We had dinner at Carelli's Italian Restaurant and we were not impressed. My husband ordered the lasagna and didn't eat half of it. He said my lasagna was better and I am not Italian or a good cook. Our order did take quite a while even though the place wasn't very busy. The pizzas that we saw looked really good... More

First let me say we are from the east coast and it is hard to find good pizza anywhere else. So we are very critical of pizza. The crust was just OK and way too thick, There was not enough sauce and too much cheese. It also lacked olive oil and spices. Like I said after eating pizza in Boston... More

I have taken a large group to Carelli's every year for over a decade. Always a super friendly place with excellent thin crust pizzas. My favorite - Spicy Hawaiin

We visited late in the day. There were several tables open but needed to be cleared before we could be seated. Our wait person was polite and came to take our order relatively quickly but had to return a couple of times to have us repeat parts of our order. The salad dressings were served on the side in the... More

Excellent food and service. The restaurant was bombarded with diners because of the weekend influx of the 1,000 people participating in the Colorado State Swim Meet. The staff met the challenge of the huge crowds with efficiency and still-great food.

We stopped here because of the sterling reviews on TripAdvisor. We found the menu limited to pizza, subs, stromboli... Where's the chicken parmesan? It didn't matter, anyway. The kitchen closed as we walked in because it was too hot for the staff. Go figure. Our first impression was that it was pretty dirty and unappealing.

Sat at a small outside dining area. Had the garlic steak. A little high priced but the food was good. Had a couple local beers while waiting. Enjoyable dinner

longtime Craig Italian eatery. Best pizza in town (its a low bar). Italian sandwiches and salads are really good. Convenient location downtown. Always safe bet.

Waited for over an hour for food. WITH staff tried to fill us with bread and drink. People coming after we were seated were served before we were with new ones coming after they left. I would not recommend this place for anything.
