Always VERY dependable. The food is really good Italian. The lunch menu is good and dinner is “go to” place if going to the Basie

This was the first time we were not really pleased with our dinner. My tuna was outstanding as always. The problem was confusion for my wife ordering. Instead of saying Branzino, she said Mediterranean sea bass. She received the Chilean sea bass marechiara. when the food arrived she told me that was not she ordered, the couple at the table across from us overheard her and said the same thing happened to them. Rather then return it my wife tried to eat it. The dish was so fishy tasting she couldn't eat it, I split my tuna with her. While this will not prevent us from coming back, we will be more careful ordering and due to the sea bass being very poor will not order that again.

Delicious dinner as always at Pazzo. Never disappoints! Succulent scallops in a bacon corn relish and meaty crab cakes. Entrees of rigatoni eggplant, linguini with clams, pasta with spicy shrimp and penne vodka all delicious!

Great service too.

We came here for the Fixed price Tuesday’s and it’s a great selection. Delicious! I had calamari, lobster ravioli and toasted almond cake. Will be coming back.

Restaurant’s ambiance reminds you of New York City restaurants.

My husband and I were very impressed with the food and service. Can’t believe we’ve never been here before and come to Red Bank often for shows at the Count Basie. Scrolling through the Play Bill from the last show we attendees is how I found your amazing restaurant. He truly enjoyed celebrating his 65th birthday that night. Thank you for an impressive evening!

We frequent Pazzo with friends and family as our go to. However even though the food was great this past Friday the wait staff was terrible. They brought our salad and appetizer at the same time. The service was rushed and table crowded and uncomfortable Their was also a lot of small fruit fly bugs. The whole ambience was ruined

The food quality left quite a lot to be desired! The Sunday Sauce was very acidic, meatballs had more breadcrumbs than meat, and the pasta was very hard - as if it were just blanched in hot water! There are plenty of quality restaurants in Red Bank, save your money, time, and appetite for a fine quality dining experience!

The waiter Justin was outstanding. The food was great, I especially liked the arugula salad and the food came out in a timely fashion. It took a really long time to clear our plates after the meal so that was a negative for me. I am new to the area and will probably go back but not soon.

It would be nice if you can request to sit in the restaurant instead of the porch area. It is very cold and when they turn off the heat it was uncomfortable. When you ask that they turn it back on they look at you like you are the crazy one. Otherwise it would have been perfect.

With the understanding that many of your clientele are not Italian, the background music should incorporate a bit more Italian classics and arias.

Tante grazie

Love Pazzo! Accommodated a wheelchair accessible table without a problem! Server was wonderful. My only problem was coming into the restaurant 4-5 people at the check in desk and no one helped me with the doors to come into restaurant with the wheelchair.

There were issues in the kitchen that probably set the tone for slow service. Our waiter seemed either inexperienced. He would disappear 15 minutes at time. Finally we cancelled the last appetizer we were waiting for, as we finished the first two brought out 10 mins prior and asked for the pizzas to start cooking. 1 hour and 45 mins for apps and pizza is ridiculous. I don’t think I’ll go back again. 2nd time disappointed here.

Pazzo delivered in all the right categories, food, service and overall experience. This bistro style restaurant is convenient to an inexpensive municipal garage. The specials were creative but recognizable. Burata w crispy noodles and arugula was plenty for two to share. Olives in garlic oil w crusty bread before dinner was a bonus. Wine and cocktail list we're both expansive. Entrees were on point.. and lots of gluten free options to swap out pasta. Although they accepted the order for a special and then twenty minutes later ran out of lobster, the amount of shrimp and clams added (although charged at the specials price) made up for it mostly. Service was professional and efficient and the dining room staff truly worked like a team. I look forward to going back to try dinner at the huge square marble bar. Deuce tables are tight and the bullpen of four tops in front of the kitchen are packed in but the atmosphere is still more dining than eating. Yummy!

Our server, Billy, was so great. We had to wait to be seated even with our reservation but it was worth the wait. Billy gave us his recommendations. We got a bottle of wine, clams for an appetizer, the tuna, and the shrimp oregano dish. It came with complimentary olives and bread so we were too stuffed for dessert. We can’t wait to come back!

delicious dinner. Too noisy this time on the patio. We couldn't have a decent conversation. Our server was nice but not very attentive as others have been in the past. He was ok.
