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. I had the fruitte di mare, my fave, with shrimp mussels clams and calamari in red sauce over spaghetti and the Caesar salad. It was... read 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

Nestled into a charming building in Park Hill this is a great place. The food is delicious, service is friendly and there is a nice wine list. This was my 5th or 6th visit and it is consistently a wonderful experience.

My wife and I were visiting our kids in Aurora and decided to take them to an Italian restaurant. We decided on the Cherry Tomato and are glad we did. The food was excellent as was the service. Their signature dish was very good as was the Seafood Fettuccini.

While driving through Denver this is the second time I visited this delicious, neighborhood restaurant with tasty Italian dishes. I had one of the specials which was pumpkin ravioli. The ravioli was homemade and the filling and spices were perfect. My friend had the carbonara which was very nicely seasoned and she claimed it was one of the best carbonaras... More

We loved this restaurant. The service was excellent. The food was excellent. It is a smaller restaurant but the atmosphere I absolutely loved. The cooking station is right there so you can watch the chef at work!
