I came here with 4 friends, one being a PTown local, on a weekend early evening during the Early Bird Special period. That's what us old and/or frugal people do- knowing we are going to get an excellent meal at a good price. So here we were, with a reservation. We were seated immediately upon arrival in the main room,... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meals at this restaurant. The Salmon with roasted Brussels sprouts and veal Parmesan with noodle like pasta were delicious. Great ocean side dining!

The host was most welcoming. The clams and scallops were exceptional good, followed by a terrific tiramisu. The restaurant is busy and reservations are desirable. The view of the harbour is an added plus..

The food here was great! The staff was awesome, they even asked if I had food allergies. The drinks where good. They have an outstanding view of the cape.

We were looking for a place to have a nice casual dinner with our family. Although there was nothing glaringly wrong here, there was absolutely nothing special here. The food was mediocre at best, the service was fair and we felt rushed the entire dinner.. Entrees came out while we were still having apps and we had to get the... More

Stopped here for lunch and enjoyed the view and the lunch. We ate light but were pleased with the sandwiches we had. Service was good and prompt. Somewhat crowded but that is expected in this area.

A little too far for us to walk from our B&B so we took taxi and toward end of "P" town. Nice location. Reasonable prices for quality food. Good looking wine list. I wasn't hungry..so ordered "off the menu" a simple linguini in marinara sauce and Cin had Veal parmegan...also with marinara sauce. Portions were quite large and service excellent.... More

The Inn we were staying at recommended we try Fanizzi's, a short walk from where we were, and we are so happy they did! We arrived towards the end of the "Early Bird Specials", and were seated within a few minutes. Although the menu offering for the Early Bird Specials looked enticing, we deiced to order from the regular dinner... More
