Map | Find Parking
The word "pazzo" in Italian means crazy--which is what friends and family told owner Rocky Aiyash he was when he decided to start opening Italian restaurants. Aiyash also owns Pazzo's Cucina Italiana and its downstairs pub, Pazzo's Bar & Grill, in addition to this 311 S. Wacker location, which offers seating and special event space in a glass-topped atrium that also features palm trees and a waterfall. (The restaurant hosts about 100 weddings a year.) The restaurant's menu includes items such as lobster ravioli, gnocchi and chicken Vesuvio; a grab-and-go deli attached to the restaurant called Pazzo's Express offers made-to-order wraps, sandwiches, doughnuts and other eats.
