I want to help these guys, I live close by but nobody likes them. Maybe they need a new owner, $30 pasta , they say the meat is crumbled, but you can't find a trace anywhere? Lame. I always support local, tourists just don't waste...your time on these jokers.More

Saw on one of the reviews that the eggplant tower was a must try, and they were spot on. It was delicious, lightly breaded and with a very tasty sauce. The Italian sandwich was excellent. Quality meats in a lightly toasted bread and as the...side a hearty minestrone soup. Large outdoor seating area and friendly service. Added to our must visit list everytime we’re staying in Avon.More

Had discounted this place 2 years ago, but a friend wanted to try it, so we did. This season we were there twice, first time and last time. At entry, unfriendly owner asked us if we had a res. No. So he bruskly took us...to a table. Waiter, no smile, no graciousness, asked us about drinks. I asked him for some bread while waiting for meal. "its on the menu". I asked no complementary bread at an italian restaurant? No, sorry. Ordered a double sized ceasar salad (18.00) and entrees. After reasonable wait,server comes over with my entree and my salad. Since when do you bring salad and entree together. I asked. No answer or maybe a snide:you didn't ask for salad to come first. At this point my wife was p-----off. I eat lots of ceasar salads, and this one, for an outrageous 18.00 (this is Avon, not Vail). My wife's eggplant was satisfactory. My meatballs and spaghetti (18 or so) was not memorable. Will never return and will share our experience with friendsMore

We ate on a Wednesday evening and it was a full restaurant (made reservations). The family style salad was perfect for three of us. We all were very happy with our meals. I had the braised short ribs and it was excellent. Wonderful waitress and...very attentive. Would have loved to try the desserts but no room-they looked delicious. Highly recommend this place!More

Firstly our waiter rang in the incorrect dish for our entrees. It seemed an honest mistake. My food sat there getting cold while the other order was corrected. When the correct dish came out, which was the Chicken Marsala the sauce on it was very...strange. A typical Marsala sauce made with Marsala wine and Sherry. Maybe this is what they used but it tasted just like a brown gravy made from the powder packets. So it was basically noodles and chicken swimming in brown gravy. It was not good. The waiter never came to see how our food was and it was a relatively slow night, we could see him in the front area eating the incorrect dish he rang in. As a restaurant manager in Beaver Creek I would have absolutely offered 20% off or comped a couple glasses of wine for the mistakes made but we were still charged full price. (almost 200 dollars for two people) Poor service, poor food quality, high prices. Will not be back anytime soon.More

Located in Avon, right across from where the Walmart and Home Depot are located, this is a family style restaurant that specializes in italian food. Service was friendly and attentive. Good drinks too: from IPAs to limoncello mule and everything in between. Food wise, they...also have an extensive menu. And since this is family style, two people can share let’s say their house salad and something else. In terms of appetizers, we had their bruschetta with fresh tomatoes, garlic, extra virgin oil, etc The carnivoro pizza (small one) was delicious. It came with pepperoni, meatballs, sausage, and applewood bacon all in a red sauce. Their penne allá gorgonzola was another delicious dish: Gorgonzola cream sauce, chicken, red grapes! This one is in Avon but I believe they have another location in Silverthorne so you could end up there after some retail therapy at the outlet stores there.More

Better off at Olive Garden. A very mediocre restaurant in a Walmart parking lot. Better scout out a fast food restaurant to make up for the small portions and lack of flavor. I absolutely can not recommend this restaurant better off staying home and cracking...open a jar of Ragu.More

Property Improvement Fund (PIF) tax added to the bill without prior notification. When questioned the manager said all businesses in the area added this tax. We approached another business in the strip mall and they had not heard of additional tax.

We hesitated to try because of the poor reviews, but glad we did. Food was excellent, service great. We particularly loved the eggplant tower and the penne with vodka sauce and added shrimp. Both were tasty and servings generous. our server was very efficient and...friendly. We will definitely stop here again.More

While staying in Beaver Creek Resort we ate lunch at Sauce on the Creek. Our server was Shaynna, she was very helpful with recommendations from each of their menu categories. We followed her recommendations, my wife ordered the Chicken Parm sandwich w/a house salad and...I ordered the Meatball Sub w/a Caesar salad, both were fabulous! We would return because of the great service and a delicious food.More

First time customer with questions and food order requests. I joked about being high maintenance on pizza toppings for our pizza and the waiter said "It's just pizza". I was shocked. My eyes got really big and said how would your manager feel about that...comment? He said "you can tell him I said it....I'll go get him". Same server told the gentleman at the table next to us to "calm down" with obvious broad hand gestures. Salad was fresh and cold. Pizza crust was crisp and toppings fresh and tasty...served hot. But then again, it's just pizza.More

Ok well the pizza was pretty good and the appetizers where fantastic, but the service was absolutely horrendous. If you come here make sure your server is not Conner.

Could have been an off night… food quality was meh. We ordered the bruschetta which was served on what seemed like a stale baguette. Also ordered the Brussel sprouts which just didn’t taste right either. The char on them was way too noticeable. The server...forgot to place my sons order so we had to remind her while as we ate our meals. The Cesar salad was nothing to write home about either. It was interesting to see Parmesan cheese on the tables so covid safety must not be important up here. Probably should have ordered the pizza as that looked legit. Our server just didn’t seem engaged or like she wanted to be there. I’d like to return to try the pizza but not in any hurryMore

This was well reviewed and rightfully so. The food was great and we sampled many things on the menu. Even ordered to go 2 days later. Very well run establishment with excellent service.

The happy hour here is delicious and a great deal. I love the atmosphere, and especially the outdoor patio during warmer months. I have been here many times and generally had great service, though once I was completely ignored for 15 minutes after being seated....The host has usually been nice, but during my last visit, he was rude and acted like he was annoyed to have me there. The female host who was there as I left was friendly, so I assumed the first host was standing in until she arrived.More
