    We had a delicious meal with very good service. It was not very noisy either -- unlike its "partner" restaurant, Union American Bistro. The latter also has great food but the acoustics there are terrible. Kudos to the owners for both places -- food is well worth the visit!

    We live locally so have eaten here often. They always have specials, sometime change up their menu and have super happy hour small plates. My hubby loves the cioppino and I have several fav's. We both love the italian egg rolls ( not what you might expect) so usually begin with those. This visit, I had the dinner special which was a shrimp dish- shrimp wrapped in prosciutto and grilled feting on a bed of italian squash. It was delicious.

    Leaving in a small town Castlle Rock, I have to say that I'm proud tha we have Uniscali. I think it's one of the best restaurant in Colorado. The food is fabulous. Starting withtheir grilled bead drizelled with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and apinch of kosher salt. It doesn't matter what you ordered little or big plates, you won't be disappointment. About the service, AMAZING! The staff is friendly and on par.

    We had three entrees and two of them were just so-so. However, the one that was great knocked it out of the park (the lasagna). The other two just didn't have much pizazz (tortellini and the special - crab and steak). Since the lasagna and the service were so good, we will still go back. I think we would go back for the small plates and happy hour which looked incredible.

    After going nights Uniscali is not open or going without reservations, we MADE reservations and had a memorable evening. We had wonderful food and lovely atmosphere. The grilled salmon was fabulous with a twist of their own. Someone in the party had a pork chop that was enjoyed and another the special. We had people in our party who have eaten lots of Italian food in Italy and were very pleased. The restaurant is not spacious and was slightly noisy, but everyone was pleased with the choice and we WILL go back - with reservations made online!

    Celebrated a birthday with great food, wine and service. Double chocolate bread pudding with two scopes of salted caramel gelato was out of this world. Duck confit and salmon hit the spot. Will return soon. Happy hour wonderful. Wish they were open more than Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    First time here so they gave us free dessert! Friendly hostess, great waitress and great crab risotto for me and surf n turf for my husband. The garlicky shrimp appetizer was also so fresh and tasty. Very well done presentations and we loved the free home made limoncello at the end of the meal. The décor is minimal and a bit noisy but well worth it. I hope they have outdoor seating in the future. We will be back.

    I had high expectations for this place as I had been there before and it was awesome. This time it was good, but not as good as I'd hoped. They have a "limited bar" which meant my husband couldn't get the drink he wanted. Good wine list tho. The food is good, but I got the angel hair and it was not that flavorful. Again, good but not great. The service was very good- nice waitress and managers checked in. We will probably go back, but I'll have different expectations.

    We made our dinner a meal of small plates- beef pizza, spicy garlic shrimp, crab cocktails and italian egg rolls. If you havent been here and tried these, don't panic at how they sound. Everything was beyond delicious. The beef pizza was a small individual size pizza with a mustard based sauce with red peppers and no cheese. It was outstanding. The italian egg rolls are perfect little caprese salad type egg rolls sliced in half with mozzarella cheese sitting on a bed of house made pesto and a light balsamic glaze over the top. Everything was yummy and reasonably priced.

    Another great night at Uniscali. This has become a regular stop for us for special occasions or just when we want an excellent meal with great service. My wife had the special of the evening - a salmon dish with a killer sauce along with a hash that she liked almost as much as the salmon. I had a tenderloin with the lobster ravioli - again superb. Top off the great food with outstanding service and you have Uniscali!

    A small space with a mix of high tables and low as well as a long table seating 10 or so - family style. The mix was interesting and made for a friendly ambience that carried through the evening. Food exceptional for the area and prices surprisingly reasonable. All in all- one of the areas very best restaurants. Pretty noisy - otherwise a great find. It would be hard not to like this place a lot!

    Our waitress was outstanding and the food was excellent. We tried the Italian egg roll, the crab claws, the pork wings and the Cesar and the mixed green salads. All were excellent. We also had the tuna tar tar which was fresh and very good,but not as spicy as I might have preferred. Did I mention the waitress was outstanding/ perhaps the best service I can remember (knowledgeable, attentive, personalble and friendly). We look forward to returning as soon as possible.
