Pazzo! Italian Cafe Ratings and Reviews
First trip to Pazzo. Party of five for Easter dinner. Could not have been more pleased. Waiter was excellent from beginning to end. I regret I did not remember his name. Drinks were generous and excellent. Started with salads. the heirloom tomato salad was terrific. Main courses varied. The rib eye pork chop was the best I've ever had. Done just right, tasty and tender with an amazing sauce. The others had various veal dishes that were all excellent. We'll be returning.
We were seated in a timely fashion but our chair seats were stained & dirty.
Waited a while for our waiter & that didn't change all evening.
Poor service The server never came to table to ask if we needed water or another drink. Had to hunt down someone for salt for our granddaughter
The short rib meat balls were burned & had no hint of short ribs
Air flow in restaurant poor
We arrived to order early specials. They would not provide them because early specials must be ordered by phone and cannot threw open table. Waitress showed me this in open table fine print that nobody reads. I no longer trust open table unless I make sure I read everything
We have been coming here for the last 10+ years. For the first time, we met friends who came up from Capri. I was really embarrassed at the poor service. Luckily the food somewhat redeemed the experience. I was very disappointed. It was an expensive meal for not being 100% pleased. Sadly, I will try another 5th Ave option the next time we are in town.
We had a good dinner at Pazzo. I had the mussels for a first course and the seared tuna appetizer and a side of spinach for a main course. My sister-in-law also had two appetizers. My husband had an appetizer and a main course and ended up taking most of the main course home. The portions are quite large. I hadn't been there in quite a while and I was very surprised at how many of the main courses were more than $40 each.
Our favorite restaurant in Naples. They offer home made pasta dishes and a vegetable lasagna that was loaded with many delicious vegetables in between home made pasta sheets. If you like Italian this is the place. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive to your needs.
As Pazoo had quite a high rating we thought we would spend our last night of our 'season' in Naples at a really nice restaurant. Sadly, our experience was not as good as we were expecting. Had reservations for over a week and was seated at a 'high table' right next to the Avenue. Several tables with (4) seats remained open for at least 45 minutes after we requested a different table. SO, what is the problem?? THE TABLE was approx. 20" in diameter which meant with a glass of wine, glass of water, and the entree' on it we could barely move for fear of knocking something off the table!! The glasses were exactly 1" from the edge as there was no room to move them! The food was ok...nothing exceptional at all. Steven, our server, was friendly and helpful. A 'wanna be' upscale restaurant that just does not quite make it. Maybe if we were seated elsewhere outside, or inside, my review would have been more favorable. With the many excellent restaurants in the are we will not be returning to Pazoos!
My husband and I were on vacation. Made reservations through open table. Had one of the best meals. Had a tortellini pasta sausage dish. Delicious!! Excellent wine list. Would highly recommend, plus received bonus points. Will definitely return when in area
Our waitress was very rude.. it was obvious she was not happy that we asked for 2 checks.. said she didn't think she could do it.. funny.. we always have separate checks . Gave me several dirty looks when asked questions about the menu like she didn't have time for us at all! Definitely will request NOT to have her ever again.
The restaurant was very busy and our waitress was a bit overwhelmed. They need to hire more staff to accommodate the demand. My husband's beer arrived with not one but two bugs in it. The waitress was very apologetic and addressed the issue right away, however, how did that even happen! They need to hire more staff to better handle the clientele.
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.....
