The service was poor but the food was very good. We got our first course before we even got our drinks or water. It's very unfortunate for the price they are charging. The service should've been much better.

We were kept waiting 45 minutes past our reservation time, with absolutely no concern or apology for the delay. We stood there and waited and waited. No place to sit, no place to get a drink, no complimentary drink offered (though our complaints to the waitress led to waiving corkage fee). True, we were a party of eight, but the previous time, a party of four, we were kept waiting thirty minutes, again with no concern at all.

Never coming back.

After waiting an hour for our food I was served cold soup. I sent the cold soup back - because it was cold - and it was brought back to me with a scalding hot plate and lukewarm soup. I'm perfectly capable of microwaving soup at home, I don't need to go out to do that.

The other food was passable, the pasta was freshly made, the sauce was okay. I'm not sure why this place is crowded. Clearly, people are having different experiences than I did.

Spent family birthday dinner and it was superb. We eat semi regularly at Panzanella and it never disappoints. We had an early reservation and it was perfect. We left just as the room filled up and noise level rose to un comfortable level

Way too loud. Food was terrific but the deafening noise level made for an unpleasant dining experience.

This continues to be one of the best restaurants in the Valley or City. It feels like home, only the food is better.

Great restaurant and food, HOWEVER, the menu on OpenTable was extremely out of date. Many offerings were not on the menu in the restaurant at all. WORSE than that is nearly everything that is on the menu in the restaurant is SIGNIFICANTLY more expense than in the online menu. For example, the minestrone soup was listed online as 6.95. Restaurant charged 9.95. Same for all the entrees, about $3 or more each. Pasta wasn't 16.95, it was 19.95. Really surprising that there was such a difference. Really changes the affordability of the restaurant when you bring your family.
