The place smells delicious and was packed. We were sent to the basement lounge where no one exists not even staff. Then we called and we were told it was a byob and to help ourselves with the bottle opener. 20 minutes later and still no staff is down here offering anything.. water, appetizers .. nothing. Very odd.

3rd time was not a charm. Going downhill fast. Went there on evening of 1/21 with 6 other adults and found service slow and food disappointing. All three of the people who ordered fish found it over cooked. When we told our server, she said "Oh" and walked away. There apparently is no real management overseeing the restaurant. Save your...

The food here is really good, but they tend to use too much pasta and not enough seafood or meat. If they would put a little more real food on the plate they could easily be a 5 star restaurant. The bread and flavored olive oil was delicious. The salad special the night we went was excellent. The seafood dishes... More

We are long time customers of Panico's. We have come to be used to the long wait especially in the summer time. Last Saturday night ( 1/14/16) we arrived and were told that the wait was 30 mins. An hour later we were still not seated. When we finally were served the dinner was not hot. The portions ( a... More

Went to Panico's on Saturday 1/14, very disappointing. Ordered specials, served cold, sent back, and reserved cold. This was one of our favorite restaurants in Cape May area, NO LONGER. Chef sent over complimentary deserts but even the deserts weren't up to usual standards.

We vacationed in Cape May after Christmas and were not sure if any restaurants would be open. Panico's was on our list to call as it is a BYOB and near our hotel. Not only were they open and had tables available but there was a decent size crowd and a very chic/cool/welcoming vibe! I had the pizza without cheese... More

Arrived right as they opened and felt warmth as soon as we walked in. Just a really nice vibe as you enter this old church converted to a warm friendly restaurant, the warm bread may have had something to do with this. We were all very happy with our meals especially mine, the Veal was really good. We had cheesecake... More

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
