We were crazy enough to try to accept an invitation from our friends to dine at Tony Rigatoni’s at 6:30 on a Friday night. We were becoming quite concerned as we pulled into town and saw how busy it was. We were certain we were going to have to go someplace else. Lo and behold- we found a parking place right across the street! Eureka!- when we got inside we were informed there would only be a 10-15 minute wait! We went upstairs to the new Roof Top Bar and found our friends. We started the evening off by relaxing with a glass of wine. We had barely had more than two sips when our names were called for our table. We were taken to a spot under the magnificent grape vine (WHAT?!?! In Colorado- you gotta see this thing. It is amazing!!) on the patio. My husband and I opted to do something other than our traditional pizza and salad dinner. We ordered the mussels- something we seldom do in Colorado. WOW! We were blown away by this dish. The mussels were extremely delicate yet meaty with the exact amount of chewiness. The broth was to die for. In fact our server Victoria (excellent, attentive server by the way!) suggested we take the left over broth home to add to our own spaghetti sauce. Fabulous suggestion! We felt like we were sitting in Positano enjoying an authentic Italian trattoria meal. All of our initial fears were cast away as we enjoyed a simply fantastic evening!!
