I hosted 20 people for dinner, and even narrowed (in advance) menu choices to make things easier. The good news is that we had a really good server, but the bad is that we only had one person for most of the night. We sat down at 6:30, and walked out at 9 pm-yikes. Some of our party had not received their entree's while others were completely done. I thought the food was good, but unfortunately, after 2 1/2 hours, it needed to be fantastic.
Might be ok for small parties, but will never go back with a group. Not a good choice for entertaining business associates.

The food is ok but I have had better. The prices are very high for what you receive. The service is haughty. Do not as for suggestions or order a moderately priced wine.

Great Italian food! Have been to Garozzos many times and the food is without equal in my opinion. The signature chicken spedini is worth a visit.

Kind of over-priced for what you get. We had toasted ravioli for an app and I could have bought the same thing at HyVee for half the price. It was noisy b/c there was a family with small children nearby and the food was just 'ok' especially for the price we paid.

I went to Garozzo's with 3 co-workers. The oil served with the bread was fantastic. A mix of olive oil, garlic, cheese, basil and parsely I could have eaten the entire bowl before even looking at the menu! The menu was extensive and had a nice selection of pastas and meats. A bit expensive, but the portions were very large and could easily have been shared between two people. I started with a wedge salad that was incredible. I then had the vodka gnocchi and it was (bar-none) the best I've ever had anywhere in the world (Italy included). For dessert, I had the Cafe Garozzo which is a house specialty. A blend of spcies, coffee (decaf) and alcohol, it was a fantastic way to end a great meal on a chilly night. My co-workers ordered the canoli and cheesecake and noted that they were small and "average" for those of you that are big dessert fans. I would not keep this from making my recommendation a 5 star, however, as everything else was superb.
