Pazza Notte: Where New York Flair Meets Sacramento Charm

pazza note

Nestled in the bustling streets of Sacramento at 1801 L St., Suite 10, Pazza Notte has quickly become a beacon for those seeking a unique blend of Italian-American cuisine within a setting that speaks volumes of its New York City roots. This Italian restaurant and bistro, spanning nearly 3,000 square feet, offers more than just a meal—it presents an experience.

With an open kitchen concept and a U-shaped bar greeting patrons upon entry, Pazza Notte brings the vibrant energy of New York’s dining scene to the capital region. The space is artfully decorated with vintage black-and-white photographs of Hollywood stars, creating an ambiance that is both nostalgic and contemporary. The addition of draping plants and a cozy, newly-constructed patio under the Sacramento Al Fresco Dining Program adds to the charm, making every dining experience under the sparkling fairy lights a moment to cherish.

The menu is a testament to Pazza Notte’s motto of under-promising and over-delivering. From a modest $5 side of grilled garlic bread to a lavish $29 seafood risotto adorned with lobster, shrimp, and crab, the restaurant offers a palate-pleasing range of dishes. Pizza lovers are in for a treat with seven types of thin-crust pizzas, each boasting luxurious toppings like white truffle oil and smoked Gouda.

An extensive drink list complements the culinary offerings, featuring wines, beers, Champagnes, and a martini-focused cocktail bar with a happy hour menu. This dedication to quality at moderate prices mirrors the standards of its Manhattan predecessor, promising a fusion of comfort, taste, and affordability.

Pazza Notte’s outdoor space is a testament to the owners’ dedication, featuring 50 seats amidst a “Jumanji jungle” planter wall and handmade tiles. This patio, described as their “baby” by owner Tove Nord, is the fruition of over a year’s planning and passion.

Pazza Notte is more than a restaurant; it’s a destination where every visit is a “crazy night” of culinary delights, echoing the Italian translation of its name. It’s where New York’s dynamism and Sacramento’s warmth converge, creating unforgettable experiences for all who walk through its mosaic entrance.
