My wife and I ate Sunday lunch at Fanizzi's and had a pleasant experience. The view is great if you can get a table with a view. The food was average but well prepared and presented. The staff was very busy but our server did an excellent job. Most patrons were eating from the Sunday brunch buffet, but we ordered off the menu which had a nice variety. I recommend this restaurant but be warned that it is difficult to find parking.

This was our third visit to Fanizzi's and we have been pleased every time. The food is wonderful and the view fantastic. My husband ordered the sirloin tips and I had the broiled scallops. Both dinners were delicious. Fanizzi's does take reservations, but unfortunately will not reserve a table by the window. So, although we had made a reservation, other couples that just walked in got the prime seats by the windows. But overall our experience was lovely.

A place far off the beaten path, yet still on the water side of Commercial Street. On the Truro end of town, this place is a fave of locals and long time summer visitors. It is one of the few restaurants that has a commanding view of the bay (heck the main dining room is literally IN the bay) that would make this worthy of a visit no matter what the food was like. But throw in a huge and varied menu, and an extremely helpful and friendly waitstaff--well you have a recipe for success.
I have only had lunch there, and their lunch menu straddles the line between standard fare and fine dining. Yet the prices are extremely reasonable for the quality, which is excellent across the board. Dozens of options will please the seafood enthusiast, steak and burger fans and vegetarians alike, no mean feat.
Scallops, cod, clams, mussels, lobster, calimari, salmon, shrimp, crab, tuna...that's just on the lunch menu. Home made meatloaf, huge burgers and steak tips are house favorites. Some of the better fries in PTown to boot. Cole slaw also deserves mention, tart
and unique. Baked stuffed artichoke, zucchini sticks, cranberry salad, and house veggie
burger join more familiar potato skins, onion rings and nachos to give a sample of veggie options. Highly recommended. Even has a tiny parking lot on site-unusual for Commercial Street.

I had the provençal scallops with wild rice and haricots verts, which were just ok. My partner had clams with fries and coleslaw, which were about as fancy as anything you'd get from a fish'n chip truck in some other coastal town. Overall, I was underwhelmed. I expect more pizazz from the food when it's at their price point.
