We had a party of five. Three of us ordered the stuffed red snapper special. We all agreed that it was one of the best dishes we had ever had. Coco Pazzo continues to hit its stride serving excellent food.

I was amazed from the second I walked in the door. The place is beautiful. Food was outstanding! The wine suggestion was perfect. Service was terriffic. Wish I could eat here every night. I can't wait to go back. If I had known it Coco Pazzo was by Aura I would have tried it sooner.

I took my friend who was visiting
I took my friend who was visiting and has eaten all over the world. She was very impressed with Coco Pazzo and I was sooo pleased that I had chosen to take her there. After our yummy appetizer we each ordered entrees and our waiter brought us two large spoons for each which made it easy to share. Our wine was lovely... and we were too satisfied to have dessert. We were seated at a table in the back where we could talk side by side and we were there probably two hours chatting and enjoying the lovely ambiance. Our waiter, Jake, was just great. He was so friendly and helpful. We could have invited him to sit down with us. The other server was Jason. He was good too. My husband and I have been to both Aura and Coco and love both!

Excellent food, service and ambience. We were seated in a corner table which was quiet. We will return.

We took our 17 year old granddaughter out for a special occasion and everything was just superb!

Lovely evening in all dimensions
The food was very good and fairly priced. The service (our charming waiter was Ivan) was friendly and not rushed. We look forward to coming back soon.

Consistently Wonderful Service
We celebrated Mother's Day here after having dined a few times before. The owner, Michelle, and head waiter, Ivan, made our experience that much more comfortable. The food is always as consistently prepared as the attentive service.

Our new "place"
Our family just moved to the Sugar Land/Missouri City area and we had been lamenting that we had to leave our old favorite place to eat. You know, the local place that you know will always have wonderful food, great service and is right aroud the corner. We prefer to frequent non-chain restaurants and since Coco Pazzo is just a few minutes from our house and had great reviews, we had to try it out.
We were sure glad we did try it out! We will be back for sure. What a great value for the dollar. Excellent, personalized service and the food was high quality and well presented. Also with the business lunch, steak night and sunset menu you'll get a great deal.

Wonderful food as always.
Wonderful food as always. The roasted vegetable salad with tomato dressing was outstanding! Each vegetable featured from the cauliflower to the baby eggplant on top was flavorful and tasted fresh from the garden. The crab soufflé was light and airy and very tasty. Everything was great.

This is a true gem - a small but tasteful room with quiet Sinatra-type music playing quietly. Staff are friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The food is truly superb. The sunset menu is wonderful value, and there is an extensive main menu with many excellent and often "different" dishes, so much better than the ones you get in chain restaurants. Would highly recommend it.

Small but quaint. The food
Small but quaint. The food is wonderful and beautifully presented. The location is small but adds a personal feel to the dining experience. If you like Itallian food, you will really like this place. A cut above the usual and regular.

More than I ever expected!
My friend and I went for the Sunset special. It was a great value and the food was superb! We had the braised short rib ravioli, and stuffed flounder. Both were excellent. They also have a nice selection of moderately priced wines that have a nice aroma, flavor and finish well above the cost. The service was amazing. The server was very attentive and the head chef and owner both visited our table. This visit was more than I ever expected from a little spot in a mini mall. We will definitely be going back!

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
Four of us with different choices (two different chickens, one egg plant and one almond crusted flounder); and four excellent meals. We go to this restaruant always expecting a good experience; and, they never disappoint. We'll continue to go here.

Tuck away in a little neighborhood
Tuck away in a little neighborhood mall, I wan't aware of Coco Pazza's exisiting until I saw its ratings in Open Table. My wife and I went there to celebrate our anniversary and it was a terrific experience. The food was very good. The veal saltimbocca that I had was tender and very flavorful. The service was excellent. Our waiter was friendly but not too intimate and the manager came around personally to check with every table. The only downside is that space is limited. So seating can be congested but they manage quite nicely. Definitely plan on coming back again, maybe next time with some friends.

Coco Pazzo is awesome! Love the new chef Ara!! Looking forward to eating off his new menu!

Amazing food and great wine!
We eat at Coco Pazzo once a week. The service and food it too notch. Truly, a diamond in the rough!

I love this place !
In a very obscure location (a small shopping center in Missouri City), this excellent small restaurant produces beautiful dishes. They have the best frito misto in town and a lovely, small selection of daily specials. The wine list is moderate in price, the wait staff is friendly and attentive. Highly recommended.

there is no question that
there is no question that Chef Ara's presence has been of great benefit. the kitchen is beyond reproach -- every dish was lovely and beautifully seasoned.
it is imperative that children learn to behave in public places. if they cannot, well, then they cannot. leave them home, and enjoy the date night you and your husband so very much deserve. but don't inflict your kids on the rest of us, or get all upset when we complain. your boys were just amazingly and incessantly LOUD. and in such a small space, intolerable.
the maitre d'hotel should absolutely have squashed that right from the start, but i'm not sure if there is, or who is, the maitre d'hotel.

Very Good Food
Very good food and very consistent. If crowded, may wait for your food a bit to long, kitchen may get backed-up. Service is generally good, but is somewhat dependent on the server (but always nice). Food is fairly priced.

Nice and cozy
Very nice place, wonderful alternative to big, loud chain restaurants. Good size menu - not overwhelming, but enough choices. Wine list wasn't all that extensive, but quite reasonable - a few good options. Exceptional service, I forgot we had it here in States. The waiter took a very good care of us without hovering over us all the time. We were there on Tuesday night and it was very quiet, cozy and food was coming on time. Not sure what's going on there when it's packed.
All in all it's a very good find, we'll make it our new to-go place, as our favorite Italian place has closed. I will recommend Coco Pazza to everybody who likes old world charm and good food.

Wonderful Neighborhood Gem!
This was our second time dining at Coco Pazzo and it was just as wonderful as the first time! The service was a bit slow even though the restaurant thinned out (we were there late) but overall the food was fantastic, the wine selection diverse, and the ambiance perfect for a small 4 person birthday celebration.
I would like the wait staff to be a little more well versed on the wine list for suggestions, descriptions, etc. but overall fantastic! We will be back!!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great value for great food!
This was our second visit and once again, it was a great meal! If you go early and get the Sunset Menu you absolutely won't find a better deal in town. Very tasty food and attentive service. Check it out and you will wish you would have done it sooner.

This was our first time as
This was our first time as we are new to the neighborhood............wont be our last. Food and service were out of this world. Only downside would be that our waiter, Alessandro, was finishing out his last night at Coco Pazzo. Very disappointing to hear - he made our night with food and wine suggestions - all bang on! But - we will be back and hope everything is still perfection. I had the salmon and my daughter had the pasta bolognese - both were excellent, and for dessert we shared the white chocolate bread pudding - again, simply perfect! Great suggestion on a sauvignon blanc wine also - cant wait to go back!

Moving soon to Missouri City and have been trying out some of the restaurants in advance. This is it - the hidden gem. Food is first rate, service is excellent - prices are good - just an excellent restaurant. Cant wait till we move and can come here more often.

Great local resturant
Wine list has been reduced since our last visit but the food is still outstanding. Our group of four had two fish and two pasta dishes and everyone loved their meal.

Italian Gem not to be Missed!
We thought Coco Pazzo was quite a find last Saturday. From the time we walked in we found the entire staff to be on their game.
Only "slight" I would have on the entire experience is that they did not have any Italian beers. My girlfriend and I had a wonderful spinach salad. She had a minestrone soup (more like a tasty stew) and I had a trout special with spinach, it was superb. The staff all worked together at the tables to make sure we were taken care of. We shared the triple taste dessert and it was a huge hit with espresso.
We loved the hanging glass wall, the elegant lighting and of course the staff made this an unexpected surprise. We will definitely be back and soon.
