A word from Colore Italian Restaurant & Pizzeria
Colore Italian Restaurant offers traditional Italian American cuisine utilizing the freshest ingredients, skillfully prepared in our open kitchen. The food is straightforward, and prepared with traditional technique. From our Wood-Stone oven we offer New York style hand-stretched pizzas and calzones, as well as comforting pastas, traditional sandwiches, fresh salads and incredible desserts. A well balanced wine, beer and cocktail list featuring several local suppliers compliments the hearty fare. Housed in the first certified green building in Englewood, the interior of the restaurant is modern, bright and contemporary with large windows, butcher block tables, big cozy booths and soft red leather chairs. Ample adjacent parking and a street-side patio welcome guests to bask in the buzz of the new South Broadway. Minutes from The University of Denver and just south of the Old Pearl Street shopping district, Colore brings a modern feel and a comfortable menu to the South Denver.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Colore is one of our two favorite Italian restaurants, along with Cucina Colore (no relation). The staff is very friendly, always attentive, well trained and always seem to care. Food selection and quality is excellent. The place is light and airy, and just the right size. We will always go back and our family loves the place."

  • "This neighborhood place belies the wonderful food that comes from the kitchen. Unassuming building on an unassuming corner. But inside the staff is friendly, the food is great...and the peach bread pudding is out of this world!"

  • "Colore is a go-to spot, no matter how many people in the group! Plenty of food choices, atmosphere can get a bit loud when full."

  • "We tried Colore for brunch and it was really good! They serve a breakfast pizza, which is fun ad different, as well as more traditional fare. There were two Benedicts to choose from. Don't forget to try the Zeppoli= a light little "doughnut" treat with whipped creme and strawberries. Prices are quite reasonable, too."

  • "Walking into this quaint little restaurant we were immediately greeted by a friendly face and after commenting we were cold placed by the 'faux fireplace'. GREAT sense of humor! Once seated we agreed on the artichoke/jalapeno dip which was FABULOUS! I've had lobster ravioli in many places, and this was wonderful! The shrimp actually tasted fresh (this is saying a lot, I'm from the coast) and the ravioli were perfect!! I also had a few house martinis, equally fabulous. My daughters Chicken Alfredo was delicious! I would ABSOLUTELY return, just thinking of it makes my mouth water. Ok, onto the service, it was fantastic. What a great find! I can't wait to return!"

  • "Our first time to the restaurant and it was great! We were there early on a weeknight so it was a little quiet, not crowded but we had a nice booth by a window and the server was very attentive and helpful with the menu. Enjoyed our meals (lobster ravioli and penne w/sausage). We would go back. I think the pizzas would be good to try next! "

  • "We have made a point of dining there at least once a week. I love their Calore salad for lunch and my dinner favorites are their chicken saltimboca and their grilled salmon. The staff is exceptional, the ambiance is fresh and modern and the food is simply wonderful. Far from a "pizza place", their refined menu is more typical of a small high quality Italian restaurant, a result of the fact that their talented master chef is one of the owners. Chris, another of the owners, cheerfully greets arriving guests and escorts them to a table of their choosing. It's a great place with great owners and wonderful staff. Denny"

  • "We brought a large group in to celebrate, including a 4-yr old. Food was good but it took quite awhile to get bread brought to the table. The caprese salad would have been better with romantic tomatoes. The guys who split a 16" pizza raved about and other entrees disappeared fast. The birthday dessert was a hit! Chocolate always works. The 4-yr old was welcomed and with all the sports on TV, no one noticed his frequent voicing."

  • "Stopped here for dinner on our way downtown to "Amaluna" (Cirque du Soleil). Piece of cake to enjoy a leisurely dinner and still have time to make the show. Lots of selections on both the menu and the wine list. We had a bruschetta appetizer, then my husband ordered a pizzsa and my friend and I split a shrimp pasta dish --- YUM to both. We'll be back!"

  • "Consistently good food and service. I like this restaurant. It has good access. It has good food. It has a great atmosphere where you can carry on a conversation over dinner. You can have anything from really good pizza to fine Italian specialties. I will continue to use this restaurant for a regular eating place."

  • "This restaurant consistently serves good food. I have eaten several different items on their menu, even the pizza, and all are well prepared and tasty. The staff is usually very efficient and the bread sticks that they serve as a table treat are excellent."
    Dined on 4/26/2013
  • "The place was totally empty for the majority of the time we were there--rather unnerving and suspicious for a brunch city like Denver. I had the Frittata Caprese which was just average. The sauce was pretty bland and i didn't taste any basil at all, a hallmark of a caprese. My cousin had the same thing and felt the same way: not bad, not good. Just...average. maybe the pizzas are better but we won't go back for brunch again."

  • "We now make Colore our regular dining stop when attending concerts at Swallow Hill. This visit was for Denver Restaurant Week, which made it an extra treat. I always go looking forward to a calzone and beer, then get sidetracked by a special that I just can't pass up. Reasonably priced for a very good meal no matter what you order."

  • "Generally a good dining experience; however service for the main course was way too slow; after the apps we waited 20 minutes at least for the entre...too long!"
    Dined on 3/2/2013
  • "I'd definitely go back again to try more menu items when it isn't restaurant week. Their bread is what I can describe only as a mysterious blend of light, love, and air. I would go back just to eat that bread, so I can imagine what their pizza dough tastes like. The salmon with gnocchi was fantastic, and I don't like gnocchi (I stole some of my dining companion's). My pork chop, though, arrived tough, chewy, and completely overcooked even though I order it medium. They took it back and cooked me a new one, but the second round came with underdone potatoes. Excellent broth and beautiful flavors, if only all would have been cooked correctly on the same plate. Dessert was a mixed bag, heavy on the whipped cream."

  • "Caroline and Chris are two of the most generous hosts you can find. I found this restaurant a few years ago and have been coming back ever since! The food and service are beyond compare! You're always greeted with a smile at the door and your whole experience is an A+ from start to finish! I recommend this place to EVERYONE!"

  • "From the outside, this place looks like a simple "pizza joint." However, it's actually a very nice contemporary restaurant with a lot more on the menu than pizza. I enjoyed my dinner here, and would like to try the brunch sometime."

  • "This is a nice and cozy place to sit and relax while you have a nice meal. Maybe you have someone with you, or maybe you brought a significant other? This does not matter for this place is perfect. The decor is brilliant but simple and the service is lovely as well."
