Great Italian food in Santa Rosa Beach Florida. Not real heavy but not light either. the Eggplant parmesan and the Lasagna were both excellent. good service.
Always a great experience. Food is excellent as well as service.
Great food and service.
It’s hard to believe such a quaint, beautiful restaurant like this is hidden in a strip mall! The food was wonderful and the service was great! When one entree came out incorrect it was fixed immediately. We will definitely return!
Everything perfect, the lighting could be better led or make the menu letters a little bigger.
My family and I ate at Pazzo Italiano last year and loved it. We came back during Fall Break this year and it did not disappoint. We brought our friends and had a great time. Great food and a great atmosphere. Just really good Italian food.
Good food and friendly service
We shared the ceasar salad and ordered the special entree grouper over angel hair pasta. The dirty martini's were very good as well as the service. This was our third visit this year and not the last.
Beautiful ambiance, extensive menu, exceptional chicken parmigiana …only wish I had room to try the pizza/ looked amazing! Excellent service too!
What a great Italian restaurant close to where we’re vacationing! Wonderful service and excellent meals. I had the grouper special, which was pricey but delicious! Definitely will be back at least one more time before we fly back home to Texas.
Food was amazing! Service was fantastic. We ordered a margarita pizza for the kids which rivaled our favorite pizza in Atlanta (Antico) we also shared the calamari(which was super light and crispy) and we had two pasta dishes with shrimp. All was excellent! Looking forward to going back the next time we’re in town. Highly recommend this gem!
What a great place for date night with husband! We enjoyed perfect service, delicious food and wine. Love this place (even more than the one in Destin), the staff here is super friendly, very attentive and accommodating.
I always give this restaurant top reviews. Food, drinks, service always very consistent. They will keep you coming back….
First time - exceeded our expectations. Everyone enjoyed their meals and drinks.
Great meal. Great time. Third visit and it does not disappoint.
It was wonderful!!!
Consistent, really good Italian food. Wonderful service and ambiance.
Our experience was incredible for our 30th wedding anniversary. Our server couldn’t have been any better. We will definitely be back. Thank you and God bless!!
We just arrived at the beach, but had made a reservation a few days in advance because we were looking for good pizza. Also, it appeared that the tables at Pazzo were socially-distanced on their website. When we got there, the tables were socially-distanced, so that was a good thing. However, the restaurant had several groups of teenagers who were eating there when we arrived at 7:30. They were extremely loud; some were obnoxious. One young man at a nearby table was coughing and sniffing loudly, in what seemed like a fake way, maybe to scare those of us who were taking precautions. Another young man came and stood right behind my husband while making a phone call--probably to escape the noise-level at his table. Yes, I know kids will be kids; but it was difficult to enjoy the meal with so much going on around us. Also, our server was also the server of the large table holding about 14+ kids. She kept us waiting for our to-go box and for our check because she had such a large group to try to get their individual checks to them and take their cards and then get the cards back to them. I recognize she was dealing with a lot. Just not a good experience for us on our first visit!
Great food and service. As a local, my go-to restaurant!
Service, bar, and food were excellent. Unfortunately we had a table on an aisle that most customers were brought down to get to the other parts of the restaurant. Next time I'll as for a table in the interior or their side room with windows. Definitely looking forward to returning.
Elena was an amazing server! Food was outstanding, we had pasta she pizza, all good!
Live this place favorite place to eat
The food was some of the best Italian I’ve ever had and getting a reservation was a huge bonus!
This has got to be the absolute worst food I have ever had the displeasure of placing in my mouth. Please - do not go here. Save your money. Save your time. Most of all - save your stomach and yourself. When you have to push your food aside, because you feel as though you’re going to be sick from what you’re eating… enough said.
When the issue was brought to the manager’s attention, the answer was “well, no one else has complained, so I don’t know what’s wrong with you.” Ummm, Wow! Not really the expected reply when you are trying to actually help them by saying “I really wouldn’t serve that dish, because there is has got to be something wrong. It was not good at all.”…
Therefore, I write this review in the hopes to save someone else from our apparent mistake in choosing this establishment and wasting a lot of money on food that I wouldn’t serve to an enemy.
(I am not from this area, so I went on reviews from another site, but my goodness - if this is what the locals like, I’m certainly glad I’m just visiting and I pray for their health.)
I hope this was an “off” night, but I believe that’s just an excuse people like to give to avoid being rude.
The service (waitress) wasn’t the problem at all - she was very pleasant. However, not a penny was taken off the bill. This is not something that is expected these days, but another sign of the failure of customer service when everyone at the table left with most, if not all, of their plates intact. (We were a table of 5, by the way.)
You may judge for yourself, but this experience is way more than just ‘not my cup of tea’.
Good food, good service
Enjoyed the food and service. Ambiance was nice and fresh as well.
Best Italian food in Santa Rosa Beach.
It was great!
Great food and wonderful service, fast - efficient. The restaurant is very clean. I can tell the management team is doing an excellent job.
Excellent, food was hot and fresh. Service was great. Love the place.
If you have had pizza in Napoli, you will think you are there.
We decided on an early dinner because we had our son with us.
We order lasagna and the eggplant parm. Both came out very hot, no worries.
The lasagna noodles tasted over cooked because they were very mushy and the eggplant parm consisted of more mozzarella and sauce compared to the eggplant.
Absolutely love the restaurant so I’m gonna chalk this up as only one occasion.
One of our favorite restaurants! Food is great!
Local Italian eatery. We eat here nearly every Saturday evening after attending Mass. The food is good, the drinks are well done (although a bit expensive), and the service is top notch. Make a reservation on the weekend.
Superb restaurant, staff and food!! Would highly recommend.
My group was slightly late for our dinner reservation to celebrate my sister as the bride-to-be. Pazzo Italiano’s hosts were so kind to us, had champagne on the house at the table already, and were just overall exceptional. We had an amazing dinner together on our first night in Florida and I couldn’t recommend this restaurant more.
Always a great experience!!
