We love this place!

Caught the taste of Sarasota and this was a homerun! Wide selection of entrants and wine to compliament. Wild boar ravioli was recommended and I would do the same! This is a very nice and formal if you wish place to have dinner. Excellent service and atmosphere. Do not this when in town!

Had the best meal of my life here...salmon with homemade pasta and plenty of prosecco! Our waiter brought me an extra glass since it was my birthday, and then they surprised us by singing me happy birthday in Italian and bringing out a beautiful gluten-free cake, since they knew one of the ladies at the table had a wheat allergy....

Located on 5th Avenue in Naples, Pazzo is a very popular place during February. Ultimately, I'm not sure why anyone is waiting, the food is not very interesting and the wine list is overpriced. The service was uninspired and the food average. Overall, there are places in Naples without a waiting list and the prices, but are just as good.

We decided to eat here as all the Italian restaurants on the street look similar in price and menu selection.

Three words: Short Rib Meatballs! Don't miss tasting this appetizer! My girlfriends and I went there and all five dinners were superb in flavor and presentation. Great portions too. They make home made pasta, they have an extensive wine list, excellent service and warm atmosphere. It was delicious and I highly recommend.

Walking along 5th Avenue we had tons of choices, stopped at Pazzo because the sign outside said #1 Italian Restaurant in Naples. While the food and service was good, we would not say that they were outstanding.
