Awesome! great food & great service too
Great food and great service
The only negative was that it’s in a strip mall and looks out into the parking lot. Would be all 5 stars if it were close to the water
This is hands down the best Italian restaurant in Destin. The ravioli is a must, their pizzas are amazing and the desserts we loaded up on 4 of them. Make sure to try the Nutella calzone!! We sat at the pizza bar and it was like having dinner and watching a show. We will be back every time we’re in Destin!!
Seating was terrible. We we the only table way off restaurant in front os the “Jenny Craig” store with a poster promoting low carbs....took away the desire to eat pasta.
Great food and service. Used reservation so no wait at all!!! We’ll be back.
We are here on vacation and we were looking for a good spot to eat. This place has great food with great service! Would go back!
Best restaurant in Destin. Hands down. Good service with great food.
Our favorite Italian restaurant outside of NYC, Chicago or Boston. Always delicious, always friendly. Atmosphere is fun and casual. Perfect for the beach. Their Pasta Alla Vodka = Love. ;0)
Pizza looked amazing. Chicken Parm was great! Will add to my destination favorites list for sure!
Loved the food and the service! We’ll be back! DELISH!!
We normally have the Antipasto Salad and a pizza which are fabulous and highly recommend. This time we had the daily special and it was so full of flavor you could taste it in every bite.
Salad was fresh and bread was good. Kids pasta was saturated with sauce where it was kind of soupy. The shrimp and pasta was advertised as jumbo, but they were not jumbo comparatively. Servers were nice as well.
We love this restaurant. Excellent food. Personable wait staff.
We have always enjoyed coming to Pazzo - and given the recent dining restrictions, we were happy to see that they are still doing a great job! We were seated at one of their outdoor tables (and expanded to include even more diners with social distancing). The starter of the grilled bread with dipping olive oil with herbs was good, as it always is. And we were entranced once we heard the nightly special - filet mignon with homemade pappardelle pasta with a gorgonzola cream sauce and asparagus on top! It was simply amazing (and priced reasonably to boot!). Service, as always, was impeccable. We just love coming to this place and will be back next week to enjoy their incredible pizza and pasta!
Really good food, they forgot to put red sauce on our pizza haha but quickly corrected it! Great wait staff. Would come back!
Great restaurant and one of first to reopen. Professional servers.
Great food, great service and staff!!
We are always happy after bringing out of town guests here for dinner!
The food here is AMAZING! I had the egg plant parmesan and my husband had the chicken Parmesan and it’s some of the best we’ve had. We will definitely visit again when we come back.
The food and service was excellent. You are given generous portions and everything is fresh. The bread is home made and very good. I highly recommend this place if you love Italian food.
Great service and great food! Definitely recommend and will be coming back!
6 diners - 2 good meals and 4 that were just average. The two cannelloni meals look small and cover in sauce. The two Marsala meals were sloppy looking and unappealing -and not very hot - the veal was tough on the one - the chicken on the other OK. The Lasagna was pretty good and the Penne Vodka were good. Almost missed the 18% tip that was automatically put on the bill because we were 6. That should have been mentioned. Overall not very impressed and we brought other people with us as in the past it has been really good.
Terrific food as always. The servers went out of their way to make my daughters birthday special.
Great pasta and pizza before the Seaside Half Marathon ‘20!
We have been here many times in the past. Always had pizza which is delicious. A bit of a disappointment this time. We had requested a regular table when we made reservations about 5 days ahead but were seated at a high-top. We made it work but wonder why a choice is given when it cannot be honored. Warm bread with side of herbed/garlic olive oil was delicious. Caesar salad was standard fair. 6 of us had veal dishes. Pasta seemed like it was sitting in a pot too long. I like pasta al dente and the veal piccata was bland with only 2 mall pieces of veal. Drinks were good and service was excellent. Our waitress really excelled. We will return but only order the pizza.
We have been to Pazzo Italiano many times. This time we brought friends so they could give it a try. The service was terrible, took way to long to get our drinks, we both asked to split salads and she did not bring extra plates. We had to ask? Our entrees were substandard and our waitress never asked how our food was
I don't think we will be back
Went with the server's suggestion. The Satimbocca. First, I should have learned by now not to go with a server's suggestion at any restaurant. That said, it was good but overly salty. My date got a gluten free pepperoni pizza. While also good, too expensive - $17. Domino's make's a better one at half the price. Service was fine as well as the atmosphere. Frankly, we only went to Pazzo out of convenience. Was very close to where we were staying at the beach. Yes, we will go again.
It was very good! Only complaint was you could not take your drink to the table from the bar!?
A great location on 30A for fantastic food and awesome ambiance! Love this restaurant!!!
We had reservations but still had to wait. That was disappointing. The food was very good as always. Our server was good. My only issue was having to wait and that we were put in a small booth when our reservation was for 3. That made the table crowded.
Everything was satisfactory but not spectacular. We wanted to be wowed but weren’t. Overall good but not great.
Great evening out to celebrate Valentine's Day. As usual, the food was excellent. My wife and I have visited several times. The service was slightly unresponsive and slow, but overall a knowledgable wait staff that excelled when they stopped at the table. Nice ambience with a pizza oven and bar dominating the dining room. The one negative to the layout is the closeness of the tables. The tables are extremely close together. Management should remove tables to allow more intimacy. Despite the negatives, I would recommend this for anyone looking for a nice night out. Great place. We will return in the near future.
Fabulous, our go-to place for Italian. Waiter was great, engaged with us and made the evening a real treat.
Went there on Valentines Day. Price, quantity, atmosphere, service was all good. I was looking for good Italian food. I love lasagna, I get it anytime it’s available when I go out to eat. It was very bland. It was not spiced up at all for Italian. Wife’s dish was also bland tasting. My lasagna was not as good as Stouffer’s.
Always love eating here! Great food and good service. Table bread is a craving I get once a day it is that good!!
We felt the seating was too close and not relaxing
