A favorite spot for my family! We always feel welcome when we walk in. Delicious food in a casual atmosphere. Service is good as well! My teenage boys love it - good size portions of yummy Italian favorites! We keep going back!

I am very impressed with Pazzo Pomodoro. The staff was friendly and helpful both at the bar and at the table. Marro (hope I spelled that right) our waiter was great. He knew the menu and wine list and made great recommendations. The menu is honest Italian and it is hard to decide between all the good choices. All three... More

One of the few pizza places that have a wood burning oven. Nice place to go for lunch, dinner or after work. Sometimes it gets very noisy. Lots of plates, pots and pans very close to the tables. They should have some sound absorbing material. Sometimes it is hard to have a conversation.

Pazzo's - as its most frequent guests refer to it as - feels like the neighborhood Italian Restaurant you grew up with. And you're right. It is your favorite local Italian Restaurant right here in Vienna. They really have it figured out. From the small but great bar for a happy hour, evening drink and appetizer or late night last...

The food and menu are very good. The service staff and management are wonderful. This is a very good local restaurant with a good bar area as well. The adjacent gelato parlor is an added benefit.

We love the grilled calamari, mussels, Caesar salad, and pastas. Great comfort food! Gets very crowded at times, but it's casual and everyone is friendly. Convenient and large bar in back also serves food. They also do take-out!

I went to Pazzo with my mom and two friends, one of whom is a Italian and she was the one who mentioned the Sicilian style of food. I had the butternut squash ravioli. It was delicious but I wished I'd been given a few more. My mom had the whole fish she said it was good but a bit... More

Unassuming place; they have their food down pat. No rush. Not too loud. Not too expensive. A large variety of food. Hooray.
