I visited Panzano after arriving from London on a long flight and it is situated in the Monaco Hotel where I was staying. The menu in the restaurant and the bar is the same and the atmosphere is the bar is very relaxed. Service and food were excellent and staff were very attentive. Quality and quantity of food was good.... More

This restaurant offers great views right on the street, large full length windows, a full service bar and excellent, attentive service. The food is excellent and I was skeptical at first as the food is gourmet. Selections focus on cuisine of Northern Italian influence from beef to pork, fish as well. We had two completely different dishes and they both... More

We visit Panzano's several times a year. The food is always consistent. Chef Elsie is wonderful. If I lived closer to Denver, I would eat at Panzano's more often.

Better than you would expect, for the price this is a real value. Great food. Not a typical hotel restaurant at all. So far, my favorite Italian restaurant in Denver, and I grew up eating home made Italian food by a fabulous chef. Very nice overall experience.

One of the best Italian restaurants in Denver. We started with some great special cocktails, then the scallop appetizer was outstanding. Salmon on mushroom risotto was excellent, and the brussels sprouts were to die for. Very friendly atmosphere.

I would go to this restaurant anytime I am in the area. This was probably the best place we ate at in the city. We did't go to more than 10 places but this was the best, service was great, wine selections ample and prices were spot on for the quality.

By far the best Italian in Denver! Don't be fooled by it being in a hotel. It's awesome and well worth it.

I stumbled across Panzano's on Open Table and decided to give it a try. We loved it! Great food, awesome staff and fabulous desserts....try the butterscotch pudding. It's out of this world. Brian P was our server and he was fun, informative and very attentive. If visiting Denver this restaurant is a must do.

Go for the 3 course "Power Lunch"! This is reasonably priced, and the food is always wonderful. The greens with pommegranite, pine nuts and goat cheese salad was memorable, the bread was fabulous, superior service! Mixed reviews on the luncheon entrees: avoid the lamb ragout, which sounded great but was rather tasteless. Get a table out by the windows (reserve... More

Thanks for the review! It is upsetting to hear you did not enjoy the lamb, it is usually one of my favorite dishes. I will pass along to the chefs. See you again soon. More
