Lanza's exemplifies the heart of a small town, the warmth and welcome of a neighbors table where you see old friends and meet new ones. Wander in the door (well, actually, reservations are recommended, they are that popular), and you are hit with a wave...More

Tonight we celebrated my birthday at Lanza's and it was a wonderful evening. Lori and many others greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome. We had great food and service and a most enjoyable time. We will definitely return again and again.

Dining at Lanza's is a time machine back to early post-war Italian joints - only thing lacking is the candle-waxed chianti bottle and red checkered table cloths. The food is good enough,yet hardly original. There is a small but nice variety of salads, but the...More

My wife and I loved everything about Lanza's. She had the chicken picata and I had the linguine carbonara; both were excellent. It's on our list of must-revisit places in Port Townsend.

Took my friend for her birthday, ordered the stuffed soul, big mistake. The entire dish was sitting in water. Worst experience I've had in PT. Sad birthday celebration and the older waitress was really unfriendly. I want my $72 back.More

As we had just arrived in town, we hadn't had an opportunity to make a dinner reservation. But it was still early, so we decided to try Lanza's. We were met by an utterly charming hostess who found us a lovely table ...perhaps the best...More

We had read about Lanza's but had never eaten here before. Glad that we finally made it! The restaurant is totally charming, with excellent Italian food and courteous service. The only negative was that we had to wait 20 minutes for a table to open...More

We have been coming to Lanzas for 15 years, once or twice a year. The last time we just figured it was an off night but last week was really disappointing. The chacature plate was skimpy and filled with pre sliced supermarket salami and cheese....More
