Great views!

Fanizzi's is a solid Provincetown restaurant. Pluses include a small parking lot and great views. The menu is varied so there is something for everyone. It is not gourmet but every time I've been there, the food has been solid.

My son and I were down to our cottage on a two day trip to open it up for the season. We happened in during the early bird specials and got a wonderful deal. When the dinner salad arrived I thought this might be the only thing I would be able to finish. Huge! Great dinner with coffee included! Dessert... More

Brilliant! I can keep on adding adjectives to describe how wonderful this restaurant is. We had recommendations from the hotel where we stayed in - Cape Colony Inn. On the first night, we got late for dinner and after inquiring about couple of hotels, we figured out that this was the only restaurant which was open till 9.30 pm when... More

There is such a large array of food...from your typical brunch foods like pancakes, muffins, eggs, bacon to chicken wings, scallops, clams! This place is easily my favorite place to eat and I don't mean eat on the cape, I mean in... More

Great views and the food is very good. My husband had brunch at Fanizzi's. There was a great selection and everything was fresh. We'll be back!

View was lovely but the food was very very fried. Disappointing. Cod cakes were full of everything but cod.

We had a delicious meal over looking the water. It is tough to get a table right at the window, but the view is still wonderful. The service was very efficient. We had a deliciously healthy meal of the scallops. However, we follwed it with the decedent tiramisu with was delicious and big enough to share!

Parking can be an issue at this waterside restaurant. Be prepared. The food was very good. The waiter mentioned that linguini could be added to the mussel appetizer to make it a more hardy dish, but he did not mention that the few strand of pasta would add $5.00 to the $10.99 price of the mussels. Nevertheless all three of... More

We have eaten at this jewel in Provincetown's crown every visit here for the last 6 years. It just gets better! The food is prepared using the freshest ingredients and the cooking demonstrates great culinary skill, allowing the subtle flavours of the fresh seafood to be appreciated at its best.

Great service, great food, a little noisy on Saturday night. Reservations are a must. Loved sitting by the window watching the sun set over the water. Fanizzi's is always a must when I'm at the Cape.
