    We had made a mistake and went to the wrong location. Even though the GM was somewhat rough and there were tables available we were seated by Nicole who was very friendly.

    Ordered the lasagna. It reminded me of my childhood/adolescence and all the Chef-boy Ardee I ate. Pretty much disappointed. The penne A la vodka with shrimp was minimal on the shrimp. Caesar salad and bread was top notch

    We had a large house salad and gluten free pasta with vodka sauce and shrimp. It was enough for us and very tasty. However it was noisy, which was disappointing considering it wasn't crowded.

    Great place to eat, it’s our second time in Destin and I was looking forward to eat here again. Our waitress, the drinks, the food and the ambience was very pleasant. We got the Pazzo Martini and the Pink Ocean drinks with the Margherita Pizza and everything was delicious. We recommend this place to everybody visiting Destin.

    We made a reservation for 6:30 and were seated quickly. We were taken to the back room which was fine until a very large party came in and the noise level intensified which is why I rated the noise level higher. The service was great even when our server got the large party. The food was delicious and the portions were so large we had to take half of it home. Next time in Destin I will be back.

    All was good, but salmon spinach salad, in my opinion, was too oily. The panini my guest ordered was not very appetizing in appearance. He was too polite to say anything but he did not eat much. First time ever experienced less than optimum food at PI. See you next time.

    Our daughter loved the cheese pizza! She said it was the best cheese pizza she’s had and she loved how the cheese was gooey when you lifted up a slice (like commercials). My husband and I liked our meals, though they didn’t “blow us away”. Our server was very nice and helpful. I have celiac disease and she was very knowledgeable about what I could and couldn’t have due to cross contamination. We would definitely go back for a family dinner.

    We’ve eaten here every summer when we come to Destin. This year was off. Food was not as good as it has been, service was rushed and the prices were VERY high. Would love to go back but this experience will likely turn us off from returning.

    Best of the best. Hidden gem in Destin. Easy to make reservations, fast service, great portion sizes and foods on point. Wood fired pizzas are so good. Another fav is the chicken parm. Do not sleep on Pazzo

    I booked a reservation through OpenTable for this place last night can when I arrived they said that they did not have my reservation. I showed them my confirmation but they replied saying they do not have a table reserved for us. It was very confusing and they did not seat us.

    I was not very satisfied with the food selection. I rarely visit this area, but have been to this restaurant before. I ordered chicken parmigiana, but the fryer was down, so because of seafood allergies I opted for pizza. When it arrived, while the bottom was brown, it was not cooked very well throughout. It was mostly meat and cheese and very little sauce. The waitress was very nice and we tipped her well, but doubt I will visit again.
