    The restaurant was a little louder than I would like but it didn't take anything away from our experience. The service was exceptionally good. The steak was perfectly cooked. I can't say as much for the salmon.

    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.

    Pazzo's isn't along the strip with the rest of the restaurants in Red Bank, but they made themselves a nice place. They're food has always been great. The outdoors is covered so you can sit out there well into November. There are always a lot of patrons. I look forward to going back.

    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.

    Early dinner for 2 adults mid week.2nd time dinning at Pazzo.Parking doesn't get any better(no fee, covered garage next door).Had made quick reserv 40 min. prior to arrival with Opentable.Not needed.was not busy. Not impressed by outdoor seating area.Wine list fair to good with specials offered.Pazzo clean, friendly, and a accommodating.Service like the food good, met the basic standards, but I don't find Pazzo special nor memorable. I would go back but not really excited to. Overall experience was good. Price point on most items are fair, some too high.For adults who enjoy dining without the younger ones (under 8) being part of the experience use caution.I left feeling some families find Pazzo to be their local pizza joint.

    I've eaten lunch at the bar a few times, generally pizza or salad. This was my first time there for dinner. My wife and I went with another couple and tried a variety of dishes, all crowd pleasers. The only comments I'd share in terms of "developmental opportunities" are minimal. My wife had the blackened tuna and said it was a little heavy on the spice. One of my friends had the halibut and, while it was delicious, was slightly overcooked. My friend's wife and I both had the veal piccata and it was off the charts delicious. The desserts were above average, and I give extra points for the sorbet, my favorite after dinner indulgence. Bravo!

    Pazzo's is always excellent. The only issue this time was the delay between appetizers and the main course, about 35-40 minutes. I was fine with it because it gave me more time with my family, but my wife got a little restless after about 20 - 25 minutes. The waiter was great and apologized for the delay, but when the wife isn't 100% happy, it takes a little bit away from the experience. We've been to Pazzo's a couple dozen times and this was the first issue we ever had - that's why we keep going back. Even with this one issue, we will continue to frequent Pazzo's.

    We've been to Pazzo several times. The food, as always, was great. The salmon entree is spectacular, the best salmon dish I have ever had. The Pizelle tower desert is something to save room for in the end. This night our waiter was slightly off. Not as friendly and attentive as previous evenings here, thus the lower star rating on service. Past outings our waitresses have been great.

    Food was delicious and service was excellent. Server was very up on wine list as well. Disappointed with where we were seated. Restaurant fairly empty when we arrived but we were seated in the last table in a side area of restaurant. Should have asked for a different table. They should save bad tables for walk-ins. Very disappointed.
