Had lunch at Fanizzi's by the Sea in Provincetown. Very good food and service with a great location and view. Right on the water overlooking the ocean. The chicken roll up and the cod were great. Did not expect to find a place that good open in January.

Don't make the mistake we did and eat a big lunch before coming here for dinner -- the food is great and the portions quite generous. The boneless southern fried chicken is a treat for those who enjoy comfort food, and it was just perfectly prepared -- tender and juicy. And the grilled New York strip with Gorgonzola-rosemary compound better... More

Always come here when I'm in town,,, ! Brunch is always TOOOO filling, Lunch is prefect, I've had it all and loved every dish. Being right on the water doesn't hurt,,,, listening to the waves, watching boats, sea gulls-- this is Cape Cod at it's best.... But Fanizzi's is special,,, the restaurant employees are all so nice and professional (even... More

Very good all around. A little odd that there was a substitution charge for an item. Don't usually see that at upscale places. Right on the water. Been to P-Town hundreds of times and never knew it was there. Recommended by the B&B where I stayed(Bayberry B&B)

The view by the window is great, but the food was terrible! The server was very nice. The brunch buffet was not good at all. The mussels tasted very fishy. The curved beef hash was over salted and probably from a can. The bacon was crisp. The fruit and croissant were tasty.

Not my first visit, but definitely my last. The location is wonderful; the dining room is pleasant; the staff warm and friendly; the food not so good. I ordered the house salad with Italian Chianti dressing and chicken piccata. The salad arrived and it looked lovely, fresh dark greens, with garden vegetables. The dressing, however, looked like a tub of... More

Well worth a visit, proper food served by attentive staff. Lovely setting especially if you bag a window seat. Not the cheapest place, however you pay for the quality and portion size so yes it's well worth giving it a try.

This restaurant came highly recommended. We were in P-Town in late Sept. It was a week night but they take buses so they were busy. We went in anyway. The atmosphere was hectic and rushed with the staff appearing stressed. So make a reservation and if they have a bus coming in skip it. We plan to try it again... More

Wonderful view, our waitress took care of all 12 with us without one bit of attitude..food was good to great. I guess the Monti Cristo was a favorite, I had meatball sandwhich and it was also very good. But the waitress made our visit worth navigating through a construction zone to get there!
