Service was slow, Pizza was served burned. Server was made aware when pizza was served. Owner & Manager argued for nearly 30 minutes that pizza was "Perfect"!.

“what an improvement”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

When this restaurant first opened it was not a family friendly place to go.We went there last week and what a turn around! We were there at lunch which is great because at dinner people are lined up outdoors just to get in, The pizza was great, the salad my wife had is now her favorite in
Denver. The garlic knots are absolutely fantastic,also the macaroons for desert are a must!The owner now seem to also be friendly he even came by to see all was well. Recomend go at lunch, same great food no line!

“OVERCHARGED GRATUITY!”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

The selling point might be the atmosphere - except the place was virtually empty! The food was not really exceptional. In other words, for the money, it really wasn't that great. 9 of us went to celebrate a birthday and the staff didn't sing or bring a dessert. In fact they never offered dessert, but there appeared be a nice selection kept under lock and key up near the front of the restaurant. Price wise, they were a little on the high side. Dirty tables, silverware (had to turn mine back – twice) and not very good service (we all had to beg for refills on any drinks); they will need some work to have me back. The frustration came when they thought that their outstanding (not) service was good enough to warrant a "forced" 20% gratuity when most places only "ask" for 18%. The thought was that the gratuity is meant to make up for the lack of foot traffic. The whole experience was handled very poorly by the staff, thus I will not be recommending them anytime soon. If Johnny Carino’s couldn’t make it in this location, I’m not sure that these owners will do much better.

“Absolutely! Outstanding! Great Service.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The server, Marci is the "Best" we've ever encountered! She offered suggestions, new the ingredients for the dishes, labeled our to-go boxes w/ date and contents, and on and on.
Marci turned a good meal into a Great experience.
The Garlic knots were a pleasant appetizer if not a little light on the garlic, the Spinach Pinwheel was perfect. I had the Alfredo Fresco w/ chicken. Again outstanding.
Marci suggest with detail the Sfogliatelle. We asked for it to-go and she gave us heating/ toasting instructions for at home
She truly is the Star of this fine eatery.

“The Wine Was Good”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

Virgilio's seemed promising, but was disappointing from the very first course. The hot mozzarella appetizer sounded great, but was just a small bowl of half glop, and half milky liquid. Gross. The wings appetizer looked good, but the chicken was undercooked, and pink.

The most glaring problem of this restaurant is their pasta. From the spaghetti to the fettucini, it was cooked as a tasteless, sticky mess. You should not be able to pick up your whole plate of noodles with just one twirl of the fork! Even our kids commented on this. Unfortunately, the sauces did not do anything to redeem these dishes.

If I was the management of Virgilio's, I would be embarrassed to serve this food. I spent $150.00 for a party of five, and feel like I was robbed. Oh, and here is the best part. We had 2 kids celebrating their birthday but Virgilio's doesn't celebrate birthdays! Let's spend more money for dessert! There are too many real Italian restaurants in town than to eat this slop.
