Restaurant review: Fanizzi’s in Provincetown

AtanasLast Friday we were encouraged to try the year round Ptown restaurant, Fanizzi’s, located deep in the East End at 539 Commercial Street.

Fanizzi’s offers home cooking in sizable portions that will leave you full and content.  The restaurant features a Fish-n-Chips special every Friday that comes with a garden salad all for $11.99.  If that doesn’t tempt you or if you are not there on a Friday, the menu is mostly comprised of seafood and Italian plates from $19 – $26 you may also order several burgers ranging from $10.00 – $12.00.

We were happy and impressed by the friendly waitstaff that took time to answer questions about the menu. Shown above is Atanas who waited on us at Fanizzi’s. You will be in good hands, assuming all of the staff is as knowledgeable about the menu and helpful with their suggestions.

Shown below are the: stuffed artichoke $10.99, steamed mussels $8.99 and the garden salad that accompanied our fish-n-chips order.
Provincetown FanizziAlthough all were good, our waiter recommended we try the mussels and it turned out to be the most satisfying of the three.  The broth with white wine, herbs and butter was intoxicating and we devoured them.

The Friday night Fish-n-Chips deal may go down as the best value for your money in all of Provincetown.  The portions are hearty and the fish is only barely fried allowing you plenty of white flaky fish.  Another surprise was the accompanying house slaw made with vinegar.

FanizziThis family-style dining restaurant is a hike so plan to give yourself enough time to get there, but it is worth trying – if only for the Friday Night Fish-N-Chips special. To avoid a wait in season, make a reservation.

Hint: Request a table with a view overlooking the water.

  1. Fanizzi’s is one of our favorite places to eat in P-Town. And I agree: over the water is the only place to sit!
