    Could not even chew the bread. Asked waitress for different bread she said that’s all they have and said we could order a $10 appetizer bread. Had the Cantalloni and was super salty. Waitress was too much in a hurry to take the time with us. We have always had good experience there. Not so much this last time.

    Pazzo Italiano has become not only our favorite Italian restaurant in Destin. It is our favorite restaurant of any kind in Destin. The food is always great. The atmosphere is wonderful and the service is fantastic. We always ask for Tibor to be our server. He does an outstanding job and he makes a great experience even better.

    We had reservations for 6:30 and a table was ready on time. This was for my wife’s birthday which the restaurant knew prior to showing up. We were seated at the very first table on the right as soon as entering. The evening was cold outside so every time someone walked in or out the area around the table became extremely cold which made my wife and kids uncomfortable. Not to mention while people waited for their table they had to stand right up next to your back as seated which is also very uncomfortable. I just wish that because it was a special day for my wife that maybe a little better seating for the occasion would have been nice. Our waitress was very nice but extremely busy so she was not able to keep our drinks filled. We waited for awhile to get refills on water and tea.

    Our food was spectacular! However your bar tender did not listen to us when we asked him to pace our meal out.. Our entrees arrived before our salads…. They brought the salads and took the entrees back and gave 3 seconds before the entrees arrived back!! Ridiculous! The bar tender had several other issues with other patrons as well!! They need to retrain him! The food made up for his poor performance!

    We were a group of 6 (3 couples) who routinely dine at this location. We did a reservation just to be proactive since a Saturday night. The waiter thought himself a comedian joking about upgrading to a $100 glass of wine, couldn’t remember to pick up drink orders from the bar, and literally at one point asked what our food order was as everything was coming out without order or reason. It was a Jan night, not that busy. To top off, the restaurant now charges a 3.5% service charge for credit cards. Mind you, they don’t have cash to provide change.

    We made a reservation thru “open table”. We arrived about 15 minutes early but they had our table ready and were nice enough to allow us to sit down. Glad we made reservations because their walk-in wait was between 45-50 minutes. We ordered calamari as an appetizer and it was good. Could have used a little more seasoning tough. I ordered the soup of the day and I have no complaints about it. My husband even asked if he could try it because it looked really good. My husband ordered the chicken Alfredo and enjoyed it. Since I had order a soup I just ordered a salad. Our waiter was great. He was busy but always made sure to check on us. We will definitely continue coming to this restaurant.

    I always love the Penne Vegetariane. Our server seemed to be rushed. She didn’t wait to hear everyone’s responses to her questions, during ordering. However, she has a great suggestion for wine.

    Didn’t accept open table points. I have eaten here many times and alway gotten my point. Now they have a cancellation policy of $30 per person. I even went through this new process of the cancellation policy even I don’t like this new policy and then get home to see the points are not approved after our party of six spent over $300.

    Our server was knowledgeable and made several recommendations. The restaurant and menu has promise for an authentic Italian restaurant, but the food quality did not deliver. My pasta was served in a bowl of water, which wilted the Arugula and made the dish a soggy mess. The main dishes were served while we were only half way through the appetizers, leading us to feel rushed. There was a large Christmas party who were particularly loud and not the mood we were hoping for, but it is the season!
