We were on vacation and sought out some Italian food in Destin. We were very fortunate to have found Pazzo. Ridiculously good food. Don’t let the strip mall fool you. It is great!

Quiet night at restaurant. Great service and the mussels appetizer was outstanding as was the shrimp pasta dish we shared. Tiramisu some of the best we have had.

Sorry we can only eat here once a year!

The Pazzo Italiano took wonderful care of our 30+ member party. The food was fantastic, the service was friendly and efficient, and the ability to move about a bit to mix and mingle was wonderful. We never felt crowded or like we were a hindrance to anyone. Quite the perfect evening.

The restaurant was beautiful and the ambiance was nice for our girls trip dinner. The food and service was amazing. Would definitely return. The only complaint we had was that we were offered shots and then were charged for them. However, everything else surpassed out expectations!

Huge delicious calzones, pizzas and fabulous service. We called ahead to notice a birthday in our group, and brought yummy cake with candle and singing. Wood fire oven and grill made the garlic toast so flavorful, and the crusts were perfection. Pasta was light and tasty, served just the right temperature, and the broccoli soup with gouda cheese was amazing. Another home run!

This was our first trip to the Santa Rosa beach area. I was looking for restaurants to try while we were in town and came across Pazzo, I am so glad I did. The food was excellent. All of our entree’s were delicious and even the veal on my veal piccata was extremely tender, which is rare these days . The bread and olive oil they bring you when you first sit down is so good you could just make a meal off of that!

We have eaten at numerous Italian Restaurants worldwide, Pazzo is by far one of the best!!
My wife and I were celebrating our 40th anniversary,so I wanted to do treat her to a great meal and evening while on vacation here in Destin. I accomplished both!
Pazzo is the “ticket” while in Destin!!

We enjoyed our dinner very much. The drinks were delicious. My husband ordered a red sangria and I had a blackberry mule! We ordered a veggie pizza which also was cooked perfectly and very tasty. We shared a piece of chocolate banana cake that was a special that night which was super moist and super good.
The wait staff are very friendly and we will definitely return to this restaurant!!!

An amazingly good and authentic Italian restaurant located in a shopping center not far from Crystal Beach. The ambiance was upscale and contemporary but the prices were fair and reasonable for the quality of the food. Our salads were fresh and delicious. We got the Pizza Bianca with prosciutto and mushrooms. Outstanding! Unfortunately we don't live in the area because I'd love to try some of the other Italian dishes that looked awesome.

Outstanding. Definitely one of the highlight meals of our visit to Destin. The service was attentive and friendly with a clear passion for the success of the restaurant. The food was phenomenal and beautifully portioned. Not too formal but certainly not an overly casual place for dinner; just right.

Beware of the temptingly scrumptious grilled sourdough such that you have space for the entree’s. Veal Piccata was cooked appropriately and perfectly balanced with the sauce. The pizza Diavola was delicious and of adequate size for a hungry individual or to share amongst two.

Definitely a place we would recommend to anybody looking for a special night out in Destin.
