Panzano Ratings and Reviews
Greeted warmly and seated immediately even though 15 minutes early for reservation. Our waiter (nicknamed Papa) was incredibly friendly, prompt, professional and engaging. We were dining before attending a play and he made sure we stayed on time. Unasked, brought a delicious birthday dessert to the table. The meal was wonderfully prepared...one of the best dining experiences we've ever had in the Denver area and I've lived here a long time. Highly recommend Panzano.
Food was really delicious, though somewhat expensive. We may have gone overboard with drinks and dessert. Overall the staff was really friendly and attentive and the ambiance was romantic and cozy. It was truly worth every penny. There are a lot of places to check out downtown but this one was in a great spot for a pre-theater date, with close walking distance to the convention center, etc. Plenty of nearby parking on a Friday night, as its outside the busier part of downtown. Highly recommend!
I was a little nervous about the menu, a little too ‘creative’ for me, I’m not adventurous, but my friend is and I let her choose the restaurant since she was visiting from out of town. Luckily, the special was right up my alley. Filet and Yukon Gold potatoes. There were also mustard greens which I was excited to try, but they were really salty or something and I decided to stick to the steak and potatoes.
The steak was honestly the best I’ve EVER had, ANYWHERE! It had some sort of hard, crispy glaze on it that sealed the juices in and tasted delicious AND there was a giant pat of herbed butter on top that slowly melted down the steak. It was heavenly! And cooked perfectly and was nice and thick. I ate every bit along with the potatoes and was perfectly full. Didn’t need the mustard greens anyway.
The staff were all very friendly, knowledgeable and were there when we wanted them, not there when we didn’t. The Hotel Monoco looked like a lovely place to stay as well.
Overall, a great choice for my first dinner in downtown Denver in many years.
This place was wonderful for a quiet dinner. The gluten free options are amazing, with great care for my friend. The non-alcoholic drinks were divine. Option for 1/2 order of pasta was great. Our server was attentive and generous. Can't thank her enough for leaving us alone but being there exactly when needed. All the staff was great - super team. We'll be back to sit at the chef's table next time. Definitely a go-to place in Denver. Only thing that would improve is to import some of the awesome non-alcoholic wines available in Europe.
We are HUGE Panzano fans, often referring many friends and visitors new to Denver to dine here. But on Nov 11th they fell short. There was an issue with the staff as we ordered a dish for a 2nd time. We asked if meat was in the dish when remade and the answer was a emphatic "no meat". However there was meat and a 3rd different dish was made. This one was a simple spinach omelet but there was so much oil on it that it could not be finished. Def felt like they were either off their game or a new kitchen staff was on that day. We will go back but the review today did not deserve a full set of outstanding or very good ratings.
I was expecting amazing given all of the good reviews. Very disappointing. Ordered the chiopino. Hardly any seafood, very small portions. Waiter was very good, seated in the way back, very bright. Poor value for the money. There are many better places in town.
You know there's a problem when a mushroom omelet arrives and I have to use a knife to cut it!! Four of us there for brunch -- in addition to the severely overcooked omelet, my husband's dish, a strata, arrived as a soupy mess. Restaurants need to learn that they CANNOT put dishes under the heat lamps for long periods of time, which is my guess as to how we ended up with such terrible meals. Not sure Panzano gets my business for brunch again...
The service was incredible! I wasn't thrilled with my meal, but I am not one to complain. When I didn't gush over it, the server was like.. "say no more! I want you to be in love with your meal" and brought me something different. Espresso martini was divine, the Tiramasu was good, and the bolognese was fantastic. It was a great atmosphere for me, my hubby, and a friend to just talk and enjoy. Also, they didn't try to upsell us like some other fancy restaurants, which is nice since it's already like $30 a plate.
Went here on a date and everything about this place is excellent!
Service was friendly. The waiter asked if we had to be out by a certain time for anything like a movie/play/etc.
Food was delicious! The absolute best bruschetta I’ve ever had. My first time having lamb in a ravioli, but it was good. All the pasta is made fresh daily. Really good tiramisu, too!
Price might be a tad expensive depending on what you’re used to, but you definitely get what you pay for.
By far the most disappointing meal we had on our one week trip (also happened to be the most expensive). Food was mediocre at best as was the wine list. Not even the bread was good. Food came out extremely fast and was luke warm (suggesting it was prepared long in advance). Got the impression they just wanted to change the table over as fast as possible. Not a place I would ever go back to.
Second time to Panzano. Food is often creative and niche Italian. Some items are big city restaurant average though, e.g., the Tiramisu. Service was relaxed, attentive, explanatory. The seating is awkward and standard with not insignificant noise. Wine list was the best; superb!
Went for my Love's Birthday. It was a last minute reservation but we were not treated that way. The cocktails, food selection and wine list were good from beginning to end. The food was amazing. Maybe my selection was the best choice. It is noisy but not to the extent of annoying. We will put this restaurant on our favorite list.
I have always loved Panzano's but have moved away from Denver, so on my return was anxious to eat there again. I must say I loved the old interior and felt the new industrial look was cold and uninviting. The food was good as usual and the service excellent.
Went before the theatre. It is an easy 3.2 block walk. The food was fabulous. Everyone was super. We were late getting there and told the waiter this and he made sure our food was out in -plenty of time.
Everyone LOVED their food.
I will be returning, this time earlier so I can really enjoy this place.
Are used to live in Denver, and Panzano’s was one of my favorite restaurants. We were there on business, and we’re looking forward to a lovely meal at a favorite restaurant. The dinner was going very well, until we ordered dessert and hot tea. The TV arrived, and after 3 cups of hot tea, we were wondering where our dessert was. The waiter was nowhere to be found, but was noted to be waving at us from the dessert station. Once the desert arrived, I indicated to him that I thought he had been doing very well hope until that time. That was when he told me that he had waved to us from the dessert station. I suggested that he should have come to our table to advise us that there was some sort of problem with dessert. At that point he began to argue with me. Even though he said dessert would be comped, it was his attitude that spoiled the rest of the dinner. Unfortunately, I will not be as excited about returning to this restaurant as I have been in the past. The food, on the other hand was excellent!
EXCELLENT SERVICE! The drinks were fantastic, the food was incredible and the overall experience was amazing. The Brussel sprouts were to die for (and I'm not a huge fan of brussel sprouts so that's saying something). Wonderful drink options. Best Italian food I've had in Denver so far!
We thought the food was very pricey for the value and flavor. They have a good wine list. Our server was great. We both had upset stomach's about an hour after eating - this could have been due to the richness of the food - but it sucks to pay $160 for 2 people and not feel very good afterwards. They advertise a happy hour every day (including weekends) from 2-6pm but there was no happy hour so we paid top dollar for everything. It was not worth the money spent! We would not go back.

What a delightful experience, everything a restaurant should be. Amazing food, great service, nice setting. Had the pumpkin Danish and panzano eggs Benedict, both were scrumptious. Coffee never empty which is a huge plus with me. The only upsetting part was that I was too full to finish my food and I was catching a flight right after and I couldn't take it with me, hah. One of my favorite places in Denver, I'll be returning my next trip! Delicious..delicous..delicious!
I was visiting from Chicago for my girlfriends birthday. She loves Italian food so i thought Panzano would be perfect. I was not disappointed. The food was amazing, the service was excellent and most importantly they made it a birthday to remember. If you like good Italian food look no further.
