My first visit to Pazzo was an unexpected surprise. Went there because other local eateries were providing hour or more waits. While Pazzo was very busy, they still managed to squeeze myself and my work peers in. Our waiter was quick to arrive and take...More

Ate here with my family as it was close to our hotel. They had a variety of pizza and pasta meals that were good, we have no complaints at all. Staff was friendly and attentive. Decent wine selections.

I used to love Pazzo - every bite was a trip to Italy. It's still good, but it seems to have slipped a bit. The best offerings on our latest visit were the Caesar salad and the rigatoni with meat sauce. However, the spaghetti with...More

Enjoyed both lunch and dinner here during a great Portland jaunt. Had the crab & avocado sandwich for lunch and pasta with mushrooms for dinner. Got a great table right next to the huge windows looking out onto the street. Fun people watching.

Been to Pazzo a couple times and both times we had no trouble getting in. It seems that the place isn't widely recognized. Pazzo is situated between a number of hotels and maybe the idea of "Italian" food isn't appealing but folks are missing out....More

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience and we're sorry that you did not enjoy the dish. We typically have had great responses on this preparation on the lamb, but we'll definitely be mindful of this dish going forward....More

We arrived quite late at the hotel where Pazzo is located (Hotel Kimpton Vintage). Staff accommodated us quickly and mad no effort to rush us - even though we were near closng time. We felt valued and pampered
