Great North End ItalianI'm sure there are many other wonderful North End Italian restaurants but any would be hard pressed to out do Panza. We were seated immediately upon entering at our reservation time. Our waitress was very helpful and attentive. The appetizers were outstanding as were the meals. Definitely will return here when in Boston.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMvery good food at reasonable pricesBeen to Panza several times - delicious food - always reliable - interesting specials - nice wine list -- great people watching from the "scenic view" front table of locals and tourists walking along Hanover St5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty ItalianLobster fettuccini and butternut squash ravioli delicious.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DissapointsGreat food, reasonable prices...

My fiance and I went for dinner before heading over to the bruins game. We were dressed in Bruins t shirts so we were looking for a restaurant in the North End that was more casual. The restaurant was small but did not feel cramped at all! We ordered our food and it came out pretty quickly. We were both very happy with our meals and even more happy when we got the bill. As far as north end restaurants go it was definitely more affordable than others! We were both pleasantly surprised at our experience at Panza and would definitely recommend it!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a absolutely perfectWhat a absolutely perfect Italian Restraunt the food was great and the service was better! I will absolutely be going again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with tasty twistsThree of us went to Panza last Sunday night and really enjoyed our time. We had to wait about 10 minutes for our table which did not bother us. The restaurant is small and there were many line ups outside of restaurants. We were attended by the wait staff immediately. We ordered the calamari, grilled greens over polenta, (fried tomato) caprese salad, seafood linguine, beef and veal tortelloni. All were excellent - the tortelloni were exceptional. Would definitely return for another great meal!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding!Food was outstanding! Small place with limited tables.
