My wife and I went to Panzano's the first night of Denver Restaurant Week and were thoroughly disappointed. This is suppose to be a 5 star restaurant and should be more like a 2 star! The best part of the meal was the first course, which was just OK, then quickly declined over the next three courses!
Both of our Caesar salads were dry, boring, and lacking substance. Mine had 1 tiny piece of anchovies, 2 small Capers, and 2 croutons.
WORST SALAD EVER!!
Our next course was the entrees, which were both very disappointing.
I had the :( ?Salumi Ravioli ~ Ravioli filled with cured meats and a three cheese blend, finished with a sage pomodoro ) - which tasted ok but had way too many sage leaves, which overpowered the whole dish. Also the Ravioli's were only about 1/4 filled, which I have not ever seen.
My wife had the : ( ?Burrida ~ Traditional Genovese seafood stew with scallops, shrimp, clams, Alaskan King Crab, squid and black mussels) - which was a far cry for a STEW. More like a water-tomato mixture with separately cooked seafood thrown in.
By the time dessert came around our stomachs were churning uncomfortably with bad food and could hardly eat the dessert. VERY PLAIN Cannoli and Tiramis?. The Tiramis? tasted like the store bought version from COSTCO, which is better.
!!!!!!!VERY BAD ATTEMPT OF FINE DINNING AND FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WE will NEVER be back, and I hope this review steers you far away from this place!!!!!
