For Valentine's Day, I took my wife to Paravicini's in Old Colorado City at the corner of 28th Street (lots of parking in the back north side). The dining rooms are nicely decorated and the bar looks great. The menu is expansive from traditional pasta dishes and "classics" to originals by Chef Franco Pisani. We began with chianti and a large Brushetta Pomodoro with fresh light Italian bread covered witih a mozzarella, fresh tomatoes and fresh basil; excellent. The house Italian salad had lots of spinach and a great dressing. Our dishes were $18 Fettuccini Gabriella (sauteed shrimp and scallops with garlic, basil, onions, and tomatoes in cream sauce tossed with fettuccini) and $20 Veal Giuseppe (veal scaloppini sauteed with spicy Italian sausage, onion, hot and sweet peppers, capers, olives, garlic, and olive oil). The Gabriella was a well-seasoned nice-sized proportion in a round dish. The Giuseppe came in a huge square deep-bottomed plate. There were three large portions of nicely prepared veal and just the right amount of sausage. However, there was too little spaghetti to go with all of the meat and veggies. This dish did have a serious burn to it. Unfortunately, we'll have to go back for their $9 lunches in order to have enough room to try a dessert. There is a gluten free menu.
