Good but not great. The recipes seem almost overdone rather than sticking to excellent ingredients simply prepared. Didn’t feel rushed but timing of courses too close. We were done in a little over an hour.

Upon getting to the restaurant we asked to sit outside and were told we could not, even though there was 4 tables empty. The hostess went out of her way not to even try to sit us outside. When we left the same tables were empty. So much for accommodating. The food was good the service was excellent. There are a lot of great restaurants in Naples time to move on.

One of the restaurants in town that you can always count on! The food is always good, the service always top shelf, the bar keep makes a great drink. What is not to like?
We always take our guests because we know that they will enjoy the evening.

My friends and I visit Pazzo every year and his year my brother and his wife joined us. We had a superb dinner and the service we received from Roberto was great. He did everything he could to make us feel at home and never rushed us. The food was outstanding and that is what keeos us coming back.

"Went to Pazzo with my wife Sunday for their Wine and Dine Menu. We were not disappointed. We love the relaxed and friendly atmosphere of this Restaurant. Frank was our Server- what a gem! Truly a friendly, and knowledgeable person. We definitely will return and ask that he be our Server. The Tuscan Bean Soup is a winner!! I had the Rigatoni Arrabbiata- I'm getting hungry just thinking about it now! My wife had the Tortellini-Outstanding!! We will be back, and soon!

The menu options were surprisingly limited and the prices surprisingly high. Service was fair at best – we had to request water and butter several times, and our waiter always seem to be busy with other tables. We live in Naples and dine out several times a week. This was a special occasion and we were disappointed with our experience at Pazzo.

I always enjoy Pazzo. The atmosphere and ambiance are inviting. Great service without hovering and a knowledgeable waiter. Will our waiter on Saturday night was very good ; his service is very professional and friendly
I think of Pazzo as one of the best on 5th Ave

Food is obviously good. However, what Italian runs out of prosecco? Would have expected the manager to go to another restaurant and. Get a couple of bottles instead of blaming the local drinks rep not turning up! We had 2 meals cold when served but the food served was of good quality. This was a simple case of management not handling a situation very well. That is what makes a last night in Naples disappointing

First time there , and it was Very busy last night. Service was not good at all. Our food took forever to come!!!!! I received the wrong salad order, then a friend and I switched. My husband across the round table got my salad with dressing on the side. I wasn’t asked if I wantedParmesan cheese on my pasta...I had to chase down our waiter to get it. The pasta dish I got was just ok...pasta over cooked. I don’t think I’ll be back
