Every time we eat here, we've had a completely wonderful experience. We've not had any complaints so far. The staff are gracious & prompt. The food has always been pure perfection. The seating can be a little cramped but we don't mind. Absolutely must try Cafe Garrozzo after dinner :)

The calamari has to be the best in town. The same goes for the very generous serving of chicken spedini (Samantha). Great salad & bread and butter. Excellent service from Phil who went above & beyond. Would highly recommend to anyone who loves great Italian food.

I've always loved Garozzo's. Love the food, love the atmosphere and love that it's in my old neighborhood. What I was disappointed in is the downsizing of the menu. The chicken parm is no longer on the menu as well as other favorite dishes we've always enjoyed. My girlfriend mentioned it to our attendant and I was pleased that the chefs still made it for her but I also noticed that the dish was much smaller than it was in the past with the same price. That was the only disappointment.

This is our FAVORITE Italian restaurant. And we are Italian! It is excellent food, marvelous service and just what you expect in decor. Family authentic photos and " the greats" Italian singers serenading you in the background. Candlelight and ambience Italian style you shouldn't pass up!!

I made a reservation for 2 for my anniversary which ended up being 6 since they added extra tables to stuff everyone in there Could not even have a private romantic dinner since we was so close to each other. The staff could not even hardly get around to help tables not a good night at all Ordered appetizer and got it at same time as dinner which made it more uncomfortable to eat since we had no room on table to barely move with all the food on table at same time. Said something to the girl at front desk and she said and I quote. Well you done anyways we need to get the next guest in. Really!!!! Oh well. Not at good dinner experience

If you have never eaten Italian you are missing out by NOT visiting Garozze's! A dining experience! Excellent food and excellent atmosphere. But your typical restaurant. But a warning--make reservations. Small, cozy and very busy.

Garozzo's is a favorite of my family. Every New Year's Eve we pick a place to eat as a family. This year it was Garozzo's. We enjoyed the atmosphere and our family time. The food was excellent and Vinny our waiter was awesome! A good time was had by all! Highly recommend this restaurant!!!!

Food and service was great. Music was a bit loud. found ourselves talking over it several times. But not a huge deal.
Meal had good flavor, little spicier than I expected, but with a name like diablo sauce, I should've heaved the warning. Still a great meal.

Always a pleasure to eat at Garazzos. Service was quick, efficient and excellent. We were seated early and the place filled up quickly but everyone recieved attention. It was our 30th anniversary dinner and I was comped a glass of Proseco from the bar. Thanks for your kindness. I will always compare all other Italian restaurants to yours and the always come up short.

My husband and I brought his parents and two of our 3 adult children, and also ordered some to go for our other son who had to work, there for early dinner at 4:00 pm. So delicious, love the chicken spiedini's! The wine selection was very good. I am so glad I. An get your chicken spiedini's and sauces at Hy-Vee or Hen House when I can not get to your restaurant.
The first time we tried your food was at the Italian Festival at Zona Rosa, I'm glad we did. Thank you, Sheila

This place is not just a gem for Columbus Park, this is a must for anyone in KC. Versatility is the name of the game here. Catering to everyone from young to old, big groups or small, casual or formal - no one seems out of place at Garozzo's. Be warned that the portions are huge. For smaller crowds early afternoon is best, but make a reservation whenever you go. The family that runs the place put a lot of effort into being authentic and in an area with a strong Italian community there is no room for fakers. Yes those pictures are the owner's family. As with anything in Columbus Park/River Market, parking can be an issue.

We always select Garozzo's for special family occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. The food is always fresh, authentic, and so delicious. Wait staff is friendly, and ambience is unbeatable. This is our favorite restaurant.
