Fantastic food & service!

The sauce on the food was so strong and spicy that it literally made me ill that night. A simple glass of soda water also had a bad strong taste. A second glass was just the same. Don't know why they try to add taste to soda water when just plain is more than acceptable.

Not the same pazzo from years ago. Small portions and the service was just ok. Limited menu. Disappointed

Wonderful Italian dining in Naples. Everything was wonderful and they were very patient with our delayed arrival.

We arrived two hours early for our reservation and checked in hoping that something earlier might come up. We walked around for awhile before heading back to the restaurant about 40 minutes early. We got seats at the bar and ended up eating there. Food was excellent, although it took an incredibly long time to arrive. They handled it extremely well. We would definitely go back! Both my companions had the Alfredo but different versions and both raved about it. I had the fish special and it was delicious. Gelato was out of this world!

We had a 7:45pm reservation. It’s obvious they booked too many 6:00pm reservations because none of those early tables flipped in time. All of the reservations around us were 30-40 minutes late. And then therefore the food was late and the servers were left dealing with the angry crowd. We have been here a lot and we love the food. This was obviously a function of poor management. The service did the best they could but there’s nothing they can do with the kitchen in the seating a 30 to 40 minutes behind.

We have been going to Pazzo for over 20 years. We’ve always enjoyed the food and ambiance. Unfortunately this visit left a bad taste. The service was fine, the food was fine. The problem was that it took almost 1 1/2 hours to get our food. The waiter was very apologetic but apparently the problem was the kitchen. Many people around us were complaining about the delay of the food and that set a negative tone for the evening. We were trying to be patient as we had children with us. When we did get our food, one order was incorrect and that caused a further delay. We are now a little hesitant to go back to Pazzo due to this experience. It would be nice to receive some encouragement that this was a one time event and not the way things are happening now at Pazzo.

Food was excellent, but don’t order the capacino. It was like dish water with no froth. Service was borderline, but waiter said he was new

My wife and I brought high school friends visiting from New York to Pazzo because it's such a terrific restaurant. The four of us each tried different entrees and all meals were delicious! Our friends commented that Pazzo was as good, if not better, than any of their NY Italian restaurants. That's saying something!! Our waitress couldn't have done a better Job...her name was Jelena. Her recommendations were a hit and she was fabulous. Thanks again Pazzo!!!

Our daughter and family were visiting to celebrate my husband’s 75th birthday. We decided to experience the early dining menu and were extremely satisfied. The food was wonderful! I love the large menu offered in the early dining menu. There were unique items for appetizers, salads, and main dishes.....all delicious! This is definitely one of the best on Fifth ave. In Naples!

One negative was regarding service. We were seated in a very comfortable booth which was perfect for our family of 5. When the appetizers and salads were served, the waiters were serving from behind the booth which was very strange. Also, the waiter served the appetizer and salad together which we assumed meant we were being rushed through dinner. Our son in law asked the waiters to serve appetizers from the front of the table and we asked that our salads be removed until we finished our appetizers. This didn’t take away from our overall experience but it was surprising in such a good restaurant.

All of the food and the service were top notch. I had the veal chop special which was one of the best I have ever had.

Black mussel appetizer was amazing and so was my husband’s pasta (short rib meatballs & sausage).

Daughters chicken nuggets and fries over cooked. My veal dish $56.00 salad extra
. Not worth dining to.

We dine here often. Usually a very nice experience. This time however they did not have a delivery of mozzarella, a main ingredient in a salad, which 3 of us wanted. My fish was way to spicy.

My husband and I have been to Pazzo before and have always enjoyed the food. However, this time I didn't care for the food that I ordered. For an appetizer we shared the meatballs which weren't very good. I had the veal marsala and didn't enjoy it all. The meat was tender but the
sauce, at best, was fair and the pasta that came with it was also fair My husband also had a veal dish (he can't remember the name of it) and also thought the veal was tender but didn't care for
the sauce either. I think that Pazzo needs a new chief. There are too many good restaurants in
Naples to frequent one that isn't as good as it once was.

My wife and I had an almost perfect evening at Pazzo! The early-bird meal was delicious, service (John) friendly & helpful and a wonderful atmosphere. We look forward to returning!
