  • "We had gotten so used to CC's excellent service that we were surprised when it fell apart. Waitstaff brought the wrong order, forgot to bring salads, etc. I am sure this was a fluke."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We dine frequently at Cucina Colore because it's in our neighborhood. It's especially fun to eat outdoors which is what we did the other night. We split a salad then chose pasta entrees that were delicious. We can't say enough about the staff and their fine service. Cucina Colore is a great place for lunch or dinner when you're in Cherry Creek North."

  • "It was my first visit here. Started out with a Colorado Car cocktail which was very nice. Followed that with calamari, which was very tender and delicious. I really liked my main course which was the pecan encrusted cod over brussel sprouts. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and will be coming back at some point."

  • "A friend from out of town waned to meet for lunch in Cherry Creek North and I wanted pasta. That equaled Cucina Colore on a recent Saturday. I made reservations and we sat outside. The weather and the setting were perfect. we were not rushed and had lots to catch up on. I got special service from our lovely waiter, whose name I have forgotten. The two young women at the entrance were very friendly and pleasant while I waited for my friend. It couldn't have been better. I love the parking behind the restaurant, a very nice touch,"

    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "When we arrived, we were told it would be about 15 minute wait. We were annoyed at this, what's the point of making a reservation. We asked if we could sit outside (the hostess didn't offer this). We sat outside and had great service. Our server was totally on top of our food and making sure that we were taken care of when our dinners were slow to coming out, due to three large tables (that were seated after us). The two managers totally took care of us by offering wine and dessert on them for the delay in the dinners. I always like this restaurant and they really made up for the seating issue and the delayed dinners. Will definitely be back."

  • "Would definitely recommend this place to everyone I know. The food was awesome the bartender Brett was awesome. The only problem I did have was that we had reservations and there was no hostess at the hostess stand, so me and my wife just went and sat at the bar, but Brett was very attentive and a great guy."

  • "Met up with my mom, who was visiting from out of town. We had a wonderfully comfortable booth and our waiter was very friendly and provided helpful menu suggestions. We were able to enjoy our time catching up over a great bottle of wine and basically closed the place down. The waitstaff did not try to rush us out, which we really appreciated. Great evening with delicious food! The tiramisu is fantastic! "

  • "Fresh food, invigorating wine selection, impeccable service and all with an inspiring presentation. Highly recommended for spectacular Italian cuisine!"
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "In my opinion, one of the better Italian (almost Italian/Mediterranean) spots in town. Its lighter Italian - not the heavy, over seasoned/salted, over cheesed traditional Italian food. Menu, service, wine, taste, are all spot on."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Cucina Colore has been a favorite lunch spot for years. Excellent menu and service. We sat outside for the first time this season and the weather cooperated nicely. The inside can be a little noisy if you want to "do business" or have a conversation...so outside worked well."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "The staff is great and the food is really good. We had sangria and so far, this has been the closest to the real thing I have found. "

    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
