5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2014 NEW credit card Amex Card Member Review

We have been to Wholly Cannoli a few times now and we are never disappointed. The family owned and operated restaurant has that special touch that comes from the heart of the people that are vested in it. We love the thin crust pizza and the homemade desserts are to die for!

This is definitely the best Italian restaurant in Denver. Delicious food, wonderful staff and friendly environment, not to mention the owner who is simply great! If you want to try authentic Italian food, this is the place to go! Don't forget to try their delicious desserts!

Simple, but delicious Italian cuisine. The smell, the taste, and the feel of the restaurant is stimulating. Service was a little slow, and sometimes disorganized, but the food was great. The restaurant was very busy for a Wednesday night with many people waiting to be served, and I could understand why after tasting the food. I tried several dishes and... More

I have picked up pizza from here many times. There is no pizza even close to as good as this pizza in the area. The desserts also are absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, I have never and I mean never had good service. There just seems to be no management or direction in the restaurant. I will continue to go here, but... More

This food is to die for. The chef makes excellent pizzas and pastas. The atmosphere is good. The service could use a little work but so far so good!

This 5 star review is for the pastries only. We visited this place shortly after moving here in December. My grandparents were Sicilian and I was excited to see the pastries after reading the reviews. Because it was a week before Christmas we walked into the restaurant and I was immediately assaulted with absolutely amazing and wonderful childhood food memories.... More

food is ok but the management lacks so the whole experience was unbearable. all the desserts taste the same (lard)...a few cans of paint can't cure this place. keep driving and make your time a pleasant one...

We live nearby and visit is restaurant about once a week. We typically order the calzones or pizza, although I do love the spaghetti carbonara as well! The pastries are even better than the food, and the "bug juice" wine is by far my favorite. G (chef) is so sweet, it makes me smile when he sees me and stops... More

Wholly Cannoli Cafe is located in a strip mall at Gartrell and E-470, in Aurora but almost Parker, Colorado. It has been in business for about three years, maybe longer, originally it was just an Italian Bakery and Pastry shop. Since then, it has expanded to a full fledged cafe and just recently expanded its seating area and kitchen. I... More

We went on a Saturday night and had to wait for only 15 minutes or so. It could have been faster but it is pretty small. Lots of people were coming in to grab a pizza to go, so I am pretty interested in trying one the next time. The server was nice but did not know anything about the... More
