Server roulette, but all's well that ends well

We arrived for a later dinner. The wait staff was a little confused (three different young ladies said: "My name is xxxx, I'll be your waitress tonight"), but service was fast and the food was good. To make up for the confusion they gave us a free tiramisu for dessert.

Referred by our front desk manager Isaac for dinner/Happy Hour. Best bet in town, half price at the bar and half price bar food menu. Pleasantly surprised at the quality and portion of bar food menu. We had Pizza, and Sausage & Mushroom dish. Definitely worth the trip! great service and outdoor ambiance.

We heard that Cugino's had great Happy Hour specials and a new chef making great dishes, so we decided to check it out one afternoon. We loved the atmosphere sitting outside on the deck. Immediately we connected with our server, Alex- he was fantastic. He also introduced us to another server, Janie, who took extra time to tell us about... More

We went for dinner over the 4th of July weekend and made reservations before hand. We were seated right away and that is probably the only thing that went well. I normally don't write reviews, but for this experience I had too. I would classify this as overpriced italian. It is fine, but I definitely don't think it was worth... More

Sat on the river side deck, which was nice. Reservations are highly recommended. Our waitress was a little overworked, but was very nice and extremely cordial. The food and wine were excellent. My only suggestion is: order what you want. I wanted the lasagna but went for tortellini on a recommendation. It was good but the pasta was too doughy.... More

Very pretty location on Yampa. Portions are small and tasteless. My wife had the pasta and which was a grand total of 6 bites. The pizza I ordered had meat on only one piece. The place is fairly expensive and not worth returning for another chance.

We ate with a large group including several vegans. The menu offers several options for vegans and some interesting items beyond the pizzas. The crust on the double crust is very thick so beware if you prefer a thinner crust.

I've lived in Steamboat long enough to see Cugino's switch owners a few times and I am excited to report that John and Sharon just might be the ones that stick around! They and their staff are warm, welcoming, and easy-going with special requests. The happy hour is a great option in town for some personal gourmet pizzas and other... More

It was my husband's birthday and 4 of us were planning to go out to dinner to celebrate at his favorite Italian restaurant in Steamboat. I called the restaurant mid-afternoon to find out what time they closed since it was a Sunday evening and the Steamboat dining magazine I was looking through only indicated their hours were until "Close." The... More

Sal, I am truly sorry for poor experience with us, we don't try to disappoint, BUT on this occasion we surely did, it seems a comedy of errors occurred on our side which lead to such an interaction. I am sorry that my staff didn't take a reservation when they had the chance, everyone here knows we do, this would... More

At 6pm on a Saturday night the restaurant was not particularly busy but they must have been having major problems in the kitchen. Our server was very enthusiastic but after getting our drinks we waited a whole hour for our appetizers and then our entree turned up 5 minutes later! Salads were included with our entree but they never turned... More

Jacqui Thank you for coming to Cugino's. You are very correct, this was not one of our finest days in the kitchen. As the chef and owner it was a difficult day, I am sorry for that. We have increased our staff on the busiest days and begun training our new staff on executing their steps of service. As the... More
