Great place for a meeting
You can hear the other members of your party talking, many of the newer restaurants this can be a problem. The food is excellent as well. Very reasonable prices. Service is adequate.

The food was outstanding especially at lunch time. one of the best servers I ever had. everything is top drawer, but at moderate prices. Place is bright and airy and welcoming. I would certainly make it a habit to return.

Convenient dining across from Lyric
Picked this place based on convenient location across from the opera and good reviews. Friday at 5:30 PM -- the crowd in the front (bar) area was at full TGIF-volume. Fortunately, a back room is much quieter (but really lacking in "atmosphere"). Hugo, our server, was welcoming, well informed, delightful. Asked up front if we had opera or theatre tickets and the time we wanted to be on our way. Service was excellent -- well-paced but not rushed. Breaded fried calamari was very tasty. Caesar & house salads were fine. Chicken w/ artichokes, tomatoes, etc. (my husband's entrée) was very good (he said, I didn't get a taste). I had scallops with cream sauce over linguine--good, but left lots of pasta as sauce was filling & a little monotonous.

Great Meeting Spot
Very nice lunch at Pazzo's. Was a working lunch, wait staff was attentive but not hovering, enabling us to continue conversations without interruptions. Highly recommend the Pazzo's chopped salad - delicious and healthy both. Just the right portion. Others had the swordfish special, which they enjoyed as well. Decor is great, noise not a problem. Great addition to the South Wacker area!

Decent Food, Slow Service
The place is beautiful, but the service was painfully slow and the food was not all that great, considering the $20/plate price.

Great Company Lunch
Great spot for a casual - mildly formal business lunch.

We had a quick dinner before the theater. Food was excellent and the service very timely. Pazzo's has several locations in the Loop. Well done! We'll be back!

Great for a quick lunch!
Had a quick lunch with an old friend at Pazzo's and it worked out well. Got in and out within an hour, and the food was tasty.

Great for Lunch
Took a lawyer friend to lunch. Price was very reasonable for my budget, and we had a great spacious booth to catch up on our life's gossip. We both had the Southwest Steak Salad and asked for dressing on the side. Unfortunately, both salads came with the dressing mixed in already, and when we pointed that out to the waitress, she could only say "Oh, sorry" and then left the table. If it weren't for that, would have rated the service as "Outstanding."

Job Across The Street
Pazzo's is beautiful; food is great; employees are very nice; prices are reasonable; atmosphere was relaxing; location is great for lunch and dinner for me, personally. I love the city and this is a great place to entertain my friends and family!

Great service & food!
Overall, was really happy witwh the lunch experience. Went to coworkers, each of us having something different. The portions were right on, and salmon was cooked perfectly. I had the seafood pasta, which was supposed to be spicey, which was not, but it was fine once our wonderful waitress brough me some hot pepper flakes. Highly recommend this place for lunch, and I'm sure after work dinner would be great too!

Reliable in every way
Good spot for lunch. Service and food are reliably good. Noise level is moderate for a downtown lunch spot. If you can go early (before noon) and get a booth, you can have a good business discussion.

Great carb loading experience
My husband and I were in town for the Chicago marathon and needed a great Italian restaurant for our carb loading dinner with our other running friends. This place fit the glove perfectly. Tucked away from all the touristy areas like we wanted and the food was outstanding. The restaurant had a great ambience too, playing good music but not too loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation. All the pasta dishes we ordered were very tasty. I would definitely recommend this place.

We had lunch before the opera. The service was excellent and the food very good. We were seated quickly and was quite comfortable in a booth. Thank you for the previous reviews - they do help quite alot.

Great new spot!
Food was delicious! I finished my plate even with the bread, oil and cheese that was on the table. Great place for lunch in the loop. My guest was very pleased at this restaurant that I had picked. Neither of us had ever been. We loved it!

The food is great and the service is typically fast over lunch. The service can be a little inconsistent, but I find this is a great place for lunch, or after work drinks. I even get carryout to take home for dinner sometimes.

Good for Pre-Opera dinners
Happy there is now an additional spot within a block of the Lyric at what had been Emil's. One North and Lloyds was getting boring and food at One was mediocre and service at Lloyd's has gone down hill. Food here is fine and service is attentive but not annoying. Servings are huge. Risotto is great comfort food before a long performance. Cocktails small but well made.
