    Ate here before COVUd. It was wonderful. Last night the food was very salty. We were very disappointed. They did not bring bread with the meal either but we saw some in other tables as we were leaving. Would not go back.

    Focaccia was a small loaf of bread. Panzanella was also unusual, with apples and fruit it wasn’t Italian at all. The fish was excellent.

    Panzanos has been one of our favorite restaurants for years. The service was great but the food was terrible. I was so disappointed that one of my favorites has gone downhill in the quality of their food. We used to do the chef table before Covid and always enjoyed the amazing Italian food. Last night the manager was rude and I couldn’t even eat my entree it was so bad. I ordered the Di Parma and I would not have it again.

    Service was great. The bolognese was good but I’m a bolognese connoisseur so I thought it could have been less salty and more meat. I’m disappointed they no longer offer gluten-free bread. Great wine. Had the J Lohr Hilltop.

    We went to Panzano to celebrate our anniversary and first date night since having our daughter and it was an outstanding experience. Our waiter, Carlos, took great care of us, made wonderful recommendations, and made it a pleasant evening. The food was outstanding, and I especially appreciated the ample gluten free offerings!

    Hadn't been to Panzano for several years, but the food was as good as we remember. Service was exceptional. Our server was fantastic - friendly and prompt. Our water glasses were never empty, and the head chef helped deliver our meals. When we needed to run to make our Colorado Symphony performance, they turned the bill around immediately.

    A disappointing dinner. The server was knowledgable, attentive and competent, but that was all that was really nice. First course portions too large for an individual (though the fritto misto was good). Pasta with shrimp and (supposedly - I didn't find any) crab was seriously overcooked and gummy. The wine ordered from the not-that-long list turned out be gone. Nothing was really bad, but then, nothing was good enough to make me want to return.

    We had an exceptional Christmas Eve dinner! Everyone including the kids were very happy with their meal. The panzanella salad was delightful. The Bolognese was rich and comforting. Hubby and I had the tasting menu and it was exquisite. The bottle of wine our waiter helped us select was perfection! Thank you for a truly lovely evening.

    Food was awesome, so very tasty. The service was also great, attentive without being too much. On complaint, shortly after being seated (just my wife and I) a family with two young children was seated right next to us. The restaurant was not very full and the children were loud with the parents making no effort to quiet them. The staff was very accommodating when I asked for a different table, but really, for a restaurant with fine dining and nice ambiance they could do better keeping families with young children separate from couples and other adult groups wishing to have an enjoyable, quiet dinner.

    In the covid-era of dining, Panzano has given us faith in the concept of a dining "experience" again. The food here has always spoken for itself (it has been named one of America's best restaurants), but it's their service that should be considered the crown jewel. From the minute you walk in, their service game is arguably the best in Denver. We returned to Panzano after many years away to celebrate our engagement (we got engaged like an hour before dinner) and the entire experience was so memorable thanks to our AMAZING server, Carlos (jr). Panzano ended up being such a big part of our engagement story, that my future in-laws requested to eat here last night with us so they could experience it for themselves. We requested Carlos and, not only did he remember us (down to what we ordered), he greeted our table with a round of champagne welcoming us back. Once again, the food was phenomenal and the service was out of this world. I would give a million stars if I could, but since I cannot I will instead recommend Panzano and Carlos (jr) to everyone who will listen. Panzano has jumped to the very top of our list for a special night out, and we look forward to returning with more friends and family! Thanks for being a part of our special night and continuing to be apart of our lives!

    Panzano's was once upon a time a classy place, with a pretty extensive menu. This time, it was so disappointing. Wait staff in tight leggings, bare midriff, and sneakers, a much reduced (to a single page) menu, not even champagne available - only prosecco or belini's. The food was good, but not what it was pre-Covid. I know it's hard to get staff, etc now, but it was still a disappointment, particularly since we had enjoyed Panzano's in it's classier days and this was a special occasion for us.

    Truly an experience above others. Service was impeccable and a refreshing reminding of what excellence looks like! I have not had such service in Colorado. Food was equally delicious. All the appetizers, the octopus were perfect and they went out of their way to accommodate my gluten allergy (with an entire menu)! My son who likes to order completely OFF menu loved his dish! My duck was likely the best I have had…and my picky husband LOVED his bolognese. Only recommendation is for a the decor to be updated/renovated. Will definitely be returning.

    We went for dinner and it was a great location in restaurant. We got a bottle of wine to share and then the Bolognese and eggplant. Eggplant was overpowered by the focaccia and a little too cheesy for me. Bolognese was good. Serving staff was wonderful! We also have been coming for breakfast each day and that has been wonderful. Ryan is a great server!

    The Brussels sprouts with ground up pistachios had amazing balance. We had the Risotto and braised bison short ribs paired with a red and white wine. The tiramisu and caramel apple cake are worth the trip alone. Will definitely be back.

    Went for happy hour. Drinks are good selection and reasonably priced, but the food choices aren’t great and portions were a joke. $12 for pizzas so tiny that entire thing is basically the size of one normal slice; miniature salads you could eat with 2 forkfuls for $7-9. Everyone understands that happy hour food may not be full dinner sized portions, but the price vs what you get is a really poor value. Pazzano used to have a good happy hour food menu with fair portions for the price, but that’s definitely changed: I wouldn’t recommend going here unless you want to spend $50 for 2 people on a couple tiny, thin crust overly salty pizzas and salads that could fit happily in a coffee cup (add drinks and you’ll be out $70-80). That’s not happy hour to me. PS we thought about getting a couple pasta dishes off the dinner menu but they are over $30 for ravioli or a plate of noodles. No mangos here!
