First time visit to Carelli's made us regular fans! When you are hungry for Italian, do Carelli's. Reservations highly suggested because this place has a well-earned following. The family has a near 50-year history of serving their wonderful Italian fare. Plenty of variety on the menu, each served with nice presentation. The atmosphere is both inviting and comfortable in every... More

Wife and I spent the week traveling through Colorado and we really were looking for a "nice relaxing dinner" and we found it here. Ryan was our server and gave us a great wine recommendation. I had the Veal Parm and it was very good.

After stumbling upon Carelli's I'm reconsidering my self view as not a lucky person. Wow. Great Italian food? Check. Way good prices (even though we weren't really on a budget)? Check. Service staff to make you feel like you were the most important reviewers from the New York Times? Double check. Details - the lamb artichoke meatballs with pesto -... More

Everything is always great at Carellis, always busy so make a reservation. I prefer to sit at the bar but that gets packed before the dining room. Live music on Fridays.

The entres, salads, and garlic bread are so good, fresh, and hot/cold. The service is very good and attentive. We all enjoyed our meals.

Excellent food in a nice atmosphere. You definitely need a reservation on Friday night or you are looking at an hour wait. Staff was friendly and attentive. We had Chicken Saltimbocca and Veal Parmigiana. Both were large servings and well prepared.

Good experience, very nice upscale Italian restaurant. We make a point of going to local restaurants when we travel and this was a great choice. The interior is very clean and modern, the food and service was first rate. My wife had the Carelli Bianco which was delicious. I had Chicken Parmigiana and both dishes were well prepared and flavorful.... More

We went here on a Monday night and the place was very busy and lively. Outside seating was not available because of the rain but the inside was very nice. Good wait staff and the meals were excellent. I had vegetable risotto and it was so delicious! Good wine and beer list. It's in a some-what unattractive strip mall but... More

We could not pass up the coupon in the Daily Camera celebrating 25 yrs in business. Buy 1 entree.....get 1 free, lunch only Monday-Friday until 7/17/15. The dining room was hopping......(did everyone else have a coupon)?. Ryan, our server brought homemade garlic bread. Because we don't eat bread at home, we went through the basket in no time and Ryan... More
