Food was very good but service felt a bit rushed. Our server was very nice but we just felt rushed and they weren’t overly busy to be trying to flip the table.

Dining at Pazzo was such a lovely experience. They have amazing cocktails, incredible authentic Italian food, and wonderful ambiance. We drove to Destin to celebrate a friend's birthday and thankfully stumbled upon this true gem. The wait staff was helpful, attentive, and did a great job of reading the vibe of our group. He made our time there incredibly fun and memorable. I would highly recommend Pazzo for an event, a gathering, or even if you're just going to sit at the bar and grab a pizza. We'll be fondly reminiscing of our night there for a long time.

Amazing food - especially the wood fire pizza! Service appears to be trying to pick up with the demand, but always with a smile!

Great Italian sauce on the spaghetti with meatballs that my husband ordered. It is a sweeter sauce which we prefer. I had the vodka sauce penne with shrimp and loved it too! The sauce was nice and light with just a hint of cream so I did not feel all bloated. Service was great and their wine selection is great! A bit noisy due to the number of large families who were there during our visit.

This was my birthday dinner selection and the food was great. More authentic than any other Italian restaurant I’ve been to. Their native language was used often, which I loveddd . I enjoyed the waitress, very friendly. Very accommodating. The ambiance was warm. Inviting. Noisy, but that was due to the amount of people in there of course. Packed house. Loved it. Had the Fettuccine Alfredo with chicken and shrimp. Caesar salad. Garlic knots and a peartini. My guests had lasagna and ravioli. They were all delicious per I and them. Buh bye.

Undoubtedly, our best meal this vacation. The most delicious spaghetti carbonarra I've ever had. The bruschetta appetizer can NOT be missed. It will be in our rotation for future visits. Add this one to your must try list!

I’ve been coming to Destin for 40 years and staying near Midbay Bridge for 10+ and hadn’t ever been to Paso before. Man have I missed out! Their food is authentic, they’ve got a nice Italian wine list, and it’s a perfect place for couples or families. Only suggestion is, if you like your pizza a little more crisp to request it that way, as the dough was bubbly and good but a bit soft. Can’t wait to go back!

Seating outside could have been better. Move table away from the door so that you do not have to deal with people coming and going.

Food was bland. All 4 of us thought it was average. I’m sensitive to salt and I had to salt my salad (dressing bland) and pasta. It didn’t have much flavor. I used the left over olive oil dipping sauce for the bread to drizzle over my entree.
4 people - 3 drinks from bar, 4 salads, 2 pizzas ( a bit bigger than personal size) and 2 pasta dishes with tip was $180. Not worth the money.

The food and drinks were amazing...you can tell there is a lot of care and pride taken into creating dishes that taste authentic and look beautiful. We cannot say enough good things about the staff who despite managing a very busy restaurant, made us feel like we were the only ones in the room. We would go back in a heartbeat...a new favorite all-time restaurant!

We went there for a family birthday dinner. I was glad we had reservations as it was already busy at 6pm. We sat inside but they had made a nice outdoor space. Our food and drinks came at a great pace. Great garlic knots, fettuccine and pizza. Great Pazzo Martini and Blackberry mule. Can’t wait to come back.

Really not impressed. It had good reviews, so we booked. Food was just smothered in sauces and for a $300 meal, it just didn’t seem worth the hype.

Food was okay - not the best Italian. Marinara was watery, seafood was over cooked. Bread was good but asked for more and took forever. Service was very slow and hardly saw our server. At end of meal we ordered dessert and coffee and after waiting 15 mins, we cancelled it. Atmosphere was nice but overall I wouldn’t recommend to others and don’t plan to go back.
