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.

Overall very nice as far as food, and everything. Server was not very warm which was a let down. Also waited almost half an hour even with the reservation which is also a bit of a disappointment when you make reservations.

Excellent food and service - free CHICKEN SPIEDINI on your birthday so that is what my husband requested. Reservation was easy to get on a weeknight. They happily brought over the cake I provided. Food was hot, drinks were full, holiday music was nice touch.

The food was very good and the service was also very good. It does not make the customer feel very good when you reserve a table through Open Table and receive confirmation that everything was a go but when you arrive at the restaurant they say that they could not find that we had reservations through Open Table. We were seated right away, but it left a bad taste in our mouths.

We went the day after Thanksgiving for a late lunch and the food was fabulous. It was our teenage and young adult kids first time there and they loved the food. Great time and great place!

Our children are all out of the house and live too far away to travel home for a holiday like Thanksgiving. My wife and I therefore choose to dine out on that day. We were able to get a reservation at a time that was convenient for us. The restaurant is buffet only on Thanksgiving. The diversity of food was amazing and it was of high quality. I really enjoyed being able to get a little bit of a wide variety of foods that I really like. Something I couldn't do cooking for just the two of us. We turkey, ham, chicken, Italian sausage, meat balls, shrimp in a creamy sauce with shell pasta, sweet potatos, mashed potatoes, stuffing, excellent gravy, and a green bean casserole that had fresh green beans. The dessert selection featured pies and canolis. There were additional pasta dishes that we didn't try. My wife also had salad which was quite good.

My wife and I went for Thanksgiving. We were stuffed into a very small corner - not pleasurable experience at all. This is our 3rd but final time for holiday dining. Overall, the restaurant staff seemed hurried and overwhelmed. We were there at 11 and, many of the dishes on the buffet were already out. The flow of the buffet was crowded too. Not worth it in any way.

Had not been here for years because last experience in Olathe was awful food wise. However, my son-in-law had a birthday to celebrate and he requested Garozzo’s. So, we went for him. What a pleasant surprise it was! The restaurant on College Blvd was our choice and it was outstanding!! The food was delicious and the service excellent! We will go there again and recommend it now!

I always love Gorozzos but this time neither my husband or I liked our meals. Of course, the house salad is always terrific! However my ravioli stuffed with shrimp, crab and lobster was subpar and not creative at all. In fact I got a stomach ache in the middle of the night. My husband got the Triple play~thought it would be the 3 separate dishes side by side. Instead they were all stacked on top of each other. He brought home 75% of it and never touched it again. Well go back but order their specialties. These two dishes were subpar.

Delicious Italian meal with a great 1/2 price bottle of wine on Sunday evening. Enjoyed by all the family. Food was excellent, with enough to take home lunch the next day.
Cozy comfortable table seating and friendly no hurry service.

Took friends there for one of their birthdays. They offer free Spiedini on your birthday and he wanted Italian so it seemed perfect since he had never been there before so I made reservations. Still had to wait about 15 minutes. That's okay. Poor service, rude servers and cold food was an embarrassment for my wife and I in suggesting and taking our guests there. They haven't been real warm and fuzzy in there and we thought that maybe that's their mafia /gangsta wannabe image they portray but they almost made us feel just too uncomfortable when we brought up my guest's birthday. I told them they would want to verify his birthday with his license and she hammered it because anybody could come in here saying it was their birthday and try to get a free meal. Okay, we get it. Not a biggy but I think that must have put us a the bottom of the list for service because the food was cold and took forever. We always get a artichoke for the table and this time it was small. cold and very little butter on it. It was actually dry. She kept bringing up the license thing a few times and he kept telling her he would give it to her each time but she left with other tables items in her hands. Good food served cold makes bad food. Inexcusable. The server didn't bring entrees table side so something was weird about the whole thing. We had 3 other entrees and appetisers plus a couple cocktails each so it wasn't like we were going on the cheap. I've always liked the the food at Garozzo's but less and less each time. More than not we've fared poorly with pleasant servers for years now. The one on 135th lasted just a couple years but no surprise. I also know it's not always the servers fault but poor management. Sorry to the few really nice servers we've had there over the years. Too many other Italian food alternatives close by. I hope they get it together. The competition will be our next Italian delight. Thanks for the good years Garozzo's.

I took my wife here for her birthday on a busy Friday night. There was a short delay for reservations which did not personally bother me but had the panties of several of the snooty upper class patrons all in a bunch. These people were insufferable drunks, and the staff deserved better. The service was terrific and the food was delicious. My wife received a complimentary dessert and her meal was free since it was her birthday. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
