Always enjoy Pazzo's, especially their early dining specials. This visit we ordered our favs, Pappardelle with bolognese and Shrimp Scampi, and the dishes were made a bit different than we've had in the past. The beef in the pappardelle was chunked more than shredded throughout, and the pasta with the shrimp was a larger flat noodle which was a bit difficult to eat. All was very tasty but would have preferred the dishes prepared as they had been in the past. Not sure if they have a new chef or just trying to change things up a bit.

Excellent food. Special coupon made our group of 4 even better. All went well until we got to the end. Our waiter was so busy, it took 25 minutes to get our bill. Then another 15 minutes to pay. It was not a good finish to a wonderful meal. We were all upset by the time we left.

We have lived here for over 20 years and have been to Pazzo on other occasions........this one was TOTALLY RUINED BY THE RUDENESS OF ONE PERSON!!! The "host"/maybe manager..........Absolutely not suited to his position and made us verrry sure that we would never return to this restaurant....and will make very sure that we give our opinion and non recommendation to everyone we know!!!!
What a shame that RUDE, STUPID, OBNOXIOUS people are allowed to deal with customers in these places at all...it certaily took PAZZO down in CLASS to us!!

We take family and friends to Cafe Pazzo whenever they are visiting Naples. This has become one of our favorite Italian restaurants on 5th Avenue. The ambiance is warm and inviting. Service was exemplary as always. Food was outstanding in taste and presentation. We will be back again soon!

Had not been back for 5 years and now I remember why. Had a problem with them then they would not let accomodate my lemon allergy with the dressing. I do not tolerate too much cream of butter so i ended up having a salad instead 5 years ago. This time I gave them another chance since they may just had a bad day but they wanted to charge us $3.50 for substituting spinach for parmasean rice. Grouper main course was SWEET, hate sweet fish . Grouper is LOCAL so it should be fresh but it was NOT. Could not finish the main course.Salad had too much dressing! We live in Napes and dine out frequently. Location close to our office. Will not return!

Two couples and we all enjoyed our food. One of the wives thought the marinara for her chicken parm need more seasoning. before dinner, we met at the bar for two rounds of drinks Saturday; 1/2 price drinks and bar food all night. At first the bartender told us that that was good only until 7PM. After our first round he informed us that he was mistaken. Would love to see an old school pounded flat and breaded veal parm on the menu.

Ever since we've moved to Naples we have been coming to Pazzo for great Italian dining. It has become our favorite 5th Avenue restaurant and is our go to when we have friends or family in town. We especially like it in the summer for the great early dining deals and the coupons for later dining. We have never been disappointed with the food or service. It's always a delight.

Our favorite restaurant ever since we moved to Naples 20 years ago. Nice early bird specials, good Italian sauce, low key atmosphere, like eating in a trendy Manhattan restaurant, love Sinatra and others background music and wife especially loves the single rose on the table.

We are their loyalty card members for years and have eaten there on several occasions. This was a disappointment. First there was a mistake on our bill at the bar, that was quickly taken care of but should not have happened. Then for dinner we had a coupon for $10 off an entree and was told by the server that we needed 2 for 2 people. OK, it wasn't clear but sure wouldn't spoil our evening. My wife ordered the Pollo Vodka Penne and it was wonderful; I ordered a special Grouper Al Forno and I should have sent it back. Al Forno means baked in a wood oven but the chef interpreted it as smothered in sugar. All taste was lost and it could have easily been a desert. If it was topped with lump crab meat it was well hidden. We had money of our card and gave this to our server along with a credit card, she returned with the charge on my credit card only. I asked her to charge what we had on the loyalty card and she said it was empty. i pointed out that there was at least $40 on it and use it. She finally did - what a hassle. If there had been a manager present i would have told him about all of the problems but there wasn't. Something has changed here and not for the better - too bad

Incredibly delicious food, fantastic service and excellent ambiance. I went for my birthday and it definitely did NOT disappoint. As a matter of fact, I went 2 years ago for the same event and it exceeded my last amazing experience. To start, the mussels in pomodoro sauce was one of the BEST appetizers I've ever had. Couple that with their white bean soup with chopped clams...OMG is all I can say. We followed with their version of caesar salad and it was the best I ever had...especially with the addition of other healthy veggies, made this a surprising take on the original. Then, our main courses: veal del prete and grouper piccata. The fish was ethereal, tender, perfectly cooked. The veal, robust, intense and deep in flavor. WOW. We chose a Belle Glos Las Alturas Pinot Noir and it was a perfect pairing throughout the meal. Needless to say, in spite of how full we were, I had to have their tiramisu...my favorite dessert. And, what a way to end the meal. It was divine, subtle and the most memorable of all the tiramisus i've had. If you haven't guessed by now, I highly recommend this gem...make a reservation immediately and make your way there. Let them take care of you and you will leave walking in air...even though your belly be full.
