Description: il Bistro Italiano opened in August 1998. Our focus is on bringing a combination of traditional Italian dishes together with some innovative ones created within the boundaries of modern Italian cuisine. The pastas, breads, sauces, and desserts are all made at the restaurant from fresh ingredients. Our wine list features a large selection of wines from Italy and Colorado, and whenever possible, we use local ingredients in our kitchen. There is always something going on at the Bistro, so look at the Events Section to learn of special wine nights, cooking classes or other featured events.

il Bistro Italiano is one of our favorite places to dine in Western Colorado! The food is always fresh and prepared exquisitely, and the service is impeccable! If you like Northern Italian cuisine, this is a "don't miss" dining experience!

In addition to having great food, Il Bistro has events like Tatpas night, 50% off wine night, and the one we went for last night - Polenta Night. Brunella had 3 kinds of polenta (the buckwheat was my favorite), 4 sauces (spicy sausage, mushroom, bolognese, and olive and caper with roasted tomato), 2 pestos (basil and tomato), and 3 cheeses....

If you are in Grand Junction and are a lover of authentic Italian fare then you do not want to miss a visit to Il Bistro Italiano.

We've been dropping in at Ron's Bistro for several years now and not been disappointed. My favorites are the unique salads and pizzas, but the pasta dishes are extraordinary. The pizza crust is thin and crispy, just the way it should be, which really highlights the well-thought out topping mix. The wine selection is perfect for pairing with each dinner... More

We dine at il Bistro every chance we get! There are so many dishes to choose from, even for those who have dietary issues. The dessert menu is yummy! Key Lime pie is my favorite! Check out the menus on their website. They use a lot of local produce and change their menu often.

The ambiance is nice, especially in summer when we can enjoy outdoor seating. The staff has always been friendly and attentive. It is refreshing to try new things here.

I lived in Firenze, Italia and this is the most authentic Italian food I've eaten in the United States. The staff is excellent and well trained. The food is fresh and the owners purchase and use locally grown produce. The wine selection is excellent. There is a lovely patio to enjoy during warm weather, and the indoor dining is equally...
