Delicious Italian Food

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... read 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

Never disappointed! The house red wine was very good. Antipasto was delicious and the Caesar starter salad was good. Warm bread served with garlic herb butter very light and crusty. And their pasta dishes never disappoint.

Four of us visited this restaurant on a Saturday night during an unusually warm weekend, primarily because of the great reviews we read on TripAdvisor. We were all disappointed with the experience, partly because it was so uncomfortably hot (which wasn't in the least addressed by the single standing fan which may have sufficiently cooled the pianist, but did nothing...

Lanza's is just wonderful! Every time we go there, whether for a long relaxing Italian dinner, or just pizza and wine, the place rates a five of five! Last night we visited again, just for Pizza and both the food and service were perfect. The wait staff, mostly Lanza family members, are very friendly and prompt. We just love it... More

The food, service and ambiance is something else. If you want good Italian food, music on the weekends, go here. It is one of our favorites. Since 2011, we have enjoyed this restaurant every so often. Enjoy!

Yum! One of the best meals I've enjoyed in a long time. I had the Chicken Marsala and it was exquisite. Loved the piano player. GO! you won't regret it.
