Had a great dinner here and can't wait to back to Stratford to eat here again. The 2 tier seafood tower is a steal at $65, the pastas are made inhouse and it shows. Loved the burrata, also made in house. It's a beautiful room with a great view - nice view of the Avon.

On Canada Day we enjoyed the Rustica pizza (whole wheat thin crust is yummy), Italian white wine and spinach salad downstairs at the Pazzo Pizzeria. Waitress was friendly and very efficient. We will go back again.

Stratford, Ontario, dines on Shakespeare. But I have to start this review of Pazzo with Charles Dickens' opening of a Tale of Two Cities: "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." Two weeks ago my wife and I dropped into Pazzo after the theatre and had a drink in the ground floor bar. Pleasant atmosphere;... More

Whether you want a Pizza or an upscale Italian meal I would recommend this restaurant. It is on the Main Street but an easy and pleasant walk to the theatres.

We had dinner in the Pizzeria on June 28th. We ordered the antipasto for two, which I'm sorry to say was just OK. Except for the meat and olives, it was not authentic Italian. Also, the prosciutto was not as good as expected. I ordered a Caprese Pizza, which had canned cherry tomatoes on it. Seriously? At this time of... More

Arrived on Friday night and we got in just before the dinner crowd arrived. Right on the main strip, we ate in the upstairs restaurant, not the tavern. Nice atmosphere, a couple of vegetarian selections and and service was attentive without feeling rushed. Highly recommend it.

We ate here with our daughter and two friends and we all loved the place. This restaurant falls in the middle range in terms of price for Stratford restaurants. The menu consists mostly of pizzas and pastas with a selection of other choices as well. There is an excellent selection of beers on tap as well as bottled beer and... More

We had lunch at the downstairs pizzeria prior to a matinee theatre performance. We shared a spinach salad to start and the kitchen delivered it on separate plates, a nice touch. We then shared a Marco Polo pizza. The thin crust pizza reminded us of pizza in Rome. Expect to pay $10 for a salad and $10-12 for a pizza.... More

We had a romantic lunch at Pazzo Pizzeria. You can choose your own ingredients, drinks were fun (I had a Farmer's martini) - a great spot.

We were recommended by a friend to go here. We ate downstairs. The pizza is tasty, but is small for the price. It did remind me of the flavours in Italy so it was worth visit. The service was friendly. I'm not sure I'd go back as I don't believe it was value for money. However, it is a nice... More
