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. This is where the locals go, fair prices, good food, and off season is a great time to sit and relax watching the water within just... More

Fanizzi's by the Sea has been doing their Friday night fish fry for years. The price of it has only gone up only a little bit over these many years. We enjoy coming here throughout the year and since it has been a popular item, many other restaurants in town have attempted to do a fish fry to compete. Although... More

I have eaten at Fanizzi's several times when visiting my daughter in P-town. Never disappointed! Today we ordered the duxelle mushrooms for an appetizer and they were incredible! The lobster bisque was delicious and my cod cakes entree was great! I never hesitate returning to Fanizzi's each time I'm in Provincetown.

This restaurant is right on the water, which is very nice. The atmosphere is pleasant. I thought the food was okay, nothing special. I did think that prices were a bit high. All in all though, a nice place to have a meal with friends and family

Had a very average meal for an overinflated price. Ordered a cocktail to end the evening, on its arrival staff turned lights off and stood staring, asking us to leave!! shocking service. Don't go!

First of all let me start by saying I have really liked Fanizzi's in the past. My wife and I have eaten here several times for lunch or dinner. So we figured we would try the Sunday brunch. The price was ok but no omelet station, no carving station, tasted like everything came off the restaurant supply truck. Greasy bacon,... More
