We had a limited amount of time so we stopped for a pint and pizza for lunch. Had we had more time before our show we would have stayed longer. The food smelled amazing. Our pizza was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend visiting his spot!

We have gone to Pazza's for years when attending the Stratford Theatre & it has ALWAYS been exceptional! Last night in the Taverna was a huge disappointment! While the service & ambience were excellent - our dinners were not! The starter 'grilled calamari salad' tasted...More

After a matinee performance, my husband and I decided to have early dinner at the downstairs Pazzo Taverna. When we arrived, there were many empty tables. Nobody was at the door, so we headed to a table. The host approached us and in a stern...More
