I did a take out. The pizza is very good. But it is the oil and vinegar salad that is the best in the area. You will have to like garlic, and your lettuce soggy. It just soaks up the dressing. Our family loves it....More

Love the pasta, wings and pizza. The salads are the best with their homemade dressings. Great service. My favorite place to eat out in Washington.

Palanza's has the best pizza and fried chicken around, but their chicken and shrimp alfredo is OUTSTANDING! We love all of their appetizers too, with the mac n cheese bites being the best. I can't leave without getting a salad with their home made dressings....More

My husband grew up going to Palanzas and likes their pizza, but we are both very unimpressed with their service and inconsistency of the food. We have been to both locations and the biggest complaint is the staff. Loud, unprofessional, and unorganized can best describe...More
