Disappointed this time -- the waitress was friendly, but we were out of water a couple of times and had asked for additional bread, which never came. My spedini was more "done" than any other time in the past.

Food was fantastic, not too many places you can cut a good piece of steak with a spoon. Service was great, all around a wonderful evening.

The Sicilian Garlic Dip is amazing & addicting! Loved the Cesar salad, but did not care for the raviolis. They were plain and did not have much of a flavor.

The food is great and the atmosphere is even better. I wouldn't take any small children. Its a very intimate dining experience. Candles on top of white table cloths. Kinda pricey but definitely worth it

Really great service and very good food. Only drawback was lack of privacy. Too crowded, but it was Valentine's Day. Everyone was friendly but it was hard to talk without getting involved in the conversation of others.

It was our first time there but we'll definitely go back.

The location is in a very dangerous part of KCMO. Once we were seated they look us outsides and up some stairs, which I thought was very odd. The waiter was rude, and quite awkward. The food was heinous. The meat on the lasagna was basically puréed, and the chicken Alfredo was the most bland dish I’ve ever tasted. Above all, the place is extremely over priced for what you receive. Just go to Olive Garden, guys.

We had Valentine lunch at Garozzo's, one of our all time favorites for almost 30 years!
We love, love the Spidini Garozzo and Chopped Salad. We live almost an hour away, and the trip is always worth it!!

I've been coming here for special occasions since I was a kid, and I'm excited to bring my kids now. The food is amazing, service always top notch, and atmosphere exciting but warm and inviting. You feel like you're in a family there and it's not unusual to find tables and diners interacting with others outside of their own. Hands down my favorite place for special occasions.

I asked for flowers and a card for our dinner plans. When i arrived i was looked at crazy for veing 30 minutes early. I was then asked my name twice to confirm my reservation and he still couldnt find it. Finally another gentelman asked my name and found it. At 3pm that day i called and spoke with a Matt about the flowers and the card and he told me he will pass it along and it wont be an issue and it was. Apparently thats not a option, which is fine if i would have known but Matt said no problem. I told the waitress and showed her my request and still nothing came of it. 25 years ago my wife and i were there for prom and i thought id take her down memory lane and i feel i failed with no flowers and a card like i did in the past.

It was a lot smaller than I expected as the other location is bigger. Bar is super small. Our table for two was cozy - but we were very close to the couple next to us. A bit too close for my liking. The Overland Park location is the better one, in my opinion, but go to this location to see where it all began.

I had the dinner salad before my entrée, and the salad was wonderful.

My husband and I visit Garozzo’s once a year to celebrate our birthdays and Valentine’s Day. We made a reservation early, and were seated quickly upon arrival. However, we sat in the bar area, which was packed with people and loud. Our waitress was amazing. Service was great! But before we were done with our meal, a total of four different employees, not including our waitress, asked if we were ready for our plates to be cleared. I realize the place was extremely busy, but that experience of feeling rushed left me feeling very annoyed. I’m sure we will return again next year, but maybe not on a weekend night.

Great place for Chicken Spiedini, our table had the Samantha, Garozzo’s, and Gabriella styles. Very generous portions cooked to perfection. The side pasta with the Garozzo was very generic and not hot. Nice selection of wines at various prices. Service was quick but not overly attentive. The rooms are packed tight, small, and as a result very noisy.
So, overall great entrees at very good price and fast. Not great for a romantic dinner or conversing with friends due to crowding and noise level.

Went in for our anniversary, I feel like I need to make a note next time we come in about where we would prefer a table. The last two times we have come we were put into this tiny table basically sitting at another table with another group because we were so close and the next time we were put at another tiny table next to the door and where the food was being brought in and out, very distracting and cheap feeling.

Overall the food is great and our server was very good.

Love the ambience of Garozzo's on Harrison street in Kansas City. Our server did a great job of timing our cocktails, the wine, salads and main courses. The food was just delicious and plentiful. One of our favorite go to restaurants where we bring guests from out of town.

Food was excellent, per usual. We got to the restaurant at 6:45 for a 7:00 reservation and we were not sat until nearly 7:30. That would be my only complaint from an otherwise typical, outstanding evening at Garozzo’s.

Spiedini was spectacular as always. Friendly service, however the bread wasn't served with our salad. It came once the entrees were delivered. Ran out of water...husband had to pour some of his in my glass. I always recommend this restaurant, as the service and food are typically pretty good.
