Great booth by the window on our Aniversary. Cristy was our server. She took cocktail order and then brought us champagne fire to begin our food Aniversary journey. She and Romero were the best!!! Being gluten free we were so happy to find this fabulous spot. Started with the gf flatbread and fried Brussels sprouts! They were both very generous portions and the best gf flatbread I'd ever had.
I had bisteak and he had the lamb chops! Both were just perfectly prepared. Again generous portions. We "should" have shared the beefsteak. But no. We enjoyed what we could and Romero boxed up leftovers. I made steak and eggs for our breakfast at our Home Away fabulous inner city very secluded home. Better than a hotel. Plus we had a small pet. Again, too full for dessert. Christy sent us home with cream brûlée togo! What a special occasion she helped us create. Thank you...we will return. Thinking of making this our annual spot!

Thank you Matt, Dan and your teams for a great experience! ...From the wine to the special needs we had for the adjustments to the menu for dietary issues, Will handled all of our requests perfectly. If anyone is looking for a quiet evening for two or a full-blown business dinner; I would strongly recommend Panzano! ...In-house made bread, pasta (including gluten free), chef pairings and a dedication service... The ultimate evening!

Expertly greeted and seated, be sure and make reservations. Ask for Brian, always there when you needed something, great suggestions and fun! Started off with calamari and Brussel sprouts along with house breads and homemade tomato sauce, nicely done. Then on to main course of meatballs and finished off with butterscotch dessert that was simply wow! Unbelievable Italian wine selection.

Decided to visit based on the TripAdvisor reviews and it was wonderful. The brussel sprouts appetizer was delicious. Ditto the grilled Caesar salad. We enjoyed two seasonal entrees -- the ravioli di Parma and the tagliatelle giardino -- both flavorful. Portions were generous, but not enough to share the entree (in our opinion). Service was top notch. Adequate, but not overwhelming, wine list. Desserts looked wonderful, but we were stuffed. Definitely recommend Panzano!!

Had an absolutely superb meal at Panzano's! The place was jammed on a Friday evening, but our reservation was honored at once--we were greeted warmly and seated in a quiet corner booth. The setting is lovely, if somewhat understated, as the focus is on the food. Service was outstanding--professional, attentive, nicely timed. The extensive drinks menu offered some creative non-alcoholic options, including a tart, refreshing lemonade that I'll long remember. My companion's Caesar salad was termed great, and my own 'rustic' greens were unbelievably good, balancing sharp goat cheese with sweet pickled peach slices. My ravioli dish was superb, the oniony greens set with shaved fennel and citrus, and my companion raved about his house- made pasta with delicate lamb ragu. Three different artisanal breads added to the enjoyment, but sadly left us unable to even think about dessert (although it sounded great). Easy to see why Panzano is rated so highly--richly deserved!
