Pazzo is located near the middle of downtown Portland. Our food was good to very good but not excellent. Our wines were very good and we stayed away from some wines that had sky-high prices. Our server was great. The noise level made conversation difficult...More

The food & the service was great. The fare is more towards Northern Italian, but you can find more typical Italian dishes if you are looking for them. It is worth the trip if you are in Portland.

The food and service were top notch however for what you got it seemed a bit expensive. Also the menu was a bit scattered I was a little unsure what to order because they had a little bit of everything.
