Went with my wife for another visit. I got the three cheese chicken (Parm), which is always excellent. Server was able to substitute spinach for the pasta which I always like. My wife had the "Fucili (?)", which is a large bowl of pasta with meat chunks, which she loved. They gave you so much that my wife took half... More

Went to dinner for my husband's birthday. First of all, the restaurant is so loud you cannot hear someone sitting across the table from you. My dinner was not hot. Warm at best. Ditto on my daughter's. I did not want to spoil the occasion so I did not say anything until I was away from the table where I... More

I've been going there for (3) years with a group of friends when we visit Cape May a few times a year just to get away. The food was always really good in the past and service was always just 'OK'. We love the Greek/Italian menu and cozy atmosphere. The acoustics is so loud, (it used to be an old... More

The place smells delicious and was packed. We were sent to the basement lounge where no one exists not even staff. Then we called and we were told it was a byob and to help ourselves with the bottle opener. 20 minutes later and still no staff is down here offering anything.. water, appetizers .. nothing. Very odd.

3rd time was not a charm. Going downhill fast. Went there on evening of 1/21 with 6 other adults and found service slow and food disappointing. All three of the people who ordered fish found it over cooked. When we told our server, she said "Oh" and walked away. There apparently is no real management overseeing the restaurant. Save your...

The food here is really good, but they tend to use too much pasta and not enough seafood or meat. If they would put a little more real food on the plate they could easily be a 5 star restaurant. The bread and flavored olive oil was delicious. The salad special the night we went was excellent. The seafood dishes... More

We are long time customers of Panico's. We have come to be used to the long wait especially in the summer time. Last Saturday night ( 1/14/16) we arrived and were told that the wait was 30 mins. An hour later we were still not seated. When we finally were served the dinner was not hot. The portions ( a... More

Went to Panico's on Saturday 1/14, very disappointing. Ordered specials, served cold, sent back, and reserved cold. This was one of our favorite restaurants in Cape May area, NO LONGER. Chef sent over complimentary deserts but even the deserts weren't up to usual standards.

We vacationed in Cape May after Christmas and were not sure if any restaurants would be open. Panico's was on our list to call as it is a BYOB and near our hotel. Not only were they open and had tables available but there was a decent size crowd and a very chic/cool/welcoming vibe! I had the pizza without cheese... More
