Great first visit!
We chose this restaurant because it was close to the theatre and we were attending a matinee performance. And, we met friends who live nearby and have dined there in the past. We were extremely pleased with the menu options and wine & cocktail choices. The items we chose were delicious and service was wonderful. The manager went out of his way to make us feel comfortable.

Red Bank Find
Away from the main streets of Red Bank with easy parking is this great restaurant. Friendly bar tenders while waiting for table. Dinner was exceptional. Would highly recommend the Halibut on the menu. Shared an amazing dessert recommended by the manager, with my 3 guests. Gelato with pizzelle cookies. Very busy since it was a Saturday night in the summer so I would try to have a reservation. Dinner took a little while to get to us but we were comped the 2 glasses of wine that were ordered with dinner. Can't wait to go back.

Convenient and Good Experience
We made a 6:00 reservation for pre-theatre dinner. The hostess & our waiter confirmed we were going to an 8:00 show at Two River Theatre. We had one glass of wine, which came promptly, before ordering. Hubby and I had appetizers, crab cakes for him and the yummy Capra Formagi salad, for me. Hubby enjoyed the crab cakes; he ate one and doggie bagged the other. My entree was the branzino, on the menu. Good. Hubby had a special, Dover Sole. Very good. We didn't have dessert or coffee & had so much time to kill, we walked around RB for quite a while, before the show. I would have appreciated a little more time, between courses. The ambiance is lovely; the staff, very good; the food good to very good, but, pricey. We'll go back.

Wonderful anniversary dinner!!
My husband and I enjoyed a fantastic anniversary dinner in Red Bank's Pazzo restaurant last weekend. From the delicious bellinis, to the amazing scallop appetizer to the branzini entree...the meal was superb! My husband loved his limoncello chicken wings appetizer and his chicken parmigiana meal. We love visiting Red Bank for Valentine's weekend and our anniversary weekend in July, as well as any other chance we get to excape to our favorite town. I think we found our new dinner spot! We'll be sure to spread the word!!
Thank you Pazzo!

A Restaurant in Red Bank
We,a group of 5, celebrated a birthday on this occasion,never having been there before we did not know what to expect .We all shared a few appetizers amongst us.We had superb drinks & shared a bottle of wine with dinner.The food was cooked to perfection & came out plated with a nice presentation.Having the choice to sit outside or inside ,we choose outside which made this experience even better.I suggest a recommendation to trying this establishment for any occasion. Great food & pleasantly pleased. Thumbs up !

Cacio e pepe
I was here a few months ago and ha a craving for cacio e pepe (spaghetti, black pepper, and grated reggiano). I asked if they could make it for me, an they did, tho it was not quite right. The chef came out an asked my opinion, which I gave him, and also thanked him for trying.
I went back on Tuesday, and the chef remembered me (he was standing in front of the kitchen expediting). He came over and told me he has been experimenting with cacio e pepe and wanted me to try his latest version ON THE HOUSE! How great is that!?
Anyway, it was AMAZING! I'm talking Mario Batali/Lupa amazing. He said to watch for it as a special add to the menu.
What great hospitality. Go Pazzo!

Delicious as always
The Limoncello Wings were very good! First time i had them and I thoroughly enjoyed them. The Iceberg, Bacon, Blue Cheese salad was also well executed. Our waiter was very friendly and the staff overall very pleasant.

Great from all aspects!
This is our second time and we were as happy this time around as we were the night we discovered Pazzo back in March. It's almost 30 miles from our home, so we can't go all the time, but would if we lived closer! And Wednesdays are especially great.......ALL wine is 50% off!!

Great food and service
Food was great - waiter was knowlegeable and attentive, and didn't hurt that he looked like Superman! The owner and waiter acknowledged my request for my friend's birthday, and bought us a great dessert. We had a great time. I love this place.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't beat half off pizza and pasta every Monday. Other specials throughout the week.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pazzo is wonderful
went to Pazzo for an early dinner before a show at count basie theater. it is a little off the beaten path from the center of town. i have to say it was a wonderful find! The service was outstanding! our server, i believe his name was Justin, was very cordial and tended to our every need. The owner came by our table a few times to make sure everything was alright as well. The food, the wine and the atmosphere was great. This was an early birthday gift from my husband and i enjoyed it thoroughly. Thank you to Pazzo's for a wonderful evening out. We will definitely return and spread the word to others.

A red bank gem
Great dining experience, food and service were excellent.

PAZZO CRAZY GOOD
The food was amazing. I had the Halibut and loved it. The service was great, and everything (appetizer, entree, dessert and wine) was delicious. A+

Pazzo Red Bank
Although the food was noteworthy, Thursday night at Pazzo was not a great night to get together with friends for conversation. The bar was active and the great entertainment made it difficult to engage in conversation with friends. I still recommend Pazzo but call ahead to find out about entertainment.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The waiter was great. The food was great. A little under staffed. Drinks took long. Sangria was great when it came. Dessert fabulous.
8/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The fig pizza was amazing as was the prociuto one. Food is pricey (didnt try) and the clams/chicken wing apps were OK- nothing special.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
fantastic pizza selections
My family and I have only visited Pazzo on Mondays for the 1/2 pizza/pasta offer. We have tried 4 pizzas so far and each was great. We have tried 5 different pasta dishes and they were yummy too. One point I would like to make is that past a is very inexpensive and we think you should add more to the past dishes.

1/2 price wine on wednesday !!
Food was great and we enjoyed 1/2 price wine on Wednesday!!

Still love this place, but.....
Had dinner last night. Several months ago, we ate here and had some issues. Food was great, but service awful. Because they got us out late for the theater, the owner gave us a certificate to come back. Food still really good, service not so. Requested in advance table inside, but they sat us outside next to a huge party that had parents at one table, kids at another. So loud we could not even hear the waitress. They moved us inside and were really nice about it. Guy in charge is a really good host, thank you. Unfortunately once inside, we got the same waiter as a few months ago, Matthew. Service was not any better, good thing we were not in a hurry. He also did not get the order right. Next time we know who not to have wait on us.

Great place, but we unexpectedly
Great place, but we unexpectedly were among lots of families with young children, even with an 8 pm reservation. A family with a two year old came in at 9 pm, so we didn't have the adult evening we had hoped for.

Delicious and fun
I went to Pazzo with my BFF. We had a great time. The staff and owner are fun and very attentive. The food is to die for. It has upscale pricing so not an everyday experience but a great dinner and wonderful time all around.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good. Portions were a good size. Service was a little off. Wait staff seemed a little harried and it wasn't that busy. Over all, a good place for a nice dinner. Will try eating outside next time.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
A fun place
Two out of four were pleased with their meal
The fish was so so. I had the branzini and it had
A fish smell and tasted bland. The salmon also
Lacked flavor and was a bit over done. I did not
Taste the vodka in my drink. Loved our server
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Pazzo was overall a wonderful experience, aside from the mussels, which were a bit small and tasteless. All the other food we had was very good. What made our experience stand out most was our waitress, Brianna. She was only in her early 20's, but had the personality and maturity to make one of the best waitresses we've ever had, and we've traveled all over the world and eaten at some amazing places. We'll go back, and we'll be asked to be seated in Brianna's section. She made a nice dining experience into an amazing dining experience!! GO GO GO!!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
To start, just have a slight critique. it can be just a little noisy based on the environment, BUT do not let that sway you. I was 100% pleased with everything! Server was knowledgeable & helpful, food was delicious! Gotta try it.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved, loved the food, service, bar, wine and where we sat. It was a great evening!!
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pazzo is perfect!!!
Great food in a vibrant environment !!! I have been here many times and have always enjoyed myself. Would not hesitate to recommend Pazzo to friends or business associates. A must get regardless of calories is the pizzelle tower. Hmmmmm good!!!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were not familiar with the Red Bank area being from extreme South Jersey but the dinner was offered with a concert package. We felt it was likely going to be an upgraded Pizza Hut but we were absolutely thrilled by the total experience. The service was excellent, the ambience was perfect but the outstanding part was the food. It was to the point of being decadent it was so good. It was not a meal, it was not a dinner, it was a wonderful and memorable experience.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my 2nd time dining at Pazzo -- the first time was w/ a friend, this time was with my family for my mom's birthday. Our reservation was for a Friday night at 6pm. There were 5 adults and my niece who is 2-years-old. We had to wait a few minutes for our table. Our server was new and training that night, but she did a great job. She even brought over some pizza dough for my niece to play with when she started getting antsy at the table. Everyone enjoyed their meal and took home leftovers. The only negative comment I would make is that they sat us right in the middle of the dining room where it was VERY noisy and difficult for us to hear each other talk (and for my dad to hear the waitress when she was listing the specials).
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food, service & attention to detail second to none. All food was delish and the GM cane around asking about our meal. We got a special that was slightly over cooked yet still great, GM bought us a round I drinks for the inconvenience that wasn't even. Can't wait to return!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went here w/ a group of 6. All of the food came out timely and was all great. The specials were outstanding.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 2nd visit to Pazzo. Food and service were very good. Our waiter was well versed in the menu and specials of the evening. The one disappointment was that the shrimp oreganata that was listed on the online menu was not available on the restaurant menu.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Have been here many times
Have been here many times . There is a vibrant energy when you walk in the door . The food has always been good but I think the service is what makes it stand out. Servers are knowledgable and helpful. Will definitely go back.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great atmosphere and great food. The bar is fun, great wines and very happy place to go!!! The people who work here are professional and the food is perfect!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome dining experience!
Not your usual dining fare.Many different dishes prepared exquisitely. Lots of personal attention from host and wait staff. They wanted to make sure everything was perfect. Food was delicious. Portions large. An added bonus to this restaurant....free parking in their garage with transportation to the theater. Who can ask for more!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food is great. Luv the margarita pizza and specialty drink list is fun and unusual. The noise level is a bit too loud at times it's hard to have a conversation. But still one of my favorite places.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place was top notch all the way,I would absolutley make it a point to try it.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was excellent and the service was very pleasant. Although meals are on the pricier side, you certainly get what you pay for (best tiramasu we've ever had). I've dined here twice. The first night, we sat in the dining room and enjoyed the live music playing in the bar area. The second night we were seated in the enclosed patio, and it was very nice! Pretty and a bit more intimate. We can't wait to go back!!
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dining experience
Ate here for the first time
Everything we ordered was excellent
Service was great
Was not rushed at all even on Saturday night
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
first time dinner
noise level way to high for my comfort, food was good, waiter was attentive although he must have been new to the job, I say this because I gave him my coat check, he brought coats however he handed mine to me while I was still seated and signing charge card invoice.. another thing the table assistants could use some additional training as the guy who was clearing our table took my partners plates I was still eating and grabbed the plate I had my bread in. Minor missteps overall we enjoyed ourselves.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had some GREAT specials at Pazzo. The first was a spicy pizza made with hot pepper provalone and hot capicola. It had a nice kick to it and the meat crisped up perfectly in the brick oven. I'd love to see this as a permanent menu item! The other item I ordered was a stuffed veal chop. On the bone, butterflied, stuffed with fresh mozz and prosciutto, closed up and served with a nice breadcrumb crust on the outside. Topped with a little taste of tomato concasse. Broccolini was the planned side, but I subbed in mashed potatoes with no problem. I thought it was FANTASTIC, and I'm not even a veal lover. This place has just gotten better with time.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Due to traffic we were 30
Due to traffic we were 30 minutes late for our reservation. But no problem at the restaurant. The owner met us at the door and assured us our table was still there and he would speak to the staff to ensure we were served quickly so we would be on time for an after dinner show at the local theatre. Food was very good and staff very accommodating. We would definitely return.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
6 of us went for dinner. First time for all. Hostess...bartender....waiter (Ryan) All smiles and excellent service. The Owner came over twice. The food was piping hot when it arrived and delicious! Will definitely be back again.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Pricey but woth it.
The food at Pazzo was very good, and the service attentive. The recommended bolognese sauce was excellent, although the pasta was slightly overdone. The veal dish was also excellent. Creative starters added to the experience. We dined early so there was no noise problem, but as the dining room filled, it tended toward noisy. One of the owners visited our table twice. We'll visit again.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food & Service Were Great!
Enjoyed a Wednesday ladies night out @ Pazzo. 1/2 price on all wines...service was great. Pizza was delicious. Enjoyed the burrata mozzarella. The pizzelle dessert was yummy. Plentiful portions. Overall, pleasant evening and worth recommending.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent food and service!
Excellent food and service! Everybody in our party of 6 loved their meals! Service was excellent as well..
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great dinner spot for a couple
Great dinner spot for a couple or a group of friends. Food was terrific and owner walked around to check on tables and bar all night long, which was impressive. One of best Fried Calamari I've ever had. Will definitely be back to sit outside in the summer.
