Went for dinner with my daughter and the Saucy Noodle became an instant favorite. Loved the atmosphere and our dinner was delicious. The portions are huge - lots of leftovers even with the half-serving size. We both had the cheese ravioli and linguine with meatballs. Will definitely go back. Call ahead to avoid the wait.

This is a great little restaurant in the Bonnie Brae neighborhood of Denver. Nothing fancy- just great Italian food in an informal and casual atmosphere. The staff is always friendly and helpful. You are acknowledged on your way out as well as your way in. We usually get reservations on Open Table because it is such a busy little place. We love the homemade lasagna and the linguini with meatballs. Awesome!
The wine list is very approachable and reasonably priced. They also have some great chocolate ganache cake and tiramisu for dessert. Your other option of course is down the street at the Bonnie Brae ice cream shop, but be prepared to wait!

Probably the worst Italian food I've had since moving to Denver. The location is the only redeeming factor, but honestly Olive Garden is better and I despise Olive Garden. They're only getting two stars because the staff was friendly. You're better off going anywhere else.

We made reservations on a Friday night and had to wait about 15 minutes after our reservation time. I love garlic so I was excited to try the place. To be fair, it was a weekend night and the place was crowded. Yes, it's all red checkerboard table cloths and red walls.We ended up sitting next to 3 large groups. Needless to say, it was loud. Not much for decor nor table dividers so it was loud. The food was overall good, bread with the clam appetizer dish tasted somewhat stale and "under a heat lamp" too long. Beware the half portions. Our dish came out with TWO average size raviolis and one sausage link for a $15 half order. It may be overpriced for that dish. Our waitress told us a half order was 5 raviolis. The raviolis were very tasty though. Make sure you know what you are getting. The chicken parmesan full plate was delicious. They have a wonderful red sauce. It may be awhile before we go back.

We loved this little restaurant in Denver. We were pleasantly surprised because it doesn't look like much from the outside. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere right down to the music was great. Sure to return to this little place.
