The spaghetti western film genre is noted for its good use of extreme close-ups, its bad use of tomato sauce during gunfights, and its ugly use of Clint Eastwood’s puppetry skills. Get a fistful of western-less spaghetti with today’s Groupon: $10 for $20 worth of lunch fare; or, $20 for $40 worth of upscale Italian dinner cuisine from Pazzo Ristorante. Nestled inside the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Pazzo Ristorante serves up casual Italian eats with a side of authentically attentive staffers. Tune taste knobs to saucier frequencies with lunch and dinner menus wired up with pasta dishes, brick-oven pizzas, salads, antipasti, sandwiches, and sides. Alfresco aficionados can wait for spring and take their teeth fights outside to Pazzo's outdoor patio.
- Molto Bene--as they say, this place serves it up authentically Italian if you go for the Tuscan taste…The salad with arugula and baby greens was out of this world. The service was wonderful also. A nice once in a while treat. I'd like to try it for lunch some time. – Ruth B, Insider Pages
- A good spot for a summer evening sunset, with plenty of space amongst tables for a romantic conversation. – Open Table Reviewer who dined on 7/30/2010
