Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was our first visit and our service was pleasant. Dinners were deliciously made- not too spicy or salty but flavorful. For this small city this restaurant is a treasure we relished. The tiramisu was very good and topped off our evening nicely. We’re looking...forward to another visit soon.More

We loved the food and atmosphere. We felt like we were in Italy! The new location at 421 Brach Dr is close to us so we go for drinks at 3 pm for happy hour and appetizers. They also have a private room for parties...too!More

We chose the restaurant because it was close to our hotel and they had good reviews. Their website said they were open until 10PM. We arrived before 9PM and were told they were only serving in the bar. Unfortunately it was not pleasant with harsh,...bright overhead lights. The waitress was nice. They had a couple of good wines by the glass. We ordered the bruschetta but the tomatoes had been soaking too long in their sauce. Our pasta entrees were just okay. I wish we had better things to say about this restaurant.More

This venue is reminiscent of 80s family Italian eatery’s charm. Great staff! Great food. My spouse chose a scampi dish with noodles while I went with the eggplant parmigiana. Both were excellent dishes. We also sampled a flite of wines. If you are seeking Italian...do not miss this place.More

Ristorante Pantuso was perfect for our group of 45 members as it is located in the Clarion Hotel where we were staying. It was so handy for us to book some dinners there as well as take advantage of the happy hour at the bar....They handled our group well and the food was delicious. It was so easy to work with the owner and she is a hard worker. A few of us sampled the restaurant before the group came and the food then was outstanding as well.More

Pleasantly surprised by this Italian restaurant attached to the Clarion Inn. Hotel eateries can be wonderful or more often times mediocre, but the service here was exceptional and the food was delicious. I had a custom pasta dish ( shrimp scampi) and my friend also...asked for something original - our plates were licked clean! If I’m back in the area, I will stop here for a meal.More

Our bread was dry and stale. Our minestrone soup was tasteless without the required northern white beans, almost like a broth and my paste dish was way al dente and the beef was very tough. Not a satisfying meal. The service was very good.

The Pantuso is a fantastic, family owned and operated restaurant. They have a dining room or lounge (great for watching the NBA playoffs) so getting a table was a breeze. My son and I had the Veal Parmigiana and Chicken Parmigiana and both were delicious....Try their version of bolognese sauce - it’s unbelievable. It’s an inventive sauce with Italian Sausage. It is definitely not a traditional bolognese recipe as it is spicy, loaded with flavor. We had a great time chatting with the owner and her daughter. Definitely the best meal on the trip!More

The front desk clerk at the nearby Residence Inn recommended this restaurant in the Clarion Hotel. We got a seat in the bar which is always our preference and had a very enjoyable meal. The bartenders were friendly, helpful and attentive. We had a glass...of local wine and a very tasty Cosmo to start. I ordered the Chicken Parmesan and my husband had the Milano Chicken Florentine. Both were absolutely delicious! We would go back in a heartbeat! Maybe even tonight!More

We stayed at the Clarion and walked down to the restaurant and I'm so glad we did. We decided to eat at the bar, the bartender (maybe owner) offered two recommendations. We selected the Milano Chicken Florentine with a side grilled Caesar salad. We shared...the meal as it was a lot of food. We contemplated adding lasagna. We could have had leftovers had we done that, but I'm so glad we shared. It was a lovely meal. Cocktails were also lovely.More

This restaurant is assoicated with a hotel where we were staying. We had low expectations but were tired and just wanted a meal. Boy were we surprised. Service was awesome and the food exceptional. My wife and I shared Prosciutto Cotto Gnocci which was more...than enough for two AND very, very tasty. Can't overstate how good it is.More

The owners are fantastic! Christa always makes a point of stopping by our table and saying hello. They have great food and a good wine list with some local wines made in the valley. The list seemed smaller than in past years, but we found...what we wanted. The staff is great and very friendly. You can tell Christa takes pride in hiring good people. 10 stars!More
