Wow! Homemade spaghetti!

Don't know that I have ever had homemade spaghetti before and it was great. Enjoyed the eggplant with it. A nice neighborhood restaurant close to hotels. Don't judge it by the outside appearance.

Great Italian food in a quiet little out of the way restaurant. You may have to wait at times, but well worth it.

We stopped in for lunch while driving through the neighborhood. So glad we did! The green salad included chunks of real, fresh veggies. I had a small pizza that was delicious. I haven't had any that good outside of New York. My boyfriend was very satisfied with his sausage and anchovy calzone, and especially loved the sauce.

WE ordered 2 take out pizzas. They messed up our order and we had to wait while they remade it. Then I feel they undercooked the replacement. It was soggy and the sausage was not done. Both pizzas were just luke warm and we live close. Overall, the pizza was bland, even the one with jalepenos. We really tried to... More

Was looking for some local flavored cooking while on a trip to Denver. Was staying in Wheat Ridge and stumbled across this little place. Had the "Italian Grounder - Italian Sausage, Roasted Pepper (Hot or Mild) Mozzarella Cheese and a Side of Homemade Sauce" and didn't know what to expect, but I was so pleasantly surprised at the great quality...

We eat at this restaurant whenever we are in Denver area. It has good pizza and my grandson tried the ravioli and said it was the best he ever had. This is a small restaurant, but it has a very charming atmosphere. The service was very good.

I went to this restaurant on recommendation from a friend. I should have suspected something, later realizing "Tex Mex" is her favorite food. Our family ordered the Italian fare here. I have to say I can make better spaghetti sauce cooking Hunt's spaghetti sauce with a few spices in the crock pot on low all day. I'm serious about that.... More
