Consistent high quality

We have eaten here on four different trips to Telluride over a 6 year period. Each time it has been excellent. It is small so reservations are smart. Tonight I had squash blossoms lightly fried in a tempura batter and filled with blue crab and cream cheese. Wait staff is very knowledgeable. Nice... read more

This little bistro on the main drag of Telluride is worth going to. I had the lasagna and it was great. If you try it I am sure you will agree.

We went here on a date and the food was good but for the price it lacked the wow factor. I ordered the chicken parmigiana, it was good but came with mashed potatoes which seemed a little odd since it's a Italian restaurant. The ambiance however is awesome and the wine selection is very good. The staff was very nice.

We walked by and we're tempted by the lovely outdoor seating and happy faces of those whowere dining there. Happened to sit near some locals who raved about all of the dishes. We ordered the specials, mushroom soup ahi nicoise salad. Sipped mimosas. A truly delightful lunch, very generous portions.

Sergio is a pasta genius! We discovered the Bistro last summer, and now it's a go to place for us each visit to Telluride (4 or so times per year). This year, my very picky 12 year old son declared it was the best meal he's EVER had... The outdoor seating is very romantic and whimsical. The setting is very... More

We walked by this restaurant on the main road of Telluride and decided to have dinner there. Although they have an outdoor patio, we decided to dine indoors due to the evening chill. We read the two menus, wine and food, but did not find any wine by the glass listed. We asked the waitress who told us they did... More

Outdoor ambiance is great, seating comfortable and noise moderate. Service was average and I was disappointed they would not add an egg to my wife's salad even though they offer an egg on another dish. The carpaccio was exceptional, calamari very good, arugula salad very good, and an overall very nice experience. Would highly recommend especially for a summertime lunch.

We had a wonderful dinner. All ingredients were organic and many were bought locally. Sitting outside we were surrounded by several hummingbirds. They only added to the atmosphere.
