This restaurant is a neighborhood favorite - we love the food and service is terrific- during Covid this has become a regular destination, the outside set-up is very cozy and comfortable!
Delicious food and great service. We stayed a bit longer than closing time, but the staff was kind about it and didn’t rush us off. It was a very nice place to have a quality meal.
Always a great experience even while eating outdoors with protocols!
Not enough heaters! One in the middle of the driveway for 4 tables not enough. We got uncomfortably cold!
Wonderful dinner! The service was amazing and the food was delicious as always! It was delightful eating outside and enjoying the atmosphere on our anniversary.
Diners need to know that Corkage, pretty steep, is now @$30.00!!
Best Italian restaurant in Valley....great service, my fav!
Good food. A little disappointed that they would not budge on making a minor change to a dish that I really wanted to order.
Consistent and Always enjoyable!
The ambiance, food and service are wonderful. The atmosphere compares to a charming restaurant in Italy with festive lights and music.
Lovely patio area for dinner. Will definitely go again.
Good neighborhood date spot.
Panzanella has done much better than most in accommodating dining out with the burdens of the pandemic.
Indeed, the ambience has improved. There is much less noise, the high wall from the building next door seems to block unfriendly breezes and keeps the fall evening temperature just fine.
And the food remains as good as always.
We are eating here a few times a month. Food is great, environment is very good in spite of it being a driveway! And, while the regular restaurant is very loud, the outdoor dining is very quiet.
The food is excellent, but it is the people who work there that make Panzanella special.
As good as it gets. You could not find a better Italian restaurant in the valley!
The restaurant is amazing! The food is authentic Italian cuisine! They have a very expansive wine list as well as a full bar. The restaurant features delicious specials as well as a romantic and calming dining atmosphere. I always choose the Vongole and an aperol spritz or three. It’s a great place to dine at during the pandemic, feels very safe and since all dining is outdoor you don’t just feel like you are in some parking lot... run don’t walk to Panzanella for your next reservation and meal!
Food was wonderful.
Great to be back in one of our favorite restaurants, welcomed back by the warm staff. The outdoor dining was very pleasant. Plants and twinkly lights make the driveway (!) feel festive. Service was quick and efficient, and food was delicious (and hot).
Even seated outdoors in a renovated driveway, it was a treat to have an authentic white table cloth Northern Italian dinner experience despite the pandemic. The craft cocktails were great as were the fettucini dishes. Carry on, Drago group!
I have avoided Panzanella because it it too noisey. But the outside dining is quiet! It is a bit pricey, but the food is excellent, thus a bargain. Dining is in the driveway, but they have fixed it up to be quaint. We will return soon.
Great Italian feeling - of a sidewalk cafe without traffic zooming by...
Great food, great drinks, great atmosphere. Best outdoor dining in San Fernando Valley.
Great Authentic Italian Dishes in a cozy adorable atmosphere. The service was excellent.
This is our favorite Italian Restaurant in Los Angeles.
Food and service wonderful as always.
Atmosphere pleasant considering the circumstances.
Fabulous as usual!
And doing a great job during COVID Dining.
They have great team work!
Lovely birthday dinner
I absolutely love this place, and now with the new outside area it is even better and prettier! Music was so good.
Panzanella has always been one of our favorite restaurants - through these crazy times it has been our pleasure to patronize this fabulous restaurant - they have taken their driveway and converted it into a delightful eating space - the staff could not be better
Best Italian restaurant in LA no joke
They did great job converting alley into lovely outdoor dining with twinkle lights and good spacing. Same familiar menu w specials. Always great food
Great ambience, expensive Italian food.
The best part of the meal was the bread. I ordered the Osso Bucco with Risotto, but instead of Risotto the dish came with Rice. Raviolis were just ok, but not good enough to come back.
Try Trattoria Del Sol instead. Food is much better and less expensive. It's a small place so make a reservation.
Our favorite Italian Ristorante in Los Angeles.
Pancabella is our go to place for dinner
It is always good - the food, the staff, I love them
They are using their valet parking drive way as their new dining room and it works exceptionally well - kudos to Massimo n Magda
A shout to Victor, the bartender - making great drinks
Great food, service and ambiance!
Since COVID. We have missed dining out. We ventured out for our anniversary to Panzanella, one of our favorite restaurants. They transformed their driveway into a lovey outdoor dining venue. Although just steps off busy Ventura Blvd, the street noise was minimal. And, they excelled at delivering great good at service at their normal, exception level. We were pleased and would highly recommend.
ALWAYS AMAZING FOOD AND EXPERIENCE. LOVE THIS PLACE.
On point as always
You can never go wrong at Panzanella; food, service, ambiance
Great experience for my fiancé’s birthday! Would highly recommend
