“Great place for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013 via mobile

We worked up a appetite after walking down commercial street. We read great reviews on Fanizzi's so we stroll to the east end of town for lunch. The cod was good my friends had the clam plate and the scollop plate which they seemed to really enjoy as well. The best part of the lunch was the cole slaw, I think it was a oil & vinegar base dressing instead of mayo! I love when you get a decent meal and the cole slaw is excellent. I recommend trying this place out, the service was pleasant and the views are spectacular.

“Nice meal nice service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2013

We had a very nice meal last night. We have eaten at a few places in Ptown and this place one of the best. There is some off street parking which is huge. Not too pricey.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

We ordered lobster and it was rubbery. The chowder was mostly potatoes. The drinks were good though. We went to the Lobster Pot for our next meal and were not disappointed. Apparently, this restaurant has excellent Sunday Brunch so we are told. Overall, the meal we ordered was just average. The view was really nice.

“Best dinner on the east end”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 via mobile

This was the third time we have eaten here. We loved it the first 2 times so we came back. This time one of us had steak tips that were over cooked. Although we told the staff it wasn't a problem, they quickly made new tips (perfectly). They were customer service at its best! We will be back! Look for 10% off your meal in local coupon books.

“Bad experience at Fanizzi's by the Sea”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had lunch at Fanizzi's by the Sea, our first time trying this restaurant after coming to Provincetown many times over the years. We had a lunch with seafood selections, of course, an okay grilled cheese with lobster and a fried clam plate. By late afternoon we were both sick in the stomach, and I had to cancel my dinner reservations at another place because I was unable to eat.

Service was okay, the setting is very nice along the water in the East End, but it has been years since I experienced anything like the aftermath of this lunch, it's apparent that the supposedly fresh local seafood had not been handled properly by the kitchen.

We won't be back, ever. There are too many better options in Provincetown.
