“Great Pizza - just like Naples”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Pazzo Pomodoro is a new restaurant in Vienna, VA. We went ther for lunch and had a Pizza Magherita. It was fantastic, just like we have had in Naples. The crust is thin yet chewy. The sauce is fantastic, and unlike many pizza places, they do skimp on it. In traditional Neapolitan style, the mozzarella is placed on the sauce in rounds, topped with fresh basil. What is not to like? The dinner menu looks very interesting and we will definitely try it. We have been told it is very popular on Friday and Saturday evenings, with lines out the door. We have heard that the dinners are very good, and reasonabley priced. We will definitely give dinner a try, and pizza on a Saturday afternoon is assured. They do not take reservations.

Reviewed February 16, 2013

Pazzo Pomodoro is a great Italian cantina. A little piece of Italy in the heart of Vienna, Va. Great food, great service and a friendly bar. The pizza is the best, the seafood is amazing and the homemade pasta is perfect. A great place for lunch and dinner. The warm and inviting atmosphere will keep you coming back for more!

“What a great time!!!”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

I had dinner with family friends at Pazzo Pomodoro last evening. What a pleasant time!!! Pazzo just opened in November and already they have a large following. I had one of their nightly specials and I really enjoyed the treat. They filleted the fish tableside and I thought that I was dining back in the Mediterranean.Homemade tiramasu finished the meal nicely. Come early - from 6 - 7:30 pm, this is a popular place. Good luck Pazzo!!!! You are a special place!!!!

“Napoli Comes To Vienna”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

How about a genuine Italian restaurant that is filled with Italian cooks and wait staff? One with a wood fired pizza oven and a varied menu of other Italian dishes as well? The pizza is terrific, but you probably will want to order the entire menu when you take a look at it.

I have eaten here five times since it opened about 2 months ago, with a variety of friends and family. All together, we have sampled about half of the items on the menu. Everything has been absolutely delicious, with a few items, such as the brasciola and vermicelli con vongole, earning "best I've ever eaten" remarks. For appetizers, be sure to try the prosciutto with mozzarella, served with a balsamic vinegar reduction. the cheese is made in house. Dessert? How about some sweet kisses from Sophia Loren ? The "Baci di Sofia Loren" are little chocolate cups filled with zabaione and fresh berries that I guarantee you will love. Also, don't miss the specials. Last night's pork chop in mushroom / barolo sauce was exquisite.

The decor would be at home at many places I've eaten in Italy, the staff is energetic and friendly, and you the dress is casual.
