My wife and I were visiting Destin for the first time. We tried other restaurants in the area and have been disappointed. Pazzo food and service was excellent. I had the Spaghetti Pescatora which was just how I remember it from Sicily. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Love the food and the service is always wonderful! They have new wine flights that gave us the opportunity to try some wonderful wines that we wouldn’t normally be able to buy by the glass. We are locals and come here often.

The outdoor seating is essentially in the parking lot, so there were cars (and headlights) pulling in and parking directly behind us while we were eating. But the food was delicious and the prices are reasonable, so it more than compensated for the seating arrangements. We will definitely go back next time we visit the area, but will probably book a table inside.

Excellent service, food and ambiance. We will be back! Everything we ordered was wonderful from a starter of Calamari, the complimentary fresh artesian bread with herb dipping oil, wood fired pizza, three different pasta dishes and tiramisu to finish it up dinner. All wonderful!

Good food! Good pizza! We sat outside, which unfortunately is facing a parking lot. Inside of the restaurant was noisy! Maybe it was full of Italians!

we love sitting outside at this restaurant but frequently the staff who seats you does not notify your server so you sit there waiting- when you are hungry it seems like forever. The food is excellent- love the veal. I am so in love with veal saltimbocca- I order it nearly every time I am there. Love the fact they have gluten free pasta! They are heads above Mimmos or Mama Clemenzas. Since we are full time residents in Destin- we go there a lot. Thanks for keeping up great food- we know you have a hard time finding servers- everyone does! I hope you don't keep raising your prices- we were a bit shocked last night with the price increase.

Our server was nice and the bread to start was delicious. The manager was scolding the bussing staff on the floor and the food was mediocre for the cost.

Great find in Destin. Italian food was spot on. Wonderful bread and dipping oil/spices. Service was fast and efficient. Only complaint was a little loud for my taste.

Some of the best Italian food I’ve had in a while. Great experience all around. The patio is a bit noisy facing the parking lot but they do their best to make it cozy.

We ate outside. Had to remind our waiter 3x about ice for my water. The food is excellent. The service is ok- but that’s the way everywhere is these days! This place far exceeds Mimmos and Mama Clemenza both of which have deteriorated with food and service over the past 6 months. We eat at Pazzo’s often and love it!!!

The food and service were wonderful! We ordered the foccacia (although they give you bread with a very flavorful olive oil garlic/herb dip) which was wonderful. We had the lasagna and fettuccine bolognese. Both were excellent!

I like the ambiance of this place, but felt our food was average. Ceasar salad didn’t have much flavor. Bolognese Omer fettuccine was ok, nothing special. Chicken Marsala didn’t have a lot of taste, chicken was over cooked. Pazzo salad was very good. Hate to say it but there are many better options for Italian in Destin.

Last year we dined in the tent outside and loved our food and the atmosphere. This year we didn’t like the lasagna or the special: seafood angel hair. The lasagna was drowning in sauce and the special was bland. We were a little disappointed. Wish we had ordered pizza.
