My boyfriend and I have been here twice so far, and both times it was great. Nice atmosphere, good food. Only small complaint is the oil that is given with your appetizer bread doesn't taste good.

Food is delicious and the wait staff is great! The atmosphere is very warm and cozy. The only reason I don't give this place 5 stars is because the prices are a little on the high side for me.

The food tastes great, let's make sure that does not get lost. When back East, I try to eat at Italian restaurants because there seems to be a great one on every corner! Panzari's certainly fits that bill! In this case, the corner lies on...More
