Although a bit pricey, this local restaurant had some good dishes. The calamari was a good beginning. The caesar salad, was well done but a bit small. Order the veal for a good entree.

I live nearby and so have dined here a number of times. The food has always been delicious, the service excellent, the prices fair. My only criticism is that it can get very noisy, though not much worse than other typically noisy places. As I don't enjoy that though, I make an effort to not go during mainstream hours.

I don't generally expect to find really good restaurants in strip malls but this is one. A particular claim to fame is the wood fired oven. The menu is varied--much more than pizza and pasta. Our party particularly enjoyed the Bruschette Miste and I can highly recommend the Involtini di Vitello. I was particularly taken by the wine list which... More

Great for romance, dining with friends or family. The food is very good, easy parking and a really friendly wait staff.

... what they do have is pretty good. Pizza is cooked in a wood burning oven brought over from Italy, but don't expect to find all of the usual toppings. Likewise, the selection of main courses is equally limited in comparison to most Italian restaurants, but if you don't go there expecting a particular dish, such as veal parmigiana, you... More

It would be unfair to say this is one of the "best" meals I've ever had in a restaurant, but that doesn't mean Pazzo Pomodoro is anything less than excellent. We had dinner there last night and it was terrific. Everything fresh, properly prepared, hot, and served by most attentive and friendly staff. It was great when they opened and... More

Don't let the "Cantina", "Pizzeria" on the sign fool you as it did me. This is fine dining. The lamb chops I have had twice and are amazing. And the gnocchi are to die for. The owner is Italian which was another pleasant surprise. They make their own desserts too, the tiramisu is delish. They do not take reservations so... More

It was hard for me to overcome my suspicion about the exterior of this place, as well as the 'neighborhood-Italian-eatery' ambiance upon entering....but get beyond all of that to start eating your way through the menu. That's what I'd be doing, but I visited on a trip and it's a long way from home, sadly. Our small group had some... More

I had previously written a good review of this restaurant and we have visited it several times since. I want to follow-up on subsequent experiences because they were somewhat disappointing. Primarily, the food was not the disappointment, but the service was. Once, I had ordered a latte for dessert and it was brought to me in a regular water glass.... More

The owner at Pazzo imported a beautiful blue and white ceramic patterned open fire pizza oven that dominates the view as you enter the restaurant. A little bit of New York pizzeria, a little bit of Italian family restaurant - charming. Jimmy the owner is usually there to greet you and make sure you feel welcome. There is often a... More
