“Pazzo Pizzeria in Stratford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We visited Stratford again in September and stayed at our favourite B&B, The Old Rectory, who recommended dinner downstairs at the Pazzo Pizzaria at the west end of the main drag, Ontario Street. The place was abuzz with patrons on a Sunday night; it's clearly very popular with locals, always a good sign. The service with a smile was great - helpful & quick - and our thin-crust pizza was amazing - cooked to order and sooo tasty. Definitely two thumbs up !!!

“Variety, flavour and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Every time we visit Stratford, Ontario, we visit Pazzo at least once for its amazing variety of gourmet pizza, pasta and creative cocktails. The pizzeria is decorated in warm tones and a welcoming place for an intimate dinner for two or for a few friends to dine. The food selection is amazing and delicious - have never been disappointed in at least a dozen visits. Very highly recommended.

“good food but noisy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

We arrived a bit later than planned, and had to rush to a play, so we did not order a pizza. The server helpfully told us pizzas take longer. So we ordered pasta -- which I normally avoid in restaurants -- as it's often rather under-sauced and bland. But the pastas here were excellent - very thick sauce, lots of it, and plenty of taste. My Garganelli pasta (with duck sausage, mushrooms and kale) was great. My husband's Fettuccine Milano (with chicken, spinach and mascarpone) was a little tame, but fine. The server was sympathetic to our time problem and really got us served and paid up in plenty of time to make it to the theatre. I hear the upstairs Taverna has the same menu at slightly higher prices -- and that it offers a more quiet setting. The downstairs Pizzeria where we ate was very busy and noisy. But.... good food and fast service. We'll go back. Next time we'll plan better and get there early enough to enjoy the (reportedly?) more sedate atmosphere upstairs.
