Located very conveniently next door to yo surfside where we stayed. The menu had lots to choose from and we figured it couldn't hurt. We did take out so we could just relax. I ordered my standard chicken parmesan n my partner had the fried cod. The cod was really good. My chicken parmesan was ok. They give you a... More

I was here last year for dinner. I had one of the hamburger meals. Not fancy, the one I ordered, but it tasted delicious! Cooked to perfection. AND............I had to try the Lobster Bisque first! The best in Provincetown! I had hares this from friends. I plan a trip back this year! Waitstaff is very friendly.

Being from Rome-Italy, i was always very leary about this restaurant because of its Italian name. Because Italoamerican food is the furtherst thing there is to Italian culture. Fanizzi's is an all American top notch restaurant. Service is very attentive. Fried calari, the fried fisherman platter and the 589er were perfectly fried and cooked. Fish and meat was extrely fresh.... More

Was a little nervous walking in to an almost empty dining room (I mean it is "off season") on Sunday night but WOW was everything delicious. Service was a bit slow (wouldn't you be overly attentive in a dead dining room?) and she wasn't overly friendly but the food more than made up for it. The bread pudding dessert was... More

Great view while enjoying a wonderful lunch. I was in the mood for a cod sandwich and it was fresh and juicy. My mate had the chicken cranberry wrap and it was equally good. And of course, their French fries are as good as they come. Excellent service from the warm welcome upon entering to the young attentive waitress.

We stayed in P-town (my husband, 10 month old daughter, husband, in-laws and I) in January. We had a difficult time finding food that was good and not over priced. We went to this restaurant on a Sunday and they had a great brunch buffet spread. The food was good. The service was friendly. There were lots of other families... More

I recently attended my neice's bridal shower at Fanizzi's. You could not find a prettier spot for a dinner or family affair on the water. The function room is very cozy and comfortable. The buffet was amazing. I have been to many buffets in my sixty or so years and I can honestly say this was one of the very... More

Lunch was very good. The cod was fresh and moist, the lobster roll pretty good, the clam chowder very good, and the lobster chowder great. Service was friendly and excellent as always.
