I eat at Fanizzi's at least once every summer and stopped by last February,- my first time after dark. The view during the day in summer is wonderful and when the tide is up, the water is literally under the dining room.

The seafood is fresh, and portions are large. The service is professional. The shrimp and clam dishes are special. They make a lot of tasty homemade dishes. Prices are reasonable.

Had a fantastic meal at Fanizzi’s on a cold Spring night. The food was perfect as usual. I had my fried calamari as an appetizer which is always light and crispy with a superb dipping sauce and then the Fresh Broiled Sea Scallops that were served with wild rice and mixed vegetables. To end off the meal I ordered the... More

The big draw here is the location and that you can sit inside but be right by the water. The food is not so great and I have had to give my meal to my husband more than once because it tasted so bad to me. They seem to put pork, lard, and sausage in things that don't need them... More

My hubby and I celebrated the occasion by having dinner at Fanizzi's. As usual, they didn't disappoint! I had the shrimp scampi. Delish! The staff was meticulously attentive and accommodating, as I have multiple food allergies. They graciously made the adjustments, and it was wonderful. My husband had the sirloin and it was like butta!! Great job guys! Paul. Fanizzi,... More

We have been to Procvincetown many times during the summer. This was our first winter trip. Our usual restaurants were all closed for the season. On a recommendation, we tried here and we were not disappointed. Good food, reasonable prices and a terrific view. We sat at the bar for dinner and lunch the next day. Great bartender and good...

The view was nice. We were there off season and the service was still a little slow. I had veal parm, it was ok. Weird as it came out looking all clumped or twisted. I like thin flat veal. It was fine, but not much seasoning, I tend to like a more seasoned dish, it was somewhat plain I felt.... More

I want some now! Love that 'slaw! Huge portions and reasonably priced. Half of this building is over Cape Cod Bay and if you aren't lucky enough to get a window seat you can always get it to go and eat at Herring Point or evem outside the restaurant.

"Little" describes this restaurant right on Commercial Street in the East End. We were staying at the inn next door, so parking was not a problem, but I bet in the summer you have to search to find a place for your car. It was very cozy inside, but the staff was friendly and the food was fabulous. A table... More

A kind soul at the Marine Hardware store recommended this off season restaurant. First off the location is on the water and great views. Server was super with a great fun and friendly attitude. I got a stuffed quahog and it was the best I ever have had... OOPS getting ahead of myself. I had a pinot grigio and wife... More
