Confusing menu- early bird for bar and not for DR-except for ‘some drinks’ (not ours). Maybe the new renovations will work. For now, disappointment.

We enjoyed our experience at Pazzo’s. The food was delicious and served hot and cooked to perfection. My only complaint is that when we arrived for out reservation, we were asked to wait for a few minutes and told we could get a drink at the bar. Come to find out, the drinks at the bar are more expensive than the drinks at the table. Why? Many people just sit at the bar and drink and don’t order food is what we were told. However, we did have reservations and did order food. Just seems to me a bit misleading when you’re going in for a happy hour/early bird special.

Haven’t been here for over 2 years due to food quality going downhill, and problems with portion size. Was now pleasantly surprised. Went with wife and two relatives. Food and service was excellent. Our waiter, Jamie, took very good care of us. Two persons had the grilled chicken breast which they said was very good. One person had their favorite dish, the Vitello “Del Prete” which is always very good. I had the veal piccata which was perfectly cooked. Portion sizes were perfect, especially for the “early dining” prices which are half off the regular menu. Will definitely be back.

We have always loved the restaurant and love it especially in the summer months. However, tonight’s experience was disappointing. The table next to us was given complimentary after dinner drink. The waiter explained it was what the restaurant was offering in the summer months before the restaurant closes for renovations. Our waitress didn’t even offer this to us. The service was not what it has been in the past.

Sat outside on a warm evening. Food and service was excellent. Went for the early dining and the value was superb. Half price off their regular entree. Wait staff was very accommodating and efficient. Definitely going back!

In a word, disappointing. Our appetizer that we shared, a crespelini, tasted like leftover manicotti. Both of our entree’s were mediocre at best. We will not be returning, no matter what kind of deal they say they are offering.

Superb food, made even better by the great, friendly, knowledgeable service! Best salmon my wife has ever had and my veal house speciality was incredible. The homemade sausage is great.

A little DRAUGHT Peroni would be helpful but space is an issue. Delightful place, second visit, will be there more frequently!

Pazzo is a tried and true Naples classic. I've been dining there for 20 years and it never disappoints. Dakota was our server for the evening and he was attentive but not intrusive. The gorgonzola encrusted filet was outstanding! With their great summer specials, I look forward to dining many times in the next few months.

Extremely disappointing experience for a 5th ave. restaurant. My wife and I arrived and was seated inside at a corner table near the bar. Once we sat down we were immediately blasted with the AC system vent near our table. I asked our waiter (Will) if we could move to a table away from the vent. He went on to say that all of the inside tables are under vents and that the people next to us and another table also complained but there was nothing he could do. So we sucked it up. After about 15 minutes my wife was extremely cold so she moved to the side of the table to see if that would help. It did not it only made her freezing on her right side. Then a large group of 8 with a baby was sitting next to us and the grandfather yelled and demanded to be moved because the baby would catch a cold. So they moved them into the other corner round table under cover. Meanwhile my wife became so cold that she had me get to fabric napkins from the other table so she could put them on her shoulders. No she didn’t bring a sweater but it was 82 out. Our meal came and the food was very good but immediately got cold. I once again asked the waiter why he could not raise the thermostat so that the AC would turn off for a few minutes. He replied that he has no control over it and the biggest reason is because it is now out of season (the snow birds have left) that the restaurant wasn’t filled. I told him the reason is because they have the front door open so that they can tend to the outside tables, leaving the warm air coming in making the AC stay on completely.
