This BYOB Italian restaurant has a nice location in downtown Bethlehem's bustling Main Street area. Outdoor seating is available and nicely done. I arrived about 10 minutes after the rest of our party having parked the car a couple of blocks away. When I asked about wineglasses (seeing none on the table) my group indicated that our waitress was getting... More

That's all I really want to say. I'm Italian and grew up eating Italian food. This isn't it. The linguine with clams was supposed to come with grape tomatoes and didn't have a one (just checked menu) and I was expecting a nice white wine broth but this had been thickened. Partner doesn't like this word but in fact the... More

My husband and have traveled to Italy once a year since we both retired and have eaten wonderful Italian meals in many Italian cities and towns. The Molto Pazzo experience is as close to being in Italy as one can come. The pasta is perfectly "al dente" and that pasta is not swimming in "run of the mill" (i.e. -... More

Before I made reservations for dinner I read all of the reviews and had mixed feelings to eat here. Well, now I'm giving my review. My family went here for a birthday celebration last night. Let me just say that when you call a restaurant on a Saturday, the same day you want to eat there and there is availability... More

Everytime I go to Molto Pazzo I am delighted with the service and food. Stacey and Ralph, the owners, are always ensuring their guests are pleased. I can not say enough about how enchanting a dinner experience can be at Molto Pazzo :) P.S. Don't forget to bring your own wine, it's BYOB!

I've never experienced such a rushed "dinner" experience in my life. My husband, son and I along with two other couples had a 6:30 reservation for a Saturday night. We were a few minutes late due to rainy weather and limited parking. We immediately noticed on our table a reservation card for 7:45 for the party after us. That gave... More

A nice stop if you're looking for good Italian food in a family atmosphere. The owners do whatever is necessary to make you feel at home. Having been at their other restaurant the quality and service doesn't change. Portions are substantial with many items to choose from. You will not go away hungry.

The food was great and the staff made us feel like family. We decided to venture out on a snowy Sunday evening and we were so glad we did - great place.

Owner did the cooking. It was very large portions. We felt like we were back in Italy. Amazing. Would recommend all to try. It was reasonably priced.

4 of us went last evening for dinner as a recommendation (owner is a friend of a friend). Am of Italian heritage and very familiar with Italian food so when I went, there was a greater expectation, I guess. The decor is just average... Had to have a drape at front door so cold, wind would not bother diners. The... More
