FANizzi's

I want some now! Love that 'slaw! Huge portions and reasonably priced. Half of this building is over Cape Cod Bay and if you aren't lucky enough to get a window seat you can always get it to go and eat at Herring Point or evem outside the restaurant.

"Little" describes this restaurant right on Commercial Street in the East End. We were staying at the inn next door, so parking was not a problem, but I bet in the summer you have to search to find a place for your car. It was very cozy inside, but the staff was friendly and the food was fabulous. A table... More

A kind soul at the Marine Hardware store recommended this off season restaurant. First off the location is on the water and great views. Server was super with a great fun and friendly attitude. I got a stuffed quahog and it was the best I ever have had... OOPS getting ahead of myself. I had a pinot grigio and wife... More

We where lucky enough to get a table by the window to enjoy the harbor view. We decided not to do the buffet and opted to order from the menu. We all had a nice meal and the waitstaff was attentive.

The views are lovely. The food can be spotty - we have had good and not so good meals here. Similarly service can run hot or cold. During our last experience here we ordered an item off of the "early bird" menu. The meal was brought to the table then quickly removed with the waiter indicating " a mistake had... More

This restaurant has the best clam roll in the world. And as one sits to eat it, there is a global view of the magnificent sea. Salads are great as well as the roll-up turkey sandwiches. My husband and I live in VA. and there is no place like Cape Cod to get good seafood. We use to live on... More

We ate here upon arriving to P Town. The service was nice and the view of the water was ok but food was just there. Nothing special about any of it. No draft beers as well just bottles.

When ever my wife and I are In Ptown Fanizzi's is a must stop. From the Calarmari and Lobster Bisque to start out with to the Tiramisu to end with we leave happy campers.
