Lanza's is one of Port Townsend's finer restaurants. It has been owned and run by the same family for years and the service and food show they care about what they serve and their customers. The food is always consistent, Italian, and the menu seldom changes. Portions are generous and somehow prices have remained reasonable. A great place to celebrate... More

We stopped at Lanza's for dinner and were a bit underdressed, or so we felt. Regardless, the staff was friendly and prompt. We were there on a pretty warm day so the temperature inside restaurant was creeping toward uncomfortable. However, the food made up for the discomfort in temperature. It was very good. The pasta and sauces were outstanding, and... More

The food here is always very tasty and creative. The staff is professional and helpful. Some tables are small, and on rare hot days, it might be too warm if you are in a corner. Great wine list.

We stopped in on a week night with our young children. The service was friendly and attentive. Although the temperature in the restaurant was quite warm due to it being an older building with no a/c, the wonderful smells coming from the kitchen were enough to persuade us to stay. We ordered the pizza and lasagna. Both were very good,... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends at Lanza's. Wonderful atmosphere. Generous portions. We had Penne Bella, Puttanesca, Chicken Marsala, Chicken Piccata. All entrees were delicious with plenty to take home. The weather was very warm so we were offered complimentary Popsicles. Great idea and yummy! We would definitely be back!!

Authentic Italian with a smile. The food was excellent and the staff was very friendly. The Italian wedding cake for desert is a must!

Lanza's is a nice Pt. Townsend eatery - we are vegetarians, so we can't rate any of the meat dishes. So if you're a meat lover, this review won't help you. For vegetarians, the menu is a little limited. We had the lasagna, which was pretty good and the tortellini with peas in which they held the pancetta for us.... More

Had the white king salmon and angel hair pasta with meatballs at our table, along with mouth-watering rolls and garlic- herbed butter ... Topped off with cheesecake and whipped cream for dessert! Every bite was HEAVENLY -- so flavorful and satisfying to the eyes, nose, and palate. Lori Lanza and her cooking staff work miracles in the kitchen, and offer... More
