“Our favorite pre-show dinner spot”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

We always dine here before going to a Red Rocks show. They have a beautiful patio and a diverse menu ranging from pizza to fine Italian. Count on 90 minutes for dinner as they tend to be busy before shows and service, while generally good, can be slow. Portions are huge. Dinner salads can easily serve 2. We packed a cooler and stored our over pizza for after show munchies.

“Great lunch menu under $8”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

If visiting red rock amphitheater nearby I would go for lunch pasta dishes with choice of pasta...I like home style, salad, and garlic bread. Cara Mia chicken dish is great when you want non tomatoe sauce $10. Eat outside patio if weather is nice. Read my other reviews...I'm very critical...if you are in the Denver area this is a hidden gem.

“Great but pricey”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

We stopped for garlic bread an salad. Thank goodness for 1/2 orders.
The food was delicious, but portions quite large. Dinner prices are around $18.00 but you can share. We shared a 1/2 order of garlic bread and had leftovers! I had the mediterrian salad and finished it all. It was around $11.50. My husband had the house salad for $4.99 and it was better than mine. Nice dressing and same size as mine. I'll go for that one next time.
Nice to sit outside.....service good....nice ambience. We go there all the time.

“Great food, but pricey”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

It's a great menu, food was good. I think it's a bit pricey. We waited for our food for quite some time, and there was only one other table occupied. But the ambiance is fun and relaxing so we didn't mind terribly.
