It is your average pizzeria with no special desserts and usual pizzas. Nothing great but not bad either.

Again disappointed with Pazzos. We used to eat here years ago and it was great but quit when pizzas were undercooked continuously. So we tried again this summer but went with subs and surprise it was awesome. So tonight our friends who really like Pazzos asked us to go again. We went ... Total disappointment we ordered pretzels and salad... More

Love the pizza, calzones and beer selection here. The atmosphere is really fun too. The only problem is the service is super super slow no matter the time of day or how busy they are. Some people complained about the noise but it is right next to campus and it is a pizza joint/bar. It is not a quiet candlelit... More

Pazzo's is a good place to hang out and have a few beers, and it has a nice environment for watching games on the many TVs they have. Sometimes it has more of a college bar feel which can be good or bad depending on your perspective.

The beer is cold, pizza hot, and crowd noisy. Seriously, a solid choice for pizza and beer. You can catch a whole game here without hassle. The crowd is a mix of college kids and local fans. Yes, It's a quintessential college pizza bar. That said, the sandwiches and calzones we had we're not bad. Try the funky chicken if... More

I was in town late September and stayed near the UK campus. I wanted to walk through the campus area and decided to eat dinner at Pazzos. Great choice. This is a college bar but with adult pizza and beer selections. It's kind of a cool bar... several different "options" including a bar area, a traditional restaurant area with tables,... More

Husband and I tried to eat here after a UK football game and it was a 45 minute to an hour wait. Since we were starving, we decided to try another time. We went back a couple of weeks later on a Friday night and got a table immediately. The pizza was really good. It wasn't greasy, which is wonderful,... More

Pazzos offers the best pizza and sandwich variety near UK campus with many beers on tap to top it of. They even offer european imports (german for example) which really helps compared to Budweiser and Bud light. The salads however look suspiciously similar to the ones at walmart in the pre-made bags. Then again, who goes to a college bar... More
