“Best water views and comfort food in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

Being from Rome-Italy, i was always very leary about this restaurant because of its Italian name. Because Italoamerican food is the furtherst thing there is to Italian culture. Fanizzi's is an all American top notch restaurant. Service is very attentive. Fried calari, the fried fisherman platter and the 589er were perfectly fried and cooked. Fish and meat was extrely fresh. And yes, the bread pudding was 'da bomb'.

“Delicious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Was a little nervous walking in to an almost empty dining room (I mean it is "off season") on Sunday night but WOW was everything delicious. Service was a bit slow (wouldn't you be overly attentive in a dead dining room?) and she wasn't overly friendly but the food more than made up for it. The bread pudding dessert was by far the BEST I have ever had.

“Excellent lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

Great view while enjoying a wonderful lunch. I was in the mood for a cod sandwich and it was fresh and juicy. My mate had the chicken cranberry wrap and it was equally good. And of course, their French fries are as good as they come. Excellent service from the warm welcome upon entering to the young attentive waitress.

“Very good brunch; definitely good family place.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stayed in P-town (my husband, 10 month old daughter, husband, in-laws and I) in January. We had a difficult time finding food that was good and not over priced. We went to this restaurant on a Sunday and they had a great brunch buffet spread. The food was good. The service was friendly. There were lots of other families with children - so we felt comfortable having our baby throwing food and being silly in her high chair. Overall good experience.
