Michael Garozzo's lifelong dream of owning a restaurant became a reality in April 1989. Now with locations in downtown Kansas City, Lee’s Summit, Overland Park and Olathe. As each restaurant opens, they immediately become award winners due to the outstanding cuisine and award-winning service. Ingram’s Magazine, Zagat National Restaurant Survey, The Squire South Express and The Pitch Weekly have awarded the restaurants by naming them the best Italian restaurants, best ethnic restaurants, best catering, and best pasta to name a few. The Zagat survey gave Garozzo’s Ristorante “a very good to excellent rating”. They followed by saying, “an Italian trio that supplies food so good you will taste it in your dreams, in a Sinatra’s kind of hangout; the attractions include frighteningly huge portions and a signature chicken spiedini that is among the best dishes in town”.
