Quattro Formaggi – Pazza Bistro

It’s my blog, and I’ll write about pizza if I want to. I am a pizza expert by association- my Amazing Husband loves pizza the way that I love sandwiches. So I couldn’t turn down an offer to try some fresh Italian cuisine at Pazza Bistro thanks to an invite from Amber . Plus, I have it on good authority from one of the managing partners that the restaurant is actively looking into incorporating a few sandwiches into their menu as they kick off their second year of existence. So this review is me embracing Sandwiches of the Future.

Pazza Bistro is set up much like Pei Wei. You order, seat yourself, and the food is then brought to you. This is not “fast” food, as everything is made to order.

I kicked off my night with a red wine. The selection is limited but solid.

I am super picky about Cheese/Garlic bread. I kept coming back for more of this little chunk of tastiness.

Bring on the pizza! All pizzas at Pazza Bistro are thin crust, 12″, cooked with an open flame, and loaded with fresh ingredients.  My favorite was the aforementioned Quatto Formaggi-mozzarella, gorgonzola, goat cheese, and parmesan. Divine.

I also sampled the Chicken Pesto.

Another genius slice I shoved into my mouth was the special of the month, the White Pizza. This bad boy is so popular, they are going to add it to the regular menu soon. Goat cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and spinach. Heavenly.

All hail the pasta parade! The pasta is made on site and is a cut above most Italian places I have been to. They offer classic and signature sauces. The Lobster Sauce was out of this world good.


Spaghetti and Meatballs, natch

Sauteed shrimp, onions, and mushrooms with the lobster cream sauce. Still dreaming about this dish!

I ended my night with this Nutella Pizza. It was a hot mess to eat, but I love a chocolaty sweet treat to end a great meal.

You may choose to end your night by taking Pazza Bistro’s Inferno Challenge. If you can eat their spicy pizza in under 20 minutes, there is a spot for you on the Wall of Flame. It burned my eyes just taking this picture. I comforted myself with another slice of dessert pizza and maybe a little bit more wine.

The prices are very reasonable for the high quality of the food, you can purchase fresh pasta to cook at home, the folks are friendly and accommodating, and the location (next to the Regal Park movie theater) is easily accessible. I can’t wait to go back and try the salads, and eventually the sandwiches.

Disclaimer: I was invited to dinner and provided with food in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.
