Good Service, Average Food

The staff was great. Good, prompt service. Very friendly and professional. The food, on the other hand, was nothing special. Typical for a chain, but not at all memorable.

Gave the new location a try for dinner. About average service - not great and not bad. The food was delivered a bit slow on the salad and followed immediately, like the main course was waiting to be delivered, as soon as salad was close to done. It felt rushed. Could not even find time for a second glass of... More

We gave Panighetti's one more chance and unfortunately we will not be going back. The Chicken Marsala was so tough and dry that it was completely inedible. The shrimp in the Seafood Pasta was so overcooked that it was tasteless and pasty. We hoped for a better experience after their move and gave them a couple of opportunities, but no... More

A group of friends and myself ended up in Panighetti's when our plans for just about every other brunch place we knew of in town fell through because they were so crowded. A friend suggested Panighetti's - a restaurant I had read the sign of while driving by - but never heard anything about. It felt desperate, but we were... More

More than Italian. Didn't seem that crowded to me, but the service was slow. Maybe just new servers?

When I made the reservation for 16 and asked if we could bring our own cake, they said yes and did not inform me there was a $1.50 per person cake fee. They also assured me the table would be set early so I could arrive early and set the table with my party favors. I called at 9am the... More

My husband and I joined my in laws for dinner here the other night. The service was fine. They kept our drinks full but the food was a little slow coming out. In fact the table next to us received their meal before us and we were there 15 minutes before them. My main reason for not returning would be... More

We were first time visitors to this restaurant, part of a large group(12 people) all locals except for my wife and myself. The menu is extensive with pretty much anything Italian you might enjoy. Lots of choices for beer on tap and pretty fair wine list. The outdoor patio was full , we dined inside. I definitely would sit outside... More

Our children took us to Panighett's for dinner on a Saturday night, should have figured something was not right when it was not packed. We ordered a round of drinks, got 3 out of 4 (Dillon the bus boy took our drink order). Finally Jessica (our waitress) wanders over, we order two appetizers and asked about the last drink. Dillion...

Went here for the first time with my BFF. At the door, a couple of staff were coming out as we were going in. They held the door open for us. Great first impression. We were seated promptly. Our server was very pleasant and friendly. Service was quick and attentive. Food was delicious. I ordered both the coconut shrimp and... More
