We had an excellent server, who helped us plan out evening walk. The Caesar salad is to die for ... I added shrimp for a protein and it was so delicious!
Love this restaurant!
Meals at Panzano have become a tradition for my annual visit to Denver to visit with friends. We simply wouldn't miss either dinner or brunch. We love the ambiance, the service has always been terrific, and we've loved the food every time. The brussel sprouts appetizer is one of the best, and we all had pasta this year. We'll be back!

We have been going to Panzano's for several years now and we have NEVER been disappointed in the food or service. As usual Ms. Laurie Lees our server and now our friend was SOOOO great and made our special day even more special. The Italian is the best in Denver based on our opinion.

We went for our daughter's graduation dinner and were impressed by the food and the quality of service. There were interesting twists on classic dishes and good suggestions from the staff. Calamari was some of the best I've had - tender and light. Wish we'd still had some room for dessert.

Great lunch experience. The waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and made excellent recommendations. They have a semi-private round table dining space that was excellent for our group of 7; however, it could have seated up to 10 or 12.

When friends come in from out of town & want Italian, this is where I take them. Great service & food, I've never had a bad experience, ever!! Very accommodating with special requests!

This is the third time my wife and I have been to Panzano's. It is still definitely one of the better Italian restaurants that we've been to in Denver. It's a bit expensive, but well worth it for a special occasion. The wait staff are very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We had the calamari for an appetizer. It comes with a spicy aioli and was quite tasty. My wife had the Scallopini di Vitello and I had the Pastiche. Both were excellent. I thought the Pastiche was exceptional. The ragu was not overly powering on the tomatoes and the cinnamon gave it a nice sweetness. All were delicious. Finally, we had cannoli for desert and it was great, too. Finally, we like the fact that this restaurant uses organic food as much as possible and is eco-friendly. While this restaurant is a bit pricey, we will be returning for special occasions for sure.

Great Sunday brunch at Panzano. Creative menu with many great choices. Our group of eight enjoyed our pastries, pastas, eggs benedict, strata, and of course...the bottomless mimosas!

delectible (sp?): surpassed expectations! Our prior brunch experiences had let us know this would be a memorable evening. But what an understatement. Thanks for the part you played in making our evening such a success!
Exceptional food and presentation
Could not be better, from the online reservation to a wonderful menu. Chef's presentation did not disappoint Will be back
Another excellent meal at Panzano
Had dinner at Panzano before the CSO. Excellent meal and service as always. Sat at the Chefs' counter for the first time. Fun to watch the chefs in action. Had the lamb Ragu, same as last visit. Excellent dish!

We've been coming for years and never have been disappointed; more often thrilled! Many of today's chefs get sidetracked by "creativity of presentation" while missing badly on creating great to eat food. That has never, in twenty or so visits, never been the case at Panzano. Thank you Elise (sp?)

One of the best happy hours in town. Great apps. Dinner menu has something for everyone and all prepared and presented very well. A can't miss for a business dinner.
Great service, food & atmosphere, gf options
My husband and I got together with another couple the other night - and we had such a good time at Panzano! The food was excellent (and I am very picky) - and they had lots of gluten free options for me! And my non-gluten free husband was very happy as well. The waiter was funny and very helpful with both our drink and food choices. They have an extensive cocktail menu - and we loved every course of food. Each table feels very private - but everything is actually close together - not sure how they achieved that feel, but I really like it :)
Both salivating from the moment we walked in.
Prior to each and every trip, in which we scrimp and save for, my wife and I choose to eat out before we launch our vacation. I must share with you that we've just had the most amazing meal in quite some time. And it was truly, the perfect beginning to a new adventure. We were both salivating from the moment we walked in to Panzano's. And we were more than satisfied with both of our meals (including, the delicious Lamb Ragu and flavorful Agnello alla Griglia , coupled with the crispy calamari, and finally the more than elegant Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino). I cannot stop raving about this wine! Service was top notch and always around if we needed anything! A special thank you goes out to Matt, yours and our top-notch bar manager, for creating such a outgoing standard of excellence with our service. Matt was very personable, and highly enjoyable. More than reason enough to return here, but really everyone (from our hostess, our waiter, to the very honest and nice gentleman who cleared our table and diligently filled our water), they all let us take our time to thoroughly enjoy each and every bite with a smile! We cannot thank you enough, for such a pleasurable evening out!! This place does not disappoint!!!
Best Meal in a long time and I eat out every week!

Good food...good prices...all around good time.
I went for mothers brunch. Although it was a pricey, it was well worth it!
Third time here in 4 months and I live in Utah!
We stayed at the Kimpton on our way to our home in Utah in January and had a fantastic dinner with friends. Came back for the unfortunate AFC Championship game a week later when my team lost but I consoled myself with dinner here again. Then we came again on our way back to Maine on Saturday because it's the only place I want to eat when in Denver! The brussel sprouts are a must. The bread is to die for. The Pastiche is so delicious that even though you are full halfway through eating it, you just keep going until it's gone and you are unbuttoning your pants! My husband had the Ragu di Agnello and he said it was the best pasta dish he ever had. Our friend had the scallopini de Vitello and he loved it. You can't go wrong with any dish. My favorite place!

We very much enjoyed the outstanding service the staff provided us. We could not ask for better. The food portions were perfect. This makes it possible to have appetizers and dessert.
An easy decision
Our group of 4 went to Panzano's prior to a night at Opera Colorado. Reservations were made in early March. Our requirements were that our selected restaurant must accept reservations, be within walking distance of Opera Colorado, and offer a great wine list. All of our expectations were met and more. The food was simply outstanding. The bottle of chianti was perfect. After we made our first wine selection the waiter offered another selection and he was able to back up his recommendation. What was encouraging was that the wine he recommended was $5 LESS a bottle than the wine we had first chosen. The waiter said that it "simply goes down a bit better." Our group was incredibly well taken care of and we will be recommending Panzano's to absolutely everybody. Your rating system has a category of "value" I gave this 5 stars although when I go out for a nice meal the monetary value is not the first thing I'm concerned about. I am ready to spend $$$ for great food and service.

Nice ambiance and people. Not good value. The lasagna has a very sweet sauce, our server did not offer and fresh parmesan or pepper....disappointed overall
Great Service excellent food
The service was unbeatable. we had two fully attentive people helping clear and fill water the whole time. Food was excellent but the service is the reason to come back
Great lunch spot
Panzano's does an excellent job for business lunches. The noise level is moderate so you can actually have a good conversation. The service is impeccable and the menu is quite varied so everyone is bound to find something they will enjoy.
Took my daughter to Panzano for lunch. Food and service were excellent. They treated her to a special dessert since it was her birthday. Overall a very enjoyable experience.
The best Eggs Benedict on the planet! The base is polenta cakes with Fontina, topped with Capricola, eggs, hollandaise and pesto. I told my husband he could take me back there ANYTIME!
Excellent night all around!
Loved the atmosphere at Panzano's even if it is in a hotel. It's separate entrance makes it feel completely stand-alone. My only complaint was access to the bathrooms. You had to walk to the far end (hotel end) of the restaurant, into the hotel lobby, and downstairs one level for the restrooms. The food was amazing (Brussel sprouts app, mushroom crepe app, and duck gnocchi!!). Absolutely delicious!!

Food is pricey but AMAZING!
Highly recommend! I thought the food was exceptional and well worth it! Chad at te bar is a master.....get him to whip something special to him.
The grilled Cesar salad was incredible and the wine list had a great variety and good prices. Our server (Mike) was attentive without hovering. I took some folks for New Orleans and they were impressed. Great place to go!
Excellent as always
Another great meal at Panzano, thanks again for making our night special.
