Rustic and well planned, this restaurant's claim to fame is their homemade pasta. It lives up to everything they boast about. We had 3 different pastas and each pasta was done perfectly with the correct consistancy that homemade pasta is suppose to have. The sauces especially the Bolognese were outstanding. Service was good and we had a great casual dining... More

I was pleasantly surprised when I ate here. Most Italian places seem to have very bland flavors and be more or else olive garden clones, even at the higher end of the price range. Everything here was delicious, and they even had half priced bottles of wine on Sunday. Highly recommend.

Fantastic food from the spicy shrimp to the scallops and cheese risotto this meal could not have been much better. But not to be missed is the caramel and sea salt budoni. It is possibly the best dessert of your lifetime.

We love the chef's board, the wine selection and the mussels. My buddy from Lexington always wants to come here when she visits. We people watch and catch up and drink and nibble. And then go to Arhaus and talk about what we would buy if we had enough $. I love this place.

Awesome ambiance and great food. Went during Denver Restaurant week, but it's great anytime. Try the fig and goat cheese pizza.

Tried this during Denver Restaurant week. The appetizers (for example, the burrata with artichokes, lemon, pistachios, etc.) are incredible and the pasta dishes are definitely above average. They're handmade and you can taste that. The dessert I tried (salted caramel) was good, but very rich and needed to be broken up with some cake or something--it was straight pudding in... More

The meal started with a delicate Bruschetta appetizer. Next came the ambrosial seafood entree perfectly presented. All the dishes to follow were creative, beautiful and delicious.

Brilliant upscale decor and location with a misguided staff. Sadly the wait staff needs training in fundamental service. My experience 20min for a glass of water, an hour for 2 orders of small plates, and the floors were filthy . . . Restrooms worse (good indicator of how the restaurant is managed). Overall the food was good, but the only... More

We were more than happy with the menu selection. We were wowed by the grilled artichoke and the beet salad. The latter had a whipped lemony dressing that I want to go back for right now. The service was excellent also. Sort of a trendy casual atmosphere. Highly recommend.
