    Martinis were bad and food was good but served in red plastic baskets? It was very odd. I would try this again but steer very clear of martinis as they tasted like rubbing alcohol and gasoline

    Everything was excellent, the wine, the meals, the ambience. Emma is the perfect waitperson. She's friendly, accommodating, efficient and very helpful. Our apps, entrees, and desserts were delicious One note, this was a Sunday evening, and there was a DJ left from the earlier brunch, who was playing very loud latin music, making it very difficult to carry on any conversation. Luckily, it ended shortly after we arrived, thanks to a little help from Emma. The rest of the night was perfect.

    Gets busy so definitely get a reservation! Food was awesome, the Buffalo wings were surprisingly great considering I wouldn’t expect to get those here. Huge portions and delicious. Great for a date night or an evening out with friends. Feels homey with the TVs playing but also a great menu and delicious cocktails. Get the caprese cocktail so good.

    My meal was good but was on the colder side. I think they were busier than anticipated, so the service was a little slow. In addition, there was a DJ which I felt was overkill for brunch and had to talk very loudly to hold a conversation. I would consider going back, I think it was just an off day.

    This was my second time at Pazza and I enjoyed it just as much as my first visit. The waitstaff was very accommodating and attentive. We shared some yummy appetizers followed by our entrees. Three of us had the lollipop lamb chops that were tasty and tender. One guest had the seafood risotto and loved it. The other had a salad. We will definitely return!

    Pasta was all over cooked, almost “gummy”. Server was very friendly and nice but very inattentive, disappearing for 15-25 minutes at a time. Which was shocking considering the restaurant was mostly empty.

    Family event. The service was friendly and accommodating. Appetizers were fabulous. We had the octopus and the burrata. The pasta was disappointing. It was over cooked. The risotto with the lamb had little taste, though the lamb chops were perfectly cooked and delicious.

    We went on $10 pasta night. You get what you pay for. All the desserts were delicious. Highly recommend the pistachio ricotta cheesecake. I would be willing to go back and order from the regular menu. The service was outstanding. One $10 pasta, one drink and one dessert each for three people totaled $121 without the tip.

    2nd time here - Unfortunately not so great an experience. We waited exactly “1 hour” for the appetizers to arrive. Our waitress kept telling us she was sorry and there was nothing she could do. She did not come to update us until we had to ask where they were. When the appetizers came out she then brought the bread. We had to ask for olive oil as it was not brought with it. Very discombobulated out on the patio Saturday night. Ordered chicken parm but received the thinnest piece of paper chicken cutlet I have ever seen, very overcooked (bread crumb coating almost black). My friends chicken cut looked better but was also over fried … Lastly my friend ordered a glass of wine when the food came and she forgot to bring it telling us later that the bar was crowded. Unbelievable. This experience did not happen to us the first time, so I’m hoping it was an anomaly. Yikes.

    I’ve been there before and loved it. Not so much this time. My cocktail order was wrong but not a big problem. My main course was wrong but they did correct it. Asked for bread and oil. It came after asking again with desert. The servings were much smaller than my last visit. We still tipped get 20% which was generous due to the service. I know Covid is effecting everything I will not be rushing back. There were 5 of us. 2 children. $3.00 for a child’s lemonade. Terrible in my opinion.

    We got the fried olive app, and it was great. Very strong olive flavor that is evened out the caciocavallo cheese dip, that I would have eaten as a soup it was so good! My husband ordered the ribeye, which he said was good. It comes with potato puree which was very bland and about 3 pieces of spinach that were super garlicky. I had the lamb lollipops that were good, served over a saffron and parmesan risotto. The risotto was a little hard, didn't have the smooth feel I was looking for in a risotto. It felt more like a clumpy rice, but the flavor was great. We had the pistachio and ricotta cake, which was fantastic! Our server was great, super knowledgeable and helpful. It is a small place, so it is difficult not to hear other people's conversations around you, but overall the restaurant is clean and inviting.
