Had we realized it was prom night we might have avoided a reservation. We were greeted in a rude manner and seated in the bar. Service was very slow and while relatively pleasant, sloppy. No offer of a wine list after a 20 minute wait. We had to request the removal of the menus after our food was served,etc. We had one app, a total of 2 beers, 5 glasses of house type wine and 4 pasta entrees for a $200.00 tab that included a 20% tip. The food was ordinary at best and the lasagna was a gloppy blob. The sauces were congealed as the food was not hot when served. We then had to finally request the return of our credit card after our server was giving us the obvious eye as to why we were hanging around. We left without any acknowledgement at the front door. We did not address the issues at the time as we felt like poor staffing was an issue. I hate leaving negative reviews but I can’t believe this was Garozzo’s first busy night and we left with little reason to recommend or return.

Had 2 waiters that got a little busy/confusing. Gave the check to our guest instead of me, after leaving instructions not to, so that was disturbing. Was also pretty noisy which is usually not the case.

Delicious food. Top notch service. No mention made of our special occasion—anniversary—as other places do with a complimentary dessert. Manager checked several times to see if everything was ok—it was. Fun dinner!

This was our second trip to Garozzo's and if we lived closer we would be there at least three or four times a year. The pasta is simply lovely, the dishes are seasoned well. The chef has a nice touch; if you like Italian food of any kind you will find something to like on this menu. The decor is simple and elegant and the servers knew the menu and did a great job. We come to KC from the Twin Cities of Minnesota where we have lots of dining choices. When we are in KC, we have lots of choices. However, any time we are in the Overland Park area we will do our best to visit Garazzo's. It is that good!

When I made reservations, which the website said was required, I didn't expect to have to wait. The situation was that I had arrived early, they have a policy not to seat partial parties. This is understandable and was not a problem as it gave me time to look over the wine list, and partake of a glass. But having to wait approximately 20 min once my party arrived (on time), did annoy me somewhat, however the waitress was very personable without getting caught up in banter. She further was knowledgeable enough about the extensive wine list to make an excellent suggestion. Her only slip was an untimely refill on one of my guests soft drink. So ok nothing away from her total service or my satisfactions. Surprised that it's location is in a strip mall, but this in no way takes away from the over all outstanding dining experience. This is a gem in the Kansas City crown.

$14.00 for a Titi’s Martini is ridiculous high price. The Spedini just isn’t as good as it used to be. When I reserved I noted it was a special occasion (birthday). But nothing was done or said about it. The downtown location is an entirely different dining experience. You should rename the Corp Woods location do it doesn’t continue to water down the reputation

We dined at this restaurant for my bday dinner. The service was outstanding, but unfortunately, the food was very under seasoned. I generally tend to prefer less salt on my food; however, my lasagna and my husband’s spaghetti and meatballs desperately needed it. I added crushed red peppers to the lasagna to try to add a little and it didn’t really help.

Garozzo's is one of the truly fantastic dining experiences of Kansas City. You can't get better Italian in Kansas City, and you'd be hard pressed to find better outside of KC too. The Bisteca Modiga is to die for, but my personal favorite is the Tortelloni Gina. So many great things on the menu and a relatively reasonable price for such an upscale spot.
