Michael Garozzo opened the first Garozzo's in 1989 in the historic Columbus Park neighborhood. Today there are four popular locations in the Greater Kansas City area. Garozzo's prides itself on its signature chicken Spiedini dish, a Garozzo's creation, which has become a Kansas City staple.
Garozzo's has received numerous awards throughout the years including Best Catering, Best Pasta by Kansas City Magazine and Best Italian Restaurant by Kansas City Magazine, College Boulevard News, The Pitch and The Squire South Express. For the last nine years, the restaurant has been named Best Ethnic restaurant by Ingram's Magazine. In 2001, Michael was awarded Restaurateur of the Year by the Missouri Restaurant Associations.
Garozzo's is one of "America's Top Italian Restaurants" according to the prestigious Zagat National Restaurant Survey. It received a "very good to excellent" rating and was described as " 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."
