Prompt service and drink order. Wide variety of wine. Fresh hot bread brought first, and salads next. Usually dinner specials offered along with standard menu fare. Food was good, but nothing special. Atmosphere is cozy and relaxing. Simple dessert choices. Will return.

Wonderful people, delicious authentic Italian food, nice wine list, cozy romantic setting, reasonable prices, and a few steps away from a movie theater. What's not to love?!

Lanza's exemplifies the heart of a small town, the warmth and welcome of a neighbors table where you see old friends and meet new ones. Wander in the door (well, actually, reservations are recommended, they are that popular), and you are hit with a wave...More

Tonight we celebrated my birthday at Lanza's and it was a wonderful evening. Lori and many others greeted us warmly and made us feel welcome. We had great food and service and a most enjoyable time. We will definitely return again and again.

My wife and I loved everything about Lanza's. She had the chicken picata and I had the linguine carbonara; both were excellent. It's on our list of must-revisit places in Port Townsend.

Took my friend for her birthday, ordered the stuffed soul, big mistake. The entire dish was sitting in water. Worst experience I've had in PT. Sad birthday celebration and the older waitress was really unfriendly. I want my $72 back.More
