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

This is a lovely Italian restaurant with great food and a lovely pianist on certain nights. It seems to always be crowded. There's a nice wine list and a very comprehensive menu for many courses. Try the linguine with salmon.

Located in uptown Port Townsend, Lanza offers all the standard Italian entrees. The service is attentive and the staff pleasant. The portions of pasta are generous. It was crowded on a Tuesday evening and appeared to be mostly locals. The environment in the restaurant was inviting and comfortable.

Our B&B host recommended this quaint Italian restaurant which was within easy walking distance. It is situated in uptown Pt T... rather than in the waterfront. The food all around is good, 4 of us each tried something different, as we did with the wine. Reasonably priced and large portions... staff most exceptional and friendly as was the clientele. We...
