We go back every year and are never disappointed. Everyone orders something different - Italian dishes to fresh seafood and it's always delicious. I had the shrimp parmigiana this time and of course couldn't finish it as the portions are always very generous. Had it for breakfast the next day and it was even tastier then. Beautiful views if you... More

We found this great restaurant on our first night of a week-long trip to Provincetown. We ended up going there every night for a meal as it was so good. The location is excellent, with fantastic sea views across the harbour. All the staff were friendly and very helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The menu was varied, and... More

Early Bird Specials....they don't advertise much anymore about them, but Mussels and Linguine, plus soup or salad, bread, coffe or tea, for 15.99 can't be beat. Did I mention how good they were! Other specials available too. And the main dining room is ON THE WATER. At high tide it will be lapping at the window and low tide you... More

We had lunch here recently at the recommendation of the hotel that we were staying at. I had the chicken quesadilla and my fiance had the crab cake BLT. We both enjoyed the food, the service and the atmosphere....especially the atmosphere!! The view was incredible!!! The food was wonderful and the service was quick. I felt that the prices were...

We have eaten here three times this summer and twice this week. We are longtime visitors to Provincetown. We chose to stay at the Surfside for our summer visits in which the restaurant is about 10 yards away on the bay. The food is delicious. It is priced right and has early bird specials. There is a nice selection of... More

We went back for a second time so my partner could have the shrimp appetizer. We shared the chicken wings, which are some of the best I have ever eaten. I had the baked scallops and was pleased. The letdown came at the end. I had previously used an American Express Travelers cheque to pay for my meal. This time,... More

If your traveling to Provincetown, you must enjoy the food at Fanizzi's. The bar tenders are famous for making great drinks and the kitchen is famous for their cooking. The restaurant is right on the ocean and the view is wonderful. We always make this stop when in P-Town.

We eat at Fanizzi's every time we are in Ptown. Even though this time was packed, they did not disappoint. Great service, great food, friendly people. We send people here all the time for the consistent greatness of Paul and his staff. Do not miss a chance!

This was a great place to eat on the sea. Service was very rushed and not especially friendly which really let the place down. The food was variable - some was very good and some dishes pretty disappointing. But you really do have a very good view.
