Lanza's is a very cozy and inviting restaurant in the uptown district of Port Townsend. The service is always good and the food is authentic Italian. It has been a locals favorite for many years.

We came here based on the recommendation from the B&B we stayed in. It is a nice restaurant with a nice atmosphere. We had no trouble getting a table and service was very good. Food itself was nice, especially the tiramisu desert.

Some of the best food in the area can be found at Lanza's. It used to be listed among the best places in the Pacific NW to kiss. (Always loved that bit!) Freshest breads and pastas...you'll love it!

A group of six made reservations and enjoyed pizza and appetizers and salads here all accompanied by good wine (though they were out of Chianti!). Service is good and we always enjoy it here but prefer during the week when it isn’t as crowded. This...More

We were treated like gold. The wait staff is professional, yet friendly. We mentioned that we'd wanted to have our anniversary dinner there, but that they weren't open Monday. They treated us as if it was THAT evening. We had: Tomato Salad & Baguettes Roma...More

Good italian restaurant. Nice food. They use a lot of garlic, which was fine for us. Service is a bit slow but very friendly waiters. The restaurant can get quite noisy when fully booked. Very good spaghetti with meatballs. Definitely recommended.

There are a number of good restaurants Port Townsend. Most of them are located along the waterfront and are heavily occupied by tourists. Lanza's is different. It is located in a residential neighborhood well up the hill from the tourist area and not heavily patronized...More
