Everytime I eat at the cherry tomato I am reminded that I love this place. Not only is it a local gem for me but I have introduced many people to this restaurant.

Have dined at Cherry Tomato many time and have never, ever been disappointed. This is true Italian in the Park Hill area. The menu is traditional, yet they are willing to modify any entree to you taste. The service is excellent and the food is made with fresh ingredients and is bursting with flavor. They are kid friendly to the... More

My husband and I are traveling cross country from Alabama to Oregon. When we began our trip, we resolved to seek out good local restaurants rather than eating at chains. The Cherry Tomato certainly fit the bill! It is a charming little Italian restaurant in the also charming Park Hill Neighborhood. The staff was very friendly, the wine was very... More

Had a party of nine but Cherry Tomato had no problems seating us and servicing us well. Good Italian selection, attentive staff and a fun evening.

What a hidden gem! Some of the best Italian food you will find in Denver. Definitely worth the trip. Service was outstanding. Very friendly and attentive staff that is extremely knowledgeable about the menu and what to recommend. Chef Tony is an amazing cook. All the ingredients were extremely fresh and my pasta dish was a perfect " al Dante".... More

I had the Pasta Puttanesca and it is now my new all time favorite Italian dish. The flavor was intense and fresh and delish! So good that I can't wait to go back for more. My friend had pasta with button mushrooms and garlic butter. Light and wonderfully tasty. I took some meat lasagna home and wow, was that GREAT!!... More

If you don't know a local, you probably won't know about Cherry Tomato. This is a family owned, neighborhood trattoria that appears to be located in what appears to have been an old time pharmacy. If you love Italian food, you will appreciated the menu. There is something for everyone, adults and children alike. The dining area is cozy and... More

From the moment we walked in, this friendly neighborhood trattoria stood out for its warmth and hospitality. The wait staff service was impeccable...hitting just the right note of down-to-earth with professional and efficient. The appetizers all looked so tasty that choosing which ones to order was the toughest part, and the entrees were lovely home-cooked pasta dishes. I would recommend... More

As a local I love finding smaller establishments locally owned to frequent-and with the cherry tomato, I have found that! I read the reviews about the service being slow and it being a small place-although those are true that didn't stop me from trying it out. There was a wait when we arrived but we chose to sit at the... More
