We have been visiting the Naples area for years but never ate here before. Now it is one of our favorite restaurants in town. My boyfriend said it was the best gluten-free pasta he has ever had. I have a lot of food allergies which sharply limits how food can be prepared for me. The chef here let the excellent... More

I usually avoid Italian restaurants - not because I don't love the food, which I do, but because I am on a gluten-free diet (doc's orders) and it kills me not to be able to have the pasta. And then watch others enjoying it! But friends chose this place so I went and as usual I checked out the menu... More

My mother, father and I went to Pazzo the night of the 25 of March. The place look crowded and nice, but we were shocked. We were told to wait for 10 minutes... Oh we were wrong... 35 minutes. No apology was made by the hostess which added to the anger. Once we sat down, along with the trend it... More

Had been to this Italian eatery several years ago, and thought it ho-hum; not bad, not great. Favored Tulia on same street. However, T's menu is a bit strange (pigs ears, etc) and limited. So if you're looking for typical Italian dishes and lots of choices, it's not enough of what you wish. So decided to take our party of... More

This is a fun italian place right in the middle of Olde Naples on the main drag - 5th St. They have great outdoor tables and the food is good. However, like another reviewer said recently, the service is not good and really detracts from the experience. Our server was just phoning it in.

Had not been here for many years but remembered it as special so we went back. Still a great restaurant! I had linguine with clams. Very garlicky and a little kick with lots of fresh clams!!! Light sauce. Others ordered veal piccata and shrimp fra diavalo. Veal could have a little more lemon flavor. Pasta that came with was excellent.... More

We had a good meal here...the staff were rushed but helpful. Had a bit of a wait despite reservation. One of us has a serious allergy and she was brought the wrong salad first which could have been a disaster...was rectified with apologies. Salads were very good. Pork chop very good.

We decided to go here because of all the good reviews. I have to say I will not go again. None of the meals were served hot and the food was not prepared as described.
