Excellent Restaurant in a Very Bad Neighborhood

This restaurant had some of the best Italian food I ever had. The neighborhood was very scary; it looked like we were in the ghetto. For this food, I would come back.

Reminiscent of The Hill in St. Louis, Garozzo's is in a throwback Italian neighborhood of downtown KC that one would not be surprised if it produced baseball players like Yogi Berra or Joe Garagiola. Since we were in KC to visit family the weekend of June 12th, we thought we would celebrate our visit at a nice Italian Ristorante. The... More

A fun but loud environment with OK service and OK food. I like Italian food but am not an Italian cuisine connoisseur, so maybe the food was great to some tastes but for mine it was just OK. Wine selection was adequate.

4 person business dinner and it was fabulous. Dark and cozy with the fragrances of authentic Italian meals! Mouthwatering from the time you walk in the door. The Stuffed Artichoke and Sicilian Garlic Dip for appetizers were excellent. I had the Chicken Spiedini split between Gabriella and Samantha - more than enough food for 1 and it was terrific. The...

Terribly disappointing. My friend who has lived in KC was so looking forward to taking us here; a favorite of he and his wife. I hope he does not read this. The stuffed artichoke that we shared was tasty and up to expectations. My antipasto was dismal. Three fried mozzarella sticks and several lifeless slices of deli meats and a... More

The restaurant is not in the best place of downtown but it is worthy to go. As soon as you get in, you have that feeling of entering a restaurant with a lot of history and very cozy. I usually go here for lunch because there is too many people at dinner. The menu is simple but the plates are... More

Hadn't been to Garozzo's for years and we were looking for someplace different for lunch. Problem solved. Arrived shortly after 11:00 and were among the first to be seated. By the time we finished, the dining room was pretty full. So others were impressed. We ordered the sausage & peppers and meatball sandwiches. Also tried the Salata Santa Teresa. The... More
