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.

My wife and I were in the City for medical appointment and after my wife getting a great report we went to Panzari's to have lunch and give thanks for the good news.

We decided on trying to have dinner at Panzari's after we left GEVA this past Saturday night. I said decided, since we did not have reservations. Fortunately for us the staff were very receptive and showed us to a table. BOTH the service and food were excellent. Nicky, our waitress, could not have been more accommodating and, as stated earlier,... More

This is a very cozy spot to meet up with friends for lunch. We were there a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful time. Service was attentive and the food was good - cold food was cold and hot food was served hot!. I usually order the caesar salad with the grilled chicken on top and as usual... More

My first and only visit, very bad service, waited 25 minutes for water, should have left then. After waiting over 1 hour and 10 minutes for our food we had to flag down the waitress, and she told us that they were busy and acted like we came at the wrong time. We had reservations at 6 pm and needed... More

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 one side of a row of stores at the heart of the uber-trendy Corn Hill... More

Excellent service, food was wonderful, my wife's pasta was slightly undercooked, but I like it that way, nice environment, wonderful smells, would stop in again with no hesitation. I didn't give them five stars because I reserve that for "THE" meal. 4 Stars.

If you asked my for my favorite restaurant in Rochester, this would be my choice. The food here is great, the portions way too big, the atmosphere perfect and the prices very reasonable. What else could you possibly ask for. Plus, it's only a mile from my house. I'm an Inner City guy and this is an Inner City restaurant... More
