All in all, a nice place. Can be rather loud and ambiance is a bit dark, but overall very good. Would definitely come back for more!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Dining ExperienceHad delicious dinner and lovely bottle of wine. The service was impeccable. Lovely ambiance.

Easy valet parking directly in back on the building, full bar, great food with very friendly and excellent service.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMPanzanella is a completelyPanzanella is a completely reliable, lovely restaurant with excellent Italian dishes including fine seafood. The ambiance is pleasant, noise level varies, though it was relatively low on a recent Sunday evening. Service is professional, attentive but not intrusive. We have brought friends here on multiple occasions and all of enjoyed the restaurant.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA great Italian dinnerMy second time to dine here and it was as good as the first. The food is top notch and I can't believe how much truffle is shaved on top of the risotto! I forgot how loud the dining room is, but I would say that may be the only drawback.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were terrific. I could do with a quieter room.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSuprising FindI have eaten an many of the Sherman Oaks/Studio City restaurants along Ventura Boulevard, but I found Panzanella to be my favorite. The food was excellent (I had the buffalo mozzerella with proscuitto and the Dover Sole special), the restaurant was very pretty, and the service was great. Definitely recommend.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove that they have a seasonalLove that they have a seasonal menu as well as the standard one. We had soft-shell crab salad that was wonderful, as was the Loup du Mare. One of the better restauants in the SF Valley and pretty, too.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMalways consistentWe have been to Panzanella several times, it is always consistent, the staff at front desk are very pleasant and present- rather than distracted. Our particular waiter that evening (wish I had his name) was upbeat, friendly, and a pleasure.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat findWe went to Panzanella for my daughters college graduation dinner and we loved it!
It was a very special occasion for our family so I called ahead to arrange for a surprise dessert.
Everything was perfect, the waiter was very helpful explaining daily specials and several other
suggestions of his favorite entrees, so we decided to try them. Everything was delicious-we will
definitely go back to Pamzanella's!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMDelizioso!Wonderful restaurant! So authentic and genuinely Italian. We are lucky to have this in the area! I had planned a romantic dinner here for my fiancé's birthday and Panzanella delivered!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place! Melissa was aGreat place! Melissa was a wonderful waitress. A little expensive but it's worth it.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousFantastic homemade pasta - very light, extensive menu, their sauces are great. Loved it!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day in RomaWe chose this Italian eatery because my family had experienced a great dinner there some months back. I flew in from San Francisco with my girls to celebrate with the family and enjoyed it very much. This place would be an instant hit in North Beach with pasta and fish dishes to rival any top Italian bistro. We started with appetizer pizzas and artichoke salads and my sister and I shared the halibut and a specially layered pasta dish featuring eggplant and spaghetti in the center. All of the entrees were delightful: well cooked and presented and the service was top notch. Also they opened up their private rooms and we dined in one of several large round tables which made it seem very private and the noise level was controlled.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistently goodWe've been going to this restaurant for years and have never had a bad experience. We celebrated a birthday in the private room hosting about 15 people and it was wonderful5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPanzanella was excellent asPanzanella was excellent as usual. Both couples drove about thirty miles from opposite directions to meet there and had a terrific evening. We'll be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the few special placesOne of the few special places to dine in the Valley. Great atmosphere, attentive yet not overbearing service, extensive wine list, wonderful mixed drinks, fine menu selection. We appreciated the subtle lighting adjustments throughout the evening. There was a very lively crowd this Friday night, although some would call it noisy. The only possible quibble would be if Panzarella could figure out a way to debone fish more quickly at the table. All in all a wonderful dining experience. We closed the place down and will return once again.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWant to hear your dinner date?A civilized, classically stylish restaurant with professional, friendly (but not unctuous) service, cosistently excellent food, and an atmophere that allows people to converse with their dinner companions without shrieking to be heard.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe ate here on New Year'sWe ate here on New Year's Eve and enjoyed the food, but not the service, so decided that we had to give them another chance. Our waiter and the service staff were excellent, and all of the dishes were beautifully presented and delicious. Will definitely return.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood Favorite.My better half and I love this place. It's the best italian restaurant in the neighborhood in my opinion. The wait staff are prompt, knowledgable and also very friendly. The food is fantastic and always consistent. During busy times it can get a bit loud, especially considering the size of the main dining area so if that is an important factor, you may want to skip on Friday.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceOur first time at the restaurant and everthing was great. I have to say one of the best italian meals I have had many italiian meals while traveling and I have to say this one of my best. If you are in the Sherman Oaks area you must go to Panzanella.2/12/2013 12:00:00 AMvery nice restaurantFood was great, They made clams and linguini for me even though it was not on the menu.10/11/2012 12:00:00 AM
