I made a dinner with three small plates last week. Gourmet food for less than $20! The fried calamari was cooked perfectly and the dipping sauce could not have been any better. I followed that with the Brussel sprouts that everyone on trip advisor raves about. There are no words to describe how good this dish. Ended with the veal,... More

In our experience gluten free & fine dining are rarely mentioned together but Panzano has discovered the recipe. Our server was very educated about the menu and with ease helped my wife navigate her meal selection.The food was excellent and the... More

We are here the first time because it was attached to our hotel. The second time we came back because the food was the only thing we could think about for the rest of the day. The eggs benedict (which my friend mistakenly ordered for me) was the best accidental breakfast I've ever had. It was so good that we... More

My husband had pork, my daughter had carbonara, and I had veal scallopini. We also ate every morsel of our calamari and the Brussel sprout appetizers The... More

The food is very very expensive for the size of portions. Well seasoned and excellent service. Bit over priced. Eggplant was little tasteless but the lasagna was good.
