The food & the service was great. The fare is more towards Northern Italian, but you can find more typical Italian dishes if you are looking for them. It is worth the trip if you are in Portland.

The food and service were top notch however for what you got it seemed a bit expensive. Also the menu was a bit scattered I was a little unsure what to order because they had a little bit of everything.

We spent one night in Portland and selected our dinner spot based on proximity to the hotel where we were staying. When we arrived at the restaurant all tables were full so we sat at the bar and enjoyed a glass of wine (nice selection)....More

Thanks DJ for the great 5 star review of Pazzo. We're pretty proud of our Washington state mussels and the smoked tomato broth we serve it in. Looking forward to having you back soon.

Great pasta but not too many protein options in the menu. Pizza seems to be good and selection of wine also good.

We were looking for the Italian dinner within walking distance from our hotel. We found Pazzo to have a great ambiance. Even without a reservation we were seated promptly. We ordered a bottle of wine from their good cellar list instead of their house selection....More
