The stretch of Fifth Avenue from Third St. to Ninth St. has as many Italian restaurants as what remains of New York's Little Italy. Many are good. It's hard to stand out in that crowd. This place does. The hostess is friendly, hospitable, accommodating. Our server was prompt and attentive. He did a good job of explaining a complex menu.... More

Both had a lot of flavor, and the squash sauce in the ravioli with walnut crumbles is very unique and tasty. Since it's off season thus is a deal, and we left with a $22... More

I came in after a day of celebrating the lives of those who lost their lives on 9/11 and since. I had a craving for their pesto, and asked Joe at the bar for suggestions. They have a dish on the menu with chicken, but I wanted the spicy sausage I saw on a different menu item. "Not a problem"... More

Had dinner here with another couple of friends. restaurant offers outdoor and indoor seating and we choose outdoors. Service was very good as was the food quality. I can recommend the Arugula salad and the Shrimp Scampi. Just a heads up that the food is on the expensive side and $9 95 for a glass of average house wine is... More

Decided to book Pazzo for a birthday meal after reading about the amazing story of the server receiving the $1500 tip. We thought that if someone was that generous, it must be a pretty special place - and it was, we were not disappointed! Right from the moment we arrived, the attention to detail was spot on.
