Our thin crust pizza is cooked to order in our brick oven, to give it a crisp, delicious flavor. All the sauces, dough, salads, and salad dressings are created by our Chefs every day, in house. We never use frozen ingredients, and we don't even own a microwave! With great ingredients like this, it is no wonder we are able to offer so many entrees under 500 calories! Come see for yourself, have a seat at our open kitchen. Watch our Chefs create amazing Italian food, using family recipes with a modern twist. Pazza Bistro is fresh, casual, Italian.

“Fresh alternative for fast food Italian”
Reviewed May 14, 2012

I was recently headed to Chipotle's, which is next door to Pazza Bistro, but I decided to give this place a try. You choose your pasta and your sauce, or pizza type (12-inch size only). After ordering at the counter, the food is brought out to you. I had the pesto sauce, which was fresh and flavorful. Pasta was a little gummy, but maybe that's the homemade style.The side salad was only shredded lettuce with a spoonful of cheese. Overall, it was OK for a quick lunch, but I doubt I will go back. Probably appeals more to the many college students who live nearby.

“Italian food and pizza with a twist”
Reviewed April 18, 2012

Pazza Bistro is a casual, sit-down restaurant with menus posted on the wall. The food is Italian, but with innovative flavor combinations not typical of other Italian restaurants. It is a rather noisy but fun place to eat in a party atmosphere.

“Great college town small restaurant.”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Pizza is probably their specialty but we had two different pasta dishes that we really enjoyed. This is a college student oriented restaurant so don't think fancy, but do think fun. Staff was very friendly. We stayed at the Hampton and this place is about 5 minutes away. Do it unless you are a sophisticate.
