    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/26/2014
    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.

    We had a group of five for dinner. Everyone enjoyed the salads. The iceberg wedge was outstanding. Entries were very good and almost everyone took home leftovers. The dessert was just ok. The problem was the noise level. It was crazy loud, then a band started to play and it was almost impossible to hear each other. If we return, we would request a table outside. Or at the very least, go on a night when there isn't a band.

    Good food and excellent service except for the hovering to clear us out as we slowly finished our meal...."are you finished yet, are you done, can I clear your plate" To which we repeatedly responded "No." There were at least 8 empty tables in the restaurant so it wasn't that the table was needed - perhaps it was just an enthusiastic helper.

    Lively crowd on Mondays due to 1/2 price pizza and pasta dishes. Many families enjoying a meal which is great to see. My husband ordered the double cut pork chop with maple syrup mashed sweet potato that was delicious, and our yellow and red fresh beet salad appetizer was great. My dinner selection was somewhat disappointing. I ordered the jumbo shrimp with asparagus risotto. The shrimp cooked down to extra large and lacked taste and the risotto was cooked alittle to long, it was not creamy, more pasty. Unfortunately the asparagus did not taste cooked. I think it may have been added after the risotto was cooked. We have dined here several times and always enjoyed dinner here. The pizza and pasta dishes looked wonderful.

Service was good, but waiter not able to explain the various cheeses on the antipasto platter. Though she was attentive. Dessert (Pizzelle Tower) featuring Tahitian gelato was scrumptious!

    Pazzo is a chic spot for a pleasant lunch. The menu had many choices, the atmosphere was upscale, quiet, and relaxing. My party of three was seated at a table on the patio. The food was very good, but the wait was long. The servers were very nice but we had to ask for water refills and were disappointed when ordering coffee that the server did not suggest dessert. She was pleasant, but seemed reserved and did not go out of her way to please us. The mussel appetizer was delicious but a tad heavy on the fresh garlic. We had to ask for bread, which was odd since this dish is typically served with bread to sop up the broth. The caesar salad was delicious...the pizza bianca was ok. Espresso and cappucinos were perfect.

    Four of us dined before a theater show in Red Bank. The wait staff and kitchen were good at moving things along to be sure we finished in plenty of time for the show, without making us feel rushed. Our server graciously made note of a couple food allergy issues and offered suggestions to work around those. We all enjoyed our dinners, from the presentation to the last delicious bites. We would definitely go back again.
