My wife and I were seeking the most authentic Italian restaurant we could find in Naples. Our hotel shuttle dropped us on 5th Ave. so our search was confined to walking distance. We chose Pazzo because they had wild boar on the menu. I am measuring this meal against our last trip to Italy last year. This was by far... More

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Naples. Certainly my favorite Italian restaurant. It has real table cloths, a lovely interior and a very good menu. In addition, their pricing is reasonable, particularly for early birds. The bar is excellent and the service is good.

This is a wonderful spot for a guaranteed nice dinner. Service is spot on from the moment you arrive. We had calamari-the pieces were large and were not heavily breaded. The Caesar was dressed well and the melon and prosciutto salad was very nice. Had the wild boar pappardelle and the veal piccata. Both were quite good.

We normally avoid "Italian " restaurants in America as their interpretation of this type of cuisine is too far removed from the genuine article! . That said The food was all full flavoured and well presented it is a shame they add unnecessary ingredients to the dishes for effect. The service was excellent , and the atmosphere agreeable.

Excellent service. Lovely ambience. Delicious dinner. We will be back. Needed a bit extra help as our table neighbors were very enthusiastic and my husband wears hearing aids. Mentioned a table change to our server and within minutes the maitre de was at our table and moved us to a more quiet location. Saved our evening.

Reservations made well in advance, attitude by manger patronizing. Have dined here for years, but in midst of busy season the attitude of manager and hostess is deplorable. Need to realize that many of us are here year round and their seasonal attitude is totally different when the "snowbirds" have left. The manager this winter season is inexperienced and inept...

Pazzo has always been among our favorite 5th Avenue Restaurants.
