Delightful meal! Made our visit to Provincetown, MA so memorable!

I read all the wonderful reviews of this restaurant and decided to try it since it was our first visit to Provincetown, MA and I want to eat by the water. This place actually exceeded my expectations. The baked cod, served with fresh vegs and wildrice is so delicious and one of the best I had. My... read more

This place has a wonderful view with excellent food. Their clam chowder is one of the best I've ever had. I also highly suggest ordering the cape cod mojito-- it has a wonderful blend of mint and cranberry. The service was outstanding as well. Our server was very attentive and always had a smile.

Nice bonus was the car parking, not many offer this in ptown. The restaurant is lovely, the bar are is great to pull up a stool, order a beer and stare out the huge windows into the sea and watch the folks playing around outside. BIG menu, lots of choice and great portions too. The meatloaf was delicious, even though... More

There are so many great restaurants in Ptown but if you want quality, quantity and value we suggest Fanizzi's! Great for family and couples. The bay view dinning room is great but fills quickly. We sat in the front (street) dinning room and we're just as happy (great AC). We do recommend reservations if you don't want to wait. 👍🏻

We've been coming here for years, and also had our wedding reception here! The food and the staff are always wonderful, and very consistent. The owner Paul Fanizzi is always warm and welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant above all others in Provincetown.

This place never disappoints. Not only is the food great but the owner and staff are so friendly and sincere. As a local I'm thankful it's open year round.

My husband and I went here on our Memorial Weekend trip to P'Town. The restaurant was right across from the hotel we were staying at. The service was excellent, and the prices were very reasonable. The atmosphere is very nice, as its right on the water. The food was decent. The spinach artichoke dip we got as an appetizer was... More

As a returning customer, I fully expected to have good food, great service & a reasonable price. That was not what I got. Instead, the food was outstanding, the service superior and the cost was less than I remembered from last year! So, do visit-soon!

This place has the best clam chowder in Provincetown, don't let anyone tell you otherwise! The Fisherman's Platter is perfect for anyone who enjoys seafood. Excellent food, and lots of gluten-free options (the staff are careful not to contaminate gluten-free orders, which is much appreciated). The view can't possibly be beat, as the ocean actually runs under the dining room... More

Fanizzi's was our best dining experience while visiting. The restaurant had an excellent view of the water and beach. The staff was quick, attentive and personable. We arrived around 6:00 and got an early bird special. It included a lower price AND a salad /soup. The salad was large. The soup was delicious. The dinners were so delicious and hot.... More
