We really enjoyed our dinner at Pazzo! They have a wide selection of dishes on their early bird menu. Everyone in our party enjoyed his meal. The service was great. A lovely evening!

This restaurant has always been a fine restaurant and most recently has been improving itself to be the best Italian restaurant in Naples. Bravo

Pazzo is another wonderful restaurant on 5th. The service is the best and the food amazing. The fresh pasta is always a treat. Never disappoints.

This is a lovely restaurant in downtown Naples with some outdoor seating. The inside is very comfortable - it's not too loud inside so you can have a conversation. They have a huge bar too. Wine selection is excellent. Food outstanding - with lots of vegetarian selections. I had their pumpkin squash ravioli - yummy.

We arrived for dinner @ 5:30 last Saturday to take in their early dining menu. We were told we would be seated at 6:00. Which coincidentally is when the early dining ends. There were several open tables outside and some inside. In fact only one table had been sat on the patio. I asked the manager why they weren't seating.... More

I've been to this restaurant dozens of times and have never been disappointed. Don't expect to carry on a quiet conversation over dinner. This place gets loud with the bustle of both locals and tourists alike. They have a nice wine list and their veal piccata is out of this world. Reservations are a must and I tend to avoid... More

Nice early evening deal, two entrees and a bottle of wine for $35. I had the wild boar Bolognese, excellent dish prepared with house made noodles - I couldn't finish the entire meal there was so much

I have been eating at Pazzo Italian Café since it opened its doors, and have always had a great meal. On my last visit, the menu had been reworked and the food was nothing to rave about. Not sure what kind of place they are trying to become but the cuisine is no longer a casual bistro with great comfort... More

Three of us walked 5th Avenue looking at menus and ate at Pazzo. It is the off-off season in Naples and Pazzo was the only restaurant that had more than a handful of people eating there. We all had pasta dishes and the food was delicious but the portions are huge (too much food).The service was top notch and the... More
