Garozzo's Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Known as much for its large portions as its cluster of rooms and Frank Sinatra soundtrack, this venue remains an institution, even as Michael Garozzo has opened more of his namesake restaurants. Massive platters of pasta are dressed with house-made sauce and served with baseball-size meatballs. Morsels of chicken breast are rolled up tight, coated in breadcrumbs, grilled and drizzled with garlicky spiedini sauce. Appetizers primarily consist of Italian standards: mozzarella fritti, veal-portobello ravioli in a Marsala sauce. The menu also includes feather-light potato gnocchi dressed with Asiago, Parmesan and provolone cheeses sugo as well as tilapia alla fresca. Among the best desserts are the tiramisu and the cannoli filled with whipped, slivered almond-dotted mascarpone. The wine list, understandably, is heavy on Italian vinos. Garozzo also has his own wine, the Garozzo Cellars Chianti Classico, an earthy Tuscan with soft tannins. Also located at 9950 College Blvd., Overland Park, 913-491-8300; 1547 NE Rice, Lee's Summit, 816-554-2800; 13505 S. Mur Len Rd., Olathe, 913-764-6969.

HUMILIATED! Terrible Service

My son was HUMILIATED by Garozzo's NOT HONORING a Groupon. Terrible service!! The manager made up some B.S. excuse and left him hanging with a Blue Valley West Homecoming Date! Bad form. Don't do coupons or special offers if you don't want to honor them.
