Restaurant Review

Pazzo MMX is a restaurant that diners come to for a vibrant bar scene, people watching, and to meet up with friends for good drinks & food.

They offer a menu with a large variety of dishes to choose from. The dishes are prepared using many local farm to table products and quality imported products from Italy.

Dishes are served in huge portions. Gluten free items are available. On Tuesdays they serve a three course Prix Fixe menu.

The quality of the food overall is very good, while not one of the best Red Bank Italian restaurants, Pazzo is above average compared to the other Red Bank Italian Restaurants.

The attractive interior of Pazzo MMX with seating for up to 150 people, has a granite bar, an open style kitchen off the main dining area, and an enclosed sidewalk dining area . The walls are lined with photo's of Sinatra and many other dead celebrities. The vibrant bar with 6 LED flat screen TV's and seating for 24, serves a full menu ---- it's a little darker than the main dining room, and more comfortable and livelier than the enclosed sidewalk dining area.

With closely spaced tables, hard surfaces, and poor acoustics, the noise level gets to be very high, and at times difficult for quiet conversation,

There is outdoor dining year round on an enclosed, temperature-controlled patio.

During the busy periods the service tends to be slower and less friendly.

Diners can park for free in the attached garage --- a big plus for Red Bank.

Pazzo MMX is open seven days/week.

Lunch is served Monday – Saturday: 11:30am to 3pm
Dinner is served Monday – Thursday: 3pm to 10pm, Friday – Saturday: 3pm to 11pm, & Sunday: noon to 9pm

How Do We Review (analyze) Restaurants?

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide objective restaurant reviews .

The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.

Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick",  and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
