Pazzo Ristorante Ratings and Reviews
Just what we needed! Our waiter was fantastic - as was all of the staff we encountered. Seated us at a window table and checked in regularly. He even suggested an option for dinner that was perfect and not on the menu. Very accommodating and offered with a smile. The food and wine were excellent. We will be back!
Had a business meeting and wanted someplace quiet, efficient and yet tasty. This fit the bill perfectly. The deconstructed Tuna Nicoise Salad was divine, companion ordered the Tomato Soup and it smelled divine. Our server was super nice, attentive but not too and very adept at not interrupting when I was giving my spiel : )
This restaurant is in a great location in downtown Portland. There is nothing to adversely effect our rating, but everything was just OK. The food was good but lacked uniqueness. The restaurant was noisy, and the prices on the high side for what we got. I do not mind spending $100+ for a meal, but at the same time I look for creativity from the chef. Quattro Frommagie Ravioli always sounds romantic, but this was what you could get in almost any pasta house, and possibly less for a $24.00 price a la carte. The Halibut was well prepared with a nice a vegetable Rattatouli accompaniment, but the tomato overpowered the delicate Halibut flavor.
Overall we commented as we left, that we knew of many restaurants that would much better meet our needs and desires.
Love this restaurant. We stayed at the hotel above (Vintage) and found all the wait people, both in the hotel and in the restaurant incredibly helpful, warm, lovely.
Food delicious....tried lots of various dishes on the menu....most outstanding. The Roast chicken was the best I've tasted anywhere....and the tuna main dish was also incredibly inventive and delicious.
Would highly recommend it!
And I'm a New Yorker and used to excellent food.
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.
