We have been eating here for over a year weekly and have only had exceptional meals. Whether pizza, pasta, or steaks head on every time. Desserts not to be missed, they're focaccia is delish. Very friendly space, always a group at bar, hardly ever have to wait. Freshly made food, do not miss this place.

We've eaten at Pazzo's for many years and have found it consistently good. From the eat-in or take-out pizza, to the many tasty pasta and other meals in, we will always go here for any couples or small group occasion.

We had an outstanding dinner at this restaurant beginning with the ribbon salad and fig and prosciutto salad. For the main courses you pasta bolognese and pomodoro. We toppe it off with delicious gelatin. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere most pleasant. Definitely a return visit in the near future.

Excellent Italian food in the Southern Village Market Street area. Nice atmosphere. Eat inside or out--we were inside. Kids had pizza at the pizzeria and went down the block for fro-yo while we enjoyed a nice dinner

We dined with a large family group including a 3 year old and were pleased with the service. The little girl's pizza came out very quickly. The rest of us enjoyed several pizzas as well as the rich, but very tasty fettuccine carbonara.

I used to like the pizza at Pazzo. Southern Village is an amazing place. Having a good pizza after a movie is a perfect weekend deal. However, for some time now I've been noticing that the staff has become unfriendly. Moreover, when you ask for slices, they are reheated, burnt, and tasting like rubber. Ordering an entire pizza became the... More

The pizza is thin, hot, fresh, and delicious! To-go salads are fresh, tasty, and accompanied by good-quality dressing.

Ordered the penne pasta and pasta with meatballs. The food was below average tasting. The meatballs were foul tasting. Then 30 minutes after I was finished with dinner, major stomach cramps, ran to the toilet. What a mess. I was food poisoned.

I must admit when I looked-over the menu I was ready to walk-out. The food was fancy and expensive and I needed to be sold. The waitress smiled and complemented my t-shirt (even though everyone else in the joint was dressed for date night) so, my friend and I decided to stay. I had a gigantic Caesar salad with tons...

Think this is turning into, or maybe has been, a little small community restaurant. We ate there last night with another couple. Ordered a small tomato/mozzarella salad (not on menu) which they did, but they charged me $12.00 bucks for it which was 25% higher than other more complex salads. I had pesto and it was fair, bread was stale,... More
