We've been to Panza's about 12 or so times. We have literally never had a bad meal. The food is simply amazing. I've tried many things on the menu, sausage, steak, chicken and veal. They were all great. However the best thing I tried was the Ma Panza pork chops with peppers, its perfection. I've been to 50+ restaurants in... More

A mainstay of the area for 75 years, this restaurant is located across the street from Saratoga Lake (no view from within), a short 30 minute drive fom our house. We dine here several times a year with the food and service always good. What I noticed is, if I don't purchase a Groupon or use the Entertainment coupon, it... More

Panza's Restaurant was a disappointment. We chose Panza's because they told us they use all fresh ingredients and could easily accommodate special dietary requests. And because its good TripAdvisor ratings led us to believe we'd experience "fine dining." Some of the disappointments were small. It started with the non-existent view. Their website describes Panza as "on the lake." Saratoga Lake... More

Atmosphere is great. Service is great. Food is good but not extra-special. The appetizers we had, greens and beans, regular calamari, and their special spicy calamari were smaller portions than most restaurants. Dinners were average, however, a their chicken tuscany was very good. Food on average is good but not sure if we would re-visit.

Our friends wanted to revisit this place as they had gotten engaged here 27 years ago. A coupon made it seem more appealing. Very impressed. Wife's linguine with white clam sauce had 5 large fresh clams in it, and was quite tasty. My salmon had a delicious topping which made me skip my normal lemon garnish. Friends enjoyed their meals....

Bridey had a steak,good,but about what I can do at home. Extra spicy calamari and clams casino apps were also very good. Met a local character or two... More

We have been three times to this restaurant and each time have been served delicious food and had brilliant service. The pasta dishes are really tasty and not just the same old, same old. While they have all the classics they also have interesting out of the ordinary dishes. The pizzas are great. All the food is great. The restaurant... More

Went to Panza's with my wife and mother-in-law for their birthdays. Had a 6:30 reservation and arrived @ 6:20. We were asked to take a seat at the bar as the table wasn't ready. We sat at the bar until 7:15 and it's NOT August. The wait staff was very pleasant, informed and attentive. We all enjoyed our meals. The... More

We tried their "famous pizza", the thing I found famous was the lack of cheese and toppings. I could not beleive the pizza they claim to be famous for had so little cheese on it. Pizza Hut and Domino's both have a better pizza. My wife had a Cheesburger , the Cheesburger was excellent and so were her fries. The... More

We used to go here with my parents but had not been in about 20 years. The owner has retired, and unfortunately his wife (the boss!) passed away. Luckily, their son Tony continues the family tradition for superior quality meals and outstanding service. The recipes are the same ones passed down and prepared by his parents with some of Tony's...
