    Using open table was very easy. Our table was ready 15 minutes before. We ate baskets of delicious bread. The wine and beer selection was extensive and reasonable. Veal Panza was delicious. I had it with linguine and my husband had the penne. Their specials were unique. Can’t wait to return!

    I chose this restaurant for 5 others. They all loved that it was authentic, not trendy. Prices were reasonable.It is fairly small with well prepared dishes,delicious bread and great waitstaff. The waiter could not give couples separate checks but on the one check he grouped the orders appropriately and even totaled each two orders! Nice job! Cute restaurant too! Try it!

    Good food. Nice service. Casual setting and very popular. Large portions. Nice appetizers especially goat cheese and mushroom spring rolls with honey. Bruschetta was also wonderful. Can't go wrong. Lovely setting in the heart of Little Italy.

    The service was incredible! The food was alright. Their panza dish was less than adequate and sauce was very watery. For it to be a dish the restaurant is named after I expected more. Fair price on wine selection. The mussels were delicious. Chicken Parmesan was good. Would eat there again but they could improve.

    Was hard to get a hold of service people and ended up not being sat until 15-30 minutes after reservation time. Otherwise everything was really good, they just seemed a bit understaffed or behind on reservations.

    Excellent service did not make up for the price difference listed on Open Table vs menu that was given to us. For instance, the salmon dish is listed at $19 on open table, but menu price is $28. When asked about the discrepancy, the server replied, “we are using the dinner menu today”. The restaurant should have a lunch menu and a dinner menu on Open Table. This is very misleading. I ordered a shrimp pasta special. It was delicious and well seasoned. The other two in my party ordered the seafood risotto. It was bland, and the shrimp were over cooked.

    The outdoor seating was very thrown together. Especially considering how many restaurants in the North End have very cool outdoor settings. Otherwise, the food (we were there for lunch) was excellent. The service was friendly.

    Never a disappointment! Food is fresh, expertly prepared and so very reasonable for the large portions. Has the feel of eating in your Grandmother’s kitchen. Appetizers were greens and calamari, entrees were seafood risotto and lobster ravioli. Our vegan daughter was able to have the butternut squash ravioli with a few adjustments. It was delicious!

    Panza came highly recommended by several friends and colleagues. The food was absolutely amazing and surprisingly affordable for the North End. However, I was a little disheartened with how our reservation was handled. We arrived slightly early, and were told they were waiting for our table to leave. Half an hour later, which was now 15 minutes after our reservation time, we still hasn't been seated. Another party, who had a reservation 15 minutes after our reservation time, was then called into be seated. We still waited another 10 minutes for our table. Given that a member of my party has some mobility issues, which makes it difficult to stand for long periods of time, this soured our experience slightly.

    My family enjoyed our outdoor dinner at Panza over the weekend. The food is basic but good. The salad only had lettuce, which I thought a little strange. Luckily, we all like lettuce a lot. The server was friendly and attentive. So happy to be eating al fresco!
