A word from Garozzo's Ristorante - Kansas City

Garozzo's boasts fine dining cuisine, moderately priced, in a family atmosphere. The restaurant is Zagat rated as one of the top Italian restaurants in the country, a Kansas City dining tradition for nearly 20 years. Garozzo's is where their signature dish Chicken Spiedini began, now often imitated and never duplicated around town; Garozzo's has made Chicken Spiedini a Kansas City staple. The Garozzo family and staff welcome you to any of four locations in the Kansas City area for a true Italian dining experience. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great food. Great service. Great atmosphere. Sat in bar area to watch the baseball game. It was crowded but fun. There's no other place in KC like Garozzo's."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Not sure I would go back often. The chicken spedinni was a little dry and not the special dish I thought it would be, since they were known for that. I had to wave down the server to ask for more water and soda. The broccoli was hard and without much seasoning at all. Didn't Sound like the Garozzo's I had heard about. I wonder if they were just having a bad night?"

    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We loved the food, wine, & service. The only thing we were hoping for that wasn't available was private seating or at least a quieter atmosphere. They really pack the tables and chairs in there."

  • "I live in Baltimore now and have not been to Garozzo's for 15 years; however, it was quite a treat to come back and get the same great food I remember I'm a unique setting that is not found in other places in KC. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, and for the great service and food."

  • "While visiting Kansas City we found Garozzo's on Open Table and made a reservation. We were pleasantly surprised as we found ourselves off the beaten path and when we opened the door of our taxi knew we were in for a treat with the amazing aroma of delicious Italian food. There was a 35 minute wait but got a table within 5 minutes because of our Open Table reservation. The food was absolutely amazing and were so happy with everything about Garozzo's. The tables are close together in this small neighborhood restaurant but I found that it added to the atmosphere of a great family Italian restaurant."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Everything is great. My only beef is how close we are to other tables. You can easily listen to others conversations. We had put in our reservation we were celebrating our anniversary. We went there because a friend thought it was romantic. Not for us. They put us at a table next to the entrance of the dining room we were in. Because of that we had a lot of traffic disturbing us. But the food and service was awesome."

  • "Love having local restaurants unique to KC and try to patron them as often as possible."

  • "Our experience at Gorozzo's was absolutely amazing! I have been to several high end restaurants around the world but nothing tops the food and the dining experience we had at Goroozzo's; everything was perfect. The staff at Garozzo's were amazing! Can't wait to get back!"
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "First off, the waitstaff is traditionally older like a European eaterie, so that assures you will be contributing directly to the local economy. And they're good! We had a blond waitress, didn't catch her name, but she had the air of a relative while waiting on us: unpretentious, instructive, caring and familiar, all dressed in respect. The food is very good. The sauces were delish, very homemade and not too salty. Next time, I will probably ask for an extra plate and split our choices so I can taste many different things."

  • "Wondeful! Last minute surprise for my husband, family and friends joined us for his birthday! Spiedini, lasagne, Classico chianti and cafe garozzo...thanks to the staff for another Wonderful evening!"

  • "Whenever I come to the Kansas City area, stopping at Garozzos is a must! The food is outstanding -especially the Chicken Spiendini Garozzo. Never disappointed. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We've visited Garozzo's many times, mostly for the spedieni, though all the other items have also been very good. The service is always impeccable. The atmosphere is typical Italian, with family photos and some paintings adorning the walls. It can get crowded, so we usually visit early for dinners. Highly recommended."

  • "Unique find as a neighborhood restaurant of long standing with high quality taste experience. We had no trouble finding parking even though the place was packed inside. We had reservations and there was no waiting. The waiter was excellent and an experience just by himself as he was well acquainted with the choices both in specialties and the wine list and he could really sell Garozzo's. We felt treated as if we were the only customers despite their handling a full house of families and week-enders like us. It was our 40th wedding anniversary and our daughter had sent us a gift card, one of the best gifts we've ever received."
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "Garozzos is consistently good. The staff is knowledgeable about the menu and wine list and they want your visit to be exceptional. Very east coast! "

  • "We went for an early dinner on Mother's Day. It was perfect timing to take our daughter, laid back and not too crowded. Food was fantastic as always. Our server was great and very attentive. Seriously, you can't go wrong with Garozzo's, one of our favorite places to go!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had not been to Garozzo's for several years, but we were happy we went last Saturday. It's like the restaurants the way they used to be, like a well oil machine and set back in a more simple time of grand dining. We will be back soon, it is our favorite place to go after experiencing such great service and food. Will probably try to have Allison again as our waitress, she was great."
