"We had a group of family in town, everyone was indecisive so I just picked a place and crossed my fingers. So glad I did, the food and service were amazing. I'm glad I have the name saved on Open Table so we can go back sometime."

"A group of friends and I headed to Chicago for Chitown Rising and knew we needed to eat. I luckily signed up for a reservation online the night before for a table of 6. (Arrived 7, not a big deal).
I had read reviews stating that the quantity of food did not match the price of food - that is for sure. I do feel that the portions could have been bigger.
They do offer bread and cheese and oil (for free), but the bread is not warm.
The bar scene is downstairs and is very lounge-y and cool.
One complaint: our waiter, in my opinion, did not check up on our table very often. I know it was NYE, but we waited a long time to finally ask for the check.
The busboys came and cleared the table and refilled water frequently, which was nice if you don't mind that.

"Another pre-Symphony dinner, another visit to Pazzo on Jackson. We ordered two specials - a spinach stuffed salmon, and the pasta special, featuring shrimp, peppers, tomato and penne in olive oil and garlic.
First the hit - the salmon was excellent. The serving size was perfect - about seven ounces of salmon fillet, stuffed with a mix of sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Done to perfection, accompanied with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh green beans, this was seafood at its most satisfying.
Now the miss. The pasta was well prepared, the garlic oil sauce well flavored, and the shrimp sufficient to fill the diner. But why mention peppers and tomatoes when the amount of vegetables provided were barely a garnish??? By actual count there were three silvers of yellow pepper in the dish, and perhaps a half a roma tomato diced small. Vegetables don't cost so much, so include them in the pasta if you advertise them!
We've been pleased in the past and will continue to patronize this restaurant. But if ingredients are offered in a special, they should be more than a garnish!!!"

"With so many great Italian restaurants in Chicago (and a multitude within walking distance of Pazzo's), I was greatly disappointed with Pazzo's. Run of the mill Italian food - a bit bland and nothing interesting. The waitress we had was inattentive and unfriendly. She acted like she was doing us a favor. A huge waste of a Saturday night dinner out, I'll never return."

"It's a plastic-menu american-italian restaurant, but the food was better than average for such places. Service was quick and friendly, meals are affordable and not disappointing. The plates are more attractive and less gargantuan than typical for restaurants with menus like this, so it was an OK place to bring a crowd on short notice."

"There are not many reliable places to eat on the loop and so finding this place was a pleasant surprise. It looks like a pizza joint but is a standard Italian with good, if not great, food. Just down the street from the Art Museum and a few blocks from Symphony Hall, this is a good place to know about when you want a good meal without paying exorbitant prices."
