Diner Reviews
  • "Had the salmon risotto which was fabulous. The waiter was very friendly and accommodating."

  • "We've been going to Cucina Colore for years, but this past weekend was the worst we've seen it yet. We were forced to wait 20 minutes for our reservation, something I abhor. When I make the effort to clear my calendar, I expeect my time to be respected. The soup was less flavorful than Progresso. My pastaless lasagne was ruined by olives (I can't stand olives) and the substitution of my special request of arabiatta was ignored by the chef who gave me marinara. When I mentioned both problems to the waitress, she didn't offer to fix the incorrect entre, but just said she ordered as I requested, as I'd see when we received the bill. She also stated that the new chef had been making changes of this nature lately."

  • "We had a dinner with friends and the food was excellent. Noise level just right where we could have a conversation and been able to hear. Staff is very friendly and they don't rush you."

    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Enjoyed our pre-show dinner here. Had been over 7 years since I last ate here. Was as good as I remembered. Casual, but chic. Great for my daughter's birthday celebration."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Was very good. I had not been in a long time and enjoyed the menu offerings. We both had salads, my friend a special of the day, and I the salad with Parmesan covered artichokes. We sat by the window and watched the snow coming down. It was very beautiful. Parking was easy since they have their own lot."

  • "This is one of my favorite spots! Please put the tuna back on the menu!!!!!!! (The halibut was delicious though!)"
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "The veal was the worst I have ever eaten. My companion did not finish her eggplant lasagna. The service was mediocre. Even the lime in my drink wouldn't qualify for Walmart's grocery standards. I certainly would not have served it to a friend. By the end of the evening, I felt "ripped off." The only thing they have going for them is location."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Enjoyed their menu and atmosphere. It's very energetic during restaurant week, I haven't been there during regular hours. The peach bread pudding was outstanding."

  • "We went for Denver Restaurant Week and had a great time. We went on a Friday evening and the place was busy. Had an 830pm reservation and had to wait a short while. The wine list and cocktail list was great. The serving sizes were a good portion. The food was great. We had everything off the restaurant week menu and was not disappointed. We will for sure be going back."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "We had a lovely meal. There wasn't one dish that didn't meet a high standard. It is always enjoyable and never disappoints."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "For a different sort of Italian cuisine, try Cucina Colore. Every dish brings something special. Small but cozy, this place is a must for those looking for something different."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Cucina Colore is always our special occasion place to eat. Consistent. Wife enjoyed veal; mine was pasta."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "We always book Cucina Colore during restaurant week...although we need to start going there more often. We had a wonderful evening with great food, excellent service and a vibrant atmosphere. I would recommend this place for anyone at any time! There were no disappointments. From the app's to the entree's to the outstanding Peach Bread Pudding, it was an amazing experience for the taste buds."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We visited for "restaurant week" so the menu was limited and portions were smaller than usual. Even with the smaller portions we had left overs. Food was good and the service impeccable. We finished our meals with one of the best tiramisus I've ever tasted. Atmosphere seemed more family friendly than romantic date spot but we did have an early reservation."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "...and we had a reservation! We have been going to Cucina Calore for at least 15 years. The food is always good and so is the sevice. Sad that they couldn't accommodate the regulars along with the annoying restaurant week people."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I had a really nice evening there. The table wasn't ready for our reservation but there was room at the bar for a drink while we waited. The bartending staff was great, despite the crowd. When our table was ready, we had a great server. He came just enough to check on us but wasn't breathing down our necks. We ordered off of the special restaurant week menu and although we had three courses, everything was timed nicely. My veal scallopine was delicious. Overall, really nice date place and we will go back to check out their woodfired pizza!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "Saturday nights are always busy, but this one was exceptionally so. Our wait was rewarded by our outstanding server, Ester. She was both courteous and knowledgable. Her advice on food and wine choices were right on. As a result, we had a memorable evening at Cucina Colore, and we hope to see her again when we dine there."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Never a let down. As an Italian, I have a hard time paying $18 for a pasta dish but if done perfectly, its worth it! Cucina Calore has been a long time favorite of mine and its always wonderful. Its noisy, so not best for a quiet dinner."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My only disappointment was that we were at a little tiny table with no space around us. My husband is 6'4". We ate right next to another couple. Too many tables packed in too tight of a space. It wasn't the ideal Valentines Day ambience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Thanks for a wonderful valentines dinner, everything was perfect!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Perfect for a business lunch half way between downtown and the DTC. The pasta dish with roasted chicken was nicely spiced."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "The food was great, it wasn't too noisy, we liked the service and atmosphere. We will probably try to get back there next time we're visiting Denver."
    Dined on 1/30/2014
  • "Three of us enjoyed our meal on a busy Saturday nite in the Cherry Creek area. Convenient to the mall. Busy place, not for a romantic dinner. Food was good and prices reasonable. Service was quick and waiter very helpful and knowledgeable. Would go back for sure."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Crown Royal, calamari, salads, pastas, dover sole and peach bread pudding. TUCK ME IN!"
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "A very nice dinning experience and cost effective alternative to most other Cherry Creek dining options of this quality."
    Dined on 1/17/2014

  • "Went here for the first time for my moms birthday and the food was great. The only thing that kinda ruined our visit was our server. She is not welcoming at all and it seems like she's in a hurry the whole time which was irritating. Everything is amazing except the server. Will go back and hopefully the other servers won't suck."
    Dined on 1/9/2014
  • "When we most recently dined at Cucina, our waitress was rude and had quite the attitude. Both the food and wine were only mediocre. This place in really only good for casual pizzas anymore."
    Dined on 1/3/2014
  • "Food, service fantastic. Reasonably priced. Was a little louder than expected, but terribly so. Strongly recommended."

  • "Our New Year's Eve dinner was very enjoyable. The food was excellent, the service was great and the restaurant was full of energy."

  • "We called a head to get an earlier table and host / lady & gentleman were very accommodating and nice. Carpaccio - Was Great. I had the Spaghettini and it was ok. It was very under seasoned / bland. It was very soupy and presentation lacked. Shrimp cooked nicely, scallops over cooked, and noodles were cooked great. I didn't want to send it back because I was so hungry. Waitress was awesome. I would have loved to see spaghetti and meatballs and seen what you could have done with that. Website needs an upgrade."
