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

We usually go to Sweet Ginger next door but on a whim decided to try Pazzo Pomodoro. What a wonderful surprise! The place was buzzing - lots of activity around 7:30 pm on a Friday night. The host, who may have been one of the owners, was very friendly and seated us right away. We didn't have a reservation but... More

We enjoyed sea bass and vegetarian lasagna. But, hard to hear at our table. Too many hard surfaces reflect the sound- floor, walls, celing.

This little gem is in a shopping plaza and has authentic Italian food. We are in Falls Church on business but a local told us about this restaurant so we decided to give it a try and we were not disappointed. The angel hair pasta was delicous and the sauce was just right. My colleague had chicken but thought it... More
