Pazzo Italiano Santa Rosa Beach
Food was amazing. Best pizza I have ever eaten.
We were very pleasantly surprised!! I had the special for the evening and it was outstanding! My toddlers spaghetti and meatballs was even note worthy. Will definitely return the next time we’re in town on vacation!
First time to try & it was delicious- very fresh & great flavor- nice portions. Will definitely return on our next visit to Santa Rosa Beach/Destin area.
Again we had a wonderful family dinner and drinks. Always the owner is very friendly when we arrive and greets us like family. Servers are quick with water and bread while we decide what to eat. Waitress with a trainee were a little delayed from a large table finishing up, however spoke to us as we sat down that they would be a moment. Gave us a moment to decide what we wanted. My husband and I LOVE the signature PAZZO Martini and have it on every visit. We all enjoyed pasta on this visit, and the salads and pizza are delicious also! We are becoming regular weekly patrons!! As locals, we enjoy the ease of being able to reserve a table during the busy periods. See you next week!
Table ready on time , waitress was great and food was very good. Will be back.
Food was excellent and a great value. The noise was surprisingly low. Great for families.
Excellent service. Staff was polite. Some of the best Italian food I’ve had.
Very nice to have gluten free pasta as well
The food was delicious and the service was fantastic. I had a seafood pasta that was amazing, and my wife had lobster ravioli which she said was excellent. We will definitely be returning
We’re visiting our daughter who lives here and she recommended Pazzo. We’re an Italian family so our standards are high. I ordered the caprese rigatoni, and my first bite felt like a celebration in my mouth. So so delicious! Then my daughter shared some of her chicken picatta with me, (my favorite) and it was one of the best I have ever tasted. The bread was good—better when it was hot. Entrees were pricy, and did not come with salad, which was a disappointment. I ordered a glass of the cheapest Chardonnay ($11) and it was mediocre. So because of those downsides, I would give this restaurant four stars instead of five. Oh! One more thing! Our reservation was for outside dining because according to Open Table that was all that was available. As we walked in, it was looking like it was going to storm, but the maitre ‘d seated us inside immediately so that was awesome. Good thing he did because it stormed throughout dinner and on the way home.
We eat out with a family of 10, 2 we’re kids and had a great time. Food was decent proportion and space was very industrial.
We always love dining at Pazzo! Food and service are wonderful!
Honestly, there is nothing to complain about. What we ordered was very good but at the same time three items may or may not be reflective of the entire menu. Time and repeated visits will resolve that issue one way or the other.
Great place. Food is excellent
Excellent food, this place never disappoints. Wait staff very attentive. Love this restaurant.
Great service. Bread provided right away. Small salads are big. Great chicken Marsala and Picatta.
Service was great and the food was delicious. The bruschetta was a tad bit soggy but other than that everything was amazing! I got the special of the day which was parmesan crusted grouper with risotto in a tomato sauce.. and OMG was that good. Definitely recommend this place!
Excellent food and service, something for everyone in our party!
Best iItalian around. The portion are very genius . We will be back again.
Exceptional as usual… waitress was attentive and timely in her handling of our table. Food was outstanding …
Service was quick and attentive. Food was piping hot and exactly as described and delicious. Will definitely return!
We were thankful to be able to secure a reservation for our party of 10 during a very busy time on 30A! Our waitress was friendly and very helpful and we all enjoyed our entrees - the sauce on my spaghetti bolognese had great flavor.
We have been a bunch .. food is great and service is pretty good
But seats are hard as concrete so when we don’t get a booth it is miserable
Such a small thing
Maybe a booth seating request on opentable would help so if unavailable we can book elsewhere
Our waitress was excellent. The Stromboli was very good. Chicken piccata Was average. Overall, great place.
Absolutely exceeded our expectations. Great service, fabulous food!! We will be back often.
We had a new waiter and he was fabulous. Must have had good training. Pizza was fabulous as always. My husband had the
Special of the day. I believe it was Grouper. He loved it. I had the Veal Parm. It was fabulous.
Fabulous as always!!!
Made reservations on open table. Upon arrival host was terse and not friendly. We sat and waited while others were seated before us that came in after our party. Food was excellent, high quality, delicious. Service was marginal as we asked for a few items which were not delivered until we requested from a different server. Would definitely try again due to great food!!
The food is really good. This is our go to restaurant when we are in town.
We had reservations but arrived early and they were kind enough to seat us. Service, food selection as well as wine and drink selections were good. Hard to rank as it was my 1st time there. The meal was large in portions and good, but not over the top, hence the 4 rating. Did not have pizza, but the firestone pizza looked very good. So many items, I would to try something different next time.
Excellent food, fast and friendly service, great atmosphere!
We’ve heard that Pazzo in Destin is great but we were not impressed with the food. It’s a nicely decorated restaurant and the service was exceptional. However, we won’t try it again even though we live less than 15 minutes away.
Food was outstanding!!!
Happy to find a place to accommodate our large party (15 people) on short notice. Food and service were good enough.
Incredibly good food and service
Great pizza, pasta and service!
Excellent food! I loved the rosemary infused lemon drop martini.
Food and service were all very good although a little overpriced, seems common in this area. The only negative was that when arrived for our reservation on time we still had to wait nearly 20 mins for a table despite getting a confirmation text that our 'table was ready' at the time of our reservation.
We came with our family of 21 for a reunion dinner. They were very accommodating and the food was excellent. The server was good but could use a little more energy. She was good up to delivering our food then she was no where to be found.
