Went for the KC restaurant week. They changed their menu without a notification. The service was mediocre at best and the food was the same. The waitress even told us maybe we shouldn't eat here because we were asking questions about the menu.

We made the lunch reservation for the Restaurant Week. However, when we arrived, the waiter made us have their Sunday brunch by not bringing us menus nor greeting us. We observed other customers came after us, and found out that waiters would not offer the restaurant week menu to customers until the customers demanded to see one. The food was as plain as average school cafeteria lunch. The experience was very disappointing. We won't return to this restaurant.

Really disappointed in our trip to Garozzo's. Our food took an HOUR to reach the table. Our server had a few tables in our section, but the restaurant was not so busy that the kitchen should have been backed up.
No apologies either. Won't be returning any time soon.

Warm fresh bread, excellent main chicken dish with the cognac sauce. Soup was mediocre. The veal/beef crepe with red sauce was fantastic!

We love Garozzo's! We've been celebrating birthday's here for at least the past 7 years. The food is always amazing and the service is always excellent.

We went here during restaurant week but ended up ordering a special the waiter suggested, a little of several dishes. We were both glad we did, excellent flavors and mix. The wine was excellent as well. We stayed and talked for hours, literally, and the wait staff was gracious and checked on us occasionally but we never felt hurried. This was a real treat.

I received a lot of kudos for my restaurant choice for a JCCC Red Hat outing. Most were not familiar with the restaurant and I feel will venture out again to this location for events that they have.

The service was great! The food was delicious! It's a nice ambience inside the restaurant. We are lucky to have you so close by and in our area.

Sincerely, Berni Freeman

Exceptional food as expected. I took my husband there for his birthday celebration and we were not a bit disappointed with the delicious dishes. The only thing that somewhat spoiled the night was the service. We were put in the corner and left forgotten. Yes they were busy, but our server was nowhere in sight half the time.

Disappointed. We moved here from St. Louis and heard this restaurant was like home, but it was way overpriced and not nearly as good. The quality of food was truly lacking. The calamari was not good at all. Houlihan's has better calamari! The price for a simple pasta was shocking. Our server was friendly and the dessert was tasty, but those were the only highlights.

We came in from out of town and used open table to find this neighborhood Italian restaurant. Classic and clean with great attentive service. Potions are large and we needed them to box up what we could not eat. Food was hot and tasty. We will definitely come here again when are in town.

Went to Garozzo's Overland park for aa dinner date and the waiters were awesome. They were quick with service. They made a few great suggestions and made sure we were happy the whole time. They didn't rush out like most sit down resturants. I love it and only havse good memories at Garozzo's.

As always, Garozzo’s was great. Free spiedini on your birthday always makes this a great place to celebrate. Cool atmosphere. Garlic dip and fresh bread always a good start. The food is always fresh and consistently tasty. Never had a bad meal there.

Next year headed to downtown location for our office Christmas party. Worst server we had in years at a group function (ridiculous attitude...like we were asking for the moon when all we needed was BASIC service). Quality of food below that served at downtown location. Had to wait 45 min to get seated at out 6pm reservation time.

Both the food and the service are outstanding. Speaking of service, I couldn't decide between the veal parm and the chicken spiedini. When I asked our server his thoughts, he said "how about half of both"! Great idea - I loved them both. And, this simple comment (and follow-through) will have me back well before I'd have otherwise planned. Plus, the portions are ample, so we had a great meal from leftovers the next evening.

Recently moved back to KC after living away for almost 20 years and needed a Garozzo's fix. Hadn't been in over 15 years and was pleasantly surprised to find the same great service and food. Outstanding food with a great atmosphere.
