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

A great experience. The waitress, Vanessa, was friendly. We all talked like we knew each other for years. She educated us about the items on the menu. The eggplant, the zucchini, the sandwich, the sauces... all the food was great, and the prices were very reasonable. This is a family friendly place that treats your family like friends. We were...

We had a large group of 12 and showed up without reservations for lunch. The staff was a little flustered and didn't know what to do with us, but eventually they set up a table in their banquet room. It was great, we had the room all to ourselves. Our server, Finesse, was the best. She is funny and personable... More

I came to this restaurant three times and each time tried something different. I won't be coming back. It irks me that many of the pasta entrees come with bread only. So you end up having to spend $16 to $18 for a meal that's not worth it. The service and surroundings are average. I have tried their pizza, pasta... More

Their Manicotti is delicious, as is the Black and Blue Cheese Steak Salad! The interior ambiance was a wonderful place to relax with friends for an early Sunday dinner. The service was wonderful, too. This is family-owned and -run, which really shows in its dedication to pleasing its customers. We will definitely return, and highly recommend this if you want...

Ate here based on reviews and we weren't disappointed. Salad was fresh and crisp. Veggie sandwich on foccacia was yum and 1/2 burger tasty. Can't go wrong here.

We've eaten here twice over the past two years as friends have been enthralled with the television advertising. but, the food is just O.K. here, and the service is somewhat slowwww... There are many fine Italian options in Chico, each a better choice. A media blitzkrieg has produced an inordinate buzz, and the restaurant seems pretty busy but this is... More

Although they were a bit busy, we were soon seated and served. Staff was cheerful and very willing to answer our questions about menu items. Meal was very tasty. We will definitely add Panighetti's to our list of restaurants to visit the next time we are in Chico.

I've ate here 3 times and every time I am so disappointed. The food tastes like its straight out of a can and its way overpriced for the quality. I will not be back here to eat nor will I ever recommend anyone to eat there.
