Music in restaurant was not for dining. Food was good not great. For Italian it was in need of flavor. Our server was very good. Until they decide hip hop isn’t dinner music we probably won’t be back

I've heard the food wasn't great here, but wanted to try myself (neighborhood spot). Drinks were good and servers were nice but the food was bland and my order didn't even come with the prosciutto that it mentioned on the menu. It was also eggs benedict and the eggs were overcooked and the hollandaise sauce was not flavorful. Nothing to write home about as far as food but would go back for drinks.

Don't think we'll go back only because it was not easy to get to East Boston. Food was "fine" and a bit pricey. Service was great and super friendly.

Food was good but most importantly, the staff was excellent. Every single staff member we interacted with (at least 8 people) was pleasant, helpful and positive. This has to mean that management provides a positive work environment. Would suggest and would go back.

They were out of many items on the menu on a Saturday night. The bruschetta was tasteless, the burrata was okay, but had thick prosciutto slices and ham. The fishermen feast was also disappointing; it was alright.
So overall pretty disappointing which is a trend for that place.

Our server Emma gave very helpful suggestions. All our meals were excellent as well as the appetizers and unbelievable pistachio cake for dessert! Highly recommend.

We ate outside and it was nice and comfortable seating. Our server, a young woman was super nice and accommodating. We had the calamari as an app and they were good.My husband had the veal chop and he enjoyed it. I had the Sunday dinner and all the meats were delicious but I like my sauce with spice and more flavors. My husband also enjoyed the prawn special which he ate after his dinner BC he was still hungry. (I will say he had barely ate that day and was pretty hungry.) We shared the chocolate lava cake dessert and the presentation was very nice, tasted very good but the actual cake was very small. We love cocktails but the ones listed on their menu all have some sort of herbs in them which I don't care for. Also, some tasted very citrusy. The service was really great. Even our busser, a young man by the name of Saul was fantastic and super attentive. It was a good time and I am planning on returning to try their brunch.

Service & atmosphere were great, food was okay. Great burrata - its weirs to scrape cream off wood - maybe a regular plate would be better? The fig and ricotta bruschetta was soggy but the fig paste was really nice! The charcuterie board was really good and nicely presented, we did have to ask for more crostini. They missed removing a membrane on the octopus, so it made it both slimy and chewy, also there was WAY too much balsamic on it. Apps and drinks came out very quickly, but when it was time order dinner, even though there were several empty table all around us, the waitress warned the kitchen was backed up. We ended up waiting over 35 minutes for our dinner. The seafood risotto had two regular size shrimps on top but had very little seafood in the rice itself, it lacked flavor. The burger was under seasoned as well, although points for crispy bacon. The vodka sauce on the pasta dish was delicious, but you had to dig around for the stuff that was meant to be in it. Overall we had a nice evening, we shared a lot of dishes, but I would not return to spend the kind of money we did last night.

It was my first time there. I will be back. The service was wonderful. When we first ordered the waitress came back to tell me my meal would take a little longer then expected. We got a delicious fig appetizer and cocktails while waiting.
My veal chop was so good. It was a little costly but delicious. The chef sent us free deserts ( I rarely get desert) because if the wait for dinner. No problem. I ate my entire desert. I did take home part of my entrees. If the photo worked sorry I ate half of it b

Pazza does everything well, especially at its price point. It delivers traditional Italian at a reasonable cost with huge portions, delivered to you by an attentive and spry staff. We had zero complaints and will return again when we are in the area!

The food was either overcooked or undercooked. The waitress was not a very good listener. The music was too loud. Food on menu not in stock. Poor quality and service for a Mother’s Day celebration. Probably won’t go back
