We are very frequent diners on 5th avenue but the last time we ate at Pazzo was well over 4 years ago. I have celiac and my dinner at that time was very very bland so we didn't return. But, friends made the reservation so I gave it another try and I am so happy I did!! The gluten free... More

Great dinner out with friends. The short ribs were the best by far. Be aware that the vegetarian lasagna has no pasta despite saying homemade pasta in the menu. A bit disappointed. Very nice wine list.

We have eaten at Pazzo before and have always had a very good experience ( food and service). This time was different. Why? because we presented a Naples Original certificate ($50 certificate for which we paid $37). Our waiter Jaime truly looked annoyed when we presented the cert before ordering the meal, and said just leave it on the table.... More

The service left a bit to be desired. We waited for 15 minutes after being seated for anyone to even approach our table. It appears that wait staff switch tables frequently, but if that's the system, it needs improvement. Our server was very kind once he arrived and apologized profusely. A couple seated near us stepped away from their table... More

Stopped here having wondered up and down 5th Avenue as it had nice outside seating and seemed to have a good buzz about the place. The waitress was very polite and friendly, though throughout the meal she was a little over keen and i could have done with less checking that we were ok, but that's personal choice. The bread...

We both had veal dishes which were delightful, preceded by sharing some crispy calamari which was enough for two Brits who tend to eat rather less than our American cousins. Nice wine list too. All in all good value and very good service.
