One of my favorite places to eat in Denver

Have been choosing Panzano's for special family occasions for years and it never disappoints. All 8 people in my party loved their food and the service was outstanding.

We had brunch here on a Sunday morning. The food was excellent, but a little pricey for the quantities served.

This restaurant is wonderful. It is within the Monaco Hotel and the stay at the hotel was wonderful. The food is wonderful as is the staff. Our server was excellent. He recommended several items and we loved everything we ate.

Extremely noisy during happy hour. Good small plates at the high end of the range for price. Service when busy was spotty. Apparently a happening place downtown Denver.

I've been fortunate to have some great meals recently. Dining at Panzano's was absolutely one of the best meals and service I've ever had. Ask for Laurie to be your server if she is available. She was extremely knowledgeable and attentive and deserves to be paid extra for this. Our meal was delicious from start to finish. We had separate... More

Had brunch here, several years since my last visit. Must be a new chef...clever dishes that were way over seasoned, fried gnocchi, too much olive oil, a real Italian chef would never over season in this fashion. Lovely atmosphere. Went home and got heartburn. Note to chef: Key to good Italian cuisine, great ingredients, prepared in a simple, subtle fashion.

My husband and I tried this restaurant for an anniversary dinner, and it was perfect from beginning to end. The atmosphere is wonderful, food is delicious and beautifully prepared/presented. The wine list is varied and the servers excellent, friendly, knowledgeable. We stayed at the hotel attached to the restaurant, so it was extremely convenient.

My husband and I got engaged here on Valentine's day 2014. The service and the meal were amazing. We returned to the restaurant after spending our wedding night at the Hotel Monaco. They brought us a special dessert after our meal and memorialized our day in an extra special way. It was a very nice experience and I highly recommend... More

We celebrated an anniversary at Panzano and had a fantastic meal. It is a fairly large restaurant, so the lighting and ambience is not that romantic, but the meal was great. Brussel sprouts for apps, steak and gnocchi for dinner. Everything was very tasty and the wait staff was very helpful and responsive to all our needs and questions. Would... More
