tapenade was served gratis with a nice assortment of bread -- delicious -- one of the best we've ever had. appetizers were both excellent especially the mushroom dish. both of our main course pastas -- one with a lamb sauce, the other a gnocchi with rabbit -- were perfectly cooked and delicious.

Great ambiance, prompt and courteous service. Food was fantastic, nice to have gluten-free options. We had the Caesar Griglia salad (grilled hearts of romaine -- Yes! it's good) -- Capesante (scallops) and Ravioli di Parma. Great seasonings. We plan to go back!

Showed up after travelling all day and had the best HH experience. Two martinis each, two mini pizzas, brussell sprouts and the eggplant parm small plates, only $50. We were full and happy and it was delicious. The bartender Corey was lovely and had nothing but good tips about the food and nice conversation. Would recommend!!

Hands down the best calamari in the world! And I'm not a huge calamari fan. The service is exceptional. We enjoyed everything we ordered....to the max. Then walk it off strolling around downtown....or take in a show at the Performing Arts Center (walking distance).

This restaurant is excellent. The food is Italian but not your typical overly salted veal parmesan type Italian. The dishes we tried were very original and very tasty. During happy hour the bar serves tapas style small plates which are identical to the dishes on the dinner menu. This permitted us to try multiple dishes. It was so good, we... More

We visited with a group of 7, no issue getting a reservation at 7pm, called an hour or so prior. Very helpful wait staff,food was great. I ate Grass-fed veal scaloppini with lemon, capers and sun-dried tomatoes, over mashed potatoes and spinach (a little expensive $35, but downtown Denver). Another member of the group was also Gluten free and had... More

Service was very good. Selection was very limited. Ravioli was good but not very tasty. Tortellini and meatballs were good but heavy on the sauce and too greasy. The peach sorbet didn't taste right so we left most of it uneaten. Overall OK but not worth the money.

I have been here on previous trips to Denver and it is always superb. Great happy hour specials, too! The craft cocktails and wine selection are wonderful. MUST TRY the Cavolini di Bruxelles appetizer!!! They are so light and tasty. Even if you don't like brussel sprouts, you will become a convert. I hosted a group dinner for 12 people... More

Lori is an amazing waitress and wine expert. The food is not your every day spaghetti and fettuccini alfredo kind of Italian fare. This is the real deal and Lori is available to help you pair the right wine with your meal to make the food sing. Even my very picky husband enjoyed the meal. Plan this for a special... More
