We really enjoy Pazzo's, but our main complaint is the service is so sporadic. Sometimes good, sometimes bad. No consistency.

Came to Pazzo for New Year's Eve pre-concert dinner with a 6:30 reservation. We arrived early and they immediately sat us. We were in no rush because the concert didn't start until 9 and the theater was a few blocks away. Drinks came. We ordered a clam pie for an appetizer and two main courses and a bottle of wine. When the clam pie arrived, so did the two entrees. We immediately sent them back and summoned the waiter and told him what happened. He said it was his fault and that he would get yelled at by the kitchen. He assured us that things would get better -- WRONG! Just as we had finished about half of the appetizer and were still eating, the entrees arrived again. Once again had to summon the waiter and this time he said it was the kitchen's fault. At this point, we had only been in the restaurant for 45 minutes and it was not full, so we could not understand why the rush. I told the waiter that I did not want to see the entrees again until I told him that we were ready for them. I also reiterated that we were in no rush and did not plan on leaving the restaurant before 8:30. Fortunately, there were no more glitches and the meal was good. We noticed, however, as tables began to fill in around us, that by 8:00 PM, service staff was telling diners that they were already sold out of the lobster special for the evening. Pazzo's proximity to the Count Basie Theater gives it an advantage for filling up tables. We have been there before and although the food is good and the portions more than, there was always something about the service that was lacking.

I really like Pazzo, we went early (3:45) on NYE meal was great as usual. One thing I was a bit disappointed with was even though they were empty inside we were sat out in the sidewalk tent. You might think we froze but it was the opposite- the overhead heat lamps were so intense it was a little unpleasant. Food here is always amazing!

The food is consistently delicious. I have always had great service here, and they have been very accommodating when bringing our 9 month old to dine with us. I highly recommend this place for good, solid Italian dishes.

Very noisy. Too crowded. Service staff tried to provide good service but the restaurant was too crowded. Food delivered was different than the description in the menu.

Our table was by the door and it was very cold every time the door opened.

We visit Pazzo probably 7 or 8 times a year and I see they are falling into a trap as once described by the great Yogi Berra, "it is too crowded, no one goes there any more"

This was our first visit to Pazzo. Food was outstanding as was the service offered by Justin our waiter. We did dine in early (6:00 PM) but the place really got going and very busy around (7:00 PM). We live in Naples Florida but have family here in New Jersey. We do visit our family and friends up in NJ about 4 times a year and will be returning to Pazzo in Red Bank for sure.

We where in town meeting friends for dinner before heading to Count Basie to see a show. The restaurant and the staff is aware of that fact and keeps an eye on the time for you so you’re not late for the show. The service is great. The food is great. The convenience of parking your car in the building attached to the restaurant is super easy. And, the theater had a jitney running back and forth from the restaurant to the theater at a very reasonable price. It’s a very nice addition to the evening.

Dined here again tonight. As usual it was lively and nice. They have found a good combination of casual and romantic. You can go to Pazzo for a business dinner, for a date, with friends and even with well behaved kids (not with little monsters).
As usual the employees who we've met before stopped by our table for a quick chat and friendly hello. Our waitress was a little... something, maybe stressed, tired or otherwise slightly grumpy. When I ordered the SPAGHETTINI she didn't understand me. After three attempts, she asked me to point it out on the menu and said "Oh the spaghetti funghi". I thought I must have read the menu wrong so when I got home I looked online and it really is SPAGHETTINI. I'm not writing that in caps, I copied / pasted from the menu.
The waitress offered us grated cheese and pepper. Neither were fresh ground. The cheese was in a bowl and probably came from the green can. The pepper was typical black pepper in a glass shaker.
I like this place, the people who work there and the food. I've been there before and I'm sure I'll go back, they just aren't very refined.

The menu had what may be a new item, shrimp oreganata. I didnt have that but it sounded delicious and I'm still thinking about it. Maybe next time...
The last time or two that we went there, there was a manager roaming around the room like a shark. He apparently wasn't there

This was our first time trying Pazzo’s. We just moved to the area. We were very impressed. The food was awesome and our waitress was wonderful , friendly and always smiling. It was a pleasure. It was very loud so we made our next reservation for the patio area. Can’t wait! Can’t say enough about the food!

I've eaten dinner many times at Pazzo. This was the first time I had lunch & it was WONDERFUL! I had a Christmas lunch with two good friends. The food was the usual - Awesome! Our waitress was great - she understood right away that we were three old ladies catching up & gave us plenty of time & space.

The food ranges from average to good based on what you select. Experience at the reception area is always a mess for some reason but table service is good. The positives are the parking deck attached to the building, kids menu is large, enclosed outdoor seating is spacious, and the restaurant can accommodate large parties. Give it a try to see if it meets your expectations and needs.

The food at Pazzo is generally very good (we've been there many times); tonight, I had the Zucchini Rolls appetizer - very tasty; they would have been MUCH better, though, if served hot. I suspect it was intended as a hot appetizer, but they arrived lukewarm, and cooled quickly on the cold plate upon which they were presented. The Veal Milanese (on the bone) was very good, some bites were exquisite, others a little chewy/gristly; better quality veal would go a long way here. My companion had the Pappardelle Bolognese, her favorite go-to at this restaurant. As usual, it was excellent, the best Pasta Bolognese she's ever had at any of our shore restaurants.
