We made reservations for lunch before seeing a 2pm play. Thank goodness we had reservations! Food was wonderful. Antipasti platter was very well done with many unique items. Gnocchi was homemade and delicious. Thin crust pizza was excellent. Would definitely go again.

Italian food should be really really good. Fresh and indulgent, well spiced, lovely cheeses... Pazzo was just big old okay and the cocktails were lacking. Pretty expensive for both the quality and quantity.

My wife and I visited the Taverna this evening to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Pazzo's (downstairs) is my wife's favourite restaurant in town and this evening we thought we'd go all out and enjoy the upstairs dining. We were NOT disappointed. Everything was perfect....More
