The food here is AMAZING! I had the egg plant parmesan and my husband had the chicken Parmesan and it’s some of the best we’ve had. We will definitely visit again when we come back.

The food and service was excellent. You are given generous portions and everything is fresh. The bread is home made and very good. I highly recommend this place if you love Italian food.

6 diners - 2 good meals and 4 that were just average. The two cannelloni meals look small and cover in sauce. The two Marsala meals were sloppy looking and unappealing -and not very hot - the veal was tough on the one - the chicken on the other OK. The Lasagna was pretty good and the Penne Vodka were good. Almost missed the 18% tip that was automatically put on the bill because we were 6. That should have been mentioned. Overall not very impressed and we brought other people with us as in the past it has been really good.

We have been here many times in the past. Always had pizza which is delicious. A bit of a disappointment this time. We had requested a regular table when we made reservations about 5 days ahead but were seated at a high-top. We made it work but wonder why a choice is given when it cannot be honored. Warm bread with side of herbed/garlic olive oil was delicious. Caesar salad was standard fair. 6 of us had veal dishes. Pasta seemed like it was sitting in a pot too long. I like pasta al dente and the veal piccata was bland with only 2 mall pieces of veal. Drinks were good and service was excellent. Our waitress really excelled. We will return but only order the pizza.

We have been to Pazzo Italiano many times. This time we brought friends so they could give it a try. The service was terrible, took way to long to get our drinks, we both asked to split salads and she did not bring extra plates. We had to ask? Our entrees were substandard and our waitress never asked how our food was
I don't think we will be back

Went with the server's suggestion. The Satimbocca. First, I should have learned by now not to go with a server's suggestion at any restaurant. That said, it was good but overly salty. My date got a gluten free pepperoni pizza. While also good, too expensive - $17. Domino's make's a better one at half the price. Service was fine as well as the atmosphere. Frankly, we only went to Pazzo out of convenience. Was very close to where we were staying at the beach. Yes, we will go again.

We had reservations but still had to wait. That was disappointing. The food was very good as always. Our server was good. My only issue was having to wait and that we were put in a small booth when our reservation was for 3. That made the table crowded.

Great evening out to celebrate Valentine's Day. As usual, the food was excellent. My wife and I have visited several times. The service was slightly unresponsive and slow, but overall a knowledgable wait staff that excelled when they stopped at the table. Nice ambience with a pizza oven and bar dominating the dining room. The one negative to the layout is the closeness of the tables. The tables are extremely close together. Management should remove tables to allow more intimacy. Despite the negatives, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice night out. Great place. We will return in the near future.

Went there on Valentines Day. Price, quantity, atmosphere, service was all good. I was looking for good Italian food. I love lasagna, I get it anytime it’s available when I go out to eat. It was very bland. It was not spiced up at all for Italian. Wife’s dish was also bland tasting. My lasagna was not as good as Stouffer’s.

Pleasant surroundings. Nice greeting. Immediately served delicious warm bread with flavored olive oil. A very good Caesar salad created high expectations for the pasta entrees, but they didn’t quite get there. The basic marinara sauce was good and the pasta was fine but not really rich or tasty enough. I would definitely go back, maybe try something different.

The homemade pasta is the best I have found in Destin. I like the way they do regular and small salads, although the small salad is still enough for two! The pizza also is one of the best.

It was a birthday dinner for two and I made a note of that with the reservation. That was never observed or acknowledge.
We were seated instantly, and water, bread, and olive oil dip (very tasty, with just the right amount of garlic) were shortly on the table. These are the signs of a good restaurant. There was a full bottle of water also on the table, so we could refill our glasses without the assistance of a waiter or asking for it.
We had a fettuccini Alfredo and a mussels bean soup, Both were excellent, although the fettuccini was a bit too rich to my taste (but that's just me) and the dish supposed to be rich.
With two (large) glasses of Pinot Grigio, the check with a 20% tip came to $66. Very reasonable.
Wouldn't hesitate to visit this restaurant again or recommend it to my friends. It is also very conveniently located (ample parking) to visitors/residents of the Destin-Miramar Beach area.

This was a birthday celebration. The attention given us by the staff was extraordinary and my guest was actually surprised by the birthday tiramisu ... and the singing. The food was excellent - I can honestly say that this is now our favorite area Italian restaurant.

The night started off a little rocky, but turned out to be very good. We had reservations for 4 for 5:30 PM. Upon arrival (about 10 minutes early), there were many tables available. We were asked to wait, which was fine except there is no where to wait except by the door. We were in the way of people coming in and people leaving. The hostess stand was right at the entrance and so were we and everyone else who was waiting. It became a bit uncomfortable for everyone. The manager seemed a little stressed. We were seated promptly at 5:30. It took a little while to be served, but not an unacceptable wait. We ordered calamari for our appetizer and it was very good. The bread and oil and salads were also very good. All of us loved the house made dressing. They have a nice wine selection and we chose a bottle of Merlot. For entrees we had Pappardelle Dello Chef = excellent. The pasta was nice and light and sauce was very tasty. We had the Paccheri Della Mamma = okay. The shrimp were over cooked and the sauce was a bit bland. Our friends had the eggplant parmesan which they rated okay, and the fettuccine bolognese which they said was excellent. For dessert we shared the nutella calzone and requested some vanilla ice cream to go with it. They really should serve this with ice cream routinely. It was pretty good. The special was a blueberry cake which was excellent. The cake was nice a moist and full of flavor. There are not a lot of really good italian restaurants here. We will be back.
