“Great find in Telluride!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

Friendly owner Sean greeted me upon my arrival. It was just me so I sat at the bar to eat dinner. The nice selection of dinner specials was inviting but I went with a selection from the menu. Great Minestrone soup to star was perfect with great flavor. I ordered the chicken parm which was prepared and served a bit unorthodox but very tasty. The chicken was a little firm though. For dessert I enjoyed a slice of their homemade strawberry cheesecake. It was excellent! A little pricey, so leave the young kids home.

“What a Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's hard to believe that I have lived in Telluride for two years and only just made it in to the Bistro. The winter dining room is a cozy two level room that holds about 10-12 tables. We were greeted warmly at the door and quickly given a table on a January Sunday night with no reservation. The menu looked great and the specials sounded fantastic. We were largely a soup, salad, and specials group and everyone loved their meal. I will certainly return here, even just for a drink and a bite at the bar.

“Hidden gem in telluride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is off the charts good if you like great service, fresh Italian food, and a great wine list. It's not easy to get in because there are very few tables. We waited about 45 minutes for a table of 7 and it was well worth it. There is a neat gallery attached that we visited while waiting and it made the time go by qxuickly. The gallery owner was there and shared interesting information about the featured artists. We will definitely be back to this great experience the next time in telluride

“Best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Absolutely our favorite place in town, winter or summer. Everything is delicious, but our favorites are salads, pasta, and pizza. Our only wish is that they had more room. Wonderful!

“Best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Although the menu is not as big as some other restaurants in town every item is great. Great pasta and pizza and the wine list is very good. Friendly service and cozy atmosphere. They don't take reservations but it's worth the wait!
