First time staying in downtown Denver and decided to try Panzano, which looked like a very hip place in a cool hotel (I’m familiar with the Kimpton Hotel Monaco brand). I was by myself, wanted to relax and enjoy a nice meal. Boy, was I surprised at how good this place was; couldn’t believe how otherworldly Italian food could be.... More

We went here because of the great ratings. When we saw the menu prices, we thought it was pricey but figured the food might be worth it. The service was exceptional, however we weren't satisfied with our meals. The salmon wasn't cooked as we ordered, and overall the dishes and appetizers were not too impressive. It's ok, but not worth... More

We celebrated our recent anniversary at Panzano with their five course meal. Our server was knowledgable and has worked at the restaurant for six years. Each dish was exciting and fun. Pricing is reasonable for a downtown restaurant and attire is casual.

Unbeknownst to me before I got there, Panzano is actually the restaurant for the Hotel Monaco Denver downtown. Since my company’s meeting was in that hotel, we had an informal dinner there the night we flew in. I wasn’t really expecting that much thinking it was just the hotel restaurant and I was pleasantly surprised at how good my dish... More

tapenade was served gratis with a nice assortment of bread -- delicious -- one of the best we've ever had. appetizers were both excellent especially the mushroom dish. both of our main course pastas -- one with a lamb sauce, the other a gnocchi with rabbit -- were perfectly cooked and delicious.

Great ambiance, prompt and courteous service. Food was fantastic, nice to have gluten-free options. We had the Caesar Griglia salad (grilled hearts of romaine -- Yes! it's good) -- Capesante (scallops) and Ravioli di Parma. Great seasonings. We plan to go back!

Showed up after travelling all day and had the best HH experience. Two martinis each, two mini pizzas, brussell sprouts and the eggplant parm small plates, only $50. We were full and happy and it was delicious. The bartender Corey was lovely and had nothing but good tips about the food and nice conversation. Would recommend!!

Hands down the best calamari in the world! And I'm not a huge calamari fan. The service is exceptional. We enjoyed everything we ordered....to the max. Then walk it off strolling around downtown....or take in a show at the Performing Arts Center (walking distance).

This restaurant is excellent. The food is Italian but not your typical overly salted veal parmesan type Italian. The dishes we tried were very original and very tasty. During happy hour the bar serves tapas style small plates which are identical to the dishes on the dinner menu. This permitted us to try multiple dishes. It was so good, we... More
