“Fantastic casual Italian place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

We went there during Christmas Eve and had a great dinner. The place is exactly what I imagined it to be based on the other reviews. They have fast and friendly service, the food was fresh, hot and delicious. We loved it

“An amazing little restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012 via mobile

Having just arrived in Hilton Head, seven of us struggled to find a place that could take all of us last minute. After nearly settling for a carry-out option we wandered upon this place. What a find!

The atmosphere was relaxed, dim and kind of romantic.

The food was amazing. Everyone raved about the pre-meal bread and dipping sauce. People were already planning to come back after eating only that. The quality of the food was above average, especially for the price of the meals. The Creme Brûlée was the best several of us had ever had.

The service was very professional and courteous. I got the impression we caught them off guard at first so service was slow for a bit until more assistance arrived. I don't think this would normally be the case though.

The experience was amazing and one I would recommend to anyone. Check this gem out, especially if you appreciate quality food.

“Fabulous Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

Pazzo is a small intimate restaurant tucked behind Santa Fe restaurant. The decor makes one think of small trattorias in Italy. The menu is filled with excellent choices and the daily specials are hard to resist. The clams oregenata are the best I've had since NYC. When we want a great Italian meal, we always choose Pazzo!

“unfriendly Staff & average food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

Tucked away at the back of a shopping plaza opposite Shelter Cove, we were a family of 4, (kids 8 & 1). Staff were not very friendly to begin with, they have no Kids menu, but will do a small portion of any pasta on the Menu for $10. Wife ordered Baked Ziti which was just ok, Pizza was better. I thought food was expensive for what you got. We had a restaurant.com certificate which they wouldn't honor as they wanted a print out, would not redeem through the Restaurant.com app.

“Delicious Italian food great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2012

Hard to find tucked away behind a Fidelity Office. Worth the effort. Great and creative Italian Food- think Mario Batalli. I had a daily special, citrus salad with oranges, dried cranberries, nuts and greens. It was delicious. Thin crusted pizza is good too. Shout out to Steven who provided attentive, knowledgeable service. If you want good Italian food on Hilton Head this restaurant should be part of your vacation plans.
