Probably the best Italian resturant in La Jolla and it could more than hold its own in Little Italy. Meals are made to order and the owner Seto, is more than willing to adjust a dish if there is an item you which add or delete so just ask. I had a scallops special in a safron sauce which was the best ever and my wife's chicken was superb. Very relaxing with seating both inside and outside. If you like Italian food this is the place.

The front desk of our hotel recommended Bistro Pazzo for wonderful food at reasonable prices, which is not all that common in La Jolla. This is a little gem of a restaurant. Although it is quite small there is ample seating indoors as well as outdoors, and even a few seats at their bar area. The tables and chairs are very comfortable and the decor is warm and welcoming.
Service was prompt and delightful. The wine selection is very nice but the food is the real star. My husband and I both ordered pasta and meatballs. They were all beef, moist and extremely flavorful.
You may walk past this restaurant without noticing it. But you would be missing out on one of the best places to eat in La Jolla.
The next time we visit this city, we will most certainly return to Bistro Pazzo!

We found this place on trip advisor and are very glad that we did. The owner, Seto, was our server on the first night and is delightful to chat with. His daughter was the server on our second visit the next night and was equally charming. (Yes we went two nights in a row ! It was that good! I had the seared scallops with a very tasty pasta with cream and saffron sauce both nights. It was amazing! The wife had lobster ravioli which was excellent. They have a decent Italian wine selection and the focacia bread is the best. (From a bakery in New Jersey ) . We just might take a trip to La jolla to enjoy the food and great service at this place. By far the best Italian food in La Jolla and maybe anywhere. We will return.

We shared a salad, pasta and dessert. Everything was great! So was the service.
Must try it! They have both indoor and outdoor seating.

The food here is as good as you hope it will be. The owner was kind and you could taste the love he and the rest of the people there have for the restaurant. Authentic and delicious. I had a party of four and all of us liked what we got. If I lived around here I would go far more often.
