Amazing food and great experience for a date night. We were greeted with excitement as we walked in and were seated down immediately. Brian helped with the menu and was very kind! Will definitely go back.

Accommodated my request for a booth and a window for our special 4 year anniversary celebration. Great social distance between diners. Amazing service. Unbelievable food. Even received a complimentary dessert for our special night!! A must go dining destination!

Used to dine here often before COVID. First time back did not disappoint. Staff and waiters were friendly, helpful, and efficient. Tables well spaced, quiet atmosphere.
Bolognese and Picatta Pollo both good.

We love this restaurant, but last night they were not up to their usual game. When we arrived, the hostess seemed confused as to where to sit us until we saw a set table and asked to sit there. She then proceeded to tell us we had 90 minutes at the table. Although that is clearly stated on their reservation, in these times of COVID, that is the first time and host or hostess verbalized that to us. Just a weird way to start an experience. The menu is very limited at present: apps, a few pizzas, four pastas and four main dishes. Drinks came promptly and were wonderful. Food arrived fast, warm and wonderful. Overall, the food portion of the meal was timed well and we were not rushed; but, our bottle of wine sat unopened for 1/2 the meal waitind for the hostess to open and pour it for the table. Not sure why the waiter could not do that for us.. Overall, we will go back and highly recommend you do so as well after reading this review. Ask to add proteins to your pasta if so desired until the full menu is restored.

We enjoy Italian food and will go to Panzano’s for special occasions. The service was wonderful and the food superb. The seasonal asparagus special and braised short ribs were my choice. My wife decided on a pasta but would have probably opted for a main dish from the Pesce/Carne menu had there been a couple more options to pick from (chicken/salmon/veal or the braised rib special didn’t strike a chord). Wine was great, app was great. Ambiance was ok but Covid os weird.

While the food we were able to order was tasty, they are missing all of the gluten free options that used to grace the menu. I was very disappointed to have brunch with no toast or scone option. Unfortunately, Panzano's is no longer on our gluten friendly list.

Need bread with Italian food. They should have had a Plan B. Service was good but all the disclaimers before sitting down is a nuisance. Other restaurants have the same issues but dont go overboard with verbal instructions. By now, we all know the rules for us adults

Will go again when normal returns

We had a wonderful dinner at Panzano. For appetizers we shared the Seafood Mixta (crispy, tender and plentiful) and Melanzine Parmagiana (delicious, but quite small for the $16 price). For dinner, my husband and I shared a Panzanella Salad and a Pepperoni & Salsiccia (sausage) Pizza. Both were delicious, especially the pizza, which had a crispy crust and lots of cheese and meats. Our friends both raved over their Veal Marsala. The wine list was extensive but pretty expensive...nothing under $48 per bottle. But we did find an Italian Sangiovese blend that was wonderful. We'll definitely return next time we visit Denver.

Really delightful experience again. Have not eaten here in a long time but will be returning soon. Quality of dishes and preparation was superb. The brussel sprout appetizer is a favorite. A very memorable meal. Don't let Covid-19 stop you from going out.
Thanks staff for a quality dining experience!

This was a business meal, but it would be perfect for just about any occasion. Drinks in bar area before dinner were on point. Then for the meal we had everything from a pizza, spaghetti, and a chicken dish. All outstanding! Highly recommend.

They forget to make our entrees and had to rush the order. The server actually tried to take our desserts before we even got our food. They had to rush our meal in the kitchen. My husbands pizza was undercooked. I’m shocked as this place is usually really good.

We came to Denver and Panzano was listed as a top restaurant destination downtown. We got reservations on Valentines night. OMG, this place was so good. The Bolognese pasta, salmon and prime Filet mignon were all probably the best we had ever had. Such a magical night. Would recommend.

The experience was wonderful for the most part, but I felt a little neglected by our server after he got tables that seemed to be spending more money than us. It was our first time in, and the food was phenomenal, but we had drinks before dinner and did not order cocktails nor 4 courses. We did however still order nonalcoholic beverages and 3 courses. A few tables next to us came in with fur coats and appeared to be very ritzy. The difference in conversation, menu suggestions, and overall treatment seemed dependent on social status, which was uncomfortable. We saw our server few and far times in between after he got ritzier tables. It’s not a big deal, but it was still $130 meal for us, and made me feel like it wasn’t enough for equal treatment from the wait staff. Regardless, I do believe that we will be back, but it should be of note.

My husband and I went to Panzano's for the first time this past weekend. We both agreed that it was the best pizza we have ever eaten! So light and fresh. The food/drinks are a bit pricey, which is our only complaint. But, if we are in the Denver area again, we would still go for the pizza!
