My wife and I have been to Cafe Terracotta several times for lunch and dinner, so it was an easy choice for our anniversary dinner. As usual they came thru with a great dinner and great service. We both like fish and the salmon was great. Nice portion size, well cooked. Our second dish was the scallops and they were the best. Served on a serving of risotto which was creamy and very tasty. The service was great. Sat outside on the porch on a beautiful Colorado September evening. Cannot forget the calamari! Best way to start a great meal. We will go back soon!

In my experience (I have probably eaten there a couple of dozen times) Cafe Terracotta is two different restaurants in a way that makes sense to me. For breakfast and lunch it is a casual, fun completely competent place to get the usual menu suspects with some interesting twists such as chilaquiles. In nice weather the outdoor dining at this restored Victorian house is just delightful. For dinner Cafe Terracotta shifts gears and becomes an excellent fine dining experience. The relatively short but well balanced menu will have something for everybody including vegetarians. In addition to a vegetarian entree on the menu they are happy to talk about custom vegetarian options as well as gluten free options. Don't be alarmed you can also get a great ribeye. I have never had less than excellent service. The one time some eggs arrived just a bit overcooked the chef came out to personally apologize and quickly made everything all right.

Great Place to go for a nice dinner, birthday, anniversary or other special occasion, if not just date night! The bar is impressive, great wines and service and atmosphere. It is a little pricy but the food is exceptional. It is in Downtown Littleton, so there is not a giant parking lot, you may need to get there a little early to find a street spot. I just love downtown Littleton and this is just another reason I love to go.

Gave my husband a surprise birthday here for his 40th. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate our group and even suggested the 5280 Special, so we could save a little cash and try their fare. The food was excellent! They also make their own wine, which was very tasty. Our server really made the night and the atmosphere was romantic and fun. We will be going back. ( a huge bonus is the off-street parking, hidden in the back!) Great patio,too, though the weather prevented us from sitting outside- will go back just to do this!)
