Pazzi Pasta 10-26-2013

Location: 227 Smith St. BK
Time: 6pm
People: RB, CK and myself

Feelings: Pazzi Pasta is a casual pasta joint that brings fresh made pasta (literally made in front of you) and organic, locally-sourced sauces to this one of the oldest Italian neighborhoods in Brooklyn. In this family-owned establishment, customers can choose the type of pasta or grain, sauce and toppings a la Chipotle, just with more gourmet, higher quality food. There are plenty of vegan and vegetarian options (veg balls!) as well as seafood based sauces and meat. Organic house made sodas, espressos, and some desserts like chocolate ravioli and almond cookies are also available.

The quality of food is fantastic. Pasta is perfectly chewy and al dente, and the Southern Italian style sauces are exceptionally fresh. Small bowl is $10, large is $13, kids' size is $7, but the portions are so large that the small bowl would be more than plenty. Our favorite is Nero di Seppia (cuttlefish ink) pasta with the calamari red sauce. Delizioso!

Now that my beloved Brucie no longer accepts take out orders, Pazzi would be my go-to pasta pick up. The service has some major kinks, but I hope they will work this out soon. Good luck, Pazzi Pasta!
