About Olazzo – the Best Italian Restaurant in Maryland

Olazzo is a family owned and operated Italian restaurant, founded by brothers Roberto and Ricardo Pietrobono. Sons of Italian immigrants, the Pietrobono brothers have been providing the Washington DC Metro Area with an Italian-American cuisine reminiscent of their days growing up in a pasta-centric household.

Since 2002, the attentive service and quaint yet comfortable atmosphere, have made both their Bethesda and Silver Spring locations neighborhood landmarks. With outstanding


Using only the freshest ingredients, Olazzo offers concise, well-executed classics such as Lasagna Bolognese, Linguine with Sausage and Peppers, and Penne Pasta with Homemade Meatballs, along with a lengthy wine list.

Both locations were remodeled, with much of the work done by the Pietrobono brothers (with the help of their father, a long time bricklayer). The classy yet rustic décor provides the perfect atmosphere for a romantic dinner, family celebration or any other dining occasion.
