My husband and I recently stopped over in Grand Junction during a road trip. We had intentions of eating at another restaurant, however, after walking past Il Bistro and smelling the wonderful aromas of the food, we decided to eat here instead. We are so glad we did. Our server, Amy, was excellent. The food was delicious. We both had... More

I have to start off with the fact that it was really late when we got into town on a Friday night and we were so tired that we first thought that we would just grab anything decent, the band playing at our hotel discouraged us from just eating at the pub there but as we checked the places near...

Found the restaurant by reading other reviews. Food was excellent. Service was fast and efficient. Had Costolette paired with a local Cabernet Sauvignon (Colterris). Very good wine to go with a very tasty main course. If you order Costolette consider getting the smaller portion since the larger one is only for the big eater (I managed but would have been...

My daughter and I had a lovely meal here before our rafting trip with CFI. After 4 days on the Westwater, our entire group opted for Italian so 10 of us went to il Bistro Italiano. Again, the service was terrific and the food delicious!

Okay, so I've only written a few reviews in these here parts, namely, a fondue restaurant in Telluride which was amazing and another restaurant down the street from this one which we'll never return to and now this one. Yummy. Like fantastic. As good as any restaurant with a chef that knows and loves food as the best restaurants anywhere.... More

Il Bistro Italiano featured unbelievably delicious homemade pastas and lots of fresh, local vegetables. I had the lemon-pepper fettuccine with fresh veggies; the pasta was perfectly cooked and bursting with flavor. My wife had the eggplant parmesan, which was to die for. Service was flawless as well.

Description
il Bistro Italiano opened in August 1998. Our focus is on bringing a combination of traditional Italian dishes together with some innovative ones created within the boundaries of modern Italian cuisine. The pastas, breads, sauces, and desserts are all made at the restaurant from fresh ingredients. Our wine list features a large selection of wines from Italy and Colorado, and whenever possible, we use local ingredients in our kitchen. There is always something going on at the Bistro, so look at the Events Section to learn of special wine nights, cooking classes or other featured events.
