    The restaurant wasn't too packed, and the servers were very nice. However, the food was quite salty... we couldn't finish most of it just because of how salty it was.

    Panzano used to have one of the best eggs Benedict in all of Denver. They recently redid the recipe now it tastes like something you would pick up at IHOP. Restaurant was dirty from the previous night and plates stayed on tables for quite a long time. I feel if they cannot do brunch they way they did they need to let it go and only focus on dinner.

    The food was only pretty good. My pasta carbonara came lukewarm while my husband’s bolognese pasta was piping hot. The noise level was high but tolerable until a table of 4 couples started a very loud conversation-even yelling across the table. I thought management should have calmed them down for the benefit of other patrons trying to enjoy their dinner.

    Pleasant evening with clients and team members. Good food and service. Lovely menu with many choices. Everyone had something different and all were excellent. We would be happy to come back for another dinner but would prefer a table at the front of the house so we would request that the next time.

    Went for my birthday and was overall disappointed. The food was way too salty. I ordered the carbonara and it tasted pretty cheap and too salty to even finish. My boyfriend ordered the steak, which was good but also too salty.

    I had a lovely dinner at Panzano -- probably the best solo dining experience I have ever had. It started with being seated by a lovely young woman not in some out of the way place but at a spacious booth overlooking the street. The waiter soon arrived and I ordered a Milano Spritz, which was a great way to start the evening. I decided on the Chef's Tasting Menu for dinner with the wine pairings and it did not disappoint! Portions were ample but not overwhelming as were the wine pours. The meal consisted of Cozze (mussels) paired with a suave; Ravioli di Robiola paired with a Chianti; Piccata Pollo paired with a Barbera; and Chocolate Eclairs paired with Moscato. Service was paced just right and the waiter and assistant wait staff was attentive, professional and knowledgeable about the food and wine but not overbearing or supercilious. Could not have asked for a better evening to savor some delicious food and wine and watch the comings and goings on 17th Street. Will return when I am in Denver!

    Has for sure gone down hill the past two years. Over cooked pasta, very poorly assembled ‘carbonara’. Service was excellent though and maybe that was just my dish. Sadly won’t be returning after many years of patronage.

    Everything was perfect at Panzano. Our meal was exceptional, from soup to salad to entree to the final delight - homemade pistachio gelato. Our wait person was friendly and accomodating and the atmosphere was conducive to having conversation. We cannot say enough about our evening. We will definitely be returning and have already recommended Panzano to our friends. Yum!

    37th wedding anniversary for parents. Caesar salad the best I ever had, and the pasta bolognese was the best I have had. My husband loved the bolognese as well and he has had several in Tuscany, Italy. Wonderful experience!

    Panzano promotes itself as an "Award-Winning Italian Restaurant". Unfortunately, while they may have received awards, in reality Panzano is nothing more than another sad entry into the contemporary competition among chefs to be the most avant-garde using the most arcane ingredients in the name of nouveau cuisine. Having been raised by my immigrant family from the Piedmont region of Northern Italy, I am very well acquainted with authentic cuisine of the region. Having been entirely disappointed by my entree on a previous visit (Fruitti di Mare - with squid ink spaghetti? Really?) I carefully perused the menu for entree offerings that were simply authentic as opposed to gratuitously creative, but to no avail. While the appetizers (calamari and shrimp, and fried brussels sprouts) were quite good, our Caesar salads were bland and were only moderately redeemed by the excellent white anchovies. Since my wife dearly loves traditional picatta, we opted to try the chicken picatta (Picatta Pollo). Disappointingly, the standard hallmark flavors of picatta, lemon and capers, were entirely absent. The "half chicken" was bland and consisted of only legs and thighs. Having eaten authentic gnocchi prepared by my grandmother and aunts my entire life, I found the gnocchi in this dish unrecognizable, flavorless and entirely inedible. Rather than risk two disappointing entrees, we had opted for a safer alternative for our second choice - the Salsiccia pizza. Unfortunately, even the pizza was rendered inauthentic with an off flavor in service of culinary creativity. If pretentious nouveau cuisine appeals, by all means Panzano fits the bill. However, if authentic Italian fare using simple ingredients well prepared is your preference you will be disappointed by the offerings at Panzano. For those staying at Hotel Monaco, be forewarned that the Panzano bar closes at 8pm mid-week and 9pm on weekends. Two visits to Panzano are quite enough - we won't be back.

    I would have given all 5a but they ran out of food. We got there towards the end of the buffet time. They assured us when I made the reservation that they would have ample but they ran out and did not refill. Food was stale and not hot. Love Panzano. Will not stop going but I hope they will not let this happen in the future when they have a buffer brunch. Father’s Day is calming up!

    No one came over when we were seated to describe the buffet, what beverages were available, etc. I was told they did not have iced tea, and that is a first for me. We needed assistance during the meal, and I made eye contact with our waiter several times while he was chatting with a coworker. We received the bill and were only then informed that they were adding an automatic 20% tip. Based on this experience, I would not recommend Panzano to friends.

    Panzano is a gem of a restaurant in Denver! The services is always top notch and the food just keeps getting better and better with each menu change for the seasons. We came in for Easter brunch and had a wonderful time. The chefs were so much fun to talk to at each station and the dessert area was decadent and beautiful! You can really tell this restaurant takes care of not only their guests, but their staff too. Everyone seems genuinely happy to be there. I can’t wait to go back!

Seemed like a nice place to work. Likewise many Italian heritage individuals around the restaurant were helpful in explaining dishes and guided choices. Wine was affordable as well.
