How many other people got food poisoning last night from their calamari?

My wife and I narrowed it down to only one common item we ate last night and it was the calamari strips that was described on the menu as a steak. She only had a bite and suffered way less than I.........what a night. We have always had good food and great service here, but after what I just... read more

Erica S, Owner at Sansone's Bistro, responded to this review

I am so sorry to hear you were sick. I would like to re-assure you all our products are handled with the up most concern for safety. In fact, we just passed our inspection with flying colors last week. The calamari comes in frozen, and the kitchen didn't thaw last nights calamari until right before service. We are currently checking... More

We celebrated Valentine's Day at Sansone's last night. The staff - including the chef always makes us feel welcome. Last night was even more special. A bit of sparkly went with our meals of tender, tender filet mignon and my perfectly seasoned scallops. We liked our vegetables, appetizers and DESSERT made with chocolate. I went home with a rose.

We met three other couples here for dinner before Christmas it couldn't have been a better choice. The food was packed with flavor and even though the server had more tables because someone was out, was kind enough to split the check, which is a pain I know. I would highly recommend this for a romantic dinner or during the... More

We went here for Thanksgiving and the food was good. There were a couple of inconsistencies..i.e. fiber like green beans, but we came at the end of the seating so it seemed like they were running low on things. Our pieces of pecan pie were much smaller than what we observed them serving earlier. Our server was professional, polite, but... More

Love everything about Sansone's. Beginning with the owners, Chef Robert and his wife Erica, who runs the front of the house. We celebrate EVERY occasion here. Very relaxing, wonderful food and excellent service. Oh, did I mention they serve Guinness? :-)

My lady had liver and onions and she ate it all, a very rare occurrence. I had the prime rib and it was tasty, cooked correctly and a generous portion (if you don't like the size offered, you can order a larger one - I ordered a larger serving). We both had the same side veggies . Beets and collards... More

Sansone's Bistro is a small restaurant with a dedicated and skilled chef/owner. The liver is truly delicious. The small plates include a delightful calamari which is sauteed, not deep fried. This is a rare find in Denver, but much more typical of how calamari is served in Europe. Yummm.... The wine list is eclectic, but has some nice old World... More

Ate at Sansone's with some friends for the first time. It's a small restaurant where you're greeted like family. Lot's of veal choices on the menu but only one beef selection. Growing up in a farm community I'm uneasy about eating veal knowing where it comes from. But they also have crispy duck, shrimp, and lasagna. This week they have... More

Made an Open Table reservation for 4 on a Saturday night. Was seated promptly, greeted by server and given water as soon as we sat down. Two of us had the salmon, the others lamb chops and shrimp dinners. The salmon is very unusual in that it is crusted with Nilla Wafers, so it is a bit sweet but delicious.... More

Sansone's Bistro feels like you are visiting a friend's home, and a friend that is a very good cook. The restaurant is small and cozy. Their menu offers a range of dishes and I have yet to order anything that I did not like. Prices are moderate and the service is very personal.
