Garozzo's Ristorante - Kansas City Ratings and Reviews
Our work team chose the original Kansas City, Missouri, location for our June birthday luncheon. Using OpenTable for reservations was great. Our server greeted us and seated us immediately. She was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable regarding menu questions, too. I'm sorry that I didn't get her name in order to specifically praise her, because she did an outstanding job with our group of seven people, with five tickets and six to-go boxes. Our meals came out with excellent presentation, and our server did not have to be asked to refill glasses or anything else. The owner/manager held the door for us as we were leaving, thanked us and invited us to visit again. Extremely pleasant, welcoming environment with wonderful food, in an atmosphere that was good for a group to still be able to talk to and hear each other. Am quite certain that our team will choose Garozzo's Ristorante for a future luncheon!
Always a good experience! I've been coming here for about 10 years and every visit is a good one! The Sicilian artichoke is probably my favorite thing on the menu! Everything I've tried here has been yummy! The waiters and waitresses are always very attentive!
the food and the service was outstanding!! where we sat was pretty rough. a little short table right in the pathway of everyone. didn't like that and the table was not level but I leaned on it so it wouldn't move anymore after becoming annoying. it was very loud but it was busy so we got over that. I will be back! it was delicious and or waiter was outstanding!
As always, the food was outstanding! I come to Kansas City for business a few times a year and Gorozzo's is a must every time! It can be a little loud at times, especially if you're seated near a large party, but the staff is attentive and the food is always fantastic! Do yourself a favor and try the Sicilian Stuffed Artichoke!
We always have a great meal at Grazzo's. I have been coming here since the early 1990s. Sarah our waitress was very attentive and had great recommendations. To get Italian food like Grazzo's you would have to drive to St Louis and visit the Hill. Thanks Mike for making your restaurant a great Italian restaurant. Cheers.
Always a wonderful dining experience! We sat in the bar area and had Katie as a waitress. She was so helpful at picking the bottle of wine. It was perfect. It was very busy and she was at our table regularly checking to see if we needed anything. The Spiedini Samantha and Shrimp Alfredo were superb! We had the Trio dessert with Cafe Garozzo! Yummy! Another lovely dinner!
This place is the best! Great neighborhood , awesome atmosphere, waitstaff on it, fabulous food! It's great for birthdays, because you get a free chicken Spedini. The red sangria was so refreshing. If you walk away hungry, then you have a problem!!! Tons of great food with leftovers for another meal or two.
Our group of seven people ordered various things for the menu and all raved about it being two of the best Italian food that they have ever had. I particularly liked the lasagna. Do you Italian bread was very delicious. Our only complaint was that the lighting was so DM that we had to use the flashlights on our phones to read the menu, but in this case it was worth using the flashlights because we had such a wonderful meal.
Wonderful meal with friends and family. Everyone had something different and we were all delighted. We had everything from great appetizers to tasty desserts. Veal, beef, chicken spedini, seafood pasta/even spaghetti and meatballs! Great service and ambience.
The food was excellent and our waitress could not have been any friendlier and helpful. She really made us feel welcome. As a Kansas transplant from St. Louis we have really been missing some good Italian food especially the salad we always ate at Rich And Charlies.
This place satisfied our homesickness and cravings for some great St. Louis Italian food!
Was a little pricey but we brought home leftovers!
My boyfriend and I heard about this restaurant while in KC on a medical trip. We happened to be in town on his birthday and were told that they offer a free meal for birthdays (no sign ups, just show your id). As this restaurant is a little pricier than we budgeted for we decided to take advantage of the offer and try a new place to boot.
It was fantastic! We went for dinner on a Wednesday evening. The place is dimly lit, but very comfy. It was a little noisier than I would've liked but that is the only down side. The serving sizes are massive-you could make them into at least two meals (you will have leftovers). The free birthday meal was awesome and there were four choices, so it wasn't pre-picked. Also, they brought a free dessert for the birthday boy.
I would highly recommend this restaurant to friends and family! Thank you for making our night special, yet affordable!
Always amazing never been disappointed.
Out of town and a frequent destination. Usually order individual entree just to try all the delicious food, but because portions are so large have leftovers for lunch next day sometimes 2 days
A "gotta try" place
I was disappointed not because of the food because it was wonderful and our waitress was awesome however, I had told them in my reservations it was my birthday. I didn't expect any free dessert etc but it really would have been nice if any of them would have said Happy Birthday especially since we flew in from another state specifically to go there for my birthday. Perhaps they just didn't write it down when I called to confirm with them however, had someone called and said I'm flying in for my birthday to have my birthday dinner at my favorite KC restaurant I would have made a point to at least acknowledge their birthday.
The food was great. We had the wrapped chicken. But! My husband had gurgling in stomach with 2 results before we even left the restaurant. Later I had terrible gas! We had to cancel our plans to go to Union Station.
We wanted some ice to put our leftovers in but our waiter refused to help us Said it was OK for chicken to be unrefrigerated for 4 hours. Well, maybe that was the case before we ate it!
Anyway despite all this we did have a good time with our friends.
