Chapel Hill: Pazzo for the first time

Sinophile | Jan 27, 2009 11:17 AM

I recently tried Pazzo in Southern Village. I won't waste words on the experience. The meal was thoroughly mediocre. I had veal meatballs and bucatini in a marsala cream sauce. It turned out to be your standard alfredo-style pasta dish, the kind of thing you might wind up with in an Italian-themed chain restaurant. I joylessly picked at it. My wife had the lamb shank, which was dry and tasteless. Others at the table ordered a pizza. Even by debased Chapel Hill standards, the thing was like cardboard. The service was friendly and efficient enough, though others at the table reported service horror stories from past visits. Pazzo is comparable in terms of price and menu to Panzanella. The obvious thing to do is eat there instead.
