    Pazzo is one of our staples in Destin. You can always find great food, good wine and great service. My favorite is calamari fritti as an appetizer and spaghetti pescatore or pizza Alfonso as a main.

    Firstly, the service was amazing! I loved most everything about our experience, however, I ordered the eggplant parmigiana which happened to be $22 but I figured it would be worth it. The eggplant was tough which was disappointing enough but it also came with no pasta. So Instead of sending it back I chose to order a side of pasta, that ended up being an additional $9. So I paid $31 for a mediocre eggplant parmigiana. I guess just don’t order the eggplant if you go, but all my friends loved their food and drinks. The ambiance was lovely and once again, the service was so friendly and efficient. I’d definitely go again but just order something different.

    We are locals and should have known better than to go during spring break season, but the crowds haven't been terrible this year. Even so, this place was full and loud. The server was slow getting to our table...she was trying but overwhelmed. She took our drink order first, and after about 20 mins, came back to take our food order. We still had no drinks. Our food came out about 20-30 mins later and STILL no drinks. We had 3 wine orders and one cocktail. Our drinks finally came out as we were about to finish our entree''. Generally, the food here is good, so maybe best to stick to slower times.

    WE love Pazzo Italiano and wanted to bring some friends visiting from out of town. Unfortunately, our experience this visit wasnt a great as usual. Our server wasnt very attentive and never came back to see if more beverages were wanted or to see if the food was as expected. The lack of detail to service really bothers me since the gratuity was already added to our checks. There was only 6 of us, with 2 being preteens. Just overall disappointed.

    The food was very good. The service was quick and the food was hot. Our table was end-to-end with another group with minimal distance between the tables. It was tooo close. The woman on the end was basically in our conversation and would not stop staring. We would definitely go back but not sit at the tables with that layout.

    Food was average. Ordered eggplant parmigiana and it was somewhat tough and sauce too heavy. Also had mussels with bean’s appetizer and that was good. Prices are very steep even for Destin. This was our second visit with average results. Probably will not return.

    Great first night in Destin! The food is legit and being able to get authentic Italian that has local seafood in it is such a joy. Lovely time. Decent selection of Italian wines by the glass. Made for a very good first night in Destin, since they accepted reservations on a Saturday!
