I went back to eat here after eating there three days prior. Unfortunately had an even worse experience with our waiter. He was unfriendly and rude and literally would not respond to a couple complaints we had. I am sincerely disheartened at how the level of service has gone down at this restaurant. The food is wonderful! The service has been less than okay the last few times I've gone and just plain bad the last two visits.

This is one of my favorite if not absolute favorite restaurants. This visit left me disappointed though as the service was very sub par and has been the last few times I've been. Food is beyond great, the service from everyone from management to wait staff definitely could use some improvement.

Second time to dine. Won't go back. Seems like they are cutting costs. Not good when the customer notices by the quality of the food. Tried to order a Bellini. Sent it back as it was flat Prosecco and peach syrup. Not the way you make a Bellini.

The meal was Memorial wknd Sunday. The place was busy but our server & floor mgr kept the tea and water glasses filled. The meal was delightful. Chicken Spedini is always a favorite of ours
My wife and I love the food at this restaurant. We had the Chicken Spedini and as usual it was great. If you are unsure about the wine the house Chianti is always good. Although I didn't have it this trip, the veal dished are alway a good choice. Garozzo's is the best Italian Restaurant in town. I hate to say it and I will not use a name but my server was way below the quality os staff at Garozzo's. The food made up for the poor service.
Too Loud! Poor Service! Mediocre Food!
I was so anxious to get back to eat here after living away for a few years. I couldn't have been more disappointed Even with a reservation we were seated after parties who walked in without a reservation We were seated in the bar rather than the dining room as requested, and we were told that we should have made a reservation Our server was too busy to fill our water glasses, didn't want to bring to go containers for our food, and didn't want to bring change. Our food was lukewarm at best. Not a very good return trip. Probably won't do it again. There are too many other great options nearby.

Always a great experiene. Great food and great service
great for a group
Had a group of twelve celebrating a graduation. The food and service were both outstanding, servings were huge, and it was a wonderful celebration. Would return without hesitation
My wife and two boys love Garozzos. The service is impeccable, the food and desserts are wonderful. We will be back!

Great service with a nice personality. And superb food, as always.
Food was amazing as usual
We went on Mother's day so we knew it would be a bit busy so the service was just so so, had to continue to ask for bread before getting any. Was not told on Mother's day wine bottles were not half price (that would have been nice to mention when I was ordering a bottle). All in all still a good experience.
Best Italian food in the city.

Parents' Night Out
Decided on short notice to take my parents out to dinner. Garozzo's found us a table (on Open Table, of course) right away. On arriving we were taken directly to our table. Our waiter, Chris, was very patient in waiting while my parents made up their minds. Everybody really enjoyed their meals, especially my mother who polished off six seafood ravioli. The chicken Samantha also had a good reception. We had never been to Garazzo's before; now we are sorry we hadn't. This could be restaurant to return to.
Disappointing table and service
I made our reservation a week in advance but still sat right next to the bathrooms and about 5 feet in front of the bench other customers sat to wait for their tables. We never felt like we were a priority for our waiter and service was not good. Even when our waiter was helping us he was always distracted and looking over our heads over at his other tables. We did have two children with us but that is why I made an early reservation. It would have been nice if it hadn't taken over 15 minutes after we sat down before getting bread. We had always gone to the Olathe location in the past and had nothing but positive experiences there and always felt welcome. $250+ to have people stare at us while we were eating and mediocre service will make me think twice about going back any time soon.

Nice restaurant and it's so close to home we didn't know about it until we saw the listing on open table. We had a great experience
Italian food lover's treasure
This marks the third time i have been to this restaurant. Although normally a very impressive restaurant , we waited almost 15 minutes past our reservation time to be seated. Service was slightly delayed and it took an overly long time for us to receive all courses of our dinner. However , in all fairness, there were several large groups, including groups going to high school proms that evening . Normally, you are seated at the time of your reservation, the service is excellent and the food is out in a timely manner . If you elect to visit this restaurant, especially on a weekend, please make a reservation. You will be impressed with the normally attentive service and your food will be nothing short of amazing. Enjoy !
Fun with Friends
We've dined at this location ever since they opened many years ago and have never been disappointed. We entertain out of town guests and they rave about it and ask to return on their next visit!
My wife found the eggs to be cold and the meatballs I had were ice cold it seems they were just out of the cooler. I tried some ham and couldn't hardly eat it because if how mushy it was. As far as the dessert it all tasted dry and stale. This is the 4th year we have joined you for Easter and always enjoyed it until this year. The way I feel at present doubt we will be back for any more Easter brunches

Great food alway eat here when in KC About 4 to 6 times a year
Excellent food and gracious service
The food we had was outstanding-very nicely prepared and presented. Our server was excellent and the manager helped us select a very good wine.
We went recently with a party of 8 to celebrate a milestone birthday. Our service and food were excellent. Thanks so much!

Another great meal from a great restaurant. I had an appetizer, a salad and a superb veal dish. The veal dish had a really incredible brown sauce. The sauce was just perfect for the veal, and it was not too overbearing. The salad and the appetizer were also very good. I've have never had any problems with anything here. Both the food and service are always excellent here. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Not so comfortable
Many tables were too close to others. The guy sitting behind me bumped me several times. We were seated with an HVAC duct blowing on us, and it was cold to the point that both of us had to wear jackets. I complained to our waiter, but I didn't see or hear that anything was done. Also, the noise level was high enough that conversation was difficult. The food and service were good, but with all of the negative issues, I wouldn't dine there again.

Food GREAT, . The lady manager was condescending to us. They can do much better at that position!!!!!!!!!!
Good not great
Service was just fair maybe that was because it was valentine's day. Appatiser was great, as was the lasagna, but the spicy pasta was sub-par
Valentines Eve Dinner
Since it was our valentines dinner we thought for that weekend there would be some specials. We have eaten at Garozzo's during valentines weekend before and they had specials. We have had a spiedini combo special and we asked about that but our waitress didn't seem to know what we were talking about. Oh well, we ordered a couple of spiedini entrees and as usual they were both very good. Anyway, the overall food and experience was great.

Excellent food,service was great. Will definitely be returning to this restaurant
I like the other brothers better
Dinner for two with appetizer, 2 dinners w salads (chicken and fish), one glass of house wine with tip a little under $100. Food is great but for that price point you don't feel like you got your monies worth. The guy that owns this place his brother has a twin of it and prices are the same but at least you feel like you could see a local mobster eating dinner.
Excellent service, great food, superb menu.
If you are looking for great veal parmagiana in Kansas City, Garazzo's has it done well and I would recommend their menu to anyone seeking a true Italian cuisine.
Excellent as usual
The food and service were both excellent. My wife and I always enjoy dinner at Garozzo's.
