“Great neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

I have eating here about 4 times in the last 5 years and was always pleased. The menu was different each time, Food remained at the same standards - innovative, good presentation and tasty. The portion was generous.The place seemed to be always busy even on weekday evenings. it is easy to see why.

“Great after visiting Denver Zoo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

This place is hidden near the City Park, and it is worth finding! Italian food with many options, certainly will keep your palate happy. From the appetizing bread to the tiramisu (large enough for sharing amongst 3 or 4) everything was delicious. Try to get there before happy hour as it fills up really quick from tourists as well as locals.

“Delicious meal, friendly staff, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013 via mobile

Found this restaurant as a drive by. Seated immediately @7:45. Excellent menu. The home made lasagna was awesome and filled the plate. Staff was attentive and helpful. Small neighborhood restaurant with outdoor seating available. Glad I found it.
