Competent Bartender, Very Good Food

Whether you sit at the bar for Happy Hour, stop in for an early dinner or stop in for dinner later, Pazzo's has very good food. Be sure to try the short rib meatballs. Pasta and seafood are very good here. Nice wine selection too. Been coming here for years and the quality of food is maintained.

Great evening with friends at this restaurant. Variety of dishes chosen and they were all very good. Quantity was a bit big ...couldn't finish all of it but will definitely return.

Pazzo lived up to its recommendation from the best local "foodie" friends. The mozzarella tomato salad was great, calimari (our real test) was great, as were the pastas. We couldn't get past the pasta part of the menu, but there are many other choices. A new favorite !!

Pazzo really needs a better hostess. @rjh the same thing happened to us! We made reservations (via a concierge) and were summarily turned away and mocked upon our arrival. (and we were repeat customers). We HAVE given Pazzo a second chance (the previous visit we had reservations and were forgotten at the bar). We prefer restaurants that WANT our business.... More

The food was exceptional and our waiter was a big help in choosing the right selection. We waited too long for a table but we did not have a reservation. Be sure to get one. We went there on a Wednesday night and the place was jammed. The hostess was inexperienced and seemed to be doing on the job training.... More

It's unfortunate to read some of the negative reviews on here about this restaurant, as I believe they are more nuance than norm. We came here for our 6h anniversary and the meal and service were both excellent. This is one of the better meals I've had in Naples in a long, long time. I've eaten at their sister restaurants...

The food was very good (three Caesars, one mixed greens, two groupers, an Alfredo & a bolognese), but $11.80 for 4 add'l anchovies on one ($5.50) salad... Really? And the waiter neglected to mention the upcharge.

Dear Char95, Something is definitely wrong here and we ask that you contact Keith (Customer Relations Manager) via email at keith@gr8team.net so we can look into this further. We would like to find your receipt and see what happened because the normal charge for extra anchovies is only $2.95. More
