A must see stop in Lexington for out of towners and a usual watering hole for many of the craft beer drinkers in town (including myself). Pazzo's has about 40 taps at any given time and has an extensive bottle list. The food is not mind blowing but not bad either. Go between 3-7PM any day and get half price appetizers (all the apps are delicious and at half price they are almost pennies). They have a great variety of beer and usually have some great beers on draft (no need for me to list just check the website). Pint night on Wednesday is always crowded but it is fun and if you like collecting glassware it is a fun evening.

The wait staff isn't always the most knowledgeable about some beers but the bartenders know their stuff. Have a couple pints here and some food and walk about 12 minutes down Euclid Ave. to the Beer Trappe for a night cap. Both places are owned by the same family and both have outstanding beer selections.

One more thing, they have a great lunch special where you can get a jumbo slice of pizza and either a soup or salad for only $4.65 after tax.

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.
