    Tried to seat us outside restrooms so asked for a different table. Once we were seated waited for at least 10+ minutes for someone to come and at least take our drinks requests. Ended up asking hostess if anyone was serving our table. After that very attentive. Overall ok not great.

    They served our party of 7 quickly and flawlessly. Our server was very knowledgeable. The chef’s special grouper with a pistachio crust and risotto was outstanding. The girls loved their pizza. Highly recommend for discerning palates.

    A member of my party had dietary restrictions and felt rushed to make a decision by the waiter. When the member of my party tried to order one of the waiter’s suggestions, he argued that it wasn’t a good option. The member of my party felt embarrassed and frustrated, and left to sit in the car. When the waiter returned, he didn’t apologize or didn’t acknowledge the absence of my party member. The food was amazing, but this made the experience negative overall.

    If you’re looking for authentic Italian food, this isn’t it. My husband ordered the margarita pizza. Easy right? Just 3 main toppings. Nope. No tomatoes at all and only a few sprigs of basil. I ordered the Napoletano calzone. First ingredient is ricotta cheese. If there was ricotta in there I couldn’t find it. The bright light of our visit was our server (we think her name is Bobe, she is from Hungary). She was wonderful. 5 stars for her. 2 stars for the food.

    Maybe the pizza is better. If you love lots of garlic you will love this spot. Bread was tough and not great, ravioli was good, spaghetti with meatballs predictable. seems like locally owned, strip mall location but nice inside. Bar side is super noisy.

    This restaurant features excellent food and service at a reasonable value. My complaints were that it is also too noisy (loud recorded music) for easy conversation and with inappropriate TVs, at least in the smaller sider room. This is not a sports bar. Further the chair seats are plain hard wood and uncomfortable. Of course, along the wall the leather like bench seats look soft. This is a fine Italian restaurant. Why not make the customers comfortable and willing to stay and eat and drink longer?

    We had an excellent dinner at Pazzo on the first night of our vacation. Everything was excellent with great service as well. The chicken piccata was some of the best I've ever had. We will definitely return on our next visit to the Destin/Miramar Beach area.

    This place was recommended and now we know why! Everything from our server, Cuna, who was adorable and so sweet to our appetizers— calamari so tender with a delicious marinara and the bread knots, soft and garlicky. Everyone got something different and we all agreed this was our best meal this week!

    Beautiful restaurant. Decided to try based on Trip Advisor reviews. Food was freshly made and delicious. The starter of bread and seasoned olive oil was great. Also shared a Caprese salad. It was wonderful. Then had Pizza Pazzo Italiano which is 4 pizzas (chef’s choice) on one pie. Unique idea. We liked it. One quarter pepperoni and Italian sausage, one quarter mushroom, one quarter cheese (ricotta and other cheeses), and one quarter prosciutto, dried tomatoes, and red pepper. Pizza baker cooked it just a tad too long (edges very brown), but it was still delicious. Finished up with Tiramisu. Fantastic dessert. All in all, very good meal and good value.

    Service was great. No complaints there. Staff was very attentive. However, food was very mediocre for the price. And just sitting in a typical shopping center you think the prices would be moderate. But mine and my wife’s dishes were very bland. The sauce tasted like it was watered down as opposed to “authentic”. Seems like it could use a punch of salt. The salmon tasted farm raised and a little over cooked. Nothing really had flavor.
