I used to love Pazzo - every bite was a trip to Italy. It's still good, but it seems to have slipped a bit. The best offerings on our latest visit were the Caesar salad and the rigatoni with meat sauce. However, the spaghetti with...More

Enjoyed both lunch and dinner here during a great Portland jaunt. Had the crab & avocado sandwich for lunch and pasta with mushrooms for dinner. Got a great table right next to the huge windows looking out onto the street. Fun people watching.

Been to Pazzo a couple times and both times we had no trouble getting in. It seems that the place isn't widely recognized. Pazzo is situated between a number of hotels and maybe the idea of "Italian" food isn't appealing but folks are missing out....More

We were looking forward to a nice night out. It's been a few years since we have been to Pazzos. My wife had the halibut and it was good. I had the Lamb cheeks and the had no flavor. The whole dish was poorly thought...More

We arrived quite late at the hotel where Pazzo is located (Hotel Kimpton Vintage). Staff accommodated us quickly and mad no effort to rush us - even though we were near closng time. We felt valued and pampered

Pazzo was in the same location as the Hotel Vintage Park where we stayed. One night we stopped to enjoy some pizza with my grandson. Pizza and the service was great!

After walking around downtown looking for a place to have breakfast, we were fortunate to find Pazzo's. The coffee was good, and the brunch items were some of the best we've ever had. The chicken sausage was moist, tender and flavorful, the rosemary roasted potatoes...More
