The only downer was that our waiter, who seemed knowledgeable, acted and spoke like he was in a hurry. Also, when my guest described they type of drink she was interested in, he provided no suggestions and only handed her a drinks iPad. When pressed for help/advice, he demurred and insisted that she research her own drink on the iPad.

Great happy hour prices and nice selections. It's a nice setting. Not to crowded although we did go during the week it was just right.

Been to Panzano's many times, and it never lets us down. Was particularly excited to finally experience a "buffet" there, as that is where they frequently 'show their stuff'. Knew that the menu for Father's Day Brunch (and perhaps dinner too?) included the buffet, but wasn't sure what it included. Nice offering of their supremely smoked salmon with all the add-ons for a "proper" salmon tasting. Was disappointed that the goat roasting out on the sidewalk was for dinner and not brunch, but that was quickly corrected by the appearance of a beautiful dry-aged prime rib, perfectly prepared. Also a nice and varied group of choices for the main entree', but the buffet alone was worth the cost of admission. Always been our favorite, and Panzano's remains so!

We went to Panzano because it was the restaurant at our hotel; however, it came highly recommended on its own by a friend who lives in Denver. The food, service, decor were all excellent. I would definitely return on my next visit to Denver.

We were in town helping my son move. We decided to eat at Panzano based upon the favorable reviews on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. The food was excellent - fresh homemade pasta and ingredients. Traditional Italian for the most part but artfully prepared. Excellent wine list as well. Our server was helpful and attentive. My only complaint...our appetizers arrived TOO fast,before we were even served drinks. But overall very satisfied with our experience and would recommend it to others.

Went here for a Father's Day dinner. Ordered a great wine (La Spinetta) at the server's recommendation. Salads were good, entrees we ordered included Veal Scallopini, Carbonara, Pastiche (with an amazing broth), Lasagne, and Rabbit Gnocchi. All were fantastic, and were a different preparation than the expectation for each of these dishes. Our server, Ron, was excellent, the rest of the staff was very attentive with quick responses for water, bread, or a dropped utensil. Enjoy.

Business Lounge appearance, to loud large groups with people shouting, making normal conversation impossible. Average food, nice service, but with pretentious prizes as if it was the best in town, which it isn't

We have eaten at Panzanos many time in the past. We feel that the food, although quite good, is not up to its previous quality. I was especially disturbed by the fact that the restaurant did not pick up the tab for parking. I still had to pay $8.oo for validated parking. Panzanos still remains a pricey place to eat.

Although Panzano has almost always been delicious and interesting in the past, the meal that I had was very ordinary and not even particularly attractive. It was a disappointment, as I usually look forward to dining there. It was not even a tiny cut above any Italian chain. I think we'll look for a different location to have our business meals going forward.

Panzanos was a great host for our girlfriends baby brunch. The space was great - set apart from the rest of the crowd so we had both privacy and the ability to be a little loud. The food, as always, was delicious!!! The "mock"-tails were overpriced, considering that real alcohol only cost $1 more, but otherwise the food and drink were great. Service was a nice good. Our waitress appeared a little stern initially, but warmed up as the day went on.

This is a very classy restaurant that has great food and excellent service. The ambiance is good except for one important thing. The noise level is so high that it is not possible to have a conversation across a table in a booth without shouting! I measured the sound level and it was about 80-85 dB which proves my point. This was on a Saturday night between 8 and 9 pm, but it is still unacceptable to have to shout at people.

The dinner was delicious and the service was excellent. The restaurant is lovely, with perfect lighting and interesting decor. The wait staff was extremely attentive, courteous, and efficient without being intrusive. We will return, and I will recommend Panzano to friends and neighbors.

We were in Denver for a conference, and my husband and I chose Panzano for his birthday dinner. We were very happy with the food -- scallops for him and veal for me. Both main dishes were wonderfully prepared, in both appearance and taste. Our server was very accommodating, made sure that my husband's lactose intolerance was taken into account, including providing him with a separate sauce for the appetizer we shared and a substitute vegetable.
Best Brunch in Denver

Wonderful birthday dinner. Gave us a nice booth upon request at Open Table. Their signature dish the Brussels Sprouts were delicious! Scallops were cooked perfectly! Papa our server was very helpful with wine selections! Great meal

The service was outstanding, but the meals were not the usual stand-outs we have learned to expect from Panzano's. Very bland, non-descript lasagna and clam special. Same with the dessert.
Overall a good experience
Overall a good experience with the grilled tomato and prosciutto wrapped buffalo mozzarella appetizer being the best, edging out the sea scallop and risotto dish which was also very good. We would have given the experience 5 stars but the Pastiche was disappointing with the custard flavor over powering the dish and the Tiramisu was fine but far from anything special. The service was excellent.

Excellent night out
My husband and I were in Denver for a few days. Panzano was walking distance from our hotel. The wine list was excellent. Our server was very knowledgable and attentive and friendly, but not intrusive. His assistant was efficient cleaning off the table and refilling our sparkling water. The food was delicious and filling. What a great, relaxing night out!
Gluten Free Menu
We chose Panzano's for its Gluten Free Menu. Yes, an entire menu. The staff were attentive to the need for Gluten free, so they brought out bread and a gluten free bread! Great choices, not just one option, but several.

The food was so good and everything came out very fast. The desert was spectacular. Definitely a place I would go again on my next trip to Denver!
The Perfect Birthday
I was at Panzano's for the first time with family and friends to celebrate my 85th birthday. Dinner was outstanding and the waitstaff fantastic! We will return!

Very convenient in the heart of downtown. Warm atmosphere - open kitchen. The menu does not overwhelm, and there are half portions of the pasta course available. Friendly and attentive staff. Would certainly go back the next time that we are in Denver.
It was amazing
I went there for the first time to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was an amazing experience. They treated her like a queen. The food and service was amazing.
Simply put, cozy comfortable atmosphere, friendly & knowledgeable service, GREAT tasty menu with just the right amount of variety. We will definitely dine here again on our next trip to Denver!

Food was excellent, although expected the veal to be a bit leaner. Service outstanding.
Brian was our server, he was wonderful. Lasagna was the best I've ever had!! New favorite in Denver.
Made you feel special
Wonderful server - nice ambiance. We couldn't decide between two menu items so our waiter suggested two half orders! It was a perfect solution and both dishes were enjoyable!
wonderful spot for fresh, homemade pasta dishes. Very convenient to our hotel, the Marriott Residence Inn downtown. Right next door. Staff is efficient, professional and very knowledgeable. Will return in the future
Food was okay
The chef was clearly in his comfort zone with sun dried tomatoes. There wasn't much else.

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!
