This is a great little hole-in-the-wall that serves amazing lasagna and pizza. Their sauce is flavorful and their homemade Italian house dressing is incredible. The service is good here, too; very friendly.

Five of us stopped there after an event in the middle of the afternoon;. A couple of us hadn't had lunch so we ordered drinks and a large pizza to share. We all agreed the crust was soooo good. My reason for not giving a 5 rating was because the pepperoni was burnt on a few pieces and I had... More

This has become a favorite of mine. I have tried other Italian restaurants in the area but think this is much better than the others. The service is friendly and excellent, food is very good and always fresh, cosy family atmosphere. Located in a small strip mall close to I-70 on the east side Kipling St. Near a 7-11 convience...

Great Italian food in a quiet little out of the way restaurant. You may have to wait at times, but well worth it.

We stopped in for lunch while driving through the neighborhood. So glad we did! The green salad included chunks of real, fresh veggies. I had a small pizza that was delicious. I haven't had any that good outside of New York. My boyfriend was very satisfied with his sausage and anchovy calzone, and especially loved the sauce.

WE ordered 2 take out pizzas. They messed up our order and we had to wait while they remade it. Then I feel they undercooked the replacement. It was soggy and the sausage was not done. Both pizzas were just luke warm and we live close. Overall, the pizza was bland, even the one with jalepenos. We really tried to... More

Was looking for some local flavored cooking while on a trip to Denver. Was staying in Wheat Ridge and stumbled across this little place. Had the "Italian Grounder - Italian Sausage, Roasted Pepper (Hot or Mild) Mozzarella Cheese and a Side of Homemade Sauce" and didn't know what to expect, but I was so pleasantly surprised at the great quality...

Don't know that I have ever had homemade spaghetti before and it was great. Enjoyed the eggplant with it. A nice neighborhood restaurant close to hotels. Don't judge it by the outside appearance.

We eat at this restaurant whenever we are in Denver area. It has good pizza and my grandson tried the ravioli and said it was the best he ever had. This is a small restaurant, but it has a very charming atmosphere. The service was very good.
