The legendary romance of Italy is recreated in this eatery, which is cozy and intimate — just right for date night or a special anniversary. Though the ambiance is casual, there is nothing casual about the menu. Locally sourced ingredients are used to re-create some of Italy’s best-loved traditions. Start with Stracchino (mild flavor cheese with salami felino and fig crostini) before moving on to the main event: what is, perhaps, the best pizza in Denver. Try Pizza Aglio e Olio fresh from the wood-burning brick oven. Cheese lovers may prefer the Quattro Formaggi, which features mozzarella, gorgonzola, fontina, ricotta, and prosciutto di parma.

The Mile High City is known for its consistently lovely weather, so restaurants with outside seating areas are particularly popular. North Italia’s is one of the best, coupling great food with the fun of people-watching. Pasta is made from scratch, and the chef’s choice daily pizza keeps the menu lively. The casual, rustic farmhouse setting features a cozy fireplace for evenings when there is a chill in the air.

Red Gravy's chef and owner, Eric Brenner, learned the principles of good food by spending the first 10 years of his career in some of St. Louis’ best Italian kitchens. Every dish he creates is focused on simple, quality ingredients, which are combined in perfect balance to satisfy even the most discerning diners. Guests love Red Gravy for its unique take on pizza. Instead of the traditional Neapolitan-style found in most Denver pizzerias, Brenner designs pies in the St. Louis tradition. The crust is reminiscent of flatbread, and he adds creative topping combinations to ensure every meal at this restaurant truly memorable.

Viale’s is perfect for a casual night out, and it is a common date night destination for diners from all over the city. There is plenty of parking and a well-stocked bar, which adds to its popularity. There is a long list of traditional Italian favorites, but most guests choose the specialty pizza. Start with an order of Calamari Fritti (Italian herb butter, tempura pepperoncini peppers, giardiniera garlic aioli, lemon garlic aioli, marinara, and fried basil leaves), before moving on to the main attraction. Toppings can be customized, or diners can try a specialty pie. For example, the Bonnie Brae Bronx features calabrese salami, Carmine Lonardo's Italian sausage, and cup & char pepperoni.

There might be more than one BJ’s, but the Aurora Restaurant & Brewhouse chefs are committed to creating a unique experience. This restaurant takes comfort food to the next level, transforming childhood favorites into dishes worthy of an adult celebration. BJ’s pizza is an unexpected combination of Chicago-style pies with Southern California influence. These pair perfectly with a selection from the award-winning craft beer list. Of course, it is critical to leave some room for dessert. A visit to BJ’s isn’t complete without a taste of the signature Pizookie.
