“PAZZO - Great Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

I have heard great reviews about Pazzo but this evening was my first dinning experience in this great locally owned restaurant on Hilton Head Island. The food and service is excellent. I love the homemade Italian bread. Everything is so good. Pazzo offers a nice selection of classic dishes and the prices are very reasonable. If you love Italian food you will love and appreciate Pazzo!

“Wonderful slice of Italy on HHI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

Just came from a lovely dinner at Pazzo. From the warm and friendly server to the delicious food, Pazzo was an excellent choice for my family of four. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is a cozy and attractive restaurant with outdoor seating as well, and about a dozen or so tables indoors. We had two different veal dishes, soup, manicotti, pizza, and spaghetti and meatballs, followed by cannolis and sorbet for dessert. Excellent food, nice portions, great prices. So glad to have found Pazzo!

“Primo Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

This was our first visit to Pazzo, but it certainly won't be our last. We bought a restaurant.com certificate to try it and upon returning home from dinner, went back on the website and bought another. The food was so good! We started with their homemade Italian bread which was perfectly baked- crispy on the outside, soft and warm on the inside. My husband ordered a Pasta Fagioli soup which he reported was excellent and we both ordered the Pazzo Salad- also fantastic. Both entrees were veal dishes- his the Sorrentina (with eggplant and tomato based sauce) and mine the Valdostano (stuffed with goodies and a wine sauce). Again, not disappointed.
The restaurant is small and intimate with traditional Italian decor (although I did notice a larger room off the main dining area for larger parties).. The restrooms were spotless- always a good sign. The kitchen is open for viewing (nothing to hide). Pazzo has a good, varied menu selection and prices are very reasonable. Because Pazzo does very little advertising (is not even in the Restaurant Book), it may be a best kept secret which is unfortunate, as I highly recommend it for locals and visitors alike.

“Pazzo e fantastico!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

Fantastico!!! Just like any small cafe found in Italy. What a great find. Forget the bigger names on the island and try Pazzo's. You won't be disappointed.

“I love Pazzo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

As far as simple classic Italian on Hilton Head Island Pazzo can't be beat. The pricing is great and the food is far better than anything else in the price point. They have a full bar and great staff. It is a must try!
