Great time

I went with friends. Someone in town recommended it. It was a longer walk, but we didn't mind. Great food. We ate at the bar. Very friendly staff with good drink suggestions!

Located on Commercial Street but far from the action, Fanizzi's offers some of the best views in Provincetown with a friendly staff and good food.

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by the choices on the menu and the phenomenal prices. The portion sizing is HUGE and we could have easily split an entree. The view of the water was nice and our server was very friendly.

Reservations are necessary. Food is delicious and the portions are huge. The restaurant is tight and a bit noisy, but the food and service are very good.

It was a warm and cosy atmosphere. View over the sea. We had lobster chowder and cod and really liked our meal. We had a voucher from our hotel and got 10 % off.

The food and the service are excellent. It gets crowded and noisy as the day turns into night. But that is not a problem once you taste your food.
