This neighborhood gem is always packed!! Reservations are strongly recommended, yet they do a great job accommodating the less well organized. It can be a little challenging to find on a commercial corner in a residential neighborhood, Holly on 3rd Ave.
Once you find it you will be warmly greeted, promptly seated, and well cared for by the warm and knowledgeable staff. The wine list is extensive with great offerings in every price range. The beet salad is one of my favorites. There is plenty of arugula, fish, pasta, and scallopini specials nightly. Broccoli rabe is always on the menu.
This is a great place for friends and family. The atmosphere is relaxed and serious about food. Everyone will find a little unexpected treasure on this menu. Although packed, it is not noisy, and we frequently meet at Locanda for business.
So, the next time you are in Denver, between Cherry Creek and Colfax, just east of Colorado Boulevard, make a reservation and dine at Locanda del Borgo. You will not be disappointed.
