    Came for dinner after seeing a play at the nearby theater. We were seated immediately but service overall was slow. The food, on the other hand, was impeccable! 5 stars on every dish, down to dessert and cappuccino. Highly recommend the limoncello wings and mussels for appetizer.

  • Reminded Why We Don't Eat Out on Friday Nights

    Usually, we don't go out on Friday nights. We'll probably stick to that. We came to Pazzo on a Friday night. It's a good thing we had a reservation. Or else we would have to wait. The parking deck was full like a normal workday. While we were waiting for our food, I overheard our waitress telling the table next to us the specials. One special appetizer in particular sounded good, we would have ordered it if she had only told US the specials! My husband ordered another drink for his meal. It arrived in time for dessert. The food was good. We'll give Pazzo another try, on a weeknight.

    The food was excellent, but the service was poor. The plates for the appetizers were still sitting in front of us when the entrée was delivered. I don't like to have my table bused while my dinner plate is sitting in front of me. The waitress never came back after the appetizer or when the entrée was delivered to see if anything else was needed. Not attentive to the drinks at the table. We waited a long time for second glass of wine while waiting for the food. I would try it again for lunch, but not for dinner again.

    My only critique is that the person I was dining with had a dish where the shrimp was overcooked. I had the special Mahi Mahi dish and it was delicious and I was pleased. I thought their pricing was on the higher end and most specials were priced at over $30 and the portions were not big, but I did feel satisfied. The servers were polite and attentive and overall did a great job. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys a more contemporary menu and it is suitable for everyone.

    Had reservations made 3 days ahead and was seated outside in the plastic extension of the dinning area in a rainy evening. The food was ok at best, the appetizer was outstanding, dinner with a bottle of wine was over $200.00. Service and the staff were very nice and good.

    Took my girlfriend here a few days ago on her birthday and we both liked Pazzo. We split the meatball and ricotta appetizer and I had the monkfish francese over risotto and she had shrimp diavlo. Both very good, risotto was done perfect which you don't see that often. Service is good and prices are right where they should be. I'd rate it as one of the better Italian options in Red Bank which has a number of very good places for Italian. We will definitely be back.

    generous portions, we each had a different dish and all five of us enjoyed our food. Shared the fig pizza as an appetizer--very good-- we went on a monday night and the pasta and pizza dishes were 1/2 price! The bar as packed and the restaurant was busy and it was very noisy. We had the wait staff take down the leaves of the table so we could sit closer to hear each other. The maitre de passed by several times to ask how everything was so I would say they are attentive and friendly.

    They couldn't take a reservation until 8:45 and the waitress really seemed to be ready to go home when we were seated. The pork chop ordered medium rare was very overcooked. They were out of the sweet potatoes and substituted mashed potatoes which would have been okay if they didn't seem to be made out of an instant mix. And the broccolini, one of my favorite veggies, was tasteless. Will not be visiting again. not sure why they were so busy...

    Waitress was swamped and instead of the manager helping he let her sink which made our experience dismal. Got plastic in my salad - no remake no comp no apology - waitress said "must be from the arugula bag" then walked away. Got dinners waited for cheese on my pasta for 15 minutes once I got the cheese my dinner was luke warm. Very disappointed and upset for wasting money on this place.

    A major plus is the location: the restaurant is steps away from downtown Red Bank where there are a plethora of local eateries and boutique shops. Next door is the parking garage which is free after certain hours on weekends, and either way, I believe Pazzo comps it for you. On top of that, the staff is very friendly at Pazzo and the food there is delish! No complaints. Thanks for being fabuloso, Pazzo! Ciao for now :)

    We really enjoyed Pazzo, everything was incredible, the iceberg wedge with blue cheese and bacon was to die for! I could have stopped right there, I was full! My sister is gluten-free and there were plenty of options for her, so she was thrilled. The only thing we thought was crazy for the prices for drinks at the bar! Wow, will not do that again.

    Dined on sept 27 Saturday nite around 8pm. Restaurant was crowded but we had res and were seated right away. Food was excellent Albright prices a little high. Had grilled octopus appitizer (18) which was high but delicious and both had fish, one halibut and one Bronzino which both were outstanding. No dessert, noise level high but I would definitely return for another meal. Everything looked great including pizza. Service was very good as well.

    We have been here off and on during the last 4 years. It has definitely improved in terms of food. The menu always has a wide variety of fish, meats, pizzas, and pastas. The kids menu is good for the little ones and they will make dishes to order, if asked. I would recommend this restaurant for a good meal that presents a nice variety of options for everyone. Owners also seem to be involved in the business and service oriented.

    This restaurant is the perfect Red Bank restaurant: unless you are at least middle-aged, conservative and white, they are not gonna be too thrilled to have you there. The food is just great though. So if you have two hours for dinner, it's still a great choice. 3 min walk from Count Basie Theatre.
