This restaurant was recommended to us and we were not lead astray. The food was superb. I had salmon with rice and Brussel Sprouts. I normally do not care for Brussel Sprouts, but these were very different. They were deep fried and unlike anything I have ever had before. You must try them. The views over the bay were very...

We thought this was an Italian Restruant by its name, but it is a Sea Food/ American Restruant. The place overlooks the ocean, however that night it was low tied and you can see a few boats stranded in the sand. This is a big place with plenty of seating, but I forgot to see if they had seating at... More

We spent a couple of days in PTown last week at the Surfside Hotel, which was right next to Fanizzi's. We decided to have dinner there on Wednesday night. When we got there they asked if we had a reservation. We did not, as we didn't realize we needed one, but they were very accommodating and told us they could... More

The setting was nice. They had the windows open a liitle so the ocean breeze came in. We ordered fried scallops and they were excellent. Service was good. Ice tea and water was refilled. It was out of town and quiet.

Came here with 4 others and every meal was amazing. Great prices for the food. Atmosphere was exceptional and the service was good. Only problem was parking, but to be expected in Ptown!

There is no way I can come into town and not go to Fanizzi's at least once or twice while I am there. LOVE the food and LOVE the drinks. Beautiful view. Great service!

Had dinner here a couple of years ago and enjoyed it. But the thing not to miss is their brunch where you get a rich all-you-can-eat buffet for a very reasonable price.

If you don't mind walking, going away from the hustle and bustle of the other end of Commercial Street, try this restaurant. We sat at the bar and had a great view of the ocean - including a man who was riding his horse in the water!!! The food was great. I had one of the best crab cakes ever... More

Excellent Sunday brunch with a great view of the harbor. Reasonably priced for the options you'll have (highly recommend the Eggs Benedict) and a tasty Bloody Mary.

We stopped here for a late lunch after a day at Herring Cove Beach. I was still in my swim trunks and a T shirt, my wife in shorts and a Tee but we didn't feel our of place. We were seated quickly at a table on the bay side wall, next to a family. We had a baked mac... More
