Pazzo! Italian Cafe Ratings and Reviews

A nice place with a very pleasant server. I ordered the grouper Picata which at $38 for a 4oz piece of grouper and a small bit of pasta a poor value. The wine list is extensive but pricey. I probably will try other places before I return.

We made a reservation for 530 pm with the intention of ordering from Pazzo's Early Bird menu.
Once seated, we requested the Early Bird menu, and we're told that unless we had called and made a reservation directly with Pazzo and requested to make use of the Early Bird menu, we would not be able to order from the Early Bird menu.
Apparently Pazzo, just ten days before, had instituted a new program where they are limiting the number of Early Bird reservations they take.
When we requested of the manager that we might be able to order Early Bird, that we're seasonal and had just arrived back in town and were unaware of Pazzo's program change, he categorically refused our request.
I'm sorry, you don't ambush customers in that way.
Regardless of the food and service, we'll NEVER be back.

Were reserved through open table for 5:15 for early dining. We could not have the early bird special because we reserved through open table even though we reserved for 5:15. We were told that Open table does not offer this choice and were told to call instead. This should specified on the app an or once we check in for our meal.
Everything at the restaurant was great except this.
Nice varied menu with italian dominant choices and with an very extensive wine list.
I had the best veal picatta to date. Everyone was more that satisfied with their choie of meal and quantities were very reasonable without being overwhelming. You can dine inside or out without being squeezed in small space.

Our appetizers were truly outstanding, and my wife's entree was really good as well, but, I suspect I ordered the wrong main course. A veal dish with long peppers. I was as described, but, somehow just did not come together for me. Tiramisu was also excellent. One problem is that we were not seated until 20 minutes after our reservation time. I know that we are in the high season now, but if I restaurant cannot seat me in a timely fashion now, I will certainly not support them in the low season.

Wonderful restaurant! Very friendly staff and outstanding food. They have several different gluten free pastas and are very willing to prepare dishes gluten free. The rigatoni arabiatta was particularly delicious even made with gluten free pasta.

I have eaten at Pazzo's very often and had always been very happy with the food. This time, however, I was not. I ordered the Angel hair pasta with the little cheese balls of mozzarella and they were cold! Not a good combination! Ir will not prevent me from going back, but the next time I will ask that the food be hot.
Food disappointing, service unprofession ...
Food disappointing, service unprofessional, My strip steak was tougher than my shoe soles and I am not joking. Absolutely not worth the money, we even had to ask for a cold wrap or ice bucket for our bottle of wine. The whole evening from food quality to service and price left a lot to be desired. We would advise anyone interested to completely avoid this restaurant.

My son, mother in law and father in law ate with me in New Year's Eve. It was clear that the night was busy for Pazzo but the food and service were impeccable. I had the best pork chop ever. My mother in law raved about her veal and the others ordered the sirloin and loved theirs too. I will definitely go back.

Our server was not very pleasant and kept trying to rush us through our meal. Our table of 7 was very tight and awkward and we asked about the table beside which was and remained empty and we were told we could not use it. However, the food was hot, delicious and everyone left pleased with their meal.

Had a reservation for 8:15. Arrived on time and was told there was a 25 minute wait. General manager was a complete jerk and clearly doesn't understand that he's in the hospitality businesss.
Service was great but food was sub par. We've been here many times over the years but will likely not be back for a while.

Pazzo is one of our preferred restaurants; unfortunately reservations are not always honored. There was once again a delay in our reservation. This is now the third time!The managers often act if they are "doing us the favor" rather than making the situation better.
Be careful Pazzo - you may want your loyal customers in the off season!

Food was wonderful. Our waitress was excellent. Out table was horrible! Practically in the kitchen. We listened to chef shouting orders the entire evening. We asked to change our table upon arrival but we're told no. I've booked reservations on open table here twice and have had bad tables each time.

We arrived slightly late for our booking (5mins) and was asked to take a drink at the bar while they cleared our table. It took 40 minutes to then be seated but we were given $16 dollars off the bill for a complimentary drink. The food was fantastic, full of flavour and reasonably priced.
I would return again and would recommend it to anyone.

Arrived on time for 830 res didn't get seated until 9 . Had to wait ten min for a waiter . He tried to make us happy thanks for the effort . Food was just ok had better meal at Bice and Miramar . Won't hurry back but it was busy season !!

Took a chance on this restaurant with my family and was totally delighted. The appetizers were full of flavor. The entrees were traditional with a touch of flair. I especially liked the Veal Parete. The wine was superb. And the waiter was a character from Cleveland. The only problem was the outdoor table which left us unattended for large spells of time. But, everyone agreed that it was worth a return visit.

Always like Pazzo. It was an especially happening place when we were there on Thursday night. 5th Ave was jammed and we had a great table outside for people watching. My only comment to the restaurant would be is to add some specials or some additions to the menu.

If you have ever eaten pasta in a Italian New York restaurant then you can appreciate
how poor the taste quality of of your pasta is. You truly need to change the recipes you
are using to make your different sauces..

Great birthday dinner for my dad! We were sorted promptly upon arrival and greeted by our server Brandy promptly. 3 of the guys in our party ordered the pork chop and said it was amazing!!! I had the salmon and it was fabulous - the salmon was cooked perfectly, the sauce SO flavor able and the presentation was visibly appealing. Brandy, was personable, knowledgeable and efficient. All in all, an excellent experience!!
