“Great food and wonderful service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We have been in Naples for 2 months and dined at many of the restaurants here. While all of them have been delicious and enjoyable Pazzo was the best. All four of the meals were outstanding and the deserts were perfect! Our server, Adriano was knowledgeable about all of the dishes including the ingredients, how it is cooked, and what could be substituted. Just a delightful dining experience!!

“Shocked at the treatment I received...worst dining experience I've had in a very long time.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Ate a crab linguini dish here and nearly every other bite had crab shells in it. As I tired of spitting out portions of too many bites, I advised our server of the problem. He looked at me baffled as if shells are a part of the dish and didn't understand my complaint, as demonstrated by asking whether I wanted to wrap it up to go. I definitely told him no. Then the maitre d had the audacity to tell me that he and the chef went through the dish and there were no shells, as if trying to convince me that hard crab shells should be overlooked and considered soft crab meat. Needless to say, I will not be returning here nor should you as you may also be given an education as to the virtues of eating exoskeleton.

Dear Judy Y,

We are sorry you had this experience and with this kind of feedback we have reviewed the staff and retrained some. I can assure you that this kind of service is unacceptable. We do hope you give us another try in the future.

“Outstanding Italian cuisine in a stylish ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

Returned here with friends this week, after a great experience last month, and we were not disappointed. Our friends sampled the fish and chicken specials, but I could not pass up the coniglio, which once again was done to perfection. The wonderful food preparations were matched by the attentive, professional service and by the warm and upscale ambience. This has become our favorite Italian restaurant in the Naples area.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

We went to Pazzo with another couple while in Naples in March. It was some of the best food I have had. And the service was great, not pushy at all. Our waiter was very honest about the dishes and told us which were his favorites. We were not disappointed and will definitely return on our next trip through town. Our reservation was for a later dinner slot so we did not feel rushed. The wine selections our waiter helped us make were also spot on. We left very content and recommend this place to anyone looking for an adult dining experience in downtown Naples.
