    I’ll be honest, I was a bit concerned about what to expect when I walked in. It’s a tiny place, not fancy. However the food was awesome. I had the pasta that was freshly made there and probably the best I’ve ever had. My friend had the pizza and was most impressed since she can be a pizza snob. 😎 the crust was also freshly made. The wine was very nice too. The service was the best we experienced while in Denver. Bravo guys! We’ll be back.

    The food was great. Spinach and Artichoke dip is to die for. The best thing, however, was the service. Our server, and I think maybe the owner, were so friendly and accommodating. The dining room is small,but the ambience is great. I would definitely recommend this place for a good, italian meal.

    We really enjoyed this little gem. The server was warm and attentive, the food was delicious. The place and staff are small, so best to go early so you don’t miss out. It was a short walk to the Bellco theatre and we will definitely be back.

    We were greeted and seated promptly after they changed a high-top table for a regular table. The table was small but adequate. Service was friendly and efficient. The chicken parmigiana and salmon were well prepared and very tasty! The menu was limited but adequate. Prices were very reasonable considering similar offerings elsewhere. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    It was early when we went for dinner, about 6pm, on a Saturday, so the place wasn't very packed. Its a smaller venue, the food is really great, and the service is wonderful

    Looks more like a bar/ lounge. Small but interesting and the food was great. Menu is small - I ordered to pasta carbonara and it was delish.
