Excellent service, food and ambiance at Pazzo’s. Can’t believe we just took the opportunity to experience this fine restaurant. Was a pleasure to dine away from/outside of the typical vacationers crowd. We will definitely be back. Can’t wait to try the pizza.

The. Read was great. The salads huge, though one was incorrect, it the main courses left much to be desired. The chicken on the chicken Caesar Salad was over cooked as was all of the seafood, what little there was, in the pasta pescatore.

The staff were very nice and the food was good. Unfortunately the service was average at best. Our drinks were not refilled. We asked the waiter for refills which never came.

I know there is a shortage of staff in the area and hope this was a result of the staff shortage.

As most (I assume) we’re in the area for vacation. We’re staying relatively close but wanted to get away from the Destin/Sandestin area, but still wanted quality food and came across Pazza. Everything was super convenient with several times available. Our table was ready when we arrived and even though they were very busy, service was great. We received our appetizers and meal very quickly. Highly recommend

We had a party of five and we were all very happy with our meal. The portion sizes are large. 3 of us had food to take home for the next day. The salads and the pastas are very fresh. Also, if you like Sangria, try a glass here. It is very good!

We were vacationing and looking for a good restaurant that could seat our party of seven before our photography appointment. Using Open Table, we were able to squeeze in and, wow! We were glad we did! From the bread knots to the various dishes we selected, the quality of service and food was phenomenal! Our waitress was very attentive to all our needs, keeping our drinks filled and quietly making sure we were pleased with our meal. Just an exceptional experience! Definitely a place to remember!

We love the restaurant and have eaten there several times. but this time we were rushed to order and finish our meal to turn the table. We are locals and it is hard sometimes to go out without having to wait to get in to a restaurant. You can do better!

Great place for a date night or family dinner. Really loved the ambience of the place. Was a little pricey, but portions were fairly large. The Lavender Gin and Tonic cocktail was delicious and highly recommended! We will go back again next time we’re in Destin.
