Pazzo! Italian Cafe Ratings and Reviews
We arrived at the bar waiting for our table, a woman tripped on the misaligned rug, spilling her entire full glass of wine onto the floor. My husband helped her up, and got her on her way...a waitress came over and my husband told her where she spilled the wine, so that it could be wiped up, and no one else slip. He suggested that maybe the restaurant refill her wine since she just got it at the bar....and the waitress snidely replied to my husband..."She tripped, we don't do that here"...to the astonishment of several patrons sitting a the bar, and several standing waiting. We all looked at each other and said, "did she just say that?"...........wow, we all were so shocked that she would say that, WOW WOW WOW...do not be surprised if this story goes all around town! My husband did tell the manager.....
We arrived early for our reservation. We were told we had to wait, go to bar. Bar was two deep so that was not available. There were numerous open tables, but "our" table for two was not ready. After a half hour wait standing by the hostess stand, the bar was full. We pointed out a table as she said ours was not ready. Finally got seated at the table we pointed out.
There are too many restaurants in Naples to put up with that kind of service. Hostess stand was completely incompetent. All that time no manager ever appeared. Not even to come by and see how food was tasting. Sorry will not be back. We are residents so during the slow summer we will still avoid this place.
The food is generally good here. Feel that the experience and food is diminished by the level of service. The wait staff is too young and unpolished to put this restaurant in the league of other spots on the street . Used to love this place... not this year !
Pazzo's always a good spot for any occasion. My friend from Maine had the salmon and she could not say enough enough about the quality of the fish and the sauce that accompanied it. A wonderful combination. My measl was equally good and the evening was very enjoyable.
Not a good place for a party of two to have dinner. We were placed against the wall very very close to a party of four. It was like we were dining with them. As it looked around the room, most of the tables for two were in unfortunate places. I can only assume Pazzo wants the bigger groups and is not willing to sit two at tables that can accommodate four. I'll only go back if I'm with a larger group.
Pazzo! Is my favorite Naples restaurant. My only complaint is the new policy of not allowing people to reserve an outside table on the morning of a reservation. The old policy made outside tables available. The new policy means you may or may not get an outside table. Why was a policy changed that regular repeat customers enjoyed? Perhaps someone in management decided that keeping regular repeat customers happy was a dangerous policy.
We have been to Pazzo's many times since 2000. This was one of our worst experiences. The place was packed with people waiting for reservations, and there is no room to stand and wait. We waited for 30 minutes for our reservation. During this time we were bumped, spilled on, and crowded into spaces where the wait staff could not get through. Outside was filled tables out to the street. Food was cold when it it came and had to be sent back. Manager was not helpful, rather questioned if we were sure our food was cold.??? Never going back.
Manager andHostess were rude
My wife's birthday I called aged after making reservations and they AST us outside after saying they had an inside table We were eventually moved. Very busy
Would not reccomend during season wefrequent this restaurant and were treated as tourists tonight.
Pazzo has been a favorite of ours for several years. Food is always been good. A fun place to visit but on our recent visit with friends who had never been there, the evening was ruined by a server who was trying to rush us. We had a 7 pm reservation and were told when we were not ready to order after just having received our cocktails that there were many other people waiting their turn to dine. Really? I believe that we should be allowed to enjoy our cocktails without being pressured to order within 5 minutes of being seated. When a member of our party asked to see the Wine List, the server replied, "it's right there in front of you in the menu!" Nice! We did place an order and the food that night was not great just good but I believe that no matter what came out of the kitchen our evening had already been ruined by our server. Not sure we will be back for a while if ever.
