Very good bar. Delicious, fresh oysters. Ok salad and pasta; huge chocolate cake.
We’ll be back to try other dishes. Staff is young and inexperienced, but very well meaning.

When you approach, the valet stares at you instead of greeting you. When you have to approach the valet to park your car, it doesn’t get better.

The staff is friendly. The wine was outstanding. The food was subpar.

The waiter had no personality so he came off rude, he forgot about us (party of 3) when two other parties got there so it took forever to get our bill. He looked like he didn’t want to be there. One of the hostess was great and kind and dressed sexy but appropriate. The others dressed a little “skanky” if you will. Since this is a new place I would think they’d be on their A game but it was just ok. This is sad because the food was actually tasty.

Poor service... got the wrong wine then the wrong food. The waitress never apologized and looked annoyed...We ordered 6 different dishes, most were just ok. I do not recommend the lasagna (dry, overcooked and not sure what kind of "meat" was in that...). Ambiance is ok. Ended up going somewhere else for deserts.

It was definitely noticeable that the restaurant had only been open two weeks. Service and food was less than average but hopefully that was because everything is still new. After having had a few issues with the food, the manager came out to talk to us and explained the situation. Most likely we won’t be dining here again but maybe drinks at the bar after the grand opening.

This is a new place in Uptown Dallas. It reminds me of the places you go to in New York City and Las Vegas with a great restaurant and a very elegant lounge. It is a place with a lot of energy, so don't expect a quiet candlelight dinner for two. The other people dining there with us were having a great time celebrating birthdays.
They have great craft cocktails and the food is very upscale and very well done. I highly recommend the crispy polenta cakes and the burrata as an appetizer followed by either the Caesar or "the vinegary one" salads. For the main course both the "Crispy Piece of the Lasagna" and the "Roasted Porchetta Chop" were excellent. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Panwaffle Smore finished the meal in a very tasty and creative manner.
The Pazzo Uptown bartenders had an array of their craft cocktails on display (see picture) and I can personally recommend the "skinny margaritas". The lounge is beautiful and lights and huge LED screen behind the DJ are impressive. I believe that Pazzo Uptown is going to be very popular.

The service was below par for a restaurant that was not that busy, so having the ask the server for the same glass of wine 3 times was unacceptable. I might could get over the poor service but the noise level of the music they were playing was ridiculous! Its a restaurant not a night club, so having to scream at my dinner guest so they could hear me over the music is why I will not return to this restaurant nor recommend it to any of my friends.

Arrived on time for our reservation of 2. The restaurant was mostly empty with a few diners only. We were taken to the furthest table away in front of the restrooms, but requested another seat. We shared calamari that was dry and not served with any sauce. We then received our entrees, 2 pasta dishes that were cold and extremely small. And these were the large options. We informed the waitress who offered no suggestion. Instead of complain we took our entrees home and warmed them in the microwave. The service is poor. The noise level is high. They have the largest TV screen that I have ever seen that takes up and entire wall. The drinks are very expensive. And the food is cold. Not a good experience. We won't go there again.

Keep in mind I ate here at 10pm. The food was decent, the waitress attentive. But this place turns into a neighborhood sports bar this late in the evening.

Not what we expected, but a good restaurant. Very young crowd, hip scene, female wait staff seductively dressed. Not precisely what I though from the Italian menu, but the food was interesting and unique. Fun twists on classics. Very good cocktail menu. Excellent service.

While food and service was very good we weren’t thrilled with attire of waitresses. I get they own club next door but keep club attire in club. Went 2 times and even the guys commented on attire.

I love this place! I’ve been here a few times since they’ve opened and it’s my new favorite spot. I highly recommend the homemade ricotta appetizer, meatballs, the vinegary one salad, and you can’t go wrong with any of the pastas or pies. Great service, drinks and atmosphere. I’ll be back very soon!

Went in for dinner, it was great! Music was perfect level, had a relaxed atmosphere but with a fun DJ twist . We were surprised after dinner there was a secret lounge that opened! We went by for a few cocktails and ended up staying all night! Haven’t seen anything like this before in dallas. We will be coming back for sure!

Great experience at Pazzo Uptown! Everything from the food (lasagna and homemade ricotta) to the craft cocktails (skinny margarita) to the atmosphere were great. It reminded me a lot of LAVO or TAO in New York -- great food, great atmosphere, and everything you need to have a good time under one roof. Will definitely be back.

This place just opened last week and let me tell you. I think I found my new favorite place. The food was outstanding!!!! I had the ricotta made fresh in house. The meatballs were also amazing. Our server Johnny was very knowledgeable about the menu. The decor was very unique and unlike any other place I’ve seen in Dallas. From what I understand they also have a lounge attached to the restaurant that opens up in Friday’s and Saturday nights. I took a peak in there and it looks beautiful. Can’t wait to come back this weekend.

We arrived for our reservation at 7. There were about four people total dining in the restaurant, however we were seated right next to the kitchen in the corner of the entire restaurant. It took a good 15 minutes for a waitress to even notice us sitting there and take our drink order. Once we ordered, it took another 15-20 minutes to actually get one glass of wine and a mixed drink. Our waitress kept disappearing so we were unable to flag her down to order apps, but finally did and ordered the baked bread and the meatballs.
After waiting for 30 minutes with no check in, only one app appeared with no mention on the other app. The meatballs were cold on the inside. So we ordered our mains, still not sign of the second app. Our mains came slowly (mind you we are about 1.5 hours into the dinner at this point), lasagna and Brussels sprouts, and we cancelled the second app because the wait was ridiculous. The lasagna was flavorless and cold on the inside, like they had warmed it up in the microwave. The Brussels sprouts were the only thing I ate the entire dinner and we asked for the check.
Out of no where, the kitchen brings out bruschetta and garlic knots “on the house” for the inconvenience of the apps. I thought that was really nice, UNTIL ONE OF THE OTHER WAITERS TOOK IT OFF OF OUR TABLE SAYING “THAT’S NOT FOR YOU.” We literally ATE parts of it and watched them put it down on ANOTHER table. At this point, it was comical.
THEN, they bring out the baked bread app...when they had already cleared our table AND asked for the check. We said we didn’t want it, but they set it down anyway. The manager must have noticed we were not happy and came over to ask us about our meal. We kindly said that it really wasn’t a great experience and he ended up comping the entire meal.
Good thing, because we literally picked up food on the way home.....needless to say we won’t be back.
