Very nice surprise in Denver

I was in Denver with my wife for a convention, and we had to find a restaurant for dinner, late and at last minute. After browsing a few options around the hotel, I selected Panzano, and it turned out to be a gem! For dinner, we had a prix-fixe four course set for 30$, and everything was... read more

Three of us had dinner here Monday and it was so good, we returned again on Saturday for Denver Restaurant Week. For an appetizer, we ordered the brussel sprouts (excellent), the mussels which were exceptionally fresh, tender and delicious. On our next visit, we did the brussel sprouts which were worth repeating and calamari. Again, both were excellent. The grilled... More

We ate here twice and food was delicious and service was great. The maitre d' overheard me say I left my readers and couldn't see menu...so he brought me a pair. How is that for service.

We got the Fattoria Piatto appetizer and it was incredible! Best meat and cheese tray I have ever had. The Jim's Midtown Cooler drink was phenomenal! I wish they had this place in Dallas!

My wife and I took some out of town family to dinner at Panzano's this past Saturday night and have to say it was a very disappointing experience. When I booked, the lady who took the reservation forgot to mention that the full menu would not be available due to it being Restaurant week. Having arrived and found that out... More

I apologize for the lack of communication when you booked with us. We will address this so that it does not happen in the future. I am also very sorry you found our food lacked in quality. We hope you do try us again when we have our full menu available. Please reach out to me with any other concerns.... More

There were 5 of us visiting during Denver Restaurant Week. They did a great job with variety on the menu. Between the 5 of us, we had at least one of each appetizer, soup/salad, main course, and dessert. Nobody was anything less than completely impressed with the quality of each dish. Of particular note: Caesar dressing, smoked mozzarella soup, and... More

Panzano is an amazing place to have Happy Hour in downtown Denver, because of the variety of choices offered in food and drinks, and the excellent prices for those. Additionally it's the longest Happy Hour ever, from 2:30 pm to 7:00 pm, so you can practically have either a late lunch or dinner, both at Happy Hour prices. Their roasted... More

My hatred of Brussels Sprouts had originated somewhere in my childhood. My Sister and I would cringe at the very thought of them. So repulsed were we that we actually nicknamed them "Heave Balls". Perhaps Mother had forced them upon us in some sadistic clean your plate ritual. Whatever the original cause it had turned into a serious mental condition... More
