Newspaper said they were closing so we went for one last time. Article said they were having a special dinner for two. Waitress said they weren't. No appetizers. Waitress wasn't very helpful or cheery. Not how I was hoping the last hurrah would go...

Great entrees and dessert! My date and I got the crab fettuccine and the cheese tortellini with shrimp, and split a creme brulee, and they were fantastic! Our appetizer, the caprese salad was mediocre, but overall great experience! Sad to see Bisettis go.

My wife and I found out that Bisetti’s is closing after January 31st, so we decided to have their dinner for two special for $39.00. We’re glad we came. It was the first time we dined at Bisetti’s. The service, food and atmosphere were great. We’ll be back next week for happy hour.

My daughter and I returned to Bisetti’s to celebrate her birthday. 21 years ago, when she was 16 I took my daughter to Bisetti’s for her first date experience to set the example for dating expectations. Both times we had a wonderful experience. Great food and great service.

This was the fourth year that I have treated my family to supper at Bisetti's the day we attend a holiday concert. While the food and ambience were exceptional as always, we did have an issue with our server. We did speak to the manager about the issue and she was quick to attempt to rectify the situation with a gift certificate. Overall, it was a good experience although not as good as in years past.

We were seated right on time. Our waiter presented the cocktail menu which contained a variety of interesting drinks. Service was quite good but my wife's meal was a big disappointment. The pasta was gummy and the seafood tasted old. My veal marsala was not only authentic but tasted exceptional. It is rare to get truly tender veal but Bissetti's accomplished that. Had my wife's meal even come close to measuring up, this would have been a five star review.

Bisetti's used to have a location closer to me, in Highlands Ranch, which I used to frequent because it was so good. I remember hearing that they were originally from Ft. Collins, so while up there we decided to visit. Just as awesome as I remember! The Calamari is some of the best I've had, and their Eggplant Parm is also to die for.

Great food, nice service, pretty restaurant. I wish they were still in Highlands Ranch, though!!

The food and service was amazing when we were there this past weekend! We have a picky 4 year old and I loved the option of the "toddler plate" off the kid's menu! It was full of things she likes and was so reasonably priced. Not an option I had seen at a restaurant before so I was really grateful! We all loved the bread and garlic butter and the special that nigh - spinach and artichoke ravioli with creamy tomato sauce and chicken was amazing!

We hadn’t been here for years and wanted to see if it had improved. It had not. It was OK at best. Food wasn’t the worst nor the best, boring but edible. Busy place but the service was better than the meal. The place is always crowded and so lots of folks must like what they do, but it’s not for us.
