Nice surprise with good Italian food but in an inconspicuous shopping center

Four of us dined here for dinner, and while the calzone stuffed with ham and pineapple along with the pasta entree and vegetarian panini were all very good and filling, the Stromboli, although large and fluffy (the bread here is excellent), was insufficiently stuffed with pepperoni. The cheese and... read more

The food is so different to other Italian restaurant in Panama. The taste is delicious and it is clear the cheff guides the cooks. I advice you to visit this place.

The food is excellent, the best Italian food in Panama in my opinion. The problem is that the service is really slow.

If you're in Panama, do yourself a favour and go to Stizzoli. It may not be the fanciest restaurant you visit in Panama, or the one with the most creative menu, but it will be the one that leaves you with the widest smile on your face...especially if you have the tiramisu with nutella for dessert. They offer simple, well... More

Stizzoli isn't in the most auspicious of locations - in a mall above a Rey supermarket and opposite a KFC, but it really delivers when it comes to pizza. The wood-fired oven makes a big difference, but the real selling points for me have been the fresh ingredients. The staff recommended the 'special' last time we were there and it... More

Excelent food, excelent attention, good price. The restaurant is small and it gets full very quickly but is worth the 10min wait. Great Italian food.

We were very happy to experience this restaurant. Service was exceptional, even when menu items were not available. Overall, was nearly our favorite restaurant on our entire trip! Would return if we return to Panama City.
