Pazzo Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
The food, ambiance, and service here is reliably great. My only quibble: please give the A/C a break! It felt like it had to be maybe 66 degrees in there -- way too cold when people are coming off the street in summer clothes. If you're eating here during the summer, bring a sweater.
I've had a few business lunches here and always appreciate the gracious service, always feeling like there is plenty of time for me and my party to visit and enjoy our savory meals. I admit that I'm hooked on the albacore tuna salad but just tried the (special) seafood chowder that included halibut and it's great too!
I love the variety on the menu.
I would dine here more often if I didn't live outside of downtown Portland.
We visited Portland and found this place in yelp. We are glad we tried here! Very good service, nice food & desert. We so loved Caesar salad!! So far the best Caesar we've ever had❣️We also had black truffle & grilled beet gnocchi and sweet pea & prosciutto pasta; both were great too! If we live in Portland we would keep going back. Highly recommended.
Pazzo is an old-school, white tablecloth, dinner house. It's quiet and refined but not fussy or overly sensitive. You can go casual if you choose. Service was excellent and well timed. The food was great. Not experimental or precious but well prepared and well presented.
Whether it's breakfast, lunch, or dinner, Pazzo never disappoints! The food is excellent and the service is gracious and excellent, as well. We enjoy all our meals at Pazzo! Definitely a cut above in all areas --- food, service, ambience. Highly recommend the experience.
I had not been to Portland in 10 years but wanted to visit Pazzo as I had remembered it as one of my favorites. It did not disappoint us including our local friends who had never been there. Great Butcher board, fresh tomato salad & Great creative Pasta entrees. Was told it will be remodeled next winter but just keep the great food choices. Excellent wine selection. $$$
Our server seated us, refilled our water and brought us our food, but otherwise was absent. The other wait staff picked up the slack. Pasta was cooked very well. The pizzas we're very good and we liked two of the three cheeses on our cheese board. With how much good food there is in Portland, I don't think we'll suffer thru bad service here again.
We had a wonderful Father's Day dinner at Pazzo. Our server, Leslie, was incredible. She knew everything about seemingly everything on the menu, was kind and gracious, and incredibly attentive. The food was outstanding and interesting, with a different take on traditional items.
I would definitely return to try additional dishes. Wines were a good value, and the cheesecake and Limoncello was outstanding!
Service was great. Really didn't like the risotto, though my wife did ask for it gluten free and vegan, so that may have been why. Mind you, the portion size of the risotto was pretty silly with a $27 price point.
The bar manager, Goose, came by and took care of us. Professional and appropriate. Well handled.
Been meaning to try this place for a long time. Prices are high, but service and quality with a management staff that stands behind what they do and offer are worth it.
Food was fabulous. I had the ravioli quarto formaggi. It melted in my mouth and the red sauce was very light and flavorful. My spouse had the pappardelle and it was very tasty as well. We started with the local seasonal greens and loved the dressing. We thought it had some olive flavor with some light spices similar to a mustard - very unusual and delicious. We come here ever year when we are in town and are always impressed with the wine suggestions and often buy an extra bottle to take home. Service was great as well.
Pazzo has been a favorite of ours for as long as it has been open but the last 2 times that we have been there have been totally disappointing experiences. The food was so unimpressive that we left most of it on our plates. Neither of our dishes had any flavor and even the parmesan cheese was bland. Our server was the only one on the floor that night, so service was slow. Last time that we will go there, sorry!
great food, great service staff, great experience. The butcher board and cheese board were excellent and had a few true surprises. The staff was genuinely friendly and in good humor, so it felt approachable and also a shared experience of happy people being served by happy and interested staff. Nothing is worse than stuffy dining with a hint of staff dissatisfaction with the workplace. Few places convey that sense of genuine pleasure and welcoming ambiance.
The service was horrible. Glass of water was served and i ordered a bottle of wine. After that i had to wait to order around 7-8 min. Mean time my server was talking with people in the kitchen. After that calamari was served calamari was good, but she gave us one tartar sauce and it was not enough for 3 people. I was looking for my server. She was not around my table for 15 min. We just ate calamari without tartar sauce and i pour my wine by myself. It was very frustrating and disappointing experience at the restaurant. The food was great but the server totally ruined it.
I had the Lamb Cheeks at the recommendation of the waitress. they were poorly prepared and tasteless. I was very disappointed in Pazzos. We used to go here quite often and hadn't been for couple years. the menu was sparce and the food mediocre. Out last visit. Sorry!
I hadn't been to this restaurant in a long time and it was a pleasant experience coming back. The food was wonderful. Great pasta and seafood. The menu was a bit limited but the staff said they were in transition. Service was great and I would definitely return again.
