I enjoyed my soup and entre very much. My wife ordered the Branzino but it was boney and tasted too fishy and she loves fish, she sent it back. Our waitress seemed aloof, she would pass through the dining room and never make eye contact. I had to have a buss boy get her so she could take away the fish. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to be uncommon, particularly in higher end restaurants. We are not drinkers or big on appetizers so if we can't pad the bill I guess we deserve minimal service.

Monday is there busy weekday night, because of the pizza and pasta special, but they really need more help. Took way too long to get our drink order, and since it was obviously very busy it makes sense to get the drinks quickly. Food was good, and large servings. 3 of 4 of us took home sizable left overs.

I went to Pazzo with my husband a couple of weeks ago and we had a really nice meal. The beat salad was great. I loved my halibut - it tasted amazing - the amount of fish on the plate could have been notched up a bit though. My husband had veal Milanese which he said was perfectly prepared and it was a very generous portion. We also shared a pasta dish - it had a creamy mushroom sauce. It was delicious but the sauce was very thick - I think it may have sat a bit between being cooked and being picked up by the waiter. The restaurant was very busy so we definitely have a pass on that one! I had reservations here two nights ago but couldn’t make it due to an emergency. My friends were able to go and they loved everything they ordered.

Dinner was bit disappointing. We ordered calamari appetizer which was barely warm and tasted terrible. My friend and I ordered chicken piccata which was served w/ spinach and potato croquette. I would skip the spinach on that one! Pretty nasty. The one dish that was VERY good was pasta Bolognese. Don’t think I’ll be going back. Sorry Pazzo.

All the dinners did not come out at the same time. Some had to wait.
I’ve had better food there in the past.

We were seated right away. There was a little lull between sitting and ordering. But once we ordered, timing of appetizers, drinks and entrees were spot on.

We didn't like the unsafe environment. There was NO social distancing. The food was better in previous visits too. We were given a table next to a noisy party, so we asked to move, and we were accommodated. Thank you.
We are unlikely to return until after the pandemic is over. A pity, as we do enjoy Pazzos.

Honestly? Pazzo never disappoints. It was spur of the moment midday lunch. The restaurant itself was pretty empty but the staff was attentive and the food, outstanding as always. I had the Bronzino a.k.a. Mediterranean sea bass and it was simple but exquisitely prepared. We will be back, as always

I liked the food. I liked the service. I also like to have dinner conversation, which is strained in the noise. Ironically, the patio area had a large party and was even louder. Not going back soon....still looking for somewhere I can talk while enjoying the food.

We were 3 ladies enjoying a long over due get together. We all the caprese di bufala and baked clams for appetizer. The pan seared blackened tuna was delicious and my dining partners really enjoyed their pasta dishes - Nonna's Rigatoni & spaghettini w/truffle cream sauce. 1/2 price Wine night on Wednesday is great!

Never going back after being customers for many years - I was told "no substitutions due to a staffing shortage" when I asked for a different type of lettuce in my salad. The restaurant was empty and there was plenty of staff.

Sadly Pazzo has gone downhill since covid. They did not seem to be understaffed and yet service was very slow and our food took an hour to come out. Our waiter was hanging out at the waitstand with the other waitstaff and we had to keep flagging him down to get water and drinks. Also, it would not hurt the hostesses to smile and be polite to people both on their way in and out. Their attitude was such an eyeroll. I think we are done with this place after many years.

We were received by the front staff. The restaurant was busy. They sat us at a high top near the bar. Good view. We were given menus then we were ignored for the next 15 minutes. After trying unsuccessfully to get service, we left. (Without even ordering water. ) As longtime locals, crossing them off of our list for good.

Service, while attentive was slow. Took over 15 minutes to get drinks delivered from the bar. Kichen was working very hard(visible from our table) but took a long time for both appetizers and main course to come out. Food was very good. I'm sure like all restaurants, they are understaffed and have trouble hiring. Hope it gets better on our next visit.

8:00 reservation. We weren’t seated until 8:45.

Apps were delicious and service was excellent.

Main dishes were not good. Branzino was fishy and bolognese was all meat and very little pasta.

Pazzo is one of our favorite restaurants, disappointing
