We look forward to serving you soon!
Lovely food and a beautiful garden area over looking a park. A hidden gem.
Bright, clean and welcoming. Good menu with varied choice. My opinion too much to choose from on a restaurant menu indicates food not as fresh as a diner would like. Panzo concentrated on getting it right. Food was presented well and served with a smile.
I booked Panzo for a group meal before a cabaret show at Hester's Hideout around the corner, and was overall disappointed. I do think most of the problems were probably down to short-staffedness. There only seemed to be two wait staff on on a Saturday night. Issues:
- They'd run out of burrata by 7pm.
- We all ordered the arancini. My friends the meat version, me the vegetarian mushroom version. They brought only meat versions - I didn't complain as I'm not vegetarian and the staff seemed rush off their feet, but if I had been a 100% veggie that would have been a massive problem as I didn't realise it was wrong until I'd started eating it.
- Half the starters arrived, and then we had to wait ten minutes for the other two, even though we all ordered the same thing.
- My pizza ('panzo') was cold, though toppings were good quality and tasty.
- We were waiting forever for rounds of drinks.
Other than service problems, the food just wasn't really all that. Maybe it was an off night but I probably wouldn't go back.
It is not difficult to find good pizza in London these days, but it also not easy to find a place with ambience and a level of authenticity that goes beyond the familiar offerings at Franco Manco and even the Neapolitan chain Rosso Pomodoro. While the restaurant insists that Panzo is not pizza, it certainly tastes like many a pizza I had in Italy, but for discerning pizza fans, it is true that the crust is distinctive from that which is traditional Neapolitan pizza.
I loved the charming atmosphere of vintage Italian posters and the restaurant's elegant informality was a perfect invitation for my personal group of friends to get to know one another.
Aside from my friend's wonderful company, however, the real highlight of the evening was an unexpected surprise on the dessert menu: Vin Santo - a traditional Tuscan dessert wine that I have not been able to find since I lived in Florence!
Absolutely delicious food, really nice reasonable wine, friendly staff - a lovely place to spend an evening catching up with a friend.
great specialist pizzas and salads excellent value friendly service
Great food - absolutely loved the pizza as the base was light, crispy and just right. Ambience a bit dull but it was a rainy early Saturday afternoon with only a few people in the restaurant.
Would definitely go back in the evening.
Enjoyed the food and ambiance. Super friendly staff. Would go back again!
Great tasty pizzas and absolutely great personal service (talk to Paul). Although house red was not bad - the wine menu needs couple of more red and white options. Also needs an option for a gluten free pizza crust, which become rather ubiquitous in many pizza places.
Panzo was just amazing. Great pizza, great service, pleasant atmosphere.
