Dinner and service were very good. Garozzo's was very busy - even on a Monday night! Phil took very good care of us - from delicious bread & dipping, right on through salads, main course, dessert, Garozzo's café, and wine of course. Thanks!

Garozzo’s has the very best chicken spedini! There were 4 of us and we each ordered something different. Everyone was extremely pleased with their meals.

My wife and I had the Chicken Spideni (birthday) dinner on April 14. As always, it was so delicious and big. Our first time to eat on Harrison St. for several years since the LS restaurant closed. Our server was Cheryl (Cheri) and was very attentive, informative and kind on a very busy night. A very positive night! Thank you!!

Everything was delicious, we went for my mother’s birthday. The server said I ordered the biggest plate they had and he was lying I have leftovers for days. I will definitely be back this was my first time and I said at work where can I take my mom for dinner and someone blurted out Garozzos I’m so happy they said this place.

This place was an open table find. It was worth every penny. We had a group of 7. No problems. Personal above and beyond service. Huge portions—they will tell you half orders are available. Known for chicken spedini and it did not disappoint. All food excellent and great delicious desserts. Decor is dark in traditional style. Would go again.

As always, the food was great. I still have never been to a restaurant with larger portion sizes! One dish is usually good for at least 2 meals. We were unfortunately next to a table that had the loudest man ever dining, but hey its an Italian place, right? I will always recommend Garozzo's!

Wanting to go somewhere special for my husband's birthday we decided to go to Garozzo's Ristorante. We were a little early when we got in there but were able to get seated any way. Food was delicious and was just what we were looking for, just a little spice and had good taste. Our waiter made sure that we had everything we needed and recommended the perfect wine.

Love the food - been eating here for years. Disappointed this time in our seating. Made the reservation for a birthday dinner a week before the date and they sat our party of 7 in the back room at a table clearly meant for 5. We were so crowded and uncomfortable. Really disappointed.

My husband and I travel 2 hours each way to eat at Garozzo’s once a month. We absolutely love it there. We brought my husbands parents with us this time and unfortunately we got seated upstairs. It’s not as nice as the regular dining rooms and I’ll know in advance to ask to be seated on the street level dining room.
Everything else about this restaurant is perfect. The food is amazing and authentic.

KC doesn’t have lots of choices when it comes to really good Italian but Garozzo’s definitely pleases when you need a good dose of pasta, red wine and Frank. Very knowledgeable servers. The atmosphere is great and I love getting into older parts of KC to visit classics like this one.

Everything was handled professionally.
Greeting at the host stand and by the server was prompt, friendly and courteous.
Sat at a deuce in the bar! Served a generous pour of Makers Mark 46 on the rocks!
A young woman server was great - taking my order for Mike’s chicken and pasta correctly. She suggestive sold the lemon cake and brought lemoncello liquor to enhance the dining experience. Garazzo’s is a great old school Italian dining extravaganza.
The tv’s were showing the basketball tournament to view and Frank Sinatra music to set the mood.
The Italian bread was crusty on the outside and warm on inside.
The busboy was sharp and helped the server.
The bartender was attentive!
Glad to have had a great meal on Sunday afternoon!

Best Italian food in all of KC. I’m a New York Italian who moved here 5 years ago. To put it short and sweet, I personally think any Italian food in the Midwest is garbage so i just cook it myself. Until I found Garozzo’s. I’d take my mother there(if she ever visits and realizes I don’t live on a farm). Great atmosphere. Reminds me of some restaurants back home always playing Sinatra and 14,000 pictures of the owner in front of the sign with famous people. Food is excellent so go try it! Get the Spedini!
