June 2017 - dining with friends, the special was lasagna. I usually stay away from pasta, but made an exception. Well worth the calories! They do not sell liquor, but will happily open your bottle of vino. Great appetizers and focaccia.

This is a good choice for fresh,( just like Momma made made it) Italian food on Roatan. A smaller restaurant with maybe 25 seats, the service is attentive and friendly. The menu is usually limited to 5-6 choices which makes for easy entree decisions. A good value overall for an original, well run, clean, trattoria style eatery. I can easily recommend Pazzo to any and all. We love it. Reservations recommended.
One tip however - try not to make eye contact with the chef...lol

A small unassuming place. As mentioned by others, reservations are recommended.

You bring your own beer/wine and they serve it without charging a 'corkage' fee. Alcohol is not available for purchase at the restaurant.

I chose one of the daily specials -- a spicy octopus pasta. The pasta was al dente and the octopus was perfectly cooked: succulent and tender. Not a single piece was chewy. I've rarely had octopus cooked as well as this. We ordered a salad which was generously sized without being too large and the greens were very fresh. The other pasta dish we ordered was also good but less memorable than the octopus.

I suggest bug spray -- the restaurant seemed buggier than other places.

If you can go- go! This restaurant had some of the best Italian I've ever had and for a fair dime. And if there's passionfruit pie- get it!
