Funfeasts is about enjoying and exploring life - through food. It's an attempt to chronicle my feasts of fun and the many tasty bites experienced along the way.

Pizza, Pasta at Pazzo in San Carlos

Pazzo embodies that rare gem of a neighborhood restaurant: walk-in casual, good service, killer food.  With a menu of expertly crafted dishes rolling out of the kitchen it's no surprise a short wait is often the norm.

The wood-fired oven churns out a variety of pizzas with my standout favorite being the simple Margherita.  You get the right balance of tangy sauce, luscious cheese and charred crust.  It’s a nice menu item that goes well with the spicy rigatoni.

The rigatoni with housemade fennel sausage definitely kicks it up with a generous amount of chili flakes but is balanced out by the butter in the background.  Another standout is the cavatelli with slow-braised pork which is both homey yet sophisticated in flavor.  And don’t forget dessert:  the ricotta cheesecake is delicate - but rich - and just sweet enough.

With the popularity of Pazzo there’s often a wait these days for one of the tables.  If time is short, there’s always Panda Dumpling next door (but a whole different atmosphere altogether).
