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

My friend and I had an excellent dinner here in July. We were greeted warmly at the door and seated promptly. The portions were large and delicious (we ate much too much!) and the service (our waiter was Stan), excellent. The wine list was extensive, and the bottle of red that was recommended to us was perfect. I'll be back!

We have visited Pazzo in the past and really enjoyed ourselves. During the winter in high season it can be a little hectic and rushed so we were hoping for a nice relaxing pleasant dinner during our July visit which of course is slow season in SW Fl. Our server was very pleasant and friendly and did his best to... More

Went there for dinner last night. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The restaurant is dated and in need of more updated look. I liked the pesto and olive oil to start but bread was just a bit to crunchy for me. I wasn't that hungry so ordered a green salad which was fresh but just basic and had... More

We visited Pazzo with our family and as always, we weren't disappointed. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the Tuscan white bean soup. All of our entrees were fantastic. Our server Sean was very friendly and attentive. Overall, a great experience -- we will definitely be back!
