Amazing dinner! Food was fantastic, service was great, location and atmosphere were outstanding! Recommended to us by owners of the Masthead Resort where we were very happily staying. Sat in the bar area on a very busy April night - fully enjoyed every aspect! Will return, highly recommend!

We went here on Mother's Day and it was so good we plan to return next year if not before. On the water, great ambiance and superb food. We both started with the lobster soup. A cup was more than sufficient. Then we had the Monte Cristo which was ample and good. The servings are ample. There was a Sunday... More

Fanizzi's is the traditional kick off for our summer's dining out. Off we went and happened to hit it at Early Bird making a good deal even better. I ordered the veal parm which was excellent and still a generous portion. My companions ordered the beef tips and fish and chip, also very good. For Early Bird they came with... More

Here's the thing about going to Provincetown early in May. Many places are still closed for the season. The good thing.... Fanizzi's is open! We stopped in for lunch and got seaside tables. We ordered the Short Rib Grilled Cheese sandwiches. What a great idea. Crunchy toasted bread, melted cheddar cheese, sauteed red onions and fall apart tender short ribs.... More

Thought we would walk to Jimmy's Hideaway but we were cold and tired and the Hotel Owner said Fanizzi's has parking and a view. So glad we did. We split the scallops grilled and served on/in pasta. There were 12!!!!!!! We each had 6 and plenty of pasta. A local couple sitting next to us asked what we ordered and... More

My family setup a brunch here for 14 people we all did the all you can eat buffet, it was delicious with gorgeous views of the water with big windows. After you could easily walk Commercial Street. It's a great place to eat.

The food here is excellent. Every time my wife and I visit PTown, we frequent this restaurant several times. The staff is warm and welcoming always and the service is good. All of the desserts are to die for like this white chocolate bread pudding (see attached pic). Miss this place already!

The food was wonderful, we ate here twice while staying at the Surfside. I had the mushroom ravioli one night and the tortellini with grilled chicken the next. My sister had the NY strip steak and it was cooked perfect. And you can't go wrong with the martinis. The staff was very nice and did a great job.
