Diner Reviews
  • "Took a colleague from Roma here for his farewell dinner from his trip here. Food and wine were excellent and we all enjoyed the Italian cooking especially. I tried the lasagna as a test dish (you have to care to make it well), and it was great."

  • "We normally enjoy helpful, efficient and very friendly service at Locanda -- but this was way off. Long delay in food delivery. Three requests for (initial) bread were unheeded - it didn't arrive until after the long-delayed main course. Requested olive oil twice - also long delayed. And water glasses sat empty, again with multiple requests for refills. Took friends there for the first time - and had we not assured them that this was an exception to the normally great service experience, they'd never go back."

  • "Locanda del Borgo offers delicious Italian food across a wide range of prices, appetites, and special ingredients. The locals mobbed the place on the Tuesday evening my most recent visit, so a reservation is recommended. Everyone who works there is pleasant and efficient. Delicioso!"

  • "Overall, a pretty poor experience. We arrived with reservations but were told that if we wanted to sit inside, we'd have to wait. We then decided to sit outside, but still had to wait about 10 minutes. Our waiter was very good. Food was quite disappointing. Wonderful neighborhood with few surrounding restaurants, but I would rather drive a bit and go someplace with better food."

  • "A friend recommended I try Locanda Del Borgo instead of my usual Italian spot for my birthday dinner. Bravissimo! The food was delicious (fritto misto, cheese plate, lasagna, bolognese, a cocktail, and shared tiramisu). Best calamari I've had. Great place to sit and take your time chatting between courses. Will definitely be back!"

  • "My wife and I were in town for the weekend and needed a last minute dinner spot on July 4th. A waitress at a wine bar we visited earlier in the day recommended Locanda and as it turns out it was not far from where we were staying. From the moment we entered until the last bite we knew we had happened onto a gem. The service was friendly, prompt and not overbearing. Our waitress, Emily, was knowledgeable about the menu generally and specifically and was also very helpful with the wine list which is almost entirely Italian. Having been to Italy I can heartily recommend this gem in a quiet neighborhood to anyone looking to have expectations exceeded."

  • "Had dinner with another couple on July 2nd. EXCELLENT meal with exemplary service. Very extensive wine list! We had a very slow dinner (4 hours!) and the restaurant was not bothered by this. In Europe, the table is yours for the evening; here they want to turn the table over 2-4 times in a night, so having a management that was not bothered by our long dinner was a treat. We have just returned from a month in Italy and I can truthfully say the food at Loconda Del Borgo is very authentic Italian, not Italian-American. If you have not tried this gem of a restaurant, I encourage you to!"

  • "Have eaten here several times, but this time I felt it was subpar. Veal was not as tender as one would expect, margarhita pizza was highly salty. And the wooden chair seats seem to be getting harder. Will go back but not anytime soon."

  • "My 5 and half year old daughter and I went and were led to a very small table jammed in between two others which already had diners seated at them, the rest of the restaurant was fairly open. Why would you jam your patrons in like that? I inquired about sitting on the patio. I was told that the patio was for "other reservations" and that the hostess had to check. We were able to sit on the patio, however ,I overheard the hostess use the same words to other diners with reservations. "those tables are for other reservations" and led them to tables that were not great. Sadly this restaurant may come off of one of my favorites lists due to this poor level of service from the hostess."

  • "We went to this excellent restaurant for the first time based on a recommendation from a co-worker. The service was attentive without being overbearing. My wife had the Lasagna and I had the Spinach Ravioli with short rib filling. Both were delicious. We definitely plan on going back with fiends. Our only peeve was that we while it was only the two of us we asked for a larger table which fits us better. The hostess insisted that we sit in a smaller "for two" table. During our hour and a half there most of the larger tables sat vacant. I think a restaurant this good could up their service ethos a bit and accommodate a simple request. Had this been handled better, I would have given the restaurant 5 stars."

  • "I've taken 2 out-of-town visitors here and both are excellent cooks from different parts of the country where excellent restaurants are plentiful and both of them can't wait to come visit again - a HUGE draw being Locanda Del Borgo. The food is top quality and just plain YUMMIE! And booking through OpenTable is so incredibly easy and reliable."

  • "We have eaten at Locanda many times and always enjoyed it. Last week we went twice, once with out of town friends and once by ourselves. We have reviewed this restaurant before so there is not much else to say except all of the pastas and sausage is homemade and it shows. Our friends were blown away by the quality of the food. The wine list is very attractive and there are some good buys. When you go, ask for Steven to be your server. He is excellent. If you like authentic Italian food this is the place for you."

  • "I"ve been to this restaurant many times and am never disappointed. This time, the restaurant did not have a record of our reservation (made via Open Table the previous day). Fortunately, we were able to get seated anyway. I had the eggplant pizza this time - delicious. The wait staff was perfect - not hovering, but available when needed"

  • "It was nice to be in a neighborhood restaurant, surrounded by leafy greens, sort of quiet, and hidden. Enjoyed the covered patio. Waiter was nice and knew what he was doing. Food excellent. I will go back."

  • "This food is excellent. The service is great. The atmosphere is a warm, neighborhood feel. I truly enjoy coming to this restaurant and always feel satisfied after I'm finished. Only thing I would say, is that the chefs should be more open to modifying as needed for their guests. Overall, I had a lovely experience "

  • "We continue to bring different friends to this wonderful restaurant. They are very accommodating with special diets and not compromise the intent of the dish. The risotto is to die for, as well as the pasta with mushrooms, sausage and herbs. We enjoy the early dining before a play at Lowry. The waitstaff is so good and attentive to watch for our timing to get us to our function and not feel rushed."

  • "Locanda Del Borgo is absolutely fantastic. The food is the best Italian cuisine I've had in Denver. I had Branzino and some pasta and they were both fantastic. I'll make a point to come here more often."

  • "This truly is a neighborhood gem. The selection of italian wines is excellent. Don't be afraid to order wine by the glass. You will get a healthy pour and a good glass. The menu is varied from pizza to veal. There is always a good fish dish, but don't get too committed until you have heard their specials. "

  • "This is a great authentic Italian restaurant nestled in a neighborhood. Definitely worth the trip. Reasonable prices and all cooked to order with fresh ingredients. "

  • "I always enjoy Locanda Del Borgo. Some of my favorites are eggplant parmesan, pizza, lasagna. The only downside is that the main dining room is noisy so I choose the patio when possible"

  • "The selections were excellent -- although there could be more vegetarian choices. The specials were excellent. Service was good for the most part, but they were very busy -- it appeared numerous tables were receiving their entrees at the same time. Definitely would go back!"

  • "I had a reservation for party of 9 and received a call the same afternoon to confirm. At that time, I was asked if sitting outside would be ok. I noted that is was only if it were warm enough. I was assured it would be. It was not. Yes, there were heaters, but the zippers on the "tent" were broken, so all the cold air was blowing directly on our table. It was uncomfortable and made our food get cold almost immediately. The server was very nice but only came outside to our table occasionally, not enough. Do not sit outside unless it is the middle of summer and don't let them tell you otherwise!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "I had the halibut special which was cooked to perfection- especially the spinach! There are a lot of vegetarian options. One note is that all of the bottles of wine are pricey. It would have been nice to see a couple more bottles in the $30 range rather than all being $50."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "Great restaurant. A neighborhood gem. But it astounds me they don't put some acoustic paneling on the walls/ceilings. Frequently so loud it's hard to have a conversation. Would eat there much more frequently if they address the acoustics/noise level."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The food is locally sourced free range etc. I haven 't had veal in almost 40 years, since I found out about crating, this is free range. Fresh humane food prepared simply seasonally and good for you. Daily a veal and a risotto special. A good gluten free pasta! Pinch me, I must be dreaming."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "The food has always been borderline. We have kept trying for a year since we moved into the neighborhood. It's so close it makes an easy night out. This time will be our last. The food was not good. too bad"
