Excellent, everything from the initial sitting to the final dessert. Best Italian I’ve ever had. & food was wonderful. I will return again soon.
have had many good experiences at Pazzo Italiano. This was not one of them.
Too much confusion at reception desk when first arrived and the place was too loud and appeared very disorganized.
Food was good though. Will give them another chance
Very good. Had reservation, but was seated before time. Food was wonderful as well as the service. Crowded, but distance safe! Highly recommend.
We went for the food and were not disappointed. The unique selections were exciting and the freshness was apparent. The service was good although the stupis masks mad it not as intimate with our waitstaff. Food came out very quickly. We are going back. Didn;t give a higher review because this was a one time experience and I would like several dinning experiences before giving it a superior rating.
Food and service were top notch excellent! It does get busy around dinner time so I would recommend reservations or take out.
Great menu and food. Friendly staff and great service. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food and service! Grazie!!!
It was nice. Great to have a vegetarian option on the menu, but added cheese without asking.
Went out to dinner, hoping for a restaurant that would abide by social distancing guidelines and COVID standards. Thankfully we got just that and we were able to separate from others. The food was excellent, large portion sizes so we shared our entree. Highly recommend to locals and out of towners
For the price it was expensive to only get the entree and no salad.
The food was amazingly and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. We come eat there every time we come to Destin!
Pazzo makes excellent wood fired pizza. The topping combos seem a little limited. The crust is very tender and it’s served fresh out of the oven. The house salad deserves a shout out because it is beautifully composed and delicious. The small salad is also a generous portion that 2 can easily share. Pasta dishes are very good and as you would guess they slew heavily to the seafood side. Their lasagna is very good and extremely rich. Dessert is good but not great. The tiramisu is very reliable. The special dessert is usually a cake which can be good or sometimes it’s dry. Nice wine selections. Overall a very good choice for dinner in Destin. The one drawback right now is due to COVID distancing, it’s hard to get a table indoors and the summer evening sun is blinding on their patio as well as making it quite hot. Despite that - plan in advance, make a reservation, and snag an indoor table.
Food and service were great, this place has pretty authentic Italian dishes
Pazzo was excellent our server and bartender paid extra close attention to our orders and drinks! The restaurant was very celiac friendly. 10/10 would eat here again.
Came in for Osso Buco special. Did not disappoint- the flavors were delicious. Chocolate hazelnut cake- who doesn’t like that. Again please, soon.
Great food, friendly staff, beautiful restaurant, amazing place
It was my birthday. The food, the service, everything was great.
Having lived in Italy for 3 years, I was very excited to hear that Pazzo served authentic Italian food. This isn’t your typical American Italian restaurant. You actually feel like you are in Italy eating real Italian food. My husband & I were so happy when we sat at the pizza bar & the guys making the pizza we’re speaking Italian. Pazzo has an authentic Italian brick pizza oven with actual Italians making the pizzas. We had caprese, pasta, pizza & tiramisu for dessert. Everything was excellent! Even though this restaurant is almost 2 hours from my house, I will definitely make a the trip once a month to enjoy their amazing food!
The food is sooooo good! Its also hard to take your kids to a nicer restaurant because they don't always like the food offered. Both my boys devoured their pizzas. Cannot recommend this place enough.
Always stop here once or twice while in Destin!!! Food is great and portions are very good size!!!
Service was great, food was incredible! Very authentic and nice ambiance.
We were very disappointed with the sauce and portions. We ordered the mozzarella and tomato appetizer and were disappointed with the dryness of the mozzarella- it was not moist as with fresh mozzarella. The sauce for it was absolutely delicious. I ordered lasagna- the piece was about 3.5 inches square drenched in sauce. The sauce needs major help! VERY acidic! My husband ordered eggplant parm, side of meatballs, side of sausage and we shared a side of gluten free pasta. The sauce ruined everything. We didn’t want to ruin our evening out after 24 years of not going out alone together- didn’t want to make a scene. After my regretfully letting you know about this, I hope you will check into it. We were so very disappointed. 😞
Excellent food. Ordered the pappardelle, and I usually stick to the basic pastas. So glad I decided to do that. One of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. Kids ordered ravioli and spaghetti, and they both loved theirs. Service was great even though they had more outside dining than normal. Will be going back next time we are in Destin.
Everything we tasted was delicious and I mean EVERYTHING!!! The service from Andre was outstanding, the interior was beautiful and we will definitely be returning the next trip to Destin!
Good place to eat. I had the egg pasta with sausage in a white cream sauce. It was delicious. My wife had the eggplant parmigiana which she said was good, but maybe a little bland on the sauce.
The bread served with olive oil and garlic was super good. I loved it.
My biggest complaint is that we bought a $70 bottle of wine that turned out to $19.99 retail. It was a good wine, but I don’t like to be ripped off. That is more than 3x retail and it is unusual to see that these days. Surprisingly (not), it was the one that the waiter recommended.
Great food and great service! Would highly recommend!
Great Italian restaurant! Recommended!
Great food and even better service. Highly recommend
Everything was great! Thanks!
Love this place! So thankful they were still having dine in right now but this is authentic Italian and a must have for anyone visiting Destin!
Pleasantly surprised. The pasta dishes were outstanding so was the calamari. The desserts? Fugetabout! Service was outstanding. Overall a grear experience. If I lived here, this would be my go to for Italian. Grwat job!
This was our third time visiting this restaurant and the food is always outstanding.
We always get a great meal at Pazzo. This night we went for the Osso Bucco special. A pork version, well seasoned and perfectly cooked. Each of our portions included a large, meaty shank, wide noodles, and delicious sauce. We each had a Tuscan wine, excellent accompaniment. We started with the calamari which is lightly breaded and fried, fresh and also delicious...enough for 4.
Food was excellent and service exceeded that (which is near impossible to do). Highly recommend.
One of the best meals I've ever had in Destin
Up scale Italian dining in both food and ambiance. Very nice wine list with ample choices at moderate pricing and Barolos at the high end.
Nice restaurant. Server seemed rushed and not knowledgeable about Gluten options. Drinks are weak so choose a wine or beer otherwise you’ll be sipping juice. Pizza is actually really good but small.
One of the best true Italian restaurants. A large variety of food choices. From brick oven pizza, wonderful salads or a delicious dinner meal. As a local, it's one of my go to restaurants. Bon Appetit!!
Loved the pizza chefs and Noel the waiter!
