My friend and I went in here to get some food after a day at the MOMA. We saw the 2 for 1 martinis and decided to try them out; they were delicious and STRONG! Definitely worth it. We got dinner and ended up staying for dessert and wine afterward. Delicious. There was a wait for a table, but we didn't have to wait long. Good service throughout the night. The DJ played fun music. The only thing I didn't like was the one bathroom for the entire restaurant/lounge, which was kind of disgusting. But overall, our experience was enjoyable and we will definitely be going again.

I walked into this place with a group of friends after our Graduation. It turned out to be the place to go. the 2 for 1 martinis are amazing. Be warned, they are very strong. The food, DRINKS, and service were all great. Good looking staff too. Would go back soon.

I have been going to Pazza for about 7yrs, and it just keeps getting better! The thin crust brick oven pizzas have always been great, and in the past few years, the rest of the food continues to excel. Plus, the staff is so great - most have been there for more than five years. Everyone is super friendly. That's why I'm confused by the first review - I have never experienced that in all my years there. Seems like an exaggerated account, plus I'm suspecting they had something to do with the bad vibe -- first, there are two bathrooms, not one (and it is NYC, and many places are short on bathrooms - it's not a restaurant's fault). They do sometimes add gratuity on especially busy nights, or at especially busy times, but it's only 18%, and is listed on the check when they do. Unless you had bad service, I don't know why that would be a problem. (Plus, 101 - you should always read your own check.) As someone who has served, it actually sounds like a bad customer scenario. I have never heard of the manager asking anyone to spend more money. that sounds ridiculous. And if you order something not on the menu, why don't you ask how much it would cost first if you're going to have a problem with it? Better yet, order something that is on the menu. That's why there's a menu. It's what they offer, with the prices clearly listed. I don't know... doesn't make sense to me. Point is, don't write off a really cool place because of what sounds like a disgruntled customer! Pazza is really fun!

The food was pretty good, the martini's are an OK deal. Nice atmosphere with the DJ. Only 1 bathroom though, for a pretty large restaurant. Keep in mind this is midtown, not soho. Another thing to remember here is that they include 18% gratuity. When we paid and the server asked if we needed change, he failed to mention that the tip was already included. So we ended up tipping $40. Despite this, after we paid, we were invisible in the restaurant. The owner came over to change our table paper (making us lift up 4 full drinks) and suggested we spend more money. (our bill was around $120). Classy. I also got gouged for my entree. Problem was my entree didn't exist on the menu, it was an appetizer. I asked for the dinner portion. They charged me more than double the appetizer portion. When I said something about it, the chef came out and explained how in fact my dinner portion was different. I looked at the menu a few days later and NOTHING on the menu was that expensive. So don't leave anything up to interpretation here.

Came upon this place while walking through the city. Of course the 2 for 1 martini sign caught our eyes first, but in the end the food is what we remembered most. First, our martinis, we had the passion fruit and blood orange, both fantastic. We ordered the Caprese salad and the Spicy Lobster and Shrimp pizza. They made something as simple as mozzarella cheese and tomato taste incredible. Now for the pizza, when it came to the table we were surprised it was basically a salad on top of a pizza crust. Very unexpected. But let me tell you, after the first bite I wondered why I never had tried something like this before. The combination of toppings was unbelievable. We really loved this place and can't wait to go back.
