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.

well worth the drive from Cheyenne. Excellent prices for authentic italian food. Pasta is made fresh in house! Decent wine list, a little expensive by the glass, but bottle prices are reasonable.

Outstanding food and service. Great location. I’ve visited Ft. Collins twice and dined here both times. This is a must dine experience if you love Italian food. Great wine menu and you can order quality wines by the glass at reasonable prices. Good selections on a variety of dishes and preparations. Appetizer menu is excellent with multiple options. Dessert menu has several cheesecake options. They will bring a dessert with a candle for birthday celebrations. I highly recommend Bisetti’s

We enjoyed an early dinner prior to a concert at Lincoln Center. The food was excellent. I had the Harvest Squash ravioli and my husband had chicken parmigiana. I also had a Caesar salad. We each enjoyed a discounted happy hour beer/wine. Our server was not super friendly but the service was very good. We did not have to wait long for beverages, my salad, or our entrees. I would recommend this restaurant for a dependably good Italian meal.

This was an amazing dinner for my wife and I's first anniversary. When we got there our waiter was noticeably busy (almost overwhelmed looking) which had my wife and I worried but boy did he not let that effect him. Our waiter was extremely fast, personable, and accommodating. We normally go to another local Italian restaurant in town but we have been converted, the food and service was incredible! My wife and I each had Chicken Parmesan and shared a Tiramisu for dessert. Our waiter made it very special meal for our anniversary and we will be back very soon!

We've been to Bisseti's many times over the years and it never disappoints. I highly recommend their veal(or chicken) Marsala. This is by far the best Marsala I've ever had. We requested a quiet booth in a corner for our reservation and they provided exactly that. Decent wine list. My only con is that it's a bit cozy in the seating arrangement, but it's quiet enough that no one has to yell to have a conversation, so you aren't bothered by the neighboring tables. Ii still miss the old ambiance of the wine bottles on the walls.

Bread at the start was excellent
Ordered garlic bread and that was super too. That raised my expectations for the main dish, gnocchi

The gnocchi was not good . Would probably try one more time .

Pricing is average and not bad.

Another wonderful meal at Bisetti's. We were seated in the "cubby" per our request -- very quiet and intimate setting for a meal for two. Our server, Max, was attentive and knowledgeable. The wine was delicious and a good value. The honored a coupon without any hassles. The food was delicious as always - the Peach and Burrata app was especially delicious.

He asked if our visit was for a special occasion (48th wedding anniversary). The food was well prepared, and portions not overwhelming. The price of the meals was reasonable.

My wife and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary that bisetti's this past Sunday. I hadn't been there for almost 20 years and it was every bit as good as I remember. We had Ian as our server in to say he did a terrific job is an understatement. He was so friendly and efficient and down the Earth he made our anniversary even more special.

The food was phenomenal. We had a table of 5 friends so we ordered several dishes to share. The 48 ounce ribeye was like no other ribeye I have ever had. All of the pasta dishes were perfectly prepared and authentic in flavor. Our waitress was Kate and she was very helpful with recommendations and wine pairings. We will be back and recommending to all of our friends in the area. Thanks for a great night.
