We should have known when we walked into an empty room at noon on a Thursday. The pasta special really should have been called "pasta surprise" because the only thing special about it was it cost about $8 more than it should. Service was rushed, then absent completely. I don't get why they wanted us out so fast when the restaurant wasn't busy. The food was ok, however I can think of at least a half-dozen places within a 5-iron that provide better value. I'm excited to try whatever takes the space next, though, since this place won't last.

Pazzo's is my go to place for lunch in the Loop. Never disappointed and a great value.

This new branch of Coco Pazzo is excellent! The only reason it wasn't mobbed before the opera last Saturday night must be that it is not yet well known. We were delayed because Othello at Navy Pier ran long, but I called ahead and was accommodated easily and cheerfully. The waiter was excellent, recommending an excellent pinot grigio from Venice to go with my sauteed sea scallops, which were perfect in a wine cream sauce. My companion had the fusilli with Italian sausage, which he loved. While I had no dessert, he enjoyed the chocolate fudge cake. Even though we had been late, arriving after 6:15 for a 7:30 opera across the street, we were there in plenty of time. We will be sure to return.

The service is always friendly and the food is fantastic!

I go there for business lunches and the atmosphere is perfect for small group discussions.

Very long wait at lunch time: since seated waited for half hour for the food to come.
Offered a second basket of bread after 40 minutes or so, after all the food came, obviously no longer needed.

The waiter disappeared after taking our order and never returned until it was time to present the check. Our food was delivered by other kitchen help. The fish entree was breaded even though this was not noted on the menu. We would have mentioned this if we had ever seen our waiter. It was so slow that even though we had planned on having dessert and allowed 1 hr and 45 minutes, there wasn't time to have dessert or coffee by the time the waiter reappeared. Needless to say, we will not be returning.

Made reservations for 5:30, because it was close to the Lyric Opera. Front dining room/bar is pretty loud (after work crowd), I didn't mind it and the hostess did offer us a table in the back dining room if we wanted something more quiet. The food was great, service was good, our server did not hover but was always around when needed. I would definitely recommend this place for a drink after work or dinner before the opera.
