CIOPPINO  Red Snapper Striped Bass Monk Fish, Shrimps, Mussels, Clams, Scallops and Calamari in a Fish Broth

Pazzia is the Upper East Side’s take on an Italian trattoria. Open only a few months, the attractive restaurant’s decor is trendy with a sleek, urban-chic touch,  offering two rooms. The first is a pleasant bar with a few marble top tables. But take a left turn and you enter an upscale main dining room with with clothed tables, Siena and burgundy striped walls, hung with amusing colorful posters, warm mood lighting and French door that open onto the Avenue.

They offer a wide selection of appetizers, salads, pastas, seafood,, entrees desserts and specialty brick oven pizzas (listed on a separate menu). Our favorite had a crispy crust, topped with tomato sauce, cheese, bacon, clams and truffle oil). They have a full  bar that turns out fine martinis and Pazzia is owned by Tony Pecora, one of Manhattan’s more prolific (yet lesser-known) restaurateurs, whose early successes included the excellent Letizia and elegant Ciao Europa in the Warwick Hotel and who also owns the delightful Il Punto and.Albella,  a downtown hotspot that we plan to review soon.

On request the restaurants offers a gluten-free menu. For celiac sufferers, this is wonderful because it means they can enjoy the excellent pizza, pasta, house-made bread and cheesecake. What puts Pazzia on the culinary map are its fresh ingredients and honest interpretations of such dishes as Strozzapreti Pasta, GARGANELLI AL RAGU’ DI BRACIOLE Pasta served with Beef Rollatini Ragu, Cherry Tomato Sauce, Flavored Garlic, Parmigiano Reggiano Cheese, A sensation play on lasagna: TIMBALLO or Layers of wide Ribbon Pasta, Bechamel, Meat Ragu and Parmigiano Reggiano. Rice lovers will adore RISOTTO AI FRUTTI DI MARE Risotto with Mixed Seafood (Clams, Mussels, Calamari, Sea Scallops and Shrimps.

Suggested entrees include Veal Scallopine, a qunique Turkey Osso Bucco, Chicken with a delicate garlic and white wine sauce or luscious Grilled Tender Rib Lamb Chops, The choices are abundant and one.comes to Pazzia  to enjoy earthy Italian fare with a bow to today’s culinary trends.

Desserts are homemade and equally delicious. Don’t miss the outstanding Tiramisu, poached pear and terrific Biscotti and Cappuccino, The wine list is short but well selected and prices are surprisingly gentle for such a pleasant experience. Special Kudos to service, orchestrated by manager Raoul. From buss-boys to waiters, it is truly service with a smile and a feeling of my home is your home. Indeed we think you’ll feel equally at home and enjoy this find, which we seem to be the first to review.
