Locanda Del Borgo
My fav Italian placeLocanda is tightbinvthecsweet spot. Not just a red spaghetti joint but still approachable food, moderate food and wine prices. Great entrees, frito misto, perfectly baked thin crust pizzas like I had in Italy. Go for snacks to share or a full meal. Friendly staff. Luv this place.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodfirst time dining there and found the food, drinks, and wine wonderful although i was with a party of 4 women, 2 of whom had a birthday, and the service, a few times, felt rushed...especially with the bussers. they didn't cover the fact they wanted that table turned - NOW! we know we want to stay for a leisurely dinner to catch up, etc., made a reservation, and tip very well because we know we stay a long time and the table could have been turned. anyway, that did not spoil the eventing because the food and wine were delicious.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood Gem!The food here is just wonderful. The fact that it's in a little neighborhood area just makes it all the better. We took friends who had not been before & they were delightfully surprised. We will all be back!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic ItalianWe have eaten at Locanda a number of times and always have had very good meals. Much of the food, including the pasta, sausage and bread, is homemade. The sausage and peppers appetizer is especially good as are the calamari fritto misto and the veal and beef meatballs. We had three different pastas and a risotto and all were very good. The wine list includes an excellent selection of Italian wines at reasonable prices. Service is very good and the room is very comfortable. Both indoor and outdoor dining are available in the warmer months. This restaurant absolutely is a neighborhood gem and provides a very good dining experience at good prices.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food at LocandaAs always the food at Locanda del Borgo was excellent. The food is always superb. However, once again the service was a bit weak.. For instance, I asked the busboy for more bread, and he said he would bring it--he didn't. I informed the waiter and he said he would personally see that we got the bread--he didn't either until reminded again 10 minutes later.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite Italian PlaceThis place is special. The food is wonderful. The portions are just right. We enjoy ourselves every time we go.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delightThis is a restaurant we always enjoy. The food is outstanding. The ambiance is perfect. We always ask ourselves why we don't go more often with such excellent menu selection.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLocandoEnjoyed it as always. Good food and service was paced correctly. I do wish they would change their seating habits. No matter that we always have a reservation, they always try to put us in the worst table, by the kitchen. They should save those tables for Non-reservation parties, or late arriving parties, NOT patrons who always have a reservation and are on time or early.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA great neighborhood restaurantWe will absolutely be going back We had a great meal, and the house made pasta is worth the trip5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMfredWe had eaten there before. The quality of the food was very good as it was the first time. However, all of us thought that the prices had gone up and the portions have been reduced.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Choice in DenverThe food, wine and service were all excellent. We will go back next time we are in Denver.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Gluten free optionsThey were very accommodating to my gluten allergy. There were a lot of options for me. Food was very good5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood place!Very lively neighborhood place...amazing italian food...one of the best pizzas in town...sit at the bar or try the patio on a nice night!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eveningOnly table for 4 on a Friday night available so we thought we would give it a try. Terrific room, and very well executed menu and price point. Service was slow even for a full room ( I don't know how we got the reservation). Professional bar that can make a martini as ordered. I agree with one reviewer said they were glad the east of Colorado Blvd crowd didn't know About this place but I will spread the word.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFun RestaurantIt was a very fun evening at this restaurant. Food was delicious, drinks were good and the atomosphere was lively.
Wished it was in my neighborhood!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyableOur evening was very enjoyable. True to Italian tradition, we weren't rushed and were able to have a nice conversation with friends. 3 in our party had the veal special which was most delicious. 1 had the ricotta gnocchi which were light and very tasty. The tiramisu and panna cotta were very good desserts. The Frangelatto was too much Frangelico and whipping cream and barely a tablespoon of gelato.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food and service wereOur food and service were outstanding. Try the spinach lasagne; it's unlike any other.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLocanda is reliably excellent.Locanda is reliably excellent. A fair price for very good food. Service used to be somewhat of an issue, but not anymore. The menu offers a good variety and a good range of prices.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMTreat yourself!One thing I love most about Locanda Del Borgo is that that friends who live west of Colorado Blvd. haven't even heard of it. The food is just wonderful - lots of variety, so tasty, and great specials. I had the halibut special the other night and it was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. We always start with one of the vegetable sides as an appetizer and the roasted brussel sprouts (not on the menu) are a favorite. Lunch and dinner are a treat at Locanda!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Locanda Del BorgoI've been to Locanda Del Borgo twice now. Both times were terrific for everyone. Food was delicious! After eating, we looked around and it felt like all of the tables had finished eating and were just relaxing and enjoying each other's company over another glass of wine. No rush.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood hangout thatNeighborhood hangout that also pulls people from across Denver4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMOn an icy, wintry eveningOn an icy, wintry evening (in what was supposed to be spring), Locanda del Borgo was the perfect spot to warm up with a great-tasting bottle of reasonable wine, eat delicious gourmet Italian food, and celebrate a friend's birthday. The four of us agreed that the food and service were excellent, and we plan to return soon.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe got to sit outside in theWe got to sit outside in the enclosed patio upon request and we had it all to ourselves! Had a wonderful dinner with a dear friend and could actually hear each other speak4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a wonderful restaurantThis is a wonderful restaurant with great staff and a reasonable priced menu. We love Denice, our server, and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten at Locanda delI've eaten at Locanda del Borgo three times, but I have only ever had the Fettuccine with House Sausage and Three Mushrooms. I love it so much that I cannot bring myself to order something else. However, my friends have ordered other items on their menu and have all had positive experiences, so I'm guessing the food is good all around. They also have excellent desserts for the most part. The one BIG disappointment is the panna cotta. STAY AWAY if you are a fan of this particular dessert. I and several friends tried it, and none of us liked it--not even a little bit. The consistency is more like jello than custard, and it is completely devoid of flavor. Stick to the tiramisu or gelato, which are both very good.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Cherry Creek atmosphereGreat food. Cherry Creek atmosphere without the hassle.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways always have a wonderfulAlways always have a wonderful time. Thanks for being so consistently good!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMNot as good as usualWe have eaten here many times and always enjoy the cozy atmosphere and great staff. This time however my husband got the wrong dish---he ate it anyway and I got a pizza that was soggy, greasy and undercooked. Our friend got a chicken dish that she raved about. The waitress realized my husbands was wrong but he had already started eating it and we didn't want to wait for a new one to be prepared. Everyone misses the mark sometimes so we will go back.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food has always been veryThe food has always been very good here and it seem's to be improving. The big change was we had excellent service which had been lacking in the past. We look forward to coming back soon.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been here several timesI've been here several times now and have had consistently good food and service. The spinach mushroom lasagna is full of mushrooms, and the panna cotta is one of the best ever!
The wine list has lots of interesting choices as well.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular!This was our first time to visit Locanda Del Borgo and WOW am I ever so glad that we did. We live way south in the suburbs and though we have a few great Italian food places, the food and ambience here was spectacular and definitely worth the drive. The only thing I would change is to have the 2 top tables a little bit bigger. I felt a little crammed, but overall, a true neighborhood gem. We will be back. Thank you for your rating system as that is the reason I wanted to try it becuase of its high ratings and reviews.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery lovely! Went for a quietVery lovely! Went for a quiet long afternoon lunch. Food was excellent -in taste and in appearance. Had a lovely mushroom panini and chicken/ mixed greens/ etc salads - and gelato. The entire party enjoyed this restaurant.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent pastaWent for 5280 and everything was top notch. Will go back for sure.3/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite neighborhood spotWe recently moved out of Denver and will miss our favorite neighborhood eatery. The whole menu is delicious. Best pizza in Denver. Nice people. A real gem.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPlenty of good gluten-freePlenty of good gluten-free options for my friend. The big Seafood Salad was caramelized seafood piled high on perfectly vinaigrette-ed greens with capers. Ate every morsel and wanted more. Grilled chicken with roasted potatoes and spinach tasted authentic Italian. Hope diners seek them out on back side of complex, it's very worth finding.2/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
