This has been my third time to Panza and it never disappoints. Fantastic selection of food and wine, excellent staff, and a vibrant feel inside.

Great dinner at Panza. Both my wife and I had great meals. Veal Panza and Chicken Panza. Prices are reasonable along with good portions. Much flavor to the mealks. Good service along with friendly staff. Place very small so reservations highly reccommended. Seats about 50 people. Most all glasses of wine $6.00 which is very fair. I think they try to keep a family atmosphere by noy gauging there customers so they continue to have repeat customers like us. Cannot wait to get back.

Made a reservation and was seated next to kitchen/bathroom...yet other tables were open.
The service was less than expect, having to ask for a glass when ordering a beer? No dessert menu offered? Where’s the service?
You can get the food at many of the restaurant along Hanover.
Places like this are killing the thrill of going out to dinner in the North End.

We made reservations and even called to confirm but when we got there they said they didn’t have our reservation. We stood at the front for some time before we could get seated. Service was mediocre. We asked for a refill on drinks and the waiter forgot about it. He didn’t seem too friendly either. There was only one bathroom for guests and employees which was adjacent to the kitchen and very small dining room. I waited outside the bathroom to wash my hands and when a male employee came out and there was a distinct telltale odor that told me that he just finished some serious business in there. I chose not to go in. The food was good though, but it wasn’t mind blowing.

I went here for my birthday party but they don't allow cakes here so couldn't celebrate at the end. The food was okay, not really special. I would suggest here to come here for big portions, friends gathering, casual dinner. Cozy place.

Entrees were filling and wine was a decent price, but in comparison to other Italian restaurants on Hanover, this didn’t quite match up. Try to get a spot away from the door, as there is no waiting area in the small space and people will be waiting right the door and the opening /closing of the door brings a burst of cold air in.

I went here for my birthday and was pretty excited because I had read such great reviews. Right away our waiter was very brash and rude. He did not attend to our table properly and practically threw our food at us. Overall, the food was not that great in comparison to other Italian food in the North End. We had a variety of dishes. The appetizers were nothing special. The veal looked like something that came out of a frozen dinner. Even the way they plated the linguine was disappointing. Overall, I would not recommend this restaurant.

When we were sat(@630) we were sat at a table no farther than 2 ft away from another couple and were immediately greeted with menus and ordered a bottle of wine and an app shortly after we ordered our entrees. We had to ask for bread and we didn’t get it until we were halfway done with entrees and felt very rushed the entire time and never had our anniversary acknowledged by anyone that night

Visited Panza early on a Saturday for lunch and we were the second group there. The restaurant filled up quickly, but the service remained excellent throughout. We had our hearts set on some dishes from the main menu which were not on the lunch menu and the kitchen was able to accommodate us.
Fantastic meal from start to finish and the prices are very reasonable, making Panza a fantastic value in the North End!

I have been to Panza before and have liked the atmosphere, food and cost. However, this evening, my food, although good, was totally cold. This evening was very cold outside and I think they should have warmed the plates or something. I also felt rushed to leave as there were people waiting in line. I don’t think Panza will be my first choice in the North End in the future.

The food was great, but your reservations will be disregarded. Even though we had a reservation for 7:30pm, we had to wait on the line to be seated. The group ahead of us had a 7pm reservation and weren’t seated until 8pm.

I made a reservation for 8pm on a Saturday night. Arrived at 8pm on the dot and was told it would be a 20-30 minute wait. The restaurant was PACKED and the noise level unbelievably extreme. So my date and I left. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone - the staff were rude and unprofessional.

Panza reminds me of some restaurants in Italy, tightly packed...and for a good reason. The food is very good for a reasonable price. You can actually get a nice green salad for $6. Nothing too fussy, or avant guard, but home cooked comfort food. Points were taken off for the ambiance; not lighted for intimacy or for a special occasion. But I guess, at their prices, they have to keep people moving.

It is a very small restaurant on Hanover St. The tables are fairly close together, but not so close as to interfere with conversation. Very attentive service, the wait staff is constantly on the move. The food arrives in a timely manner and is very tasty. Definitely get a reservation if you intend to dine here. The restaurant is very small and very busy.
