We have eaten at Colore a number of times and the food is always very good. It's a great place to eat right before a Swallow Hill concert.

We got the special table requested, the food however was less than desirable, very below par. My how your standards have fallen. Not worth the $110 price at all. Steak was disgusting, blue cheese melt on top tasted like fish. I've had Better blue cheese out of a can. Lobster bisque literally made my girl sick. No lobster lots of sauce. Embarrassing the portion vs. The cost. Our dessert however rocked that we took home. So many other places to spend over $100 on two. The wait staff is impeccable and the only saving grace of our night, We won't be back.

This place is just generally good overall. Food is good. Atmosphere is good. Service has always been good. Weather permitting, the patio is great. Having read my own review, I need to make sure we get there more often....I just wish we lived closer!

Friendly staff and a casual vibe make this place feel like a true neighborhood gem. We started with the crispy calamari and steamed mussels. Both excellent. The mussels cooked perfectly and the broth flavorful and yummy. We split a 10” pepperoni pizza. Crust was crisp, good portion of mozzarella & pepperoni. Bill our server was attentive and fast with our drinks & food. The host checked in us multiple times. Carrot cake was delish with a macchiato to top off a great dinner. Thanks! We’ll be back!

Hard to say which was better, the food or the service. Colore is really happy people making great food! The Calamari Mixto is to die for. My only suggestion is to make the serving a little smaller since there is so much good food left to eat. Pizzas are really about the very best in town. Great wood oven crust. Pastas are all good as well. We are FOODIES for sure so a 5 Star review isn’t a “free gift”, this was earned and deserved! Any occasion can be a Colore occasion

We had a great meal here. Our food was terrific & the service was really excellent. The staff made us feel that they appreciated our being there - very friendly & personable. It's likely to become one of our favorite go-to restaurants.

Our 2nd Visit - Our New Italian Go-To Restaurant

The best overall Italian dining experience in Denver. I've been to Italy more than 20 times, and this is as close to Italy in Denver as one will get. Very nice casual ambiance.
Outstanding Service by attentive knowledgeable servers who know the menu ingredients in detail.
Excellent authentic Italian food creatively prepared, using old family recipes, and served at the table oven hot.
Do not miss the soups. They are simply outstanding. Not your traditional "Italian Wedding Soup" but unique creations of the chef. Served very hot as soups should be.
Always busy - recommend reservations.

Very loud on a Friday night. But food was good and wine special was great.

Neighborhood gem. Menu has something for everything. We had watermelon gazpacho, caprese and see bass with gnocchi. Perfect balance of flavors. Attentive service. Can't wait to go back.

Good pasta dishes. A great neighborhood hot spot. A bit noisy

I wish we lived closer--this would be a weekly event for us! Whenever we have family or friends in town we go to Colore. Yes, we know the owners, but that isn't why we go. The food is consistently fantastic and the staff are wonderfully service oriented. I also wish we could go more often so I would try more dishes--I'm hooked on the fish of the day with veggies and gnocchi, so sometimes I forget to look at the menu!

We had a delightful dinner Tuesday evening. I had the delicious Lobster Ravioli and my date had Chicken Marsala. She thought it was very good, over all it was a very good meal.

I'm a regular at Colore. It is our go-to place for birthdays and anniversaries. The lunch menu is great, and it's a good late night appetizers and drinks stop. The service is always friendly and suited to our needs. I can't recommend Colore enough!

The bread pudding is probably the best dessert in the USA!

Absolutely delicious, saucy, cheesy, lasagna . LOVE it. The host (maybe owner?) was very accommodating. Service is friendly and efficient. We also like their weekend brunch with bottomless mimosas and deserts, but I'd say kip the steaks and stick with their pastas.
