We had a large group at two tables and to a person everybody thought their dish was the best of all. There was homemade pasta (Fidelini) with crab meat, lobster and shrimp; veal piccata; soup; tortelloni, I can go on and on. They also did a great job with the grouper and the Seabass. Jamie and Christy took great care... More

I made Open Table reservations for a party of 4 for 5:00 pm. When we were seated, the waiter only gave us regular menus. When I told him we were interested in the early bird dinner specials, he told us we could not have the early dinner special because we had to call the corporate office to request it. We... More

There is no compromising when you dine at Pazzo's and require gluten free items on the menu. They have a separate menu which includes two pasta dishes. I chose the angel hair pasta with shrimp and fresh mozzarella and it was delicious. My dinner companions both had fantastic meals. They did not need to order anything gluten free and had... More

Returned to Paxton for the first time in 3 years and it was superb. There were 4 of us and each had different dishes including ravioli arribiata, veal Marsala over mushrooms and linguini, broiled salmon and penne with shrimp(doubled an appetizer portion) in a citrus sauce. Caesar salad is big enough to split for two and is called a romaine... More

I made Open Table reservations party of 4 for yesterday at 5:00 pm. I called the restaurant to ask when the early dining ended and she told me we had to be seated by 5:15. Never did she mention I had to actually say" we wanted early dining". This does not make sense to me. Unfortunately, we were 1/2 hour... More

Reservation is highly recommended in-season for the Wine & Dine (early dining) deal. Two entrees and a bottle of wine for $18.50 pp, up to 5:30 pm. Papardelle with wild boar bolognese was excellent, as was a shrimp w/ penne dish. Great bread for dipping and friendly enthusiastic service (thanks, Will!).
