Heard great things from my daughter about Garozzo's. I made reservations. Not impressed with the phone call. Person that answered seemed distracted. I get it. Arrived, greeted warmly, sat right away. If it wasn't so busy I would have asked for another seat. Crowed area with guest being seated and servers. Service...I was looking forward to a cocktail. I learned... More

This was our first time eating at Garozzo's and it was amazing. We've ate at a lot of Italian food from chain places to small time operations and this place tops the list. We ordered the Sicilian garlic dip for our bread it was absolutely amazing. Some places give you the free olive oil and herbs blend, this dip consists... More

By far my favorite Italian place in KC! You HAVE to have their artichoke appetizer stuffed with shrimp in particular! They also have the best cannolis in town. All locations are nice, but you can't beat the ambiance downtown. It's small so be prepared to wait but its worth it!

Our Friday evening dinner at Garozzo's was indeed a pleasure. The atmosphere, service and food were indeed exceptional. From the location in an out of the way place in KC down the street from the local Catholic Church to the picture covered walls tradition was rampant. Definitely a go back when in KC and would like to bring friends (we... More

We spent a very enjoyable Saturday evening -- eating truly great Italian food at Garozzo's in the near northeast section of Kansas City. Soon after we were seated, we both commented that the ambiance reminded us of a small Florence, Italy spot--tables very close, the great smells of sauces, garlic, and conversations that we just had to overhear. Our standards... More

We ate here on a Thursday evening with two other couples. We made reservations. One of the other couples have eaten here before and wanted us to experience Garozzo's. It was very good. The restaurant is wood paneled and dark inside(but plenty of light to eat by). There are pictures of notable persons and celebrities on the wall. Because of... More

Nicely done Garozzo's and you should be rated higher in the TripAdvisor rankings. If it's ranked as low as 47, I want to try a few more ranked higher! I had an angel hair pasta with a seafood mix over the top. It made me think of Cioppino over pasta! Pretty awesome stuff. Great service and good food = I... More
