We went here before a matinee and had really fabulous pizzas. The service was great and the food was superb.

“Nice upscale casual Italian/pizza resaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2011

As a light dinner before theatre, we had a pair of hearty appetizers, mussels and a mushroom bruschetta. Both were delicious. The service was very good, and we were out of there in time for the theatre. Recommended.

“Decent value, but the food (in the cafe) was nothing special.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2011

Please note that I did not eat at the restaurant proper, but in the cafe which offered an entirely different menu. I had the Prix fixe menu which consisted of an arugala salad with a creamy pasta containing sliced beats and peas followed by a semi-frozen strawberry dessert. Overall, the food was good, but not spectacular. Sitting on the patio was a nice idea, but if you're familiar with Stratford, the patio is located at what is probably their busiest intersection. The noise was unbearable. The service, however, was excellent. I would try this restaurant again, but next time it will be inside.

“Never Disappoints”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

We have been here several times, in the pizzreria but mostly in the restaurant which never disappoints. Appetizers and salads are always very fresh and mains presented with imagination and flair. The menu is varied enough to offer something for everyone, vegetarians, those with lighter appetites and those with larger ones. Stratford can be tough on restaurants if they are not good and Pazzo has managed to keep itself going by getting the basics right; good service and consistantly great food.

“Rocket Smash a smash hit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2011

My husband and I joined a family of friends for another great dinner in Stratford. My friend and I really enjoyed the sea scallop dinner; the ciabatta & oil were good; desserts offered variety & included chocolate, of course. But my favorite part of the meal was my Rocket Smash cocktail. Very clever to use arugula (also known as rocket) in a predinner drink. I could pretend I had an extra helping of healthy antioxidents!
