Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was craving for something simple, ordered the Spaghetti AOP and asked for chicken to be added. Delicious dish, 5 or 6oz of pasta (I believe) was satisfying but a bit pricey. An early dinner before 6pm paid off as the restaurant got busy within the hour or so that I was there.

Coco Pazzo has reached new heights of excellence. Chef Federico is turning out pure Tuscan cooking with amazing flavors, without heaviness or richness. The pastas, always a strong point, are now joined by pizza, salads, and delicious meats and fish. The setting remains fresh and inviting. This may be the best Italian in the country. It is certainly the best... More

We had dinner last night (family of 3 traveling for pleasure). The staff gave wonderful service, had a fairly extensive Italian wine list, and had wonderful homemade pastas. Would definitely return!

The pizza is just like if you were in Italy, so fresh and authentic. In fact, every dish we order is delicious. And the staff is so friendly every time we go there.

Outstanding dinner! The octopus appetizer was tender and quite hearty and my liguini with Manila clams was perfecto. My wife started with the chicken liver pate "very tasty" and the shaved artichoke salad which she highly recommends. Her branzino alfforno entree was top shelf, rivaling our favorite dish at Tocco. The service was excellent. The bill with two Titos martinis... More

This somewhat pricey but excellent Italian eatery serves up first rate dishes from top to bottom. Daily specials add even more appeal. Seafood is fresh and the pastas are handmade with semolina flour. Authentic Italian taste. An excellent wine list, too, but again, a bit on the pricey side. This is a great place for those with expense accounts or... More

This years choice for Restaurant Week. First impressions were great. A loft like interior with brick walls, exposed ductwork and large flowing curtains dividing the room into smaller grouping. We were warming greeted and shown to a table right away. Our waiter was wonderful and explained everything. The first course was a mushroom and kale terrine type, very good and... More

There are some places that are very expensive and worth every penny...this might have been in that category once; depends on what you're looking for, but I wouldn't put it there now. On the night of Super Bowl Sunday, at least, service was impeccable--yes, it wasn't busy, but the staff knew their stuff. Some of the dishes we had were... More

We had lunch here, taking advantage of the 3 course restaurant week deal. Our lunch began with a generous serving of ribollita, a Tuscan vegetable soup, served with a lightly toasted slice of Italian bread. It was packed with vegetables and had an outstanding broth. Our main courses were rigatoni alla buttera and pizza alla diavolo. The rigatoni came with... More
