Cafe Vino may be one of the best tapas places in town. Went there last night prior to a great performance by the Colorado State University Symphony Orchestra and combined concert choirs so we had to not dawdle over a big meal. We ordered just four small plates viz. a mushroom pate with locally grown Hazel Dell crimini mushrooms, macadamia nuts, cream cheese and truffled crostini; Italian meatballs in a marinara sauce, parmigiano, basil, crusty bread; gorgonzola pear ravioli with caramelized bartlett pear, gorgonzola, brown butter, toasted pistachio, port wine reduction; and, Chef's Risotto with prosciutto de Parma, peas, parmigiano reggiano, preserved lemon (these descriptions are taken from their menu). Each dish was top-notch in quality of ingredients, perfect execution in preparation, and plated beautifully! We need to return to try the other small plates which sounded just as interesting as the ones we chose! The plates may have been labeled small but the four we had were more than enough for us. Service was prompt and professional as well as having just the right touch of friendliness without being phony friendly. Only negative was that it was pretty noisy- perhaps due to FAC-ing people. A real winner of a restaurant!

Love this place for wine and tapas! The patio is especially nice and one of my favorite places to eat outside.

Celebrated my wife' s birthday with family. We have also been there several times with friends. They offer small plates that are innovative and well prepared. Good wine list, with several good wines by the glass, and a small offering of wine flights. Nightly bruschetta has always been good, this night's was roasted beet, arugula, and flavored goat cheese. Our table ordered seconds. They have excellent non-traditional pizzas and salads. The lobster tacos offered tonight were excellent. My wife and I have dropped in and were able to sit in comfortable overstuffed chairs in front of the fireplace. Good late night spot but also good for families because of the wide array of small plates offered.
