I visited in July 2016 while on family vacation. I really enjoyed this place! The building was cool and the staff was very friendly. They had a bunch of options for pizza, some were very unique, some not as much. The food came out pretty quickly and I really enjoyed my pizza! I would recommend this place if you're looking...

Great brick oven pizza and Italian fare. An old church that was converted into a restaurant. Call ahead to get preferred seating. BYOB with seasonal dishes. They just added a new inside waiting area in the basement. Bring your own wine opener, they supply the glasses. Meals are not over priced and portions are more than ample. Always a fun... More

Came to Cape May with my husband on his business trip, we found this restaurant on the internet. So glad we went, the setting was great and the food was excellent. He had mussels for appetizer which he said were awesome. For dinner I had the cheese ravioli, which were very good and he had the sunday dinner, a large... More

This decommissioned church is a wonderful spot for awesome plates full of fresh deliciousness. We love the homemade fusilli with meat sauce ragu and we order a side of sausage--which puts it over the top. I get the gluten-free pasta with it in place of the fusilli but my dinner mate swears the fusilli is the best ever. We started... More

Our foursome ordered four very different entrees and each was over the top delicious! Why did we order a small Margherita pizza for an appetizer?! Absolutely delicious pizza, but the entrees were big enough for two nights' meals, even without the pizza. Service was outstanding. I can't say enough. One of our two best meals of our 3 week vacation... More

We've dined here on more than one occasion. The last time we've came we had a great experience. The food was delicious, especially the calamari. Or server, Jake I believe, was exceptionally attentive, courteous and professional. Even though this restaurant was build in an old church, it has that awesome vibe to it.

We love Panico's and make it on our "do list" every visit to Cape May. Located in a "repurposed" church with a sophisticated and polished interior,. Panico's offers everything from complete dinners (many enticing specials to choose from) and a awesome selection of brick oven crusty pizzas. Imagine dining on pizza on a white table cloth, real linens, and candlelight???... More

First time eating here. Not disappointed. My daughter had a generous piece of grilled salmon with seasoning and basil. I had rigatoni. A must try is the Italian meatball soup. I won't spoil the surprise of how it is served! Service was great. Parking in rear. They do not take reservations but do a " courtesy list". It was packed... More

The Wildwood/Cape May area is an annual vacation spot for us and friends who live in the area brought us to Panico's. The old church was a different kind of setting for dinner and with a full restaurant the place was loud. The food was good(my wife and I had lobster ravioli) and it is BYOB. We only visit the...
