We stopped in without reservations on a Saturday night and sat on the more formal side. The service was great, but she did not know many details about the menu or the special about how it was prepared or the prices. The food was very good,but not special. The Cesaers salad was well done. The pate was good, but the... More

Great find, thanks to the recommendation of a friend. Our table enjoyed lobster risotto, caprese salad with fresh mozzarella, trout, soft-shell crabs fried in light tempura batter, and scallops. All served with their own focaccia and olive oil. Our server could not have been more attentive. Only less than positive remark is that the panna cotta was not firm, which... More

Pazzo knows how to cater to both boisterous family & more subdued diners very effectively within the same dining space. The space-economic pizza parlor is great for families to sit with slices & sodas, and the dining room allows those who want a quieter experience to eat from a well-thought-out menu without being bothered by families. I like the dining... More

The interior is unassuming but do not be fooled. They make very nice dishes from fresh food and are terrific with people who have allergies. The chef even comes out and made a special meal for me, assuring I had a good time and delicious food.

Dinner for wife and me and grandaughter. In the heart of Southern Village. Frozen yogurt store next door. Nice atmosphere. Pizza diners on one side and full dinner on the other with the bar. Thought that the menu was somewhat limited with only about 5-6 pastas and about 5 entres. Disappointed that no dinner salad came with the pasta and... More

We have eaten at this restaurant for 10 years and can't wait until we can go back again. We eat here every few weeks and recommend the pizza or dining room to anyone.... More

One half of Pazzo is the pizza place. The other half has a full service bar and table service. Unless it is early on the weekends, it would be best to have a reservation. The menu changes monthly. Each evening there are a couple of special offerings. A neighborhood gem in Southern Village. Chef Seth Kingsbury takes pride in what... More
