. One of the best Cesar salads dressings I have ever tasted. The pizza is a consistent winner

    This was our second time and nothing like the first time, which was absolutely amazing. We started off with long hair in my husband’s napkin, the calamari appetizer was under cooked. The waiter was great and the rest was good. I was disappointed as we thought this would be a great place for date night. We are new in town and Azzurro reminded us of a little itlian restaurant back home.

    Still no bar. COVID food, terrible! I used to love the fun boutique atmosphere, and the food for years. I ordered mussels and the broth was water. The only dishes that came out decent were very simple pasta dishes. Lazy staff, still holding onto COVID as an excuse for poor service and only partially open. This place is the only upscale restaurant in town without a bar, no social atmosphere whatsoever and a COVID protocol. This place just needs to fire the staff and close until there are no more pandemic excuses. Azzuro is surviving on the coat tails of its well established past. Those days are unfortunately gone. I will not be returning. Azzuro is too far gone now. Don’t waste your money here only to find this all out yourself. It’s sad and disappointing. Go elsewhere to have a great experience.

    There are a number of great Italian restaurants in Richmond. This place is not one of them. The vegetables are frozen, and we recently had the plastic wrap in our meal to confirm it.

  63. Rachel Mc Klveen 2021/04

    Great ambience including jazz, amazing selection of wonderful dishes, a wine menu with depth, and an attentive and knowledgeable server made for an extremely pleasurable evening on at least two occasions. The evening we were there during the pandemic, appropriate protocols were strictly observed.

  64. Mary Ruth Coleman 2021/03

    Very disappointed. Menu sounded great but the food was below average. Atmosphere and service were fine. My husband’s pasta was so poor that even the waiter knew it and only charged us half price.

    I was in the Richmond, VA recently with my family and went to Azzurro for dinner. I heard great things about the restaurant from friends who recommended it.

  73. Patrick Forsyth 2020/08

    Some of the best food I’ve ever had, and all the other members of my party had ones that looked phenomenal as well. The tiramisu was, hands down, the best I’ve ever had. The staff was as friendly and polite as could be, and the service was amazingly quick given that the restaurant was standing room only at the time. I will definitely be visiting again!!

  74. Courtney Semans 2020/07

    Went there a few nights ago and sat at the bar. The man next to me started a conversation with me and my friend about race and immigration. He didn’t like that we had a difference of opinion and got very angry, started loudly saying he was done with us, and throwing his arms around. The bartender came over and took our drinks away, asking us to leave. The man was allowed to stay because he was a ‘regular’, even though he started the conversation.

  75. Cori14398 2020/07

    This was our first visit, and it was lovely. We had reservations and were sat right away. Our waiter, Matty, went through the specials and we ended up ordering the crab cake appetizer and the lobster salad from the specials. (Both were fantastic) my husband ordered the lamb chops, and I wasn’t sure what to get, so Matty suggested a really wonderful chicken and sausage meal. Everything was exceptional. We will definitely dine here again.

  76. C Mumm 2020/05

  77. Michael Menen 2020/05

    I have been to the restaurant several times. It is nicely decorated, and the food is generally good. The service is unfortunately up and down. I went tonight to celebrate my son’s acceptance to college. A special moment. Despite reservations, I was seated at one of the hallway tables where people constantly brush by, and I get to mingle with all the rear ends of those standing at the crowded bar. A nice frigid breeze blew in on us every time someone opened the door – every couple of min’s. Didn’t see a server for 15 min’s so we just left. This is getting to be common here.

    Superb atmosphere, food, and service. Azzurro was actually our backup choice after our preferred restaurant was booked, but glad it worked out that way. Entrees were excellent, cocktails fab (wife was delighted the bartender used real lime juice instead of mix for her gimlet), and both the indoor and patio dining areas very attractive. Only thing I’d change is serving crusty bread instead of soft bread with the meal. We will return.

    Wonderful food , Wonderful service , The Ambiance has always been perfect.

  95. Carl Judnick 2019/08

    Great Italian food. Because of the heat we just had an appetizer. The scollops gorganzolla hit the spot, after shopping at my wife’s favorite store, Talbots, which is right next door.

    I’m always shocked to see the lower rating on this restaurant because I have a truly wonderful experience every time I go. The ambiance is warm and inviting (got a great seat by the fire) and my server was attentive. They have numerous specials each night, a brick oven for their pizzas, the best pastas and a great drink selection.

    Great food. Great atmosphere.

  98. Karen Shoaf 2019/06

    Happy hour is low key and delicious for business or pleasure. Mom raved about her rockfish dinner for weeks!

  99. Thomas Mark 2019/06

    Yum, flavor define with good herbs and spices. Service is on point and couldn’t ask for more. When there is good weather, they have a nice patio to watch the traffic on river road.

  100. Bonnie Kanas 2019/05

    Our food was fabulous. Our bartender/server was wonderful. The heat was unbearable. I cannot imagine coming back until the outside temp begins to average 76°or less.Fix the AC now. A pizza oven is great to have but not if it affects the restaurant’s atmosphere.

  101. Johanna Leinmueller 2019/04

    Nice atmosphere and bar tender. Food just okay.

  102. Markley Kautz-Scanavy 2019/04

    Just discovered this gem! We loved our first meal there, and the service was great!

  103. Cindy Young 2019/04

    The food was “meh”- not bad, but not exceptional and definitely overpriced, as a result. The vinaigrette on my salad had no real flavor and was so sour that my eyes watered. The half of a twice baked potato served with our entrees was overdone and seemed reheated or overheated (“charred”, was my husband’s comment). It was evident that our server was less attentive to us when compared to those who were imbibing at his other assigned tables, which can often be the case at an upscale restaurant. This was especially noticeable though, since he had others refilling the water glasses and bringing the food to the tables.

  104. Soha Ramadan 2019/03

    My first experience not bad.The Venue is ok.The food portion was a good size.I had the lobster and shrimp risotto. Not a fan of there risotto it reminds me of eating rice.The flavor was good.I might go back a bit overpriced.

  105. Brian McKeown (B) 2019/03

    Excellent food!!!

  106. John McNamee 2019/03

    It had been a long time since we have been there food was as good as we remembered it . Will be back soon.

    I have been here in the past and it was a pleasurable experience. Tonight was different. My wife and I ordered and when the food was brought to the table they had my order correct but brought her the same item I had ordered which is not what she had ordered. When we told the waiter he said something like he had hit a wrong key when he entered her order. I am eating while waiting for her order to be brought out. When it finally arrived I had finished my meal and my wife ate a few bites of hers but ended up having it boxed to go. So much for us dining together. Waiter never really apologized and never tried to make any offer for restitution. When we received the check there was also a charge for the incorrect order they bought my wife. Pretty pathetic, I bought it to his attention and had to wait for the corrected check. Sorry excuse for dining experience and less than that for the service from the waiter. (I must say that the other wait staff was very attentive to us). After all of this our waiter never even offered us a desert or discount for this fiasco. We were there for 1 hour and 45 minutes and won’t be going back or recommending to my clients anymore.

    Excellent meal. Attentive staff.

  110. JK golden 2018/12

    I was told that the rockfish was AMAZING but it was a bland overpriced meal. the appetizer was good

  111. Nemer Muallem 2018/12

    The pasta and dessert selections are solid, however other menu items are mediocre and the service can be a little slow.

  112. Mason Curtis 2018/12

    Delectable food, vibrant outdoor seating, and kind staff!
    (Not cheap, but this restaurant is worth the price.)

  113. Jennifer Martin 2018/12

    One of my favorite Italian restaurants in Richmond. I’ve never had a bad meal. The atmosphere is fun though can sometimes be a bit crowded. It’s a little calmer in the outdoor section. The pasta dishes are my favorites. I’ve also had really good lamb. Ordering is very difficult as there are too many delicious items. I don’t recommend the dessert options, though I am usually too full to even consider them.

  114. John Smith 2018/11

    Great place with great social scene at bar and outdoor seating!

  115. Laura Hiller 2018/10

    Went here for our anniversary and highly recommend coming to Azzurro for a special occasion, they really make a point to make it special. Every member of their staff went above and beyond and we can’t wait to return. Food was delicious as well!

  116. Mariana Oliveria 2018/09

    Great place to go , I love everything!

  117. Jenny Maraghy 2018/09

    Great pizza! And the lasagna or fresh fish dishes are also a favorite. Great neighborhood bar as well. No time to eat there…. we have been happy with the take out. Great service as well. And on occasion you’ll hit the happy hour featuring Prisoner …. a wine fav of mine. Cheers! Love this place!

  118. Lorraine Reynolds 2018/08

    Amazing atmosphere and food! Can’t wait to go back!

  119. Jordan Traylor 2018/07

    Awful, awful service!!! Food had no taste and very overpriced! Will not ever go back!!

  120. Amanda Anderson 2018/06

    We mentioned in our reservation that it was our anniversary. When we arrived, we were seated in a little corner area and the table had cute heart confetti on it. Our food was so delicious and our server was so attentive and knowledgeable. We plan to go back soon!

    First time going and last. I had the chef’s special and it was good, but my wife had one of the regular menu items and couldn’t eat it. She took it home and I tasted it when we got home and it was terrible. Couldnt get the nasty fish taste out of my mouth and understood why she was feeling sick after dinner. I usually don’t rate resturants but this one is over rated and over priced. Never again. Service was good.

  122. Alex Roan 2018/04

    Amazing food! Amazing service! Loved everything about it!

  123. Blake Bullard 2018/04

    I eat here about once a year and always forget how mediocre it is, especially considering the price. Most recently I ordered the orrechiette with broccoli and sausage. It looked like something that would come out of a grocery store freezer bag. It tasted fine, but really looked like they used frozen vegetables in this dish.

  124. K S 2018/02

    My wife and I enjoy going to Azzurro in the River Road Shopping Center occasionally for date night. We have been there for special occasions (Valentine’s Day and Anniversaries) as well as just for happy hour or a quick bite. Azzurro is more of a higher end restaurant. We usually spend a hundred bucks or so on a couple of entrees and a bottle of wine. Service is usually pretty great. The location is convenient for those in the near west end. Azzurro is easy to find and parking is easy and free. I believe reservations are recommended during peak hours or special occasions like Valentine’s Day.

  125. Cheryl Gallagher 2018/01

    Great food

  126. En Esstah 2017/11

    A nice place, service was okay, selection of food and wines pretty good. This is a place to which you will return if you really like it but also one that does not stand out as a ‘best in category’.

  127. J Baker 2017/11

    Don’t order the Ribeye! They burned my steak twice last night. On third try, came out black as charcoal 🙁

  128. Merri Ferrell 2017/10

    Pretentious attempt at Italian food. I met a colleague for lunch and in spite of only a handful of patrons, the service was abysmally slow. My friend, who is a model of decorum and courtesy, kept trying to catch the eye of the staff to ask about the status of our order but after several attempts nothing was forthcoming. We were not given water and I asked for steamed milk for my coffee which by then was cold. We had an appointment so time was pressing. At one point the owner/manager (?) responded to our inquiry about the status of our modest frittata (we had been sitting for 45 minutes or more by then) and I asked if I could have my coffee warmed up, since by now it was stone cold. He said “we don’t have a microwave; this is FINE DINING.” Given the poor service (no bread, no water, cold coffee, one hour to get what was essentially a lump of eggs with a hunk of cheese melted on the top and some wilted bagged mesclun salad) the pretense of “fine dining” escaped me. I said “right.”
    He then took it upon himself to publicly admonish me by saying this was a public restaurant and I needed to “be polite.” So for more money that it’s worth, you can go to Azzurro and get poor service, mediocre food, a bad attitude of conflated importance and a manager whose idea of “polite” is a temper tantrum launched on a patron. Richmond is full of great restaurants. There is no reason to waste your time at Azzurro.

  129. Geoff Switz 2017/09

    Ok, it isn’t a cheap meal, but it is one of my parents favorites. Eat outside if you can in the evening. The air is better this close to the river.

  130. bill berry 2017/07

    Have been here a number of times and it never disappoints. One of the few places I go where I have difficulty deciding which of many great dishes to choose

  131. John Duke 2017/05

    Better than your usual Italian restaurant near the University of Richmond. Outdoor seating is nice, though inside can be noisy. A well-stocked wine cellar with knowledgeable staff.

    So-so service and quality, which was surprising. We’ve been there several times and it was very good. This was not so good. The front desk left our guests at the bar for 30 minutes until they realized what was wrong. Menus were left with us for another half-hour until our order was taken. The risotto special was not very good and seemed thrown together rather than truly prepared. The pizza was ok. The scampi was acceptable. The veal picata was all right. Overall, it was a passable meal. $110 before including drinks, then tax and tip, coming to $205 total. For that money, I’m not impressed.

  133. Kerry/Joel B 2017/02

    Food really good. Enjoyed being outside
    Waitress was superb!

  134. Solar Flare 2017/01

    It was our 10 year anniversary and so we made reservations there and everything was perfect. The staff was super professional even our waitress, the food was cooked perfectly and we sat outside and the patio was clean, well lit, very romantic, all around very enjoyable. Highly recommend.

  135. AMY SOSA 2017/01

    Delicious and wonderful service. I had orrechiette with sausage and broccoli in a creamy vodka sauce that was the best I’ve ever had. Our servers provided excellent service and it was a beautiful day to sit out on the patio. Highly recommended.

  136. Charles Markarian 2016/12

    Great food and service,

  137. robert iannacone 2016/09

    So, the food was not terrible but it was very bland. We were seated at the worst table in the whole restaurant. It was right next to the bussing/cash register area and people that walked by kept running into our arms while we were eating. I personally feel no one should be sat at that table EVER and they should consider getting rid of it. It definitely did not feel like I was in a nice resturant. I will not be returning any time soon.

  138. Albert M 2016/08

    Over priced. Mediocre Italian.

  139. Charles Teixeira 2016/08

    Overpriced and poorly cooked/presented.

  140. Bob Rodi 2016/04

    It is a very upscale restaurant with great food

  141. Erika Dunville 2016/03

    Great for gathering with friends or a romantic dinner with the hubby! Excellent vegetarian options!

  142. Katie Clark 2016/01

    I always have a lovely time here. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to help with recommendations and accommodationsee for my food allergy. Great place for a special night out or a cocktail and snack after work!

  143. Peter Fisher-Duke (zepter) 2016/01

    Very reasonable prices for lunch. Service was not exceptional and food was pretty good

  144. Don Jenkins 2015/10

    We must have eaten at a different Azzuro’s at River Rd. Shop Ctr. than many of the other reviewers! It surely was not a good experience. Sunday at 5 P.M. and almost totally empty and yet we were stuffed into a small table next to a wall. Service left a lot to be desired-had to ask for coffee refills. Appeared that most of the wait-staff in the entire restaurant were up tight over something. Appetizer and both entrees had very little flavor, and certainly not what you would expect from a supposedly high-end expensive restaurant. They should be very thankful we are not from Style Mag. or another publication doing a blind taste-test and review because they would have gotten a scathing article written. No alcoholic drinks and tab was $94. before tip. No way it was worth $40. We have gotten much better Italian food at almost any of the little joints that are all Richmond. But there is nothing here that Robert Irvin couldn’t fix!!

  145. priorww1 2015/04

    I got sick from the Corn Beef Hash and Fried Eggs and, after letting the restaurant know, did not receive any reply. I tried again to get in touch with Azzurro’s to let them know, and the manager sent back a lengthy reply apologizing for the incident and asking for the chance to make it up. I know he is probably legally-bound to not admit fault for stuff like food sickness, so I wasn’t offended by his questioning the validity of the complaint altogether.

    Anyways, the apology email was thoughtful, well-structured, and professional. Still not 100% sure if I’ll go back (food-related sickness, especially from meat, really really really sucks), but I would give my recommendation to a friend.

  146. Mark Stock 2014/03

    Initially disappointed… very impressed with manager’s response to email… will be trying it again.

  147. rfahy991 2013/03

    We’ve been there a number of times and each visit seemed to be less pleasant. Last night was the worst and we won’t be going back. I had the veal parm and it was not good at all. The veal patty was definitely a frozen patty, little to no taste, the gravy tasted like it was right out of a jar. My wife had the salmon which was not bad but not great. No drinks and before tip it was $84.00.
