OK, I've been going to Pazzos since I was 16 year old. 25 now and nearly a decade of loving this place. Of course only 4 years of getting to enjoy the beers.

This place just feels like a beer bar. It's a touch less desirable than some place and I've been here when the AC was out in the middle of summer. Nobody is perfect I suppose. Plenty of TV's in places, other places lack. The outside patio that they added after taking over Kitty's is great but they really need more service out there (where else would you eat on a nice day?). Their bourbon bar area is well done...exceptional perhaps.

The service is iffy. They have a tendency to hire women and well having worked in the restaurant industry this is often a bad idea. For every great female server I've known 10 were just awful. Expect some slow service, many aren't overly knowledgeable about beer, but over all they do try.

40 taps give or take, and 200-300+ bottles....I can't think of a better pizza place.

Their food takes way too long to come out, but gosh it's slow to make.

Prices here are just amazing. 4 bucks for a pint of some of the best beers out there. I can't remember paying more than 5 for a pint and I"ve gotten treats such as 5 year old stone barely wine, and other rarities that periodically show up.

Love the seating inside and out, only wish the patio was larger. Greeted immediately and seated as quickly. Beer selection is second to none. The food is excellent. Great place.

So I've been to Pazzo's many times, but I never taken the time to give it a review. So this will be based on my recent visit during our trip to Lexington.

Pazzo's is just an all-around great pizza joint with an incredible beer selection. They have something like 40 taps and a super strong focus on craft beer so even the most discerning craft beer advocate can find something he will love. If you get lucky you may even find a few rare taps as well some rare bottles to be had. The pizza is top notch and their pretzels are absolutely world class. I highly recommend the beer cheese as well. Prices are very reasonable and you can go and enjoy a good dinner and a beer any day the week and not leave within empty wallet.

Pazzo's is the best restaurant in town for craft beer lovers! They also happened to have pretty good pizza, but I always go for the beer. With about 100 to choose from, they have a great selection of local craft beers, Belgian classics, and barrel-aged beauties. The restaurant is a bit of a maze, but that is part of the appeal. When you include all of the nooks and crannies, this place is quite large...I bet it is rockin' on UK game days! The staff does a great job suggesting beers and seem to know their stuff.

Great atmosphere. Huge beer selection. Decent food but not an amazing gourmet experience.
