    We had a fine experience at Pazzo. It was Valentines Night and one of the only decent restaurants that did not have a fixed price dinner menu. It was PACKED! They did an amazing job handling the crowd as it was overwhelming. My seafood pasta was delicious!

    We went on Valentine's Day with reservations. They were very busy so the service was slower than usual. The food was excellent. We had the Valentine's Day special. We have eaten here one other time from their regular menu and it was excellent too. We will be back!

    This has been a favorite local restaurant so it is unfortunate that my recent experience was not good. My husband and I had calamari as an appetizer and it was bland and rubbery. Not the usual quality we have had previously. From the salad menu I ordered the salmon and spinach salad. It was described as grilled salmon on top of crisp spinach, tossed with strawberries, Parmesan and strawberry vinaigrette. What I received was salmon (overcooked) on a bed of sautéed spinach and a couple of pieces of strawberry and Parmesan cheese. I don’t know what the spinach was sautéed in, but it was greasy and salty. This was definitely NOT a salad and it was unpleasant to eat. Terribly disappointed in this meal. My husband had a pizza and it was good as usual.

    We LOVE Pazzo italiano and eat here multiple times every visit to Destin. The service is patient and top notch. The food is impeccable. Excellent Caesar salad which we cannot pass up. The best and most authentic pasta carbonara we have EVER had. Every dish we’ve ever had has been wonderful - from the chicken piccata to pizza.

    We went for NYE. Our server was very nice and our meal was served extremely promptly, almost too quickly, to be honest. The food was pretty bland. We all got different dishes - pizza, fettuccine Alfredo, a pasta dish with seafood, and chicken Marsala, and all agreed that the food was sub-par. Almost seemed that it was made in big batches to accommodate quick serve for NYE, and we didn’t quite get that authentic, tasty Italian meal we were hoping for. It was fine but I wouldn’t return based on the fact that the food isn’t worth it.
