We were looking for a good, casual place for our first night visiting CO Springs. After checking reviews (both good and bad) we decided to try Paravicini's. I was hesitant about Italian because I have to eat gluten-free (I get sick). I asked about it when we walked in, and the manager showed me the "GF" notations on their menu, including a "gluten-free-friendly" section (there is a sort of disclaimer on the menu that there is still gluten on the premises, so, while there may be no gluten ingredients in a dish, they cannot guarantee zero cross contamination--however, I didn't get sick, so it was all good!). I had Salmon Francesco (salmon with lemon-butter sauce, artichoke hearts, and capers over risotto) and my husband had Steak Gorgonzola, with spinach, portabellas, and melted Gorgonzola. Both were fantastic. He says he's going to dream about this meal, one of his best in a long time. Our picky teenager enjoyed her ravioli, and they both loved the bread, delivered from a local bakery. Service was friendly and efficient (although they were definitely busy), and the manager stopped by to check in with us (he was pleasant--maybe he's newer than the one with the bad reviews?). With 3 entrees (salad included), a generous vodka martini, two glasses of daily special wine, two espressos, and dessert, the bill came to ~$100, which we thought very fair for the portion sizes and quality (but then, we're from Chicago, so our "reasonable" might not be the same as yours ;) ).
