We have had the pasta at Lanza's in the past and found it good. Recently, we decided to try the pizza. It is not inspired. The crust was not crisp, the dough without flavor and the ingredients just need more personality. All summed up: a bland pizza. Fortunately, service is attentive and friendly. That is the reason we gave it... More

I had heard about Lanza's from several people, including our friends who know the family and have had birthday dinners there for years. So that's where the five of us went. My husband and I split the large sirloin steak with Caesar salad. Passed on wine and dessert. It was cooked quite well and was more than enough to satisfy... More

We are in town for the annual Wooden Boat Festival. We found this restaurant on Tripadvisor and went without a resevation. We were able to get a table and thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience. First off, there was a pianist playing lots of Old Broadway music - I was in Heaven. The house chianti was very fine and my husband... More

We had loved Lanza's YEARS ago, and on a quick trip with friends to PT we took a chance on it again. So glad we did. Same ambience, same amazing food, combined with a perfectly recommended bottle of wine and lovely service. This is a special restaurant in a lovely little touristy town. Don't go to Port Townsend and not... More

Ive visited Lanza's Restaurant again during the Port Townsend Music Festival season. It was wonderful to hear a bass and guitar team, Bruce and John play on Saturday nights. The food is excellent and the service very efficient. I love this venue and it is truly one of the happy, upscale places to visit in PT. Note, the last seating... More

Very classy fine dining restaurant with excellent service. This place was recommended by the owners of the bed and breakfast place we stayed at and certainly was excellent. I had fish cakes served on a bed of linguini and cream sauce. It was exquisite!

We've eaten here several times and have never had a bad meal or bad service. Because they are in Uptown, Lanza's often has seating when everything in Downtown Pt. Townsend is jammed. Most recently I had their grilled Salmon over Angel Hair pasta special and my wife had the Chicken Picatta. Both were fantastic. Definitely recommend.

Celebrated our anniversary here on recommendations from friends. Glad we did. We shared the spaghetti with meatballs and the chicken piccata. The pasta sauce and meatballs were delish. The piccata was good, but very different from any I've had before. Most recipes are made with a lite lemon butter sauce...this was a very rich creamy sauce. Service was good. It's... More

What a cozy, inviting restaurant, located in Uptown Port Townsend. The food preparation was exquisite, with distinct flavors and spices used in each item we ordered. A secret finale to the meal is to try the "wedding cake"! The restaurant has been owned by the family for years and their love and dedication to a delightful evening is very evident.... More

I had the chicken piccata which was very delicious and for dessert I had the chocolate orange ice cream, which was great. The butter that was served with the bread was also yummy, a garlic herb butter I think. Nice atmosphere and great service. Worth the walk up the hill!! It filled up fast, luckily we got there right when... More
