Went to the old Arvada location a long time ago and weren't that impressed, but tried the new place at the Fenton address in Wheat Ridge and really liked it. Good simple food, large portions, and the service was great for our table of six.

Best home style Italian food in Arvada. This is one of the original 3 Three Son's from North Denver. if you grew up in North Denver back in the 60's & 70's you ate at 3 Son's for the best Pasta and Pizza.

We were meeting in a nearby office and were recommended to eat lunch at Mama's. It is not someplace I would have stopped at being in a strip mall. It was a very pleasant surprise. The lunch food (spaghetti with Italian sausage) was excellent and the right proportion. The prices were also very reasonable (low) for a place in the... More

We ate here over the weekend, and throughly enjoy the food. This is a well decorated restaurant that changes the design based on the holiday. We had the margaritta pizza. It was made properly and had great flavor. Some restaurants skimp on the toppings, but this was loaded. We had enough to take home for another meal. We are going... More

I had the lasagna and salad. Wow! That was the best ever! My wife is an Italian cook and usually does not like any lasagna other than her own. She said it was the best she has ever had. Congratulations to Jimmy and Karen Sannino for a real gem!

I don't usually go out for Italian food. I am Sicilian and make my own pasta, sausage and sauce. This restaurant had good reviews so I had to try it. It was very good, I would return. The sauce was good without being overpowering. The sausage was excellent, however the texture was too fine, more like meatballs. The service was... More

This family-run restaurant is in a rather run-down older strip mall. Don't let the location fool you. Although the decor is modest, it's spotlessly clean and the family that owns the place produces some fantastic food! The pizza is hand tossed, and I highly recommend the Pizza Bianco with fresh garlic, roma tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. The garlic bread is... More
