We were a group of 13 and we had dinner here to celebrate a family member's birthday. I had the Penne Bella and it was really good. Everybody was really happy with all of their food. I asked the server to get the birthday boy's cake with a candle on it after the entree and the pianist started playing "happy... More

I was so glad to find this restaurant when I was in Port Townsend. You need a reservation but I did not know that but they were able to seat us. It was extra great because it was also my Birthday, but they did not know that when they happily made room for us. The food was fantastic, and some... More

Our new favorite dinner spot on the North Olympic Peninsula. Lanza's has fantastic authentic home-style Italian cuisine fit for King's & Queens! Fabulous meatballs, delectable perfect sauces, pastas aldente perfecto, outrageous Mexican prawns the size of small lobsters, chicken Marsala off-the-chart and yummy desserts like cannoli, cake, Italian ice creams... all exceptionally delicious, in a relaxing quaint atmosphere perfectly created...

It is our favorite dining spot in Port Townsend. We do many family get togethers at Lanaz's. Great location in Uptown. The food is excellent!

I haven't written a review before, but felt compelled after our dinner at Lanza's. The food was delicious, enjoyed the pizza, salad with balsamic dressing and minestrone soup. I really enjoyed my pasta dish with prawns, sun dried tomatoes and garlic sauce, the sausage tasted like it had been pre-cooked by the texture and dryness on both the pizza and... More

Came here for dinner with a group of women friends. 2 of us were from out of town, so we let the 'locals' do the picking... and they picked Lanza's. A great choice. Turns out that when you eat with 5 locals- that they know everyone and eventually we were sitting in the location with about 15 friends- some old... More

Having lived in the Northeast for nearly 20 years prior to moving to the Seattle area, I have certain expectations when dining at Italian restaurants. This is one of the few Italian restaurants in the Pacific Northwest that actually transported me back to the little hole-in-the-wall joints in Northern New Jersey, and small Mom and Pop Italian establishments in New...

I am unhappy that I feel to write this review. My husband and I stay in Port Townsend several time a year and have either eaten in the restaurant or ordered take out and it has been superb. Unfortunately this December 2016 we had a very different experience. I called slightly before opening at 4:55 PM, their opening is at... More

We enjoyed this Italian restaurant recommended by the owners of the bed and breakfast that we stayed at. It was delicious! The food was delicious and it was a nice restaurant on a quiet street. We sat near the door, which was great because the weather was very hot.

My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere at this restaurant and there are lots of booths in which to sit. The service was excellent. We had the Roasted Vegetable Salad and a vegetarian pizza. Both were excellent. The ambiance of the restaurant was increased by the piano player/vocalist they had performing that night. We certainly plan to return in the... More
