This restaurant was recommend by local people in Manitou Springs, and justly so. Excellent food and service, and not that more expensive than other restaurants in the area. Located on the main shopping street in Manitou Springs.

Amazing Italian food with lots of fresh ingredients. Grab the girls for lunch, order a nice pasta and chianti, and plan to spend a couple of hours relaxing in Old Colorado City. Or, check it out for a date night. Very good place for a quiet dinner.

Went here with family on advice from some locals. They were completely right on. We had no reservations, but were seated fairly quickly. Very popular with locals, which is a good sign. Everyone from owner to waitstaff to cooks, very attentive. Very tasty food. Will go again & would recommend to everyone.

We checked out Paravincini's for the first time on Christmas Eve 2011. It's now become our favorite restaurant in the Springs. The bread served at the table is warm and fluffy. Dipping it in oil and balsamic vinegar is a yummy way to start off your meal! We enjoy the calamari arrabiatta as our go-to appetizer. I love the lightly breaded calamari pieces and my husband loves the peppers! The only thing I do no care for is their house dressing. It's a little too vinegary for me. However, hubs disagrees and enjoys it. The lobster bisque is to die for! The frothy goodness is just heavenly! For an entree, I've tried a couple different items, but my absolute favorite is the pesto cream with scallops. The sauce is out of this world! Don't forget to save room for the tiramisu with a glass of limoncello! Their house-made after dinner liqueur goes down smooth and is a great way to end your meal. Service tends to be from extraordinary to good. We've not had a bad experience. As other reviewers noted, it can be a tad noisy, but it's never distracted me from my company or my meal. Prices are average for a nice Italian place. I'd say our average check with appetizer, entree, dessert, and drinks is normally about $80. I could gush on and on about how much I love Paravincini's, but it's making me hungry....!
